    “Our business performed exceptionally well during the second quarter,” stated CEO Mauricio Gutierrez in the company’s earnings press release. Driving that view is that income from continuing operations rose from $99 million in the year-ago period to $121 million in this year’s second quarter. Powering the company’s improvement was its retail segment, where adjusted EBITDA came in at $298 million, which was $94 million higher than the second quarter of last year. The company’s generation business also delivered stronger results as adjusted EBITDA rose $45 million to $197 million. Those dual fuels enabled the company to reaffirm its full-year outlook for adjusted EBITDA between $2.8 billion to $3 billion.
