PAYLOCITY HOLDING CORPORATION

Notes to the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements

(all amounts in thousands, except per share data)

 

 

(1)  Organization and Description of Business

 

Paylocity Holding Corporation (the “Company”), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Paylocity Corporation, is a cloud-based provider of payroll and human capital management software solutions for medium-sized organizations. Services are provided in a Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) delivery model utilizing the Company’s cloud-based platform. Payroll services include collection, remittance and reporting of payroll liabilities to the appropriate federal, state and local authorities.

 

(2)  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

(a)  Consolidation and Use of Estimates

 

These unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant items subject to such estimates and assumptions include the allowance for doubtful accounts, internal-use software, valuation and useful lives of long-lived assets, definite-lived intangibles, goodwill, incurred but not reported medical and dental claims, stock-based compensation, valuation of net deferred income tax assets and the best estimate of selling price for revenue recognition purposes. Future events and their effects cannot be predicted with certainty; accordingly, accounting estimates require the exercise of judgment. Accounting estimates used in the preparation of these consolidated financial statements change as new events occur, as more experience is acquired, as additional information is obtained and as the operating environment changes.

 

(b)  Interim Unaudited Consolidated Financial Information

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes have been prepared in accordance with GAAP and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the interim financial information includes all adjustments of a normal recurring nature necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial position, results of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year or the results for any future periods. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes for the year ended June 30, 2016 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on August 12, 2016.

 

(c)  Income Taxes

 

Differences in the normal relationship between the income tax expense (benefit) and pre-tax income materially result from the existence of a valuation allowance recorded against the preponderance of the net deferred tax assets.

 

(d)  Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company recognizes all employee stock-based compensation as a cost in the financial statements. Equity-classified awards, including those under the 2014 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”), are measured at the grant date fair value of the award and expense is recognized, net of assumed forfeitures, on a straight-line basis over the

6


 

Table of Contents

requisite service period for each separately vesting portion of the award. The Company estimates grant date fair value using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model and periodically updates the assumed forfeiture rates for actual experience over the option vesting term or the term of the ESPP purchase period.

 

(e)  Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2014-09”). ASU 2014-09 supersedes a majority of existing revenue recognition guidance under US GAAP, and requires companies to recognize revenue when it transfers goods or services to a customer in an amount that reflects the consideration to which a company expects to be entitled. Companies may need to apply more judgment and estimation techniques or methods while recognizing revenue, which could result in additional disclosures to the financial statements. In addition, in March 2016, April 2016, May 2016 and December 2016 the FASB issued ASU 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net) (“ASU 2016-08”), ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing (“ASU 2016-10”), ASU 2016-12, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients (“ASU 2016-12”) and ASU 2016-20, Technical Corrections and Improvements to Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASU 2016-20”), respectively, to amend certain guidance in ASU 2014-09. Topic 606 allows for either a retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. ASU 2014-09 was originally effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. In July 2015, the FASB approved a one-year deferral of ASU 2014-09 and all amendments to it, with a new effective date for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 with early adoption permitted as of the original effective date.

 

The Company currently expects to adopt the new standard in its fiscal year beginning July 1, 2018 and is evaluating adoption methods.  While the impact the new revenue recognition standard will have on its consolidated financial statements and disclosures has not yet been fully assessed, the Company currently expects that there will be a material impact in the manner in which it treats certain costs of obtaining new contracts (i.e., selling and commission costs).  The new standard will require the Company to defer these costs and amortize them versus expensing these costs as incurred. The Company is continuing to evaluate all potential impacts as well as the changes required for systems, processes and internal controls to meet the new standard’s reporting and disclosure requirements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”) which amends various aspects of existing guidance for leases. ASU 2016-02 requires an entity to recognize assets and liabilities arising from a lease with terms greater than twelve months, along with additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures. ASU 2016-02 also requires the use of the modified retrospective method, which will require adjustment to all comparative periods presented. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the potential effects of these changes to its consolidated financial statements and is evaluating the timing of adoption.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) (“ASU 2016-09”) which modifies the existing guidance for stock compensation specifically related to the accounting for excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies, forfeitures, and employer tax withholding requirements.  ASU 2016-09 also clarifies certain classifications on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The Company will adopt this new standard in its fiscal year beginning July 1, 2017 and is currently assessing the potential effects of these changes to its consolidated financial statements.

