ManpowerGroup Reports 1st Quarter 2021 Results

MILWAUKEE, April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today reported net earnings of $1.11 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to $0.03 per diluted share in the prior year period.  Net earnings in the quarter were $62.0 million compared to $1.7 million a year earlier.  Revenues for the first quarter were $4.9 billion, a 7% increase from the prior year period. 

Financial results in the quarter were also impacted by the weaker U.S. dollar relative to foreign currencies compared to the prior year period. Earnings per share in the quarter were positively impacted by 6 cents due to changes in foreign currencies compared to the prior year.  On a constant currency basis, revenues increased 1% compared to the prior year period. Excluding the prior year impacts of restructuring costs and a pension settlement charge, on a constant currency basis, net earnings per diluted share increased 28% during the quarter.

Days Sales Outstanding improved by 3.7 days year over year reflecting our continued focus on collections and working capital efficiency. 

Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO, said, "Our first quarter results reflect a continuation of the global recovery coupled with a strong execution of our strategic initiatives.  Despite increased restrictions in many key markets, we saw improving momentum for all of our brands. The combination of technology investments and our people-first approach is allowing us to confidently manage global uncertainty, deliver locally and collaborate remotely. 

We are pleased with the progress made during the first quarter of 2021 and remain confident that our Diversification, Digitization and Innovation initiatives are positioning ManpowerGroup for greater profitable growth in the future.

We anticipate diluted earnings per share in the second quarter will be between $1.36 and $1.44, which includes an estimated favorable currency impact of 10 cents."
