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: Application Software » Software - Application
Compare:CRM, SQI, RHT, INTU, ADBE » details
Traded in other countries:MGP.Germany,
Mentor Graphics Corp was incorporated in Oregon in 1981. The Company provides electronic design automation. It provides software and hardware design solutions. It markets its products and services worldwide, primarily to companies in the communications, computer, consumer electronics, semiconductor, networking, multimedia, military and aerospace, and transportation industries. The electronic components and systems that its customers create with its products include integrated circuits (ICs), printed circuit boards (PCBs), field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), embedded software solutions, wire harness systems, and computers. Its products are used in the design and development of a diverse set of electronic products, including automotive electronics, computers and workstations, digital cameras, cellular telephones, medical devices, smart phones, industrial electronics, and manufacturing systems. It designs its products to enable engineers to overcome increasingly complex electronic design challenges by improving the accuracy of complex designs and shrinking product time-to-market schedules. Its Mentor Graphics Scalable Verification tools allow engineers to verify that their complex IC designs function as intended. Functional errors are a leading cause of design revisions that slow down an electronic system's time-to-market and reduce its profitability. The Questa scalable verification platform includes support for hardware description languages, including System Verilog, simulation, and new methodologies including assertions, use of verification intellectual property (IP), test benches, and formal verification methods. The Questa platform is used for verification of systems and ICs including application-specific integrated circuits, SoCs, and FPGAs. Along with digital simulation products, it offers analog/mixed-signal simulators. Complex electronic designs often require different types of circuits, such as analog and digital, to work together. An example is a CD or DVD player which uses a digital input and produces an analog output of sounds or images. Its analog/mixed signal simulation products include the Eldo, ADVance MS, and ADiT tools. It provides hardware emulation systems, such as its Veloce product family, which allow users to create high-performance functional and logical equivalent models of actual electronic circuits to verify the function and timing of those circuits. The Company's software products are available on UNIX, Windows, and LINUX platforms in a broad range of price and performance levels. Customers purchase platforms from workstation and personal computer suppliers. Its software manufacturing operations primarily consist of reproduction of its technical software and documentation. The Company's competitors are Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Cadence) and Synopsys, Inc. (Synopsys).
