SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc.

Proceeds of the investment are anticipated to be used to fund new stem cell initiatives, potential acquisitions, and working capital needs. Matthew Schissler, founder and CEO, said the proceeds, once available and when coupled with internally generated revenues, should be sufficient to fund operations in the foreseeable future.

The Company may drawdown funds from the fund, based on terms and market conditions, through the issuance of Series A Preferred Stock and five-year Warrants exercisable for shares of common stock.

"This long term equity financing will allow for the company to grow and expand in ways we have not seen before, without the constant pressure of discounted debt financing. As stated throughout 2009, our three pillars of planned business success include organic growth, acquisitions and debt reduction. This financing will provide us the capital needed for the first two, without adding debt to the balance sheet."

"To have secured this financing in these difficult economic times is a major signal and endorsement of our business strategies and our management team," Mr. Schissler said.
