Adobe (ADBE) Q4 2019 Earnings Review

Revenue grew by 21% to $2.99 billion. The top line benefited from the growth in Digital Media and in Digital Experience that offset declines in Publishing.

Looking ahead into the first quarter of 2020, the company predicts total revenue of about $3.04 billion, unadjusted earnings of $1.76 per share, and adjusted earnings of $2.23 per share.

For fiscal 2020, total revenue is still expected to be about $13.15 billion, unadjusted earnings of about $7.40 per share, and adjusted earnings of $9.75 per share.

The company expects total revenue to grow by about 17% year-over-year in the first half of fiscal 2020 followed by about 18% growth in the second half of the year. Adobe remained bullish about fiscal 2020 and beyond based on its strong momentum exiting 2019.

For the fourth quarter, Digital Media revenue jumped by 22% helped by growth in Creative and Document Cloud. The Document Cloud growth is being driven by new customer acquisition, migration from Acrobat perpetual licenses to subscriptions, and the monetization of an ever-increasing universe of Document Cloud mobile app users.
