The GEO Group Reports Fourth Quarter 2011 Results And Announces Adoption Of Cash Dividend Policy

The GEO Group, Inc. (NYSE: GEO) (“GEO”) today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2011 and announced that GEO’s Board of Directors (GEO’s “Board”) has adopted a dividend policy and expects to declare quarterly cash dividends beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Financial Results - Fourth Quarter 2011 Compared with Fourth Quarter 2010

GEO reported total revenues for the fourth quarter 2011 of $406.5 million compared to total revenues of $374.4 million for the fourth quarter 2010. GEO reported net income for the fourth quarter 2011 of $18.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to net income of $23.0 million, or $0.36 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2010. GEO’s fourth quarter 2011 net income includes $5.2 million, after-tax, in start-up/transition expenses and a $0.1 million after-tax income effect related to the loss attributable to non-controlling interests.

Excluding these items, GEO reported Pro Forma net income of $23.9 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2011 compared to Pro Forma net income of $26.7 million, or $0.41 per diluted share for the fourth quarter 2010. Fourth quarter 2011 Adjusted EBITDA increased to $81.5 million from $68.4 million in the fourth quarter 2010. Adjusted Funds from Operations for the fourth quarter 2011 increased to $47.6 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared to $39.0 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2010.

George C. Zoley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GEO, said: “We are pleased with our fourth quarter and year-end results, which continue to reflect sound operational performance and earnings results from our diversified business units. We have provided our initial earnings guidance for 2012 which is impacted by the deactivation of our California contracts, additional start-up and staffing expenses for our GEOAmey project as a result of incumbent employee laws in the United Kingdom, and approximately $0.15 per share in carrying costs for our idle facilities. Notwithstanding these factors, we have issued strong Adjusted Funds from Operations guidance for 2012 of $3.18 to $3.34 per share, which is indicative of what we believe is the strength of our core operations and cash flows.

“In an effort to continue to create shareholder value, our Board has adopted a dividend policy, and we currently expect to declare a quarterly cash dividend of approximately $0.10 per share, or $0.40 per share annually. We expect to declare this new quarterly cash dividend beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012 following the completion of our current projects under development and the use of excess cash flows to deleverage over the next three quarters. This dividend policy is indicative of our long-term view that we can return value to our shareholders while continuing to naturally deleverage and pursue quality growth,” Mr. Zoley added.

Full-Year 2011 Compared with Full-Year 2010

GEO reported total revenues for the full-year 2011 of $1.6 billion compared to total revenues of $1.3 billion for the full-year 2010. GEO reported net income for the full-year 2011 of $77.5 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, compared to net income of $62.8 million, or $1.12 per diluted share for the full-year 2010. GEO’s full-year 2011 net income includes $15.1 million, after-tax, in start-up/transition expenses; $0.7 million, after-tax, in international bid and proposal expenses, $4.1 million, after-tax, in acquisition related expenses, and a $1.2 million after-tax income effect related to the loss attributable to non-controlling interests.

Excluding these items, GEO reported Pro Forma net income of $98.5 million, or $1.55 per diluted share, for the full-year 2011 compared to Pro Forma net income of $85.3 million, or $1.52 per diluted share for the full-year 2010. Full-year 2011 Adjusted EBITDA increased to $318.5 million from $225.4 million for the full-year 2010. Adjusted Funds from Operations for the full-year 2011 increased to $196.8 million, or $3.09 per diluted share, compared to $136.0 million, or $2.43 per diluted share, for the full-year 2010.

Business Segments Revenue

U.S. Corrections & Detention

For the fourth quarter 2011, U.S. Corrections & Detention revenue increased by approximately $0.4 million year-over-year to $243.3 million. Fourth quarter 2011 revenues for U.S. Corrections & Detention reflect the deactivation of the Regional Correctional Center in New Mexico and the Leo Chesney Community Correctional Facility in California in the second and third quarters of 2011 respectively. These facility deactivations were offset by the activation of a new contract with the Bureau of Prisons at the company-owned D. Ray James Correctional Facility in Georgia and the activation of the managed-only Blackwater River Correctional Facility in Florida, both of which began ramping up in the fourth quarter 2010 as well as the activation of the Adelanto ICE Processing Center East in August 2011.

GEO Care

For the fourth quarter 2011, GEO Care revenue increased by approximately $30.9 million year-over-year to $109.3 million. This revenue increase was driven primarily by GEO’s acquisition of BI Incorporated (“BI”) in February 2011 as well as the activation of the 100-bed Montgomery County Mental Health Treatment Facility in Texas in March 2011 offset by the deactivation of the 177-bed Brooklyn Residential Reentry Center in the third quarter 2011.

