Oracle Releases Earnings, Posts 2% Decline In RevenueBy: Chris Crum - September 21, 2012
Oracle posted its fiscal 2013 Q1 earnings report on Thursday. While profits were up 15%, revenues were down 2% to $8.2 billion, though GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions were up 5% to $1.6 billion. Non-GAAP new software licenses and cloud software subscriptions revenues were up 6% to $1.6 billion.
“Exadata, Exalogic, Exalytics and our other engineered systems grew more than 100% in the quarter,” said Oracle President Mark Hurd. “For the full year, we expect to double engineered systems sales to well over $1 billion. Oracle’s new cloud business is also approaching a $1 billion annual run rate. These two businesses will drive Oracle’s growth for years to come.”
“A little more than a week from now we will announce lots of enhancements to the Oracle Cloud,” said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. “There are more CRM, ERP and HCM applications as a service, and more Oracle database, Java and social network platform services. Our new infrastructure as a service is available in the Oracle Cloud and as a private cloud in our customers’ data center, with the unique ability to move applications and services back and forth between the two. Join us at Oracle OpenWorld for all the details.”
