3Q22. Revenue of $1.17 billion was down 2.3% year-over-year (up 0.3% in constant currency). Consensus was $1.22 billion and we were at $1.23 billion. Kelly took a $30.7 million asset impairment charge related to its RocketPower acquisition during the quarter. As a result, GAAP EPS loss was $0.43 compared to net income EPS of $0.88 in 3Q21. Adjusted EPS for the third quarter was $0.25 versus $0.26 last year. We had projected adjusted EPS of $0.24.

GP Rate Continues to Improve. Management continues to drive gross profit rate. GP rate for the quarter was 20.6%, up 140 basis points y-o-y, with all segments once again reporting increased gross profit rate. The improvement has come from a combination of steps to improve organic GP and the addition of higher margin specialty business through recent acquisitions. We believe GP rate can continue to increase.
