Commenting on the results, James DeBello, President and CEO of Mitek, said:
“Our industry leading mobile check deposit product continued to be the primary driver of revenue growth in fiscal 2015, enabling us to achieve record revenue, net income and EPS. Mobile check deposit remains a tremendous growth opportunity as it currently represents less than 5% of the approximately 19 billion checks deposited in the U.S. each year, according to the most recent Fed study. Adoption by both consumers and businesses is growing rapidly, and we expect this trend to drive continued revenue growth for Mitek in fiscal 2016 and beyond. With our successful acquisition of IDchecker and launch of our Photo Verify product, we intend to further expand into the multi-billion-dollar mobile ID verification market in the coming year. Mitek has become the de facto standard in mobile capture in financial services and we intend to leverage this position by expanding into this new, high growth market.”
