CreditRiskMonitor Reports Earnings and Prepays Debt

VALLEY COTTAGE, NY--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - CreditRiskMonitor (OTCBB: CRMZ) reported operating revenues of $1.37 million and net income of $40,000 for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008 compared to $1.16 million and $20,000, respectively, for the first quarter of 2007. The Company fully retired its debt early in the second quarter.

Jerry Flum, CEO, said, "Despite the credit and debt contraction, our revenues were at highest level in the Company's history and continued to grow at a double digit pace for the first quarter. This is the seventh consecutive quarter in which we're reporting an operating profit and the tenth consecutive quarter that we've generated positive cash flow. In light of the current interest rate environment and the Company's strong cash position, subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company elected to prepay the remaining balance on its 9.5% promissory note. As the U.S. economy slows we believe our Company, for the reasons outlined in the 'Investor Information - Business Overview' section of our website, should continue to grow."

The following presents the operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2008 and 2007:
