TTM Operating Cash Flow Increases to Record $15.2 billion, TTM Free Cash Flow up 14%

Redwood Shores, Calif. – December 18, 2013

Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) today announced that both fiscal 2014 Q2 GAAP and non-GAAP total revenues were up 2% to $9.3 billion. GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were unchanged at $2.4 billion, while non-GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were down 1% to $2.4 billion. Both GAAP and non-GAAP software license updates and product support revenues were up 6% to $4.5 billion. Hardware Systems revenues, including hardware systems products and hardware systems support, were unchanged at $1.3 billion. Hardware systems products revenues were down 3% to $714 million. GAAP operating income was down 2% to $3.4 billion, and the GAAP operating margin was 37%. Non-GAAP operating income was down 1% at $4.2 billion, and the non-GAAP operating margin was 46%. GAAP net income was down 1% to $2.6 billion, while non-GAAP net income was up 1% to $3.2 billion. GAAP earnings per share were up 5% to $0.56, while non-GAAP earnings per share were up 7% to $0.69. GAAP operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $15.2 billion.

Without the impact of the US dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies, Oracle’s reported Q2 GAAP earnings per share would have been up 7% and non-GAAP earnings per share would have been up 9%. GAAP and non-GAAP total revenues also would have been up 3%; GAAP and non-GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues would have been up 1%. Hardware Systems revenues, including hardware systems products and hardware systems support, would have been up 2%.

“We’re very pleased with our results as new software license and cloud software subscription revenue grew 1% in constant currency over the 18% growth reported last year,” said Oracle President and CFO, Safra Catz. “Software revenue grew 5% helping drive our tremendous cash flow and for the first time ever, we generated more than $15 billion in operating cash flow over four quarters.”

“Our hardware business, including support, grew 2% in constant currency this quarter driven by double-digit revenue growth in Exadata, Exalogic and Exalytics,” said Oracle President Mark Hurd. “The SPARC SuperCluster and Big Data Appliance were even better, with triple-digit growth and we expect hardware products will show growth next quarter.”

“Our billion dollar SaaS business delivered overall bookings growth of 35% in the quarter,” said Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison. “Our fastest growing cloud services were Fusion Human Capital Management and Fusion Salesforce Automation, each growing bookings at a triple-digit rate.”

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share of outstanding common stock. This dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on January 7, 2014, with a payment date of January 28, 2014.

Statements in this press release relating to Oracle's future plans, expectations, beliefs, intentions and prospects, including statements regarding expected future growth in Oracle’s 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 economic crisis and slowing economic conditions in 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, unanticipated 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 hardware systems revenues and profitability could decline further, 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. (6) Our periodic workforce restructurings, including reorganizations of our sales force, can be disruptive. (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."
