GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

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.

Guru Investment Theses on Vantiv Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Vantiv Inc. - Jun 01, 2016

Further down the payments value chain sit merchant acquirers and processors, who act as the “sales and distribution” arm of the payments industry. Acquirers enable merchants to accept credit and debit card payments by connecting them to the various networks. Vantiv, Inc. (NYSE:VNTV) is a leading merchant acquirer and payment processor in the U.S. that directly benefits from growth in consumer spending and the secular shift from cash to electronic payments. The company is gaining share due to investments in integrated payments technology and e-commerce capabilities. A significant industry shift toward chip-based, EMV cards should drive continued strong organic growth, in our view.

Baron Funds Comments on Vantiv Inc. - Apr 26, 2016

Vantiv, Inc. (NYSE:VNTV) is a leading domestic payment processor. Its core systems enable merchants to accept and process credit and debit card payments. Vantiv operated as a business unit within Fifth Third Bancorp until it was spun off as a separate company in 2009 and went public in 2012. The company is the second-largest merchant acquirer in the U.S. with 19 billion processed transactions across 800,000 merchant locations in 2015. Vantiv’s diverse merchant base is weighted toward non-discretionary everyday spend categories, such as grocery and pharmacy, and it includes ten of the top 25 national retailers by revenue.



Vantiv also provides its merchant clients value-added services, such as solutions to enhance their security standards and solutions that enable the acceptance of cards in e-commerce applications. Vantiv also provides payment services to financial institutions, such as card issuer processing and payment network processing.



Vantiv directly benefits from growth in consumer spending and the secular shift from cash and checks to electronic payments. In 2015, Vantiv earned just $0.07 per transaction across 23 billion transactions without taking consumer credit risk. Vantiv’s integrated technology platform is differentiated from competitors’ multi-platform architectures, and it enables the company to quickly deploy new services while providing significant economies of scale and superior margins. We believe that Vantiv is gaining market share because of its investments in integrated payments technology and higher-growth distribution channels, which should also promote better retention rates and cross-sales of its value-added services.



We believe that a meaningful industry shift toward chip-based, EMV-compliant payment cards should help drive continued strong organic growth. The company generates significant free cash flow, which is being used for accretive acquisitions, share repurchases, and purchases of tax receivable agreements from pre-IPO shareholders that effectively reduce its cash tax rate. We believe that Vantiv enjoys significant competitive advantages from its single technology platform, large entrenched customer base, and unique exposure to the integrated payment market.

Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Vantiv Inc - Mar 17, 2015

We also initiated a position in Vantiv, Inc. (VNTV) as the company’s shares traded lower after a mild third quarter disappointment in the financial institution segment of its business. The shares then rebounded during the fourth quarter as investors focused on the long-term growth story and attractive valuation. We believe Vantiv has an attractive growth profile and should continue to generate high single digit organic revenue growth and mid-teens earnings per share growth.
