Oracle Earnings Beat - Revenue Light

June 17, 2020

Oracle reported fiscal 2020 Q4 and fiscal 2020 full year results. Total quarterly revenues were $10.4 billion, down 6% YoY and down 4% in constant currency compared to Q4 last year. Cloud services and license support revenues were $6.8 billion, up 1% YoY and 3% in constant currency. Cloud license and on-premise license revenues were $2.0 billion.

Q4 GAAP operating income was up 1% YoY to $4.3 billion, and GAAP operating margin was 41%. Non-GAAP operating income was down 2% YoY to $5.1 billion, and non-GAAP operating margin was 49%. GAAP net income was $3.1 billion, and non-GAAP net income was $3.8 billion. GAAP earnings per share was $0.99, while non-GAAP earnings per share was up 3% YoY to $1.20.

But, Wall Street was looking for $1.15 in adjusted earnings per share on $10.65 billion in revenue.

Short-term deferred revenues were $8.0 billion. Operating cash flow was $13.1 billion during the trailing twelve months.

For fiscal 2020, total revenues were $39.1 billion, down 1% YoY and flat in constant currency. Cloud services and license support revenues were $27.4 billion, up 3% YoY and 4% in constant currency. Cloud license and on-premise license revenues were $5.1 billion.

Fiscal 2020 GAAP operating income was $13.9 billion, and GAAP operating margin was 36%. Non-GAAP operating income was $17.4 billion, and non-GAAP operating margin was 44%. GAAP net income was $10.1 billion, while non-GAAP net income was $12.7 billion. GAAP earnings per share increased 4% to $3.08, while non-GAAP earnings per share was up 9% to $3.85.

"In Q4, non-GAAP earnings per share grew 5% in constant currency driven by strong performances in both our cloud infrastructure and cloud applications businesses," said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. "Leading the way was our Fusion Cloud ERP Suite that grew 35% in constant currency, and our Fusion Cloud HCM Suite grew 29% in constant currency. Our overall business did remarkably well considering the pandemic, but our results would have been even better except for customers in the hardest-hit industries that we serve such as hospitality, retail, and transportation postponing some of their purchases. Still, for the third year in a row, we delivered double-digit constant currency earnings per share growth in FY20."

"In Q4, we launched a vastly improved version of our Exadata Cloud@Customer service," said Oracle Chairman and CTO, Larry Ellison. "Exadata Cloud@Customer now enables our existing on-premise database customers to run the Oracle Autonomous Database in their own datacenter; previously, the Oracle Autonomous Database was only available in Oracle's Gen2 Public Cloud. Enabling all our on-premise database customers to upgrade and run Oracle's latest and best database technology in their own data center should dramatically accelerate the rate of adoption of the Oracle Autonomous Database…especially by our largest customers including banks and governments that are not currently planning to move their largest and most critical systems to a public cloud."

The board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.24 per share of outstanding common stock. This dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on July 15, 2020, with a payment date of July 28, 2020.
