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•

Traded in other countries:AD8.Germany, ARCO N.Mexico,
Arcos Dorados Holdings Inc was incorporated on December 9, 2010 under the laws of the British Virgin Islands as a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of Arcos Dorados Limited, the prior holding company for the Arcos Dorados business. The Company operates its McDonald's-branded restaurants under two basic structures: Company-operated restaurants operated by it and franchised restaurants operated by franchisees. As of December 31, 2013, it operated or franchised 2062 McDonald's branded restaurants, which represented 7.2% of McDonald's total franchised restaurants worldwide. It divides its operations into four geographical divisions: Brazil; the Caribbean division, consisting of Aruba, Colombia, Curaçao, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, the U.S. Virgin Islands of St. Croix and St. Thomas and Venezuela; North Latin America division, or NOLAD, consisting of Costa Rica, Mexico and Panama; and South Latin America division, or SLAD, consisting of Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Peru and Uruguay. It conducts substantially all its business through its indirect, wholly-owned Dutch subsidiary Arcos Dorados B.V. As of December 31, 2013, 39.4% of our restaurants were located in Brazil, 18.3% in South Latin America division, or SLAD, 24.6% in North Latin America division, or NOLAD and 17.7% in the Caribbean division.
