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.

Affymetrix Core is divided into three business units with each business unit having its own research, development and marketing groups to better serve customers and respond quickly to the market needs. The three business units that form Affymetrix Core are; Expression, Genetic Analysis and Clinical Applications, and Life Science Reagents. Expression: This business unit develops and markets the Company's GeneChip gene expression products and services, and the QuantiGene line of low-to-mid-plex RNA measurement products; Genetic Analysis and Clinical Applications. This business unit develops and markets the Company's genotyping, such as the Axiom product line and clinical research applications, such as the CytoScan cytogenetics; Life Science Reagents; This business unit develops and sells reagents, enzymes, purification kits and biochemicals used by life science researchers. eBioscience; This reportable segment specializes in the development, manufacturing, marketing and distribution of research tools in the areas of flow cytometry, immunoassays, microscopic imaging and other protein-based analyses. The Company markets and distributes its products directly to customers in North America, Japan and major European markets. The Company is facing competition as existing companies develop new or improved products, and as companies enter the market with new technologies, such as next-generation sequencing. In the highly multiplexed genotyping and gene expression markets, existing competitive technologies include DNA sequencing, which the Company does not offer and is offered by companies such as Illumina, Inc., Life Technologies Corporation and Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. The Companys operations are subject to complex and stringent environmental, health, safety and other governmental laws and regulations.
