CreditRiskMonitor Announces 1Q Results and Stock Repurchase Plan

VALLEY COTTAGE, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - CreditRiskMonitor (OTCBB: CRMZ) reported that revenues increased 10% to $2.44 million for the 3 months ended March 31, 2011 compared to last year's first quarter, although operating income for the quarter was down.

Jerry Flum, CEO, said, "The widespread concerns of our subscribers and potential subscribers about corporate credit risk, driven by the Great Recession, gradually diminished during 2010. Their concerns about cost control have continued. It became apparent to us that our double-digit growth was slowing during 2010. So, in the third quarter of 2010 we reorganized our sales department and began to change our sales process to adapt to this new environment. The new selling method is more consistent with reduced 'impulse' buying and also with our prospective new clients' increased focus on cost control. We are seeing early signs that these changes in our sales process will be successful, over the long term, but may take several more quarters to implement fully. At the same time, we have continued to execute our long-run strategy, making investments as planned in improved data quality and additional licensed data. These incremental costs have reduced our net income compared to the same period last year. However, we believe this spending will prove important to the Company's long-term growth and profitability."

Flum continued, "On April 21, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors authorized the Company to repurchase up to $1 million of its common stock through the end of fiscal 2012. Our balance sheet continues to be strong -- we're debt-free with a cash, cash equivalent and marketable securities balance of $6.86 million at March 31, 2011." Under the program, the Company may repurchase shares from time to time for cash in automated trading plan purchases, open market transactions, in privately negotiated transactions or by other means in accordance with applicable federal securities laws. The timing and amount of repurchase transactions will be determined by the Company's management based on their evaluation of market conditions, share price and other factors. There is no assurance that the Company will purchase shares and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
