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: REITs » REIT - Diversified
Compare:ARI, NLY, VNO, IVR, WSR » details
Traded in other countries:W8U.Germany,
PS Business Parks Inc was formed in 1990 as a California corporation under the name Public Storage Properties XI, Inc. In a March 17, 1998 merger with American Office Park Properties, Inc. or AOPP, the Company acquired the commercial property business previously operated by AOPP and was renamed PS Business Parks, Inc. Prior to the Merger in January, 1997, AOPP was reorganized to succeed to the commercial property business of PS, becoming a fully integrated, self-advised and self-managed REIT. The Company also manages 1.2 million rentable square feet on behalf of PS. It is a fully-integrated, self-advised and self-managed real estate investment trust or REIT that acquires, owns, operates and develops commercial properties, mainly multi-tenant flex, office and industrial space. The remaining common partnership units were owned by Public Storage or PS. The Company as the sole general partner of the Operating partnership has responsibility and discretion in managing and controlling the Operating Partnership. The Company is in the commercial property business, with 108 business parks consisting of multi-tenant flex, industrial and office space. The Company owns 16.5 million square feet of flex space. The Companys commercial properties typically consist of business parks with low-rise buildings, ranging from one to 48 buildings per park, located on parcels of various sizes and comprising from approximately 12,000 to 3.3 million aggregate square feet of rentable space. Facilities are managed through either on-site management or area offices central to the facilities. Parking is generally open but in some instances is covered. The tenant base for the Companys facilities is diverse. The portfolio could be bifurcated into those facilities that service small to medium-sized businesses and those that service larger businesses. Approximately 40.5% of in-place rents from the portfolio are derived from facilities that serve small to medium-sized businesses. The Companys policy of acquiring commercial properties might be changed by its Board of Directors without shareholder approval. It currently owns properties in eight states; it might expand its operations to other states or reduce the number of states in which it operates. The Company owns land which might be used for the development of commercial properties. The Company owns approximately 14.0 acres of such land in Dallas, Texas, 11.5 acres in Portland, Oregon and 6.4 acres in Northern Virginia as of December 31, 2013. The Companys interest in the Operating Partnership entitles it to share in cash distributions from, and the profits and losses of, the Operating Partnership in proportion to its economic interest in the Operating Partnership. The Companys properties compete for tenants with similar properties located in its markets mainly on the basis of location, rent charged, services provided and the design and condition of improvements.
