CCA Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend 
Dividend Reflects Adjustment for New Share Issuance 
NASHVILLE, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/13 --  CCA (NYSE: CXW)
(Corrections Corporation of America) announced today that its Board
of Directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.48 per share
($1.92 annually) to be paid on July 15, 2013 to shareholders of
record as of the close of business on July 3, 2013.  
CCA announced earlier today that it will be issuing approximately
13.88 million shares on May 20, 2013, in connection with the payment
of the Company's previously announced special dividend. On April 15,
2013, the Company paid a $0.53 per share regular quarterly dividend.
The aggregate dollars that will be distributed with the July 15, 2013
dividend are consistent with the April 15 dividend payment. However,
the July 15, 2013 per share amount is lower due to the increase in
shares outstanding resulting from the special dividend.
