About Adobe (NASDAQ:ADBE) Stock

Adobe Inc. is a U.S.-based multinational software company focused on the publishing and content creation industries. It is the world's fifth-largest software company by market cap, with a capitalization near $155 billion at the start of 2023. Revenue in 2022 topped $19 billion. The company employs more than 26,000 people and has offices across the U.S. and India. The company ranks 339th on the Forbes Fortune 500 list and has ranked on Forbes' "100 Best Companies to Work for" for more than two decades. 

John Warnock and Charles Geschke founded Adobe Systems Inc. in Warnock's garage in 1982. Warnock and Gesche named the company after a creek that runs behind the residence and is also an allusion to the creative power of building with adobe mud bricks. The pair were ex-Xerox employees who left the company to concentrate on writing programming languages specifically for the publishing industry. Their work and investments from major technology moguls like Steve Jobs laid the foundation for the modern desktop publishing industry. Adobe held its IPO on August 20, 1986. 

The initial product focused on written content and publishing, but acquisitions over the following decades fleshed out the offerings. Now, the company is a leader in most forms of digital content creation, including graphics, photography, illustration, animation, multimedia and even motion pictures. A few key product lines include Photoshop for digitally enhancing and editing photographs (used by more than 90% of creative professionals), Illustrator, a suite of tools for digital illustrations, and Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is the home of PDF and easily transportable digital files. In 2022, consumers opened more than 400 billion PDFs with Reader.  

Over the years, the company has had to adapt to a changing technological environment due to a shift to the cloud and developing into a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business. Another major shift was the move into digital marketing software, which has ranked among the leading customer experience management firms on the market. 

Today, Adobe is in business as a diversified software company. It operates in three segments: digital media, digital experience and publishing and advertising. The digital media segment includes products and services geared toward content creation, including cloud-based services. This segment's primary offering is Creative Cloud, a suite of Adobe's cloud-based products. Creative Cloud is an AI-powered subscription service and accounted for more than 50% of its revenue in Q4 2022. 

The digital experience segment operates an integrated platform that connects businesses to software and services that enable them to create and manage customer experiences. This segment includes the document cloud, which hosts online document sharing and singing. The publishing and advertising segment provides software and services for technical document publishing, high-end printing and advertising needs.
