GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

Financial Strength

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.

Mac-Gray Corporation was founded in 1927 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1997. The Company generates the majority of its revenue from card- and coin-operated laundry rooms located in 43 states and the District of Columbia. Since its founding, Mac-Gray has grown to become the second largest laundry facilities management contractor in the United States. Through its portfolio of card- and coin-operated laundry equipment located in laundry facilities across the country, it provides laundry convenience to residents of multi-unit housing such as apartment buildings, condominiums, colleges and university residence halls, public housing complexes and hotels and motels. The Company's laundry equipment sales business sells and services commercial laundry equipment manufactured by Whirlpool Corporation, Dexter Laundry Company, American Dryer Corporation and Primus Laundry Company. This business sells commercial laundry equipment mainly to retail laundromats, hotels and similar institutional users that operate their own on-premise laundry facilities. The Company's main customer base is the multi-unit housing market, which includes apartments, condominium units, colleges and universities, and military bases. The Company also sells, services and leases commercial laundry equipment to commercial laundromats, multi-unit housing properties and institutions. The majority of its purchases of laundry equipment are from one supplier. The outsourced laundry facilities management industry is highly competitive, and the Company competes for long-term leases, both locally and nationally, with property owners and other operators in the industry. It competes based on customer service, reputation, facilities management rent rates, incentive payments and a range of products and services. The Company's businesses and operations are subject to federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations, including those governing the discharge of pollutants, the handling, generation, storage and disposal of hazardous materials, substances and wastes and the cleanup of contaminated sites.
