Adobe is the third piece in the tech triad that flourished during the pandemic.

As the pandemic pushed the world to work from home, tech companies benefited. Alongside Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and others, Adobe Inc. was pushed higher by the need to use digital documents, which later translated in numbers.

The company released its financial report, and the revenue rose to $3.13 billion from last year’s $2.74 billion. The reported net income was $1.1 billion. The adjusted EPS was $2.45 up from $1.83 the same time the previous year.

Annual recurring revenue (ARR) - a software service metric showed a subscription-based revenue of $9.17 billion. The consensus was $9.11 billion.

For the next quarter, Adobe expects revenues of $3.15 billion, with an adjusted EPS of $2.40. Analysts expect an EPS of $2.46 and $3.26 billion in revenue.  

Yesterday, they announced the launch of a new app – Photoshop Camera – which consists of elaborate filters that can change people's faces and the world, as well.  The app can be downloaded both for iOS and Android. The app was teased initially in November. 

Initially, during yesterday’s regular trading session, the stock price fell 4.7%, but it managed to recover 4.4% during after-hours. This year, the stock price increased by 18%, while USA500 lost 7%. TECH100 rose by 6%.
