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.

The Company generates revenue by licensing its inventions and solutions and providing services to market-leading companies. The Company has four business units: Memory and Interfaces Division, or MID, which focuses on the design, development and licensing of technology that is related to memory and interfaces; Cryptography Research, Inc., or CRI, which focuses on the design, development and licensing of technologies for chip and system security and anti-counterfeiting; Lighting and Display Technologies, or LDT, which focuses on the design, development and licensing of technologies for lighting and displays; and Mobile Technologies Division, or MTD, which focuses on the design, development and licensing of multi-media solutions. As of December 31, 2012, its semiconductor, lighting, display, security and other technologies are covered by 1,735 U.S. and foreign patents.
