Results. Total revenue was $500.7 million for the quarter compared to $458.0 million in the prior year. This exceeded our expectations of $478 million. All of CoreCivic’s segments experienced growth over the prior year due to higher populations at the federal, state, and local populations. Another driver was revenue from ICE increasing from the prior year, as last year had Title 42 still enacted. Net income was $9.5 million, or $0.08/sh, from $12.4 million, or $0.11, last year. We estimated net income of $21.7 million or $0.19 per diluted share. Adjusted EPS was $0.25 for 1Q24, excluding one-time costs associated with the debt refinancing.

Debt Refinancing Completed and Share Repurchases. CoreCivic completed its registered public debt offering of $500 million on March 12, 2024. The offering, in conjunction with the Company’s revolving credit facility, paid off CoreCivic’s senior unsecured notes due 2026. The Company repurchased 2.7 million shares of its common stock during the quarter at an aggregate purchase price of $39.4 million, or approximately $14.59 per share.
