ManpowerGroup Reports 4th Quarter and Full Year 2013 Results

MILWAUKEE, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported net earnings of $1.25 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared to 68 cents per diluted share in the prior period. The net earnings in the quarter were $101.2 million compared to $53.3 million a year earlier. Revenues for the fourth quarter totaled $5.3 billion, an increase of 1 percent from the year earlier period in U.S. dollars and constant currency.

Included in the current year fourth quarter results is a restructuring charge related to our simplification and cost recalibration plan of $26.5 million ($19.4 million after tax or 24 cents per diluted share). Included in the prior year fourth quarter is a restructuring charge of $26.6 million ($18.3 million after tax or 23 cents per diluted share). Excluding these charges, net earnings per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2013 increased 64 percent to $1.49 per share compared to 91 cents per share in the year earlier period. Fourth quarter results were favorably impacted by 1 cent per diluted share as foreign currencies were relatively stronger compared to the prior year.

ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO, Jeff Joerres, said: "The fourth quarter was a good quarter with solid performances from many of our major geographies and business units. Our team continues to execute very well which is contributing nicely to our cost recalibration efforts. We were able to achieve the upper end of our revenue targets as we are experiencing a slightly more positive environment, particularly in Europe. This said, while we are gaining increased confidence we remain guarded on revenue growth in the first quarter.

"We are anticipating diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of 2014 to be in the range of 62 to 70 cents," Joerres stated.

Net earnings per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $3.62 compared to $2.47 per diluted share in 2012. Net earnings were $288.0 million compared to $197.6 million in the prior year. Revenues for the year were $20.3 billion, a decrease of 2 percent from the prior year in U.S. dollars and constant currency.

Earnings for the full year 2013 include restructuring costs of 82 cents per diluted share. Earnings in the prior year include restructuring costs and legal settlement costs of 48 cents per diluted share. Excluding these charges, net earnings per diluted share for 2013 increased 51 percent to $4.44 per share compared to $2.95 the prior year. Additionally, 2013 results were unfavorably impacted by 1 cent per diluted share due to changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year.

In conjunction with its fourth quarter and full year earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on January 30, 2014 at 7:30 a.m. CST (8:30 a.m. EST). Interested parties are invited to listen to the webcast and view the presentation by logging on to http://www.manpowergroup.com/investors.

(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.
