SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI), the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company (http://www.cordblood-america.com ) focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally, said today that it has reduced its secured debt by a total of $4.194 million in the first five months of 2009.
"On April 6th, 2009, Cord Blood America announced it had decreased its debt by $1.75 million this year," said Matthew Schissler, Cord Blood America Founder and CEO. "Since that time, we have further reduced our secured debt by $1.627 million and have eliminated liquidated damages totaling $817,000."
"We have been very forthright with our investors. We have said there are three strong pillars needed to take CBAI to the next level. One is debt reduction, and today's announcement shows our achievement in that sector. The second is organic growth, and our deferred revenues for the first quarter were up 20 percent. The third pillar is acquisitions, and we recently announced Cord Blood America is in the process of building or buying a stem cell laboratory for increased acquisition capacity and higher gross margin," Mr. Schissler said.
"Our strategy for 2009 is in place and we stand by our ability to perform and to make all three pillars strong and sturdy. We urge our shareholders to follow our progress in these important sectors," Cord Blood America's founder said.
