Total Revenues of $77.3 million represented a 40% increase compared to total revenues of $55.3 million in the same period last year. Recurring revenues of $75.9 million increased 40% from the comparable prior year period, and constituted 98% of total revenues.

1 Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see the discussion below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" and the reconciliations at the end of this release for additional information concerning these non-GAAP financial measures.
Paycom provides the following expected financial guidance for the quarter and year ending December 31, 2016:
Quarter Ending December 31, 2016
Total Revenues in the range of $85 million to $87 million.
Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $14 million to $16 million.
Year Ending December 31, 2016
Total Revenues in the range of $326.5 million to $328.5 million.
Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $88 million to $90 million.
We have not reconciled the Adjusted EBITDA ranges for the quarter or year ending December 31, 2016 to net income because applicable information for future periods, on which this reconciliation would be based, is not readily available due to uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, taxes, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and other items. Accordingly, a reconciliation of these Adjusted EBITDA ranges to net income 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. We use Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income as supplemental measures to review and assess our performance before gains, losses or other changes that our management considers to be outside of our core business operating results and for planning purposes. We define: (i) Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and certain transaction expenses that are not core to our operations; and (ii) non-GAAP net income as net income plus non-cash stock-based compensation expense and certain transaction expenses that are not core to our operations, each of which is adjusted for the effect of income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income are metrics that provide investors with greater transparency to the information used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making. We believe these metrics are useful to investors because they provide period-to-period comparisons of the results of our continuing operations, and facilitate comparison with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement results under GAAP. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is a measure that provides useful information to management about the amount of cash available for reinvestment in our business, repurchasing common stock and other purposes.
Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income, which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, you should not consider Adjusted EBITDA or non-GAAP net income in isolation, or as a substitute for net income or other consolidated statements of income data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income 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.
