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:5GL.Germany,
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corp was incorporated in the State of Delaware. The Company is a provider of dredging services in the East, West, and Gulf Coasts of the United States. The Company also owns a specialty contracting service provider which primarily offers environmental and remediation services in the Northeast and Midwest U.S. areas. The Company has a 50% interest in Amboy Aggregates, a sand dredging operation in New Jersey and a 50% interest in TerraSea Environmental Solutions, (TerraSea) an environmental remediation services business. The Company operates in two reportable segments: dredging and environmental and remediation, formerly known as the demolition segment. Dredging generally involves the enhancement or preservation of navigability of waterways or the protection of shorelines through the removal or replenishment of soil, sand or rock. The U.S. dredging market consists of three primary types of work: capital, coastal protection and maintenance. Its bid market is defined as the aggregate dollar value of domestic projects on which the Company bid or could have bid if not for capacity constraints. The demolition segment is a major U.S. provider of commercial and industrial demolition services such as interior and exterior demolition for site preparation as well as environmental remediation. The environmental and remediation segment provides soil, water and sediment environmental remediation for the municipal and private party markets. Remediation involves the retrieval and removal of contamination from an environment through the use of separation techniques or disposal based on the quantity and severity of the contamination. Besides environmental remediation, the environmental and remediation segment performs industrial cleaning, abatement services and hazardous waste removal. Additionally, the historical demolition and site preparation businesses are a reporting unit of the environmental and remediation segment, but are classified as discontinued and are currently held for sale. Its fleet of dredges, material barges and other specialized equipment is most diverse in the U.S. The Company operates three principal types of dredging equipment: hopper dredges, hydraulic dredges and mechanical dredges. Hopper dredges are typically self-propelled and have the general appearance of an ocean-going vessel. The dredge has hollow hulls, or hoppers into which material is suctioned hydraulically through drag-arms. Once the hoppers are filled, the dredge sails to the designated disposal site and either (i) bottom dumps the material or (ii) pumps the material from the hoppers through a pipeline to a designated site. Hydraulic dredges remove material using a revolving cutterhead which cuts and churns the sediment on the channel or ocean floor and hydraulically pumps the material by pipe to the disposal location. There are two basic types of mechanical dredges: clamshell and backhoe. In both types, the dredge uses a bucket to exca
