NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)
1 . Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Kelly Services, Inc. (the “Company,” “Kelly,” “we” or “us”) have been prepared in accordance with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and do not include all the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. All adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments, have been made which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair statement of the results of the interim periods. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results of operations for a full year. The unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended January 2, 2011, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 17, 2011 (the 2010 consolidated financial statements).
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. Included in SG&A expenses in the second quarter of 2011 is a $0.5 million benefit for an insurance recovery which related to the first quarter of 2011. The effect of this out-of-period adjustment is not material to the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
2. Fair Value Measurements
Trade accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, accrued payroll and related taxes and short-term borrowings approximate their fair values due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities.
Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
The following tables present assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of July 3, 2011 and January 2, 2011 on the consolidated balance sheet by fair value hierarchy level, as described below.

2. Fair Value Measurements (continued)
Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis (continued)
Level 1 measurements consist of unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 measurements include quoted prices in markets that are not active or model inputs that are observable either directly or indirectly for substantially the full term of the asset or liability. Level 3 measurements include significant unobservable inputs.
Money market funds as of July 3, 2011 represent investments in money market accounts, all of which is restricted cash that is included in prepaid expenses and other current assets on the consolidated balance sheet. Money market funds as of January 2, 2011 represent investments in money market accounts, of which $2.9 million is included in cash and equivalents and $1.2 million of restricted cash is included in prepaid expenses and other current assets on the consolidated balance sheet. The valuations were based on quoted market prices of those accounts as of the respective period end.
Available-for-sale investment represents the Company’s investment in Temp Holdings Co., Ltd. (“Temp Holdings”), a leading integrated human resources company in Japan, and is included in other assets on the consolidated balance sheet. The valuation is based on the quoted market price of Temp Holdings stock on the Tokyo Stock Exchange as of the period end. The unrealized gain of $0.1 million for the 13 weeks ended July 3, 2011 and unrealized loss for the 13 weeks ended July 4, 2010, which was insignificant, was recorded in other comprehensive income, a component of stockholders’ equity. The unrealized loss of $0.5 million for the 26 weeks ended July 3, 2011 and unrealized gain of $1.7 million for the 26 weeks ended July 4, 2010 was recorded in other comprehensive income.
During the second quarter of 2010, the Company entered into two forward foreign currency exchange contracts to offset the variability in exchange rates on its yen-denominated debt. One contract matured on May 13, 2011 and the other contract matured November 2010. During the first quarter of 2011, the yen-denominated debt was paid in full. As a result, the Company entered into an additional forward foreign currency exchange contract during the first quarter of 2011 to offset the remaining open contract that was purchased during 2010.
Prior to maturity, these contracts, which were included in prepaid expenses and other current assets on the consolidated balance sheet, were valued using market exchange rates and were not designated as hedging instruments. Accordingly, gains and losses resulting from recording the foreign exchange contracts at fair value were reported in other expense, net on the consolidated statement of earnings, and amounted to a minor loss for the 13 and 26 weeks ended July 3, 2011 and a gain of $0.5 million for the 13 and 26 weeks ended July 4, 2010.
The two aforementioned forward currency exchange contracts, one to buy Japanese yen with a U.S. dollar equivalent of $6.1 million and one to sell Japanese yen with a U.S. dollar equivalent of $6.8 million, matured on May 13, 2011. At July 3, 2011, the Company had no open forward foreign currency exchange contracts. At January 2, 2011, the Company had one open forward foreign currency exchange contract with an expiration date of less than one year to buy foreign currencies with a U.S. dollar equivalent of $6.1 million.

