PART I
 
Item 1.
Business
As used in this report, the terms “we,” “us,” “our,” “GEO” and the “Company” refer to The GEO Group, Inc., its consolidated subsidiaries and its unconsolidated affiliates, unless otherwise expressly stated or the context otherwise requires.
General
    
We are a fully-integrated real estate investment trust (“REIT”) specializing in the ownership, leasing and management of secure facilities, processing centers and reentry facilities and the provision of community-based services and youth services in the United States, Australia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. We own, lease and operate a broad range of secure facilities including maximum, medium and minimum security facilities, processing centers, as well as community-based reentry facilities. We develop new facilities based on contract awards, using our project development expertise and experience to design, construct and finance what we believe are state-of-the-art facilities that maximize security and efficiency. We provide innovative compliance technologies, industry-leading monitoring services, and evidence-based supervision and treatment programs for community-based parolees, probationers and pretrial defendants. We also provide secure transportation services for offender and detainee populations as contracted domestically and in the United Kingdom through our joint venture GEO Amey PECS Ltd. (“GEOAmey”). As of December 31, 2019, our worldwide operations included the management and/or ownership of approximately 95,000 beds at 129 secure and community-based facilities, including idle facilities and projects under development, and also include the provision of community supervision services for more than 210,000 offenders and pretrial defendants, including approximately 100,000 individuals through an array of technology products including radio frequency, GPS, and alcohol monitoring devices.

We provide a diversified scope of services on behalf of our government clients:

our secure facility management services involve the provision of security, administrative, rehabilitation,
education, and food services, primarily at adult male secure services facilities;

our community-based services involve supervision of adult parolees and probationers and the provision of temporary
housing, programming, employment assistance and other services with the intention of the successful reintegration of
residents into the community;

our youth services include residential, shelter care and community-based services along with rehabilitative
and educational programs;

we provide comprehensive electronic monitoring and supervision services;

we develop new facilities, using our project development experience to design, construct and finance what we believe
are state-of-the-art facilities that maximize security and efficiency;

we provide secure transportation services for offender and detainee populations as contracted; and

our services are provided at facilities which we either own, lease or are owned by our customers.

We began operating as a REIT for federal income tax purposes effective January 1, 2013. As a result of the REIT conversion, we reorganized our operations and moved non-real estate components into taxable REIT subsidiaries (“TRSs"). We are a Florida corporation and our predecessor corporation prior to the REIT conversion was originally organized in 1984.
Business Segments
We conduct our business through four reportable business segments: our U.S. Secure Services segment; our GEO Care segment; our International Services segment and our Facility Construction & Design segment. We have identified these four reportable segments to reflect our current view that we operate four distinct business lines, each of which constitutes a material part of our overall business. Our U.S. Secure Services segment primarily encompasses our U.S.-based public-private partnership secure services business. Our GEO Care segment, which conducts its services in the U.S., consists of our community-based services business, our youth services business and our electronic monitoring and supervision service. Our International Services segment primarily consists of our public-private partnership secure services operations in Australia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Our Facility Construction & Design segment primarily contracts with various states, local and federal agencies, as well as international agencies, for the design and construction of facilities for which we generally

have been, or expect to be, awarded management contracts. Financial information about these segments for years 2019, 2018 and 2017 is contained in Note 16 — Business Segments and Geographic Information included in the notes to our audited consolidated financial statements included in Part II, Item 8 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Recent Developments
 
Contract Awards/Modifications

On December 30, 2019, the Company announced that GEO Secure Services signed a new managed-only contract with the U.S. Marshals Service for the government-owned, 512-bed El Centro Detention Facility in California. The contract will have a term of eight years and nine months, inclusive of option periods, effective December 23, 2019. The contract is expected to generate approximately $29 million in annualized revenues for GEO and create more than 240 full-time jobs.    

