Total Cloud Revenues Up 28% but Would Have Been Up 34% in Constant Currency

June 17, 2015

Total Revenues Down 5% to $10.7 Billion but Would Have Been Up 3% in Constant Currency

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/15 -- Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) today announced fiscal 2015 Q4 results. The results were significantly impacted by the strengthening of the U.S. dollar compared to foreign currencies. Total Q4 Revenues were $10.7 billion, down 5% but would have been up 3% without the strengthening of the U.S. dollar. Software and Cloud Revenues were $8.4 billion, down 6%, but up 2% in constant currency. Cloud software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) revenues were $416 million, growing 29%, and up 35% in constant currency. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) revenues were $160 million, growing 25%, and up 31% in constant currency. Hardware Systems Revenues were $1.4 billion, down 4%, but up 5% in constant currency.

Q4 Operating Income was $4.0 billion, and the Operating Margin was 37%. Non-GAAP Operating Income was $5.0 billion, and the non-GAAP Operating Margin was 46%. Net Income was $2.8 billion while non-GAAP Net Income was $3.5 billion. Earnings Per Share was $0.62, down 23%, and down 12% in constant currency, while non-GAAP Earnings Per Share was $0.78, down 14%, and down 5% in constant currency.

Short-term Deferred revenues were $7.2 billion, slightly down, but up 9% in constant currency compared with a year ago. Operating Cash Flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $14.3 billion.

For fiscal year 2015, Total Revenues were $38.2 billion, essentially unchanged, but up 4% in constant currency. Software and Cloud Revenues were $29.5 billion, up 1%, and up 5% in constant currency. Cloud SaaS and PaaS revenues were $1.5 billion, up 32%, and up 35% in constant currency. Cloud IaaS revenues were $608 million, up 33%, and up 36% in constant currency. Total Hardware System Revenues were $5.2 billion, down 3%, but up 2% in constant currency. Operating Income was $13.9 billion, and the Operating Margin was 36%. Non-GAAP Operating Income was $17.4 billion, and non-GAAP Operating Margin was 45%. Net Income was $9.9 billion, while non-GAAP Net Income was $12.5 billion. Earnings Per Share was $2.21, down 7%, but unchanged in constant currency. Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share was $2.77 down 3%, but up 2% in constant currency.

"We sold an astonishing $426 million of new SaaS and PaaS annually recurring cloud subscription revenue in Q4," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "We expect our rapidly increasing cloud sales to quickly translate into significantly more revenue and profits for Oracle Corporation. For example, SaaS and PaaS revenues grew at a 34% constant currency rate in our just completed Q4, but we expect that revenue growth rate to jump to around 60% in constant currency this new fiscal year."

"Coming into Q4, we forecast selling $300 million of new SaaS and PaaS annual recurring revenue," said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. "We dramatically beat that forecast by selling a cloud industry all-time-record amount of $426 million of new SaaS and PaaS business. That is a year-over-year bookings growth rate of over 200%. As our multi-billion dollar cloud business gets bigger, our SaaS and PaaS revenue growth rates are on their way up to 60% in constant currency. Compare this to our primary cloud competitors' whose own revenue growth forecasts are on their way down to 44% and 22%."

"We expect to book between $1.5 and $2.0 billion of new SaaS and PaaS business this fiscal year," said Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison. "That means Oracle would sell more new SaaS and PaaS business than salesforce.com plans to sell in their current fiscal year -- the only remaining question is how much more. Oracle's planned SaaS and PaaS revenue growth rate is around 60% in constant currency; salesforce.com has a planned growth rate of around 20%. When you contrast those growth rates it becomes clear that Oracle is on its way to becoming the world's largest enterprise cloud company."

The Board of Directors also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share of outstanding common stock. This dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on July 8, 2015, with a payment date of July 29, 2015.

"Safe Harbor" Statement: Statements in this press release relating to Oracle's future plans, expectations, beliefs, intentions and prospects, including statements regarding our expectations of future revenues and profits from our cloud business, our expected future bookings and the growth rates for such business, 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, geopolitical and market conditions, including the continued slow economic recovery in the U.S. and other parts of the world, can adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition, including our revenue growth and profitability, which in turn could adversely affect our stock price. (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, fluctuations in currency exchange rates, delays in delivery of new products or releases or a decline in our renewal rates for support contracts. (3) Our cloud computing strategy, including our Oracle Cloud SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and our new Oracle Cloud database as a service offerings, may not be successful. (4) If we are unable to develop new or sufficiently differentiated products and services, or to enhance and improve our products and support services in a timely manner or to position and/or price our products and services to meet market demand, customers may not buy new software licenses, cloud software subscriptions or hardware systems products or purchase or renew support contracts. (5) Our international sales and operations subject us to additional risks that can adversely affect our operating results, including risks relating to foreign currency gains and losses. (6) If the security measures for our software, hardware, services or Oracle Cloud offerings are compromised or if such offerings contain significant coding, manufacturing or configuration errors, we may experience reputational harm, legal claims and financial exposure. (7) 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. 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 http://www.oracle.com/investor.

