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.

Guru Investment Theses on Maximus Inc

Baron Funds Comments on MAXIMUS Inc - Mar 20, 2015

Strength in IT was largely attributable to the outperformance of MAXIMUS, Inc. (MMS) and SS&C Technologies, Inc. (SSNC), which were also the Fund’s two largest contributors to absolute performance.

Shares of MAXIMUS, Inc. (MMS), a provider of outsourced government health and human services in the U.S., U.K. and Australia, rose in the fourth quarter. Investors were buoyed by management’s roadmap for meaningful earnings acceleration in 2016.They were also pleased with 2015 visibility; MAXIMUS will enter the year with almost 100% of its midpoint revenue guidance in backlog or option renewals. We believe this is a well positioned and well run, strong cash generative company. (Susan Robbins)

Maximus Inc was formed in 1975. It provides business process services to government health and human services agencies under its mission of Helping Government Serve the People.. It is a pure-play health and human service administrative provider to governments in the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia. Its business is primarily focused on administering government-sponsored programs such as Medicaid, the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP), health care reform, welfare-to-work, Medicare, child support enforcement and other government programs. The Company conducts its operations through two business segments: Health Services and Human Services. The Health Services Segment provides a variety of business process managed services and administrative support services for state, federal, national and local government programs, including: Medicaid, Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP, Health Care Reform, Medicare and Health Insurance BC (British Columbia). The Human Services Segment provides a variety of administrative support and case management services for federal, national, state and county human services agencies including welfare-to-work programs, child support enforcement, higher education services and K-12 special education services. Its primary customers are government agencies at the federal and state level and, to a lesser extent, at the county and municipal level.

Its competitors in the Health Service segment in the United States are ACS, a Xerox Company (ACS); EDS, an HP Company and specialized private service providers. Its primary competitors in the Human Services Segment market include Serco, Atos Origin, private services and specialized consulting companies and non-profit organizations.
