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.

Business Description

Industry: Consumer Packaged Goods » Farm Products
Compare:BASFY, DD, SHECY, URALL, APD » details
Traded in other countries:LDE.Germany,
Landec Corporation is incorporated in California on October 31, 1986 and reincorporated as a Delaware corporation on November 6, 2008. The company and its subsidiaries design, develop, manufacture and sell polymer products for food and agricultural products, medical devices and licensed partner applications that incorporate Landec's patented polymer technologies. The Company has two proprietary polymer technology platforms: 1) Intelimer polymers, and 2) hyaluronan ('HA') biopolymers. The Intelimer polymer is a crystalline and hydrophobic polymer. The first feature of this polymer system is the way that it uses a temperature switch to control and modulate properties such as viscosity, permeability and adhesion when varying the materials' temperature above and below the temperature switch. A second unique feature of the Intelimer polymer materials is its unique controlled release properties. The polymer is able to deliver active ingredients with low or no burst, with a sustained release over periods of time. Finally, Intelimer polymers can be designed to contain up to 80% renewable materials from components of natural raw materials such as rapeseed oil, palm oil or coconut oil, and can be supplied in biocompatible and bioerodible forms. Its Hyaluronan Biopolymers is a non-crystalline, hydrophilic polymer that exists naturally within the human body, notably within the aqueous humor of the eye, synovial fluid, skin and umbilical cord. The viscoelastic properties and water solubility of HA make it ideal for medicinal applications where lubricity and protection are critical. Due to its widespread presence in tissues, its critical role in normal physiology and its high degree of biocompatibility, the Company believes that hyaluronan will continue to be used for an increasing variety of medical applications. Some of the Company's products are subject to extensive and rigorous regulation by the FDA, which regulates some of the products as medical devices and which, in some cases, requires Pre-Market Approval ('PMA'), and by foreign countries, which regulate some of the products as medical devices or drugs.