(8) Income tax effects were calculated reflecting an effective GAAP tax rate of 25.4% and 20.5% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively, and an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 25.5% and 23.0% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively. The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was primarily due to the net tax effects of acquisition related items, including the tax effects of amortization of intangible assets.

(2) We compare the percent change in the results from one period to another period using constant currency disclosure. We present constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how our underlying businesses performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. To present this information, current and comparative prior period results for entities reporting in currencies other than United States dollars are converted into United States dollars at the exchange rates in effect on May 31, 2014, which was the last day of our prior fiscal year, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective periods.
(3) As of May 31, 2015, approximately $4 million in estimated revenues related to assumed cloud software as a service and platform as a service contracts will not be recognized for fiscal 2016 due to business combination accounting rules.
(4) As of May 31, 2015, approximately $2 million in estimated revenues related to assumed software license updates and product support contracts will not be recognized for fiscal 2016 due to business combination accounting rules.
(5) As of May 31, 2015, approximately $1 million in estimated revenues related to hardware systems support contracts will not be recognized for fiscal 2016 due to business combination accounting rules.
(6) Stock-based compensation was included in the following GAAP operating expense categories:

(7) Estimated future annual amortization expense related to intangible assets as of May 31, 2015 was as follows:
Fiscal 2016 $ 1,624
Fiscal 2017 995
Fiscal 2018 848
Fiscal 2019 742
Fiscal 2020 598
Thereafter 1,599
Total intangible assets, net $ 6,406
(8) Income tax effects were calculated reflecting an effective GAAP tax rate of 22.6% and 20.1% in fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively, and an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 23.6% and 22.5% in fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively. The differences between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates in fiscal 2015 and 2014 were primarily due to the net tax effects of acquisition related items, primarily the tax effects of amortization of intangible assets.

APPENDIX A
ORACLE CORPORATION
Q4 FISCAL 2015 FINANCIAL RESULTS
EXPLANATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

To supplement our financial results presented on a GAAP basis, we use the non-GAAP measures indicated in the tables, which exclude certain business combination accounting entries and expenses related to acquisitions, as well as other significant expenses including stock-based compensation, that we believe are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and our future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Compensation of our executives is based in part on the performance of our business based on these non-GAAP measures. Our non-GAAP financial measures reflect adjustments based on the following items, as well as the related income tax effects:

  • Cloud software as a service and platform as a service, software license updates and product support and hardware systems support deferred revenues: Business combination accounting rules require us to account for the fair values of cloud software as a service and platform as a service contracts, software license updates and product support contracts and hardware systems support contracts assumed in connection with our acquisitions. Because these contracts are generally one year in duration, our GAAP revenues generally for the one year period subsequent to our acquisition of a business do not reflect the full amount of revenues on these assumed cloud and support contracts that would have otherwise been recorded by the acquired entity. The non-GAAP adjustment to our cloud software as a service and platform as a service revenues, software license updates and product support revenues and hardware systems support revenues is intended to include, and thus reflect, the full amount of such revenues. We believe the adjustment to these revenues is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of our business. We have historically experienced high renewal rates on our software license updates and product support contracts and our objective is to increase the renewal rates on acquired and new cloud software as a service and platform as a service and hardware systems support contracts; however, we cannot be certain that our customers will renew our cloud software as a service and platform as a service contracts, software license updates and product support contracts or our hardware systems support contracts.

  • Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation expenses from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, and we believe such compensation contributed to the revenues earned during the periods presented and also believe it will contribute to the generation of future period revenues, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.

  • Amortization of intangible assets: We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangible assets from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. Amortization of intangible assets is inconsistent in amount and frequency and is significantly affected by the timing and size of our acquisitions. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to our revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to our future period revenues as well. Amortization of intangible assets will recur in future periods.

  • Acquisition related and other expenses; and restructuring expenses: We have excluded the effect of acquisition related and other expenses and the effect of restructuring expenses from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. We incurred significant expenses in connection with our acquisitions and also incurred certain other operating expenses or income, which we generally would not have otherwise incurred in the periods presented as a part of our continuing operations. Acquisition related and other expenses consist of personnel related costs for transitional employees, other acquired employee related costs, stock-based compensation expenses (in addition to the stock-based compensation expenses described above), integration related professional services, certain business combination adjustments including adjustments after the measurement period has ended and certain other operating items, net. Substantially all of the stock-based compensation expenses included in acquisition related and other expenses resulted from unvested options assumed in acquisitions whose vesting was fully accelerated upon termination of the employees pursuant to the original terms of those options. Restructuring expenses consist of employee severance and other exit costs. We believe it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our total operating expenses. Although acquisition related expenses and restructuring expenses generally diminish over time with respect to past acquisitions, we generally will incur these expenses in connection with any future acquisitions.
