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:M4V.Germany,
Ultrapetrol Bahamas Ltd, was originally formed, in conjunction with others, by members of the Menendez family with a single ocean going vessel in 1992, and were incorporated in its current form as a Bahamas corporation on December 23, 1997. It is a shipping transportation company serving the marine transportation needs of clients in the geographic markets. It serves the shipping markets for grain, forest products, minerals, crude oil, petroleum, and refined petroleum products, as well as the offshore oil platform supply market through its operations in the following three segments of the marine transportation industry. Its River Business, with 591 barges and 30 pushboats, is the largest owner and operator of river barges and pushboats that transport dry bulk and liquid cargos through the Hidrovia Region of South America, a large region with growing agricultural, forest and mineral related exports. Its Offshore Supply Business owns and operates vessels that provide critical logistical and transportation services for offshore petroleum exploration and production companies, in the North Sea and the coastal waters of Brazil. Its Ocean Business operates nine ocean-going vessels, including five Product Tankers that it employes in the South American coastal trade where it has preferential rights and customer relationships, two Capesize vessels, one Oceangoing Pushboat and one inland tank barge. The Company is also engaged in growing its businesses with an efficient and versatile fleet that will allow them to provide an array of transportation services to customers in several different industries. Its business strategy is to leverage its expertise and strong customer relationships to increase volume, efficiency, and market share in a targeted manner. For example, it has been increasing the cargo capacity of its existing river barges to help increase its efficiency and market share. In addition, it has commenced a program to replace the current engines in eleven of its river pushboats, and increase the pushing capacity of some of them, with new engines that will allow them to operate using less expensive heavy fuel and maximize the size of its convoys thus reducing costs per ton transported. In its Offshore Supply business, its main competitors in Brazil are the local offshore companies that own and operate modern PSVs. It faces competition in the transportation of crude oil and petroleum products as well as other bulk commodities from other independent ship owners and from vessel operators who mainly charter-in vessels to meet their cargo carrying needs. Its operations are subject to international conventions, national, state and local laws, and regulations in force in international waters and the jurisdictional waters of the countries in which its vessels may operate or are registered.
