Adobe's Creative Cloud gained 20 million new IDs after users first experienced the applications on their mobile devices, according to Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen on CNBC's "Squawk Alley."
"Mobile is where people are interacting, whether it's for commerce or financial services or interacting with government…49 percent of the transactions that we're seeing,that we're delivering through our digital marketing products, are now also happening on mobile," said Narayen. "So mobile is driving more consumption of content and that's playing into our digital media and digital marketing trends."
Adobe, which is generally conservative with its forecast, said it now expects an adjusted profit of about $2.80 per share, on revenue of about $5.8 billion for its fiscal year 2016.
Analysts on average, were expecting a profit of $2.76 per share, on revenue of $5.74 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
It had previously forecast full-year revenue of about $5.7 billion and an adjusted profit of $2.70 per share.
"I think it's a culmination of all the execution that these guys have put in place for the last 2-3 years," Rosenblatt Securities analyst Kirk Adams said, adding that it was "unlike" Adobe to raise their numbers so early in the year.
It also reported quarterly revenue and profit that topped market expectations on Thursday.
