ManpowerGroup Reports 2nd Quarter 2019 Results


MILWAUKEE, July 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported net earnings of $2.11 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $2.17 per diluted share in the prior year period.  Net earnings in the quarter were $127.3 million compared to $143.4 million a year earlier.  Revenues for the second quarter were $5.4 billion, a 5% decline from the prior year period. 

The current year quarter included special items consisting of a non-cash accounting gain of $80 million related to the purchase of our remaining interest in the Switzerland Manpower business, which increased earnings per share by $1.32, and a goodwill impairment charge and related tax and other costs of $76 million, which decreased earnings per share by $1.26.

Financial results in the quarter were also impacted by the stronger U.S. dollar relative to foreign currencies compared to the prior year period. On a constant currency basis, revenues were flat. On a constant currency basis, net earnings per diluted share increased 1% and decreased 8%, excluding the impact of the special items and restructuring charges in the prior year. Earnings per share in the quarter were negatively impacted 8 cents by changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year, or 11 cents excluding the special items. 

Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO, said, "We delivered solid results in the second quarter, reflecting the significant variations we are seeing across global labor markets.  We are making operational and strategic progress and continue to invest in technology for every stage of the HR value chain as this remains core to everything we do today and in the future.  As skills shortages continue to be felt by many employers, demand for our extensive portfolio of workforce solutions and services across our global footprint continues to provide us with opportunities for profitable growth in many markets."

"We anticipate diluted earnings per share in the third quarter will be between $1.88 and $1.96, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 4 cents and an estimated unfavorable impact from the expected French corporate tax rate change for 2019 of 5 cents."

On July 10, 2019, our joint venture in Greater China, ManpowerGroup Greater China Limited, successfully completed its initial public offering on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange which will result in the deconsolidation of the business. During the quarter we recorded $60 million of goodwill impairment and a discrete tax charge of $10 million related to our Germany business and a charge of $6 million for goodwill impairment and additional costs related to our New Zealand business.

Net earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were $180.8 million, or $2.98 per diluted share compared to net earnings of $240.4 million, or $3.62 per diluted share in the prior year. The year to date period included special items and restructuring costs which reduced earnings per share by 46 cents. The prior year-to-date period included restructuring costs which reduced earnings per share by 45 cents. Revenues for the six-month period were $10.4 billion, a decrease of 7% from the prior year or a decrease of 1% in constant currency. Earnings per share for the six-month period were negatively impacted 15 cents by changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year, or 23 cents excluding the special items and restructuring costs. 

In conjunction with its second quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on July 19, 2019 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."
