Private Letter RulingGEO has completed an extensive analysis of the REIT requirements and believes that it could meet the REIT operational and technical thresholds following the divestiture of its health care facility operations by year-end 2012. GEO expects to take the necessary steps as approved by the Board to be able to operate in compliance with the REIT rules as of January 1, 2013 and does not need to receive a final private letter ruling from the IRS before January 1, 2013 in order to do so. GEO intends to continue to pursue a private letter ruling from the IRS affirming its ability to operate as a REIT.
