Amendment of Sun Restructuring Plan

As previously disclosed in Oracle’s fiscal 2010 third quarter Form 10-Q, Oracle’s management had previously commenced its Sun Restructuring Plan (the “Sun Plan”) in connection with the integration of Sun Microsystems, Inc. (“Sun”), with estimated costs of $325 million, of which $235 million was recorded during the three and nine months ended February 28, 2010. On May 10, 2010, Oracle Corporation’s management extended its Sun integration plan to cover Europe and Asia and approved, committed to and initiated an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Sun Plan. The Amendment further reduces the size of Oracle’s combined workforce primarily in Europe and Asia, eliminates redundant costs resulting from the acquisition of Sun and reflects improved efficiencies in operations. Oracle estimates the additional costs related to this Amendment to the Sun Plan will be between $675 million and $825 million, the substantial majority of which will require the outlay of cash. Oracle expects that $550 million to $650 million of these additional costs will be restructuring charges related principally to employee severance costs, $85 million to $115 million will relate to facilities costs and $40 million to $60 million will relate to contract termination costs. The additional costs related to the Amendment to the Sun Plan are expected to be incurred through calendar 2011. Notifications to affected employees began on May 28, 2010.
