ManpowerGroup Reports 2nd Quarter and First Half 2014 Results

MILWAUKEE, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported that net earnings per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were $1.35 compared to 87 cents in the prior year period. Net earnings in the second quarter were $109.8 million compared to $68.2 million a year earlier. Revenues for the second quarter were $5.3 billion, an increase of 6 percent from the year earlier period in U.S. dollars and 4 percent in constant currency.

Included in the prior 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). There were no restructuring charges in the current year quarter. Net earnings in the second quarter were favorably impacted by 3 cents per diluted share, as foreign currencies were relatively stronger compared to the prior year period.

ManpowerGroup CEO Jonas Prising, said, "In the second quarter, we saw our revenue growth improve in a number of major operations including the U.S., U.K. and Italy. This combined with our continued focus on efficiency and productivity, has resulted in good operational leverage and healthy earnings growth."

"We are anticipating the third quarter of 2014 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $1.46 to $1.54, which includes an estimated favorable currency impact of 2 cents," Prising stated.

Earnings per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $2.21 compared to $1.17 per diluted share in 2013. Net earnings for the period were $179.9 million compared to $92.1 million in the prior year. Revenues for the six-month period were $10.2 billion, an increase of 4 percent from the prior year or an increase of 3 percent in constant currency. Earnings per diluted share for the prior year six month period include restructuring charges of 51 cents per diluted share. Foreign currency exchange rates had a favorable 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 21, 2014 at 7:30 a.m. CDT (8:30 a.m. EDT).
