Adobe the maker of Acrobat and PhotoShop software products said in a regulatory filing last week that it would take a $10 million to $14 million restructuring charge in its current fiscal fourth quarter ended November. Adobe said it would book the expense "in order to realign its resources to support its future business plans."
Adobe cut 247 jobs in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2001 and took a related charge of $12.1 million, according to regulatory filings.
The spokeswoman said Adobe employs about 3,500 people worldwide.
Thus far, Adobe has fared better than some of its Silicon Valley peers that have been slashing jobs in an effort to get costs in line with revenues that are slumping on still-weak corporate technology spending.
