Software giant Oracle Corporation (NYSE: ORCL) reported strong earnings growth for the second quarter, riding on continued growth in the cloud business. However, the top line came in below the target set by analysts.
Second-quarter earnings, excluding one-off items, rose 12% from last year to $0.90 per share, which was 2 cents above the street consensus.
Helped by the stable demand for the company’s cloud and license support products, which account for about three-fourths of the total revenues, the top-line came in at $9.6 billion, up 1% year-over-year, but lower than the street estimate.
Cloud Services and License Support revenues were $6.8 billion, while Cloud License and On-Premise License revenues were $1.1 billion.
