April 23 Manpower Group Inc's quarterly
profit almost tripled, helped partly by improved hiring in
Europe and lower selling and administrative costs.
The world's third-largest staffing company said its net
income rose to $70.1 million, or 86 cents per share, in the
first quarter ended March 31, from $23.9 million, or 31 cents
per share, a year earlier.
The prior year first-quarter results included a pretax
restructuring charge of $34.8 million.
Total revenue rose 3 percent to $4.90 billion.
