Adobe To Buy Figma

Adobe Inc., the world’s largest developer of software for image processing, to acquire Figma — a collaborative web application for interface design — for $20 billion.

The combination of Adobe and Figma is transformational and will accelerate our vision for collaborative creativity“, – said Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen.

According to reports, Adobe plans to finance nearly half of the deal with shares and the remainder with cash.

In June 2021, Figma then raised $200 million in a Series E funding round. Figma’s valuation was around $2 billion as of April 2020 and $10 billion at the end of May 2021.
