Stock Repurchase Plan
In August 2018, Paylocity’s Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase plan under which $35.0 million was available for repurchase through August 14, 2019, and the stock repurchase plan has been fully executed.
We adopted ASC 606 using the modified retrospective method in fiscal 2019, which began on July 1, 2018. Under ASC 606, we will amortize certain sales and implementation expenses over a period of seven years.
Also as of July 1, 2018, we began recognizing implementation revenue ratably over a period of generally up to 24 months.
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.
