Harold M. Messmer, Jr., chairman and CEO of Robert Half International, said:

Certain information contained in this press release may be deemed 
forward-looking statements regarding events and financial trends that may 
affect the company's future operating results or financial positions.  These 
statements may be identified by words such as "estimate", "forecast", 
"project", "plan", "intend", "believe", "expect", "anticipate", or variations 
or negatives thereof, or by similar or comparable words or phrases.  
Forward?looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could 
cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the 
statements. 
These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following: 
the global financial and economic situation; changes in levels of unemployment 
and other economic conditions in the United States or foreign countries where 
the company does business, or in particular regions or industries; reduction 
in the supply of candidates for temporary employment or the company's ability 
to attract candidates; the entry of new competitors into the marketplace or 
expansion by existing competitors; the ability of the company to maintain 
existing client relationships and attract new clients in the context of 
changing economic or competitive conditions; the impact of competitive 
pressures, including any change in the demand for the company's services, on 
the company's ability to maintain its margins; the possibility of the company 
incurring liability for its activities, including the activities of its 
temporary employees, or for events impacting its temporary employees on 
clients' premises; the possibility that adverse publicity could impact the 
company's ability to attract and retain clients and candidates; the success of 
the company in attracting, training, and retaining qualified management 
personnel and other staff employees; the company's ability to comply with 
governmental regulations affecting personnel services businesses in particular 
or employer/employee relationships in general; whether there will be ongoing 
demand for Sarbanes-Oxley or other regulatory compliance services; the 
company's reliance on short-term contracts for a significant percentage of its 
business; litigation relating to prior or current transactions or activities, 
including litigation that may be disclosed from time to time in the company's 
SEC filings; the ability of the company to manage its international operations 
and comply with foreign laws and regulations; the impact of fluctuations in 
foreign currency exchange rates; the possibility that the additional costs the 
company will incur as a result of healthcare reform legislation may adversely 
affect the company's profit margins or the demand for the company's services; 
the possibility that the company's computer and communications hardware and 
software systems could be damaged or their service interrupted; and the 
possibility that the company may fail to maintain adequate financial and 
management controls and as a result suffer errors in its financial reporting. 
Additionally, with respect to Protiviti, other risks and uncertainties include 
the fact that future success will depend on its ability to retain employees 
and attract clients; there can be no assurance that there will be ongoing 
demand for Sarbanes-Oxley or other regulatory compliance services; failure to 
produce projected revenues could adversely affect financial results; and there 
is the possibility of involvement in litigation relating to prior or current 
transactions or activities. 
Because long-term contracts are not a significant part of the company's 
business, future results cannot be reliably predicted by considering past 
trends or extrapolating past results.  The company undertakes no obligation to 
update information contained in this release.

ROBERT HALF INTERNATIONAL INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES 
The financial results of Robert Half International Inc. (the "Company") are 
prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the 
United States of America ("GAAP") and the rules of the U.S. Securities and 
Exchange Commission ("SEC").  To help readers understand the Company's 
financial performance, the Company supplements its GAAP financial results with 
revenue growth rates derived from non-GAAP revenue amounts. 
Variations in the Company's financial results include the impact of changes in 
foreign currency exchange rates and billing days.  The Company provides "same 
billing days and constant currency" revenue growth calculations to remove the 
impact of these items.  These calculations show the year-over-year revenue 
growth rates for the Company's staffing lines of business on both a reported 
basis and also on a same-day, constant-currency basis for global, U.S. and 
international operations.  This information is presented for each of the five 
most recent quarters.  The Company has provided this data because management 
believes it better reflects the Company's actual revenue growth rates and aids 
in evaluating revenue trends over time.  The Company expresses year-over-year 
revenue changes as calculated percentages using the same number of billing 
days and constant currency exchange rates. 
The non-GAAP financial measures provided herein may not provide information 
that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the 
Company's industry, as other companies may calculate such financial results 
differently.  The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements 
of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as 
alternatives to actual revenue growth derived from revenue amounts presented 
in accordance with GAAP.  The Company does not consider these non-GAAP 
financial measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information 
provided by GAAP financial results.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP 
financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is 
provided on the following pages.

The non-GAAP financial measures included in the table above adjust for the 
following items: 
Foreign Currency Translation.  The "As Reported" revenue growth rates are 
based upon reported revenues, which include the impact of changes in foreign 
currency exchange rates.  In order to calculate "Constant Currency" revenue 
growth rates, as-reported amounts are retranslated using foreign exchange 
rates from the prior year's comparable period. 
Billing Days.  The "As Reported" revenue growth rates are based upon reported 
revenues.  Management calculates a global, weighted-average number of billing 
days for each reporting period based upon input from all countries and all 
Staffing lines of business.  In order to remove the fluctuations caused by 
comparable periods having different billing days, the company calculates "same 
billing day" revenue growth rates by dividing each comparative period's 
reported revenues by the calculated number of billing days for that period, to 
arrive at a "per billing day" amount.  The "same billing day" growth rates are 
then calculated based upon the "per billing day" amounts. 
The term "same billing days and constant currency" means that the impact of 
different billing days has been removed from constant currency calculation.  A 
reconciliation of the non-GAAP year-over-year revenue growth rates to the "As 
Reported" year-over-year revenue growth rates is included herein on Pages 
10-11.
