China Cord Blood Corporation Updates Status Regarding Share Repurchase Program

HONG KONG, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Cord Blood Corporation ("CCBC" or "the Company") (NYSE: CO), the first and largest cord blood bank operator in China, today announced that since the authorization of the stock repurchase program on September 15, 2010, the Company has repurchased approximately 309,000 ordinary shares for approximately US$1.6 million through October 6, 2010 at an average price per share of US$5.32.  This amount represents approximately 10.7% of the total repurchase program authorized by CCBC's Board of Directors, with approximately US$13.4 million remaining in the Company's buyback authorization for repurchase prior to September 2011.

Ms. Ting Zheng, Chairperson and CEO of China Cord Blood Corporation, stated, "We are committed to enhancing shareholder value, and our actions in the past weeks demonstrate our commitment to our shareholders and management's confidence in the Company's business and future prospects.  We do not believe the current share price reflects the intrinsic value of the Company's business.  Our expansion plan in Zhejiang province that was announced in September, together with our intention to execute the warrant exchange offer to simplify our capital structure, should contribute to a stronger earnings profile.  We plan to continue to grow our existing business, and at the same time, seek opportunities to expand our business in China and the Asia Pacific region."
