TROY, Mich., Nov. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kelly (Nasdaq: KELYA) (Nasdaq: KELYB), a leading specialty talent solutions provider, today announced results for the third quarter of 2020.

Peter Quigley, president and chief executive officer, announced revenue for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $1.0 billion, an 18.1% decline compared to the corresponding quarter of 2019.  Revenues declined year-over-year in the quarter as the continuing effects of the COVID-19 crisis impacted customer demand.

Losses from operations for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $2.4 million, compared to earnings of $17.1 million reported for the third quarter of 2019. The 2020 third quarter results include a non-cash charge to allowance for doubtful accounts related to a customer dispute and an adjustment to restructuring charges. The third quarter of 2019 results included an adjustment to restructuring charges. On an adjusted basis, earnings from operations were $7.0 million compared to $17.0 million in the corresponding quarter of 2019.

Diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2020 were $0.42 compared to a loss per share of $0.27 in the third quarter of 2019. Included in the earnings per share in the third quarter of 2020 is a non-cash gain, net of tax, on Kelly’s investment in Persol Holdings common stock of $0.29, partially offset by a loss of $0.17 related to the customer dispute charge, net of tax. Included in the loss per share in the third quarter of 2019 is $0.70 from a non-cash loss per share on Kelly’s investment in Persol Holdings common stock, net of tax. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share were $0.29 for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $0.43 for the corresponding quarter of 2019.

“As a gradual recovery from the pandemic continued into the third quarter, revenue trends in all of Kelly’s segments showed some sequential improvement,” stated Quigley. “Our higher-margin specialties, such as outsourcing & consulting, science, and virtual call center, proved to be particularly resilient. Kelly has also made significant progress on reinventing ourselves in a tumultuous year. We executed on our plan to adopt a new operating model, and we reported third quarter financial results by our five specialty business segments: Science, Engineering & Technology; Education; Professional & Industrial; OCG; and International. This is an important step forward in redefining Kelly as a specialty talent provider in skill sets modern organizations need to grow and thrive. While we continue to carefully manage expenses and track the trajectory of the crisis, we expect our disciplined specialty focus to deliver profitable growth in a post-pandemic business environment. I’m proud of our teams for the agility, creativity, and character they’ve shown in response to this crisis, and I’m encouraged by the early traction we’re seeing as a result of their efforts.”

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)

Management believes that the non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) information excluding the 2020 goodwill impairment charge, the 2020 and 2019 gains and losses on the investment in Persol Holdings, the 2020 and 2019 gains on sale of assets, the 2020 customer dispute, and the 2020 and 2019 restructuring charges, are useful to understand the Company's fiscal 2020 financial performance and increases comparability.  Specifically, Management believes that removing the impact of these items allows for a meaningful comparison of current period operating performance with the operating results of prior periods.  Management also believes that such measures are used by those analyzing performance of companies in the staffing industry to compare current performance to prior periods and to assess future performance.

These non-GAAP measures may have limitations as analytical tools because they exclude items which can have a material impact on cash flow and earnings per share.  As a result, Management considers these measures, along with reported results, when it reviews and evaluates the Company's financial performance.  Management believes that these measures provide greater transparency to investors and provide insight into how Management is evaluating the Company's financial performance.  Non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(1)  The goodwill impairment charge is the result of an interim impairment test the Company performed during the first quarter of 2020, due to a triggering event caused by a decline in the Company's common stock price.

(2)  The gains and losses on the investment in Persol Holdings represent the change in fair value of the investment during the period presented and the related tax expense and benefit.

(3)  Gain on sale of assets in 2020 primarily represents the excess of the proceeds over the cost of the headquarters properties sold during the first quarter of 2020.  Gain on sale of assets in 2019 primarily represents the excess of the proceeds over the cost of an unused parcel of land located near the Company headquarters sold during the second quarter of 2019.

(4)  Customer dispute represents a non-cash charge in Mexico to increase the reserve against a long-term receivable from a former customer based on an updated probability of loss assessment.

(5)  Restructuring charges in 2020 represent severance costs and lease terminations in preparation for the new operating model adopted in the third quarter of 2020.  Restructuring charges in 2019 represent severance costs primarily related to U.S. branch-based staffing operations.
