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•

NIC Inc. is a provider of eGovernment services that helps governments uses the Internet to increase internal efficiencies and provide a higher level of service to businesses and citizens. The Company accomplishes this currently through two divisions: its portal outsourcing businesses and its software & services businesses. In the Company's primary portal outsourcing business, it enters into long-term contracts with governments to design, build and operate Web-based portals on their behalf. These portals consist of Web sites and applications it has built that allow businesses and citizens to access government information online and complete transactions, including applying for a permit, retrieving driver's license records or filing a government mandated form or report. The Company's self-funding business model is one where it absorbs the costs to build the portal's technical infrastructure and develop eGovernment services. After the applications have launched, it and its government partners share a portion of the fees generated from electronic transactions. NIC's government partners benefit through gaining a centralized, customer-focused presence on the Internet, while businesses and citizens receive a faster, more convenient and more cost-effective means to interact with governments. NIC's software & services businesses mainly include its Uniform Commercial Code and corporate filings software development and ethics & elections businesses. The Company offers UCC applications through several of its state portals, typically through the Secretary of State's office. Currently, the Company has 29 portals through which it provides outsourced portal services to state governments. The Company's ethics & elections business, NIC Technologies, designs and develops online campaign expenditure and ethics compliance systems for federal and state government agencies. NIC Technologies currently derives a significant portion of its revenues from a contract with the FMCSA to develop and manage the PSP for motor carriers nationwide, using a self-funded, transaction-based business model. The Company faces intense competition in all sectors of its business. It has designed government portals and applications to be compatible with virtually any existing system and to be rapidly deployable.
