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

Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Scientific & Technical Instruments
Compare:A, ROP, GRMN, HXGBY, TRMB » details
Traded in other countries:IT6.Germany
Itron Inc. was incorporated in the state of Washington in 1977. The Company a technology company, offering end-to-end smart metering solutions to electric, natural gas, and water utilities around the world. The Company's smart metering solutions, meter data management software, and knowledge application solutions bring additional value to a utility's metering and grid systems. The Company's professional services help its customer's project-manage, install, implement, operate, and maintain their systems. Its offerings include electricity, natural gas, and water metering systems, software, and services. It classifies metering systems into three categories: standard metering, advanced metering systems and technology, and smart metering systems and technology. A standard meter measures electricity, natural gas, or water by mechanical, electromechanical, or electronic means, with no built-in remote-reading communication capability. Standard meters require manual reading, which is typically performed by a utility representative or meter reading service provider. Worldwide, it produces standard residential, commercial and industrial (C&I), and transmission and distribution (T&D) electricity, natural gas, and water meters. Advanced metering uses a communication module embedded in the meter to collect and store detailed meter data, which is transmitted to handheld computers, mobile units, and/or fixed networks, allowing utilities to collect the data for billing systems and analyze the meter data for more efficient resource management and streamlined operations. Worldwide, it produces electricity, natural gas, and water advanced metering systems and technology. Depending on the country, communication technologies include telephone, RF (radio frequency), GSM (Global System for Mobile communications), PLC (power line carrier), and Ethernet devices. Smart meters initiate and respond to two-way communications with the utility to automatically collect and transmit meter data frequently to support various applications beyond monthly billings. The Company's smart metering solutions also have substantially more features and functions than its advanced metering systems and technology. Smart meters are able to send and receive detailed data, collect and store interval data, and interface with other devices, such as in-home displays, smart thermostats and appliances, home area networks, advanced control systems, and more. It is facing increasing competition. The Company faces competitive pressures from a variety of companies in each of the markets it serves. It is subject to various governmental regulations in all of the jurisdictions in which it conducts business.
