    Source: Nasdaq GlobeNewswire / 02 May 2018 16:15:40   America/New_York

    NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreCivic, Inc. (NYSE:CXW) (the Company) announced today its financial results for the first quarter of 2018.

    First Quarter 2018 Highlights

    • Total revenue of $440.9 million
    • Net income of $37.8 million
    • CoreCivic Community revenue of $24.8 million, up 45% from the prior year quarter
    • CoreCivic Properties revenue of $11.6 million, up 18% from the prior year quarter
    • Diluted EPS of $0.32
    • Normalized FFO per diluted share of $0.53
    • Adjusted EBITDA of $92.1 million

    "Our first quarter presented multiple positive developments for the Company as we were activating two new state contracts in Ohio and Kentucky, completed acquisitions that continue to diversify the services and real estate solutions we provide to our government partners, and are actively pursuing multiple market opportunities that have the potential to contribute positively to our future growth," said Damon T. Hininger, CoreCivic's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We are also pleased with the recent private placement of 20-year notes to fully finance the construction of our new facility in Lansing, Kansas, and believe the investment grade pricing of these notes provide us with a very competitive solution for other jurisdictions in need of replacement facilities."

    First Quarter 2018 Results

    Net income generated in the first quarter of 2018 totaled $37.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared with $50.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2017.  Adjusted for special items, net income in the first quarter of 2018 was $38.3 million, or $0.32 per diluted share (Adjusted Diluted EPS), compared with adjusted net income in the first quarter of 2017 of $50.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share.  Special items in the first quarter of 2018 included expenses associated with mergers and acquisitions (M&A) of $0.5 million, while special items in the first quarter of 2017 included M&A expenses of $0.1 million and asset impairments of $0.3 million. 

    Funds From Operations (FFO) was $62.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $73.7 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2017.  Normalized FFO, which excludes the aforementioned special items, was $62.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $74.1 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2017.
    Per share results in the first quarter of 2018 compared with the first quarter of 2017 were negatively impacted by approximately $0.02 per share as a result of the expiration of a contract with the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) at our Eden Detention Center in April 2017, $0.02 per share as a result of start-up expenses at our Lee Adjustment Center that we are activating pursuant to a new contract with the Kentucky Department of Corrections announced in November 2017, and an increase in interest expense of $0.02 per share as a result of the repayment of floating rate, short-term borrowings under our revolving credit facility with net proceeds from the issuance in October 2017 of $250.0 million of ten-year unsecured senior notes at a fixed interest rate of 4.75%.  The prior year quarter also reflected a surge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) populations that did not recur in the first quarter of 2018.  Financial results in the first quarter of 2018 were positively impacted by increased utilization of existing contracts by the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) and contributions from new contracts with the states of Ohio and Nevada, the city of Mesa and Cibola County, New Mexico.

    EBITDA was $97.1 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $105.5 million in the first quarter of 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA was $92.1 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $100.1 million in the first quarter of 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA excludes the aforementioned special items, and includes the portion of rental payments for the South Texas Family Residential Center (STFRC) that is classified as depreciation and interest expense in our consolidated financial statements.

    Adjusted net income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO, and Normalized FFO 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.

    CoreCivic Safety

    Total revenue for CoreCivic Safety in the first quarter of 2018 was $404.5 million compared with $418.7 million in the first quarter of 2017.  The decrease in revenue compared with the prior year quarter principally resulted from the following previously disclosed events:

    • Expiration of four managed-only contracts with the state of Texas in the second and third quarters of 2017.  While these facilities collectively generated $12.2 million of total revenue in the first quarter of 2017, they only contributed $0.1 million of operating income before depreciation and amortization during such period.
    • Expiration of a contract with the BOP at our Eden Detention Center in April 2017, which resulted in a reduction to revenue of $7.9 million.
    • The unprecedented surge in ICE detainee populations in the prior year quarter that did not recur in the first quarter of 2018, which resulted in a reduction to revenue of $5.9 million.

    We entered into a number of new contracts and expanded existing contracts that favorably impacted the first quarter of 2018 by generating:

    • $5.7 million of additional revenue compared with the prior year quarter at our Northeast Ohio Correctional Center primarily as a result of (i) an amended contract with the state of Ohio to house up to an additional 996 offenders that commenced in the third quarter of 2017, which is expected to reach normalized occupancy in the second quarter of 2018, and (ii) a new contract executed during the fourth quarter of 2016 with ICE to house detainees at this facility;
    • $7.2 million of additional revenue compared to the prior year quarter under existing contracts with the USMS; and
    • $2.7 million of additional revenue compared to the prior year quarter under new contracts with the state of Nevada, the city of Mesa, Arizona and Cibola County, New Mexico.

