"Fiscal 2011 was an exceptional year for Mitek. We doubled our revenue and signed more than 10 new agreements with Fortune 500 customers. We are seeing the market opportunity for Mitek's mobile imaging solutions continue to accelerate," said President and CEO James B. DeBello . "Companies like Progressive, who signed a definitive agreement, and other global Fortune 500 corporations who want to capture the next generation of consumers are investing in our mobile imaging solutions and extending our opportunities beyond financial services."

"Mitek's fourth quarter was its most productive quarter to date," added DeBello. Mitek reported that the total number of Mobile Deposit® signed customers more than doubled to 161 financial institutions over the past quarter, including the signing of an additional Tier 1 bank.

"For example, we announced a mobile check cashing capability to Mobile Deposit for the more than 50 million unbanked consumers in the U.S. and presently we are in discussions with several large distribution companies to provide commercial check deposit at the point of delivery."

Mitek's mobile imaging algorithms enable smartphones and tablets to extract data from a photo of any document, thereby enabling consumer friendly applications and an enhanced mobile shopping experience.  "During the fourth quarter Mitek introduced Mobile Balance transfer, a solution which allows a consumer to shop for a better credit card rate.
