Explanatory Note
On December 3, 2020, Mitek Systems, Inc. (the “Company”), filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Form 8-K”) to report that Jeffrey C. Davison, the Chief Financial Officer, provided advanced notice on December 1, 2020, to the Company of his intent to retire from his position during calendar year 2021. The Company had indicated in the Original Form 8-K that the terms of
Mr. Davison’s retirement arrangement, including the effective date of the transition, would be disclosed in an amendment to the
Original Form 8-K once the effective date of Mr. Davison’s retirement had been determined and an agreement been reached.
This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A amends the Original Form 8-K, and is being filed solely for the purpose of providing the disclosure related to Mr. Davison's retirement arrangement as stated in Item 5.02 of the Original Form 8-K. Accordingly, the Company hereby amends the Original Form 8-K to eliminate the last sentence under Item 5.01 thereof and add the disclosure referenced below.

The Agreement provides that Mr. Davison shall receive: (i) a lump-sum cash amount equal to 100% of his annual base salary now in effect and (ii) an additional lump sum of cash in the amount equal to the accrued amount of his 2021 bonus accrual at plan and at target through the date of his retirement. In addition, Mr. Davison is entitled to receive a lump sum cash amount equal to twelve (12) times the amount required to pay for one month of COBRA continuation coverage under the Company’s medical, vision and dental programs.
