••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Bright Horizons Family Solutions - Aug 05, 2013

Bright Horizons Family Solutions, Inc. (BFAM) is the leading provider of high quality corporate sponsored childcare in the U.S., where it is 5 times the size of its next largest competitor and is #2 in the U.K. The company was public for ten years before being taken private in 2008 by Bain Capital. The company has a strong track record with 15 years of uninterrupted revenue and earnings growth, even during the financial crisis. Bright Horizons has an attractive business model characterized by high revenue and earnings visibility, low capital intensity, and superior ROI and cash flows. We think Bright Horizons should benefit from demographic trends of more women and dual income families in the workplace. Multiple growth avenues include additional centers and back up services for new and existing clients, greater center utilization, the accretive acquisition or assumption of established centers in a highly fragmented market, international expansion and the expansion and cross selling of new higher margin services.

Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc, formed in June 1998, is a provider of high-quality child care and early education services as well as other services designed to help employers and families better address the challenges of work and life. It provide services mainly under multi-year contracts with employers who offer child care and other dependent care solutions as part of their employee benefits packages to improve employee engagement, productivity, recruitment and retention. As of December 31, 2013, it operated a total of 880 child care and early education centers across a wide range of customer industries with the capacity to serve approximately 87,100 children in the United States, as well as in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Ireland, Canada and India.

Its P&L model is further classified into two subcategories: a sponsor model, where it provides child care and early education services on either an exclusive or priority enrollment basis for the employees of a specific employer sponsor; and a lease/consortium model, where it provides child care and early education services to the employees of multiple employers located within a specific real estate development (for example, an office building or office park), as well as to families in the surrounding community. In both its cost-plus and sponsor P&L models, the development of a new child care center, as well as ongoing maintenance and repair, is typically funded by an employer sponsor with whom it enter into a multi-year contractual relationship. It also provide back-up dependent care services through its own centers and through its Back-Up Care Advantage ('BUCA') program, which offers access to a contracted network of in-home care agencies and approximately 2,500 center-based providers in locations where it does not otherwise have centers with available capacity.
