ManpowerGroup Reports 3rd Quarter 2012 Results

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported that earnings per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were 79 cents compared to 97 cents in the prior year period. Net earnings in the quarter were $63.1 million compared to $79.6 million a year earlier. Revenues for the third quarter were $5.2 billion, a decrease of 11 percent from the prior year period, or a decrease of 4 percent in constant currency.

Third quarter results were unfavorably impacted by 6 cents per diluted share, as foreign currencies were relatively weaker compared to the third quarter of 2011.

Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO, said, "Clearly, the economic environment continues to be challenging as we experienced a revenue decline of 4 percent in constant currency. However, the ManpowerGroup team did an extraordinary job of aggressively selling our value to our clients which resulted in stabilizing our gross margin. Additionally, we were extremely vigilant regarding cost and efficiency. Both contributed nicely to the third quarter performance. We will continue to pursue efficient models to deliver our service while creating more agility throughout the entire organization.

"We are anticipating the fourth quarter of 2012 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of 72 cents to 80 cents, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 1 cent. This is before considering anticipated reorganization charges," Joerres stated.

Earnings per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $1.79 compared to $2.26 per diluted share in 2011. Net earnings were $144.3 million compared to $188.0 million in the prior year. Revenues for the nine-month period were $15.5 billion, a decrease of 6 percent from the prior year, or a decrease of 1 percent in constant currency. Foreign currency exchange rates had an unfavorable impact of 14 cents for the nine-month period.

In conjunction with its third quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on October 19, 2012 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.
