Shares of Adobe Systems Inc. rallied in extended-hours trading on Oct. 15 after the company released its initial revenue growth targets for its fiscal year 2019.
The software firm estimates its total revenue to grow by 20% year over year for its fiscal year 2019, and its digital experience subscription bookings to increase by 25%.

The software company will report its fourth-quarter earnings for FY 2018 and FY 2019 revenue and EPS targets on Dec. 13.
