Macromedia will Webcast its second-quarter earnings announcement on Wednesday, October 18 at 10:30pm, UK time.

The announcement will be broadcast from the Macromedia Web site. Rob Burgess, chairman and CEO, and Barney Nelson, chief financial officer, will host the broadcast.

The announcement will be archived on Macromedia’s site until November 10, and takes place against a background of a tumbling market for tech stocks, with two per cent wiped off the Nasdaq, and £30 billion lost by the UK’s top IT companies on the Stock Exchange yesterday. Apple lost a further $1.25 yesterday, to close at $19.625.
