GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:A8S.Germany
Actions Semiconductor Co., Ltd. was incorporated under the Companies Law of the Cayman Islands on July 27, 2005. It is a fabless semiconductor company that designs, develops and markets integrated platform solutions, including SoCs, firmware, software development tools and reference designs, for manufacturers of portable media players. It provides integrated platform solutions to portable media player manufacturers, brand owners and value-added distributors that enable them to accelerate the time-to-market for its products. The company's integrated platform solutions incorporate the following features that enable its customers to bring portable media players to market with a minimum level of technology investment. Its integrated platform solutions, which comprise SoCs, firmware, software development tools and reference designs, obviate the need for its customers to invest in costly and time-consuming internal firmware and software development for their products, or to source them from multiple suppliers. The Company's network of third-party value-added distributors and applications developers enable its customers to quickly introduce products with differentiated features and to cost-effectively customize its solutions. Its mixed-signal design capabilities allow it to integrate analog and digital components using compact system architecture in its portable media player SoCs, and enable its customers to reduce their overall costs and produce smaller, more power-efficient portable products. The Company's proximity to the China-based manufacturers of portable media players and presence in the rapidly evolving China market for portable media players enable it to better identify market trends and align its product development efforts with these market trends. It provides a variety of solutions along the portable media player design and manufacturing value chain. For most of its value-added distributor customers and certain more sophisticated contract manufacturer and brand owner customers, it provides its SoCs and solution development kits, or SDKs. For less sophisticated customers, it provides its total solutions that consist of its SoCs, SDKs as well as reference designs that include detailed specifications of other required components and references to the providers of those components, which together allow these customers to assemble a complete portable media player. Its SoCs are manufactured by third-party foundries that process silicon wafers and produce the SoCs. Presently, He Jian and UMC manufacture almost all of its semiconductors in mass production stage. The Company also maintains relationships with other contract foundries to help ensure it has alternative manufacturing capabilities in various processing technologies. It sells its products in China and world-wide through distribution arrangements and through its direct sales force to value-added distributors, contract manufacturers and brand owners. The Company faces compe
