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.

Traded in other countries:PRK.Germany
ProAssurance Corporation was incorporated in Delaware as the successor to its predecessor company, Medical Assurance, Inc. in connection with its merger with Professionals Group, Inc. in June 2001. It is an insurance holding company for wholly-owned specialty property and casualty insurance companies that mainly provide professional liability insurance for providers of health care services, and to a lesser extent, providers of legal services. The Company operates in the United States of America. The Company maintains multiple claims and underwriting offices to ensure that it has a local presence in the markets it serves. Its underwriting process is driven by individual risk selection. Its pricing decisions are focused on achieving rate adequacy. The Company assesses the quality and pricing of the risk, emphasizing loss history, areas of practice and location in making its underwriting decision. In performing their assessment, its underwriters might also consult with internal actuaries regarding loss trends and pricing and utilize loss-rating models to assess the projected underwriting results of certain insured risks. Its claims offices are located in Alabama; Delaware, Florida; Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio; Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Wisconsin so that it could provide localized and timely attention to claims. It offers its insured's a strong defense of claims that are non-meritorious or those could not be settled by reasonable, good faith negotiations. Many of these claims are resolved by jury verdict, and the Company engages experienced trial attorneys in each venue to handle the litigation in defense of its policyholders. The Company sells professional liability insurance mainly to physicians, dentists, other healthcare providers and healthcare facilities. It also has a small, but growing, book of legal professional liability business. The Company utilizes both direct marketing and independent agents to write its business. Its marketing of medical professional liability insurance is mainly directed to individual physicians, and those in smaller groups. The Company has a competitive advantage due to its financial stability, local market presence, service quality, size, geographic scope and name recognition, as well as its heritage as a policyholder-founded company with a long-term commitment to the professional liability insurance industry. It competes in a fragmented market with many insurance companies and alternative insurance mechanisms such as risk retention groups or self-insuring entities. Many of its competitors concentrate on a single state and have an extensive knowledge of the local markets. The main competitors in its market area are The Medical Protective Company and The Doctors Company. The Company is subject to regulation under the insurance and insurance holding company statutes of a number of jurisdictions including the domiciliary states of its insurance subsidiaries and o
