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: Engineering & Construction » Engineering & Construction
Compare:BOUYY, VCISY, GPOVY, MTZ, SGGKY » details
Pike Corp, formerly known as Pike Electric Corporation, was founded by Floyd S. Pike in 1945 and later incorporated in North Carolina in 1968. It reincorporated in Delaware on July 1, 2005, in connection with its August 2005 initial public offering (IPO). The Company is a provider of energy solutions for investor-owned, municipal and co-operative utilities in the United States. The Company's services include siting, permitting, engineering design, installation, maintenance and repair of power delivery systems, including renewable energy projects. The Company's planning and siting process leverages technology and the collection of environmental, cultural, land use and scientific data to facilitate successful right-of-way negotiations and permitting for powerlines, substations, pipelines and renewable energy installations. It provides design, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), owner engineer, project management, multi-entity coordination, grid integration, balance-of-plant and Thermal Rate solutions for individual or turnkey powerline, substation and renewable energy projects. It provides overhead and underground powerline construction, upgrade and extension services (predominately single-pole and H-frame wood, concrete or steel poles) for distribution networks and transmission lines with voltages up to 345kV, energized maintenance work for voltages up to 500kV and substation construction and service. The Company provides a total energy solution platform, including preliminary studies, planning, siting and permitting, engineering and design, construction, procurement and grid interconnection. Storm restoration involves the repair or reconstruction of any part of a distribution or sub-500 kV transmission network, including substations, power lines, utility poles or other components, damaged during snow, ice or wind storms, flash floods, hurricanes, tornadoes or other natural disasters. It is a recognized leader in storm restoration, due to its ability to rapidly mobilize thousands of existing employees and equipment within 24 hours, while maintaining a functional force for unaffected customers. It faces significant competition from subsidiaries or divisions of four national companies, approximately eight regional companies and numerous small owner-operated private companies. The Company's operations are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations including licensing requirements, building and electrical codes, permitting and inspection requirements applicable to construction projects, regulations relating to worker safety and health, including those in respect of OSHA and regulations relating to environmental protection.
