o affected by the timing of the availability of tax forms from taxing agencies and the ability of those agencies to receive electronic tax return submissions. Delays in the availability of tax forms or the ability of taxing agencies to receive submissions can cause revenue to shift between its fiscal quarters. These seasonal patterns mean that the company’s total net revenue is usually highest during its second quarter ending January 31 and third quarter ending April 30. The company typically report losses in its first quarter ending October 31 and fourth quarter ending July 31. During these quarters, revenue from its tax businesses is minimal while core operating expenses, such as research and development continue at relatively consistent levels. Marketing, Sales and Distribution Channels The company’s primary target customers are small businesses, consumers, and accounting professionals. To sell its products and services to small businesses, consumers, and accounting professionals, the company uses various marketing programs to generate software orders, stimulate demand, and generally maintain and increase customer awareness of its product portfolio. These programs include Web marketing and targeted advertising, such as search engine optimization and purchasing key words from major search engine companies; placing and promoting its mobile applications in proprietary online stores; direct-response mail and email campaigns; telephone solicitations; newspaper, magazine, billboard, radio and television advertising; social media campaigns; and coordinated promotional offers with major retailers. The company’s consumer and small business customers increasingly use the Internet and mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to research products and services. The company sells many of its products and services for small businesses, consumers, and accounting professionals directly through its Websites and call centers. The company sells its QuickBooks, TurboTax, and Quicken desktop software, as well as payroll services and merchant credit card payment processing services at retail locations across the United States. It sells these products and services directly and through distributors to office supply superstores, warehouse clubs, consumer electronics retailers, general mass merchandisers, online retailers, and catalogs. In Canada and other international markets it also relies on distributors and other third parties who sell products into the retail channel. The company distributes many of its offerings for mobile devices through proprietary online stores that provide applications for specific devices. These include the Apple App Store, which provides apps for the Apple iPhone and iPad, and Google’s Play Store, which provides apps for Android-compatible smartphones and tablets. The company has strategies to address the alliance partner, solution provider, and personal computer hardware manufacturer channels. It sells its consumer and small business products and services through selected alliance partners, primarily banks, credit unions, and securities and investment firms. Intellectual Property The company has various registered trademarks that include Intuit, QuickBooks, TurboTax, Lacerte, ProSeries, Quicken, and Mint. It has registered these and other trademarks and service marks in the United States and, depending on the relevance of each brand to other markets, in many foreign countries. Most registrations can be renewed perpetually at 10-year intervals. The company also licenses intellectual property from third parties for use in its products. Competition Small Business: The company’s small business products and services face competitive challenges from companies, such as The Sage Group plc. In its payroll business, the company competes directly with Automatic Data Processing, Inc.; and Paychex. In its merchant services business, it competes directly with large financial institutions, such as Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, and Bank of America. The company also competes with payment processors, including First Data Corporation, Elavon, Global Payments, FIS-Certegy, PayPal, and Square
