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.

Its other customers include manufacturers of flat panel displays, solar panels, electronics, and many other sophisticated materials. The Company has four operating segments which are combined into three reporting segments as follows; Permeation Products and Services, Package Testing Products and Services, and Industrial Analyzer Products and Services and Other. Its permeation products consist of systems and services that measure the rate at which various gases and vapors transmit through a variety of materials. These products perform measurements under precise temperature, pressure and relative humidity conditions. It manufactures and sells three products in this group; headspace analyzers, leak detection equipment and gas mixers. Its headspace analyzer products are used to analyze the amount and type of gas present in the headspace of flexible and rigid packages, as applied to gas flushing in modified or controlled atmosphere packaging. It manufactures and distributes gas analysis and monitoring instrumentation used in applications such as oil and gas exploration, process gas analysis, industrial hygiene and safety, environmental air monitoring and indoor air quality. Its microbial detection products are designed to rapidly detect microbial growth in food and beverage samples. The Company manufactures and sells three products in this group; headspace analyzers, leak detection equipment and gas mixers. Its trademarks and service marks include the following; MOCON, APCHECK, AQUATRACE, AQUATRAN, AROMATRAN, AROMATRAX, BASELINE, BEVALERT, CALCARD, CAL-SMART, CheckPoint, CMV-2, COULOX, FLO SMART, GREENLI
