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.

Riverbed Technology, Inc. was founded on May 23, 2002 and develops innovative and comprehensive solutions to the fundamental problems of IT performance across wide area networks (WANs). Its products enable its customers to simply and efficiently improve the performance of their applications and access to their data over WANs, and provide global application performance, reporting and analytics. The Company's flagship Steelhead products enable its customers to improve the performance of their applications and access to their data across WANs, typically increasing transmission speeds by 5 to 50 times and in some cases by up to 100 times. Its Steelhead products are used at both ends of a WAN connection and are designed to be more easily and transparently integrated into existing networks than alternative products. Its products address a broad range of widely used software applications, are scalable across networks of all sizes and address the wide-area distributed computing needs of every major industry. The Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS) is its proprietary software platform that provides the core intelligence and essential functionality for its Steelhead products. The Company offers tiered customer support programs depending upon the service needs of its customers' deployments. Support contracts provide customers the right to receive unspecified software product upgrades and maintenance releases issued when and if available during the support period. Product support includes internet access to technical content, as well as telephone, internet and email access to technical support personnel. Support contracts typically have a one-year term. The Company outsources manufacturing of all hardware products. Its manufacturers provide it with limited warranties to cover general product failures, and its larger manufacturing partners provide specific quality control processes and replacement cycle time commitments. The WAN optimization market is highly competitive and continually evolving. Its primary competitors include Cisco Systems, Blue Coat Systems, Juniper Networks, Citrix Systems and F5 Networks. The Company also faces competition from a large number of smaller private companies and new market entrants. Its registered trademarks in the U.S. are Riverbed, Steelhead, Riverbed (stylized), RiOS, Think Fast, Cascade and Interceptor. Its registered trademarks in Japan are Riverbed, Steelhead, Riverbed (stylized) and Think Fast.