On December 23, 2019, we announced that we entered into two new contracts with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) for five company-owned facilities in California totaling 4,490 beds. The contracts will have terms of fifteen years, inclusive of two five year options, effective December 20, 2019. The contracts cover two existing, company-owned facilities currently operated by GEO on behalf of ICE: the 1,940-bed Adelanto ICE Processing Center and the 400-bed Mesa Verde ICE Processing Center. The contracts also incorporate three other company-owned facilities: the 700-bed Central Valley facility, the 750-bed Desert View facility, and the 700-bed Golden State facility, as facility annexes. On a combined basis, the contracts are expected to generate over $200 million in annualized revenue for GEO and will support more than 1,200 full-time jobs.
    
In the third quarter of 2019, we were awarded a ten-year contract renewal for the continued delivery of secure transportation under our GEO Amey joint venture in the United Kingdom. Total revenue over the ten-year period is expected to be approximately $760 million.
On June 5, 2019, we also announced that we entered into a contract modification to increase the contract capacity at our company-owned Montgomery Processing Center in Conroe, Texas by 314 beds increasing the center's capacity to 1,314 beds. The 314-bed contract capacity increase became fully operational in the third quarter of 2019 and is expected to generate incremental annualized revenues of approximately $10 million.
On May 2, 2019, we announced that we entered into a new ten-year contract, inclusive of renewal option periods, with the Federal Bureau of Prisons (“BOP”) for the reactivation of our existing company-owned, 1,800-bed North Lake Correctional Facility located in Baldwin, Michigan. The contract became operational on October 1, 2019 and is expected to generate approximately $37 million in incremental annualized revenues. We also announced on May 2, 2019 that Reeves County, Texas entered into two new ten-year contracts, inclusive of renewal periods, with the BOP for the county-owned, 1,800-bed Reeves County Detention Center I & II and the county-owned, 1,376-bed Reeves County Detention Center III. We provide management consulting and support services to Reeves County. The new ten-year contracts were awarded to GEO and Reeves County under a long-standing procurement, for the housing of non-U.S. citizen criminal aliens, commonly referred to as Criminal Alien Requirement (CAR) 19, which was issued by the BOP in 2017.
On April 25, 2019, we announced that we signed a contract modification for the reactivation of our existing company-owned 1,000-bed South Louisiana ICE Processing Center (the "Center") located in Basile, Louisiana. The previously idled Center will house federal immigration detainees under an existing intergovernmental service agreement. The Center began the intake process during the third quarter of 2019 and is expected to generate approximately $25 million in incremental annualized revenues.

Contract Terminations

    Recently California enacted legislation aimed at phasing out public-private partnership contracts for the operation of secure facilities within California and facilities outside of the state of California housing state of California inmates. As previously announced, our contract for our Central Valley facility was already discontinued by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation at the end of September 2019. We expect that our contracts with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for our Desert View facility and Golden State facility will be discontinued by March 1, 2020 and May 1, 2020, respectively. As discussed above, we subsequently entered into new contracts with ICE for our Central Valley, Desert View and Golden State facilities effective December 20, 2019.

Idle Facilities
      
In our Secure Services segment, we are currently marketing approximately 700 vacant beds with a net book value of approximately $12 million at one of our idle facilities to potential customers. In our GEO Care segment, we are currently marketing approximately 400 vacant beds with a net book value of approximately $9 million at one of our idle facilities to potential customers. The combined annual carrying cost of these idle facilities in 2020 is estimated to be $3.0 million, including depreciation expense of $1.0 million. We currently do not have any firm commitments or agreements in place to activate these facilities but have ongoing contact with several potential customers. Historically, some facilities have been idle for multiple years before they received a new contract award. The per diem rates that we charge our clients often vary by contract across our portfolio. However, if the two idle facilities in our Secure Services and GEO Care segments were to be activated using our Secure Services average per diem rate in 2019, (calculated as the Secure Services revenue divided by the number of Secure Services mandays) and based on the average occupancy rate in our facilities for 2019, we would expect to receive annual incremental revenue of approximately $25 million and an increase in annual earnings per share of approximately $.03 to $.06 per share based on our average operating margin.

