1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

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:NVO, AMGN, GILD, BIIB, CELG » details
Traded in other countries:NPM.Germany,
NPS Pharmaceuticals Inc was incorporated in Utah in 1986 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1992. The Company is a biopharmaceutical company, which is focused on the development of new treatment options for patients with rare gastrointestinal and endocrine disorders and serious unmet medical needs. The Company's clinical programs involve two proprietary therapeutic proteins to restore or replace biological function: GATTEX(tm) (teduglutide) and Natpara (parathyroid hormone 1-84 [rDNA origin] injection). GATTEX is its analog of GLP-2, a protein involved in the regeneration and repair of the intestinal lining, and is in Phase 3 clinical development for parenteral dependent (PN) short bowel syndrome (SBS). SBS is a highly disabling condition that results from surgical resection, congenital defect or disease-associated loss of absorption and the subsequent inability to maintain fluid, electrolyte, and nutrient balances on a conventional diet. Natpara is the Company's recombinant full-length human parathyroid hormone (PTH 1-84) that is in Phase 3 clinical development for hypoparathyroidism, a rare condition in which the body does not maintain normal calcium levels in the blood due to insufficient levels of parathyroid hormone. The Company is currently advancing registration studies for GATTEX and Natpara. The Company has collaborations or royalty agreements with a number of pharmaceutical companies. 'NPS, 'NPS Pharmaceuticals', 'GATTEX', and 'PREOS' are the Company's trademarks. The Company has competitors in both the U.S. and internationally including multi-national pharmaceutical companies, chemical companies, biotech companies, universities and other research organizations. Many of its competitors have drug products that have already been approved or are in development, and operate large, well-funded research and development programs in these fields.
