Adecco Group Reports Second-Quarter Results

Adecco Group News Release (08/11/15)

Adecco Group reported revenues of €5.6 billion in the second quarter of 2015, up 12% (4% in constant currency) from €5 billion in the second quarter of 2014. Net income totaled €177 million, up 22% from €145 million in the year-ago quarter.

In North America, revenues were €1.2 billion, an increase of 2%. General staffing accounts were approximately half of revenues and grew by 4%. In the industrial staffing segment, revenue growth remained strong at 11%, while in the office staffing segment, revenues declined by 4%. In professional staffing, revenues were flat; the company saw growth of 10% in medical and science, 5% in finance and legal, and 3% in information technology; engineering and technical declined by 9%. Permanent placement revenues in North America were up 12%. Management noted that a slowdown in Canada, particularly in oil and gas and in defense, had a negative effect on North America revenues across most segments.

“We continue to be committed to achieving our EBITA margin target of above 5.5% in 2015,” said incoming Adecco Group chief executive officer Alain Dehaze in a call with investors. “Given the trends in our business and the current economic outlook, and helped by an easier comparison base, we continue to expect such a pickup.”
