GEO expects its third quarter 2012 revenues to be in a range of $410 million to $415 million and its pro forma earnings per share to be in a range of $0.42 to $0.43 per share, excluding $0.04 per share in after-tax start-up/transition expenses and international bid and proposal expenses, and also exclusive of transaction and financing expenses associated with GEO’s previously announced acquisition of the partnership interests in MCF.
GEO expects its fourth quarter 2012 revenues to be in a range of $413 million to $418 million and its pro forma earnings per share to be in a range of $0.42 to $0.43 per share, excluding $0.01 per share in after-tax international bid and proposal expenses.
GEO’s earnings guidance reflects the activation of the Adelanto ICE Processing Center West in California in August 2012 and the previously announced continuation of the Golden State Community Correctional Facility contract in California through December 14, 2012, partially offset by the previously announced deactivation/transition of GEO’s managed-only contracts for the East Mississippi and Walnut Grove Correctional Facilities in July 2012 and the Marshall County Correctional Facility in August 2012.
GEO’s 2012 financial guidance does not assume the potential reactivation of approximately 7,000 current beds in inventory which GEO is actively marketing to local, state, and federal customers. The after-tax carrying costs associated with keeping the facilities idle represent approximately $0.15 per share, of which more than half are non-cash expenses. GEO’s guidance also reflects approximately $0.18 per share in after-tax intangibles amortization expense primarily related to the acquisitions of Cornell Companies and BI Incorporated.Stock Repurchase Program On July 14, 2011, GEO’s Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program of up to $100.0 million of GEO’s common stock effective through December 31, 2012.
