Paycom Software, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2018 Results

OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Full Year 2018 Revenues of $566.3 million, up 31% from the prior year

Full Year 2018 Cash from Operations of $184.8 million, an increase of 42% from the prior year

Fourth Quarter Revenues of $150.3 million, up 32% from the comparable prior year period

Paycom Software, Inc. (“Paycom”) (PAYC), a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software, today announced its financial results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

“2018 was one of our most successful years as we improved our retention rate and continued to return value to our stockholders through our repurchase program,” said Paycom’s founder and CEO, Chad Richison. “We believe our impressive results are due in-part to our strategy to promote usage of Paycom software among our clients’ employees. We are excited about our prospects for continuing to win new business utilizing this strategy through 2019 and beyond.”

Paycom’s financial results included the impact of the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which contributed to reductions in the effective income tax rate in the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017. This reduction in the effective tax rate was due to the remeasurement of certain deferred tax assets and liabilities, which are based on expected future income tax rates. The remeasurement, as adjusted for the adoption of Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” (“ASU 2014-09”), resulted in a $24.9 million benefit to our provision for income taxes for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017. The impact of this benefit was $0.42 per diluted share for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017.

Financial Highlights for the Fourth Quarter of 2018

Total Revenues of $150.3 million represented a 32% increase compared to total revenues of $114.0 million in the same period last year. Recurring revenues of $147.9 million increased 32% from the comparable prior year period, and constituted 98% of total revenues.

GAAP Net Income was $31.4 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $48.9 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, in the same period last year, as adjusted1.

Adjusted EBITDA2 was $57.5 million, compared to $48.4 million in the same period last year, as adjusted1.

Non-GAAP Net Income2 was $35.4 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, compared to $53.2 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, in the same period last year, as adjusted1.

Cash and Cash Equivalents were $45.7 million as of December 31, 2018.

Total Debt was $34.4 million as of December 31, 2018.

Financial Highlights for the Full Year 2018

Total Revenues of $566.3 million represented a 31% increase compared to total revenues of $433.0 million in the same period last year. Recurring revenues of $557.3 million increased 31% from the comparable prior year period, and constituted 98% of total revenues.

GAAP Net Income was $137.1 million, or $2.34 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $123.5 million, or $2.10 per diluted share, in the same period last year, as adjusted1.

Adjusted EBITDA2 was $240.9 million, compared to $185.7 million in the same period last year, as adjusted1.

Non-GAAP Net Income2 was $156.6 million, or $2.67 per diluted share, compared to $132.3 million, or $2.25 per diluted share, in the same period last year, as adjusted1.

1 Effective January 1, 2018, we adopted ASU 2014-09. All prior period amounts and disclosures have been recast to comply with the new standards, as indicated by the “as adjusted” footnote.

2 Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see the discussion below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" and the reconciliations at the end of this release for additional information concerning these and other non-GAAP financial measures.

2018 Business Highlights

  • Paycom increased its annual client retention rate to 92% after posting six-consecutive years with a 91% client retention rate.
  • Paycom opened four new sales offices in Rochester, Salt Lake City, Columbus and San Diego.
  • Paycom completed construction of Building 4 on its corporate campus in Oklahoma City, adding 250,000 square feet of available workspace for its growing team.
  • Paycom introduced its redesigned Employee Self-Service Desktop and Mobile applications, allowing easier access for its clients’ employees to use Paycom.
  • Paycom ranked fifth on Fortune magazine’s 2018 100 Fastest-Growing Companies list of domestic and foreign publicly traded companies.

Financial Outlook

Paycom provides the following expected financial guidance for the quarter ending March 31, 2019 and the year ending December 31, 2019. Please note that this guidance reflects the January 1, 2018 adoption of ASU 2014-09:

Quarter Ending March 31, 2019

Total Revenues in the range of $194.0 million to $196.0 million.

Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $97.0 million to $99.0 million.

Year Ending December 31, 2019

Total Revenues in the range of $710.0 million to $712.0 million.

Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $288.0 million to $290.0 million.

We have not reconciled the forward-looking adjusted EBITDA ranges presented above and discussed on the teleconference call to net income, nor the forward-looking non-GAAP effective income tax rate discussed on the teleconference call to the GAAP effective income tax rate, because applicable information for future periods, on which these reconciliations would be based, is not readily available due to uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, taxes, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, change in fair value of our interest rate swap and other items. Further, we have not reconciled the forward-looking adjusted gross margin range discussed on the teleconference call to GAAP gross margin because applicable information for future periods, on which this reconciliation would be based, is not readily available due to uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, cost of revenues, including non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Accordingly, reconciliations of these adjusted EBITDA ranges to net income, the non-GAAP effective income tax rate to the GAAP effective income tax rate and the adjusted gross margin ranges to gross margin are not available at this time without unreasonable effort.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we present certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release and on the related teleconference call, including adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted sales and marketing expenses, adjusted administrative expenses, adjusted research and development expenses and adjusted research and development costs. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental measures to review and assess the performance of our core business operations and for planning purposes. We define (i) adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, certain transaction expenses that are not core to our operations (if any), loss on early repayment of debt, and the change in fair value of our interest rate swap, (ii) non-GAAP net income as net income plus non-cash stock-based compensation expense, certain transaction expenses that are not core to our operations (if any), loss on early repayment of debt and the change in fair value of our interest rate swap, all of which are adjusted for the effect of income taxes, (iii) adjusted gross profit as gross profit plus applicable non-cash stock-based compensation expense, (iv) adjusted gross margin as gross profit plus applicable non-cash stock-based compensation expense, divided by total revenues, (v) each adjusted expense item as the GAAP expense amount less applicable non-cash stock-based compensation expense and (vi) adjusted research and development costs as total research and development costs (including the capitalized portion) less applicable non-cash stock-based compensation expense (including the capitalized portion). The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release and discussed on the related teleconference call provide investors with greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. We believe these metrics are useful to investors because they facilitate comparisons of our core business operations across periods on a consistent basis, as well as comparisons with the results of peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement results under GAAP. In addition, adjusted EBITDA is a measure that provides useful information to management about the amount of cash available for reinvestment in our business, repurchasing common stock and other purposes. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures presented in this press release and discussed on the related teleconference call, when viewed in combination with our results prepared in accordance with GAAP, provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business and performance.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release and discussed on the related teleconference call are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income, gross profit, research and development expenses, sales and marketing expenses, administrative expenses and research and development costs. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, you should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures in isolation, or as a substitute for the consolidated statements of income data prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures that we present may not be comparable to similar titled measures of other companies and other companies may not calculate such measures in the same manner as we do.
