ManpowerGroup Reports 2nd Quarter 2022 Results

  • Revenues of $5.1 billion (-4% as reported, +6% constant currency (CC))
  • Gross profit margin of 18.2%, aided by high levels of permanent recruitment activity
  • Continued strong performance of higher margin brands with significant revenue growth in Experis and Talent Solutions. Manpower performance was more modest due to supply chain disruptions in certain European markets
  • Improved profitability with expanded EBITA and operating profit margins
  • $100 million of common stock repurchased during the quarter
  • Refinanced existing €400 million Euro Note, extending maturity from September 2022 to June 2027

MILWAUKEE, July 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported net earnings of $2.29 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $2.02 per diluted share in the prior year period. Net earnings in the quarter were $122.2 million compared to $111.6 million a year earlier. Revenues for the second quarter were $5.1 billion, a 4% 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 $0.04 in the current quarter. Excluding these costs, earnings per share was $2.33 per diluted share in the quarter.

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 25 cent negative impact to earnings per share in the quarter compared to the prior year. This represented an additional 6 cent negative impact to earnings per share from foreign currency than anticipated in our second quarter guidance. On a constant currency basis, revenues increased 6% (3% in organic constant currency) compared to the prior year period. Excluding the net impact of integration costs, on a constant currency basis net earnings per diluted share increased 28% during the quarter.

Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO, said, "Our second quarter results demonstrate the disciplined execution of our strategic initiatives and the continued strength of demand for our higher margin businesses. Overall, we made solid progress during the second quarter and believe that the continued execution of our Diversification, Digitization and Innovation strategy positions us well for ongoing success. Notably, our ability to create talent at scale through our innovative MyPath and Experis Academy programs are clear differentiators in the market.

 As we start the third quarter, labor markets remain very solid and demand for talent is strong. We continue to monitor those sectors in Europe where present-day supply-chain disruptions are impacting our business, particularly in the automotive industry. At the same time, we also believe the persistent level of talent shortage represents a significant opportunity for our business. We see this evidenced by the strong ongoing demand in our permanent recruitment services, in our RPO and MSP Talent Solution offerings, in our Experis IT resourcing and solutions, and across our Manpower Specializations.

We anticipate diluted earnings per share in the third quarter will be between $2.19 and $2.27, which includes an estimated unfavorable currency impact of 29 cents. Our guidance excludes expected integration costs ranging from $4 million to $6 million."

Net earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2022 were $213.8 million, or net earnings of $3.97 per diluted share compared to net earnings of $173.6 million, or net earnings of $3.13 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 24 cents. Revenues for the six-month period were $10.2 billion, flat compared to the prior year or an increase of 8% in constant currency. Earnings per share for the six-month period were negatively impacted by 35 cents due to changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year.

In conjunction with its second quarter earnings release, ManpowerGroup will broadcast its conference call live over the Internet on July 19, 2022 at 7:30 a.m. central time (8:30 a.m. eastern time).
