About Adobe Inc.
Adobe Inc. (NASDAQ: ADBE) (formerly known as Adobe Systems Incorporated ) is an American multinational computer software company. Adobe was founded in December 1982 by Charles Geschke and John Warnock.
Prior to co-founding Adobe, Charles Geschke and John Warnock were working at Xerox‘s Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). At PARC, Geschke and Warnock, together invented a page description language (PDL), which provided a means to describe complex forms like typefaces electronically – called Interpress. They tried almost for two years to convince Xerox management to turn Interpress into a commercial product but failed. Later, they both left Xerox and co-found Adobe Systems.
Adobe was originally incorporated in California in October 1983 and later in May 1997, it was reincorporated in Delaware.
On August 20, 1986, Adobe went for Initial public offering, at a split-adjusted share price of US$.17. It was the first time in 1999 when Adobe’s annual revenue crossed $1 billion mark.
