SANTA MONICA, Calif. and LAS VEGAS, July 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI), one of the largest umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation companies (http://www.cordblood-america.com ) focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally, today said its accomplishments in the first half of 2009 are the most significant in the Company's history and Cord Blood America is progressing to its goal of being the most important company in stem cell storage in the world.
Since the end of the mid-point of 2009, Cord Blood America has further secured $7.5 million in long term equity financing for growth and acquisition opportunities; announced it has begun building the one of the largest stem cell labs in the U.S.; and announced hiring of an experienced, successful management team to manage its new laboratory
"On January 6, 2009, the closing CBAI stock price was $0.0017. On July 10, 2009, the closing stock price was 0.0033, a 94% increase in 6 months of trading. That's not where we want to be, we are still very undervalued, and I understand that the day-to-day swings of our very liquid and volatile stock price cause some investor concern," said Matthew Schissler, Chairman and CEO. "I tell investors to take a snapshot of the last six months, not six hours. Micro cap stocks are perhaps not for the faint of heart. We believe we're building a very valuable company and this snapshot of the past six months shows our progress."
"In January, CBAI stated its mission is to lay the foundation for a much stronger healthier company by the end of 2009, which included organic growth, acquisition and debt reduction. As you can see by these highlights, we remain laser-focused on executing these strategies," Mr. Schissler said. "Because of our focus, we were able to raise significant funding to build a lab with the future growth opportunities it affords us. We are also pleased by the current support of stem cell research in Washington, D.C. and Congressional and state legislative focus on family stem cell banking legislation."