Quality of Operations
We operate each facility in accordance with our company-wide policies and procedures and with the standards and guidelines required under the relevant management contract. For many facilities, the standards and guidelines include those established by the American Correctional Association, or ("ACA"). The ACA is an independent organization of corrections professionals, which establishes correctional facility standards and guidelines that are generally acknowledged as a benchmark by governmental agencies responsible for correctional facilities. Many of our contracts in the United States require us to seek and maintain ACA accreditation for our facilities. We have sought and received ACA accreditation and re-accreditation for all such facilities. We achieved a median re-accreditation score of 100% as of December 31, 2019. Approximately 90% of our 2019 U.S. Secure Services revenue was derived from ACA accredited facilities for the year ended December 31, 2019. We have also achieved and maintained accreditation by The Joint Commission at five of our secure service facilities and at nine of our youth services locations. We have been successful in achieving and maintaining accreditation under the National Commission on Correctional Health Care ("NCCHC") in a majority of the facilities that we currently operate. The NCCHC accreditation is a voluntary process which we have used to establish comprehensive health care policies and procedures to meet and adhere to the ACA standards. The NCCHC standards, in most cases, exceed ACA Health Care Standards and we have achieved this accreditation at 14 of our U.S. Secure Services facilities and at one youth services location. Additionally, B.I. Incorporated ("BI") has achieved a certification for ISO 9001:2008 for the design, production, installation and servicing of products and services produced by the electronic monitoring business units, including electronic home arrest and electronic monitoring technology products and monitoring services, installation services, and automated caseload management services.
Corporate Social Responsibility

  In September 2019, we issued our first Human Rights and ESG report. The Human Rights and ESG report builds on the important milestone we achieved in 2013 when our Board adopted a Global Human Rights Policy by providing disclosures related to how we inform our employees of our commitment to respecting human rights; the criteria we use to assess human rights performance; and our contract compliance program, remedies to shortcomings in human rights performance, and independent verification of our performance by third party organizations. The Human Rights and ESG report also addresses criteria, based on recognized ESG reporting standards, related to the development of our employees; our efforts to advance environmental sustainability in the construction and operation of our facilities; and our adherence to ethical governance practices throughout our company. The report covers the year ended December 31, 2018 with supporting data from 2016-2018 where possible. The report showcases, among other items, our company wide awareness and training programs, our commitment to a safe and humane environment for everyone in our care, employee diversity, addressing recidivism through our GEO Continuum of Care, our engagement efforts with our stakeholders, oversight and contract compliance, conservation measures and enhanced environmental sustainability efforts.

The Human Rights and ESG report was prepared with reference to the GRI Standards related to General Disclosures, Economic Topics, Environmental Topics and Social Topics based on the Global Reporting Initiative, or GRI, issued by the Global Sustainability Standards Board and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. GRI is an international independent standards organization created to help business, government and other organizations understand and communicate how their operations affect issues of global importance, such as human rights, corruption and climate change. We have referenced the GRI Standards and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights as we have recognized the need for a transparent and disciplined enterprise-wide approach. In our pursuit of this approach, we have begun with the following set of ongoing objectives:

Provide greater transparency for our stakeholders and the general public with respect to our various efforts in all our facilities aimed at respecting human rights.

Enhance our ability to flag potential issues in all areas of our operations and compress the time it takes to respond with corrective measures.

Use widely accepted methodologies for evaluating performance and setting objectives for improvements in corporate governance, corporate social policy, environmental impact and energy conservation.

