(Reuters) – Photoshop maker Adobe Systems Inc (ADBE.O) on Monday lifted its forecast for yearly earnings per share, helped by new U.S. tax laws, saying it expects its effective tax rate to decline “substantially.”

Adobe said it expects earnings of $6.20 per share for fiscal year 2018, up from a previous forecast of $5.50.

Shares of the company rose more than 5 percent to $208.02 in after-hours trading.
