Total Quarterly Cloud Revenue $1.1 Billion – First Quarter Over One Billion Dollar Mark
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., December 15, 2016 – Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) today announced fiscal 2017 Q2 results. Total Revenues were $9.0 billion, flat in US dollars and up 1% in constant currency. Non-GAAP Total Revenues were $9.1 billion, up 1% in US 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 US dollars and up 83% in constant currency. Non-GAAP SaaS and PaaS revenues were $912 million, up 87% in US dollars and up 89% in constant currency. Total Cloud Revenues, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS), were $1.1 billion, up 62% in US dollars and up 64% in constant currency. Cloud plus On-Premise Software Revenues were $7.2 billion, up 2% in US 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 //www.oracle.com/investor.
