Adobe's net profit leaps 39 percent in Q3

Software giant Adobe Systems reported its net profit soared 39 percent during the third quarter.

Adobe Systems on Thursday reported its third quarter net profit rose 39 percent from a year ago on solid business execution.

The software maker reported net profit of US$144.9 million in the three months ending Sept. 2, up from $104.5 million during the same time last year. Revenue rose 21 percent to US$487 million, the company said.

In the fourth quarter, Adobe expects revenue of between US$490 million and US$510 million, and a gross margin of approximately 94 percent, the company said.

The fourth quarter targets do not factor in the pending acquisition of Macromedia, the company said.

The process of integrating Macromedia continues to go well, Adobe said. The transaction should close this fall, subject to appropriate regulatory approvals and other closing conditions.

Adobe and Macromedia shareholders have already approved the US$3.4 billion deal.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
