In the interest of comparability during this transition year, in the reconciliation table below we are providing revenue for each quarter of fiscal 2018 on a GAAP and non-GAAP, pro-forma basis giving effect to the change in recognition of implementation revenue for fiscal 2018.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in this press release, including the accompanying tables. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Stock Repurchase Plan:

Paylocity’s Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase plan under which $35.0 million is available for repurchase through August 14, 2019. Shares may be repurchased from time-to-time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices or privately negotiated transactions. The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased will depend on the market price of our common stock, general market conditions and other corporate and economic considerations.

Business Outlook Based on information available as of August 9, 2018, Paylocity is issuing guidance for the first quarter and full fiscal year 2019 as indicated below.

First Quarter 2019:

-- Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $97.5 million to $98.5 million, which represents 22% - 24% growth over fiscal 2018 first quarter revenue, as adjusted and as presented on a non-GAAP basis in the table above. -- Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is expected to be in the range of $20.0 million to $21.0 million.

Fiscal Year 2019:

-- Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $451.0 million to $453.0 million, which represents 21% - 22% growth over fiscal 2018 total revenue, as adjusted and as presented on a non-GAAP basis in the table above. -- Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is expected to be in the range of $126.5 million to $128.5 million.

We are unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their directly comparable GAAP financial measures because the information which is needed to complete a reconciliation is unavailable at this time without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThe company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release, including Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit, adjusted recurring gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP sales and marketing, non-GAAP total research and development and non-GAAP general and administrative and free cash flow. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), and depreciation and amortization expense, adjusted to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock releases and option exercises, acquisition-related costs and lease exit costs. Adjusted gross profit and adjusted recurring gross profit are adjusted to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock releases and option exercises and amortization of capitalized internal-use software costs. Non-GAAP operating income is adjusted to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock releases and option exercises, the amortization of acquired intangibles, lease exit costs and accelerated depreciation expense and acquisition-related costs. Non-GAAP sales and marketing expense is adjusted to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock releases and option exercises. Non-GAAP general and administrative expense is adjusted to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock releases and option exercises, the amortization of acquired intangibles, acquisition-related costs and lease exit costs and accelerated depreciation expense. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share are adjusted to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock releases and option exercises, the amortization of acquired intangibles, acquisition-related costs, lease exit costs and accelerated depreciation expense and the income tax effect on these items, the valuation allowance release, excess tax benefit related to employee stock-based compensation payments and the impact of tax reform. Pro forma diluted weighted average number of common shares are adjusted for the weighted average effect of potentially diluted shares. Non-GAAP total research and development is adjusted for capitalized internal-use software costs and to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock releases and option exercises. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capitalized internal-use software costs, purchase of property and equipment and lease allowances used for tenant improvements. Please note that other companies may define their non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do. Management presents certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the company’s performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and to determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the company’s financial and operational performance. Management also intends to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of the company’s future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of the non-GAAP financial measures should provide consistency in the company’s financial reporting. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures provided in this release.

Included in the press release, we also refer to non-GAAP revenue. Effective July 1, 2018, we began recognizing implementation revenue ratably over a period of up to 24 months. To allow investors comparability to prior year results, we have provided comparable information on fiscal 2018 as if we had recognized implementation revenue ratably over a period of up to 24 months during fiscal 2018. However, for periods beginning before adoption, those adjusted financial measures are considered not to be calculated in accordance with GAAP and are thus presented as non-GAAP financial metrics.

------- - - ------- - (1) Acquisition-related costs: Includes legal, accounting and other professional fees as well as various other costs directly associated with acquisitions. (2) Lease exit costs: Includes the acceleration of rent and other expenses associated with the remaining lease term on our previous headquarters as a result of the transition to the Company’s new headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois. (3) Lease exit costs and accelerated depreciation expense: Includes the lease exit costs outlined above in item (2) as well as accelerated depreciation expense related to property and equipment as a result of the transition to the Company’s new headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois. (4) Income tax effect on adjustments: Includes the impact of non-GAAP net income adjustments related to stock-based compensation expense and employer payroll taxes related to stock release and option exercises, amortization of acquired intangibles, acquisition-related costs and lease exit costs and accelerated depreciation expense at an effective tax rate of 25.0%. (5) Valuation allowance release: We established a valuation allowance on all of our net deferred tax assets except for deferred tax liabilities associated with indefinite-lived intangible assets during fiscal 2014, given that we determined that it was more likely than not that we would not recognize the benefits of its net operating loss carryforwards prior to their expiration. As a result of our improving financial performance, including net income in fiscal 2017 and in the first nine months of fiscal 2018 and other factors, we released our valuation allowance against net deferred tax assets, resulting in a one-time, non-cash increase to net income. (6) Excess tax benefit related to employee stock-based compensation payments:Net federal and state tax windfall or shortfall benefits related to employee stock-based compensation payments. (7) Impact of tax reform:On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the Act) was signed into law. During fiscal 2018 we recorded an increase in our income tax provision due to the enactment of the Act. This increase to the provision for income taxes related to a reduction in net deferred tax assets, and is excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures because it is an expense that we do not consider part of ongoing operations.
