Analyst Note

| Emma Williams |

We maintain our $212 fair value estimate for Paylocity following a transfer of coverage. While dominant legacy payroll providers have invested heavily over the past decade to remain competitive on functionality, Paylocity has capitalized on their shortfalls to capture share through the appeal of its cloud based, unified, and user-friendly platform. We expect the company is well placed to capture further share of the expansive and growing payroll and human capital management market aided by industry consolidation and a greater uptake of outsourced solutions.
