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 LiLAC Group

Wally Weitz Comments on LiLAC Group - May 18, 2017

LiLAC Group (NASDAQ:LILA) is a tracking stock distributed by Liberty Global with respect to its businesses in Latin America and the Caribbean. LiLAC’s stock has struggled throughout the last year as management revealed additional unanticipated headaches with the May 2016 acquisition of Cable & Wireless Communications. After meeting with management, we believe the company understands the nature of the problem and is set to grow from this reset base. We anticipate that in the coming quarters, LiLAC will demonstrate the benefits they saw in this acquisition, beginning with identifying operating synergies for investors. Management further demonstrated their confidence in their revised outlook by announcing a $300 million stock repurchase authorization.



From Wally Weitz's first-quarter 2017 Partners III Opprtunity Fund shareholder letter.

Wally Weitz Comments on Berkshire Hathaway - Nov 09, 2016

LiLAC Group (NASDAQ:LILA) is a tracking stock distributed by Liberty Global during the third calendar quarter of 2015 designed to provide an avenue to tap growth opporutnities available in Latin America and the Caribbean. In May of 2016, Liberty Global closed its acquisition of Cable & Wireless Communications and attributed the operations to LiLAC Group. The consideration paid included new shares of both the Latin American and European tracking stocks. To compensate the European tracker stockholders, Liberty Global received a 67% intergroup stake in LiLAC. In an effort to remove this complexity and restore the Latin America tracker to full public ownership, Liberty Global announced on June 2 the intergroup stake would be distributed directly to shareholders. Shares were subsequently pressured, as many shareholders either sold short the new LiLAC shares before they were received or sold outright after the distribution. As the selling pressure abated, shares fell again after LiLAC missed earnings expectations in the most recent quarter.

LiLAC Group’s shares declined after LiLAC reported third quarter results that were below Wall Street’s expectations. This was the first quarter since LiLAC closed the acquisition of Cable & Wireless Communications. Outside investors largely overestimated the newly acquired asset’s near-term contributions to the combined entity due to different accounting treatments between the two companies and a lack of general information. Missing expectations has created near-term price pressure, but we anticipate that in the coming quarters LiLAC will demonstrate the benefits they saw in this acquisition, beginning with identifying operating synergies for investors.

From Wallace Weitz (Trades, Portfolio)'s third quarter 2016 Partners III Opportunity Fund.
