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.

EZChip Semiconductor Ltd, formerly known as Dan-Serb Ltd., was incorporated as a limited liability company under the laws of the State of Israel in 1989. The Company along with its subsidiary is engaged in the development and marketing of Ethernet network processors for networking equipment. It provides its customers with solutions that scale from a few Gigabits per second to hundreds of Gigabits per second. Its network processors provide flexibility and performance coupled with superior integration and power efficiency for applications in carrier, data center, cloud and enterprise networking equipment. The Company designs and produces network processors for high-speed networking equipment, integrating several key functions into a single chip. Its products include: Network Processor Chips and Evaluation Boards and Network-processor Based Systems. The NP-2 is a single-chip, full-duplex, 10-Gigabit network processor. In addition to the integration of packet processing, classification search engines and MACs provided in the previous generation NP-1c, the NP-2 also includes traffic managers for improved QoS. Evaluation Boards and Network-processor Based Systems - Evaluation systems are usually required by customers to enable them to test their NPU-based systems. These systems also serve customers to differentiate themselves through software applications and are in need of high-performance packet processing hardware platforms for their software applications. Development Software Toolkits - EZdriver is a software development toolset with a graphical user interface for writing, testing and debugging programs for network processors to implement a range of applications and reduce time to market of next-generation networking products. It includes a hardware-software simulator, a compiler, debugger and other utilities. The Company's marketing communications activities include: seminar programs, guest speaker invitations and technical conferences; public relations activities and customer events; technical articles in industry publications and marketing collateral materials; and information exchange on the Internet. The Company also works with vendors of complementary technologies to provide its customers with interoperable solutions. It provides interoperability with devices from numerous semiconductor companies, including Broadcom, Marvell, PMC-Sierra and Zarlink. It holds four U.S. registered patents. The Company competes with all these vendors as well as with multi-core processors that target networking equipment from vendors, such as Broadcom, Cavium Networks and other smaller vendors.
