ManpowerGroup reports Q3 revenue has increased by 4%

There were no restructuring charges in the current year quarter. Net earnings in the third quarter were not materially impacted by changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year period.

Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup CEO, said, "Our third quarter results were strong, with solid revenue and profit growth in the majority of our operations and brands.  While the economic recovery has recently become more choppy in some markets, we are still seeing growth opportunities and I am confident we are well positioned to deliver unique value to our clients in these uncertain times.

"We are anticipating the fourth quarter of 2014 diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $1.39 to $1.47, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 8 cents," Prising stated.

Earnings per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $3.82 compared to $2.36 per diluted share in 2013. Net earnings were $310.4 million compared to $186.8 million in the prior year. Revenues for the nine-month period were $15.6 billion, an increase of 4 percent from the prior year in reported U.S. dollars and in constant currency. Included in the prior year results for the nine month period are restructuring costs of 58 cents per diluted share. Foreign currency exchange rates had a favorable impact of 3 cents per share for the nine month period in 2014.
