Fiscal 2023 Second Quarter Financial Highlights
Fiscal 2023 First Six Months Financial Highlights
Mitek CEO Max Carnecchia's Comments
"Our strong performance in the second quarter highlights the market-leading position of our solutions in the large and growing markets we address. Our Identity revenue was up 35% year over year in the second quarter, reinforcing our position as a leader in the ever-changing identity and fraud landscape. Our Deposits business also delivered another strong quarter, with revenue up 35% year over year. Looking ahead, we expect revenue growth in the second half of the year to moderate as a result of timing of deals falling in the first half of the year, as well as the difficult macroeconomic environment; however with our strong first half performance we are reiterating our full year guidance which calls for 18% revenue growth year over year at the midpoint and non-GAAP operating margins in the range of 30% to 31%."

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 amortization and acquisition-related costs, intellectual property litigation costs, executive transition costs, stock compensation expenses, non-recurring audit fees, 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.
