SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mitek Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MITK, www.miteksystems.com, “Mitek” or the “Company”), a global leader in digital identity and digital fraud prevention, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a two year share repurchase program for up to $50 million of its common stock.

“The share repurchase program reflects our confidence in our strategy for long-term profitable growth and our belief that we can capitalize on the substantial market opportunities ahead for our new product offerings,” said David Lyle, CFO of Mitek. “With our strong balance sheet and cash flow, we can repurchase shares while maintaining sufficient cash resources to fund our operations and invest in our growth opportunities.”

The purchases under the share repurchase program may be made from time to time (i) through open market purchases, block trades, privately negotiated transactions, one or more trading plans adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or any combination of the foregoing, in each case in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations or (ii) in such other manner as will comply with the provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The timing and actual number of the shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, market conditions and corporate and regulatory requirements. The Company intends to fund the share repurchases from cash on hand. The share repurchase program does not require the Company to repurchase shares of its common stock and it may be amended, suspended or discontinued at any time.
