CreditRiskMonitor Announces 1Q Results
VALLEY COTTAGE, NY—May 9, 2017—CreditRiskMonitor (OTCQX: CRMZ) reported that for the 3 months ended March 31, 2017 revenues increased 4% to $3.24 million compared to $3.12 million in last year’s first quarter. Net loss for the quarter was approximately $244,300 compared to a net loss of approximately $90,300 in the prior year period. Cash and cash equivalents decreased approximately $378,900 since 2016 year-end, to $8.84 million, and was down $39,000 from the balance at March 31, 2016.
Jerry Flum, CEO, said, “Our quarterly results were negatively impacted primarily by a planned increase in our staff to support new product and marketing efforts. The Company had a change in our marketing leadership in early 2017 resulting in a deferral of planned programs. We have hired a new Chief Marketing Officer who is currently reviewing our 2017 marketing plans. We’re still debt free and our strong cash position will allow us to implement these marketing initiatives.”
