Adobe Shares Rise on Strong Revenue

Updated: Jun 20, 2017 5:06 PM ET

Adobe Systems reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit as the company benefited from more customers subscribing to its Creative Cloud package, which includes the popular photo-editing software Photoshop.

The company's shares were up 3.5% at $145.80 in after-market trading on Tuesday. If the gains hold, the stock is set to open at a record high on Wednesday.

Revenue in Adobe's digital media business, its largest by revenue, rose to $1.21 billion in the second quarter from $943 million, beating analysts' estimate of $1.17 billion, according to financial data and analytics firm FactSet.

The digital media segment includes the Creative Cloud business, which also consists of web video building application Flash.

The San Jose, California-based company has been benefiting from a shift to cloud-based subscription services, which have a more predictable revenue stream as opposed to revenue earned through the sale of packaged-licensed software.

Subscription revenue rose nearly 37% to $1.48 billion in the three months ended June 2.
