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
QAD, Inc., was founded in 1979, incorporated in California in 1986 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1997. The Company is a provider of enterprise software applications and related services and support. The Company provides enterprise software applications for global manufacturing companies mainly in the automotive, consumer products, food and beverage, high technology, industrial products and life sciences industries. More than 2,000 global manufacturing companies use its software. The Company's enterprise resource planning ('ERP') suite is called QAD Enterprise Applications, which is also known as MFG/PRO. QAD Enterprise Applications support the core business processes of its global manufacturing customers and includes the following functional areas: financials, customer management, manufacturing, demand and supply chain planning, supply chain execution, service and support, enterprise asset management, analytics, interoperability, process & performance and internationalization. The Company offers two options for deploying its ERP products: On Premise and On Demand. With the On Premise model, it sells a perpetual license for the software and its customers deploy the software on their own computer servers. Under the perpetual licensing model, customers may separately purchase contracts for maintenance and additional services. With its On Demand, customers subscribe to a service, and the Company provides access to the software as well as ongoing support services and management of the environment. The majority of its customers uses the On Premise model, although On Demand is increasing in acceptance. It faces significant competition from companies with product suites and greater brand recognition and resources than it has, as well as from smaller companies focused on specialized solutions or niche offerings related to a specific functionality or product area. The Company is subject to income taxes in the U.S. and in various foreign jurisdictions.
