TROY, Mich., Aug. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kelly (Nasdaq: KELYA) (Nasdaq: KELYB), a leading specialty talent solutions provider, today announced results for the second quarter of 2021.

Peter Quigley, president and chief executive officer, announced revenue for the second quarter of 2021 totaled $1.3 billion, a 29.0% increase compared to the corresponding quarter of 2020. Revenue improved year-over-year in the quarter reflecting increased customer demand compared to the COVID-19-impacted prior year period.

Earnings from operations in the second quarter of 2021 totaled $13.7 million, compared to earnings of $11.1 million reported in the second quarter of 2020.

Diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2021 were $0.60 compared to $1.04 per share in the second quarter of 2020. Included in the earnings per share is a non-cash gain per share, net of tax, on Kelly’s investment in Persol Holdings common stock of $0.11 in the second quarter of 2021 and $0.52 in the second quarter of 2020. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share were $0.49 in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $0.51 in the corresponding quarter of 2020.

“All five of our operating segments—Professional & Industrial (P&I); Science, Engineering & Technology (SET); Education; OCG; and International—delivered organic year-over-year revenue growth in the second quarter as the recovery gained momentum,” said Quigley. “OCG continues to exceed pre-COVID growth rates; Education exited the quarter on track with 2019 revenue; our International and SET segments delivered solid specialty growth; and our Softworld acquisition is already delivering top- and bottom-line results for the enterprise. Demand is strong in our P&I segment, though it will take longer to fully recover. We’re encouraged by the healthy sales pipelines and new wins we're seeing across all of our businesses. Our reinstatement of a dividend for the quarter reflects the progress we're making with our specialization and M&A strategies, and our confidence in the economic recovery. Kelly is well-positioned for the future and ready for what’s next.”

Kelly also reported that on August 11, its board of directors declared a dividend of $0.05 per share. The dividend is payable on September 7, 2021 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 25, 2021.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)

Management believes that the non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) information excluding the 2020 goodwill impairment charge, the 2021 and 2020 gains and losses on the investment in Persol Holdings, the 2020 gain on sale of assets and the 2020 restructuring charges, are useful to understand the Company's fiscal 2021 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.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and Adjusted EBITDA Margin (percent of total GAAP revenue) which Management believes is useful to compare operating performance compared to prior periods and uses it in conjunction with GAAP measures to assess performance. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be consistent with similarly titled measures of other companies and should be used in conjunction with GAAP measurements.

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.

(4) Restructuring charges in 2020 represent severance costs and lease terminations in preparation for the new operating model adopted in the third quarter of 2020.
