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.

RLJ Entertainment Inc is an entertainment company with a direct presence in North America, the United Kingdom and Australia and strategic sublicense and distribution relationships covering Europe, Asia and Latin America.

RLJ Entertainment Inc was incorporated in Nevada in April 2012. It is a entertainment company with a direct presence in North America, the United Kingdom and Australia and strategic sublicense and distribution relationships covering Europe, Asia and Latin America. It acquires content rights in various categories including, British episodic mystery and drama, urban programming, and full-length independent motion pictures. The Company develops, produces, and owns original programming through its wholly-owned subsidiary, APL, and its majority-owned subsidiary, ACL, in addition to fitness titles through its Acacia brand. It exploits its products through: (1) the licensing of original drama and mystery content managed and developed through its wholly-owned subsidiary, APL, and its majority-owned subsidiary, ACL (IP Licensing segment), as well as its fitness offerings; (2) wholesale exploitation through partners covering broadcast/cable, digital, online, and brick and mortar outlets (Wholesale segment); and (3) direct relations with consumers via proprietary e-commerce, catalog, and subscription-based SVOD channels (Direct-to-Consumer segment).
