Additional Q2 2017 Results and Highlights

Gross margin on a GAAP basis was 83%, compared to 84% in the second quarter of last year. The decline in the second quarter was due to additional amortization of intangibles related to recent acquisitions. Non-GAAP gross margin, calculated as non-GAAP gross profit as a percent of revenue, was 84%, compared to 85% in the second quarter of last year. Non-GAAP gross margin represents GAAP gross profit adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs and amortization divided by revenue.

GAAP net loss was $(14.3) million, or $(0.31) per share, compared to a net loss of $(11.4) million, or $(0.28) per share for the second quarter of 2016

Non-GAAP net loss was $(0.2) million, or $(0.00) per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $(3.7) million, or $(0.09) per share for the second quarter of 2016

Net cash provided by operating activities for the second quarter of 2017 was $19.7 million, while capital expenditures totaled $2.2 million, leading to free cash flow of $17.4 million, compared to $10.2 million in the second quarter of last year

Added 192,000 net premium subscriptions in the period - our second highest net additions ever - to reach 2.9 million as of June 30, 2017, a 35% increase over the second quarter of 2016

Added 5.5 million registered users in the second quarter - the second highest registered user additions in our history. Registered users as of June 30, 2017 were 109 million, representing a 24% increase compared to the end of the second quarter of 2016

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, non-GAAP gross margin, 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. Non-GAAP gross margin represents gross profit calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs and amortization, divided by revenue. 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. Free cash flow represents 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 these measures provide 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 free cash flow 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.
