The GEO Group announced that on December 31, it completed all the necessary restructuring steps, including the previously announced divestiture of its health care assets, enabling GEO to operate in compliance with the REIT rules of the Internal Revenue Code beginning January 1, 2013. As previously announced by GEO, a special committee of the Board was formed consisting of all the independent directors, and the Independent Committee approved the sale of the GEO Care Business to members of GEO and GEO Care’s management teams for a purchase price of $36M, inclusive of normalized working capital in the GEO Care Business. In connection with the GEO Care Divestiture, the MBO Group also entered into various arrangements with GEO which will result in approximately $2.6M in annual payments and cost savings for GEO through a five-year support services agreement, a five-year licensing agreement, and annual general and administrative cost savings. Additionally, GEO expects to incur a non-cash charge of approximately $13M-$17M, net of tax, related to the write-off of goodwill, other intangible assets and intercompany debt during the fourth quarter of 2012 in connection with the GEO Care Divestiture.

07:57 EDTGEOGeo Group announces acquisition of eight facilities totaling over 6,500 beds
The GEO Group announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire eight correctional and detention facilities totaling more than 6,500 beds from LCS Corrections Services, a privately-held owner and operator of correctional and detention facilities in the United States, and its affiliates. The LCS transaction will be an asset purchase. Pursuant to the terms of the definitive agreement, GEO will acquire the LCS Facilities for approximately $312M, or approximately $48,000 per bed, in an all cash transaction, excluding transaction related expenses. Additionally, LCS has the opportunity to receive an additional payment if the Facilities exceed certain performance targets after the closing over a period of approximately 18 months. The aggregate amount of the purchase price to be paid at closing and the Earnout Payment, if achieved, will not exceed $350M. LCS will use the proceeds to repay approximately $302M in outstanding net debt. GEO will not assume any debt as a result of the transaction. GEO will finance the acquisition of the LCS Facilities with borrowings under its $700M Revolving Credit Facility. Following the LCS transaction, GEO will have approximately $260M in available borrowing capacity under its Revolving Credit Facility. The transaction is expected to close by the end of February 2015, subject to the fulfillment of customary closing conditions. On an annualized basis, the acquisition is expected to immediately increase GEO’s revenues by approximately $75M-$80M and be initially 10c-12c accretive to AFFO per share, excluding one-time transaction-related expenses. Additionally, GEO expects to achieve substantial improvements in the utilization of the LCS Facilities which is expected to create additional accretion to AFFO per share over the next 12-24 months.