Business Development Overview
We intend to pursue a diversified growth strategy by winning new clients and contracts, expanding our government services portfolio and pursuing selective acquisition opportunities. Our primary potential customers include: governmental agencies responsible for local, state and federal secure facilities in the United States; governmental agencies responsible for secure facilities in Australia, South Africa and the United Kingdom; federal, state and local government agencies in the United States responsible for community-based services for adult and juvenile offenders; federal, state and local government agencies responsible for monitoring community-based parolees, probationers and pretrial defendants; and other foreign governmental agencies. We achieve organic growth through competitive bidding that begins with the issuance by a government agency of a request for proposal, or RFP. We primarily rely on the RFP process for organic growth in our U.S. and international secure services operations as well as in our community based reentry services and electronic monitoring services business.
For our facility management contracts, our state and local experience has been that a period of approximately 60 to 90 days is generally required from the issuance of a request for proposal to the submission of our response to the request for proposal; that between one and four months elapse between the submission of our response and the agency’s award of a contract; and that between one and four months elapse between the award of a contract and the commencement of facility construction or management of the facility, as applicable.
For our facility management contracts, our federal experience has been that a period of approximately 60 to 90 days is generally required from the issuance of a request for proposal to the submission of our response to the request for proposal; that between 12 and 18 months elapse between the submission of our response and the agency’s award of a contract; and that between four and 18 weeks elapse between the award of a contract and the commencement of facility construction or management of the facility, as applicable.
If the local, state or federal facility for which an award has been made must be constructed, our experience is that construction usually takes between nine and 24 months to complete, depending on the size and complexity of the project. Therefore, management of a newly constructed facility typically commences between 10 and 28 months after the governmental agency’s award.
For the services provided by BI, local, state and federal experience has been that a period of approximately 30 to 90 days is generally required from the issuance of an RFP or Invitation to Bid, or ITB, to the submission of our response; that between one and three months elapse between the submission of our response and the agency’s award of a contract; and that between one and three months elapse between the award of a contract and the commencement of a program or the implementation of program operations, as applicable.
The term of our local, state and federal contracts range from one to five years and some contracts include provisions for optional renewal terms beyond the initial contract term. Contracts can, and are periodically, extended beyond the initial contract term and optional renewal terms through alternative procurement processes including sole source justification processes, cooperative procurement vehicles and agency decisions to add extension time periods.
We believe that our long operating history and reputation have earned us credibility with both existing and prospective customers when bidding on new facility management contracts or when renewing existing contracts. We believe our success in the RFP process has resulted in a pipeline of new projects with significant revenue potential.
In addition to pursuing organic growth through the RFP process, we will, from time to time selectively consider the financing and construction of new facilities or expansions to existing facilities on a speculative basis without having a signed contract with a known customer. We also plan to leverage our experience and scale of service offerings to expand the range of public-private partnership services that we provide. We will continue to pursue selected acquisition opportunities in our core services and other government services areas that meet our criteria for growth and profitability. We have engaged and intend in the future to engage

independent consultants to assist us in developing public-private partnership opportunities and in responding to requests for proposals, monitoring the legislative and business climate, and maintaining relationships with existing customers.
Facility Design, Construction and Finance
We offer governmental agencies consultation and management services relating to the design and construction of new secure facilities and the redesign and renovation of older facilities including facilities we own, lease or manage as well as facilities we do not own, lease or manage. Domestically, as of December 31, 2019, we have provided services for the design and construction of approximately 55 facilities and for the redesign, renovation and expansion of approximately 70 facilities. Internationally, as of December 31, 2019, we have provided services for the design and construction of 11 facilities and for the redesign, renovation and expansion of two facilities.
Contracts to design and construct or to redesign and renovate facilities may be financed in a variety of ways. Governmental agencies may finance the construction of such facilities through any of the following methods:
a one time general revenue appropriation by the governmental agency for the cost of the new facility;
general obligation bonds that are secured by either a limited or unlimited tax levy by the issuing governmental entity; or
revenue bonds or certificates of participation secured by an annual lease payment that is subject to annual or bi-annual legislative appropriations.
We may also act as a source of financing or as a facilitator with respect to the financing of the construction of a facility. In these cases, the construction of such facilities may be financed through various methods including the following:
funds from equity offerings of our stock;
cash on hand and/or cash flows from our operations;
borrowings by us from banks or other institutions (which may or may not be subject to government guarantees in the event of contract termination); 
funds from debt offerings of our notes; or
lease arrangements with third parties.
If the project is financed using direct governmental appropriations, with proceeds of the sale of bonds or other obligations issued prior to the award of the project, then financing is in place when the contract relating to the construction or renovation project is executed. If the project is financed using project-specific tax-exempt bonds or other obligations, the construction contract is generally subject to the sale of such bonds or obligations. Generally, substantial expenditures for construction will not be made on such a project until the tax-exempt bonds or other obligations are sold; and, if such bonds or obligations are not sold, construction and therefore, management of the facility, may either be delayed until alternative financing is procured or the development of the project will be suspended or entirely canceled. If the project is self-financed by us, then financing is generally in place prior to the commencement of construction.

