GEO Continuum of Care - 2016 Achievements

To strengthen its commitment to being the world's leading provider of evidence-based rehabilitation and post-release services, GEO announced today that it has doubled its annual expenditure commitment to expand the delivery of its 'GEO Continuum of Care' programs from $5 million to $10 million beginning in 2017. The 'GEO Continuum of Care' integrates enhanced in-prison rehabilitation programs including evidence-based treatment with post-release support services.

During 2016, the 'GEO Continuum of Care' division achieved several important milestones:
  • Completed approximately 5.9 million hours of rehabilitation programming through a diverse number of programs
  • Averaged close to 12,000 daily participants in academic programs
  • Awarded 1,849 high school equivalency degrees
  • Averaged more than 24,000 daily participants in vocational training programs;
  • Awarded 7,674 vocational training completions
  • Averaged close to 4,000 daily participants in substance abuse treatment programs
  • Awarded 8,220 substance abuse program completions.

Community Education Centers Acquisition

GEO announced today the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire Community Education Centers ("CEC") for $360 million in an all cash transaction, excluding transaction related expenses. GEO will not assume any debt as a result of the transaction. CEC's operations encompass 12,000 beds nationwide.

GEO plans to integrate CEC into GEO's existing business units of GEO Corrections & Detention and GEO Care. Following the acquisition, GEO will own and/or manage approximately 98,000 beds worldwide including approximately 7,000 community reentry beds. The transaction is expected to close the second quarter of 2017 subject to the fulfillment of customary conditions. The transaction will be supported by a term loan financing commitment from BNP Paribas and borrowings under GEO's existing Revolving Credit Facility.

The acquisition is expected to increase GEO's total annualized revenues by approximately $250 million. In addition, GEO anticipates annual net synergies of approximately $5 million to be realized over 9 to 12 months. Excluding one-time transaction-related expenses and transitional costs, GEO expects the acquisition to be modestly accretive in 2017 and to be 9-11% accretive to Adjusted EBITDA post-synergies on a fully annualized basis beginning in 2018.

2017 Financial Guidance

GEO issued its initial financial guidance for the full-year and first quarter of 2017. GEO expects full-year 2017 total revenue to be approximately $2.1 billion, including approximately $103 million in construction revenue associated with GEO's contract for the development and operation of the Ravenhall, Australia project. GEO expects full-year 2017 Net Income Attributable to GEO to be in a range of $2.05 to $2.15 per diluted share. GEO expects full-year 2017 Normalized FFO in a range of $2.90 to $3.00 per diluted share and AFFO in a range of $3.70 to $3.80 per diluted share. GEO's initial financial guidance for 2017 does not yet reflect the announced acquisition of CEC, which is expected to close the second quarter of 2017.

For the first quarter 2017, GEO expects total revenues to be in a range of $549 million to $554 million, including approximately $57 million in construction revenue associated with GEO's contract for the development and operation of the Ravenhall, Australia project. For the first quarter 2017, GEO expects Net Income Attributable to GEO to be in a range of $0.48 to $0.50 per diluted share, Normalized FFO in a range of $0.70 to $0.72 per diluted share, and AFFO in a range of $0.90 to $0.92 per diluted share.

Compared to fourth quarter 2016 results, first quarter 2017 guidance reflects approximately $0.05 to $0.06 per diluted 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, as well as other normal fluctuations in federal populations which impact first quarter earnings by $0.02 to $0.03 per share.

Quarterly Dividend

On February 6, 2017, GEO's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.70 per share. The quarterly cash dividend will be paid on February 27, 2017 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 17, 2017. The declaration of future quarterly cash dividends is subject to approval by GEO's Board of Directors and to meeting the requirements of all applicable laws and regulations. GEO's Board of Directors retains the power to modify its dividend policy as it may deem necessary or appropriate in the future.

Note to Reconciliation Tables and Supplemental Disclosure -

Important Information on GEO's Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Net Operating Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Funds from Operations, Normalized Funds from Operations, Adjusted Funds from Operations, and Adjusted Net Income are non-GAAP financial measures that are presented as supplemental disclosures. GEO has presented herein certain forward-looking statements about GEO's future financial performance that include non-GAAP financial measures, including, Net Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO. The determination of the amounts that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures is a matter of management judgment and depends upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts recognized in a given period. While we have provided a high level reconciliation for the guidance ranges for full year 2017, we are unable to present a more detailed quantitative reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures because management cannot reliably predict all of the necessary components of such GAAP measures. The quantitative reconciliation of the forward-looking GAAP financial measures will be provided for completed annual and quarterly periods, as applicable, calculated in a consistent manner with the quantitative reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures previously reported for completed annual and quarterly periods.

