    CoreCivic Announces Change in Corporate Structure and New Capital Allocation Strategy

    BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreCivic, Inc. (NYSE:  CXW) (the Company) announced today that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a plan to revoke its Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) election and become a taxable C corporation, effective January 1, 2021.  The decision is the result of an evaluation of corporate structure and capital allocation alternatives announced on June 17, 2020. Additionally, the Board voted unanimously to discontinue the Company's quarterly dividend and prioritize allocating the Company's substantial free cash flow to debt reduction, with a target total leverage ratio of 2.25x to 2.75x, excluding project specific non-recourse debt.  Following our first priority of debt reduction, we expect to allocate a substantial portion of our free cash flow to returning capital to shareholders, which could include share repurchases and future payments of dividends.  We will also pursue attractive growth opportunities, including new development opportunities in our Properties segment to meet the need to modernize outdated correctional infrastructure across the country, focus efforts on optimizing utilization of existing bed capacity in our Safety segment, and evaluate additional opportunities to provide services in our Community segment that have not been available under the REIT structure.  We also intend to capitalize on opportunities to increase our investment in programs and services that expand the leadership role we play in addressing the most pressing issues facing America's criminal justice system.  Beyond the operating cash flow we generate from our business, we also plan to evaluate the sale of up to $150 million in net proceeds of lower yielding non-core real estate assets in our Properties segment, which would allow us to accelerate the implementation of our revised capital allocation strategy.“CoreCivic will have much greater flexibility to allocate our substantial free cash flow in a manner that serves the best interests of our shareholders, our business, our government partners, and the people and communities we together serve,” said Damon T. Hininger, CoreCivic's President and Chief Executive Officer.  “We believe our revised structure and strategy, combined with a resilient core business, will result in significantly more liquidity, a stronger balance sheet and lower cost of capital, which will enable us to reduce our reliance on the capital markets. Each day our employees work tirelessly to implement life-changing programs for the people entrusted to our care.  We’re excited about the opportunity to create value for our shareholders while growing in even more ways that help those in our care succeed with the next step in their lives.”The Company will continue to operate as a REIT for the remainder of the 2020 tax year, and existing REIT requirements and limitations, including those established by the Company’s organizational documents, will remain in place until January 1, 2021. CoreCivic engaged Moelis & Company as financial advisor and Bass, Berry & Sims PLC and Latham & Watkins, LLP as legal advisors to assist in the process.About CoreCivicThe Company is a diversified government solutions company with the scale and experience needed to solve tough government challenges in flexible, cost-effective ways.  We provide a broad range of solutions to government partners that serve the public good through corrections and detention management, a growing network of residential reentry centers to help address America’s recidivism crisis, and government real estate solutions.  We are a publicly traded REIT and the nation’s largest owner of partnership correctional, detention and residential reentry facilities.  We also believe we are the largest private owner of real estate used by U.S. government agencies.  The Company has been a flexible and dependable partner for government for more than 35 years.

    CoreCivic Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

    BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreCivic, Inc. (NYSE:  CXW) (the Company) announced today its financial results for the second quarter of 2020.Financial Highlights – Second Quarter 2020 * Total revenue of $472.6 million, a decrease of 3.6% * CoreCivic Safety revenue of $424.1 million * CoreCivic Community revenue of $26.0 million * CoreCivic Properties revenue of $22.5 million * Net income attributable to common stockholders of $22.2 million * Diluted EPS of $0.18 * Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.33 * Normalized FFO per diluted share of $0.56 * Adjusted EBITDA of $101.1 millionDamon T. Hininger, CoreCivic’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I want to, once again, say a special thank you to our professionals across the country who have continued to provide selfless and extraordinary service to our government partners and individuals entrusted in our care during a time of unprecedented challenge.  We continue to closely monitor developments and guidance from our government partners and public health officials, including the CDC, for prevention and addressing of positive COVID-19 cases, and we have continuously implemented updated policies and procedures in response.”Commenting on the improvement in financial results in the second quarter of 2020 from the first quarter of 2020, Hininger continued, “Our financial performance has remained strong and our cash flow generation has once again shown its resiliency, even in light of the far-reaching impacts of the global pandemic, which began to impact our financial results at the end of the first quarter of 2020.  We are pleased with our operational response throughout this unprecedented year and remain prepared to quickly respond to the changing needs of our government partners, as they develop.”Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results Compared With Second Quarter 2019Net income attributable to common stockholders generated in the second quarter of 2020 totaled $22.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with $48.6 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019.  Adjusted for special items, net income in the second quarter of 2020 was $39.