Adobe Inc. reported higher-than-expected revenue in its second quarter, driven by an increase in its subscription software business.

Revenue rose 25% from a year earlier to $2.74 billion. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected $2.71 billion of revenue the quarter.

At the company's digital-media business, which accounts for most of its subscription revenue, revenue grew 22% from a year earlier to $1.89 billion.

Adobe built its name around desktop publishing with products like Acrobat and the ubiquitous PDF but has since transitioned to a cloud-based, subscription business.

The company posted a profit of $632.6 million, or $1.29 a share, compared with $663.2 million, or $1.33 a share, a year ago.

Excluding one-time items, the company reported adjusted earnings of $1.83 a share. Analysts were expecting earnings of $1.25 a share, or $1.78 a share on an adjusted basis.

Total operating expenses were $1.59 billion for the quarter, compared with $1.22 billion the same period a year ago.

For its current quarter, Adobe said it expects $2.80 billion in revenue, earnings of $1.40 a share and adjusted earnings of $1.95 a share. The company's forecast is below the $2.83 billion in revenue and $1.33 a share analysts polled by FactSet were expecting.

Shares of Adobe ticked up 2.6% during aftermarket trading. The company's stock is up 22% this year.
