News Facts

Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL) today announced that fiscal 2005 Q4 GAAP earnings per share were up 4% to $0.20, and non-GAAP earnings per share were up 36% to $0.26. GAAP net income for the quarter was up 3% to $1.02 billion, while non-GAAP net income grew 35% to $1.36 billion. GAAP revenues were up 26% to $3.88 billion while non-GAAP revenues were up 32% to $4.06 billion for the quarter.

Fourth quarter GAAP total software revenues were up 24% to $3.12 billion while non-GAAP total software revenues were up 31% to $3.30 billion. GAAP database and middleware new license revenues were up 16% to $1.26 billion for the quarter, while GAAP applications new license revenues were up 52% to $350 million for the quarter. GAAP services revenues were up 35% to $755 million.

"Oracle's database business delivered another strong growth quarter," said Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison. "The latest Gartner, IDC and Morgan Stanley database surveys all agree that Oracle is increasing database market share while IBM's DB2 database is in decline. This quarter marks an acceleration of that trend as more and more companies move their database applications off mainframes onto Oracle Grids." (See Investor Relations website

"The rapid integration of PeopleSoft into our business contributed to the strong growth in both applications sales and profits that we saw in the quarter," said Oracle President, Safra Catz. "The combination of increased organic growth plus a carefully targeted acquisition strategy have pushed Oracle's revenue and profits to record levels." "The global field organization turned in a stellar performance with 130% sequential growth in applications in the first full quarter past the PeopleSoft acquisition. Our emphasis on product specialization is producing benefits that we expect to continue in FY06," said Oracle President, Charles Phillips.

For the full fiscal year 2005, Oracle's GAAP earnings per share increased 10% to $0.55, and non-GAAP earnings per share increased 31% to $0.68. GAAP net income was up 8% to $ 2.9 billion, while non-GAAP net income grew 29% to $3.5 billion. GAAP revenue was up 16% to $11.8 billion, while non-GAAP revenue was up 19% to $12.1 billion.

GAAP database and middleware new license sales were up 13% to $3.3 billion, and GAAP applications new license revenues were up 28% to $785 million. GAAP service revenues were up 14% to $2.4 billion.

"Safe Harbor" Statement: Statements in this press release relating to Oracle's future plans and prospects are "forward-looking statements" and are subject to material risks and uncertainties. Many factors could affect our current expectations and our actual results, and could cause actual results to differ materially. We presently consider the following to be among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations: (1) Economic, political and market conditions could adversely affect our revenue growth and profitability. We may fail to achieve our financial forecasts due to such factors as delays or size reductions in transactions, unanticipated fluctuations in currency exchange rates, delays in product delivery, or a decline in our renewal rates for software license updates and product support. (2) We have an active acquisition program, and our acquisitions may not be successful, may involve unanticipated costs or other integration issues, or may disrupt our existing operations. (3) We cannot assure market acceptance of new products or new versions of existing products. (4) Periodic changes to our pricing model and sales organization could temporarily disrupt operations and cause a decline or delay in sales. (5) Intense competitive forces demand rapid technological advances and frequent new product introductions, and could require us to reduce prices. A detailed discussion of these factors and other risks that affect our business is contained in our SEC filings, including our most recent reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q, particularly under the heading "Factors That May Affect Our Future Results or the Market Price of Our Stock." Copies of these filings are available online from the SEC or by contacting Oracle Corporation's Investor Relations Department at (650) 506-4073 or by clicking on SEC Filings on Oracle's Investor Relations website at All information set forth in this release is current as of June 29, 2005. Oracle undertakes no duty to update any statement in light of new information or future events.
