Wix Reports First Quarter 2024 Results

Record increase to FCF outlook driven by Q1 outperformance and expected 2H bookings acceleration – now anticipating 26% FCF margin in FY2024, one year ahead of plan and within clear sight of hitting Rule of 40 milestone already this year

  • Strong start to year with total bookings of $457.3 million, up 10% y/y driven by reacceleration of Creative Subscriptions growth
  • Total revenue of $419.8 million exceeded expectations, up 12% y/y driven by continued momentum in the Partners business – reflecting market share gains and stronger than anticipated Wix Studio uptake
  • Robust top-line growth coupled with stable optimized cost structure drove record FCF1 margin of 26% in the most recent quarter
    • GAAP operating income of $9.7 million marks second consecutive quarter of GAAP operating profit; we continue to expect positive full year 2024 GAAP operating income
  • Expect acceleration of both Self Creators and Partners bookings growth in second half of 2024, driven by strong traction of expanding AI product suite and Studio, as well as encouraging business fundamentals
    • Increasing 2024 bookings outlook with 2H bookings growth expected to accelerate to 16% y/y vs. 15% previously expected
    • Increasing 2024 FCF1 margin outlook to ~26% – well ahead of three-year plan as 25%+ FCF margin target was previously anticipated for 2025

NEW YORK, May 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Wix.com Ltd. (Nasdaq: WIX), the leading SaaS website builder platform globally2, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2024.

“Building on the milestones achieved in 2023, we carried that momentum into the first quarter and delivered a strong start to 2024 with results demonstrating the efficacy of our product strategy, solid execution of our growth initiatives, and steadfast commitment to balanced profitable growth. As a result, Q1 results outperformed expectations across the board,” said Avishai Abrahami, Wix Co-founder and CEO. “This outperformance was underpinned by robust business fundamentals as well as strong product traction, particularly for our expansive AI product offering and Wix Studio. Notably, we saw extremely strong usage of our AI Website Builder that was launched earlier in the quarter with hundreds of thousands of sites already created using the tool over just a few months. Wix Studio also continues to perform ahead of plan, with over one million Studio accounts created since our August launch. Importantly, these accounts have resulted in more Studio premium subscriptions than anticipated as Studio users have converted at a high rate. This high conversion of Studio users is a testament to the powerful design, creation and workflow management capabilities that professionals cannot get anywhere else. We continue to expect AI and Studio to be increasingly more meaningful drivers of growth in 2024 and the years to come.”

“We kicked off 2024 with a strong start to the year with top-line growth and profitability exceeding expectations in Q1, positioning us within close reach of the Rule of 40,” added Lior Shemesh, CFO at Wix. “Of note, bookings growth accelerated to 10% y/y and revenue growth of 12% y/y exceeded expectations, driven by higher conversion and improved monetization across our user base, as well as the robust product traction Avishai mentioned. Strong top-line growth coupled with a stable cost base resulted in record FCF margin of 26% in the quarter, well ahead of our three-year plan.

Encouraged by the Q1 outperformance and strong cohort behavior across our business, we are raising bookings, revenue and FCF outlook for the year. Bookings growth is now expected to accelerate to 16% y/y in 2H, driven by accelerating growth in both of our Self Creators and Partners business. Self Creators growth acceleration is expected to be propelled by AI products driving higher conversion and product attach. Partners growth acceleration is expected to primarily come as a result of Studio ramping and contributing more meaningfully through the year than initially planned.

This improved bookings trend is expected to translate into strong y/y revenue growth acceleration in 2025. As a result of this broad-based strength and the maintenance of our stable cost structure, we are confident that we will significantly surpass the Rule of 40 in 2025.”

____________________

1

Free cash flow excluding expenses associated with the buildout of our new corporate headquarters.

2

Based on the number of active live sites as reported by key competitors’ figures, independent third-party-data and internal data as of Q4 2023.

3

Transaction revenue is a portion of Business Solutions revenue, and we define transaction revenue as all revenue generated through transaction facilitation, primarily from Wix Payments as well as Wix POS, shipping solutions and multi-channel commerce and gift card solutions.

4

Partners revenue is defined as revenue generated through agencies and freelancers that build sites or applications for other users (“Agencies”) as well as revenue generated through B2B partnerships, such as LegalZoom or Vistaprint (“Resellers”). We identify Agencies using multiple criteria, including but not limited to, the number of sites built, participation in the Wix Partner Program and/or the Wix Marketplace or Wix products used (incl. Wix Studio). Partners revenue includes revenue from both the Creative Subscriptions and Business Solutions businesses.

*

In Q1 2024, the definition was slightly revised to exclude revenue generated from agreements with enterprise users that by their nature are more suitable to be categorized under revenue generated by Self Creators. Such revision had an immaterial impact on prior period amounts.

Financial Outlook

Our outstanding Q1 results, which exceeded expectations, demonstrate the strong traction of our marquee products, efficacy of our key strategic initiatives, and robust underlying business fundamentals against a stable macro backdrop. We remain confident in our ability to significantly surpass the Rule of 40 in 2025.

Given Q1 outperformance along with continued robust cohort behavior and strong business trends, we are increasing full year bookings outlook to $1,796$1,826 million, or 12-14% y/y growth. The midpoint of this updated outlook is ~$13 million higher than the midpoint of our previous outlook of $1,784$1,813 million.

