ManpowerGroup Reports 1st Quarter 2013 Results

Apr 19, 2013, 07:30 ET from ManpowerGroup

MILWAUKEE, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported that net earnings for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $23.9 million, or 31 cents per diluted share, compared to net earnings of $40.2 million, or 50 cents per diluted share, a year earlier. Revenues for the first quarter were $4.8 billion, a decrease of 6% from the prior year period.

Included in the first quarter results is a restructuring charge, primarily related to office consolidations and severance costs of $34.8 million ($25.3 million after tax or 32 cents per diluted share). Net earnings in the first quarter were negatively impacted by 1 cent per diluted share, as foreign currencies were slightly weaker compared to the prior year period.

Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO, said, "The first quarter performance was largely attributed to slightly stronger than anticipated revenues and tax credits. Additionally, our recalibration of our cost base is advancing ahead of schedule. Those efforts, which are focused on simplifying our business, were initially rolled out in the fourth quarter of 2012 and continued into the first quarter, resulting in the restructuring charge in the quarter. Our team has done an outstanding job dealing with the high levels of uncertainty in Europe and has continued to address client and prospect needs with our unique suite of solutions.

"We anticipate second quarter earnings per share will range between 84 cents to 92 cents before restructuring charges. We do not expect changes in currency rates to have a significant impact in the quarter based on current exchange rates."

In conjunction with its first quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on April 19, 2013 at 7:30 a.m. CDT (8:30 a.m. EDT). Interested parties are invited to listen to the webcast and view the presentation by logging on to http://www.manpowergroup.com/investors.
