TROY, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Kelly Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: KELYA) (NASDAQ: KELYB), a leader in providing workforce solutions, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012.

Carl T. Camden, President and Chief Executive Officer, announced revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $1.4 billion, a 2% decrease compared to the corresponding quarter of 2011. Revenue for the full year totaled $5.5 billion, a 2% decrease compared to the prior year.

Earnings from operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $9.8 million, compared to $12.7 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2011. Included in the results from operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 are asset impairment charges of $3.1 million and restructuring charges of $1.3 million. Excluding these charges, earnings from operations were $14.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $12.7 million in 2011.

Earnings from operations for the full year of 2012 totaled $72.3 million compared to $57.7 million in 2011. Included in the results from operations for 2012 are asset impairment charges of $3.1 million and a restructuring benefit of $900 thousand. Included in the results from operations for 2011 are restructuring charges of $2.8 million. Excluding these items from both years, earnings from operations were $74.5 million in 2012 compared to $60.5 million in 2011.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $0.23 compared to $0.64 per share in the fourth quarter of 2011. Included in diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 are asset impairment charges of $0.05 per share, restructuring charges of $0.02 per share and a loss on the North Asia joint venture of $0.03 per share. Excluding these charges, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $0.33 per share compared to $0.64 in 2011.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full year of 2012 were $1.31 compared to $1.72 per share in 2011.

Commenting on the fourth quarter and full year results, Camden stated, "Given the challenging fourth quarter and anemic economic growth throughout the year, we're pleased with our performance. Our strategy is clearly yielding results. We kept expenses under control, grew our higher-margin professional and technical business, and delivered four straight quarters of positive earnings in our outsourcing and consulting group."

Camden expects persistent headwinds and mediocre job growth in the months ahead, but feels Kelly is well-positioned. "We're operating more efficiently, and we're investing in flexible solutions that meet the fastest-growing demands in the market. Skilled workers will continue to be in short supply in 2013, and companies will continue to look for ways to better manage their workforce. Kelly's professional and technical staffing capabilities, along with our expertise in talent supply chain management, provide the solution."

                                 (UNAUDITED)

Management believes that the non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting
Principles) information excluding the restructuring charges, asset
impairment charges and loss on equity investment is useful to understand the
Company's fiscal 2012 financial performance and increases comparability.
Specifically, Management believes that excluding these items allows for a
more meaningful comparison of current period operating performance with the
operating results of prior periods. 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) In 2012, restructuring charges relate to severance and lease termination
costs for EMEA Commercial branches which are in the process of closing,
along with revisions of the estimated lease termination costs for EMEA
Commercial branches that closed in prior years. In 2011, restructuring costs
relate primarily to revisions of the estimated lease termination costs for
EMEA Commercial branches that closed in prior years.

(2) Asset impairment charges relate to the write-off of previously
capitalized costs associated with the PeopleSoft billing system.

(3) Loss on equity investment represents the difference between the fair
value and book value of the North Asia entities contributed by the Company
to the investment in TS Kelly Workforce Solutions.
