Following the results of the three-month reporting period closed on May 31, 2018, Oracle's net profit was $ 3.41 billion, or 82 cents per share, compared to $ 3.23 billion, or 76 cents per US vendor's security, a year earlier.

Earnings per share excluding one-off factors rose to $ 0.99 from $ 0.89 in the fourth quarter of the previous year. Oracle's quarterly revenue rose 3% to $ 11.25 billion.

On average, Wall Street experts predicted an adjusted profit of Oracle at $ 0.94 per share. The consensus forecast of analysts for the company's revenue was $ 11.2 billion.

Oracle changed the structure of the publication of indicators of certain business areas in the past quarter, including revenue indicators in the field of "cloud" services in a broader division of "cloud" services and licensing support. 

The revenue of this unit, which is key for Oracle, in March-May increased by 8% to $ 6.77 billion. The revenue from the sale of licenses, both cloud and for local PCs, decreased by 5% to $ 2.48 billion.

Revenues from the sale of IT equipment, such as servers, storage and networking equipment, remained virtually unchanged over the year, remaining at $ 1.1 billion. The services brought the company $ 883 million in quarterly revenue, down 1% year-on-year.

According to the results of the first quarter of 2019 fiscal year, Oracle expects adjusted earnings in the range of 68 to 70 cents, while Wall Street predicted at 72 cents per share.

As a result of the whole 2018 fiscal year, the company's net profit fell by 59% to $ 3.8 billion, revenue increased by 6% to $ 39.8 billion. Oracle stocks since early 2018 have fallen in price by 2%.