3. Restructuring
Restructuring costs incurred in the first quarter and first six months of 2010 totaled $4.4 million, and primarily related to severance and lease termination costs for branches in the EMEA Commercial and APAC Commercial segments that were in the process of closure at the end of 2009, and severance costs related to the corporate headquarters. Restructuring costs incurred in the second quarter and first six months of 2011 amounted to a credit of $0.6 million and expense of $3.4 million, respectively, and primarily relate to revisions of the estimated lease termination costs for EMEA Commercial branches that closed in prior years. These costs were reported as a component of SG&A expenses. Total costs incurred since July 2008 for our restructuring efforts amounted to $47.0 million.
A summary of the balance sheet accrual related to the global restructuring costs follows (in millions of dollars):
         
Balance at beginning of year
  $ 4.7  
 
       
Amounts charged (credited) to operations
    4.0  
Reductions for cash payments
    (1.1 )
 
     
 
       
Balance at April 3, 2011
    7.6  
 
       
Amounts charged (credited) to operations
    (0.6 )
Reductions for cash payments
    (0.4 )
 
     
 
       
Balance at July 3, 2011
  $ 6.6  
 
     
The remaining balance of $6.6 million as of July 3, 2011 represents primarily future lease payments and is expected to be paid by 2018. On a quarterly basis, the Company reassesses the accrual associated with restructuring costs and adjusts it as necessary.
4. Debt
On March 31, 2011, the Company entered into an agreement with its lenders to amend and restate its existing $90 million, three-year revolving credit facility (the “Facility”). The amendment increased the capacity of the Facility to $150 million, and extended the term of the Facility to March 31, 2016 from September 28, 2012. The Facility allows for borrowings in various currencies and is used to fund working capital, acquisitions, and general corporate needs.
The interest rate applicable to borrowings under the Facility at July 3, 2011 was 200 basis points over the London InterBank Offering Rate (“LIBOR”) in addition to a facility fee of 25 basis points. LIBOR rates vary by currency. The Company may also borrow using rates based on the Prime Rate; these loans have shorter notice periods and interest periods. At July 3, 2011, the prime-rate based loans were available to the Company at the Prime Rate plus 100 basis points and a facility fee of 25 basis points.

4. Debt (continued)
At July 3, 2011, borrowings under the Facility were $15.0 million, with an interest rate of 2.44%, and the Facility had a remaining capacity of $135.0 million. In connection with the refinancing, certain of the Facility’s financial covenants and restrictions were amended and are described below, all of which were met at July 3, 2011:
   
The Company must not allow its ratio of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and certain cash and non-cash charges that are non-recurring in nature (“EBITDA”) to interest expense (“Interest Coverage Ratio”) for the last twelve months to be below 4.0 to 1.0 as of the end of any fiscal quarter ending prior to the fourth quarter of 2012 and 5.0 to 1.0 thereafter.
 
   
The Company must keep its ratio of total indebtedness to the sum of net worth and total indebtedness below 0.4 to 1.0 at all times.
 
   
Dividends, stock buybacks and similar transactions are limited based on the Interest Coverage Ratio. When the Interest Coverage Ratio is below 5.0 to 1.0, the Company may pay up to $20 million in aggregate over the four most recent fiscal quarters including the current quarter; when the Interest Coverage Ratio is above 5.0 to 1.0, the Company may pay up to $30 million in aggregate over the four most recent fiscal quarters including the current quarter.
 
   
The Company must adhere to other operating restrictions relating to the conduct of business, such as certain limitations on asset sales and the type and scope of investments.
At January 2, 2011, there were no borrowings under the Facility.
On March 31, 2011, the Company and Kelly Receivables Funding, LLC, a wholly owned bankruptcy remote special purpose subsidiary of the Company (the “Receivables Entity”), amended the Receivables Purchase Agreement related to the $100 million securitization facility (“Securitization Facility”). The amendment (i) extended the term of the Securitization Facility from 364 days to three years, (ii) reduced borrowing costs, and (iii) increased the capacity from $100 to $150 million. The Receivables Purchase Agreement will terminate December 4, 2014, unless terminated earlier pursuant to its terms.
Under the Securitization Facility, the Company will sell certain trade receivables and related rights (“Receivables”), on a revolving basis, to the Receivables Entity. The Receivables Entity may from time to time sell an undivided variable percentage ownership interest in the Receivables. The Securitization Facility also allows for the issuance of standby letters of credit (“SBLC”). The Securitization Facility contains a cross-default clause that could result in termination if defaults occur under our other loan agreements. The Securitization Facility also contains certain restrictions based on the performance of the Receivables.
As of July 3, 2011, the Securitization Facility carried $74.0 million of short-term borrowings at a rate of 1.39% and $50.6 million of SBLCs related to workers’ compensation. The interest rate applicable to borrowings under the Securitization Facility at July 3, 2011 was 55 basis points over the cost of commercial paper, in addition to a facility fee of 60 basis points. The cost of borrowings on this facility varies on a daily basis, along with the cost of commercial paper. The remaining capacity on the Facility was $25.4 million at July 3, 2011. As of January 2, 2011, the Securitization Facility carried $17.0 million of short-term borrowings at a rate of 1.57%, SBLCs related to workers’ compensation of $45.7 million and remaining capacity of $37.3 million.

