Recent Business Highlights
  • Worldwide Availability of Wix ADI:  Wix made Wix ADI available in English to all users globally in late August. Wix ADI eliminates the most significant challenges of building websites - time, design, and content creation, and this has helped Wix attract additional users who previously would not have had the capabilities to create a site with Wix. Since the global release, the average time it takes a user to build a website on Wix has shortened, our overall conversion has continued to improve, and we have seen a strong increase in the adoption of vertical applications. 
  • Wix Launches Wix Pro Gallery:  Wix launched Wix Pro Gallery, enabling photographers and designers to create stunning online portfolios of their images, video, and text. Wix Pro Gallery provides the most professional gallery tools available on the web, giving users complete control over the quality and distribution of their online images. To mark the launch, Wix and Condé Nast teamed up to give three Wix users the opportunity to shoot the cover of the magazines BRIDES or Condé Nast Traveler, or to assist on a Vanity Fair cover shoot. 
  • Wix Launches Wix App:  Wix launched the Wix App for iOS and Android. The Wix App is the mobile interface for the WixOS, which enables Wix users to manage and grow their businesses online. The app streamlines many day-to-day activities and keeps business owners up to date through real-time notifications on a mobile device. The app also introduces new ways for business owners to stay engaged with site visitors, via Live Chat, and with existing customers, via Wix Engage. The Wix App reflects users' demand for robust mobile functionality and positions Wix as the premier provider of OS solutions for small businesses around the world. 
  • Wix Mobile Growth:  Our users have created over 20 million mobile sites using our platform to date, making Wix one of the largest mobile site development platforms globally. 
  • Global E-commerce Platform: E-commerce subscriptions surpassed 300,000 during the quarter. Growth of e-commerce and transaction-enabled websites continues to exceed our overall subscriptions growth highlighting our broad reach with small businesses. 
  • Strong Platform Engagement: Continued engagement with the Wix ecosystem is illustrated by over 417 million user contacts saved onto the Wix platform by our users.  Leveraging Wix's MyAccount CRM system, business owners track customer activity data, manage relationships and communicate using WixShoutOut, Wix's email marketing solution.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Wix uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: collections, collections and revenue on a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP operating loss, free cash flow, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share (collectively the "Non-GAAP financial measures"). Collections represents the total cash collected by us from our customers in a given period and is calculated by adding the change in deferred revenues for a particular period to revenues for the same period. We adjust collections and revenue to measure them on a constant currency basis by assuming the same exchange rates as the prior period applied to the reported figures in the current period. Non-GAAP operating loss represents operating loss calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, amortization, and acquisition-related costs. Non-GAAP net loss represents net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, amortization, and acquisition-related costs. Non-GAAP net loss per share represents non-GAAP net loss divided by the weighted average number of shares used in computing GAAP loss per share. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as cash flow from operations before changes in working capital, prepaid domain registration costs, interest, bank charges and other financial expenses (income), net unrealized losses (gains) on hedging transactions, other income (expenses), taxes on income, and other unusual or non-recurring expenses. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures. 

The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that it provides useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" table in this press release. This accompanying table has more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures. The Company has not reconciled its guidance as to adjusted EBITDA to cash flow from operations because it does not provide guidance for cash flow from operations. As items that impact cash flow from operations are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, the Company is unable to provide such guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation to cash flow from operations is not available without unreasonable effort.
