MINNEAPOLIS -- March 7, 2013

U.S. Bank is the first major bank in the United States to deliver Mobile Photo
BillPay to its customers. This feature allows customers to set up bill
payments by snapping a picture of their bills with their camera-enabled
smartphone or tablet. By eliminating the need to manually enter payment
information, it makes adding or transferring billers and paying bills a snap.

U.S. Bank announced in December 2012 that it was partnering with San
Diego-based Mitek to bring Mobile Photo Bill Pay™ to its customers. Recent
research forecasts Mobile Photo Bill Pay adoption to reach 33 percent among
adult U.S. consumers by 2018, and result in 1.4 billion bills migrating to the
mobile channel. Another study suggests that more than 1 in 5 customers would
use this feature.

“We continue to leverage the capabilities of smartphones, and use innovative
ways of making banking more convenient for our customers,” said Niti
Badarinath, senior vice president and leader of U.S. Bank’s mobile banking
channel. “U.S. Bank customers were among the first in the nation to be able to
use their mobile device to deposit checks. Now, we’ve made it really easy for
our customers to enroll and use BillPay, add billers and pay bills whenever
and wherever they choose.”

U.S. Bank is using Mitek’s patented Mobile Photo Bill Pay technology that
automatically and securely extracts relevant information from the paper bill
and populates the fields required to make a mobile payment. The consumer can
review the information and schedule the payment by clicking “Pay Now.” The new
U.S. Bank Mobile Photo BillPay feature is available to customers free of
charge within U.S. Bank’s iPhone, iPad and Android mobile banking apps.