4. Debt (continued)
The Receivables Entity’s sole business consists of the purchase or acceptance through capital contributions of trade accounts receivable and related rights from the Company. As described above, the Receivables Entity may retransfer these receivables or grant a security interest in those receivables under the terms and conditions of the Receivables Purchase Agreement. The Receivables Entity is a separate legal entity with its own creditors who would be entitled, if it were ever liquidated, to be satisfied out of its assets prior to any assets or value in the Receivables Entity becoming available to its equity holders. The assets of the Receivables Entity are not available to pay creditors of the Company or any of its other subsidiaries. The assets and liabilities of the Receivables Entity are included in the consolidated financial statements of the Company.
The Company had a three-year syndicated term loan facility comprised of 9 million euros and 5 million U.K. pounds, and a five-year, 6 billion yen-denominated loan agreement, all of which had a maturity date of October 3, 2011. On March 22, 2011, the Company fully paid the euro and U.K. pound loans. On March 24, 2011, the Company also fully paid the yen loan using borrowings from the revolving credit facility and Securitization Facility.
As of January 2, 2011, the U.S. dollar amount outstanding on the euro and U.K. pound facility, which fluctuated based on foreign exchange rates, totaled approximately $19.7 million, all of which was classified as current, and carried an interest rate which ranged from 4.24% to 4.44%. As of January 2, 2011, the U.S. dollar amount outstanding on the yen-denominated loan balance, which also fluctuated based on foreign exchange rates, totaled approximately $42.0 million, all of which was classified as current, and carried an interest rate of 3.7%.

8. Contingencies
The Company is the subject of two pending class action lawsuits. The two lawsuits, Fuller v. Kelly Services, Inc. and Kelly Home Care Services, Inc., pending in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles, and Sullivan v. Kelly Services, Inc., pending in the U.S. District Court Southern District of California, both involve claims for monetary damages by current and former temporary employees working in the State of California.
The Fuller matter involves claims relating to alleged misclassification of personal attendants as exempt and not entitled to overtime compensation under state law and alleged technical violations of a state law governing the content of employee pay stubs. The Sullivan matter relates to claims by temporary workers for compensation while interviewing for assignments. Tentative settlements have been reached in both matters and are awaiting final court approval. Accordingly, a $1.2 million after-tax charge related to the Fuller matter was recognized in discontinued operations during the second quarter of 2011 .
The Company is continuously engaged in litigation arising in the ordinary course of its business, typically matters alleging employment discrimination, alleging wage and hour violations or enforcing the restrictive covenants in the Company’s employment agreements. While there is no expectation that any of these matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows, litigation is always subject to inherent uncertainty and the Company is not able to reasonably predict if any matter will be resolved in a manner that is materially adverse to the Company.

9. Segment Disclosures
The Company’s segments are based on the organizational structure for which financial results are regularly evaluated by the Company’s chief operating decision maker to determine resource allocation and assess performance. The Company’s seven reporting segments are: (1) Americas Commercial, (2) Americas Professional and Technical (“Americas PT”), (3) Europe, Middle East and Africa Commercial (“EMEA Commercial”), (4) Europe, Middle East and Africa Professional and Technical (“EMEA PT”), (5) Asia Pacific Commercial (“APAC Commercial”), (6) Asia Pacific Professional and Technical (“APAC PT”) and (7) Outsourcing and Consulting Group (“OCG”).
The Commercial business segments within the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions represent traditional office services, contact-center staffing, marketing, electronic assembly, light industrial and substitute teachers. The PT segments encompass a wide range of highly skilled temporary employees, including scientists, financial professionals, attorneys, engineers, IT specialists and healthcare workers. OCG includes recruitment process outsourcing (“RPO”), contingent workforce outsourcing (“CWO”), business process outsourcing (“BPO”), payroll process outsourcing (“PPO”), executive placement and career transition/outplacement services. Corporate expenses that directly support the operating units have been allocated to the seven segments based on a work effort, volume or, in the absence of a readily available measurement process, proportionately based on revenue from services.
The following tables present information about the reported revenue from services and earnings from operations of the Company for the 13 and 26 weeks ended July 3, 2011 and July 4, 2010. Asset information by reportable segment is not presented, since the Company does not produce such information internally, nor does it use such data to manage its business.

