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

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc is a specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America. It offers products including domestic hardwood species, engineered hardwood, laminate, vinyl plank, bamboo and cork.

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. was founded in 1994. In August 2007, it reincorporated from Massachusetts to Delaware, and in November 2007, it completed its initial public offering. The Company is a specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in the United States.

Its product offering is comprised of its proprietary brands, led by its flagship Bellawood brand. It's hardwood flooring products are available in various widths and lengths and are differentiated in terms of quality and price based on the species, grade of the hardwood and quality of finishing, in addition to the length of the warranty. The Company also offers a broad assortment of flooring enhancements and installation accessories, including moldings, noise-reducing underlay and adhesives, that complement its assortment of floor offerings. The Company's proprietary solid hardwood products are milled from one thick piece of wood, which could be sanded and refinished numerous times.

Like its solid hardwood floors, its engineered hardwood floors are offered in domestic and exotic wood species, and in either glue down or floating application. It also offers wood flooring moldings and accessories. It also sells stair treads and risers in both finished and unfinished versions. The Company's proprietary bamboo products, harvested from the fast growing bamboo plant, are offered as a prefinished or stained solid wood or engineered floor. The Company's stores are designed to emphasize its products in a visually appealing showroom format, yet reflect its low-cost approach to doing business. The Company has a number of marks registered in the United States, including Lumber Liquidators, Bellawood, 1-800-FLOORING, Dura-Wood, Blutec, Quickclic, Virginia Mill Works Co. Hand Scraped and Distressed Floors, Morning Star Bamboo Flooring, Dream Home Laminate Floors, Builder's Pride, Schon Engineered Floors and Casa de Colour Collection.
