VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y., March 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CreditRiskMonitor (OTCQX:CRMZ) reported that revenues for the year ended December 31, 2017 increased to $13.39 million up 4% compared to 2016. Net income for 2017 was approximately $12,100 compared to $52,400 in the prior year. Cash and cash equivalents at the end of 2017 decreased to $8.74 million from the 2016 year-end balance of $9.22 million.
Jerry Flum, CEO, said, “We did not see significant results yet from our new Financial Statement Sourcing (launched 4Q 2017) or PAYCE™ (launched 1Q 2018) products, or from our other new marketing efforts, but we’re committed to continue investing in new products and marketing infrastructure. There is a natural lag on these expenses and the impact on revenue. The Company is still debt-free and our strong cash position allows us to continue to undertake these initiatives.”
