CreditRiskMonitor Reports Record Results for 2009

VALLEY COTTAGE, NY--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) - CreditRiskMonitor (OTCBB: CRMZ) announced that for the year ended December 31, 2009 revenues increased 34% to $7.85 million and net income was $1.74 million versus $372,000 last year.

Jerry Flum, CEO, said, "2009 was a banner year for our company -- with record operating revenues and operating income, our cash balance at year-end was the highest in our history even after payment of our first-ever dividend to shareholders in December. The Company's 2009 earnings were augmented by the reversal of the tax valuation allowance, because we now expect that the Company will be able to utilize its net operating loss carry-forwards prior to their expiration. Plus, this strong performance was achieved during a period of economic contraction."
