“Our fourth quarter results were very strong as revenue growth and earnings per share both substantially exceeded the high end of guidance,” said Oracle CEO, Safra Catz. “We continue to experience rapid adoption of the Oracle Cloud led by the 75% growth in our SaaS business in Q4.   This cloud hyper-growth is expanding our operating margins, and we expect earnings per share growth to accelerate in fiscal 2018.”

“We sold $855 million of new annually recurring cloud revenue (ARR) in Q4, putting us over our $2 billion ARR bookings goal for fiscal year 2017,” said Oracle CEO, Mark Hurd. “We also delivered over $1 billion in quarterly SaaS revenue for the first time. Next year is going to be even better. We expect to sell a lot more than $2 billion in new cloud ARR in fiscal year 2018.”

“AT&T has agreed to migrate thousands of existing Oracle databases containing petabytes of data plus their associated applications workloads to the Oracle Cloud,” said Oracle Chairman and CTO, Larry Ellison. “In the coming year, I expect more of our big customers to migrate their Oracle databases and database applications to the Oracle Cloud. These large-scale migrations will dramatically increase the size of both our PaaS and IaaS cloud businesses.”

The Board of Directors also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.19 per share of outstanding common stock. This dividend will be paid to stockholders of record as of the close of business on July 19, 2017, with a payment date of August 2, 2017.
