SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitek Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:MITK) (www.miteksystems.com), a leading mobile imaging software solutions provider, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, which ended March 31, 2013.
"We had a strong quarter which can be attributed to the widespread adoption of our mobile imaging solutions, particularly Mobile Deposit and Mobile Photo Bill Pay. We believe Mobile Deposit has become an expected capability, and more banks than ever are utilizing the technology to retain customers and attract new business. Meanwhile, U.S. Bank was the first nation-wide bank to launch Mobile Photo Bill Pay" said James B. DeBello, president and CEO of Mitek. "We are confident in our momentum moving forward, and are excited to partner with a variety of institutions interested in Mitek's technology."
Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $3.2 million compared to total revenue of $1.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012, driven primarily by growth in software license revenue.
GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $2.4 million, or $0.09 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.11 on a per share basis, in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.7 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
Total operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $5.6 million compared to $4.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in total operating expenses was primarily driven by higher investments in personnel to grow the business as well as litigation-related expense.
The Company ended the second quarter of fiscal 2013 with cash, cash equivalents and investments of $15.3 million, compared to $14.6 million at September 30, 2012.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This news release contains non-GAAP financial measures for non-GAAP net (loss) income and non-GAAP net (loss) income per share that exclude stock compensation expenses. These financial measures are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (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 utilize these non-GAAP financial measures to gain a better understanding of evaluating 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 financials, 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, identifying trends in the Company's underlying business and performing related trend analyses, and they provide a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company's underlying business.
