Our strong quarterly results have been driven by improved occupancy across our diversified real estate assets. Since the beginning of the year, our GEO Corrections & Detention division has activated new contracts or has announced contract awards totaling more than 6,000 correctional and detention beds in the U.S. and internationally. Additionally, our GEO Community Services division has continued to expand with the opening of approximately a dozen new day reporting centers and the provision of electronic monitoring services in several new markets. We continue to be optimistic regarding the growth opportunities in our industry which we expect will continue to create value for our shareholders.”  GEO reported total revenues for the second quarter 2014 of $412.8 million up from total revenues of $381.7 million for the second quarter 2013.

Compared to the first six months of 2013, GEO’s results for the first six months of 2014 reflect the activation of 1,500 company-owned beds at three facilities in California in November 2013; the assumption of management at three managed-only facilities totaling 3,854 beds in the State of Florida in February 2014; a 400-bed contract capacity expansion at the company-owned Rio Grande Detention Center in Texas during the first quarter 2014; the opening of new day reporting centers in Pennsylvania and California during the fourth quarter 2013 and first quarter 2014; and improved occupancy rates across GEO’s diversified real estate portfolio.  Net Operating Income, Funds From Operations (“FFO”), Normalized FFO, and AFFO are widely used non-GAAP supplemental financial measures of REIT performance. 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 Non-GAAP financial measures.  2014 Financial Guidance  GEO increased its financial guidance for the full-year 2014 and issued guidance for the third and fourth quarters 2014. GEO increased its full-year 2014 AFFO guidance to a range of $3.18 to $3.24 per diluted share, or $229 million to $234 million. On a GAAP basis, GEO increased its net income guidance for the full year 2014 to a range of $1.93 to $1.99 per diluted share.  GEO increased full-year 2014 revenue guidance to a range of $1.626 billion to $1.636 billion. GEO increased its full-year 2014 Net Operating Income guidance to a range of $465 million to $470 million. GEO increased its full-year 2014 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to a range of $338 million to $343 million.  For the third quarter 2014, GEO expects AFFO to be in a range of $0.81 to $0.84 per diluted share. On a GAAP basis, GEO expects third quarter 2014 net income per diluted share to be in a range of $0.50 to $0.53 and third quarter 2014 revenues to be in a range of $410 million to $415 million.

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 and Adjusted Funds from Operations 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, EBITDA, 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 2014, 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, and real estate related operating lease expense. Net Operating Income is calculated as net income adjusted by subtracting equity in earnings of affiliates, net of tax, and by adding income tax provision, interest expense, net of interest income, depreciation and amortization expense, general and administrative expenses, and real estate related operating lease expense.  EBITDA is defined as Net Operating Income adjusted by subtracting general and administrative expenses, real estate related operating lease expense, and loss on extinguishment of debt, pre-tax, and by adding equity in earnings of affiliates, pre-tax. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for net income/loss attributable to non-controlling interests, non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, pre-tax, and certain other adjustments as defined from time to time, including for the periods presented REIT conversion related expenses, pre-tax, and loss on extinguishment of debt, 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 REIT conversion related expenses, net of tax, tax benefit related to IRS settlement and REIT conversion, and loss on extinguishment of debt, net of tax.  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 and the amortization of debt costs and other non-cash interest and by subtracting recurring consolidated maintenance capital expenditures.  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.
