Oracle Reports Q2 GAAP EPS Up 24% to 53 Cents; Q2 Non-GAAP EPS Up 18% to 64 Cents

New Software Licenses and Cloud Subscriptions Up 17%; Trailing Twelve Month Operating Cash Flow of $13.5 Billion

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL) today announced that fiscal 2013 Q2 total revenues were up 3% to $9.1 billion. New software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were up 17% to $2.4 billion. Software license updates and product support revenues were up 7% to $4.3 billion. Hardware systems products revenues were $734 million. GAAP operating income was up 12% to $3.5 billion, and GAAP operating margin was 38%. Non-GAAP operating income was up 9% to $4.3 billion, and non-GAAP operating margin was 47%. GAAP net income was up 18% to $2.6 billion, while non-GAAP net income was up 12% to $3.1 billion. GAAP earnings per share were $0.53, up 24% compared to last year while non-GAAP earnings per share were up 18% to $0.64. GAAP operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $13.5 billion.

Without the impact of the US dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies, Oracle's reported Q2 GAAP earnings per share would have been $0.01 higher at $0.54, up 26%, and Q2 non-GAAP earnings per share would have been $0.01 higher at $0.65, up 19%. Total revenues also would have been up 5%, and new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues would have been up 18%.

"New software license sales and cloud subscriptions grew 18% in constant currency," said Oracle President and CFO, Safra Catz. "Strong organic growth in our software business coupled with a focus on the highly profitable engineered systems segment of our hardware business enabled a Q2 non-GAAP operating margin of 47%. During the last four quarters operating cash flow was more than $13.5 billion -- $10.2 billion of which was returned to our shareholders as we repurchased nearly 350 million ORCL shares during that same twelve month period."

"Q2 performance was strong and broad based as all geographies reported double-digit revenue growth in new software license and cloud subscriptions," said Oracle President, Mark Hurd. "Applications, middleware and database all had double-digit growth in new software license and cloud subscriptions, with applications leading the pack with growth of over 30%. Our cloud offering of HCM, CRM and ERP applications plus the Oracle database and Java platform services is the strongest and most complete in the industry. Already approaching a one billion dollar run rate, our Cloud business will become much bigger over time."

"Sun has proven to be one of the most strategic and profitable acquisitions we have ever made," said Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison. "Sun technology enabled Oracle to become a leader in the highly profitable engineered system segment of the hardware business. I believe that products like Exadata and the SPARC SuperCluster will not only continue to drive improved profitability in our hardware business, by the end of this fiscal year, they will also drive growth in our hardware business."

On December 3, 2012, the Board of Directors declared an accelerated second, third and fourth quarter cash dividend totaling $0.18 per share of outstanding common stock. This accelerated dividend is intended by the Board to be in lieu of quarterly dividends Oracle would have otherwise announced with its quarterly earnings results for the second, third and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2013, and that would have been paid in calendar year 2013. This accelerated dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 14, 2012, with a payment date of December 21, 2012.

"Safe Harbor" Statement: Statements in this press release relating to Oracle's future plans, expectations, beliefs, intentions and prospects, including statements regarding our Cloud business becoming bigger over time and products like Exadata and SPARC SuperCluster driving profitability and growth in our hardware 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, political and market conditions, including the current European debt crisis, 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, 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) Our hardware systems business may not be successful, and we may fail to achieve our financial forecasts with respect to this business. (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) 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 and risks relating to compliance with international and U.S. laws that apply to our international operations. (6) Intense competitive forces demand rapid technological advances and frequent new product introductions and could require us to reduce prices or cause us to lose customers. (7) 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. 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, 2012, 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 November 30, 2012
    compared with the corresponding prior year period decreased our revenues
    by 2 percentage points, operating expenses by 1 percentage point and
    operating income by 1 percentage point.

(2) Acquisition related and other expenses for the three months ended
    November 30, 2012 included a net benefit of $145 million due to an
    acquisition related item.

(1) This presentation includes non-GAAP measures. Our non-GAAP 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.
    For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to comparable GAAP
    measures, the reasons why management uses these measures, the usefulness
    of these measures and the material limitations on the usefulness of
    these measures, please see Appendix A.

(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, 2012, 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 November 30, 2012, approximately $5 million in estimated revenues
    related to assumed cloud software subscriptions contracts will not be
    recognized for the remainder of fiscal 2013 due to business combination
    accounting rules.

