Cloud HR software vendor Paycom files for $100M IPO

Paycom Software, a developer of cloud-based talent management, payroll, and HR management software, has filed for a $100M IPO under the symbol PAYC. Barclays, JPMorgan, Pac Crest, Stifel, and Canaccord are underwriting.

Paycom argues its apps are differentiated in part by their ability to leverage an integrated platform that eliminates redundant data entry and the need to access multiple databases.

The company claims to have 10K+ clients, with none accounting for more than 0.5% of revenue. Rivals include cloud HR software leader Workday, smaller vendors Cornerstone OnDemand and Ultimate Software, and enterprise software giants SAP and Oracle (both have made acquisitions in this space).

Paycom had 2013 revenue of $107.6M (+40% Y/Y), and net income of $5.4M. Sales/marketing spend equaled 40% of revenue, and the company's deferred revenue balance totaled $12.6M at the end of 2013.

Given how peers have performed lately, investor interest could be strong.

    Curious as to whether Workday, Ultimate and Cornerstone actually consider Paycom to be a rival.
