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

HD Radio technology permits a station to transmit radio programming in both analog and digital formats. The Company's stations are typically classified by their format, such as news, talk, classic rock, adult contemporary, alternative, oldies and jazz, among others. A station's format enables it to target specific segments of listeners sharing certain demographics. Advertisers and stations use data published by audience measuring services to know how many people within particular geographical markets and demographics listen to specific stations. The Company's geographically and demographically diverse portfolio of radio stations allows it to deliver targeted messages to specific audiences for advertisers on a local, regional and national basis. It operates with a nationwide portfolio of 23 markets; San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Denver, Portland, Sacramento, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Austin, Norfolk, Buffalo, New Orleans, Memphis, Providence, Greensboro, Greenville/Spartanburg, Rochester, Madison, Wichita, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Springfield (MA) and Gainesville/Ocala. The Company's stations compete for listeners and advertising revenue with other radio stations within their respective markets. In addition, its stations compete for audiences and advertising revenues with other media such as network and cable television, newspapers and magazines, outdoor advertising, direct mail, yellow pages, Internet, satellite radio, wireless media alternatives, cellular phones and other forms of advertisement.
