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.

Proassurance Corp was incorporated in Delaware in 2001 as the successor to Medical Assurance, Inc. in conjunction with its merger with Professionals Group, Inc. It is a holding company for property and casualty insurance companies. It provides professional liability insurance for healthcare professionals and facilities, professional liability insurance for attorneys, liability insurance for medical technology and life sciences risks, and workers' compensation insurance. The Company operates through multiple insurance organizations with four areas, namely professional liability insurance, medical technology and life sciences products liability insurance, and workers' compensation insurance and international property and casualty insurance and reinsurance. Its professional liability business is focused on providing professional liability insurance to healthcare providers and institutions and to attorneys and their firms. Its Medical Technology and Life Sciences business offers products liability insurance for medical technology and life sciences companies that manufacture or distribute products that are almost all regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Products insured include imaging and non-invasive diagnostic medical devices, orthopedic implants, pharmaceuticals, clinical lab instruments, medical instruments, dental products, and animal pharmaceuticals and medical devices. It also provides coverage for clinical trials and contract manufacturers. Its workers' compensation business consists of two major business activities, being Workers' compensation insurance coverages provided to employers, generally those with 1,000 employees or less.
