06:04 EDTIBMOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."

NRG Yield, Inc. (NYLD), through its subsidiary NRG Yield Operating LLC, has entered into an agreement with GE Unit (GE) GE Energy Financial Services to acquire its 25% interest in the Desert Sunlight Solar Farm in Riverside, CA for $285M subject to customary working capital adjustments, plus the assumption of $287.4M of non-recourse project level debt. The acquisition, which provides NRG Yield with a total ownership of 137.5 megawatts of operating solar capacity, will place NRG Yield into a partnership with subsidiaries of NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sumitomo Financial (SMFG), who are the 50% and 25% owners of Desert Sunlight, respectively. The transaction is expected to increase both the annual run-rate EBITDA by approximately $45M and cash available for distribution by approximately $22M by 2016. NRG Yield expects to close the transaction by June 30, 2015. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approvals by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and notice of the acquisition to the California Public Utilities Commission. With this acquisition, NRG Yield now owns nearly 600 megawatts of solar generation. NRG Yield is supported by its parent, NRG Energy (NRG), which owns and operates approximately 1.2 gigawatts of solar generation, thus implying a combined solar portfolio of 1.8 gigawatts.

07:06 EDTMSNoble CEO fires back at critics of company’s accounting practices, WSJ says
Noble Group (NOBGY) CEO Yusuf Alireza disputed allegations about the company’s accounting practices, particularly that it is hiding the true nature of its debt and improperly valuing its 13% stake in Australian coal miner Yancoal, the Wall Street Journal reports. In a letter to former longtime Morgan Stanley (MS) banker Michael Dee, Alireza said that the company’s evaluation of Yancoal is “reasonable and consistent with market practice and accounting policies” and that “any suggestion otherwise is ill-informed and factually incorrect,” the report says. “As an associate company, we must rely on a cash flow model to value our stake, which is consistent with market practice in the mining industry,” the Noble CEO added, the report says.
