Financial Outlook

Paycom provides the following expected financial guidance for the quarter ending March 31, 2015, and year ending December 31, 2015:

First Quarter 2015

Total Revenues in the range of $49 million to $50 million.

Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $9 million to $10 million.

Fiscal Year 2015

Total Revenues in the range of $194 million to $196 million.

Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $32 million to $34 million.

We have not reconciled the Adjusted EBITDA range for the quarter ending March 31, 2015 or the year ending December 31, 2015 to net income (loss) because applicable information for future periods, on which this reconciliation is based, is not readily available due to uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, taxes, stock-based compensation expense and other items. Accordingly, a reconciliation of these Adjusted EBITDA ranges to net income (loss) is 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 consider and have included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release, including Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss). We use Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) as supplemental measures to review and assess our performance and for planning purposes. We define: (i) Adjusted EBITDA as net income, plus interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, net loss on early extinguishment of debt and certain transaction expenses that are not core to our operations and (ii) non-GAAP net income (loss) as pro forma net income plus tax adjusted stock-based compensation expense, tax adjusted net loss on early extinguishment of debt and certain tax adjusted transaction expenses that are not core to our operations. Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) are metrics that we believe are useful to investors in evaluating our performance and facilitating comparison with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement results under GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered a substitute for net income (loss) or pro forma net income (loss), as applicable, which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, you should not consider Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) in isolation, or as a substitute for “net income (loss),” “pro forma net income (loss)” or other Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) 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.
