2Q22 Results. Sounding like a broken record, GEO posted above expected operating results for 2Q22. Revenue for the quarter came in at $588.2 million, up from $565.4 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $132.3 million, AFFO was $0.69 per diluted share, EPS was $0.37, and adjusted net income $0.42 per share. In the year ago period, GEO reported $118.4 million, $0.71, $0.29, and $0.41, respectively. We had forecast $560 million, $98.5 million, $0.58, $0.32, and $0.32, respectively. GEO’s results highlight the resiliency of the business model, in our opinion.
