SAN JOSE (AP) — Software maker Adobe is posting earnings for its latest quarter that exceed analyst expectations, and provides a rosy outlook.
Adobe Systems Inc. earned $269 million, or 53 cents per share, in the fiscal fourth quarter, which ended Dec. 3. In the same period last year, it posted a loss of $32 million, or 6 cents per share, weighed down by tax effects and restructuring costs.

Adobe says revenue jumped 33 percent to $1.01 billion from $757 million last year.
Adobe says it expects to earn between 54 cents and 59 cents per share in the current quarter, excluding items. Analysts were expecting 51 cents.
