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:

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

Furiex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a Delaware Corporation. The Company is a drug development collaboration company that uses clinical development strategies to increase the value of partnered pharmaceutical assets and accelerate their development timelines. Its strategy is to invest in drug candidates that have a relatively straightforward path to regulatory approval and a large addressable market. Every drug candidate it reviews is subjected to its rigorous due diligence process by its team of experts who possess experience in all aspects of the drug development process. Currently, it has rights to several compounds in various stages of development and commercialization, including: Rights to royalties and regulatory and sales-based milestone payments from Takeda Pharmaceuticals Company Limited, for alogliptin and SYR-472. Takeda received regulatory and pricing approval in Japan during the second quarter of 2010 for alogliptin for the treatment of Type-2 diabetes. Takeda markets alogliptin in Japan under the name Nesina.
