Date:2/10/2011

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (http://www.cordblood-america.com) (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, announced today a Special Meeting of its shareholders on April 21, 2011 to consider a proposal to effect a reverse stock split of one share for each 500 outstanding shares and then proportionally increase authorized shares.

"We are asking for our investors' support at this critical point in the Company's growth.  Approval of this measure will assist in our efforts to make Cord Blood America a financially stronger company," Mr. Schissler said.  "From 2007 to 2010, Cord Blood America was able to aggressively reduce its principal debt obligation by more than $8 million.  This was a necessary and critical step and markedly improved our balance sheet.  Please note the dramatic graph linked to this news release demonstrating the impact of our debt reduction.  There are tremendous opportunities in our future, and we need to take this next step towards our path to profitability.  We are asking our investors to help CBAI seize these opportunities."

"The Board of Directors believes that implementing a reverse stock split may increase the market price for CBAI common stock as fewer shares will be outstanding," said Matthew Schissler, CEO and co-founder.  "It also believes that the reverse split may encourage future interest and trading in CBAI common stock."

"Additionally, our current cap structure limits strategic long term investment assisting in our acquisition program as well as other growth initiatives. We've had a great run on raising capital, but our future endeavors require a tighter capitalization," Mr. Schissler said.  "We believe this may also assist the Company in its long term goal for placement on a more prestigious stock exchange."

Proxy information on voting is being distributed in a Schedule 14A filing available at www.sec.gov. Shareholders of record on March 10, 2011 may vote their proxy.