International Services

For the fourth quarter of 2011, International Services revenue increased by approximately $1.6 million year-over-year to $53.9 million driven primarily by positive foreign exchange rate fluctuations and the activation of the Dungavel House Immigration Removal Centre in Scotland in the third quarter 2011 offset by the deactivation of the Campsfield House Immigration Removal Centre in England in the second quarter 2011.

Reconciliation Tables and Supplemental Disclosure

GEO has made available a Supplemental Disclosure which contains reconciliation tables of pro forma net income to net income, Adjusted EBITDA to net income, Adjusted Funds from Operations to net income along with supplemental financial and operational information on GEO’s business segments. 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 pro forma net income, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Funds from Operations. GEO’s Reconciliation Tables can be found herein and in GEO’s Supplemental Disclosure which is available on GEO’s Investor Relations webpage at www.geogroup.com.

2012 Financial Guidance

GEO issued its initial financial guidance for 2012. GEO expects its full year 2012 revenues to be in a range of $1.66 billion to $1.68 billion and its 2012 pro forma earnings per share to be in a range of $1.50 to $1.60 per share, excluding $0.07 per share in start-up/transition expenses and international bid and proposal costs.

GEO expects its 2012 Adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of $330.0 million to $340.0 million and its 2012 Adjusted Funds from Operations to be in a range of $195.0 million to $205.0 million, or $3.18 to $3.34 per share.

GEO expects its first quarter 2012 revenues to be in a range of $408.0 million to $413.0 million and its pro forma earnings per share to be in a range of $0.30 to $0.32 per share, excluding $0.04 per share in start-up/transition expenses and international bid and proposal costs.

Compared to fourth quarter 2011 results, GEO’s first quarter 2012 guidance reflects higher payroll taxes, which are frontloaded in the beginning of the year. Given the growth in its workforce as a result of the acquisitions of Cornell Companies (“Cornell”) in August 2010 and BI in February 2011 and significant increases in unemployment tax rates, GEO’s first quarter 2012 payroll tax expense is expected to be approximately $0.05 to $0.06 per share higher than in other quarters. GEO’s first quarter 2012 guidance also reflects the deactivation of two company-owned community correctional facilities in California in late 2011, which represents a quarterly negative earnings impact of $0.01 to $0.02 per share.

GEO’s full year 2012 earnings guidance reflects the impact of the California Offender Realignment Plan, which went into effect on October 1, 2011, and resulted in the cancelation of three of GEO’s community correctional facility contracts in California as well as a contract for the housing of out-of-state California inmates at GEO’s North Lake Correctional Facility in Michigan. GEO’s 2012 financial guidance also reflects the cancellation of its Golden State Community Correctional Facility contract, which will result in the closure of the facility effective July 1, 2012. This contract cancelation is expected to have a year-over-year negative earnings impact of approximately $0.03 to $0.04 per share, which includes the carrying costs associated with keeping the facility idle.

Additionally, GEO’s 2012 financial guidance reflects an extended start-up and additional staffing expenses, representing $0.02 to $0.03 per share, for the GEOAmey transportation project as a result of incumbent employee laws in the United Kingdom and a larger and newly configured geographic area, which will result in a slower phase-down of the employee labor force. GEO expects its GEOAmey transportation project to achieve normalized operations and profitability starting in 2013.

GEO’s 2012 financial guidance also assumes the continued phase-in of the 1,500 Riverbend Correctional Facility in Georgia and the 1,066-bed Plainfield Short Term Offender Program Facility in Indiana as well as the activation of the 600-bed Karnes Civil Detention Center in Texas in the first quarter of 2012, the 512-bed expansion of the New Castle Correctional Facility in Indiana in the second quarter of 2012, and the 650-bed Adelanto ICE Processing Center in California in the third quarter of 2012. GEO expects these project activations to result in start-up and phase-in expenses during 2012 with the full annualized earnings contribution for these projects expected in 2013.

GEO’s 2012 financial guidance does not assume the potential reactivation of approximately 7,700 current and projected idle beds which GEO is actively marketing to local, state, and federal customers. The 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 annual guidance also reflects approximately $0.18 per share in intangibles amortization expense mostly related to the acquisitions of Cornell and BI.

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. Through the end of the fourth quarter 2011, GEO had repurchased approximately 3.9 million shares of its common stock for approximately $75.0 million.

