Oracle Doubles Dividend; Cloud SaaS Revenues Up 50%, Engineered Systems Up 45%




REDWOOD SHORES, CA — (Marketwired) — 06/20/13 — Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL) today announced that fiscal 2013 Q4 GAAP total revenues were unchanged at $10.9 billion, while non-GAAP total revenues were unchanged at $11.0 billion. Both GAAP and non-GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were up 1% to $4.0 billion. Software license updates and product support revenues were up 6% to $4.4 billion. Hardware systems products revenues were $849 million. GAAP operating income was up 9% to $5.0 billion, and GAAP operating margin was 46%. Non-GAAP operating income was up 1% to $5.6 billion, and non-GAAP operating margin was 51%. GAAP net income was up 10% to $3.8 billion, while non-GAAP net income was down 1% to $4.1 billion. GAAP earnings per share were up 17% to $0.80, while non-GAAP earnings per share were up 5% to $0.87. GAAP operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $14.2 billion.

Without the impact of the US dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies, Oracle-s reported Q4 GAAP earnings per share would have been approximately $0.01 higher at $0.81, up 19%; and Q4 non-GAAP earnings per share would have been approximately $0.01 higher. GAAP total revenues also would have been up 2%, non-GAAP total revenue would have been up 1%, and new software licenses and cloud software subscription revenues would have been up 2%.

For fiscal year 2013, GAAP total revenues were unchanged at $37.2 billion, while non-GAAP total revenues were unchanged at $37.3 billion. GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were up 4% to $10.3 billion, while non-GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were up 4% to $10.4 billion. GAAP software license updates and product support revenues were up 6% to $17.1 billion, while non-GAAP software license updates and product support revenues were up 6% to $17.2 billion. Hardware systems products revenues were $3.0 billion. GAAP operating income was up 7% to $14.7 billion, and GAAP operating margin was 39%. Non-GAAP operating income was up 2% to $17.6 billion, and non-GAAP operating margin was 47%. GAAP net income was up 9% to $10.9 billion, while non-GAAP net income was up 3% to $13.0 billion. GAAP earnings per share were $2.26, up 15% compared to last year while non-GAAP earnings per share were $2.68, up 9%.

“A record level non-GAAP operating margin of 47% in FY13 enabled us to generate over $14 billion in operating cash flow during the year,” said Oracle President and CFO, Safra Catz. “We returned almost 90% of that to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases while increasing the cash on our balance sheet to $32 billion. Consistently increasing our margins, cash flow and cash balance has allowed us to double our current quarterly dividend.”

“Oracle-s HCM Cloud, CRM Cloud and ERP Cloud grew 50% as we added over 500 new SaaS customers in Q4 alone,” said Oracle President Mark Hurd. “Our annualized SaaS revenue run rate is over $1 billion, making us a strong number two in cloud applications — we are larger than SAP and Workday combined. Furthermore, in Q4 our HCM cloud alone generated more SaaS revenue and added more new Fusion HCM customers than Workday added HCM and ERP customers combined in their most recent quarter.”

“Exadata, Exalogic, Exalytics, SPARC SuperCluster and our other engineered systems grew at a rate of 45% in Q4 as we took considerable market share from our primary competitor — IBM P-Series — which declined 32% in their most recent quarter,” said Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison. “We sold over 1,200 engineered systems in the quarter and over 3,000 during the year. Our fast growing engineered systems business is now more than one-third of our overall hardware business which is one of the reasons we believe hardware will be a growth story in Oracle-s FY14.”

Oracle also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share of outstanding common stock, reflecting a 100% increase over the current quarterly dividend of $0.06. Oracle-s CEO 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 July 12, 2013, with a payment date of August 2, 2013.

Oracle also announced that its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $12.0 billion of common stock under its existing share repurchase program in future quarters.

Oracle also announced that it has applied to list its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange under its current symbol “ORCL”. After careful consideration and deliberation, the Board of Directors of Oracle determined that the proposed transfer of Oracle-s common stock listing to the New York Stock Exchange would be in the best interests of its stockholders, customers and partners. Subject to the approval by the NYSE of Oracle-s listing application, Oracle expects that its common stock will begin trading on the NYSE on July 15, 2013. Until the transfer is completed, Oracle will continue to trade on the NASDAQ Stock Market under the symbol “ORCL”.

Statements in this press release relating to Oracle-s future plans, expectations, beliefs, intentions and prospects, including statements regarding hardware being a growth story in FY14 and when Oracle-s common stock will begin trading on the NYSE, 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.” 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 . All information set forth in this press release is current as of June 20, 2013. Oracle undertakes no duty to update any statement in light of new information or future events.

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 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.
