forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties
that could cause actual results to differ materially from the

facility management contracts, including as a result of sufficient
governmental appropriations and as a result of inmate disturbances;

correctional capacity; and (viii) increases in costs to construct or

inability to complete such projects on schedule as a result of
various factors, many of which are beyond our control, such as
weather, labor conditions and material shortages, resulting in
increased construction costs.
