The following information amends and supplements Oracle Corporation’s definitive Proxy Statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on September 28, 2017 regarding the 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. This supplement should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined have the meanings provided in the Proxy Statement.

On October 27, 2017, Ms. Renée James was appointed as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Project Denver Holdings, LLC (“PD Holdings”), a joint venture among affiliates of Oracle, The Carlyle Group and MACOM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. (“MACOM”), formed to acquire MACOM’s Xgene data center server processor business. Oracle invested $46 million to acquire an ownership interest of less than 20% of PD Holdings’ total outstanding equity. Oracle is entitled to appoint one board member at PD Holdings out of six total board seats. Affiliates of The Carlyle Group, at which Ms. James is an Operating Executive, hold a majority interest in PD Holdings. Oracle’s Board approved the transaction upon recommendation of the Independence Committee. Ms. James was recused from the Board’s discussion and vote on these matters.

Effective October 27, 2017, Ms. James resigned from Oracle’s Compensation and F&A Committees. She continues to serve as a member of the Board. The Board has determined that Ms. James is no longer independent as defined by applicable NYSE listing standards and our Corporate Governance Guidelines. The Board continues to recommend a vote FOR the election of all of the nominated directors, including Ms. James.

Effective October 18, 2017, the Board appointed Secretary Leon Panetta to the Compensation Committee. Effective October 27, 2017, George Conrades became the Chair of the Compensation Committee and the Board appointed Jeffrey Berg to the F&A Committee. The Board has determined that Dr. Michael Boskin qualifies as an audit committee financial expert.

The table below reflects the updated Board committee membership as of October 27, 2017.
