CreditRiskMonitor 2016 Operating Results

CreditRiskMonitor reports operating results for the year ended December 31, 2016

VALLEY COTTAGE, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/17 -- CreditRiskMonitor (OTCQX: CRMZ) reported that revenues for the year ended December 31, 2016 increased 3% to $12.81 million compared to fiscal 2015. Net income for fiscal 2016 was approximately $52,400 compared to $513,200 in the prior year. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities at the end of 2016 increased to $9.22 million from the 2015 year-end balance of $8.96 million.

Jerry Flum, CEO, said, "2016's reported earnings were negatively impacted by our decision to increase our investment in new marketing infrastructure and programs. The head of this marketing effort resigned mid-year, and this initiative fell short of our 2016 plans. We have hired a new marketing leader, and expect to see the positive impact of this investment in 2018. We're still debt-free and our strong balance sheet provides us with financial flexibility to manage our company for long-term results."
