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

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) 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.

(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.

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.

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.

APPENDIX A 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.
