Company Provides Update on Status of Macromedia Acquisition
On April 18, 2005, Adobe announced a definitive agreement to acquire Macromedia (Nasdaq:MACR - News). Adobe said today the integration planning process between the two companies is well underway and continues to anticipate the acquisition will close in the Fall of 2005. The Company also indicated its pre-merger notification and report form under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act is currently being reviewed by the Department of Justice, and said it expects to file a registration statement on Form S-4 in the next few weeks.
On June 13, 2005 a stockholder derivative complaint was filed by a purported Adobe stockholder in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Santa Clara. The complaint names Adobe and its board of directors as defendants and alleges breach of fiduciary duty in connection with Adobe's plan to acquire Macromedia in light of Macromedia's recent restatement of its financial results for its fiscal years 1999-2004. Adobe management believes the complaint is without merit and intends to defend the matter vigorously.
Adobe is maintaining a Website as an ongoing source of information regarding the Macromedia acquisition at http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/invrelations/adobeandmacromedia.html.
Adobe Provides Third Quarter Financial Targets
For the third quarter of fiscal 2005, Adobe announced it is targeting revenue of $470 to $490 million, which represents approximately 16 to 21 percent year-over-year growth.

Research & Development -- approximately 20 percent
Sales & Marketing -- approximately 29 to 31 percent
