Cryo-Cell International, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2009 Results

Company Reports Quarterly Net Income of $536,000

OLDSMAR, Fla., April 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cryo-Cell International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CCEL) (the "Company"), one of the world's largest and most established family cord blood banks, today announced results for the first quarter ended February 28, 2009. Consolidated revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 were approximately $3.9 million compared to approximately $4.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The Company reported net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 of approximately $536,000, or $0.05 per basic common share, compared to a net loss of approximately ($247,000), or ($0.02) per basic common share, in the first fiscal quarter of fiscal 2008. The net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 is primarily the result of a 23% decrease in marketing, general and administrative expenses and a 23% decrease in cost of sales.

The Company recognized approximately $338,000 in licensee income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009, compared to approximately $183,000 for the same period in 2008. Of the licensee income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009, $100,000 was related to an installment of a non-refundable up-front license fee from the licensee of the Company's U-Cord program in Venezuela. The remaining approximately $238,000 is royalty income earned on subsequent processing and storage of specimens in geographical areas where the Company has license agreements, and from the sale of sub-license agreements by licensees. Licensee income for the same period in 2008 consisted of approximately $183,000 of royalty income earned on the subsequent processing and storage of specimens in geographical areas where the Company has license agreements, and from the sale of sub-license agreements by licensees.

As of February 28, 2009, the Company had approximately $5.7 million in available cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and other investments. The Company had no long-term debt at the end of the quarter.

"We are clearly encouraged by Cryo-Cell's performance in the first quarter of fiscal 2009, which represents the Company's second consecutive quarter of recurring profitability," stated Mercedes Walton, Chairman and CEO. "Despite the weakness in the U.S. economy and its impact on discretionary consumer spending, Cryo-Cell is pleased to deliver first quarter 2009 earnings of $536,000 and gross margins of 71%. In addition, recent public policy developments on stem cell research have helped generate heightened public awareness on the enormous benefits and potential stem cells offer. This increased awareness, in turn, may have potentially contributed to the 94% increase in the Company's first quarter 2009 pipeline of prospective clients when compared to the same period in 2008. We believe that growing public interest will offer greater opportunity to help discover better treatments and cures for millions of Americans suffering from debilitating disorders such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's."

"We are also pleased with the progress we have made with the commercialization of the exclusive ground-breaking service, C'elle, which is based on Cryo-Cell's expansive IP technology portfolio. This innovative and proprietary service is available both as a standalone product and as a uniquely differentiated 'Protect Baby, Protect Mom'(R) bundle with our signature U-Cord(R) product. In addition, we are optimistic about the progress of our promising pipeline of research collaborations, which are focused on the development of potential breakthrough therapies that utilize Cryo-Cell's patent-pending stromal menstrual stem cell technology."

"Cryo-Cell continues to make substantial progress both strategically and operationally. Our momentum is strong, and we anticipate that shareholder value will increasingly reflect the Company's solid performance and growing enterprise value, potentially driven in part by a loyal and emerging base of over 175,000 clients worldwide; Cryo-Cell's expansive IP portfolio and independently funded R&D pipeline; in addition to the Company's progressive global leadership in stem cell innovation," Walton concluded.
