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.

CSP Inc and its subsidiaries are engaged in developing and marketing IT integration solutions, security and managed services and purpose built network adapters, as well as cluster computer systems.

CSP, Inc., was incorporated in 1968. The Company and its subsidiaries develop and market IT integration solutions and high-performance cluster computer systems. It operates in two segments, the Systems segment and the Service and System Integration segment. The Systems segment consists mainly of CSPI's MultiComputer Division which designs and manufactures commercial high-performance computer signal processing systems for a variety of complex real time applications in defense and commercial markets. MultiComputer Division products are based on an architectural solution that is open, standards-based, vendor independent, scalable, easily integrated with third-party products and compatible with future product offerings. These products utilize cluster technologies, multi-core processors, and many-core General Purpose Graphics Processing Units ('GPGPUs'). MultiComputer systems consist of 'blades' (self-contained, high-density computer boards) and are designed to achieve a high level of computer processing and to operate in environments with size, weight and power ('SWaP') limitations. The blades and other components that make up the system can be housed in commercially available air-cooled chassis or in ruggedized chassis, designed to withstand physically demanding environments. These systems have traditionally been utilized for sonar and radar digital signal processing ('DSP'), image recognition and simulation applications. The MultiComputer Division sells all its products through its own direct sales force in the United States and via distributors and authorized resellers in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. The Service and System Integration Segment consists of the computer maintenance and integration services and third-party computer hardware and software value added reseller ('VAR') businesses of its Modcomp subsidiary ('Modcomp'). Modcomp is a wholly owned subsidiary of CSPI which operates in the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom. Modcomp markets and sells its products through its own direct sales force. Modcomp provides solutions and services for complex IT environments including storage and servers, unified communications solutions, IT security solutions and consulting services. Modcomp also provides managed IT services through its state of the art network operations center ('NOC'). Its manufacturing activities consist mainly of final assembly and testing of printed circuit boards and systems that are designed by the Copany and fabricated by outside vendors. The Company markets its MultiComputer products to defense and commercial markets with an emphasis on applications requiring the analysis of complex signals such as seismic exploration, scientific/engineering research, sonar and radar. It commercially distributes its products in these markets as an original equipment manufacturer ('OEM') supplier to system integrators, distributors and value-added resellers. The Company's direct competitors in the aerospace and
