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:SLMNP.USA, SLH.Germany,
A Schulman Inc was organized as an Ohio corporation in 1928 and changed its state of incorporation to Delaware in 1969. It is a supplier of high-performance plastic compounds and resins. A. Schulman is a global plastics compounder, specializing in multi-component blends that include polyolefins, nylons, elastomers, ionomers and ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene). It operates in five lines of business namely engineered plastics, masterbatch solutions and distribution services, specialty powders and custom performance colors. Masterbatches are the ingredient in a successful application product formula. These concentrated compounds are combined with polymer resins by the Company's customers at the point-of-process to provide a material solution that meets needed performance criteria for a given product application. The masterbatch solutions product offerings include products designed to improve the performance, appearance, and processing of plastics for intended applications such as carbon black and white color concentrates, absorptive concentrates that reduce odors, and anti-static concentrates, among others; additive solutions to enhance performance such as antibacterial, ultra-violet ("UV"), anti-static, barrier (optimal heat and light transmittance), antioxidants (protection of foods) and processing (foaming agents, slip, process aids, release agents, and anti-blocking) properties; and application solutions that have a reduced impact on the environment such as those that minimize the use of plastics or incorporate the use of either recycled plastics or renewable-based polymers. The Film and packaging applications continue to be a primary focus for these products. The Company's film additives for food packaging are internationally renowned for their performance and cost benefits, and are commonly used in biaxially oriented films which are critical for protective packaging of shelf ready foods, snack foods, candy, as well as various consumer products and industrial applications. Many of the Company's masterbatch product offerings contain proprietary technology that plays a key role in providing application solutions that have a reduced impact on the environment. The Engineered plastics provide unique performance characteristics by combining high-performance polymer resins with various modifiers, reinforcements, additives and pigments, which result in a compound tailored to meet stringent customer specifications for durable applications. The Company's products are often developed to replace metal or other specialty polymeric materials. The distribution segment is engaged with the global polymer producers to assist in servicing market segments that are not easily accessible to these producers, or does not fit into these producers' core customer segment or supply chain. As a merchant, the Company buys, repackages into A. Schulman labeled packaging, and resells producer grade polymers to its customers, providing sales, marketing an
