NEW YORK -- Shares of Arlington Heights-based Paylocity surged 41 percent in their first day of trading on the Nasdaq.

The cloud-based software provider's initial public offering raised nearly $120 million, with 7 million shares pricing for $17 each. That was above the projected range of $14 to $16 per share. The company had initially expected about 6.7 million shares in the IPO, according to a regulatory filing.

Paylocity Holding Corp. offered 5 million shares, while about 2 million shares came from the selling stockholders. Paylocity won't receive any proceeds from those shares.

The company plans to use its share of the funds, about $85 million, to pay off debt and for working capital.

Trading under the "PCTY" ticker symbol, Paylocity's stock climbed $7.04 to end at $24.04 Wednesday.
