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.

Guru Investment Theses on Exa Corp

Meridian Funds Comments on Exa Corp - Jun 20, 2014

Exa Corp. (EXA) provides software for simulation driven product design. The stock experienced erosion in its price during the period, which made it the second largest detractor to performance. We view the company as being an open-ended growth opportunity as software based simulation benefits from prototyping in transportation markets. Simulation reduces the need for expensive prototypes, increases automation, and allows for faster turnaround times, which ultimately result in customer savings. Exa signs annual consumption-based licenses with customers, which we believe create predictable revenue streams with low volatility.

Exa Corp was incorporated in the state of Delaware on November 21, 1991. The Company completed its initial public offering on July 3, 2012. It develops, sells and supports simulation software and services that vehicle manufacturers use to enhance the performance of their products, reduce product development costs and improve the efficiency of their design and engineering processes. Its solution enables its customers to augment or replace conventional methods of evaluating design alternatives that are expensive and inefficient physical prototypes and test facilities, such as wind tunnels, with accurate digital simulations that are more useful and timely. Its solutions facilitate its clients to gain insights about design performance early in the design cycle that reduce the likelihood of expensive redesigns and late-stage engineering changes. Its product, PowerFLOW, is a software solution for simulating complex fluid flow problems, including aerodynamics, thermal management, and aeroacoustics, or wind noise. PowerFLOW relies upon technology that enables it to predict complex fluid flows with a level of reliability than physical testing. Currently the Company is engaged on the ground transportation market, including manufacturers in the passenger vehicle, highway truck, off-highway vehicle and train markets, as well as their suppliers.