10. New Accounting Pronouncement
In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board amended its guidance on the presentation of comprehensive income to increase the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income. The new guidance requires that all components of comprehensive income in stockholders’ equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The new guidance will be effective for us as of the beginning of fiscal 2012 and its adoption will not have any impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
Executive Overview
U.S. temporary employment experienced year-over-year growth of 9% in the second quarter of 2011 and nearly 11% for the first six months of the year. Although improving over the prior year, in recent months our industry has seen a moderate deceleration in job creation. This weakness was also present in the broader labor market during the second quarter, with a more pronounced deceleration in job creation. However, the increased demand for flexible labor, coupled with economic uncertainty, continues to favor the staffing industry.
For Kelly, second quarter results reflect continued year-over-year improvement:
   
We achieved revenue growth year-over-year in all business segments.
 
   
Our gross profit rate improved slightly at 16.0% for the quarter compared to the second quarter of 2010.
 
   
Diluted earnings per share totaled $0.53, compared to $0.11 last year.
During the last several years, we refined our strategic focus by adjusting our geographic footprint, streamlining our operations and reducing expenses through restructuring actions. We are committed to executing this business strategy. Recognizing that the pace of economic growth and demand for labor will impact our efforts, we remain focused on growing higher-margin PT staffing, expanding fee-based business and delivering customer-focused workforce solutions.

Compared to the second quarter of 2010, the gross profit rate improved slightly. The growth in fee-based income offset a small decline in the temporary gross profit rate due to the unfavorable impact related to the expiration of the HIRE Act. The Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (“HIRE”) Act allowed employers to receive a payroll tax benefit for hiring and retaining previously unemployed individuals.
Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased year over year due primarily to hiring of full-time employees in prior periods and increased incentive compensation. Restructuring costs in the second quarter of 2011 primarily relate to revisions of the estimated lease termination costs for EMEA Commercial branches that closed in prior years.
Income tax expense for the second quarter of 2011 was $0.6 million, compared to $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2010. The low tax rate in 2011 is a direct result of significant employment-related tax credits. The 2011 expense includes the favorable impact of the HIRE Act retention credit and improvements in our work opportunity credit estimates. The HIRE Act retention credit is available only in 2011, and is in addition to the HIRE Act payroll tax benefits recognized in cost of services in 2010.
Diluted earnings from continuing operations per share for the second quarter of 2011 were $0.53, as compared to $0.11 for the second quarter of 2010.
Discontinued operations in the second quarter of 2011 represents costs of litigation, net of tax, retained from the 2007 sale of the Kelly Home Care business unit.

The change in Americas PT revenue from services reflected an increase in hours worked of 9%, combined with an increase in average bill rates of 3% on a constant currency basis. Americas PT revenue represented 18% of total Company revenue in the second quarter of both 2011 and 2010.
The Americas PT gross profit rate decreased due to the unfavorable impact related to the expiration of the HIRE Act, as well as changes in service and customer mix, partially offset by increased fee-based income. Fee-based income has a significant impact on gross profit rates. There are very low direct costs of services associated with fee-based income. Therefore, increases or decreases in fee-based income can have a disproportionate impact on gross profit rates.
The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily due to hiring of recruiters, higher salaries and performance-based compensation in support of our PT expansion efforts.

