Looking ahead, Camden sees 2014 as a year of significant investment in the Company's long-term growth. "The market is demanding access to specialized talent and more holistic workforce solutions, and we're going to invest heavily in those areas. We will hire niche recruiters, adapt our operating models, and build our talent supply chain capabilities with speed and intensity in 2014. We are confident these investments are right for our business, right for our customers and will support long-term growth for Kelly."

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(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 2013 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.

In 2013, restructuring charges primarily relate to severance costs incurred from the Company's decision to exit the OCG executive search business operating in Germany, along with adjustments to prior restructuring costs, primarily in France and Italy. In 2012, restructuring charges relate to severance and lease termination costs for EMEA Commercial branches which were in the process of closing, along with revisions of the estimated lease termination costs for EMEA Commercial branches that closed in prior years.

In 2013, asset impairment charges represent the write-off of the carrying value of long-lived assets related to the decision to exit the executive search business operating in Germany. In 2012, asset impairment charges relate to the write-off of previously capitalized costs associated with the PeopleSoft billing system.

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.
