GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

Financial Strength : 6/10

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:GV3.Germany,
Given Imaging, Ltd. was incorporated under the laws of the State of Israel on January 4, 1998. The Company develops, manufactures and markets diagnostic products for the visualization and detection of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. The Company pioneered capsule endoscopy, a proprietary approach to visual examination of the gastrointestinal tract through the use of a miniaturized video camera contained in an ingestible disposable capsule. The principal product, which incorporates the core technology, is thePillCam platform, a proprietary wireless imaging system that uses disposable video capsules. The PillCam capsules can be easily ingested by patients and move naturally through the gastrointestinal tract without discomfort while wirelessly transmitting to a portable recorder, enabling the gastroenterologist to view high quality video, images and data on a computer workstation, utilizing its proprietary RAPID software. Since November 2004, the Company has also marketed and sold the PillCam ESO capsule for visualizing the esophagus. After receiving the first CE mark in 2007, the Company began selling the first generation of PillCam COLON capsule in Europe. In 2010, the Company began limited marketing and sales of second-generation PillCam COLON capsule in European countries, following receipt of the CE mark for this capsule in late 2009. The Company has also developed the agile patency capsule and system, which is a dissolvable capsule that enables physicians to determine whether there are obstructions or strictures in the gastrointestinal tract that may prevent passage of its PillCam SB capsule.