Revenue from services in the OCG segment for the second quarter of 2011 increased in the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions, due primarily to growth in our BPO, RPO and CWO practices. OCG revenue represented 5% of total Company revenue in the second quarter of both 2011 and 2010.
The OCG gross profit rate increased primarily due to increased volume mix in the RPO and CWO practice areas, as well as increases in gross profit rates in the RPO practice area. Additionally, prior year’s gross profit rate was negatively impacted by implementation costs associated with our BPO units. The increase in SG&A expenses is primarily the result of support costs associated with new customer programs, as well as higher volumes on existing programs, in our RPO and CWO practice areas.

The year-over-year change in revenue for the first six months of 2011 resulted primarily from a 13% increase in hours worked. On a constant currency basis, revenue for the first six months increased in all business segments.
Compared to the first six months of 2010, the gross profit rate improved slightly. SG&A expenses increased year over year due primarily to hiring of full-time employees and increased incentive compensation. Restructuring costs incurred in the first six months of 2011 primarily relate to revisions of the estimated lease termination costs for EMEA Commercial branches that closed in prior years. Restructuring costs incurred in the first six months of 2010 primarily related to severance and lease termination costs for branches in the EMEA Commercial and APAC Commercial segments that were in the process of closure at the end of 2009, and severance costs related to the corporate headquarters.
Income tax expense for the first six months of 2011 was $0.7 million, compared to $1.8 million for the first six months of 2010. The low tax rate in 2011 is a direct result of significant employment-related tax credits. The 2011 expense includes the favorable impact of the HIRE Act retention credit and improvements in our work opportunity credit estimates.
Included in earnings from continuing operations were restructuring charges of $3.4 million, net of tax, for the first six months of 2011 and $3.6 million, net of tax, for the first six months of 2010.
Diluted earnings from continuing operations per share for the first six months of 2011 were $0.56, as compared to $0.05 for the first six months of 2010.
Discontinued operations in the first six months of 2011 represents costs of litigation, net of tax, retained from the 2007 sale of the Kelly Home Care business unit.

The Americas PT gross profit rate decreased primarily due to mix, as we continue to experience stronger growth in the lower-margin PT businesses, along with the unfavorable impact related to the expiration of the HIRE Act. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily due to hiring of recruiters, higher salaries and performance-based compensation in support of our PT expansion efforts.

The change in revenue from services in APAC Commercial resulted from an increase in temporary sales growth in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. APAC Commercial revenue represented 7% of total Company revenue in the first six months of both 2011 and 2010.
The decrease in the APAC Commercial gross profit rate was primarily due to a decline in temporary gross profit rates due to changes in business mix related to growth in lower margin key accounts. SG&A expenses increased, primarily due to higher salaries and related costs from the investment in additional full-time employees across the region.

Revenue from services in the OCG segment for the first six months of 2011 increased in the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions, due primarily to growth in our BPO, RPO and CWO practices. OCG revenue represented 5% of total Company revenue in the first six months of both 2011 and 2010.

 

26


Table of Contents

The OCG gross profit rate increased primarily due to increased volume mix in the RPO and CWO practice areas, as well as increases in gross profit rates in the RPO practice area. The increase in SG&A expenses is primarily the result of support costs associated with new customer programs, as well as higher volumes on existing programs, in our RPO and CWO practice areas.
Financial Condition
Historically, we have financed our operations through cash generated by operating activities and access to credit markets. Our working capital requirements are primarily generated from temporary employee payroll and customer accounts receivable. Since receipts from customers generally lag payroll to temporary employees, working capital requirements increase substantially in periods of growth. As highlighted in the consolidated statements of cash flows, our liquidity and available capital resources are impacted by four key components: cash and equivalents, operating activities, investing activities and financing activities.
Cash and Equivalents
Cash and equivalents totaled $80 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011 and year-end 2010. As further described below, we used $7 million of cash in operating activities, $5 million of cash in investing activities and generated $8 million in cash from financing activities.
Operating Activities
In the first six months of 2011, we used $7 million of cash for operating activities, as compared to using $20 million in the first six months of 2010. The decreased use of cash was due to stronger earnings growth in 2011.
Trade accounts receivable totaled $930 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011. Global days sales outstanding were 52 days at the end of the second quarter of 2011 and 50 days at the end of the second quarter of 2010.
Our working capital position was $413 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011, an increase of $45 million from year-end 2010. The current ratio was 1.6 at the end of the second quarter of 2011 and year-end 2010.
Investing Activities
In the first six months of 2011, we used $5 million of cash for investing activities, compared to $3 million in the first six months of 2010. Capital expenditures in both years relate primarily to the Company’s information technology programs.
In the second quarter of 2011, the Company’s remaining two Japanese yen-denominated forward foreign currency contracts matured. The settlement of the contracts resulted in net proceeds of $0.7 million to the Company. As of July 3, 2011, the Company had no open forward foreign currency exchange contracts.
Financing Activities
In the first six months of 2011, we generated $8 million of cash from financing activities, compared to $5 million in the first six months of 2010. Debt totaled $89 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011, compared to $79 million at year-end 2010. Debt-to-total capital (total debt reported on the balance sheet divided by total debt plus stockholders’ equity) is a common ratio to measure the relative capital structure and leverage of the Company. Our ratio of debt-to-total capital was 11.9% at the end of the second quarter of 2011 and 11.2% at year-end 2010.
To take advantage of improved conditions in the credit markets and obtain more favorable pricing and flexible terms and conditions, effective March 31, 2011, we refinanced our secured revolving credit facility and securitization facility. Our new revolver has total capacity of $150 million and carries a term of five years, maturing March 31, 2016. The new securitization facility carries a three-year term and has a total capacity of $150 million. Additionally, during March, we repaid term debt of $63 million. In the second quarter of 2010, we paid $7 million due on our yen-denominated facility.

