CCA Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Financial Results

Provides 2015 Full-Year EPS Guidance of $1.94 to $2.02 per Diluted Share and FFO Guidance of $2.67 to $2.75 per Diluted Share

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2015) - CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) (NYSE: CXW), America's largest owner of partnership correctional and detention facilities, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2014.

Fourth Quarter 2014 Highlights Compared with Fourth Quarter 2013

  • Diluted EPS of $0.25 or $0.49 adjusted for special items, an 11.4% increase
  • Adjusted net income increased 11.5% to $57.7 million from $51.8 million
  • Normalized FFO per diluted share increased 8.1% to $0.67
  • AFFO per diluted share increased 10.2% to $0.65

Full Year 2014 Highlights Compared with Full Year 2013

  • Diluted EPS of $1.66 or $1.92 adjusted for special items, a 4.9% increase
  • Adjusted net income increased 5.4% to $225.0 million from $213.4 million
  • Normalized FFO per diluted share increased 4.7% to $2.65
  • AFFO per diluted share increased 3.2% to $2.57

"We are pleased to have concluded 2014 with a fourth quarter that delivered strong Adjusted EPS and Adjusted FFO per share growth," said Damon Hininger, CCA's chief executive officer. "We successfully activated operations of the first 480 beds for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at the South Texas Family Residential Center in the quarter, and in early January 2015 we began receiving an additional 500 inmates from the state of Arizona at our Red Rock Correctional Center. We are encouraged by the positive momentum these accomplishments provide as we begin 2015 and look for additional partnership opportunities to generate growth."

Fourth Quarter Results

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $423.5 million compared to $431.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The decline in revenue was primarily attributable to the termination of contracts in 2014 that resulted in a year-over-year reduction in total revenue of $23.7 million, while facility net operating income (NOI) for these terminated contracts represented a $1.5 million loss in the fourth quarter of 2013. The decline in revenue was also attributable to a one-time contract adjustment by one of our federal partners that resulted in the recognition of $13.0 million of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2013, as well as an offsetting $13.0 million expense accrual, as previously disclosed in the prior year quarter. These reductions in revenue were partially offset by an increase in revenue resulting from the opening of the South Texas Family Residential Center in the fourth quarter 2014 and from the full quarter impact from the lease of our California City facility, which became effective on December 1, 2013. In total, NOI increased $10.5 million, from $114.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 to $125.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, an increase of 9.2%.

Net income generated in the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled $30.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to net income of $47.5 million, or $0.41 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter. During the fourth quarter of 2014, we reported non-cash asset impairment charges of $27.8 million for the 850-bed Queensgate Correctional Facility, idle since 2009, and the 2,103-bed Mineral Wells Pre-Parole Transfer Facility, idle since 2013, due to the challenges of utilizing these non-core assets for correctional purposes. The prior year quarter included non-cash impairment charges of $5.5 million, as well as expenses associated with an acquisition and expenses associated with our conversion to a REIT totaling $0.5 million. Excluding these special items, adjusted net income during the fourth quarter of 2014 was $57.7 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared with $51.8 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter, an increase of 11.4% in adjusted diluted earnings per share.

Normalized FFO was $79.4 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, during the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with $72.8 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, during the fourth quarter of 2013. AFFO was $76.8 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, during the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with $68.9 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, during the fourth quarter of 2013. Normalized FFO and AFFO also reflect the special items in both quarters.

Adjusted net income, NOI, FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO, and 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 GAAP measures.

Full Year Results

Financial results for the year ended December 31, 2014, as compared with the same prior-year period, were as follows:

  • Total revenue of $1,646.9 million versus $1,694.3 million
  • Diluted EPS of $1.66 versus $2.70
  • Pro Forma Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.92 versus $1.83
  • Pro Forma Normalized FFO per diluted share of $2.65 versus $2.53
  • Pro Forma AFFO per diluted share of $2.57 versus $2.49

Per share amounts were negatively impacted by the issuance of 13.9 million shares of common stock in connection with the payment of a special dividend on May 20, 2013. Calculating per share amounts as if the shares were issued at the beginning of 2013, Adjusted Diluted EPS was $1.92 in 2014 compared with Pro Forma Adjusted Diluted EPS of $1.83 in 2013, an increase of 4.9%; Normalized FFO per diluted share was $2.65 in 2014 compared with Pro Forma Normalized FFO per diluted share of $2.53 in 2013, an increase of 4.7%; and AFFO per diluted share was $2.57 in 2014 compared with Pro Forma AFFO per diluted share of $2.49 in 2013, a 3.2% increase.

Partnership Development Update

South Texas Family Residential Center Update. In the fourth quarter of 2014, ICE began housing the first residents at the South Texas Family Residential Center, a facility we lease in Dilley, Texas. The facility is currently designed to house up to 480 individuals while ongoing construction will provide housing in 480-bed increments for up to 2,400 individuals upon completion in the second quarter of 2015. The new facility and services are being provided under an amended Intergovernmental Service Agreement (IGSA), which has a term of up to four years, and can be extended by bi-lateral modification. During 2014, the Company recognized $21.0 million in revenue associated with the amended IGSA.

