This represents 19 percent year-over-year revenue growth. Adobe's second quarter revenue target range was $855 to $885 million.

"Our strong performance in Q2 was driven by the product mix and geographic diversity of our business," said Shantanu Narayen, president and chief executive officer. "We continue to execute against our strategy, and are well positioned for solid financial performance in the second half of this year and beyond."

Adobe Provides Third Quarter Financial Targets

For the third quarter of fiscal 2008, Adobe announced it is targeting revenue of $855 million to $885 million. The Company also stated it is targeting an operating margin of approximately 29 percent on a GAAP basis, and an operating margin of approximately 38.5 percent on a non-GAAP basis.

In addition, Adobe is targeting its share count to be between 544 million and 548 million shares in the third quarter. The Company also is targeting GAAP and non-GAAP non-operating income to be approximately $4 million. Adobe's GAAP tax rate is expected to be approximately 25 percent, and its non-GAAP tax rate is expected to be approximately 26 percent.

These targets lead to a third quarter diluted earnings per share target range of $0.34 to $0.36 on a GAAP basis, and a earnings per share target range of $0.45 to $0.47 on a non-GAAP basis.

A reconciliation between these GAAP and non-GAAP financial targets is provided at the end of this press release.

Third quarter financial targets do not include the impact of a $90 million acquisition of intellectual property rights closed in June, which Adobe believes will not affect the Company's non-GAAP targets.