Under our construction and design management contracts, we generally agree to be responsible for overall project development and completion. We typically act as the primary developer on construction contracts for facilities and subcontract with bonded National and/or Regional Design Build Contractors. Where possible, we subcontract with construction companies that we have worked with previously. We make use of an in-house staff of architects and operational experts from various service disciplines (e.g. security, medical service, food service, programs and facility maintenance) as part of the team that participates from conceptual design through final construction of the project. This staff coordinates all aspects of the development with subcontractors and provides site-specific services.
When designing a facility, our architects use, with appropriate modifications, prototype designs we have used in developing prior projects. We believe that the use of these designs allows us to reduce the potential of cost overruns and construction delays and to reduce the number of correctional officers required to provide security at a facility, thus controlling costs both to construct and to manage the facility. Our facility designs also maintain security because they increase the area under direct surveillance by correctional officers and make use of additional electronic surveillance.
The following table sets forth our current expansion and development projects and their stages of completion for the Company's facilities:

Competitive Strengths

Leading Secure Services Provider Uniquely Positioned to Offer a Continuum of Care
We are the second largest provider of public-private partnership secure services and processing center facilities worldwide and the largest provider of community-based reentry services, youth services and electronic monitoring services in the U.S. secure services sector. We believe these leading market positions and our diverse and complementary service offerings enable us to meet the growing demand from our clients for comprehensive services throughout the entire corrections lifecycle. Our continuum of care platform enables us to provide consistency and continuity in case management, which we believe results in a higher quality of care for individuals in our care, reduces recidivism, lowers overall costs for our clients, improves public safety and facilitates successful reintegration of individuals back into society.

Attractive REIT Profile

We believe the key characteristics of our business make us a highly attractive REIT. We are in a real estate intensive industry. Since our inception, we have financed and developed dozens of facilities. We have a diversified set of investment grade customers in the form of government agencies which are required to pay us on time by law. We have historically experienced customer retention in excess of 90%. Our strong and predictable occupancy rates generate a stable and sustainable stream of revenue. We believe this stream of revenue combined with our low maintenance capital expenditure requirement translates into steady predictable cash flow. The REIT structure also allows us to pursue growth opportunities due to the capital intensive nature of our business.
Large Scale Operator with National Presence
We operate the seventh largest correctional system in the U.S. by number of beds, including the federal government and all 50 states. We currently have secure services operations in approximately 33 states and offer electronic monitoring services in every state. In addition, we have extensive experience in overall facility operations, including staff recruitment, administration, facility maintenance, food service, security, and in the supervision, treatment and education of individuals within our care. We believe our size and breadth of service offerings enable us to generate economies of scale which maximize our efficiencies and allows us to pass along cost savings to our clients. Our national presence also positions us to bid on and develop new facilities across the U.S.


Long-Term Relationships with High-Quality Government Customers
We have developed long-term relationships with our federal, state and other governmental customers, which we believe enhance our ability to win new contracts and retain existing business. We have provided secure management services to the United States Federal Government for 33 years, the State of California for 32 years, prior to the new California law AB 32 going into effect on January 1, 2020, the State of Texas for approximately 32 years, various Australian state government entities for 28 years and the State of Florida for approximately 26 years. These customers accounted for approximately 69% of our consolidated revenues for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.
Recurring Revenue with Strong Cash Flow
Our revenue base is derived from our long-term customer relationships, with contract renewal rates and facility occupancy rates both approximating 90% over the past five years. We have been able to expand our revenue base by continuing to reinvest our strong operating cash flow into expansionary projects and through strategic acquisitions that provide scale and further

enhance our service offerings. Our consolidated revenues have grown from $877 million in 2007 to $2.5 billion in 2019. We expect our operating cash flow to be well in excess of our anticipated annual maintenance capital expenditure needs, which would provide us significant flexibility for growth in capital expenditures, future dividend payments in connection with operating as a REIT, acquisitions and/or the repayment of indebtedness.

