Sun warned that it expected to report revenues of $2.58bn-$2.68bn in its latest quarter, compared with $3.78bn the year before.
Although 30% below the figures for the same quarter last year, Sun's estimate is only 14% Wall Street expected revenues of £3.1bn.
The Oracle acquisition is yet to be approved by US authorities investigating issues around Java licensing. The EU may also scrutinise the deal for the same reason.