 

From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the FASB or other standard setting bodies that are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective date. Unless otherwise discussed, the Company believes that the impact of other recently issued standards that are not yet effective will not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

(4)  Fair Value Measurement

 

The Company applies the fair value measurement and disclosure provisions of ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, and ASU 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. A three-level fair value hierarchy prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy requires entities to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The three levels of inputs used to measure fair value are as follows:

 

·

Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.

 

·

Level 2—Quoted prices in active markets for similar assets and liabilities, or other inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

·

Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities. This includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs.

 

Substantially all of the Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis are measured using Level 1 inputs. The Company considers the recorded value of its financial assets and liabilities, which consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, funds held for clients, accounts payable and client fund obligations to approximate the fair value of the respective assets and liabilities at June 30, 2016 and March 31, 2017 based upon the short-term nature of these assets and liabilities.

 

 

 

(5)  Benefit Plans

 

(a)  Equity Incentive Plan

 

The Company maintains a 2008 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2008 Plan”) and a 2014 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2014 Plan”) pursuant to which the Company has reserved shares of its common stock for issuance to its employees, directors and non-employee third parties. The 2014 Plan serves as the successor to the 2008 Plan and permits the granting of options to purchase common stock and other equity incentives at the discretion of the compensation committee of the Company’s board of directors. No new awards have been or will be issued under the 2008 Plan since the effective date of the 2014 Plan. Outstanding awards under the 2008 Plan continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of the 2008 Plan. The number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the 2014 Plan will

9


 

Table of Contents

increase automatically each calendar year, continuing through and including January 1, 2024. The number of shares added each year will be equal to the lesser of (a) four and five tenths percent (4.5%) of the number of shares of common stock of the Company issued and outstanding on the immediately preceding December 31, or (b) an amount determined by the Company’s board of directors. The Company’s board of directors determined that, effective January 1, 2017, it would increase the number of common shares in reserve for issuance under the 2014 Plan by 2,314 shares.

 

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had 12,684 shares allocated to the plans, of which 4,606 shares were subject to outstanding options or awards. Generally, the Company issues previously unissued shares for the exercise of stock options or vesting of awards; however, shares previously subject to 2014 Plan grants or awards that are forfeited or net settled at exercise or release may be reissued to satisfy future issuances.

 

The following table summarizes changes in the number of shares available for grant under our equity incentive plans during the nine months ended March 31, 2017:

In addition, the Company capitalized $281 and $540 of stock-based compensation expense in its capitalized internal-use software costs in the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, and $823 and $1,412 in the nine months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively.

 

Under the 2008 and 2014 Plans, the exercise price of each option cannot be less than the fair value of a share of common stock on the grant date. The options typically vest ratably over a three or four year period and expire 10 years from the grant date. Stock-based compensation expense for the fair value of the options at their grant date is recognized ratably over the vesting schedule for each separately vesting portion of the award.

 

The Company values stock options using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, which requires the input of subjective assumptions, including the risk-free interest rate, expected life, expected stock price volatility and dividend yield.  The risk-free interest rate assumption is based upon observed interest rates for U.S. Treasury securities consistent with the expected term of the Company’s employee stock options. The expected life represents the period of time the stock options are expected to be outstanding and is based on the simplified method. Under the simplified method, the expected life of an option is presumed to be the mid-point between the vesting date and the end of the contractual term. As the Company has a limited history of trading as a public company, the Company utilizes the simplified method due to

10


 

Table of Contents

the lack of sufficient historical exercise data to provide a reasonable basis upon which to otherwise estimate the expected life of the stock options. Therefore, the expected volatility is based on historical volatilities for publicly traded stock of comparable companies over the estimated expected life of the stock options. The Company assumed no dividend yield because it does not expect to pay dividends in the near future, which is consistent with the Company’s history of not paying dividends.

 

There were no stock options granted during the nine months ended March 31, 2017. The following table summarizes the assumptions used for estimating the fair value of stock options granted for the nine months ended March 31, 2016:

There were no stock options granted during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017 or the nine months ended March 31, 2017. The weighted average grant date fair value of options granted during the nine months ended March 31, 2016 was $12.92. The total intrinsic value of options exercised was $908 and $2,813 during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, and $8,496 and $8,352 during the nine months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively.  At March 31, 2017, there was $1,004 of total unrecognized compensation cost, net of estimated forfeitures, related to unvested stock option granted under the Plan. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.45 years.

