Manpower omzet Q1 2013: -/- 6,4%


De omzet van Manpower in Q1 2013 was 4.768,9 miljoen dollar. Dit is een daling van 6,4 procent.

Dat blijkt uit cijfers die ManpowerGroup vrijdag bekend heeft gemaakt.

De brutowinst kwam uit op 790 miljoen dollar. Dit is 6,8 % minder dan in het eerste kwartaal van 2012. De nettowinst is met 40,6 % gedaald tot 23,9 miljoen dollar. De afname was onder meer te wijten aan een herstructureringslast.

Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO, said, “The first quarter performance was largely attributed to slightly stronger than anticipated revenues and tax credits. Additionally, our recalibration of our cost base is advancing ahead of schedule. Those efforts, which are focused on simplifying our business, were initially rolled out in the fourth quarter of 2012 and continued into the first quarter, resulting in the restructuring charge in the quarter. Our team has done an outstanding job dealing with the high levels of uncertainty in Europe and has continued to address client and prospect needs with our unique suite of solutions.
“We anticipate second quarter earnings per share will range between 84 cents to 92 cents before restructuring charges. We do not expect changes in currency rates to have a significant impact in the quarter based on current exchange rates.”
