SAN DIEGO, Aug. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitek Systems, Inc.

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $2,954,000, compared with $822,000 in the same quarter last year, an increase of 259 percent.  Gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was 85 percent, compared with 75 percent for the same quarter last year.

Third quarter net income was $325,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $647,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same fiscal quarter last year.  

The Company ended the third fiscal quarter of 2011 with cash, cash equivalents and short term investments of $16,436,000, compared with $1,495,000 in the year-ago period.  The Company had working capital of approximately $17,616,000 and stockholders' equity of $17,856,000 at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2011, compared with working capital of approximately $816,000 and stockholders' equity of $538,000 at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2010.

Mitek reported that the total number of Mobile Deposit® signed customers doubled to 80 banks and financial institutions over the past quarter, including the signing of an additional Tier 1 bank. Among these financial institutions, 24 have now formally launched Mobile Deposit to their customers.

"We are very pleased with the trajectory of Mobile Deposit," said President and CEO James DeBello. "Six of the Top 10 U.S. banks and two prominent brokerages have now agreed to deploy Mobile Deposit and we remain in the early stages of what we believe to be widespread adoption.

"Based on the success of Mobile Deposit, financial institutions are now discussing broader mobile-imaging strategies and developing new customer solutions that leverage Mitek's technology. For example, a major retail financial services company is developing a mobile-check-cashing solution using Mobile Deposit to address the largely untapped market of more than 50 million unbanked consumers in the U.S. who can use the app to cash checks to reload their pre-paid cards.

"In addition, as consumers continue to adopt smartphones in record numbers," DeBello added, "companies in other industries are contacting us to develop new ways to build applications that attract and retain customers. The recent launch of our Mobile Imaging Cloud™ allows these companies to use our mobile-imaging technology to create solutions utilizing the camera as a keyboard to simplify the consumer experience."

Other highlights of Mitek's third quarter of fiscal 2011 included:

  • Mitek recently launched its Mobile Imaging Cloud Service, which provides mobile application developers and businesses with a fast, cost-effective way to create smartphone and tablet apps that use the camera as an input method for a wide variety of tasks, eliminating the need to keystroke data from documents.
  • Mitek shares were approved for trade on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol "MITK."
  • The issuance of four new patents for Mobile Deposit and imaging technologies through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
  • Adoption of Mobile Deposit by another Tier 1 bank, making six of the nation's Top 10 banks, and by 40 new customers.
  • Mitek's Mobile Photo Bill Pay™ application was chosen as a "Best of Show" at the Finovate Spring 2011 conference in San Francisco.

DeBello will discuss the third-quarter financial results in a conference call for shareholders, financial analysts and other interested parties at 1:30 p.m. PDT / 4:30 p.m. EDT today.
