CreditRiskMonitor's Revenue Grows 37% for Third Quarter of 2009

VALLEY COTTAGE, NY--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - CreditRiskMonitor (OTCBB: CRMZ) reported that revenues increased 37% and 34% to $2.05 million and $5.72 million for the 3 and 9 months ended September 30, 2009, respectively. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities at the end of the nine-month period totaled $4.97 million, up $1.10 million from fiscal 2008 year-end.

Jerry Flum, CEO, said, "Our revenue continues to be counter-cyclical during these turbulent economic times. Our operating profit for the 3rd quarter was the highest in our history. In addition to the usual metrics for evaluating performance we also utilize cash return on net worth and tangible net worth, as shown in the table below. We are achieving these high rates of return without any long-term debt and with working capital at the highest level in our history."
