I have a sentence

Action Oil's profits are disappointingly low this year.

I have lookep up action in some dictionaries but couldn't find any suitable meanings for it in this sentence. I also don't know the role of it in this case. I wonder if action profit is a phrase, but I couldn't find any examples of it.


The word 'Action' in that phrase simply forms part of the company's name, Action Oil.

Otherwise, you're correct to think that the sentence wouldn't make sense.
