The GEO Group Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Results07:30 EST Thursday, February 21, 2013 BOCA RATON, Fla. (Business Wire) -- The GEO Group (NYSE: GEO) (“GEO”), the world's leading provider of diversified correctional, detention, and community reentry services, reported today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012. GEO's financial results are presented throughout as retrospectively revised for discontinued operations resulting from GEO's previously announced discontinuation of three managed-only contracts with the State of Mississippi during the third quarter of 2012 and the divestiture of the healthcare facility contracts previously held by its former wholly-owned subsidiary, GEO Care, Inc., which was completed on December 31, 2012 (the “GEO Care Divestiture”) in connection with GEO's conversion to a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) as of January 1, 2013. Please see the section of this press release below entitled “Note on GEO Care Divestiture.” Fourth Quarter 2012 HighlightsIncome from Continuing Operations of $1.55 Per Diluted SharePro Forma Income from Continuing Operations of $0.44 Per Diluted ShareNet Operating Income of $97.5 millionNormalized FFO of $0.79 Per Diluted ShareAFFO of $0.84 Per Diluted Share For the fourth quarter 2012, GEO reported Normalized FFO of $49.0 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, an increase of 18.0% from $41.5 million, or $0.67 per Diluted Share, for the fourth quarter 2011. GEO reported fourth quarter 2012 AFFO of $51.8 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, an increase of 19.7% from $43.3 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2011. Net operating income for the fourth quarter 2012 increased to $97.5 million from $96.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net operating income, or gross profit, is defined as revenues less operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization expense and general and administrative expenses. George C. Zoley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GEO, said: “We are pleased with our fourth quarter results and confirmed outlook for 2013, which continue to reflect strong operational and financial performance from our diversified business units. During 2012, we achieved a historic milestone by completing the steps required for our conversion to a real estate investment trust on January 1, 2013, which has allowed us to increase our annual dividends from $0.80 to $2.00 per share. The decisive actions taken by our Board and our management team positioned GEO to become the first fully integrated equity REIT in our industry, and we remain committed to maximizing value for our shareholders.” GEO reported total revenues for the fourth quarter 2012 of $378.7 million compared to total revenues of $354.5 million for the fourth quarter 2011. GEO reported fourth quarter 2012 income from continuing operations of $1.55 per diluted share, compared to $0.28 per diluted share for the fourth quarter 2011. GEO's fourth quarter 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; $0.8 million, after-tax, in start-up/transition expenses; $0.9 million, after-tax, in international bid related costs; and $9.0 million, after-tax, in REIT conversion related expenses. Excluding these items, GEO reported Pro Forma income from continuing operations of $0.44 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2012 compared to $0.36 per diluted share for the fourth quarter 2011. Full Year 2012 HighlightsIncome from Continuing Operations of $2.36 Per Diluted SharePro Forma Income from Continuing Operations of $1.49 Per Diluted ShareNet Operating Income of $389.8 millionNormalized FFO of $3.19 Per Diluted ShareAFFO of $3.52 Per Diluted Share For the full year 2012, GEO reported Normalized FFO of $195.6 million, or $3.19 per diluted share, an increase of 13.4% from $172.5 million, or $2.71 per Diluted Share, for the full year 2011. GEO reported full year 2012 AFFO of $215.7 million, or $3.52 per diluted share, an increase of 16.9% from $184.6 million, or $2.90 per diluted share, for the full year 2011. Net operating income for the full year 2012 increased to $389.8 million from $371.2 million for the full year 2011. GEO reported total revenues for the full year 2012 of $1.48 billion compared to total revenues of $1.41 billion for the full year 2011. GEO reported full year 2012 income from continuing operations of $2.36 per diluted share, compared to $1.09 per diluted share for the full year 2011. 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. 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. Reconciliation Tables and Supplemental Disclosure GEO has made available a Supplemental Disclosure which contains reconciliation tables of operating income to net operating income, income from continuing operations to pro forma income from continuing operations, income from continuing operations to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, and income from continuing operations to Funds From Operations, Normalized Funds From Operations and Adjusted Funds from Operations along with supplemental financial and operational information on GEO's business segments and other important operating metrics. 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 and reconciles them to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. 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.

About The GEO Group The GEO Group (NYSE:GEO) is the first fully integrated equity real estate investment trust specializing in the design, financing, development, and operation of correctional, detention, and community reentry facilities around the globe. GEO is the world's leading provider of diversified correctional, detention, and community reentry services to government agencies worldwide with operations in the United States, Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.

Note to Reconciliation Tables and Supplemental Disclosure –Important Information on GEO's Non-GAAP Financial Measures Net Operating Income, Pro Forma Income from Continuing Operations, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Funds from Operations, Normalized Funds from Operations and Adjusted Funds From Operations are non-GAAP financial measures that are presented as supplemental disclosures. Net operating income, or gross profit, is defined as revenues less operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization expense and general and administrative expenses. 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 and Adjusted Funds From Operations. 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 2013, 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. Pro Forma Income from Continuing Operations is defined as income from continuing operations adjusted for net income/loss attributable to non-controlling interests, start-up/transition expenses, net of tax, international bid related costs, net of tax, and certain other adjustments as defined from time to time. GEO believes that Pro Forma Income from Continuing Operations is useful to investors as it provides information about the performance of GEO's overall business because such measure eliminates the effects of certain 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 Income from Continuing 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. EBITDA is defined as income from continuing operations before net interest expense, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, and tax provision on equity in earnings of affiliates. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for net income/loss attributable to non-controlling interests, non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, non-cash interest expense, and certain other adjustments as defined from time to time. 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 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 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. 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 the Company's actual operating performance. Adjusted Funds From Operations, or AFFO, is defined as Normalized Funds From Operations adjusted for maintenance capital expenditures, non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, non-cash interest expense, and certain other adjustments as defined from time to time. GEO believes that Funds From Operations, Normalized Funds From Operations, and Adjusted Funds From Operations are useful measures to investors as they provide information regarding cash that GEO's operating business generates before taking into account certain cash and non-cash items that are non-operational in nature, provide disclosure on the same basis as that used by GEO's management and provide consistency in GEO's financial reporting and therefore continuity to investors for comparability purposes. GEO's management uses these measures 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.