This increase reflects 2H24 y/y bookings growth acceleration in both Self Creators and Partners. Self Creators growth acceleration is expected to be propelled by AI products driving higher conversion and product attach. Partners growth acceleration is expected to be primarily driven by Studio ramping and contributing more meaningfully through the year than initially planned. This increase in outlook also reflects better than expected dynamics around the price increase we implemented this quarter as renewals prove to be stickier and retention of existing users higher than expected. We now expect total bookings in the second half of 2024 to accelerate to 16% at the high end of our guidance range, up from 15% as previously anticipated. We continue to expect Creative Subscriptions bookings to accelerate to double digit y/y growth in 2H24.

This improved bookings trend is expected to translate into y/y revenue growth acceleration in 2025.

We are also increasing our full year revenue outlook to $1,738$1,761 million, or 11-13% y/y growth. The midpoint of this updated outlook is ~$8 million higher than the midpoint of our previous outlook of $1,726$1,757 million as a result of better visibility in our business and higher bookings expectations.

We expect total revenue in Q2 2024 of $431$435 million, or 11-12% y/y growth.

For the full year 2024, we continue to expect non-GAAP total gross margin of 68-69% with non-GAAP Business Solutions gross margin to exceed 30% for the full year.

We now expect non-GAAP operating expenses to be 50-51% of revenue for the full year, down slightly from our previous expectation of 51-52% of revenue. This anticipated decrease is due to expected organic improvement in sales productivity and slower hiring as a result of the efficiency initiatives implemented over the past few years.

We continue to expect positive GAAP operating income in 2024 as well as a second consecutive year of GAAP net income.

We now expect to generate free cash flow, excluding headquarters costs, of $445$455 million, or ~26% of revenue in 2024, up from $370$400 million, or 21-23% of revenue. This meaningful increase in free cash flow is expected to be driven primarily by the increase in bookings expectations coupled with a more favorable gross margin mix as Creative Subscriptions growth is expected to accelerate throughout the year, the operating efficiencies mentioned above and general working capital efficiencies. This puts us an entire year ahead of our three-year plan, as we did not expect to achieve 25%+ FCF margin until 2025. 

Given increased share repurchase activity as well as continued share count management, we anticipate to end 2024 with 62 – 63 million of fully diluted shares.

Expected stronger cash flow generation in conjunction with this share count forecast, translates to a higher expected FCF per share trajectory for the full year than previously anticipated.

Finally, we continue to expect stock-based compensation to be approximately 13% of revenue in 2024, in-line with our three-year plan.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Operating Metrics

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: bookings, cumulative cohort bookings, bookings on a constant currency basis, revenue on a constant currency basis, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, free cash flow, free cash flow, as adjusted, free cash flow margins, non-GAAP R&D expenses, non-GAAP S&M expenses, non-GAAP G&A expenses, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP cost of revenue expense, non-GAAP financial expense, non-GAAP tax expense (collectively the “Non-GAAP financial measures”). Measures presented on a constant currency or foreign exchange neutral basis have been adjusted to exclude the effect of y/y changes in foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Bookings is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated by adding the change in deferred revenues and the change in unbilled contractual obligations for a particular period to revenues for the same period. Bookings include cash receipts for premium subscriptions purchased by users as well as cash we collect from business solutions, as well as payments due to us under the terms of contractual agreements for which we may have not yet received payment. Cash receipts for premium subscriptions are deferred and recognized as revenues over the terms of the subscriptions. Cash receipts for payments and the majority of the additional products and services (other than Google Workspace) are recognized as revenues upon receipt. Committed payments are recognized as revenue as we fulfill our obligation under the terms of the contractual agreement. Bookings and Creative Subscriptions Bookings are also presented on a further non-GAAP basis by excluding, in each case, bookings associated with long term B2B partnership agreements. Non-GAAP gross margin represents gross profit calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization, divided by revenue. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) represents operating income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, amortization, acquisition-related expenses and sales tax expense accrual and other G&A expenses (income). Non-GAAP net income (loss) represents net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, amortization, sales tax expense accrual and other G&A expenses (income), amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs and acquisition-related expenses and non-operating foreign exchange expenses (income). Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share represents non-GAAP net income (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. Free cash flow, as adjusted, represents free cash flow further adjusted to exclude one-time cash restructuring charges and the capital expenditures and other expenses associated with the buildout of our new corporate headquarters. Free cash flow margins represent free cash flow divided by revenue. Non-GAAP cost of revenue represents cost of revenue calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization. Non-GAAP R&D expenses represent R&D expenses calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization. Non-GAAP S&M expenses represent S&M expenses calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization. Non-GAAP G&A expenses represent G&A expenses calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization. Non-GAAP operating expenses represent operating expenses calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for the impact of share-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization. Non-GAAP financial expense represents financial expense calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for unrealized gains of equity investments, amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs and non-operating foreign exchange expenses. Non-GAAP tax expense represents tax expense calculated in accordance with GAAP as adjusted for provisions for income tax effects related to non-GAAP adjustments.

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 tables provided below. The accompanying tables have 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 is unable to provide reconciliations of free cash flow, free cash flow, as adjusted, cumulative cohort bookings, non-GAAP gross margin, and non-GAAP tax expense to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort because items that impact those GAAP financial measures are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Such information may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future financial results.

Wix also uses Creative Subscriptions Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) as a key operating metric. Creative Subscriptions ARR is calculated as Creative Subscriptions Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) multiplied by 12. Creative Subscriptions MRR is calculated as the total of (i) the total monthly revenue of all Creative Subscriptions in effect on the last day of the period, other than domain registrations; (ii) the average revenue per month from domain registrations multiplied by all registered domains in effect on the last day of the period; and (iii) monthly revenue from other partnership agreements including enterprise partners.