Table of Contents

Included in financing activities during the first six months of 2010 was $24 million related to the sale of 1,576,169 shares of Kelly’s Class A common stock to Temp Holdings. The shares were sold in a private transaction at $15.42 per share, which was the average of the closing prices of the Class A common stock for the five days from May 3, 2010 through May 7, 2010, and represented 4.8 percent of the outstanding Class A shares after the completion of the sale.
New Accounting Pronouncement
See New Accounting Pronouncement footnote in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a description of new accounting pronouncements.
Contractual Obligations and Commercial Commitments
There are no material changes in our obligations and commitments to make future payments from those included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed February 17, 2011. We have no material, unrecorded commitments, losses, contingencies or guarantees associated with any related parties or unconsolidated entities .
Liquidity
We expect to meet our ongoing short- and long-term cash requirements principally through cash generated from operations, available cash and equivalents, securitization and committed unused credit facilities. Additional funding sources could include public or private bonds, asset-based lending, additional bank facilities or other sources.
We utilize intercompany loans, dividends, capital contributions and redemptions, and a multi-national cash pool to effectively manage our cash on a global basis. At the present time, we do not have plans to repatriate the majority of our international excess cash balances. As our business recovers, we expect this international cash will be needed to fund working capital growth in our local operations. The majority of our international cash was invested in our cash pool and was available to fund general corporate needs domestically and internationally. There are no significant restrictions on our ability to utilize the cash pool, and we did so throughout the quarter as necessary.
We manage our cash and debt very closely to optimize our capital structure. As our cash balances build, we tend to pay down debt as appropriate, which occurred at year-end 2010 and during the first quarter of 2011. Conversely, when working capital needs grow, we tend to use corporate cash and cash available in the cash pool first, and then access our borrowing facilities, which occurred during the second quarter of 2011 to meet increasing working capital needs.
As of July 3, 2011, we had $135 million of available capacity on our $150 million revolving credit facility and $25 million of available capacity on our $150 million securitization facility. The securitization facility carried $74 million of short-term borrowings and $51 million of standby letters of credit related to workers’ compensation. Together, the revolving credit and securitization facilities provide the Company with committed funding capacity that may be used for general corporate purposes. While we believe these facilities will cover our working capital needs over the short term, if economic conditions or operating results change significantly, we may need to seek additional sources of funds.
We monitor the credit ratings of our major banking partners on a regular basis. We also have regular discussions with them. Based on our reviews and communications, we believe the risk of one or more of our banks not being able to honor their commitments is insignificant. We also review the ratings and holdings of our money market funds and other investment vehicles regularly to ensure high credit quality and access to our invested cash.

Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements contained in this report are “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include statements which are predictive in nature, which depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or which include words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” or variations or negatives thereof or by similar or comparable words or phrases. In addition, any statements concerning future financial performance (including future revenues, earnings or growth rates), ongoing business strategies or prospects, and possible future actions by us that may be provided by management, including oral statements or other written materials released to the public, are also forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and projections about future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions about our company and economic and market factors in the countries in which we do business, among other things. These statements are not guarantees of future performance, and we have no specific intention to update these statements.
Actual events and results may differ materially from those expressed or forecasted in forward-looking statements due to a number of factors. The principal important risk factors that could cause our actual performance and future events and actions to differ materially from such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, competitive market pressures including pricing, changing market and economic conditions, our ability to achieve our business strategy, including our ability to successfully expand into new markets and service lines, material changes in demand from or loss of large corporate customers, impairment charges initiated by adverse industry or market developments, unexpected termination of customer contracts, availability of temporary workers with appropriate skills required by customers, liabilities for employment-related claims and losses, including class action lawsuits, unexpected changes in claim trends on workers’ compensation and benefit plans, our ability to maintain specified financial covenants in our bank facilities, our ability to access credit markets and continued availability of financing for funding working capital, our ability to sustain critical business applications through our key data centers, our ability to effectively implement and manage our information technology programs, our ability to retain the services of our senior management, local management and field personnel, the impact of changes in laws and regulations (including federal, state and international tax laws), the net financial impact of recent U.S. healthcare legislation on our business, and risks associated with conducting business in foreign countries, including foreign currency fluctuations. Certain risk factors are discussed more fully under “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report filed on Form 10-K.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
The Company is exposed to foreign currency risk primarily due to its net investment in foreign subsidiaries, which conduct business in their local currencies. The Company may also utilize local currency-denominated borrowings.
In addition, the Company is exposed to interest rate risks through its use of the multi-currency line of credit and other borrowings. A hypothetical fluctuation of 10% of market interest rates would not have a material impact on 2011 second quarter earnings.
Marketable equity investments, representing our investment in Temp Holdings, are stated at fair value and marked to market through stockholders’ equity, net of tax. Impairments in value below historical cost, if any, deemed to be other than temporary, would be expensed in the consolidated statement of earnings. See the Fair Value Measurements footnote in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for further discussion.
The Company is exposed to market risk as a result of its obligation to pay benefits under its nonqualified deferred compensation plan and its related investments in company-owned variable universal life insurance policies. The obligation to employees increases and decreases based on movements in the equity and debt markets. The investments in mutual funds, as part of the company-owned variable universal life insurance policies, are designed to mitigate, but not eliminate, this risk with offsetting gains and losses.
Overall, the Company’s holdings and positions in market risk-sensitive instruments do not subject the Company to material risk.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
Based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”)) are effective.
There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the Company’s most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings.
The Company is the subject of two pending class action lawsuits. The two lawsuits, Fuller v. Kelly Services, Inc. and Kelly Home Care Services, Inc., pending in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles, and Sullivan v. Kelly Services, Inc., pending in the U.S. District Court Southern District of California, both involve claims for monetary damages by current and former temporary employees working in the State of California.
The Fuller matter involves claims relating to alleged misclassification of personal attendants as exempt and not entitled to overtime compensation under state law and alleged technical violations of a state law governing the content of employee pay stubs. The Sullivan matter relates to claims by temporary workers for compensation while interviewing for assignments. Tentative settlements have been reached in both matters and are awaiting final court approval. Accordingly, a $1.2 million after-tax charge related to the Fuller matter was recognized in discontinued operations during the second quarter of 2011 .
The Company is continuously engaged in litigation arising in the ordinary course of its business, typically matters alleging employment discrimination, alleging wage and hour violations or enforcing the restrictive covenants in the Company’s employment agreements. While there is no expectation that any of these matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows, litigation is always subject to inherent uncertainty and the Company is not able to reasonably predict if any matter will be resolved in a manner that is materially adverse to the Company.

There have been no material changes in the Company’s risk factors disclosed in Part I, Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report filed on Form 10-K for year ended January 2, 2011, except as noted below:
The Federal government is a significant customer of the Company. A default on its debt obligations poses a risk of nonpayment to the Company; however, any shortfall would presently be covered by cash from operations and existing funding facilities.
