Report of Independent Accountants
Kelly Services. Inc. and Subsidiaries
To the Stockholders and Board of Directors,
Kelly Services, Inc.
In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheets and the related statements of earnings, of stockholders' equity and of cash flows present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Kelly Services, Inc. and its subsidiaries at January 2, 2000, January 3, 1999, and December 28, 1997, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management; our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits of these statements in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States, which require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed above.
