CCA Facilities Locations

“Only the second detention facility in the nation designed to house families, the center is part of a new push by U.S. immigration authorities to detain rather than release illegal immigrants awaiting deportation.
“The location is owned and run by Nashville-based Corrections Corporation of America, which, like other private prison operators, is bracing for an increase in business from measures to curb illegal immigration. The Hutto Center opened last week under a contract with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, reversing last year’s decision by CCA to shut down the then-underutilized prison.

“We do expect there’ll be an increased need for detention beds,” said John Ferguson, chief executive with CCA, citing the spotlight on immigration including legislation being discussed in Congress.”

CCA was founded in 1983 by Nashville businessmen Thomas Beasley and Doctor Crants along with Don Hutto, who was then the president-elect of the American Correctional Association. In 1983, CCA was awarded the first private design, build and manage contract from the Immigration and Naturalization Service for 330 detainees in Houston, and the Houston Processing Center opened in early 1984.

Closure of T. Don Hutto Correctional Center

In a separate announcement, CCA has indicated its intent to cease operations at the CCA-owned and operated T. Don Hutto Correctional Center located in Taylor, Texas on May 14, 2004, due to low inmate population demands in the facility’s region. CCA expects to be able to transfer the majority of the approximate 60 federal offenders currently housed in the 480-bed facility to other CCA-operated facilities.

CCA does not expect the closing of this facility to have a material impact on its previously announced 2004 earnings per share guidance.

Corrections Corporation of America Announces Agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement for CCA Texas Facility

December 2, 2005

Corrections Corporation of America, the nation’s largest provider of corrections management services to government agencies, announced today that it has reached an agreement with United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to manage up to 600 detainees at CCA’s T. Don Hutto Correctional Center in Taylor, Texas.

CCA management expects to begin accepting ICE detainees on February 1, 2006. Although the contract does not provide for a guaranteed occupancy, the Company expects the facility to be substantially occupied before the end of the second quarter of 2006. The Company intends to provide guidance for 2006 in its fourth quarter earnings release and conference call expected to occur in February 2006.

“Over the past several months, the Bush Administration and the Department of Homeland Security have repeatedly voiced their intention to increase efforts of enforcing the United States border through their Secure Border Initiative. The Secure Border Initiative is a comprehensive multi-year plan to secure America’s borders and reduce illegal immigration. We believe this contract represents an important step in this ongoing initiative being undertaken by ICE,” stated John Ferguson, president and chief executive officer.

Ferguson continued, “CCA is gratified by the continued confidence that Immigration and Customs Enforcement has placed in its partnership with us. We remain prepared to accommodate the future needs of this long-standing CCA customer.”
