kurze Erläuterung: release der neuen Flash Version, FLASH MX und einer ganzen pallette neuer macromedia produkte. Flash MX wird wesentlich mehr Käufer finden als die versionen zuvor, bereits jetzt ist ein noch nie da gewesener Hype um Flash MX enstanden.
Was besonders interessant ist: Flash MX ist, entgegen allen Behauptungen VOLL 3d fähig (auf vektorebene) und wenn's gut läuft wird mein team das erste sein was eine komplette libary an 3d funktionen auf den markt bringt.
Mit dieser neuen Mächtigkeit wird Flash das Web in ein weiteres neues "zeitalter" bringen. Deshalb, take a look at it.
Ich bin bei 15 $ und gestern bei etwa 18 $ eingestiegen, Handelsplatz Nasdaq, wkn:556100105, nicht in Deutschland kaufen weil umsätze hier zu gering sind. Kurzfristig Luft bis 26 $, aber auch langfristig wegen oben genannter Nachrichten interessant

Macromedia Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2002 Results
SAN FRANCISCO, April 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Macromedia, Inc. (Nasdaq: MACR - news) today announced fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2002 results. Revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2002 were $75.6 million, compared with revenues of $89.1 million reported in the same quarter a year ago. Pro forma net loss was $6.1 million, or a loss of $0.10 per share, for the fourth fiscal quarter 2002, compared with pro forma net income of $8.4 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.15 for the same period in the prior year.

Revenues for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2002 totaled $324.8 million, compared with revenues of $376.4 million for the same period a year ago. Pro forma net loss for fiscal year 2002 was $28.1 million, or a loss of $0.48 per share, compared with pro forma net income of $66.9 million, or diluted earnings per share of $1.18, for fiscal year 2001.

Under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (``GAAP''), net loss for the fourth fiscal quarter 2002 was $80.5 million, or a loss of $1.37 per share, compared with a net loss of $21.8 million, or a loss of $0.42 per share, for the same period last year. Net loss for the year ended March 31, 2002 on a GAAP basis was $305.9 million, or a loss of $5.26 per share, compared with net income of $13.4 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.24, for the same period last year.

``This quarter, we kicked off a major new product cycle with the introduction of Macromedia Flash MX,'' said Rob Burgess, Macromedia chairman and chief executive officer. ``Our MX family of products will empower millions of developers to create rich Internet applications that radically enhance the user experience and reduce costs. We are all very encouraged about the initial market reaction to these great new products.''

Business Outlook

The Company said that it expects revenue growth to resume in the first fiscal quarter 2003 based on the Company's upcoming product cycle. Revenues are expected to be up 10% on a sequential basis. The Company also confirmed that a return to profitability on a pro forma basis is expected in the June quarter.

Pro Forma Results

Macromedia's pro forma results for the three months and year ended March 31, 2002 and 2001 differ from reported results in accordance with GAAP due to adjustments for the following items reported in its unaudited condensed consolidated results from operations:


    -- Acquisition-related expenses
    -- Acquired in-process research and development
    -- Non-cash compensation expense
    -- Restructuring expenses
    -- Impairment and amortization of intangible assets
    -- Loss on investments, net
    -- Loss on equity affiliate
    -- Litigation settlement
    -- Operating results of AtomShockwave which were consolidated with
       Macromedia's results through December 31, 2000


Pro forma results for the three months and year ended March 31, 2002 reflect a benefit from income taxes at an effective tax rate of 20 percent. Recognition of this tax benefit results from the expected utilization of tax loss carryforwards generated in fiscal year 2002 to offset taxable income in future periods. Pro forma results for the three months and year ended March 31, 2001 reflect an effective tax rate of 23 percent and 19 percent, respectively.

Conference Call

Macromedia will host a conference call today to discuss fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2002 results at 2:30pm PT /5:30 pm ET. A live Webcast of the conference call can be accessed at www.macromedia.com/MACR/. A replay of the conference call will be available on the Web site until May 15.

Macromedia's quaterly net loss nearly quadruples

SAN FRANCISCO, April 24 (Reuters) - Web design software maker Macromedia Inc.
(NasdaqNM:MACR - news) on Wednesday posted a fiscal fourth-quarter net loss that was nearly four times larger than a
year ago, as corporate spending on technology remained weak.

