"Our third-quarter results put us on track to meet our full-year revenue guidance of 18% growth year over year and 30% to 31% non-GAAP operating margins for the full fiscal year ended September 30, 2023. We expect our Deposits revenue to grow over 20% year over year for our full fiscal year, while Identity revenue is on track to grow at least 18% year over year. Also, over the trailing twelve months ended June 30, 2023, Mitek’s net revenue retention rate was over 120%, which underscores the value our solutions deliver in the growing markets we serve. We also continue to drive toward profitability for our Identity business, which we expect to occur by the end of fiscal 2024.

Key Business Metrics
We monitor net revenue retention to help us evaluate our business, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans, and make strategic decisions.
To calculate net revenue retention, the Company first calculates total revenue (including expansion revenue) and reduce that amount by revenue churn (e.g. contract expirations, cancellations, downgrades, or other reductions). To calculate net revenue retention rate, the Company specifies a measurement period consisting of the trailing 12 months from its current period end. The Company then calculates its net revenue retention rate as the quotient obtained by dividing its total revenue in the second year of the measurement period by its revenue in the first year of the measurement period (i.e. the numerator excludes revenue generated by customers newly acquired in the second year of measurement). The net revenue retention rate is subject to adjustments for acquisitions, consolidations, spin-offs, and other market activity, and the Company presents its net revenue retention rate for historical periods reflecting these adjustments.
