Importantly, we signed US Bank as our first major customer for Mobile Photo Bill Pay, and we look forward to their commercial launch early this year.We also continued to build our IP portfolio with the issuance of our sixth mobile imaging patent issued." Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $3.3 million compared to total revenue of $3.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company signed a number of large software licenses for its Mobile Deposit, Mobile Photo Bill Pay and other mobile imaging products; however, a portion of the revenue from these licenses is recurring in nature and will be recognized in future periods. GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.4 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to GAAP net income of $26,000, or breakeven on a per share basis, in the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $700,000, or $0.03 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $453,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Total operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 were $4.7 million compared to $3.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
