In a recent article featured on The Motley Fool regarding Adobe Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADBE), Tim Brugger reported it's been over four years since CEO Shantanu Narayen stopped offering Adobe's (flagship creative cloud suite of software for sale to designers. Instead, Adobe opted to offer its solutions solely on a subscription basis for $20 to $50 a month, depending on the package. Customers were not amused, to put it mildly, with Narayen's initiative. Within days of announcing the transition to a subscription sales model literally thousands of creative types had signed an online petition "demanding" Adobe continue to sell its design software the traditional way... The $1.77 billion in revenue Adobe reported in June was the best second quarter in its history, and nearly all the credit for its jaw-dropping performance harkens back to Narayen's unpopular decision -- at the time -- of shifting to a subscription sales, annualized recurring revenue (ARR) emphasis. The 27% year-over-year jump in revenue was impressive in and of itself, yet pales in comparison to Adobe's subscription growth. Subscription revenue soared 37% last quarter to $1.48 billion, and when service and support sales of $117 million are added to the mix, an impressive 90% of total revenue… A primary reason Adobe was able to deliver such impressive revenue and subscription-related gains, while increasing operating expenses just 20% to $1 billion last quarter, is because it simply costs less to make a one-time sale that drives revenue for years rather than rely on software package sales.
