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.

Business Description

Industry: Building Materials » Building Materials
Compare: » details
Aspen Aerogels Inc was incorporated in the State of Delaware. Its predecessor company was incorporated in Delaware in May 2001. In June 2008, the company completed a reorganization pursuant to which predecessor company merged with and into a newly formed Delaware corporation, Aspen Merger Sub, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of its predecessor company formed for the purpose of the reorganization. As the surviving entity to the merger, then changed its name from 'Aspen Merger Sub, Inc.' to 'Aspen Aerogels, Inc.' It is an energy efficiency company that designs, develops and manufactures innovative, high-performance aerogel insulation. Its customers use products to save money, conserve energy, reduce CO2 emissions and protect workers and assets. Its insulation is principally used by industrial companies that operate petrochemical, refinery, industrial and power generation facilities. Its aerogel products provide up to five times the thermal performance of widely used traditional insulation in a thin, easy-to-use blanket form. The company's products enable compact design, reduce installation time and costs, promote freight savings, simplify logistics, reduce system weight and required storage space and enhance job site safety. It manufactures products using proprietary process technology at facility in East Providence, Rhode Island. The company generates product revenue through the sale of line of aerogel blankets. It markets and sells products primarily through a direct sales force based in North America, Europe and Asia. The company specifically developed line of aerogel blankets to meet the requirements of a broad set of applications within the industrial, building and construction and OEM markets. The composition and attributes of aerogel blankets are as described below: Pyrogel XT: Pyrogel XT, selling product, is reinforced with a glass-fiber batting and has an upper use temperature of 650oC; Pyrogel XTF: Pyrogel XTF is similar in thermal performance to Pyrogel XT, but is reinforced with a glass- and silica-fiber batting; Cryogel Z: Cryogel Z is designed for sub-ambient and cryogenic applications in the industrial market. Cryogel Z is reinforced with a glass- and polyester-fiber batting and is produced with an integral vapor barrier; Spaceloft Subsea. Spaceloft Subsea is reinforced with glass- and polyester-fiber batting and is designed for use in pipe-in-pipe applications in offshore oil production. Building and Construction: Spaceloft: Spaceloft is reinforced with a glass- and polyester-fiber batting and is designed for use in the building and construction market; Spaceloft A2: Spaceloft A2 is reinforced with a glass-fiber batting and specifically designed to meet Euroclass A2 standards for fire properties of building and construction products; OEM: Pyrogel 2250: Pyrogel 2250 is reinforced with carbon-fiber batting and has an upper use temperature of 200oC. Pyrogel 2250 is thinnest and highest tensile strength product; Pyrogel
