ManpowerGroup Reports 3rd Quarter 2018 Results

MILWAUKEE, October 19, 2018 -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported that net earnings per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $2.43 compared to $2.04 in the prior year period. Net earnings in the quarter were $158.0 million compared to
$137.7 million a year earlier. Revenues for the third quarter were $5.4 billion, a decrease of 1% from the year earlier period.


Financial results in the quarter were impacted by the stronger U.S. dollar relative to
foreign currencies compared to the prior year period. On a constant currency basis, revenues increased 1% and net earnings per diluted share increased 21%. Earnings per share in the quarter were negatively impacted 4 cents by changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year.

Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO, said, Our third quarter results reflect a more challenging economic environment than we had anticipated, in particular for some countries in Europe. While we are cautious on our outlook, we are confident in our ability to manage in a more uncertain environment. We believe our market leading global footprint and diversified business mix, enabled by technology, will continue to serve us well as access to human capital and workforce agility remains a strategic priority for employers globally.  

“We are anticipating the fourth quarter of 2018 diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $2.15 to $2.23, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 5 cents. This includes an estimated one-time negative impact of 27 cents related to reduced gross profit in France.” Prising stated.

Net earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were $398.4 million, or $6.03 per diluted share compared to net earnings of $329.1 million, or $4.84 per diluted share in the prior





year. The year to date period included restructuring costs which reduced earnings per share by 45 cents. The prior year to date period included restructuring costs which reduced earnings per
share by 41 cents and discrete income tax benefits which increased earnings per share by 19 cents. Revenues for the nine-month period were $16.6 billion, an increase of 8% from the prior year in reported U.S. dollars or 4% in constant currency. Earnings per share for the nine-month period were positively impacted 19 cents by changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year, or 23 cents excluding the restructuring costs.

In conjunction with its third quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on October 19, 2018 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://investor.manpowergroup.com/ in the section titled “Investor Relations.
