REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/13 -- Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL) today announced that fiscal 2013 Q3 total revenues were down 1% to $9.0 billion. New software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were down 2% to $2.3 billion. Software license updates and product support revenues were up 7% to $4.3 billion. Hardware systems products revenues were $671 million. GAAP operating income was up 1% to $3.3 billion, and GAAP operating margin was 37%. Non-GAAP operating income was down 1% to $4.2 billion, and non-GAAP operating margin was 47%. GAAP net income was unchanged at $2.5 billion, while non-GAAP net income was down 1% to $3.1 billion. GAAP earnings per share were $0.52, up 6% compared to last year while non-GAAP earnings per share were up 5% to $0.65. GAAP operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $13.7 billion.

Without the impact of the US dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies, Oracle's reported Q3 GAAP earnings per share would have been $0.01 higher at $0.53, up 8%, and Q3 non-GAAP earnings per share would have been approximately $0.01 higher. Total revenues also would have been 1% higher and new software licenses and cloud software subscription revenues would have been 2% higher than reported.

"Our non-GAAP operating margin increased to a Q3 record of 47%, and we expect it to reach an all-time high for the fiscal year," said Oracle President and CFO, Safra Catz. "Both operating cash flow and free cash flow were at record levels for a Q3, with operating cash flow of $13.7 billion over the last twelve months."

"The Oracle Cloud is the most robust and comprehensive cloud platform available with services at the infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS) and application (SaaS) level," said Oracle President, Mark Hurd. "In Q3, our SaaS revenue alone grew well over 100% as lots of new customers adopted our Sales, Service, Marketing and Human Capital Management applications in the Cloud."

"This month we will begin deliveries of servers based on our new SPARC T5 microprocessor: the fastest microprocessor in the world," said Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison. "The new T5 servers can have up to eight microprocessors while our new M5 system can be configured with up to thirty-two microprocessors. The M5 runs the Oracle database 10 times faster than the M9000 it replaces."

"Safe Harbor" Statement: Statements in this press release relating to Oracle's future plans, expectations, beliefs, intentions and prospects, including statements regarding our non-GAAP operating margin reaching an all-time high for the fiscal year, the deliveries of servers based on our new SPARC T5 microprocessor and the configurations of the SPARC T5 servers and M5 systems, 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.

The difference between our GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates in the first nine months of fiscal 2012 was primarily due to income tax effects related to acquired tax exposures, the differences in jurisdictional tax rates and related tax benefits attributable to our restructuring expenses, and the disproportionate rate impact of discrete items for the first nine months of fiscal 2012.* Not meaningful ORACLE CORPORATION Q3 FISCAL 2013 FINANCIAL RESULTS CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEETS ($ in millions) February 28, May 31, 2013 2012 ------------- -------------ASSETSCurrent Assets: Cash and cash equivalents $ 16,101 $ 14,955 Marketable securities 17,306 15,721 Trade receivables, net 4,169 6,377 Inventories 211 158 Deferred tax assets 829 877 Prepaid expenses and other current assets 2,070 1,935 ------------- ------------- Total Current Assets 40,686 40,023Non-Current Assets: Property, plant and equipment, net 3,034 3,021 Intangible assets, net 6,662 7,899 Goodwill 26,102 25,119 Deferred tax assets 651 595 Other assets 2,315 1,670 ------------- ------------- Total Non-Current Assets 38,764 38,304 ------------- -------------TOTAL ASSETS $ 79,450 $ 78,327 ============= =============LIABILITIES AND EQUITYCurrent Liabilities: Notes payable, current and other current borrowings $ 1,250 $ 2,950 Accounts payable 361 438 Accrued compensation and related benefits 1,557 2,002 Deferred revenues 6,278 7,035 Other current liabilities 2,470 2,963 ------------- ------------- Total Current Liabilities 11,916 15,388Non-Current Liabilities: Notes payable and other non-current borrowings 18,502 13,524 Income taxes payable 3,775 3,759 Other non-current liabilities 1,467 1,569 ------------- ------------- Total Non-Current Liabilities 23,744 18,852Equity 43,790 44,087 ------------- -------------TOTAL LIABILITIES AND EQUITY $ 79,450 $ 78,327 ============= ============= ORACLE CORPORATION Q3 FISCAL 2013 FINANCIAL RESULTS CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF CASH FLOWS ($ in millions) Nine Months Ended -------------------------- February 28, February 29, 2013 2012 ------------ ------------Cash Flows From Operating Activities: Net income $ 7,119 $ 6,529 Adjustments to reconcile net income to net cash provided by operating activities: Depreciation 400 350 Amortization of intangible assets 1,789 1,790 Deferred income taxes 108 (200) Stock-based compensation 566 474 Tax benefits on the exercise of stock options and vesting of restricted stock- based awards 372 123 Excess tax benefits on the exercise of stock options and vesting of restricted stock- based awards (220) (71) Other, net 120 67 Changes in operating assets and liabilities, net of effects from acquisitions: Decrease in trade receivables, net 2,269 2,028 (Increase) decrease in inventories (48) 139 (Increase) decrease in prepaid expenses and other assets (241) 87 Decrease in accounts payable and other liabilities (912) (1,353) (Decrease) increase in income taxes payable (853) 259 Decrease in deferred revenues (809) (536) ------------ ------------ Net cash provided by operating activities 9,660 9,686 ------------ ------------Cash Flows From Investing Activities: Purchases of marketable securities and other investments (24,027) (29,745) Proceeds from maturities and sales of marketable securities and other investments 22,359 26,472 Acquisitions, net of cash acquired (1,592) (2,833) Capital expenditures (467) (431) ------------ ------------ Net cash used for investing activities (3,727) (6,537) ------------ ------------Cash Flows From Financing Activities: Payments for repurchases of common stock (8,204) (3,457) Proceeds from issuances of common stock 1,300 513 Payments of dividends to stockholders (1,433) (909) Proceeds from borrowings, net of issuance costs 4,974 -

APPENDIX A ORACLE CORPORATION Q3 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 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.
