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•

Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc is a provider of high-quality child care and early education services as well as other services designed to help employers and families address the challenges of work and life.

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. The Company provides its center-based child care services under two general business models: a profit and loss ('P&L') model, where it assume the financial risk of operating a child care center; and a cost-plus model, where it is paid a fee by an employer client for managing a child care center on a cost-plus basis. 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.
