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, adjusted EBITDA, 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. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net profit or loss before interest, bank charges and other financial expenses (income), net unrealized losses (gains) on hedging transactions, other expenses, taxes on income, depreciation amortization, and other unusual or non-recurring expenses, share-based compensation expense and including the effect of the changes in deferred revenue and prepaid domain registration costs. Non-GAAP net loss represents net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense and other non-GAAP adjustments. 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.

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 adjusted EBITDA guidance to net profit because it does not provide guidance for net profit. As items that impact net profit 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 net profit is not available without unreasonable effort.
