Redwood Shores, Calif.—Dec
Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) today announced fiscal 2016 Q2 results. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar compared to foreign currencies had a significant impact on results in the quarter. Total Revenues were $9.0 billion, down 6% in U.S. dollars and unchanged in constant currency. Cloud plus On-Premise Software Revenues were $7.0 billion, down 4% in U.S. dollars and up 2% in constant currency. Total Cloud Revenues were $649 million, up 26% in U.S. dollars and up 31% in constant currency. Cloud software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) revenues were $484 million, up 34% in U.S. dollars and up 39% in constant currency. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) revenues were $165 million, up 7% in U.S. dollars and up 11% in constant currency. Total On-Premise Software Revenues were $6.4 billion, down 7% in U.S. dollars and unchanged in constant currency. Total Hardware Revenues were $1.1 billion, down 16% in U.S. dollars and down 10% in constant currency. Total Services Revenues were $861 million, down 8% in U.S. dollars and unchanged in constant currency.
Operating Income was $3.0 billion and Operating Margin was 33%. Non-GAAP Operating Income was $3.7 billion and non-GAAP Operating Margin was 41%. Net Income was $2.2 billion while non-GAAP Net Income was $2.7 billion. Earnings Per Share was $0.51, while non-GAAP Earnings Per Share was $0.63. Without the impact of the U.S. dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies, Oracle’s reported GAAP Earnings Per Share would have been 5 cents higher and non-GAAP Earnings Per Share would have been 6 cents higher.
Short-term deferred revenues were $7.0 billion, up 3% in U.S. dollars and up 9% in constant currency compared with a year ago. Operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $12.9 billion.
“We’re very pleased with our non-GAAP EPS of $0.63, beating the mid-point of guidance by 4 cents despite a stronger than expected currency headwind,” said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. “We grew our SaaS and PaaS revenue 38% in constant dollars this past quarter, and we expect that revenue growth rate to accelerate to nearly 50% in Q3 and close to 60% in Q4. This rapid increase in our cloud revenue will help drive our SaaS and PaaS cloud gross margins from 43% in Q2 to approaching 60% in Q4 and drive significant EPS growth in Q4.”
“It was a very strong growth quarter for our cloud business, with SaaS and PaaS bookings up 75% in constant currency and billings up 68% in U.S. dollars,” said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. “We did 100 Fusion HCM deals and over 300 Fusion ERP deals in the quarter. We now have more than 1,500 ERP customers in the cloud – that’s at least ten times more ERP customers than Workday.”
“We are still on-target to sell and book more than $1.5 billion of new SaaS and PaaS business this fiscal year,” said Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison. “That is considerably more SaaS and PaaS new business than any other cloud services provider including salesforce.com.”
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 6, 2016, with a payment date of January 27, 2016.

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, geopolitical and market conditions, including the continued slow economic recovery in Europe, parts of 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. (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, fluctuations in currency exchange rates, delays in delivery of new products or releases or a decline in our renewal rates for contracts. (3) Our cloud computing strategy, including our Cloud SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and Database as a Service offerings, may not be successful. (4) 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. (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) If the security measures for our software, hardware, services or Oracle Cloud offerings are compromised or subject to a successful cyber-attack, or if such offerings contain significant coding, manufacturing or configuration errors, we may experience reputational harm, legal claims and financial exposure. (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."
