Annual GAAP services revenues were $3.8 billion, up 33% compared to the year ago period.

"If you have the right strategy and the best technology it will show up in your results," said Oracle President and CFO Safra Catz. "The numbers speak for themselves. Annual revenue increased $3.6 billion to $18 billion, operating income increased $1.2 billion to $6 billion, and cash flow from operations increased $1 billion to $5.5 billion. It was a great year."

"Over the last twelve months Oracle's application new software license revenues grew at a rate of 32% while SAP's growth slowed to 10% in their most recent fiscal year," said Oracle President Charles Phillips. "Our strategy of combining innovation with acquisitions is clearly beating SAP's strategy of trying to build everything themselves using a 1970s-era proprietary programming language."

"Oracle's unique database grid architecture has enabled us to take market share from IBM," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. "Gartner's just published database research report confirms that Oracle's database market share has now increased to 47% while IBM's share declined to 21%. IBM has been unable to match the performance and reliability of Oracle database grids."

"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 through reductions in IT budgets and expenditures. (2) We may fail to achieve our financial forecasts due to such factors as delays or size reductions in transactions, fewer large transactions in a particular quarter, unanticipated fluctuations in currency exchange rates, delays in delivery of new products or releases, or a decline in our renewal rates for software license updates and product support. (3) We cannot assure market acceptance of new products or new versions of existing or acquired products. (4) 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. (5) Periodic changes to our pricing model and sales organization could temporarily disrupt operations and cause a decline or delay in sales. (6) 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 "Risk Factors." 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 26, 2007.
