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: Credit Services » Credit Services
Compare:V, MA, TCAP, COF, RDCRL » details
MicroFinancial Inc was formed as a Massachusetts corporation on January 27, 1987. The Company operates mainly through its wholly-owned subsidiaries: TimePayment Corp. and Leasecomm Corporation. TimePayment is a commercial or consumer finance company that leases and rents equipment and provides other financing services. Leasecomm originated leases from January 1986 through October 2002 and continues to service its remaining contract portfolio. The Company provides financing alternatives to lessees from start-up businesses to established enterprises. It mainly leases and rents low-priced commercial equipment, which is used by these lessees in their daily operations. It does not market its services directly to lessees. The Company mainly sources its originations through network of independent equipment vendors, independent sales organizations, brokers and other dealer-based origination networks. The Company originates leases for products that have limited distribution channels and are costly to sell. The Company facilitates sales of such products by allowing dealers to make them available to their customers for a small monthly lease payment rather than a higher initial purchase price. It primarily leases and rent low-priced commercial equipment to small merchants. The Company leases equipment including, but not limited to, water filtration systems, food service equipment, security equipment, point of sale cash registers, salon equipment, health care and fitness equipment and automotive equipment. The Company provides financing to obligors under microticket leases and contracts through a network of equipment vendors, independent sales organizations and brokers. The Company competes for customers with a number of national, regional and local banks and finance companies. Its competitors also include equipment manufacturers that lease or finance the sale of their own products.
