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.

Heavy helicopters are also used to support search and rescue operations.

The Company's helicopters are primarily used to transport personnel to, from and between offshore installations, drilling rigs and platforms. The primary users of its helicopter services are integrated and independent oil and gas companies, including Anadarko Petroleum Corporation ("Anadarko"), Shell Exploration and Production Company (Shell), Exxon Mobil Global Services Co., and Petrobras America Inc. (Petrobras America), and the U.S. government. In addition to serving the oil and gas industry, the Company provides helicopters under dry-lease, air medical services, firefighting support and Alaska flightseeing tours, among other activities. The Company provides helicopters under contracts ranging from dry-leases, where only the helicopter is provided, to contracts providing full service operational support.
