Adobe 收购 Macromedia

加了一个晚上的班,还是进展不大.但是看到了这个令人震惊的消息.Adobe and Macromedia

具体的交易细节如下:

Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq: ADBE) has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Macromedia (Nasdaq: MACR) in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $3.4 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, which has been approved by both boards of directors, Macromedia stockholders will receive, at a fixed exchange ratio, 0.69 shares of Adobe common stock for every share of Macromedia common stock in a tax-free exchange. Based on Adobe’s and Macromedia’s closing prices on Friday April 15, 2005, this represents a price of $41.86 per share of Macromedia common stock. (Copy from Adobe)

Adobe 和 Macromedia 都是令人喜欢的公司.这个年代用计算机的人恐怕没有人没用过Acrobat Reader,设计过网页的人怕是也都用”网页设计三剑客”.毫无疑问,一个软件巨人诞生了.从04年到现在,并购的消息不断传来.看来,这是个并购/合并的年代.

回想起自己刚刚学习计算机的时候,买的第一本关于网页设计的书也是国内第一本关于DreamWeaver的书,那个时候 DreamWeaver 应该刚刚到2.0的版本,Bug 好多,而且还对中文支持不好,但是功能也足够强大了。虽然,对HTML的东西浅尝辄止,不过也足够令我引起回忆。

Adobe & Macromedia ,一路走好!