(4) As of November 30, 2012, approximately $5 million and $2 million in
    estimated revenues related to assumed software support contracts will
    not be recognized for the remainder of fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2014,
    respectively, due to business combination accounting rules.

(5) As of November 30, 2012, approximately $5 million and $2 million in
    estimated revenues related to hardware systems support contracts will
    not be recognized for the remainder of fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2014,
    respectively, due to business combination accounting rules.

(8) Income tax effects were calculated reflecting an effective GAAP tax rate
     of 21.3% and 25.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012,
     respectively, and an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 23.5% and 26.3% in
     the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively. The
     difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates in the second
     quarter of fiscal 2013 was primarily due to the net tax effects of
     acquisition related items, including the tax effect of amortization of
     intangible assets. The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax
     rates in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 was primarily due to
     differences in jurisdictional tax rates and the related tax benefits
     attributable to our restructuring expenses.

(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, 2012, 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 six months ended November 30, 2012
    compared with the corresponding prior year period decreased our revenues
    by 3 percentage points, operating expenses by 3 percentage points and
    operating income by 4 percentage points.

(2) Acquisition related and other expenses for the six months ended November
    30, 2012 included a benefit of $306 million related to certain
    litigation and a net benefit of $129 million due to an acquisition
    related item.

(1) This presentation includes non-GAAP measures. Our non-GAAP 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.
    For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to comparable GAAP
    measures, the reasons why management uses these measures, the usefulness
    of these measures and the material limitations on the usefulness of
    these measures, please see Appendix A.

(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, 2012, 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 November 30, 2012, approximately $5 million in estimated revenues
    related to assumed cloud software subscriptions contracts will not be
    recognized for the remainder of fiscal 2013 due to business combination
    accounting rules.

(4) As of November 30, 2012, approximately $5 million and $2 million in
    estimated revenues related to assumed software support contracts will
    not be recognized for the remainder of fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2014,
    respectively, due to business combination accounting rules.

(5) As of November 30, 2012, approximately $5 million and $2 million in
    estimated revenues related to hardware systems support contracts will
    not be recognized for the remainder of fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2014,
    respectively, due to business combination accounting rules.

(7) Estimated future annual amortization expense related to intangible
     assets as of November 30, 2012 was as follows:

      Remainder of
       Fiscal 2013     $  1,140
      Fiscal 2014         1,972

(8) Income tax effects were calculated reflecting an effective GAAP tax rate
    of 22.9% and 25.8% in the first half of fiscal 2013 and 2012,
    respectively, and an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 23.5% and 26.4% in
    the first half of fiscal 2013 and 2012, respectively. The differences
    between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates in the first half of fiscal 2013
    were primarily due to the net tax effects of acquisition related items,
    including the tax effect of amortization of intangible assets, partially
    offset by the disproportionate tax rate impact of certain discrete items
    for the period. The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates
    in the first half of fiscal 2012 was primarily due to income tax effects
    related to our acquired tax exposures and the differences in
    jurisdictional tax rates and the related tax benefits attributable to
    our restructuring expenses.

(1) To supplement our statements of cash flows presented on a GAAP basis, we
    use non-GAAP measures of cash flows on a trailing 4-quarter basis to
    analyze cash flow generated from operations. We believe free cash flow
    is also useful as one of the bases for comparing our performance with
    our competitors. The presentation of non-GAAP free cash flow is not
    meant to be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income
    as an indicator of our performance, or as an alternative to cash flows
    from operating activities as a measure of liquidity.

(2) Represents capital expenditures as reported in cash flows from investing
    activities on our cash flow statements presented in accordance with
    GAAP.

(1) The sum of the quarterly financial information may vary from year-to-
    date financial information due to rounding.
(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, 2012 and 2011 for the fiscal 2013 and fiscal
    2012 constant currency growth rate calculations presented, respectively,
    rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective
    periods.

(1) The sum of the quarterly financial information may vary from year-to-
    date financial information due to rounding.

(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, 2012 and 2011 for the fiscal 2013 and fiscal
    2012 constant currency growth rate calculations presented, respectively,
    rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective
    periods.

                             ORACLE CORPORATION
                      Q2 FISCAL 2013 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:

  • New software licenses and cloud software subscriptions, 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 subscriptions 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 software subscriptions contracts and support contracts that would have otherwise been recorded by the acquired entity. The non-GAAP adjustment to our new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions 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 subscriptions and hardware systems support contracts; however, we cannot be certain that our customers will renew our cloud software subscriptions 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 changes in fair value of contingent consideration payable, and certain other operating expenses, 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.
