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.

Business Description

Industry: Asset Management » Asset Management
Compare: » details
Horizon Technology Finance Corp was formed in March 2010 for the purpose of acquiring Compass Horizon and continuing its business as a public entity. The Company is a specialty finance company that lends to and invests in development-stage companies in the technology, life science, healthcare information and services and cleantech industries, referred to as Target Industries. Its investment objective is to generate current income from loans and capital appreciation from the warrants it receives when making such loans. It makes secured loans to companies backed by established venture capital and private equity firms in its Target Industries, referred to as Venture Lending. The Company also selectively lends to publicly traded companies in its Target Industries. Venture Lending is typically characterized by the making of a secured loan after a venture capital or equity investment in the portfolio company has been made, which investment provides a source of cash to fund the portfolio company's debt service obligations under the Venture Loan; the senior priority of the Venture Loan which requires repayment of the Venture Loan prior to the equity investors realizing a return on their capital; the relatively rapid amortization of the Venture Loan; and the lender's receipt of warrants or other success fees with the making of the Venture Loan. The Company is an externally managed, closed-end, non-diversified management investment company that has elected to be regulated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. In addition it has elected to be treated as a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
