Q2 SAAS AND PAAS CLOUD REVENUES UP 81%, AND UP 89% IN NON-GAAP CONSTANT CURRENCY

Oracle Corporation (ORCL) today announced fiscal 2017 Q2 results. Total Revenues were $9.0 billion, flat in U.S. dollars and up 1% in constant currency. Non-GAAP Total Revenues were $9.1 billion, up 1% in U.S. dollars and up 2% in constant currency. Cloud software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) revenues were $878 million, up 81% in U.S. dollars and up 83% in constant currency. Non-GAAP SaaS and PaaS revenues were $912 million, up 87% in U.S. dollars and up 89% in constant currency. Total Cloud Revenues, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS), were $1.1 billion, up 62% in U.S. dollars and up 64% in constant currency. Cloud plus On-Premise Software Revenues were $7.2 billion, up 2% in U.S. dollars and up 3% in constant currency.

Operating Income was $3.0 billion and Operating Margin was 34%. Non-GAAP Operating Income was $3.8 billion and non-GAAP Operating Margin was 42%. Net Income was $2.0 billion while non-GAAP Net Income was $2.6 billion. Earnings Per Share was $0.48, while non-GAAP Earnings Per Share was $0.61. Without the impact of the U.S. dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies and an unforeseen Egyptian currency exchange loss, Oracle’s reported GAAP and non-GAAP Earnings Per Share would have been 2 cents higher.

Short-term deferred revenues were $7.4 billion, up 6% in U.S. dollars and up 8% in constant currency compared with a year ago. Operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $14.2 billion, up 9% from the prior year.

"For four consecutive quarters our Cloud SaaS & PaaS revenue growth rate has increased," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "As we get bigger in the cloud, we grow faster in the cloud. Our non-GAAP constant currency SaaS and PaaS growth rate is now up to 89%. This growth rate acceleration has driven our quarterly cloud revenue over the $1 billion mark. When salesforce.com crossed the billion dollar milestone their SaaS and PaaS subscription growth rate had slowed down to 36%, even after you include all their acquisitions."

"Oracle has now passed salesforce.com and become number one in SaaS cloud applications sales to customers with over 1,000 employees according to the latest IDC report," said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. "In other words, this year we are selling more enterprise SaaS than any cloud services provider in the world. We expect to book over $2 billion in new annually recurring cloud business this year alone. And, with the acquisition of NetSuite, we plan on being the #1 cloud applications service provider for companies with less than 1,000 employees as well."

"Our Database as a Service cloud revenue was $100 million for the quarter, driving growth in our overall database business," said Larry Ellison, Oracle Chairman and CTO. "We expect our Database as a Service and IaaS businesses will grow even faster than our skyrocketing SaaS business. A lot of people were taken by surprise when IDC ranked Oracle #1 in Enterprise SaaS, surpassing salesforce.com and overcoming their fifteen year head-start. Stay tuned. More surprises coming. I think we’re going to do even better with IaaS and the Oracle database in the cloud."

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 January 5, 2017, with a payment date of January 26, 2017.

"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 revenue growth and bookings in our cloud business overall, and specifically our IaaS and Database as a Service businesses, and our expectations regarding the positive effects of the acquisition of NetSuite on our business are all "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) Our cloud computing strategy, including our Oracle Cloud SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and data as a service offerings, may not be successful. (2) 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. (3) 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. (4) 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. (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) 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. (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 U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (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. All information set forth in this press release is current as of December 15, 2016. Oracle undertakes no duty to update any statement in light of new information or future events.

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, 2016, 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, 2016 compared with the corresponding prior year period decreased our revenues by 1 percentage point and operating expenses by 1 percentage point.

Income tax effects were calculated reflecting an effective GAAP tax rate of 24.3% and 17.6% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 and 2016, respectively, and an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 25.5% and 20.4% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 and 2016, respectively. The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rate in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was primarily due to the net tax effects on stock-based compensation expense and acquisition related items, including the tax effects of amortization of intangible assets.
The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rate in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was primarily due to the net tax effects of acquisition related items, including the tax effects of amortization of intangible assets.

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, 2016, 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, 2016 compared with the corresponding prior year period decreased our revenues by 1 percentage point, operating expenses by 1 percentage point and operating income by 1 percentage point.

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.

Income tax effects were calculated reflecting an effective GAAP tax rate of 23.6% and 20.8% in the first half of fiscal 2017 and 2016, respectively, and an effective non-GAAP tax rate of 25.5% and 22.6% in the first half of fiscal 2017 and 2016, respectively. The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rate in the first half of fiscal 2017 was primarily due to the net tax effects on stock-based compensation expense and acquisition related items, including the tax effects of amortization of intangible assets.
The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rate in the first half of fiscal 2016 was primarily due to the net tax effects of acquisition related items, including the tax effects of amortization of intangible assets.

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.

APPENDIX A

ORACLE CORPORATIONQ2 FISCAL 2017 FINANCIAL RESULTSEXPLANATION 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 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 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 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 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 support contracts.

Deferred sales commissions amortization: Certain acquired companies capitalized sales commissions associated with subscription agreements and amortized these amounts over the related contractual terms. Business combination accounting rules generally require us to eliminate these capitalized sales commissions balances as of the acquisition date and our post-combination GAAP sales and marketing expenses generally do not reflect the amortization of these deferred sales commissions balances. The non-GAAP adjustment to increase our sales and marketing expenses is intended to include, and thus reflect, the full amount of amortization related to such balances as though the acquired companies operated independently in the periods presented. We believe this adjustment to sales and marketing expenses is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of our business. We are including this non-GAAP adjustment commencing in the second fiscal quarter of fiscal 2017 as a result of our acquisition of NetSuite. Such adjustment was not material in prior periods.

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.
