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.

Guru Investment Theses on International Game Technology PLC

Mario Gabelli Comments on International Game Technology - Oct 28, 2014

International Game Technology (1.5%) (IGT)($16.87 - NYSE), based in Las Vegas, Nevada, is a global leader in the design and manufacturing of gaming equipment and related services. The company confirmed on June 16, 2014 that it was in the process of evaluating strategic alternatives. On July 16, 2014, the company entered into a merger agreement with lottery industry leader GTECH SpA for a cash and stock consideration of $18.25 per share. The deal values International Game Technology at $6.4 billion. The transaction is subject to shareholder approvals at both companies and approval from gaming commissions in twenty-three jurisdictions, four of which have already approved the deal. The transaction has received U.S. antitrust clearance and is expected to close by the first half of 2015.

Robert Olstein Comments on International Game Technology - Sep 10, 2014

On July 16, 2014, International Game Technology (IGT) announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement with GTECH S.p.A. for the acquisition of International Game Technology at a premium to the Fund’s cost. Following the announcement, the Fund liquidated its remaining position in International Game Technology based on a small deviation between the stock price and our calculation of intrinsic value.

John Rogers Comments on International Game Technology - May 07, 2014

Also, gaming manufacturer International Game Technology (IGT) returned –22.00% after a subpar earnings report. Its revenue and earnings per share both slid below consensus estimates. Specifically, revenues were 2% lower than Wall Street expected, while the (adjusted) EPS of $0.25 did not meet the $0.30 forecast. The miss came from weak regional gaming trends and higher-than-expected operating expenses. We think operating issues can be corrected and believe management is focused on the issue. In the meantime, we see light business as temporary and industry-wide— beyond IGT's control. We would be more concerned if the short-term results stemming fr om lost market share, for instance. Although there have been headwinds for this company, we remain optimistic over the long term.

Ariel Investments' John Rogers Comments on International Game Technology - Feb 25, 2014

A few of our holdings struggled in the third quarter. Gaming equipment specialist International Game Technology (IGT) slipped –3.46% due to a disappointing earnings report. Although revenues exceeded expectations by a solid margin, EPS of $0.30 fell short of the consensus $0.34 figure. The environment was more competitive than expected, leading to fewer of IGT’s games on the floor, as well as a corresponding decline in overall play. Still, the company is allocating capital smartly. It announced a $200 million share repurchase plan, which would retire roughly 4% of the shares outstanding. We continue to think that although gaming has been softer than expected in the ongoing recovery, eventually it will pick up.
