Total Revenue Unchanged at $9.3 Billion but Up 6% in Constant Currency

March 17, 2015

Total SaaS, PaaS and IaaS Cloud Revenue Up 29% to $527 Million and Up 33% in Constant Currency

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/15 -- Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) today announced that fiscal 2015 Q3 Total Revenues were unchanged at $9.3 billion. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar compared to foreign currencies had a significant impact on results in the quarter. Without the strengthening of the U.S. dollar, Total Revenues would have been up 6% as measured in constant currency. Software and Cloud Revenues were up 1% to $7.2 billion, and up 7% in constant currency. Cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) grew 30% to $372 million, and grew 34% in constant currency. Hardware Systems Revenues were down 2% to $1.3 billion, but were up 5% in constant currency.

GAAP Operating Income was down 5% to $3.4 billion, and the GAAP operating margin was 36%. Non-GAAP Operating Income was down 4% to $4.2 billion, and the non-GAAP operating margin was 45%. Without the impact of the U.S. dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies, GAAP Operating Income would have been up 4% and the operating margin would have been 37%, while non-GAAP Operating Income would have been up 4% and the operating margin would have been 46%. GAAP Net Income was down 3% to $2.5 billion while non-GAAP Net Income was down 1% to $3.1 billion. In constant currency, both GAAP and non-GAAP Net Income were up 7%. GAAP Earnings Per Share was $0.56, down 1%, while non-GAAP Earnings Per Share was $0.68, unchanged from last year. In constant currency, both GAAP and non-GAAP Earnings Per Share would have been up 9%.

Short-term Deferred revenue was $6.4 billion, up 6% in constant currency compared with a year ago. Operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $14.5 billion.

"We beat the midpoint of my constant currency guidance on every single financial metric this past quarter," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "EPS was up 9%, Total Revenue was up 6%, Hardware Revenues were up 5%, Software and Cloud revenues were up 7%, and Total Cloud SaaS, PaaS and IaaS revenues were up 33%. Once you normalize for exchange rates, it was a very strong growth quarter for us."

"In Q3, we sold nearly $200 million of new SaaS and PaaS business as measured in annual recurring revenue," said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. "In Q4, we expect to sell over $300 million of new SaaS and PaaS annual recurring revenue. That means we have a real chance to sell more SaaS and PaaS new business this coming quarter than any other cloud services provider. I think our hyper-growth in the cloud comes as a big surprise to a lot of people."

"We are well on our way to selling over $1 billion of new SaaS and PaaS business in calendar 2015," said Oracle Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison. "Salesforce.com has announced that it also expects to add about $1 billion of new SaaS and PaaS business this year. So it's going to be a close race who sells more in the cloud this year, us or them. Stay tuned."

Oracle also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share of outstanding common stock, reflecting a 25% increase over the current quarterly dividend of $0.12. Larry Ellison, Oracle's Chairman of the Board, Chief Technology Officer and largest stockholder, did not participate in the deliberation or the vote on this matter. This increased dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on April 7, 2015, with a payment date of April 28, 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 from our SaaS and PaaS business and the competitive landscape 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 Software-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service and our new 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.

(1) 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. Movements in international currencies relative to the United States dollar during the three months ended February 28, 2015 compared with the corresponding prior year period decreased our revenues by 6 percentage points, operating expenses by 4 percentage points and operating income by 9 percentage points.

(3) As of February 28, 2015, approximately $3 million and $4 million in estimated revenues related to assumed cloud software-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service contracts will not be recognized for the remainder of fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2016, respectively, due to business combination accounting rules.
(4) As of February 28, 2015, approximately $2 million in estimated revenues related to assumed software license updates and product support contracts will not be recognized for each of the remainder of fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2016 due to business combination accounting rules.
(5) As of February 28, 2015, approximately $1 million in estimated revenues related to hardware systems support contracts will not be recognized for each of the remainder of fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2016 due to business combination accounting rules.

(8) Income tax effects were calculated reflecting an effective GAAP tax rate of 21.4% and 19.8% in the first nine months of fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively, and an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 22.9% and 22.3% in the first nine months of fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively. The differences between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates in the first nine months of fiscal 2015 and 2014 were primarily due to the net tax effects of acquisition related items, including the tax effects of amortization of intangible assets.

APPENDIX A
ORACLE CORPORATION
Q3 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.