 

The Company may also grant RSUs under the 2014 Plan with terms determined at the discretion of the compensation committee of the Company’s board of directors. RSUs generally vest over three or four years following the grant date.  Certain RSU awards have time-based vesting conditions while other RSU awards are based on attainment of certain performance benchmarks.

At March 31, 2017, there was $27,942 of total unrecognized compensation cost, net of estimated forfeitures, related to unvested restricted stock awards granted under the Plan. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 1.92 years.

 

(b)  Employee Stock Purchase Plan

 

Under the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”), the Company can grant stock purchase rights to all eligible employees during specific offering periods not to exceed twenty-seven months. Each offering period will begin on the trading day closest to May 16 and November 16 of each year. Shares are purchased through employees’ payroll deductions, up to a maximum of 10% of employees’ compensation for each purchase period, at a purchase price equal to 85% of the lesser of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock at the first trading day of the applicable offering period or the purchase date. Participants may purchase up to $25 worth of common stock or 2 shares of common stock in any one year. The ESPP is considered compensatory and results in compensation expense.

 

As of March 31, 2017, a total of 888 shares of common stock were reserved for future issuances under the ESPP. The number of shares of common stock reserved for issuance under the ESPP will increase automatically each calendar year, continuing through and including January 1, 2024. The number of shares added each year will be equal to the lesser of (a) 600, (b) seventy-five one hundredths percent (0.75%) of the number of shares of common stock of the Company issued and outstanding on the immediately preceding December 31, or (c) an amount determined by the Company’s board of directors. For fiscal year 2017, the Company’s board of directors determined that it would not increase the number of common shares reserved for issuance under the ESPP.

 

The Company issued 64 shares upon the completion of its six-month offering period ending November 15, 2016. The Company recorded compensation expense attributable to the ESPP of $283 and $304 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, and $791 and $967 for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, which is included in the summary of stock-based compensation expense above. The grant date fair value of the ESPP offering periods was estimated using the following weighted average assumptions:

Up to December 31, 2015, the Company matched 50% of the employees’ contributions up to 6% of their gross pay. Effective January 1, 2016, the Company increased its match to 50% of employees’ contributions up to 8% of their gross pay. Contributions were $821 and $1,055 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, and were $1,937 and $2,732 for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively.

(6)  Net Income Per Share

 

Basic net income per common share is computed using the weighted‑average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is computed using the weighted‑average number of common shares outstanding during the period and, if dilutive, potential common shares outstanding during the period. The Company’s potential common shares consist of the incremental common shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options, the release of restricted stock units, and the shares purchasable via the employee stock purchase plan as of the balance sheet date.

(7)  Income Taxes

 

The Company’s quarterly provision for income taxes is based on the discrete effective tax rate method. The Company’s quarterly provision for income taxes also includes the tax impact of certain unusual or infrequently occurring items, if any, including changes in judgment about valuation allowances and effects of changes in tax laws or rates, in the interim period in which they occur.

 

The Company recorded income tax expense (benefit) of $(43) and $32 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, and $143 and $164 for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017 differ from statutory rates primarily due to the existence of a valuation allowance recorded against the preponderance of the net deferred tax assets.

 

The Company reviews the likelihood that it will realize the benefit of its deferred tax assets and, therefore, the need for a valuation allowance on a quarterly basis. It established a valuation allowance on all of its net deferred tax assets except for deferred tax liabilities associated with indefinite-lived intangible assets during fiscal 2014, given that the Company determined that it was more likely than not that the Company would not recognize the benefits of its net operating loss carryforwards prior to their expiration. The Company has continued to carry the valuation allowance during fiscal 2016 and for the nine months ended March 31, 2017. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits.

Item 2.    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The statements included herein that are not based solely on historical facts are “forward looking statements.” Such forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated by us in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those discussed below and under Part II, Item 1A: “Risk Factors.”

 

Overview

 

We are a cloud-based provider of payroll and human capital management (or “HCM”) software solutions for medium-sized organizations, which we define as those having between 20 and 1,000 employees. Our comprehensive and easy-to-use solutions enable our clients to manage their workforces more effectively. Our solutions help drive strategic human capital decision-making and improve employee engagement by enhancing the human resource, payroll and finance capabilities of our clients.

 

Effective management of human capital is a core function in all organizations and requires a significant commitment of resources. Medium-sized organizations operating without the infrastructure, expertise or personnel of larger enterprises are uniquely pressured to manage their human capital effectively.

