Q1 FY20 GAAP EPS UP 11% TO $0.63 and NON-GAAP EPS UP 14% TO $0.81

Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) today announced fiscal 2020 Q1 results. Total Revenues were $9.2 billion, slightly higher in USD and up 2% in constant currency compared to Q1 last year. Cloud Services and License Support revenues were $6.8 billion, while Cloud License and On-Premise License revenues were $812 million.

GAAP Operating Income was up 4% to $2.9 billion and GAAP Operating Margin was 31%. Non-GAAP Operating Income was up 2% to $3.8 billion and non-GAAP Operating Margin was 42%. GAAP Net Income was $2.1 billion and non-GAAP Net Income was $2.8 billion. GAAP Earnings Per Share was up 11% to $0.63 while non-GAAP Earnings Per Share was up 14% to $0.81.

Short-term deferred revenues were $10.1 billion. Operating Cash Flow was $13.8 billion during the trailing twelve months.

“Non-GAAP earnings per share grew 14% in USD and 16% in constant currency,” said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. “As our low margin hardware businesses continue to get smaller, while our higher margin cloud business continues to get bigger, we expect Oracle’s operating margins, earnings per share and free cash flow all to grow. We’re off to a good start in FY20, and we expect this to be our 3rd consecutive year of double-digit non-GAAP earnings per share growth.”

“Our cloud ERP businesses, including both Fusion ERP and NetSuite ERP, grew 33% in Q1,” said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. “We now have over 6,500 Fusion ERP customers and over 18,000 NetSuite ERP customers. This continued strong growth has solidified our number one market leader position in cloud ERP worldwide, and our number one position in the overall applications business in North America.”

“Autonomy is the defining attribute of a Generation 2 Cloud,” said Oracle CTO, Larry Ellison. “Next week at our OpenWorld conference, we will announce more Autonomous Cloud Services to complement the Oracle Autonomous Database. The Autonomous Database is the most successful new product in Oracle’s history. We added more than 500 new Autonomous Database cloud customers in Q1, and we expect to more than double that in Q2.”

The Board of Directors increased the authorization for share repurchases by $15 billion. The Board of Directors also 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 October 10, 2019, with a payment date of October 24, 2019.
