The GEO Group Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results And Provides Update On Potential REIT Conversion

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 $0.41 to $0.42 per share, excluding $0.04 per share in after-tax international bid and proposal expenses. GEO’s fourth quarter guidance reflects some variability in GEO’s U.S. Marshals Service populations at facilities which typically experience seasonal fluctuations.

GEO’s earnings guidance reflects the activation of the expansion of the Adelanto Detention Facility in California in August 2012 and the previously announced continuation of the Golden State Community Correctional Facility contract in California, which has been extended by the State of California through June 30, 2016 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 6,000 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 $0.14 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 approved a stock repurchase program of up to $100.0 million of GEO’s common stock effective through December 31, 2012. Through the end of the third quarter 2012, GEO had repurchased approximately 3.9 million shares of its common stock for approximately $75.0 million.
