KELLY SERVICES® REPORTS
FOURTH QUARTER EARNINGS
AND SOLID 2017 RESULTS

Financial Highlights
Q4 revenue up 9.0%, up 7.3% in constant currency
Q4 operating earnings of $28.4 million, up 43%
Q4 earnings per share of $0.45, or $0.80 on an adjusted basis compared to $0.51, a 57% increase year-over-year on an adjusted basis
Full-year 2017 operating earnings up 32% to $83 million
    
TROY, MI (February 1, 2018) -- Kelly Services (Nasdaq: KELYA) (Nasdaq: KELYB), a global leader in providing workforce solutions, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2017.

George S. Corona, President and Chief Executive Officer, announced revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 totaled $1.4 billion, a 9.0% increase, or 7.3% in constant currency, compared to the corresponding quarter of 2016. Revenue for the full year totaled $5.4 billion, a 1.9% increase, or 1.3% in constant currency, compared to the prior year. For the full year, revenue comparisons are unfavorably impacted by the transfer of the APAC staffing operations to the PersolKelly Asia Pacific JV (the "JV") in the third quarter of 2016 after which the JV is accounted for as an equity method investment.
    
Earnings from operations for the fourth quarter of 2017 totaled $28.4 million, compared to $19.8 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2016. Earnings from operations for the full year totaled $83.3 million compared to $63.2 million in 2016.

Diluted earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2017 were $0.45 compared to $0.51 per share in the fourth quarter of 2016. Earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2017 were unfavorably impacted by $0.35 due to a non-cash, income tax charge resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which was enacted in late 2017.

Diluted earnings per share for the full year of 2017 were $1.81 compared to $3.08 per share in 2016. Full year earnings per share for 2017 were unfavorably impacted by the $0.35 non-cash, tax charge and 2016 full year earnings per share were favorably impacted by $1.62 related to the after-tax gain on APAC JV transaction. The impact of these adjustments are more fully described in our reconciliation of non-GAAP measures included on page 11.

Reflecting on the results, Corona stated, “Our fourth quarter performance reinforces that 2017 was a successful year of focus and acceleration for Kelly. We created and carried strong momentum through all four quarters, grew the top line, improved our GP and conversion rate, and increased our earnings from operations by 32% over last year—all while accelerating investments that position Kelly for long-term growth.”
    
In conjunction with its fourth quarter earnings release, Kelly Services has published a financial presentation on the Investor Relations page of our public website and will host a conference call at 9:00 a.m. (ET) on February 1 to review the results and answer questions.
