San Diego, California, September 5, 2023 — Mitek Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MITK,, “Mitek” or the “Company”), a global leader in digital identity and digital fraud prevention, today reported financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2023 ended December 31, 2022. Total revenue increased 41% year over year, reaffirming Mitek’s market-leading position.

Fiscal First Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue increased 41% year over year to a record $45.7 million due in part to a large, multi-year mobile deposit contract signed and partially recognized during the quarter.
  • GAAP net income was $4.7 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. 
  • Non-GAAP net income was $14.3 million, or $0.31 per diluted share. 
  • Cash flow from operations was $5.3 million.
  • Total cash and investments were $107.6 million on December 31, 2022.

Mitek CEO Max Carnecchia’s Comments

“Our strong performance in the first quarter highlights the continued relevance of our industry-leading solutions in the large and growing markets we address. As new types of fraud and scams emerge and existing ones see a resurgence, like check fraud, I’m proud of Mitek’s innovation and speed in responding to these growing threats. Our Identity revenue was up 15% year over year in the first quarter despite the difficult macro environment, reinforcing our solid position as a leader in the ever-changing identity and fraud landscape. Further bolstering our financial performance, our Deposits business delivered a particularly strong quarter, up 59% year over year, largely due to the signing of a large multi-year contract that locked in favorable pricing for Mitek over four years. Due to the unique terms of this one contract, we recognized additional license revenue relating to future periods of approximately $7.0 million in the first quarter. Looking ahead, we expect to release our fiscal 2023 second quarter results on September 14th, and we will host a conference call at that time to discuss the first half performance.”

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.