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share (Adjusted Diluted EPS), compared with adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2019 of $56.4 million, or $0.47 per diluted share.  Special items in the second quarter of 2020 included $11.7 million in asset impairments, $8.2 million in expenses associated with COVID-19 (including $6.3 million of “hero bonuses” for front line facility staff), $0.3 million of expenses associated with the evaluation of corporate structure alternatives, and a $2.8 million gain on the sale of real estate assets.  Special items in the second quarter of 2019 included $4.7 million in asset impairments, $2.7 million in facility start-up expenses, and $0.4 million of expenses associated with mergers and acquisitions (M&A).Funds From Operations (FFO) was $57.4 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $79.2 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019.  Normalized FFO, which excludes the special items described above, was $67.8 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020, compared with $82.6 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019.EBITDA was $83.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared with $107.5 million in the second quarter of 2019.  Adjusted EBITDA was $101.1 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared with $115.3 million in the second quarter of 2019.  Adjusted EBITDA excludes the special items described above.Financial results in the second quarter of 2020, compared with the second quarter of 2019, decreased primarily because of lower utilization of our existing contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, and modest utilization declines across many of our state-level contracts due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.  These declines in contract utilization were partially offset by utilization under new contracts executed in 2019 with (i) the U.S. Marshals Service, or USMS, to activate our previously idle 1,422-bed Eden Detention Center in Texas, (ii) ICE to activate our previously idle 910-bed Torrance County Detention Facility in New Mexico and to utilize capacity at our 2,232-bed Adams County Correctional Center in Mississippi, and (iii) the states of Mississippi and Kansas to utilize available capacity at our 2,672-bed Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility in Mississippi and our 1,896-bed Saguaro Correctional Facility in Arizona, respectively.Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results Compared With First Quarter 2020Excluding special items, adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2020 was $39.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared with net income in the first quarter of 2020 of $33.2 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, and adjusted net income in the first quarter of 2020 of $37.2 million, or $0.30 per diluted share.  Normalized FFO was $67.8 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2020, compared with $65.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020.  Adjusted EBITDA was $101.1 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared with $100.4 million in the first quarter of 2020.  Special items in the first quarter of 2020 included $0.5 million in asset impairments, $3.1 million of deferred tax expense related to our Kansas lease structure, and $0.3 million of expenses associated with M&A.Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO, and Normalized FFO, and, where appropriate, their corresponding per share amounts, are measures calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Please refer to the Supplemental Financial Information and related note following the financial statements herein for further discussion and reconciliations of these measures to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.Balance Sheet and Liquidity as of June 30, 2020As of June 30, 2020, cash on hand was $363.8 million, with an additional $154.2 million available under our revolving credit facility, reflecting a partial draw we made out of an abundance of caution in the first quarter of 2020 to strengthen our liquidity position and to maintain balance sheet flexibility as we manage through uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.  In July 2020, we repaid $50.0 million of amounts drawn on our revolving credit facility in the first quarter of 2020, and expect to continue to pay-down debt during the remainder of 2020 with substantial cash flow generated from operations.  Net cash provided by operating activities was $98.9 million during the second quarter of 2020, compared with $75.4 million in the first quarter of 2020, with the increase including positive fluctuations in working capital balances.  We have no material capital commitments, and no debt maturities until October 2022, when $250.0 million of 5.0% unsecured notes matures. Business Development UpdateUpdate on Lease of Southeast Correctional Complex. On December 9, 2019, we entered into a lease with the Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Corrections for our previously idled 656-bed Southeast Correctional Complex in Wheelwright, Kentucky.  The lease commenced July 1, 2020, has an initial term of ten years and includes five two-year renewal options.  We expect to report annual revenue of $4.1 million associated with this lease.  The facility had previously been idle since 2012.Expanded Management Contract with the State of Mississippi.  On January 9, 2020, we announced that we entered into a new emergency contract with the state of Mississippi to care for up to 375 of Mississippi's inmates at our Tallahatchie facility in Mississippi, to assist the State with significant challenges in its correctional system.  The contract had a term of ninety days, which the State could extend for up to two additional ninety-day terms.  The State subsequently expanded the contract to 1,000 inmates and exercised the extension options through October 4, 2020.  As of June 30, 2020, we cared for 565 inmates from Mississippi.Idling of Cimarron Correctional Facility and Tulsa Transitional Center in Oklahoma.  During the third quarter of 2020, largely due to a lower number of inmate populations in the state of Oklahoma resulting from COVID-19, combined with the consequential impact of COVID-19 on the State’s budget, we agreed with the State to idle our 1,692-bed Cimarron Correctional Facility during the third quarter of 2020.  