NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/09/12 -- Continental Prison Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CPSZ) dba EZ Card & Kiosk, the industry leader in offering financial transaction services to correctional and judicial markets in the US, announced they are expanding aggressively and have secured nearly 4% of the total daily population of inmates in the US. Continental hopes to see the same success that companies like Corrections Corp of America (NYSE: CXW), The Geo Group (NYSE: GEO) and Consolidated Communications Holdings (NASDAQ: CNSL) have gained through being involved in correctional facilities.
IBIS World reports that the Correctional Facility Market size is over $36 billion dollars and expected to continue to grow.