Trousdale Turner Correctional Center UpdateConstruction of the new 2,552-bed Trousdale Turner Correctional Center remains on budget and on schedule for completion near the end of 2015. The total cost of construction is estimated at $140.0 million to $145.0 million, including $60.7 million invested through December 31, 2014. We expect to begin receiving inmates from the state of Tennessee in early 2016 pursuant to a new IGSA with Trousdale County.

Otay Mesa Detention Center Update. Construction of the new 1,492-bed Otay Mesa Detention Center is slightly under budget and on schedule for completion near the end of the third quarter of 2015. The total cost of construction is estimated at $153.0 million to $157.0 million, including $121.5 million invested through December 31, 2014. We plan to begin transferring federal inmate populations to this new facility from the 1,154-bed San Diego Correctional Facility during the third quarter of 2015.

Red Rock Correctional Center Update. During the first quarter of 2014, we received 500 inmates from the state of Arizona at our 1,596-bed Red Rock Correctional Center pursuant to a new management contract that became effective January 1, 2014. During January 2015, we began receiving additional inmates under this contract, and expect the population to reach approximately 1,000 inmates at this facility during the first quarter of 2015.

Houston Educational Facility Update.  In November 2014, we closed on the sale of the Houston Educational Facility, a non-core asset that had been idle since 2012. The net proceeds of the sale, amounting to $4.2 million after closing costs, were used to pay-down our senior bank credit facility.

2015 Guidance

We currently expect Diluted EPS for the first quarter of 2015 to be in the range of $0.44 to $0.45, while FFO and AFFO per share are expected to be in the range of $0.62 to $0.63 and $0.61 to $0.62, respectively. For the full year 2015, we expect Diluted EPS to be in the range of $1.94 to $2.02, while FFO and AFFO per share are expected to be in the range of $2.67 to $2.75 and $2.62 to $2.69, respectively. 

During 2015, we expect to invest approximately $193.0 million to $208.0 million in capital expenditures, consisting of $135.0 million to $145.0 million in on-going prison construction and expenditures related to potential land acquisitions, and certain leasehold improvements and equipment at the South Texas Family Residential Center; approximately $25.0 million to $26.0 million in maintenance capital expenditures on real estate assets; and $33.0 million to $37.0 million for capital expenditures on other assets and information technology.

NOTES TO SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Note A: Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Funds From Operations (FFO), Normalized FFO and Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO), and their corresponding per share metrics are non-GAAP financial measures. CCA 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 correctional facilities and their management teams. CCA 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 and AFFO, in particular, are widely accepted non-GAAP supplemental measures of REIT performance each 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 generally accepted accounting principles, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and extraordinary items, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate and impairment of depreciable real estate. EBITDA, FFO and AFFO are useful as supplemental measures of performance of the Company's corrections facilities because they don't 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. CCA 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 component of the ongoing operations of the Company. Normalized FFO excludes the effects of such items. CCA calculates AFFO by adding to Normalized FFO non-cash expenses such as the amortization of deferred financing costs and stock-based compensation, and by subtracting from Normalized FFO recurring real estate expenditures that are capitalized and then amortized, but which are necessary to maintain a REIT's properties and its revenue stream. Some of these capital expenditures contain a discretionary element with respect to when they are incurred, while others may be more urgent. Therefore, these capital expenditures may fluctuate from quarter to quarter, depending on the nature of the expenditures required, seasonal factors such as weather, and budgetary conditions. CCA calculates Adjusted Net Income by adding or deducting from GAAP Net Income amounts associated with the Company's debt refinancing, REIT conversion, mergers and acquisitions activity and certain impairments that the Company believes are unusual or nonrecurring to provide an alternative measure of comparing operating performance for the periods presented. 

Other companies may calculate Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO differently than the Company does, or adjust for other items, and therefore comparability may be limited. Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO and 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.

Note B: On May 20, 2013, CCA paid a special dividend in connection with its conversion to a REIT. Stockholders were allowed to elect to receive their payment of the special dividend either in all cash, all shares of CCA common stock, or a combination of cash and CCA common stock, except that CCA placed a limit on the aggregate amount of cash payable to stockholders. Under ASC 505, "Equity" and ASU 2010-01, "Accounting for Distributions to Shareholders with Components of Stock and Cash, a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force", a distribution that allows shareholders to elect to receive cash or stock with a potential limitation on the total amount of cash that all shareholders can elect to receive in the aggregate is considered a share issuance that is reflected in per share results prospectively. As such, the stock portion of the special dividend is presented prospectively in basic and diluted per share results and was not presented retroactively for all periods presented as it would, for example, with a stock split or a stock dividend. As a result CCA believes investors would benefit from seeing the operating performance for the comparable periods accounting for the effect of the special dividend in both periods. Therefore, for comparison purposes, CCA has presented per share results on a pro forma basis as if the shares issued in the special dividend were issued as of the beginning of the periods presented.
