Robert Half reports 2nd quarter financial results
"Robert Half's growth in the second quarter was broad-based and reflective of improving labor markets and higher global demand for our professional staffing services," said Harold M. Messmer, Jr., chairman and CEO of Robert Half. "Year-over-year revenue growth rates accelerated nicely during the quarter, both in the United States and in our international operations. The company's Protiviti subsidiary also continued to post very strong operating results."
Messmer added, "The highest sequential and year-over-year revenue growth rates were reported by our permanent placement operations and Protiviti. This was Robert Half's 17th consecutive quarter of double-digit net income and earnings-per-share growth on a year-over-year basis. Return on equity, on an unlevered basis, was 31 percent for the quarter."
