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.

Industry: Oil & Gas - E&P » Oil & Gas E&P
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:KOS.Germany
Kosmos Energy Ltd was incorporated pursuant to the laws of Bermuda as Kosmos Energy Ltd. in January 2011 to become a holding company for Kosmos Energy Holdings. It is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company focused on under-explored regions in Africa. The Company's current asset portfolio includes world-class discoveries and partially de-risked exploration prospects offshore Ghana, as well as exploration licenses with significant hydrocarbon potential onshore Cameroon and offshore Morocco. Its competitive strengths are: World-class asset portfolio situated along the Atlantic Coast Margin of West Africa, Well-defined production and growth plan, Significant upside potential from exploratory assets, Oil-weighted asset portfolio in key strategic regions, New ventures group focused on expanding its asset portfolio, Seasoned and incentivized management and technical team with demonstrable track record of performance and value creation & Strong financial position. Its strategy includes the following components: Grow proved reserves and production through accelerated exploration, appraisal and development, Apply its technically-driven culture, which fosters innovation and creativity, to continue its successful exploration and development program, Focus on rapidly developing its discoveries to initial production, Identify, access and explore emerging exploratory regions and hydrocarbon plays and Acquire additional exploration assets. There are a number of risks that should be considered before buying its common shares. These risks include, but are not limited to: It has limited proved reserves and areas that it decides to drill may not yield oil and natural gas in commercial quantities or quality, or at all; it faces substantial uncertainties in estimating the characteristics of its unappraised discoveries and its prospects; Drilling wells is speculative, often involving significant costs that may be more than its estimates, and may not result in any discoveries or additions to its future production or reserves. Any material inaccuracies in drilling costs, estimates or underlying assumptions will materially affect its business; A substantial or extended decline in both global and local oil and natural gas prices may adversely affect its business, financial condition and results of operations; Its operations may be adversely affected by political and economic circumstances in the countries in which it operates; It may be subject to risks in connection with acquisitions and the integration of significant acquisitions may be difficult; and its business plan requires substantial additional capital, which it may be unable to raise on acceptable terms in the future, which may in turn limit its ability to develop its exploration, appraisal, development and production activities.