Sizeable International Business
Our international infrastructure, which leverages our operational excellence in the U.S., allows us to aggressively target foreign opportunities that our U.S. based competitors without overseas operations may have difficulty pursuing. We currently have international operations in Australia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Our international services business, including our facility construction and design business currently in Australia, generated approximately $262.0 million of revenues, representing approximately 11% of our consolidated revenues for the year ended December 31, 2019. Included in our international revenues in 2017 are construction revenues related to our project in Ravenhall, Australia which are presented in our Facility Design & Construction segment. Construction of the facility was completed during the fourth quarter of 2017. Included in our international revenues in 2019 and 2018 are construction revenues related to the expansion of our Fulham facility in Victoria, Australia which are also presented in our Facility Design & Construction segment. We believe we are well positioned to continue benefiting from foreign governments’ initiatives to enter into public-private partnerships for secure services.
Experienced, Proven Senior Management Team
Our Chief Executive Officer and founder, George C. Zoley, Ph.D., has led our Company for 35 years and has established a track record of growth and profitability. Under his leadership, our annual consolidated revenues from operations have grown from $40.0 million in 1991 to $2.5 billion in 2019. Dr. Zoley is one of the pioneers of the industry, having developed and opened what we believe to be one of the first public-private partnership secure services facilities in the U.S. in 1986. Our Chief Financial Officer, Brian R. Evans, has been with our Company for over 19 years and led our conversion to a REIT as well as the integration of our recent acquisitions and financing activities. Our top seven senior executives have an average tenure with our Company of over 10 years.





Business Strategies

Provide High Quality, Comprehensive Services and Cost Savings Throughout the Corrections Lifecycle
Our objective is to provide federal, state and local governmental agencies with a comprehensive offering of high quality, essential services at a lower cost than they themselves could achieve. We believe government agencies facing budgetary constraints will increasingly seek to outsource a greater proportion of their correctional needs to reliable providers that can enhance quality of service at a reduced cost. We believe our expanded and diversified service offerings uniquely position us to bundle our high quality services and provide a comprehensive continuum of care for our clients, which we believe will lead to lower cost outcomes for our clients and larger scale business opportunities for us.
Maintain Disciplined Operating Approach
We refrain from pursuing contracts that we do not believe will yield attractive profit margins in relation to the associated operational risks. In addition, although we engage in facility development from time to time without having a corresponding management contract award in place, we endeavor to do so only where we have determined that there is medium to long-term client demand for a facility in that geographical area. We have also elected not to enter certain international markets with a history of economic and political instability. We believe that our strategy of emphasizing lower risk and higher profit opportunities helps us to consistently deliver strong operational performance, lower our costs and increase our overall profitability.
Pursue International Growth Opportunities
As a global provider of public-private partnership secure services, we are able to capitalize on opportunities to operate existing or new facilities on behalf of foreign governments. We have seen increased business development opportunities including opportunities to cross sell our expanded service offerings in recent years in the international markets in which we operate and are currently exploring opportunities for several new projects. We will continue to actively bid on new international projects in our current markets and in new markets that fit our target profile for profitability and operational risk.

Selectively Pursue Acquisition Opportunities
We intend to continue to supplement our organic growth by selectively identifying, acquiring and integrating businesses that fit our strategic objectives and enhance our geographic platform and service offerings. Since 2005, and including the acquisitions of Community Education Centers ("CEC"), Protocol Criminal Justice, Inc. ("Protocol"), Soberlink, Inc. ("Soberlink") and the correctional and detention facilities of LCS Corrections Services, Inc. ("LCS Facilities" or "LCS"), we have completed ten acquisitions for total consideration, including debt assumed, in excess of $2.0 billion. Our management team utilizes a disciplined approach to analyze and evaluate acquisition opportunities, which we believe has contributed to our success in completing and integrating our acquisitions.
