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:NVV.Germany,
Novavax Inc was incorporated in 1987 under the laws of the State of Delaware. The Company is a clinical-stage Biopharmaceutical company focused on creating differentiated, value- upon current preventive options for a range of infectious diseases. The Company manages its business as one operating segment: developing recombinant vaccines. The Company's technology platform is based on proprietary recombinant vaccine technology that includes virus-like particles ('VLPs') and recombinant nanoparticle vaccines combined with a single-use bioprocessing production system. These vaccine candidates are genetically engineered three-dimensional nanostructures that incorporate immunologically important recombinant proteins. Its influenza VLPs contain three of the structural virus proteins that are important for fighting influenza: hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA), both of which stimulate the body to produce antibodies that neutralize the influenza virus and prevent its spread through the cells in the respiratory tract, and matrix 1 (M1), which stimulates cytotoxic T lymphocytes to kill cells that may already be infected. The Company's product pipeline targets a variety of infectious diseases and its vaccine candidates are currently in or have completed clinical trials that target pandemic influenza (H5N1), seasonal influenza and respiratory syncytial virus ('RSV'). The Company's main competitors includes sanofi pasteur, Inc, MedImmune, LLC (a subsidiary of AstraZeneca PLC), GlaxoSmithKline plc, Novartis, Inc., and Merck & Co., Inc., Protein Sciences Corporation. The Company is subject to regulation under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Environmental Protection Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and other present and potential federal, state or local regulations.
