PR Newswire
MILWAUKEE
Oct 20, 2010

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Manpower Inc. (NYSE: MAN) today reported that earnings per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2010 were 62 cents compared to a loss of 67 cents in the prior year period. Revenues for the third quarter were $5.0 billion, an increase of 19 percent from the year earlier period, or an increase of 24 percent in constant currency.

Third quarter results were unfavorably impacted by 3 cents per diluted share as foreign currencies were relatively weaker compared to the third quarter of 2009.

Third quarter 2009 results include a loss on the sale of an equity investment and a goodwill impairment charge totaling $71.3 million ($66.3 million after tax) or 84 cents per diluted share. Also included in third quarter 2009 results is a $7.5 million ($4.6 million after tax) or 6 cents per diluted share charge related to the repayment of our revolver borrowings and the extinguishment of an interest rate swap agreement. Excluding these charges, third quarter 2009 net earnings would have been $18.1 million, or 23 cents per diluted share.

Jeffrey A. Joerres, Manpower Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our team around the world did an outstanding job in the third quarter. We were able to sustain our growth from the second quarter and substantially improve our operating margin. We continue to benefit from our office network and strong portfolio of offerings.

"The U.S., Germany and the U.K. did particularly well, as did the emerging markets. The trends continue to be strong for our industry, and we continue to hear and experience encouraging signs from our clients.

"We are anticipating the fourth quarter of 2010 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $.54 to $.62, which includes an estimated negative currency impact of 2 cents. This is before expected reorganization charges related to Right Management and Jefferson Wells of 15 to 20 cents per share," Joerres stated.

Earnings per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 were $1.06 compared to a loss of 49 cents per diluted share in 2009. Net earnings were $86.8 million compared to a loss of $38.3 million in the prior year. Revenues for the nine-month period were $13.7 billion, an increase of 18 percent from the prior year. Foreign currency exchange rates had an unfavorable impact of 1 cent for the nine-month period.

Earnings per diluted share for the nine month period in 2009 include the loss on the sale of the equity investment and goodwill impairment charge totaling 84 cents, the charge of 6 cents related to the repayment of our revolver borrowings and extinguishment of an interest rate swap, and the first and second quarter reorganization charges totaling 17 cents.

In conjunction with its third quarter earnings release, Manpower will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on October 20, 2010 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.manpower.com.
