ManpowerGroup Reports 3rd Quarter 2013 Results

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported that earnings per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2013 were $1.18 compared to 79 cents in the prior year period. Net earnings in the quarter were $94.7 million compared to $63.1 million a year earlier. Revenues for the third quarter were $5.2 billion, which is in line with the prior year period.

Included in the current year third quarter results is a restructuring charge, primarily related to office consolidations and severance costs, of $8.1 million ($6.2 million after tax or 8 cents per diluted share). Excluding these charges, earnings per diluted share in the quarter were $1.26. Net earnings in the third quarter were not materially impacted by changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year period.

Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO, said, "We continue to experience positive momentum in all of the established strategic focus areas. Our strong results for the third quarter were driven by more positive revenue trends and operational leverage achieved through our re-calibration efforts. Our European operations' revenue experienced slow but steadily improving trends throughout the quarter. Our team across the world remains positive and all of our brands are well positioned as we enter the fourth quarter.

"We are anticipating the fourth quarter of 2013 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $1.18 to $1.26, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 1 cent. This is before considering anticipated restructuring charges of $12 million to $17 million," Joerres stated.

Earnings per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $2.36 compared to $1.79 per diluted share in 2012. Net earnings were $186.8 million compared to $144.3 million in the prior year. Revenues for the nine-month period were $15.0 billion, a decrease of 3 percent from the prior year in reported U.S. dollars and in constant currency. Earnings for the nine month period in 2013 include restructuring costs of 58 cents per diluted share. Earnings in the prior year nine month period include restructuring costs and legal settlement costs of 25 cents per diluted share. Additionally, 2013 nine month results were unfavorably impacted 2 cents per diluted share due to changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year.

In conjunction with its third quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on October 21, 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.
