NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ltd. (WIX), a leading cloud-based web development platform, today reported another strong quarter of financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017, again exceeding the high end of guidance on all key metrics.

“Our focus on product development and innovation once again resulted in a strong quarter,” said Avishai Abrahami, Co-founder and CEO of Wix. “With the addition of Wix Code, we now have a product targeted specifically to creators, designers and developers. This is a remarkable product that significantly expands our addressable market to those who want to build complex web applications that can be tailored for any business need. With Wix ADI, the Wix Editor, our vertical applications and now Wix Code, Wix provides a product set that can be used by any user, regardless of skill set, to create anything online.”

Lior Shemesh, CFO of Wix, commented, “We generated record collections and revenue this quarter driven by year-over-year growth in new registered users and conversion to premium subscriptions.
