GAAP net income was up 9% to $2.5 billion, and GAAP earnings per share was up 19% to $0.86. Non-GAAP net income was up 2% to $2.9 billion, and Non-GAAP earnings per share was up 11% to $1.03.

Short-term deferred revenues were $10 billion. Operating cash flow was up 17% to $15.3 billion during the trailing twelve months.

“Q1 results were excellent as constant currency revenue beat guidance by $100 million with all revenue segments exceeding forecast, and Non-GAAP earnings per share beating guidance by $0.08,” said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. “Oracle’s two new cloud businesses, IaaS and SaaS, are now over 25% of our total revenue with an annual run rate of $10 billion. Taken together, IaaS and SaaS are Oracle’s fastest growing and highest margin new businesses. As these two cloud businesses continue to grow they will help expand our overall profit margins and push earnings per share higher.”

“Last week, Cloud Wars published an article entitled ‘Oracle Leapfrogs Google in Major Cloud Ranking’ summarizing an upcoming Gartner Report that reviews the leading cloud infrastructure companies,” said Oracle Chairman and CTO, Larry Ellison. “Please read the article and the Gartner Report for all the essential details. Oracle is delivering some truly innovative infrastructure services. Last quarter, we released the next generation of the world’s most popular open source database, MySQL, which now includes the HeatWave in-memory query accelerator, and the AutoPilot management tools. Many customers measured our new MySQL cloud service to be much much faster, less expensive, and easier to use than SnowFlake, Aurora, RedShift and other commonly used cloud databases. In response to requests from some of those customers, we decided to make MySQL HeatWave available on other clouds in addition to the Oracle Cloud.”

The board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.32 per share of outstanding common stock. This dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on October 12, 2021, with a payment date of October 26, 2021.
