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: Biotechnology » Biotechnology
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:4NX.Germany,
NewLink Genetics Corp., was incorporated in Delaware on June 4, 1999. The Company is a biopharmaceutical company which is engaged in discovering, developing and commercializing novel immunotherapeutic products to improve cancer treatment options for patients and physicians. Its products include biologic and small‑molecule immunotherapy product candidates intended to treat oncology indications. Its product candidate, HyperAcute Pancreas cancer immunotherapy, or HyperAcute Pancreas, is being studied in a Phase 3 clinical trial in surgically‑resected pancreatic cancer patients that is being performed under a Special Protocol Assessment, or SPA, with the United States Food and Drug Administration, or FDA. The Company initiated this trial based on encouraging interim Phase 2 data that suggests improvement in both disease-free and overall survival. The Company has also received Fast Track and Orphan Drug designations from the FDA for this product candidate for the adjuvant treatment of surgically‑resected pancreatic cancer. It has three additional product candidates in clinical development, including its HyperAcute Lung cancer immunotherapy, or HyperAcute Lung, which is being studied in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial at the National Cancer Institute, or NCI, and its HyperAcute Melanoma cancer immunotherapy, or HyperAcute Melanoma, which is being studied in an investigator‑initiated Phase 2 clinical trial. To date, its HyperAcute product candidates have been dosed in more than 200 cancer patients either as a monotherapy or in combination with other therapies and have demonstrated a favorable safety profile. Its HyperAcute product candidates are based on its proprietary HyperAcute immunotherapy technology, which is designed to stimulate the human immune system. Its HyperAcute product candidates use allogeneic (non‑patient specific) cells from previously established cell lines rather than cells derived from the patient. The Company thinks its approach enables a simpler, consistent and scalable manufacturing process than therapies based on patient specific tissues or cells. Its strategy is to discover, develop and commercialize immunotherapeutic products for the treatment of cancer where the needs of patients are unmet by current therapies. The Company faces competition from other public and private biopharmaceutical companies, public and private universities and research organizations actively engaged in the discovery and research and development of products for cancer. The Company is subject to federal, state, local and foreign regulation.
