Kelly Services(R) Reports 1st Quarter Results

TROY, MI -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Kelly Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: KELYA) (NASDAQ: KELYB), a leader in providing workforce solutions, today announced results for the first quarter of 2014.

Carl T. Camden, President and Chief Executive Officer, announced revenue for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $1.3 billion, a 1% increase compared to the corresponding quarter of 2013.

Earnings from operations for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $6.3 million, compared to $7.1 million reported for the first quarter of 2013.

Diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of 2014 were $0.07 compared to $0.34 per share in the first quarter of 2013.

"We're pleased with our first quarter performance, which is better than expectations and confirms our strategic direction," stated Camden. "It's clear we are making progress on adjusting our operating models and focusing on higher-margin growth -- and we're delivering a profit while investing aggressively in Kelly's long-term success."

Camden noted that although confidence is returning among many U.S. companies, that isn't necessarily translating into strong job growth. "Rather than waiting for the job market to change significantly in 2014, Kelly is taking the necessary steps to secure our position in the specialty staffing and outsourcing and consulting markets. In particular, we continue to see strong demand and revenue growth in the talent supply chain management approach delivered through our OCG segment."

Kelly also reported that on May 6, 2014, its board of directors declared a dividend of $0.05 per share. The dividend is payable June 3, 2014 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 19, 2014.