The San Francisco-based maker of Flash animation software and Dreamweaver content building software, said its net loss
ballooned to $80.5 million, or $1.37 per share, from a net loss of $21.8 million, or 42 cents a share, in the year-earlier selling
period ended March 31.

Total revenue fell to $75.6 million from $89.1 million last year.

Excluding charges, Macromedia had a pro forma loss of $6.1 million, or 10 cents a share. A year ago, the company's pro
forma profit was $8.4 million, or 15 per share.

Analysts, on average, had expected the company to post a 14-cent loss on revenues of $72.8 million, according to tracking
firm Thomson Financial/First Call.

4 Cent besser als erwartet? Und höhere Umsätze - geht doch!

ich war gerade am überlegen ob die Zahlen gut oder schlecht sind:) erwartet wurden tatsächlich -14 cent, das sind immerhin etwa 35 % besser! was auch gut ist: Das Unternehmen macht sehr positive Prognosen für das nächste Quartal, allerdings sollten die dann auch tatsächlich wieder Gewinn machen...(ich halte nix von Verlusten;)

Es wird nämlich charttechnisch erst spannend.

Variante1: Anschlusskäufe fehlen - Tripeltop bei 21$

Variante2: Das Gap wird geschlossen und MACR läuft auf 26$.



Ich denke mal, wir bevorzugen Variante 2...; kommt aber wohl auch auf die Performance des Gesamtmarkts an.

Mit der MX-Produktfamilie geht Macromedia aufs Ganze: Das Studio MX vereint Web-Editor, Bildbearbeitung und Vektorgrafik und motiviert zur Gestaltung dynamischer Websites. Jetzt stehen auf öffentliche Beta-Versionen der überarbeiteten Anwendungen bereit. Macromedia stellt seine MX-Produkte als komplette Lösung zur Erstellung von "Rich Internet Applications" vor. Die Darstellung dieser Inhalte übernimmt ein "Rich Client" -- dabei handelt es sich um nichts anderes als das von Macromedia entwickelte Flash-Plug-in.

Was vor zwei Jahren mit HTML 4.0 und JavaScript nicht gelang, soll jetzt mit Flash Wahrheit werden: In Flash-Filme eingebettete Einkaufskataloge und Shopping Carts sollen Server-Kapazitäten schonen und dem Besucher ein komfortableres Shopping-Erlebnis bieten. Bleibt abzuwarten, ob Macromedias Rechnung aufgeht und die Entwickler den Umstieg von statischen HTML-Seiten zu dynamischen Web-Anwendungen mitmachen.

Zur bereits erhältlichen Vektor-Authoring-Software Flash MX gesinnen sich der HTML-Editor Dreamweaver MX und die Web-Bildbearbeitung Fireworks MX. Die Anwendungen werden auch in einem Bundle angeboten, das neben Dreamweaver, Fireworks und Flash auch die Vektor-Software Freehand 10 sowie eine Entwicklerversion des Cold Fusion Servers enthält: Studio MX.

Wesentliche Neuerungen im Überblick:

ColdFusion MX
komplett auf Java (JRun) umgestellt
gleichberechtigte Verarbeitung von CFML- und JSP-Komponenten
Integration in Microsoft .NET Architektur
Funktionen zur Einbindung von Web Services per SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol)
erweiterter Datenaustausch mit Flash-Filmen per gesichertem Datenprotokoll ("Flash Remoting")
ActionScript-Unterstützung
Version für J2EE-Server für Juli geplant
Preis: einfacher Server 800 US-Dollar; Enterprise Server 5000 US-Dollar (wie Vorversionen)

Dreamweaver MX
Integration der Funktionen aus "Dreamweaver UltraDev": Datenbankanbindung, Erstellung aktiver Websites mit ASP-, JSP- und PHP-Elementen
Erweiterung der ColdFusion-Integration
Ausbau des Code-Editors um alle wesentlichen Funktionen aus HomeSite (Tag-Ergänzung, Validator usw.)
neue Optik (abschaltbar)
Preis: 400 US-Dollar (100 Dollar mehr als Dreamweaver 4)

