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.

Traded in other countries:DVG1.Germany
Verenium Corporation is incorporated in Delaware in December 1992 under the name Industrial Genome Sciences, Inc. In August 1997, it changed its name to Diversa Corporation. On June 20, 2007, the company was renamed Verenium Corporation. The Company is an industrial biotechnology company, which develops and commercializes high performance enzymes for use in industrial processes. Through the use of its tailored enzyme products, it can help industries replace expensive and oftentimes harmful chemical processes with more efficient and environmentally-friendly biological processes. Enzymes are proteins that act as biological catalysts. Without enzymes, biological processes would occur too slowly to sustain life. Enzymes have tremendous catalytic power, speeding up chemical reactions by as much as 1017 -fold, and can also be highly selective in the functions they perform. Currently, it markets nine commercial enzyme products. Non-drug biologically derived enzyme products are regulated in the United States based on their application(s), by either the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), or, in the case of plants and animals, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