 

Our solutions were specifically designed to meet the payroll and HCM needs of medium-sized organizations. We designed our cloud-based platform to provide a unified suite of applications using a multi-tenant architecture. Our solutions are highly flexible and configurable and feature a modern, intuitive user experience. Our platform offers automated data integration with over 200 related third-party systems, such as 401(k), benefits and insurance provider systems.

 

Our Paylocity Web Pay product is our core payroll solution and was the first of our current offerings introduced into the market. We believe payroll is the most critical system of record for medium-sized organizations and an essential gateway to other HCM functionality. We have invested in, and we intend to continue to invest in, research and development to expand our product offerings and advance our platform.

 

We believe there is a significant opportunity to grow our business by increasing our number of clients, and we intend to invest in our business to achieve this purpose. We market and sell our solutions primarily through our direct sales force. We have increased our sales and marketing expenses as we have added sales representatives and related sales and marketing personnel. We intend to continue to grow our sales and marketing organization across new and existing geographic territories. In addition to growing our number of clients, we intend to grow our revenue over the long term by increasing the number and quality of products that clients purchase from us. To do so, we must continue to enhance and grow the number of solutions we offer to advance our platform.

 

We believe that delivering a positive service experience is an essential element of our ability to sell our solutions and retain our clients. We seek to develop deep relationships with our clients through our unified service model, which has been designed to meet the service needs of medium-sized organizations. We expect to continue to invest in and grow our implementation and client service organization as our client base grows.

 

We believe we have the opportunity to continue to grow our business over the long term, and to do so, we have invested, and intend to continue to invest, across our entire organization. These investments include increasing the number of personnel across all functional areas, along with improving our solutions and infrastructure to support our growth. The timing and amount of these investments vary based on the rate at which we add new clients, add new personnel and scale our application development and other activities. Many of these investments will occur in advance of experiencing any direct benefit from them which will make it difficult to determine if we are effectively allocating our resources. We expect these investments to increase our costs on an absolute basis, but as we grow our number of clients and our related revenues, we anticipate that we will gain economies of scale and increased operating leverage. As a result, we expect our gross and operating margins will improve over the long term.

 

As our business has grown, we have become increasingly subject to the risks arising from adverse changes in domestic and global economic conditions. If general economic conditions were to deteriorate further, including declines in private sector employment growth and business productivity, increases in the unemployment rate and changes in interest rates, we may experience delays in our sales cycles, increased pressure from prospective customers to offer

discounts and increased pressure from existing customers to renew expiring recurring revenue agreements for lower amounts. Our interest income on funds held for clients continues to be adversely impacted by historically low interest rates.

 

Our operating subsidiary Paylocity Corporation was incorporated in July 1997 as an Illinois corporation. In November 2013, we formed Paylocity Holding Corporation, a Delaware corporation, of which Paylocity Corporation is now a wholly-owned subsidiary. Paylocity Holding Corporation had no operations prior to the restructuring. All of our business operations, excluding interest earned on certain cash holdings and expenses associated with certain secondary stock offerings, have historically been, and are currently, conducted by Paylocity Corporation, and the financial results presented herein are entirely attributable to the results of its operations.

 

Key Metrics

 

We regularly review a number of metrics, including the following key metrics, to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate financial projections and make strategic decisions.

 

Recurring Revenue Growth

 

Our recurring revenue model and high annual revenue retention rates provide significant visibility into our future operating results and cash flow from operations. This visibility enables us to better manage and invest in our business. Recurring revenue, which is comprised of recurring fees and interest income on funds held for clients, increased from $67.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 to $86.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, representing a 29% year-over-year increase. Recurring revenue increased from $162.3 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 to $215.1 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2017, representing a 32% year-over-year increase. Recurring revenue represented 95% and 96% of total revenue during both the three and nine months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively. Recurring revenue was positively impacted by the launch in fiscal 2016 of our Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) compliance solution, which had significant penetration beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. The impact on year-over-year quarterly revenue growth of our ACA compliance solution was the highest in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 given the timing of significant penetration beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

 

Recurring Fees from New Clients

 

We calculate recurring fees from new clients as the percentage of year-to-date recurring fees from all clients on our solutions which had not been on or used any of our solutions for a full year as of the start of the current fiscal year. We believe recurring fees from new clients is an im
