INTRODUCTION
Software Development Laboratories (SDL) was how Ed Oates, ***** *****, Bob Miner, Larry Ellison named what the world now know as Oracle the leader in database software (Bort, J. 2014). The idea for such company came about while Larry Ellison was scanning the IBM Journal of Research and Development and discovered a research paper that described a working prototype for a relational database management system (RDBMS). Showing it to coworkers Bob Miner and Ed Oates at Ampex, he soon learned that no company had committed to commercializing the technology. The trio realized there was tremendous business potential in the relational database, but they may not have realized that they would change the face of business computing forever. Together they founded the company that would become Oracle and developed the Oracle database, named after the CIA project the trio had worked on at the beginning of their association. Founded in 1977. Oracle from the largest multinational corporations to the corner coffee shop Oracle is the gold standard for database technology and applications in enterprises throughout the world. Some significant events in its history were in 1979 a break though of the first commercial SQL relational database management system was released. In1983 Oracle built on the C programming language, is the first RDBMS to run on mainframes, minicomputers, and PCs giving customers the ability to use the software in almost any enterprise computing environment and went public in 1986 on the NASDAQ exchange (NASDAQ: ORCL). Since then Oracle continue to enjoy a lot of success in the information technology and security arena to date (Defying Conventional Wisdom, 2007).OVERVIEW

With a world wide workforce of more than 122,000 employees, Oracle Corporation provides products and services that address all aspects of corporate information technology (IT) environments application, platform and infrastructure and are available to customers either via cloud computing or on-premises deployment models. Their products include database and middleware software, application software, cloud infrastructure software and hardware systems (Oracle Engineered Systems, servers, storage, networking and industry specific products), along with support and related services specifically (Oracle Corp Form 10-K Annual Report, 2014).

(Racle FAQs, 2013).STOCK INFORMATION
Year over year, Oracle Corporation has seen net income shrink from $11.0B USD to $9.9B USD despite relatively flat revenues. A contributing factor has been the increase in percentage of sales devoted to cost of goods sold, SGA expenses and income tax expenses (Financial Statements For Oracle Corp 2015).
Oracle has gradually shifted its positioning in the market to promote the catch-up game it’s playing in the cloud, but software and cloud revenues did not make a ton of progress overall, down 6% and up 2% in constant currency at $8.4 billion. The company showed better growth when just considering its cloud software-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service, which grew 29%, and cloud infrastructure, which grew 25%. Oracle’s legacy hardware business was down 4% at $1.4 billion (Konrad, 2015).

I need to do a financial analysis report, Ok. How much is
The steps in preparation of financial analysis report include the following: Select a publicly held company Select a benchmark firm to compare your company against. The benchmark firm is typically the largest competitor. Obtain the firm's balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows for the past 5 years. Download or read the firm's annual report. Go to: http://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/webusers.htm. Research EDGAR's database for additional SEC report filings: 8-k, 10-Q. The following table is the type of Excel or Word table that should be used to gather and report your ratio and financial performance data. Note the 5 financial diagnostic categories that should be used in your analysis. Financial Diagnostic Categories Chosen Company vs. Benchmark Competitor 1. Liquidity of Short-Term Assets Current Ratio Cash Ratio Quick Ratio Current Ratio Cash Ratio Quick Ratio 2. Long-Term Debt-paying Ability Debt Ratio Debt-equity Ratio Times Interest Earned Debt Ratio Debt-equity Ratio Times Interest Earned 3. Profitability Net Income / Sales (Profit Margin) Net Income / Assets (ROA) Net Income / Shareholder Equity (ROE) Net Income / Sales (Profit Margin) Net Income / Assets (ROA) Net Income / Shareholder Equity (ROE) 4. Asset Utilization / Management Efficiency Total Asset Turnover Inventory Turnover Measures Accounts Receivable Turnover Total Asset Turnover Inventory Turnover Measures Accounts Receivable Turnover 5. Market Measures Price / Earnings Ratio Earnings per Common Share Dividend Payout Price / Earnings Ratio Earnings per Common Share Dividend PayoutUse 2-3 ratios per diagnostic category. Place your ratio calculations in the table for your selected companies—primary company and benchmark competitor. Using 5 diagnostic categories, and 3 ratios to assess each category, results in 15 ratio measures per company that will be compared side by side. To validate your research, 5 years of data should be analyzed. The financial analysis report must be written properly. They must include a title page, a table of contents, and a reference page. For the final report, information sources from the web, etc. must be cited properly, using APA style. This means that every table that you cut and pasted or typed from the web must have a source at the bottom of the table AND that citing must also be included in a reference page at the end of the report. The parts of the research paper are discussed below. Your project should include: An overview of the corporation. Provide general information regarding the type of business, products and/or services, location of headquarters, name of CEO, number of employees, and countries of operation, etc. The latest financial statements Get the income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement, and the statement of owners' equity for the past fiscal year. Cut and paste them in your report. Do not forget to cite the source under each statement. If you cannot cut and paste them, you may have to type in the information in a table in your report. A summary of each financial statement Take each statement and state the key parts in words. Tell a story from each of the financial statements. For example, for the income statement, the story starts like, “Total Revenues in 2010 were $10 billion, while Cost of Goods Sold were $8 billion, leaving a gross profit margin of $2 billion, or 20 percent of total revenues….After taking out interest and taxes from EBIT, the net income was $0.5 billion, or 5 percent of total revenues.” Ratio calculation (include 5 major types of ratios. Refer to chapter 3, Analysis of Financial Statements) Organization of this section is based on the FIVE types of ratios listed in the text book.
