••3. Consistency of the profitability

Multiband Corporation is a Minnesota corporation formed in September 1975. The Company has three operating segments Field Services (FS), Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU), and Engineering, Energy & Construction (EE&C). The Company, through its FS segment, generates revenue from the installation and service of DIRECTV video programming for residents of single family homes under a contract with DIRECTV. The FS segment functions as a fulfillment arm for DIRECTV. The FS segment also provides installation services for certain broadband cable and internet providers and commercial customers. The Company, through its MDU segment, bills customers for the voice, internet and video services it provides to residents of MDU facilities as an owner/operator of those subscribers. In addition, since 2004, the Company serves as a master system operator for DIRECTV, which allows it to offer satellite television services to residents of multi-dwelling-units through a network of affiliated operators. MDU offers video and, in some cases, data and voice to residents of multi-dwelling units primarily throughout the Midwest and the Southeast. The Company's primary competition in this market comes from the local incumbent providers of telephone and cable television services. The main competitors in these services are the former Bell System Companies such as Verizon Communications (Verizon) and Qwest Communications International, Inc. (Qwest) and national cable companies such as Comcast Corporation (Comcast) and Time Warner. These regional and national rivals have significant resources and are strong competitors.
