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:SGT.Germany
Seattle Genetics, Inc., a Delaware corporation was incorporated on July 15, 1997. It is a biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of monoclonal antibody-based therapies for cancer. On August 19, 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, granted accelerated approval of ADCETRISTM, or brentuximab vedotin, in two indications: (1) the treatment of patients with Hodgkin lymphoma after failure of autologous stem cell transplant, or ASCT, or after failure of at least two prior multi-agent chemotherapy regimens in patients who are not ASCT candidates, and (2) the treatment of patients with systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or sALCL, after failure of at least one prior multi-agent chemotherapy regimen. ADCETRIS is an antibody-drug conjugate, or ADC, comprising an anti-CD30 monoclonal antibody attached by a protease-cleavable linker to a microtubule disrupting agent, monomethyl auristatin E (MMAE), utilizing the Company's proprietary technology. The Company has a broad development strategy for ADCETRIS evaluating its potential application in earlier lines of therapy in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma and sALCL and other CD30-positive malignancies. In addition, it has four clinical-stage ADC programs, which consist of SGN-75, ASG-5ME, ASG-22ME and SGN-CD19A, as well as several preclinical product candidates, including SGN-CD33A and SGN-LIV1A. The biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries are characterized by rapidly advancing technologies, intense competition and a strong emphasis on proprietary products. Many third parties compete with the Company in developing various approaches to cancer and autoimmune disease therapy. They include pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, academic institutions and other research organizations. The FDA and comparable regulatory agencies in state and local jurisdictions and in foreign countries impose substantial requirements upon the clinical development, pre-market approval, manufacture, marketing and distribution of biopharmaceutical products.
