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.

Zipcar, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware in January 2000. It operates car sharing network. Zipcar provides the freedom of 'wheels when you want them' to over 560,000 Zipsters. The Company operates its membership-based business in 14 major metropolitan areas and on more than 230 college campuses in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. It provides Zipsters with self-service vehicles in conveniently located reserved parking spaces in the neighborhoods where they live and work. The Company's members may reserve cars by the hour or by the day at rates that include gas, insurance and other costs associated with car ownership. The Company's service is simple and convenient: A prospective member joins at zipcar.com and chooses from several subscription plans. The new member will receive his or her Zipcard within days of signing up; The Zipster selects a specific vehicle in a particular location and reserves it for the desired period of time. The reservation, which can be made online, on a mobile device or over the phone, is sent by a wireless signal to the selected Zipcar; When the Zipster arrives at the vehicle in its designated parking space, the Zipcar recognizes the member's unique Zipcard and unlocks the doors; and The Zipster drives away. At the end of the trip, the member returns the Zipcar to its designated parking space and, using the Zipcard, locks the doors. The Company's self-service solution is enabled by its proprietary technology platform, which it specifically designed to manage the complex interactions of real-time, location-based activities inherent in a large scale car sharing operation. The Company's custom-designed technology supports a fully-integrated set of activities across its rapidly growing operations, including new user application and intake, reservations and keyless vehicle access, fleet management and member management. It offers a simple, effective and sustainable solution that provides Zipsters the freedom of on-demand access to a fleet of vehicles at any hour of the day or night, in their neighborhood or in any of its Zipcar cities and locations, without the costs or hassles of car ownership.
