Survey: Adobe discount draws customers to subscription plan
http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-57558332-92/survey-adobe-discount-draws-cu...

Several survey results included. It should be interesting to see how editors and facilities handle it in the long run.

[Dennis Radeke] "Boy Craig, you must have a billion RSS feeds. Stay tuned later today."

Hey Dennis, I think those graphs are pretty interesting, especially the first one. I am a Creative Cloud subscriber, and I love it, but that $50 per month fee may be a bit hard to swallow when that year is up. I don't know what I'm going to do yet, but if somehow it remains $30 per month, I think you'd have an ongoing subscription (from me at least) for much, much longer.

Adobe Earnings Preview: All Eyes On Creative Cloud

http://www.trefis.com/stock/adbe/articles/157808/adobe-earnings-preview-all...

Since I've posted this kind of stuff on Avid and Apple, it's interesting to see this on Adobe as well. What is clear for this article is that the Creative Suite and Creative Cloud is important to Adobe.

Adobe passes one million Creative Cloud subscribers, rolls out collaborative tools
http://www.theverge.com/2012/12/11/3754444/adobe-creative-cloud-one-million...

Adobe has announced that over one million people have signed up for its Creative Cloud platform. Approximately 326,000 are paid subscribers of the service

Hmm, why the difference between "signed up" and "paid subscribers?"

Craig,

My math is coming out as ~50m revenue for Creative Cloud out of over 1billion revenue this quarter.

What's their main revenue?

Franz.

Trefis says

Adobe has guided that for Q4 2012 it expects revenue of $1.07-$1.12 billion and diluted EPS in the range of $0.34-$0.39 on a GAAP basis and $0.53-$0.58 on a non-GAAP basis.

And they say Photoshop and Creative software is "48% of the stock price." It's not clear how they calculate that.

This chart has some of their analysis.

The actually earnings report happens on Dec 13 though.

Craig,

Yes, I saw some of that. "Percent of stock price" sounds like crazy voodoo to me though. I was wondering if you knew a sketch of revenue breakdown from past reports.

Franz.

Their links are a bit funky but if you use this and click on Revenue I assume those are real numbers through 2012 (or last Q of 2012 is estimate until Dec 13).

Craig,

Thanks ... got it.

That breakdown shows Photoshop and "other creative software" as just over 50% of revenue.

Which would mean that while Creative Cloud generated ~50m this quarter, other "creative software" sales did more than 500m in the same period.

Or my math is wrong.

Franz.

I decided to take the plunge on Creative Cloud- I figured that it would be at least 4 years before I was paying more than someone who bought Production Premium outright (based on initial purchase price plus upgrade costs for new versions).

I only wish I'd held off another 3 weeks... when Adobe decided to do another FCP switch discount. Ug!
