1) What are some of Adobe’s product/service segments it provides? Does Adobe have a main product/service? Who are some of the competitors Adobe lists in some of these segments?
2) Review the many Risk Factors provided by Adobe. If the group had $250,000 to invest in Adobe, which 3 or 4 risk factors really cause your group concern, to the point of possibly not investing.
3) Review the section titled, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis” (MD&A). What type(s) of information are provided in this section? What did your group find most interesting and why?
4) Review Adobe’s financial statements. What was Adobe’s fiscal year end for this filing? Did Adobe have any significant increases/decreases year-to-year in specific line items? If so, describe 2 or 3 such items, the amount of the change, and see if you can find any reasons for the large change in the Notes, MD&A, etc.
5) Again, assuming you have $250,000 to invest in Adobe as a group, do individual members of the group consider the company a good investment? If so and/or if not, why/why not?