Net Operating Income is defined as revenues less operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization expense, general and administrative expenses, real estate related operating lease expense, and start-up expenses, pre-tax. Net Operating Income is calculated as net income attributable to GEO adjusted by subtracting net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, equity in earnings of affiliates, net of income tax provision, and by adding income tax (benefit) provision, interest expense, net of interest income, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization expense, general and administrative expenses, real estate related operating lease expense, and start-up expenses, pre-tax.

EBITDA is defined as Net Operating Income adjusted by subtracting general and administrative expenses, real estate related operating lease expense, and start-up expenses, pre-tax, and by adding equity in earnings of affiliates, pre-tax. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for net loss/income attributable to non-controlling interests, stock-based compensation expenses, pre-tax, and certain other adjustments as defined from time to time, including for the periods presented M&A related expenses, pre-tax, start-up expenses, pre-tax, and gain on sale of real estate assets, pre-tax. Given the nature of our business as a real estate owner and operator, we believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are helpful to investors as measures of our operational performance because they provide an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, to satisfy general operating expenses, to make capital expenditures and to fund other cash needs or reinvest cash into our business.

We believe that by removing the impact of our asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) and excluding certain non-cash charges, amounts spent on interest and taxes, and certain other charges that are highly variable from year to year, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide our investors with performance measures that reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, per diem rates and operating costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations.

The adjustments we make to derive the non-GAAP measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA exclude items which may cause short-term fluctuations in income from continuing operations and which we do not consider to be the fundamental attributes or primary drivers of our business plan and they do not affect our overall long-term operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide disclosure on the same basis as that used by our management and provide consistency in our financial reporting, facilitate internal and external comparisons of our historical operating performance and our business units and provide continuity to investors for comparability purposes.

Funds From Operations, or FFO, is defined in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which defines FFO as net income/loss attributable to common shareholders (computed in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization, excluding gains and losses from the cumulative effects of accounting changes, extraordinary items and sales of properties, and including adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Normalized Funds from Operations, or Normalized FFO, is defined as FFO adjusted for certain items which by their nature are not comparable from period to period or that tend to obscure GEO's actual operating performance, including for the periods presented M&A related expenses, net of tax, start-up expenses, net of tax, loss on extinguishment of debt, net of tax, and non-recurring tax benefits.

Adjusted Funds From Operations, or AFFO, is defined as Normalized FFO adjusted by adding non-cash expenses such as non-real estate related depreciation and amortization, stock based compensation expense, the amortization of debt issuance costs, discount and/or premium and other non-cash interest, and by subtracting recurring consolidated maintenance capital expenditures.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as Net Income Attributable to GEO adjusted for certain items which by their nature are not comparable from period to period or that tend to obscure GEO's actual operating performance, including for the periods presented M&A related expenses, net of tax, start-up expenses, net of tax, loss on extinguishment of debt, net of tax, gain on sale of real estate assets, net of tax, and non-recurring tax benefits.

Because of the unique design, structure and use of our correctional facilities, we believe that assessing the performance of our correctional facilities without the impact of depreciation or amortization is useful and meaningful to investors. Although NAREIT has published its definition of FFO, companies often modify this definition as they seek to provide financial measures that meaningfully reflect their distinctive operations. We have modified FFO to derive Normalized FFO and AFFO that meaningfully reflect our operations.

Our assessment of our operations is focused on long-term sustainability. The adjustments we make to derive the non-GAAP measures of Normalized FFO and AFFO exclude items which may cause short-term fluctuations in income from continuing operations but have no impact on our cash flows, or we do not consider them to be fundamental attributes or the primary drivers of our business plan and they do not affect our overall long-term operating performance. We may make adjustments to FFO from time to time for certain other income and expenses that do not reflect a necessary component of our operational performance on the basis discussed above, even though such items may require cash settlement. Because FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO exclude depreciation and amortization unique to real estate as well as non-operational items and certain other charges that are highly variable from year to year, they provide our investors with performance measures that reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, per diem rates, operating costs and interest costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from income from continuing operations. We believe the presentation of FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO provide useful information to investors as they provide an indication of our ability to fund capital expenditures and expand our business. FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO provide disclosure on the same basis as that used by our management and provide consistency in our financial reporting, facilitate internal and external comparisons of our historical operating performance and our business units and provide continuity to investors for comparability purposes. Additionally, FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO are widely recognized measures in our industry as a real estate investment trust.
