Cord Blood America Reports First Quarter Financial Results; Gross Profits Increase

LOS ANGELES, May 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI), the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company ( focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally, today reported that revenues for the first quarter of 2008, ended March 31, totaled $1.43 million. Revenues from the Company's primary umbilical cord blood storage business increased 10 percent while reducing marketing and advertising costs. Overall revenues decreased because of a change in business strategies at the Company's advertising subsidiary, Rainmakers International, to focus on low cost, high volume, annuity based advertising.

"While there are areas to improve in the quarter, we are especially pleased that Gross Profit increased from 35 percent of revenues to 45 percent, because a significantly higher proportion of revenues are coming from the higher margin umbilical cord blood processing and storage business," said Matthew Schissler, CEO, Cord Blood America. "We are confident that our continued focus on recurring revenue models for both Rain and the umbilical cord blood business will pay dividends in the near future."
