MILWAUKEE, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported that net earnings per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2015 were $1.33 compared to $1.35 in the prior year period.

Financial results in the quarter were significantly impacted by the stronger U.S. dollar relative to several foreign currencies compared to the prior year period. On a constant currency basis, revenues increased 7% and earnings per share increased 16%. Earnings per share in the quarter were negatively impacted 23 cents by changes in the foreign currencies compared to the prior year.

ManpowerGroup CEO Jonas Prising, said, "We are pleased with our strong second quarter results, capping off a good first half of 2015. The labor markets continue to improve across the globe, although at a slow and uneven pace in some countries.

"It is rewarding for our team to experience solid growth in a number of our geographies, with very strong growth in Italy, Mexico, Spain and the UK. With our market leading brands and solutions we are well placed to take advantage of profitable growth opportunities also in the second half of the year.

"We are anticipating the third quarter of 2015 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $1.50 to $1.58, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 24 cents," Prising stated.

Net earnings per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were $2.16 compared to $2.21 in 2014. Net earnings for the period were $171.4 million compared to $179.9 million in the prior year. Revenues for the six-month period were $9.4 billion, a decrease of 8 percent from the prior year or an increase of 7 percent in constant currency. Foreign currency exchange rates had an unfavorable impact of 39 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, 2015 at 7:30 a.m. CDT (8:30 a.m. EDT).
