U.S. Bank Partners With Mitek for Mobile Photo Bill Pay, Will Launch to
Consumers in Early 2013

MINNEAPOLIS and SAN DIEGO, Dec. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Bank,
fifth-largest bank in the United States and lead bank of U.S. Bancorp
(NYSE:USB), and Mitek Systems (Nasdaq:MITK), a leading mobile imaging software
solutions provider and the pioneer of Mobile Deposit^® technology, have
entered into a strategic mobile technology partnership to offer Mitek's Mobile
Photo Bill Pay^™ product to U.S. Bank customers.

Mobile Photo Bill Pay will allow U.S. Bank customers to set up bill payments
by simply snapping a picture of their paper bill using their camera-enabled
smartphone or tablet. The new feature eliminates the need to manually enter
biller and payment information, and allows the customer to make bill payments
directly from their mobile device.

Partnering with Mitek, and leveraging its Mobile Photo Bill Pay product, U.S.
Bank will be the first leading financial institution to offer this innovative
service to customers in early 2013.

"Mobile banking and mobile payments continue to be a priority for U.S. Bank as
we take advantage of new technology and deliver added convenience to customers
via their mobile devices," said Niti Badarinath, senior vice president and
head of mobile banking at U.S. Bank. "U.S. Bank has been a leader in mobile
banking and mobile payments since we first piloted a contactless payment
solution in 2008, and were one of the first banks to offer a mobile check
deposit feature in 2010. Our investment in mobile innovation will remain
strong as we enter into 2013."

"Our partnership with U.S. Bank underscores both companies' deep commitment to
innovation and customer satisfaction," said James DeBello, president and chief
executive officer of Mitek Systems. "We believe that Mobile Photo Bill Pay is
the next killer app for financial services, and we're delighted that U.S. Bank
is leading the mobile banking charge. Mobile Photo Bill Pay builds on the
success of Mitek's Mobile Deposit technology, used by millions of consumers
around the country to make billions of dollars in deposits, and enables the
next logical step in U.S. Bank's mobile strategy. Together we will redefine
what consumers expect from their mobile banking experience with the
convenience of anywhere, anytime deposits, bill payments and more."

Mitek's Mobile Photo Bill Pay (patent-pending) enables consumers with a
smartphone or tablet to simply take a picture of a bill or remittance coupon;
the technology then automatically extracts relevant information from the paper
bill and auto-populates the fields required to make a mobile payment. The
consumer then schedules the payment and clicks "pay." Mitek's unique and
template-free imaging technology gives consumers a convenient new bill payment
option via their mobile device. Consumers can quickly add a new payee to their
online bill pay, pay one-time or non-recurring bills, and set up recurring
bills and payments from anywhere, at anytime. The ability to add a new payee
with a mobile device is a key competitive advantage over existing mobile bill
pay applications.