    CoreCivic Community

    Total revenue for CoreCivic Community in the first quarter of 2018 was $24.8 million compared with $17.1 million in the first quarter of 2017.  The increase in revenue compared with the prior year quarter principally resulted from the following previously disclosed events:

    • $3.3 million of additional revenue compared with the prior year quarter as a result of the acquisition of six additional residential reentry facilities, representing an aggregate of 849 additional beds, since the beginning of the first quarter 2017.
    • $4.1 million of additional revenue compared with the prior year quarter generated from non-residential correctional alternative revenue, resulting from the January 2018 acquisition of Rocky Mountain Offender Management Systems, LLC.

    CoreCivic Properties

    Total revenue for CoreCivic Properties in the first quarter of 2018 was $11.6 million compared with $9.9 million in the first quarter of 2017.  The increase in revenue compared with the prior year quarter principally resulted from the previously disclosed acquisition of the 261,000-square foot Capital Commerce Center in Tallahassee, Florida in January 2018.

    Second Amended and Restated Senior Credit Facility

    On April 17, 2018, we entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the "New Credit Agreement") in an aggregate principal amount of up to $1.0 billion, replacing the Company's existing $900.0 million revolving credit facility and term loan, which had an outstanding balance of $198.0 million on the revolving credit facility and $82.5 million on the term loan as of March 31, 2018 (collectively, the "Existing Credit Facility").  The New Credit Agreement provides for a term loan of $200.0 million and a revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $800.0 million.  The New Credit Agreement, among other things, extends the maturity of the Existing Credit Facility from July 2020 to April 2023, and increases the total leverage covenant of the Existing Credit Facility from 5.0x to 5.5x.  The New Credit Agreement also contains an "accordion" feature that provides for uncommitted incremental extensions of credit in the form of increases in the revolving commitments or incremental term loans of up to $350.0 million, as requested by CoreCivic, and provides additional flexibility by increasing certain permitted investment, disposition, and borrowing thresholds.  Interest rate margins, unused facility fees, and commitment fees for letters of credit are unchanged from the Existing Credit Facility, except for the addition of a new interest rate margin and fee tier to accommodate the increase in the covenant for total leverage from 5.0x to 5.5x.  All other terms remain substantially the same.  We currently expect to report a charge of approximately $1.0 million during the second quarter of 2018 for the write-off of a portion of existing loan costs and other costs associated with the New Credit Agreement.

    Private Placement of 4.43% Non-Recourse Senior Secured 20 Year Notes

    On April 20, 2018, CoreCivic of Kansas, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, priced $159.5 million in aggregate principal amount of non-recourse senior secured notes, in a private placement pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  We will use the proceeds of the private placement to fund the previously disclosed construction of a new 2,432-bed correctional facility with administrative and support buildings located in Lansing, Kansas, along with costs and expenses of the project.  The new correctional facility will replace the 2,405-bed Lansing Correctional Facility, the State's largest correctional complex for adult male inmates, which was originally constructed in the 1860s.  The non-recourse senior secured notes will have a yield to maturity of 4.43% and will be scheduled to mature approximately twenty years following completion of the project, expected to occur during the first quarter of 2020.  Upon completion of construction, we will lease the new correctional facility to the Kansas Department of Corrections for a twenty-year term.  The private placement is expected to close in the second quarter of 2018.

    NOTE TO SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION

    Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, FFO, and Normalized FFO, and, where appropriate, their corresponding per share metrics are non-GAAP financial measures.  CoreCivic 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 facilities and their management teams. CoreCivic 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 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, Adjusted EBITDA, and Normalized FFO are useful as supplemental measures of performance of the Company's facilities 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.  However, a portion of the rental payments for the STFRC is classified as depreciation and interest expense for financial reporting purposes.  Adjusted EBITDA includes such depreciation and interest expense in order to more properly reflect the cash flows associated with this lease.  CoreCivic 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.  CoreCivic calculates Adjusted Net Income by adding to GAAP Net Income expenses associated with the Company’s debt refinancing, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity, restructuring charges, 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 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.
