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.

Tucows Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in November 1992 under the name Infonautics, Inc. In August 2001, it completed its acquisition of Tucows Inc., a Delaware Corporation, and it changed its name from Infonautics, Inc. to Tucows Inc. It is a distributor of Internet services, including domain name registration, security and identity products through digital certificates and email through its global Internet-based distribution network of Internet Service Providers, web hosting companies and other providers of Internet services to end-users. The Company together with its consolidated subsidiaries provides domain names, email and other services to resellers through its extensive reseller network and directly to consumers and small businesses through its retail and content groups. The Company's worldwide reseller network has grown to include more than 13,000 web-hosting companies, Internet Service Providers, or ISPs, and other resellers in more than 100 countries. The Company's main focus is serving the needs of this network of resellers by providing superior services, easy-to-use interfaces, proactive and attentive customer service, reseller-oriented technology and agile design and development processes. OpenSRS provides three main service offerings: Domain Services, Email Services and Other Services. Its Domain Services consist of its general Domain Service and its Personal Names Service. Its Email Service offers resellers the ability to outsource the often costly and problematic need to host email accounts for their end-users. The Company has a partnership with Verisign to provide resellers with wholesale pricing on an array of SSL certificate options that they can in turn sell to end-users, primarily businesses. The Company offers consumers and small businesses domain registration, email and other Internet services through Hover.com. Hover provides consumers and small businesses with bundled versions of OpenSRS' domain, email and personal names services. Tucows, Butterscotch, EPAG, Hover, OpenSRS, Platypus, Ting and YummyNames are registered trademarks of Tucows Inc. or its subsidiaries. The majority of the customers to whom it provides Reseller Services are generally either web hosts or ISPs. It competes with GoDaddy, Network Solutions, Register.com, eNom, Wild West Domains (a division of GoDaddy), Melbourne IT, Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Bluetie, MailTrust and CNET's Download.com. The Company might be subject to government regulation that might be costly and might interfere with its ability to conduct business.
