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.

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.

At the very least, you'll have no problem fil...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The 17th International Cloud Expo has announced that its Call for Papers is open. 17th International Cloud Expo, to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, brings together Cloud Computing, APM, APIs, Microservices, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps and WebRTC to one location.

In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Building low-cost wearable devices can enhance the quality of our lives. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Sai Yamanoor, Embedded Software Engineer at Altschool, provided an example of putting together a small keychain within a $50 budget that educates the user about the air quality in their surroundings. He also provided examples such as building a wearable device that provides transit or recreational information. He then reviewed the resources available to build wearable devices at home including open source hardware, the raw materials required and the options available to power s...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
