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

Miller Industries Inc., was founded in 1994 and is based in Ooltewah,Tennessee. The Company is the manufacturer of towing and recovery equipment, with executive offices in Ooltewah, Tennessee, domestic manufacturing operations in Tennessee and Pennsylvania, and foreign manufacturing operations in France and the United Kingdom. The Company provides a range of towing and recovery equipment products that meet customer design, capacity and cost requirements. It manufactures the bodies of wreckers and car carriers, which are installed on truck chassis manufactured by third parties. The Company manufactures a broad line of wrecker, car carrier and trailer bodies to meet a full range of customer design, capacity and cost requirements. Wreckers are generally used to recover and tow disabled vehicles and other equipment and range in type from the conventional tow truck to large recovery vehicles with up to 75-ton lifting capacities. Car carriers are specialized flat-bed vehicles with hydraulic tilt mechanisms that enable a towing operator to drive or winch a vehicle onto the bed for transport. Car carriers are used to transport new or disabled vehicles and other equipment and are particularly effective for transporting vehicles or other equipment over longer distances. Its multi-vehicle transport trailers are specialized auto transport trailers with upper and lower decks and hydraulic ramps for loading vehicles. These trailers are used for moving multiple vehicles for auto auctions, car dealerships, leasing companies and other similar applications. It manufactures and markets its wreckers, car carriers and trailers under ten separate brand names. It purchases raw materials and component parts from a number of sources. Management categorizes the towing and recovery market into three general product types: light duty wreckers; heavy duty wreckers; and car carriers. The light duty wrecker market consists of professional wrecker operators, repossession towing services, local and national governmental entities and repair shop or salvages company owners. The heavy duty market includes professional wrecker operators serving the needs of commercial vehicle operators as well as governmental entities. The car carrier market has expanded to include equipment rental companies that offer delivery service and professional towing operators who desire to complement their existing towing capabilities. The towing and recovery equipment manufacturing industry is highly competitive for sales to distributors and towing operators. Its operations are subject to federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to the generation, storage, handling, emission, transportation and discharge of materials into the environment. Its products are sold through independent distributors that serve all 50 states, Canada and Mexico, and other foreign markets including Europe, the Pacific Rim, the Middle East, South America and Africa, and through prime contractors to gov
