Mitek Announces Receipt of Notice from Nasdaq

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 13, 2024-- Mitek Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: MITK, www.miteksystems.com, “Mitek” or the “Company”), a global leader in digital identity and fraud prevention, today reported that it received an additional Staff Determination (the “Staff Determination”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”), as a result of the Company’s failure to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 (the “Form 10-Q”) in a timely manner, which serves as an additional basis for delisting the Company’s securities from Nasdaq. The Company remains delinquent in filing its Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2023 (the “Form 10-K”). The Rule requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company previously reported in Forms 12b-25 filed with the SEC on December 15, 2023 and February 9, 2024, that the Company was unable to file the Form 10-K and Form 10-Q within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense.

As previously reported, the Company is subject to a Mandatory Panel Monitor for a period of one year, or until November 6, 2024, which requires the Staff to promptly issue a delisting determination in the event that the Company fails to maintain compliance with the Rule. As previously disclosed on December 18, 2023, the Company intended to appeal a determination by the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department to delist the Company’s securities due to the Company’s failure to timely file the Form 10-K with the SEC. On December 26, 2023, the Company timely requested a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) and requested that the automatic stay of suspension be extended through the completion of the hearings process and the expiration of any additional extension period granted by the Panel following the hearing. The hearing is scheduled for March 19, 2024 and the request for the automatic stay of suspension was granted.

In response to the Staff Determination, the Company intends to file the Form 10-K and Form 10-Q as promptly as possible in order to regain compliance with the Rule.
