Thanks, Ant. Also March 2018 revenue guidance for $135 - $136 million (46%-47% growth)! I almost thought that was a typo…125M was expected.

WOW.

Thanks for the summary, Ant. I saw the pop and news as well. WIX is one of my larger positions based on my reading here and anticipated potential with a huge TAM. I appreciate the board bringing it to my attention (especially Bear I believe).

Cheers,

dave
