TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 29, 2009) - Primary Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PYC) reports that it recorded net income of $197,216 and comprehensive income of $2,626,343 during the quarter ended March 31, 2009. The Company earned sufficient interest income from its loans and cash deposits to fund its operations. Increases in the value of investments recognized during the quarter provided the reported comprehensive income.

At March 31, Primary had a portfolio of investments that included $15.3 million in investments, $2.0 million in loans receivable and $3.4 million in mineral properties. In addition, the Company retained $9.9 million in cash and cash equivalents.
