The heading says it all: This deal was worth approximately $3.4 billion, and Adobe basically inhaled Macromedia and all their software packages. The shareholders of Macromedia were given Adobe shares in return, and the Macromedia shareholders will own about 18% of the final Adobe-Macromedia company. Adobe will surely empower its marketshare for enterprise software solutions and mobile communication, especially by combining the web- and graphicdesign departments. How the final spectre of futurous applications for developper tools, the resulting contents and related media equipment might turn out to look like, it’s yet another prospering business.
