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.

Traded in other countries:EP7.Germany
Evolution Petroleum Corporation, formerly known as Natural Gas Systems, Inc was incorporated on May 24, 1994 in Nevada. It is Petroleum Company engaged mainly in the acquisition, exploitation and development of properties for the production of crude oil and natural gas in United States. It acquires known, underdeveloped oil and natural gas resources and exploits them through the application of capital and technology to increase production, ultimate recoveries, or both. The Company pursues three specific initiatives: Enhanced oil recovery (EOR), using miscible and immiscible gas flooding; Conventional redevelopment of bypassed primary resources within mature oil and natural gas fields utilizing modern technology and its expertise; and Unconventional gas resource development, using modern stimulation and completion technologies. The Holt Bryant Unit is currently being redeveloped by the Operator, using CO2 enhanced oil recovery technology and a dedicated portion of the Operator's proved CO2 reserves in the Jackson Dome, located approximately 100 miles east of Delhi. Since closing of the Delhi Farmout, the Company has focused on developing projects in other initiatives, particularly through conventional redevelopment of bypassed resources in the Giddings Field using horizontal drilling methods, the leasing of unconventional gas shale projects in the shallower portion of the Woodford Shale Trend in Oklahoma and the leasing of Neptune, an oil infill drilling project in South Texas. The Company is funding its ongoing development from working capital resources and from net cash flows from its properties in the Giddings Field; cash flows from the Delhi Project also would be used to fund full development of its projects and other new projects. The Company's competitors include major integrated crude oil and natural gas companies and numerous independent crude oil and natural gas companies, individuals and drilling and income programs. Crude oil and natural gas drilling and production operations are regulated by various federal, state and local agencies.
