Oracle Corporation today announced fiscal 2012 Q3 GAAP total revenues were up 3% to $9.0 billion, and non-GAAP total revenues were up 3% to $9.1 billion. Both GAAP and non-GAAP new software license revenues were up 7% to $2.4 billion. Both GAAP and non-GAAP software license updates and product support revenues were up 8% to $4.1 billion. Both GAAP and non-GAAP hardware systems products revenues were down 16% to $869 million. GAAP operating income was up 11% to $3.3 billion, and GAAP operating margin was 37%. Non-GAAP operating income was up 8% to $4.2 billion, and non-GAAP operating margin was 46%. GAAP net income was up 18% to $2.5 billion, while non-GAAP net income was up 13% to $3.1 billion. GAAP earnings per share were $0.49, up 20% compared to last year while non-GAAP earnings per share were up 15% to $0.62. GAAP operating cash flow on a trailing twelve-month basis was $13.5 billion.

“Oracle is on track to deliver the highest operating margins in our history this year,” said Oracle President and CFO, Safra Catz. “Oracle can achieve these record margins as an integrated hardware and software company because we are focusing on high margin systems where hardware and software are engineered to work together.”

“Hardware revenue for our engineered systems grew 139% this quarter and going into Q4, we have a record pipeline,” said Oracle President, Mark Hurd. “In applications, Fusion in the Cloud is winning with great success against niche HCM cloud vendors in the US and worldwide. Our modular, integrated platform of 100 apps available in the cloud or on-premise is a key differentiator.”

“This past quarter Oracle delivered the hardware and software for our new extreme-performance Exalytics In-Memory Machine,” said Oracle CEO, Larry Ellison. “At the core of Exalytics is our new in-memory database technology capable of instantaneous big data analysis; questions are answered at the speed of thought. And unlike SAP’s Hana in-memory appliance, Exalytics runs your existing applications. Simply plug-in Exalytics and your existing Oracle Business Intelligence applications and Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management applications run much, much faster.”

The Board of Directors also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share of outstanding common stock. This dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on April 11, 2012, with a payment date of May 2, 2012.

“Safe Harbor” Statement: Statements in this press release relating to Oracle's future plans, expectations, beliefs, intentions and prospects, including statements regarding operating margin growth and the fourth quarter pipeline for engineered 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 recent recession and 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 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 March 20, 2012. Oracle undertakes no duty to update any statement in light of new information or future events.