Dividend Policy

GEO announced today that its Board has adopted a dividend policy. GEO expects to declare quarterly cash dividends of approximately $0.10 per share, or $0.40 per share annually, beginning in the fourth quarter 2012. The declaration of each quarterly cash dividend will be subject to approval by GEO’s Board and to meeting the requirements of all applicable laws and regulations. GEO’s Board retains the power to modify, suspend or cancel its dividend policy as it may deem necessary or appropriate in the future.

Non-Recourse Bond Issuance

On December 9, 2011, the Washington Economic Development Finance Authority issued $54.4 million of its Taxable Economic Development Revenue Bonds, series 2011 (“2011 Revenue Bonds”). The 2011 Revenue Bonds were rated AA- by Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, and the scheduled payment of principal and interest is guaranteed by municipal bond insurance issued by Assured Guaranty Municipal Corp. The 2011 Revenue Bonds have an average all-in cost of approximately 6.4%, including debt issuance costs and the bond discount, and maturity dates ranging from October 1, 2014 through October 1, 2021. The 2011 Revenue Bonds were issued to provide funds to make a loan to CSC of Tacoma, LLC, GEO’s wholly-owned subsidiary, for purposes of reimbursing GEO for costs incurred by GEO for the 2009 expansion of the Northwest Detention Center located in Tacoma, Washington and paying the costs of issuing the 2011 Revenue Bonds. The payment of principal and interest on the bonds is non-recourse to GEO. None of the bonds nor CSC’s obligations under the loan are obligations of GEO nor are they guaranteed by GEO.

Note to Reconciliation Tables and Supplemental Disclosure –

Important Information on GEO’s Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Pro Forma Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Funds From Operations are non-GAAP financial measures that are presented as supplemental disclosures.

Pro Forma Net Income is defined as net income adjusted for net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, start-up/transition expenses, net of tax, international bid and proposal expenses, net of tax, M&A-related expenses, net of tax, loss on extinguishment of debt, net of tax, gain on land sale, net of tax, and IRS settlement, net of tax. GEO believes that Pro Forma Net Income is useful to investors as it provides information about the performance of GEO’s overall business because such measure eliminates the effects of certain unusual or non-recurring charges that are not directly attributable to GEO’s underlying operating performance, it provides disclosure on the same basis as that used by GEO’s management and it provides consistency in GEO’s financial reporting and therefore continuity to investors for comparability purposes. GEO’s management uses Pro Forma Net Income to monitor and evaluate its operating performance and to facilitate internal and external comparisons of the historical operating performance of GEO and its business units.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before net interest expense, income tax provision, depreciation and amortization, and tax provision on equity in earnings of affiliate, adjusted for net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, stock-based compensation, pre-tax, start-up/transition expenses, pre-tax, international bid and proposal expenses, pre-tax, M&A-related expenses, pre-tax, loss on extinguishment of debt, pre-tax, gain on land sale, pre-tax, and IRS settlement, pre-tax. GEO believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as it provides information about the performance of GEO’s overall business because such measure eliminates the effects of certain unusual or non-recurring charges that are not directly attributable to GEO’s underlying operating performance, it provides disclosure on the same basis as that used by GEO’s management and it provides consistency in GEO’s financial reporting and therefore continuity to investors for comparability purposes. GEO’s management uses Adjusted EBITDA to monitor and evaluate its operating performance and to facilitate internal and external comparisons of the historical operating performance of GEO and its business units.

Adjusted Funds From Operations is defined as net income excluding depreciation and amortization, income tax provision, income taxes paid, stock-based compensation, maintenance capital expenditures, equity in earnings (loss) of affiliates, net of tax, amortization of debt costs and other non-cash interest, net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, start-up/transition expenses, international bid and proposal expenses, M&A-related expenses, loss on extinguishment of debt, gain on land sale, net of tax, and IRS settlement, net of tax. GEO believes that Adjusted Funds From Operations is useful to investors as it provides information regarding cash that GEO’s operating business generates before taking into account certain cash and non-cash items that are non-operational or infrequent in nature, it provides disclosure on the same basis as that used by GEO’s management and it provides consistency in GEO’s financial reporting and therefore continuity to investors for comparability purposes. GEO’s management uses Adjusted Funds From Operations to monitor and evaluate its operating performance and to facilitate internal and external comparisons of the historical operating performance of GEO and its business units.

GEO has made available a Supplemental Disclosure which contains reconciliation tables of pro forma net income to net income, Adjusted EBITDA to net income, Adjusted Funds from Operations to net income along with supplemental financial and operational information on GEO’s business segments.
