ManpowerGroup Reports 2nd Quarter and First Half 2013 Results

MILWAUKEE, July 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported that net earnings per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were 87 cents compared to 51 cents in the prior year period. Net earnings in the second quarter were $68.2 million compared to $41.0 million a year earlier. Revenues for the second quarter were $5.0 billion, a decrease of 3 percent from the year earlier period in U.S. dollars and in constant currency.

Included in the current year second quarter results is a restructuring charge, primarily related to office consolidations and severance costs, of $20.0 million ($14.4 million after tax or 18 cents per diluted share). Excluding these charges, earnings per diluted share in the quarter were $1.05. Net earnings in the second quarter were unfavorably impacted by 1 cent per diluted share, as foreign currencies were relatively weaker compared to the prior year period.

ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO Jeffrey A. Joerres, said, "The second quarter results are solid evidence of our team's strong execution of our recalibration efforts and a stabilizing global economy. We continue to make progress on improving our business mix with our ManpowerGroup Solutions, led by Recruitment Process Outsourcing growing at 19%.

"We are anticipating the third quarter of 2013 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $1.02 to $1.10, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 1 cent," Joerres stated.

Earnings per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $1.17 compared to $1.01 per diluted share in 2012. Net earnings for the period were $92.1 million compared to $81.2 million in the prior year. Revenues for the six-month period were $9.8 billion, a decrease of 5 percent from the prior year or a decrease of 4 percent in constant currency. Earnings per diluted share for the current year six month period include restructuring charges of 51 cents per diluted share. Foreign currency exchange rates had an unfavorable impact of 2 cents for the six-month period.

In conjunction with its second quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on July 19, 2013 at 7:30 a.m. CDT (8:30 a.m. EDT).

(a)

On a consolidated basis, the French business tax is reported in provision for income taxes, in accordance with the current accounting guidance on income taxes. Prior to the second quarter of 2013, we internally reviewed the financial results of our French operations including the French business tax within OUP given the operational nature of these taxes. While we continue to view this tax as operational, during the second quarter of 2013 we changed our internal reporting to exclude the French business tax from the OUP of our France reportable segment. Therefore our France reportable segment OUP now excludes the business tax and we no longer need to show the business tax amount separately to reconcile to the consolidated results. All previously reported segment results have been restated to conform to the current year presentation. This change in segment reporting has no impact on our reporting of consolidated results.