Fireworks MX
neue Bitmap-Tools: Weichzeichnen, Scharfzeichnen, Abdunkeln, Aufhellen, Verwischen
erweiterte Navigationsleisten
Erweiterung der Integration zu Dreamweaver
neue Optik (nicht abschaltbar)
Preis: 300 US-Dollar (wie Vorversion)
Bei FreeHand handelt es sich um die bereits seit letztem Sommer erhältliche Version (siehe auch c't 13/01, S. 90). Das Studio MX Bundle soll 800 US-Dollar kosten. Mit der darin enthaltenen Developers Edition von ColdFusion MX kann man dynamische Web-Anwendungen allerdings nur lokal nutzen; für den Einsatz im Internet ist ein zusätzlicher ColdFusion-MX-Server vonnöten.

Mit der Einführung der MX-Familie verabschiedet sich Macromedia von einem ganzen Stapel an Anwendungen und Paketen: ColdFusion Studio wird nicht mehr weiter verkauft, ebensowenig Dreamweaver UltraDev und Flash Generator. Die unterschiedlichen Studio-Bundles (u.a. Flash & Freehand und Dreamweaver & Fireworks) werden ebenfalls eingestampft. Der HTML-Texteditor HomeSite 5 bleibt zwar vorerst im Handel, wird aber nicht mehr weiter entwickelt.

Unklar bleibt weiterhin, wofür "MX" steht. Laut Hersteller steht es für gar nichts -- Flash-Entwickler frotzeln dagegen schon seit Monaten, es stehe für "More eXpensive" -- die MX-Versionen von Dreamweaver als auch Flash kosten 100 Dollar mehr als ihre Vorgänger. (ghi/c't)

100 Dollar? ne...200 Dollar!!!! :((
Was auch wichtig zu erwähnen ist  das Macromedia mit ColdFusion in den Server bereich eindringt, mit Partnern wie Sun und IBM, auch da steckt unheimlich viel dahinter, sehr clevere Marketing Strategie...

  6. Macromedia verliert Patentstreit vs. Adobe   Dr.UdoBroemme  03.05.02 01:08  
Thursday May 2, 6:38 pm Eastern Time

Press Release

SOURCE: Macromedia, Inc.

Verdict Reached in Initial Adobe vs. Macromedia
Case

SAN FRANCISCO, May 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Macromedia, Inc. (Nasdaq:
MACR - news) today announced that a jury ruled in favor of Adobe Systems, Inc. in its
patent infringement suit against Macromedia. The verdict included a damage award of
$2.8 million. Macromedia expects no material impact from this judgment on the
Company's financial condition or market leadership.

"It is unfortunate, and we believe wrong, that Adobe has chosen this field to compete.
Ultimately, it is our customers, and particularly our mutual customers, that will be harmed,"
said Rob Burgess, chairman and CEO, Macromedia. "Nonetheless, we have no choice
but to protect our right to innovate and must defend ourselves on this playing ground."

In August 2000, Adobe filed suit against Macromedia in the U.S. District Court of
Delaware. Macromedia filed counterclaims of patent infringement in response to Adobe's
lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Delaware in September 2000. Macromedia will be
presenting its case as it relates to its patents beginning on Monday, May 6, 2002. In
October 2001, Macromedia brought a patent infringement suit against Adobe in the
Northern District of California relating to additional patents that Macromedia believes that
Adobe infringes.

 
 

40887 Postings, 7050 Tage Dr.UdoBroemmeWieso?

Nach der Meldung ist MACR doch sogar noch eine Weile ordentlich gestiegen; der Absturz begann erst einen Monat später. Das kann es eigentlich nicht gewesen sein, oder?

das mit dem Patentstreit war blödsinn. Ich kann mir auch nicht vorstellen das dies den Kurs in irgendeiner Weise stark beeinflusst hat. (wenn man nämlich wusste um welches blöde Patent es eigentlich ging). Heute steigt Macromedia stark an, gute Zahlen, mehrfache Heraufstufungen. Und die nächste Flash generation steht vor der Tür. Im Moment bin ich mir aber nicht sicher wie ich Macromedia einschätzen soll...warte mal auf Flash 8...
