CreditRiskMonitor Announces 2020 1Q Results
VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. - CreditRiskMonitor (OTCQX: CRMZ) reported that revenues for the three months ended Mar. 31, 2020 increased 6% to $3.71 million compared to $3.50 million in last year’s first quarter. Net loss for the quarter was approximately $198,300 compared to a net loss of approximately $136,500 in the prior year period. Cash and cash equivalents increased approximately $22,500 since 2019 year-end, to $8.30 million, and was down $91,700 from the balance at Mar. 31, 2019.
Jerry Flum, CEO, said, “Our net loss increased despite growing sales as the Company continues to invest in an enhanced infrastructure and additional content, which is in addition to strengthening our customer service staff. These strategic investments adversely impact our short-term profits; however, our balance sheet provides us the flexibility to manage our company for long-term shareholder value. Since the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, our team has demonstrated resiliency and fortitude in navigating through this challenge.”
