The GEO Group Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

GEO’s full year 2012 earnings reflect a positive adjustment of $79.0 million related to the elimination of certain net deferred tax liabilities associated with GEO’s REIT conversion; a $0.9 million after-tax loss attributable to non-controlling interests; $6.2 million, after-tax, in start-up/transition expenses; $3.2 million, after-tax, in international bid related costs; $9.6 million, after-tax, in REIT conversion related expenses; $0.9 million in M&A related expenses; and a $5.0 million after-tax loss related to the early extinguishment of debt. Excluding these items, GEO reported Pro Forma income from continuing operations of $1.49 per diluted share, for the full year 2012 compared to $1.42 per diluted share for the full year 2011.

Net Operating Income, Funds from Operations (“FFO”), Normalized Funds from Operations (“Normalized FFO”), and Adjusted Funds From Operations (“AFFO”) are widely used non-GAAP supplemental financial measures of REIT performance. GEO also uses Pro Forma Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EBITDA as Non-GAAP supplemental financial measures. Please see the section of this press release below entitled “Note to Reconciliation Tables and Supplemental Disclosure - Important Information on GEO’s Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for information on how GEO defines these supplemental financial measures.

2013 Financial Guidance

GEO confirmed its previously issued financial guidance for 2013 and issues additional financial guidance for the full year and first quarter 2013. GEO expects full year 2013 AFFO to be in a range of $2.78 to $2.92 per diluted share, or $200 million to $210 million. On a GAAP basis, GEO expects its income from continuing operations for the full year 2013 to be in a range of $1.70 to $1.80 per diluted share.

GEO expects full year 2013 revenues to be in a range of $1.51 billion to $1.55 billion. GEO’s full year 2013 Net Operating Income is expected to be in a range of $410 million to $420 million, and full year 2013 Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in a range of $320 million to $330 million.
