Adobe will start a new redundancy process that will reach 9% of the company’s employees globally,. The announcement was made yesterday and results from reduced sales.
The realignment of costs had already forced the company to lay off 600 people in December, to which there are now close to 700 employees. According to company data, this new wave of layoffs will only reach Adobe employees before the purchase of Omniture, carried out in September.
In relation to this acquisition, a cut of 9% of the workers in the created unit had already been reported, which had around 1,200 employees at the time the deal was carried out.
In September, Adobe reported a 29% drop in third quarter earnings, which resulted mainly from the drop in sales. The restructuring costs are now expected to rise to $ 65 or $ 71 million.
The restructuring, with the planned redundancies, should allow the company to align its operational plan for 2010, ensuring continued investment in its line of business, explains the Adobe statement.
