ManpowerGroup Reports 3rd Quarter 2022 Results

Revenues of $4.8 billion (-7% as reported, +5% constant currency (CC))
Gross profit margin of 18.3%, reflecting improved business mix and continued strength of permanent recruitment fees
Continued strong year over year margin expansion with improved EBITA and operating profit margins
Strong revenue performance of higher margin Experis and Talent Solutions brands. Performance of Manpower brand reflected stabilization of the revenue trend in France during the quarter and an ongoing sluggish automotive sector in Europe
Repurchased $85 million of common stock and repaid remaining $50 million of debt related to the U.S. Experis acquisition

 

MILWAUKEE, October 20, 2022 -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported net earnings of $2.13 per diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2022 compared to $1.77 per diluted share in the prior year period. Net earnings in the quarter were $111.3 million compared to $97.7 million a year earlier. Revenues for the third quarter were $4.8 billion, a 7% decrease from the prior year period.

The current year quarter included integration costs from the U.S. Experis acquisition. These costs reduced earnings per share by $0.08 in the third quarter. Excluding these costs, earnings per share was $2.21 per diluted share in the quarter. The prior year period included Mexico related restructuring costs and U.S. acquisition integration costs which reduced earnings per share by $0.16.

Financial results in the quarter were also impacted by the stronger U.S. dollar relative to foreign currencies compared to the prior year period, resulting in a 33 cent negative impact to earnings per share in the quarter compared to the prior year. This represented an additional 4 cent negative impact to earnings per share from foreign currency than was anticipated in our third quarter guidance. On a constant currency basis, revenues increased 5% (2% in organic constant currency) compared to the prior year period. Excluding the impact of integration costs and prior year restructuring costs, on a constant currency basis net earnings per diluted share increased 32% during the quarter.

Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO, said, “Our third quarter results reflect continued improvements in our business mix and demand for our services despite increasing global uncertainty tied

 


 

to higher inflation, energy costs and interest rates. During the quarter, our higher margin Experis and Talent Solutions brands experienced strong revenue growth while our Manpower brand achieved modest constant currency revenue growth.

Many segments of the market are growing and we continue to invest in resources to capture these growth opportunities. At the same time, we are taking the necessary cost actions in parts of the business that are experiencing slowing market demand. With that said, labor markets remain resilient and we see continued solid demand as we begin the fourth quarter.

We anticipate diluted earnings per share in the fourth quarter will be between $2.11 and $2.19, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 38 cents. Our guidance excludes expected integration costs ranging from $3 million to $5 million.”

Net earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 were $325.1 million, or net earnings of $6.10 per diluted share compared to net earnings of $271.3 million, or net earnings of $4.90 per diluted share in the prior year. The current year to date period included integration costs from the U.S. Experis acquisition and the net loss related to the sale of our Russia business in January which reduced earnings per share by 33 cents. The prior year to date period included restructuring charges relating to our Mexico business and integration costs which reduced earnings per share by 16 cents. Revenues for the nine-month period were $15.0 billion, a decrease of 2% compared to the prior year or an increase of 7% in constant currency. Earnings per share for the nine-month period were negatively impacted by 68 cents due to changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year.

In conjunction with its third quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will host a conference call live online on October 20, 2022 at 7:30 a.m. central time (8:30 a.m. eastern time). Prepared remarks for the conference call, webcast details, presentation and recordings are included within the Investor Relations section of manpowergroup.com.
