As previously reported, on February 13, 2020, GEO received formal notice from J.

As previously disclosed, Blake Davis was scheduled to succeed Mr. Donahue as Senior Vice President, President, GEO Secure Services effective April 10, 2020.  Based upon Mr. Donahue's delayed retirement, Mr. Davis will begin working in the position of President of GEO Secure Services effective April 10, 2020.  Upon Mr. Donahue's retirement on July 11, 2020, Mr. Davis will become Senior Vice President, President of GEO Secure Services.

Mr. Donahue's current compensation arrangements will continue until his new retirement date. GEO and Mr. Donahue intend to enter into a consulting agreement pursuant to which Mr. Donahue will serve as a consultant to GEO for a three year period effective July 12, 2020.
