The GEO Group Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

GEO’s 2013 guidance already reflects the expected discontinuation of GEO’s contract with the State of Alaska for the housing of approximately 1,000 Alaskan inmates at GEO’s Hudson Correctional Facility in Colorado effective July 2013. In 2012, the contract generated approximately $23.0 million in revenues.

Additionally, GEO’s 2013 guidance reflects the December 31, 2012 GEO Care Divestiture, representing approximately $165 million in annualized revenues. Further, GEO’s 2013 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.

With respect to the first quarter 2013, GEO expects AFFO to be in a range of $0.63 to $0.70 per share, or $45.0 million to $50.0 million. On a GAAP basis, GEO expects its first quarter 2013 income from continuing operations to be in a range of $0.38 to $0.40 per diluted share. GEO expects first quarter 2013 revenues to be in a range of $377.0 million to $382.0 million. GEO’s first quarter 2013 guidance reflects approximately $0.03 to $0.04 per share in additional employment tax expense as a result of the seasonality in unemployment taxes, which are front-loaded in the first quarter of the year.

Note on GEO Care Divestiture

GEO divested 100% of its interest in the GEO Care, Inc. legal entity on December 31, 2012 and entered into a five-year licensing agreement to allow the new owners to use the GEO Care service mark and domain name. The divestiture of GEO Care, Inc. was not equivalent to the divestiture of GEO’s entire GEO Care reporting segment. The divested business was comprised of Residential Treatment Services and a correctional health care services business operating in publicly operated prisons in the State of Victoria, Australia. Residential Treatment Services held six managed-only health care facility contracts, totaling 1,970 beds, and provided correctional mental health services for the Palm Beach County, Florida jail system. The correctional health services business operating in publicly operated prisons in the State of Victoria, Australia was part of the International Services reporting segment. The GEO Care reporting segment has been renamed GEO Community Services and now consists of the following three operating segments: Community Based Services, Youth Services, and BI Electronic and Location Monitoring.
