Oracle results pushed down by a stronger US Dollar

Oracle Corporation announced the fiscal third quarter (Q3 2016) results. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar compared to foreign currencies had a significant impact on results in the quarter.

2016-03-16 12:09:54 - by Bogdan Tudorache

Total Revenues were $9.0 billion, down 3% in U.S. dollars and up 1% in constant currency. Cloud plus On-Premise Software Revenues were $7.1 billion, down 1% in U.S. dollars and up 3% in constant currency.

Cloud software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) revenues were $583 million, up 57% in U.S. dollars and up 61% in constant currency. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) revenues were $152 million, down 2% in U.S. dollars and up 2% in constant currency. Total Cloud Revenues were $735 million, up 40% in U.S. dollars and up 44% in constant currency. Total On-Premise Software Revenues were $6.3 billion, down 4% in U.S. dollars and unchanged in constant currency.

Total Hardware Revenues were $1.1 billion, down 13% in U.S. dollars and down 8% in constant currency. Total Services Revenues were $793 million, down 7% in U.S. dollars and down 2% 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 $2.1 billion while non-GAAP Net Income was $2.7 billion. Earnings Per Share was $0.50, while non-GAAP Earnings Per Share was $0.64. Without the impact of the U.S. dollar strengthening compared to foreign currencies, Oracle's reported GAAP and non-GAAP Earnings Per Share would have been 4 cents higher.
Short-term deferred revenues were $6.9 billion, up 7% in U.S. dollars and up 11% in constant currency compared with a year ago. Operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $14.1 billion.

"Our Cloud SaaS and PaaS revenue growth rate accelerated to 61% in constant currency in Q3," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "This dramatic revenue increase drove our non-GAAP SaaS and PaaS gross margins up to 51% in Q3 as compared with 43% in Q2. Our cloud business is now in a hyper-growth phase. Our gross margins are climbing toward our target of 80%. These two factors will ignite substantial EPS and cash flow growth over Oracle's next few quarters."

"Our SaaS and PaaS gross deferred revenue grew 96% in Q3 – twice as fast as Workday and three times faster than Salesforce.com reported in their most recent quarters," said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. "Q3 SaaS and PaaS bookings were up 77% in constant currency. We added 942 new SaaS customers in the quarter, including several customers that switched from Workday HCM to Oracle Fusion HCM. We had more than 250 customers go live on Fusion SaaS HCM and Fusion ERP in Q3 alone. We now have over 11,000 SaaS customers with nearly 2,000 Fusion ERP customers – ten times more ERP customers than Workday claims to have."

"In absolute dollar terms, Oracle is already selling more enterprise SaaS and PaaS new cloud revenue than any other company in the world – including Salesforce.com," said Larry Ellison, Oracle Chairman and CTO. "We are growing much faster than Salesforce.com. We also have many more SaaS products than Salesforce.com. In some of our most important SaaS markets, such as ERP, HCM, Supply Chain and Manufacturing, Salesforce.com does not participate at all. By successfully competing in all of these markets, Oracle has the ability to sustain its high growth over a long period of time. That should make it easy for us to pass Salesforce.com and become the largest SaaS and PaaS cloud company in the world."

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 April 14, 2016, with a payment date of April 28, 2016.

Oracle also announced that its Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to an additional $10 billion of common stock under its existing share repurchase program in future quarters.
