SAN DIEGO, CA, July 28, 2022 - Mitek (NASDAQ: MITK, www.miteksystems.com), “Mitek” or the “Company”), a global leader in digital identity and digital fraud prevention, today reported financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2022 ended June 30, 2022. Total revenue increased 24% year over year as commerce continues its rapid shift to digital channels.
Mitek capped the quarter with the March acquisition of HooYu, the United Kingdom’s leading Know Your Customer (KYC) technology pioneer. The acquisition allows Mitek to offer customers a powerful end-to-end, easy-to-use platform capable of managing the entire customer identity journey, including account opening, workflow, case management, analytics and re-verification/authentication.
Fiscal third quarter 2022 financial highlights
- Total revenue increased 24% year over year to $39.3 million in a record third quarter.
- GAAP net loss was $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share.
- Non-GAAP net income was $10.2 million, or $0.23 per diluted share
- Total cash and investments were $90.6 million at the end of the quarter.
“As consumers transact more business online than ever, identity verification has become essential to safe digital access,” said CEO Max Carnecchia. “In 2021, the combined impact of traditional identity fraud and identity fraud scams cost companies $52 billion and affected 42 million U.S. consumers. ” “During the quarter, we launched MiVIP, the Mitek Verified Identity Platform, making digital access faster and more secure than ever while giving companies comprehensive, secure control over their entire customer identity journey, saving them time and money,” Carnecchia continued. “Mitek’s new platform is the culmination of our best technologies, our most recent acquisition, and our ongoing commitment to putting our customers in control of their consumers’ experiences.”
“Our customers feel the weight of staggering fraud losses, significant operational costs, and the brand damage associated with identity fraud, all while trying to maintain a seamless customer experience,” said CFO Frank Teruel. “MiVIP provides our customers the tools to quickly deploy and balance these constant tensions.”

Note regarding use of non-gaap financial measures
This news release contains non-U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) financial measures for non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share that exclude acquisition-related costs and expenses, intellectual property litigation costs, executive transition costs, stock compensation expenses, restructuring costs, amortization of debt discount and issuance costs, income tax effect of pre-tax adjustments, and the cash tax difference. These financial measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP and are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. In evaluating the Company’s performance, management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial statements prepared under GAAP. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide a useful measure of the Company’s operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into the Company’s ongoing operating performance. Further, management and the Board of Directors of the Company utilize these non-GAAP financial measures to gain a better understanding of the Company’s comparative operating performance from period-to-period and as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP financial statements, are useful to investors because they provide a basis for meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s ongoing operating results, including results of operations against investor and analyst financial models, which helps identify trends in the Company’s underlying business and provides a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company’s underlying business.
