The GEO Group (NYSE: GEO) ("GEO" or the "Company") announced today that it is proposing, subject to market and other customary conditions, to issue $1.2 billion aggregate principal amount of senior notes, comprised of $700.0 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes due 2029 (the "Secured Notes") and $500.0 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2031 (the "Unsecured Notes" and together with the Secured Notes, the "notes"), in a private offering that is exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The notes will be guaranteed by GEO's domestic subsidiaries that are guarantors under a new senior secured credit facility and outstanding senior notes.

The gross proceeds of the offering, borrowings under a contemplated new $400.0 million Term Loan B under a new senior secured credit facility, and cash on hand will be used to refinance approximately $1.5 billion of existing indebtedness, including to fund the repurchase, redemption or other discharge of the Company’s existing Tranche 1 Term Loan and Tranche 2 Term Loan under its existing senior credit facility, the 9.50% senior second lien secured notes, the 10.50% senior second lien secured notes, and the 6.00% senior notes due 2026, to pay related transaction fees and expenses, and for general corporate purposes of the Company. Nothing in this press release should be construed as an offer to purchase, notice of redemption or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any of the existing term loans or notes, and the closing of this offering is not conditioned on the consummation of such repurchase, redemption or other discharge; however, the repurchase, redemption or other discharge of the existing term loans and notes are conditioned on the consummation of this offering and certain other financing transactions.

The notes will be offered in the United States only to persons reasonably believed to be “qualified institutional buyers” pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act, and outside the United States only to non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act and applicable state laws. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