We also transferred the remaining resident populations at our 390-bed Tulsa Transitional Center to Oklahoma’s system, idling the Tulsa facility during the third quarter of 2020.  During 2019, and for the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Cimarron and Tulsa facilities generated total facility net operating income of $2.5 million and incurred an operating loss of $1.0 million, respectively.  During the second quarter of 2020, we also recognized an asset impairment of $9.8 million on one of the residential reentry facilities in Oklahoma, based on its anticipated use as a commercial real estate property rather than a reentry facility.Notice to Exit Two Managed-Only ContractsDuring July 2020, we provided notice to our customers at the 1,046-bed Silverdale Detention Center and the 1,348-bed Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility, both in Tennessee, of our intent to terminate the contracts at these managed-only facilities.  We expect to transition operations of both facilities during the fourth quarter of 2020.  During 2019 and for the six months ended June 30, 2020, these facilities generated total facility net operating income of $0.8 million and incurred an operating loss of $2.3 million, respectively.  As a result of these expected contract terminations, during the second quarter of 2020, we also recognized goodwill impairments of $2.0 million associated with these two managed-only facilities.Financial GuidanceOn April 1, 2020, we withdrew our financial guidance because of uncertainties associated with COVID-19, and do not expect to provide financial guidance until we have further clarity around the uncertainties which continue to exist.  Our business is very durable, and continues to generate cash flow even during these unprecedented disruptions to the economy and criminal justice system.  This resiliency is due to the essential nature of our facilities and services in our Safety and Community segments, further enhanced by the diversification and stability of our Properties segment, all supported by payments from highly rated federal, state, and local government agencies. Supplemental Financial Information and Investor PresentationsWe have made available on our website supplemental financial information and other data for the second quarter

NOTE TO SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATIONAdjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO, and Normalized FFO, and, where appropriate, their corresponding per share metrics are non-GAAP financial measures.  The Company believes that these measures are important operating measures that supplement discussion and analysis of the Company’s results of operations and are used to review and assess operating performance of the Company and its properties and their management teams.  The Company believes that it is useful to provide investors, lenders and security analysts disclosures of its results of operations on the same basis that is used by management.  FFO, in particular, is a widely accepted non-GAAP supplemental measure of REIT performance, grounded in the standards for FFO established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT).NAREIT defines FFO as net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and extraordinary items, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate and impairment of depreciable real estate and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures calculated to reflect funds from operations on the same basis.  EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Normalized FFO are useful as supplemental measures of performance of the Company’s properties because such measures do not take into account depreciation and amortization, or with respect to EBITDA, the impact of the Company’s tax provisions and financing strategies. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires depreciation (except on land), this accounting presentation assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes at a level rate over time.  Because of the unique structure, design and use of the Company’s properties, management believes that assessing performance of the Company’s properties without the impact of depreciation or amortization is useful.  The Company may make adjustments to FFO from time to time for certain other income and expenses that it considers non-recurring, infrequent or unusual, even though such items may require cash settlement, because such items do not reflect a necessary or ordinary component of the ongoing operations of the Company.  Start-up expenses represent the incremental operating losses incurred during the period we activate idle correctional facilities.  Normalized FFO excludes the effects of such items.  The Company calculates Adjusted Net Income by adding to GAAP Net Income expenses associated with the Company’s debt refinancing, M&A activity, start-up expenses, and certain impairments and other charges that the Company believes are unusual or non-recurring to provide an alternative measure of comparing operating performance for the periods presented.  Even though expenses associated with mergers and acquisitions may be recurring, the magnitude and timing fluctuate based on the timing and scope of M&A activity, and therefore, such expenses, which are not a necessary component of the ongoing operations of the Company, may not be comparable from period to period.Other companies may calculate Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO, and Normalized FFO differently than the Company does, or adjust for other items, and therefore comparability may be limited. Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO, and Normalized FFO and, where appropriate, their corresponding per share measures are not measures of performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities, a measure of liquidity or an alternative to net income as indicators of the Company’s operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP.  This data should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related notes included in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Contact:Investors: Cameron Hopewell - Managing Director, Investor Relations - (615) 263-3024  Financial Media: David Gutierrez, Dresner Corporate Services - (312) 780-7204
