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.

Ensco PLC was formed as a Texas corporation in 1975 and was reincorporated in Delaware in 1987. The Company is a global offshore contract drilling company. It is a provider of offshore contract drilling services to the international oil and gas industry. It owns and operates an offshore drilling rig fleet of 77 rigs, including rigs under construction, spanning most of the strategic, high-growth markets around the globe. Its rig fleet includes seven drillships, 13 dynamically positioned semisubmersible rigs, seven moored semisubmersible rigs, 49 jackup rigs and one barge rig. The Company currently has a technologically-advanced drillship, a semisubmersible rig and three ultra-premium harsh environment jackup rigs under construction as part of its ongoing strategy to continually expand and high-grade its fleet. The Company provides drilling services on a "day rate" contract basis. Under day rate contracts, it provides a drilling rig and rig crews and receives a fixed amount per day for drilling a well. The Company's business consist of three reportable segments: Deepwater, which consists of its drillships and semisubmersible rigs capable of drilling in water depths of 4,500 feet or greater; Midwater, which consists of its semisubmersible rigs capable of drilling in water depths of 4,499 feet or less; and Jackup, which consists of its jackup rigs capable of drilling in water depths up to 400 feet. The offshore contract drilling industry is competitive with numerous industry participants. The Company's operations are affected by political developments and by laws and regulations that relate directly to the oil and gas industry, including laws and regulations that have or may impose increased financial responsibility and oil spill abatement contingency plan capability requirements.
