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•

China Digital TV Holding Co., Ltd. was incorporated as an exempted limited liability company on April 19, 2007 under the laws of the Cayman Islands. The Company conducts substantially all of its business through its operating subsidiary in the PRC, Super TV, and through N-S Digital TV, a PRC company that it controls through contractual arrangements. The Company is a provider of CA systems to the PRC's expanding digital television market. The Company's core products and services include: end-to-end CA systems, including smart cards, head-end software and terminal-end software; other digital television application software for television network operators; and set-top box designs. The Company's CA systems consist of software that is installed at the premises of the television network operator, or the head end; software that is installed in a set-top box at the subscriber's end, or the terminal end; and smart cards that are inserted into the set-top boxes. At both the head end and the terminal end, its CA systems are designed to interface easily with the software and hardware of as many other vendors as possible. This gives its customers maximum flexibility in selecting the components of their digital transmission systems, and allows it to cooperate with the other vendors in promoting each other's products to the network operators. It produces subscriber management system, or SMS, software, which could be used by television network operators to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of their subscriber management. The Company's SMS software is compatible with the CA systems of other vendors, and it sells it on a stand- alone basis as well as packaged with its CA systems. The Company's SMS software performs the following functions: maintains and updates a database of subscriber information; processes subscriber orders for new services; maintains billing, payment and authorization records and sends e-mail bills and receipts to subscribers; and processes subscriber requests to repair or replace defective or lost set-top boxes or smart cards. It produces a design, or operating system, for set-top boxes and licenses it to set-top box manufacturers. The Company's sophisticated design enables set-top box manufacturers to incorporate high-end features into their set-top boxes. It also provides its customers with computer chips for the set-top boxes that have been made to its specifications by third-party fabricators. The set-top box manufacturers generally sign a purchase order specifying the number of set-top boxes that they intend to manufacture using its design, and pay it a license fee and royalties based on such number. The Company's set-top box design does not include CA system terminal-end software. The Company's main customers are cable television network operators. The Company's main international competitors in the in the CA systems business are NDS Group, Irdeto Access BV and Kudelski SA. The Company's main domestic competito
