Analysis of Inventory

Difficulty: Advanced


Inventory Accounting Policy

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is computed using standard cost, which approximates actual cost, on a first-in, first-out basis. Oracle evaluates the ending inventories for estimated excess quantities and obsolescence. This evaluation includes analysis of sales levels by product and projections of future demand within specific time horizons (generally six to nine months). Inventories in excess of future demand are written down and charged to hardware expenses. In addition, Oracle assesses the impact of changing technology to the inventories and Oracle writes down inventories that are considered obsolete. At the point of loss recognition, a new, lower-cost basis for that inventory is established, and subsequent changes in facts and circumstances do not result in the restoration or increase in that newly established cost basis. Inventories are included in prepaid expenses and other current assets in Oracle’s consolidated balance sheets and totaled $320 million and $398 million at May 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
