VALLEY COTTAGE, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 26, 2016) - CreditRiskMonitor (OTCQX: CRMZ) announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular dividend of $0.05 per outstanding share of its common stock.

Jerry Flum, CEO said, "In past years, we have consistently paid a dividend, but called it a 'special dividend'. I'm pleased to announce that the Board of Directors now believes our financial strength enables us to pay this as a regular dividend.
