Company Summary

Cord Blood America, Inc.(CBAI), through its wholly owned subsidiary CorCell Companies, Inc., is engaged in the business of collecting, testing, processing and preserving umbilical cord blood, thereby allowing families to preserve cord blood at the birth of a child for potential use in future stem cell therapy.

The umbilical cord which, at birth, traditionally has been thrown away, contains a rich store of stem cells. Cryogenically preserved umbilical cord stem cells have already been used to treat 75 major diseases, including leukemia, severe anemia, metabolic blood disorders and immune deficiencies. This list is guaranteed to grow as medical research learns more about the incredible healing power of stem cells.

There is uniformity in the belief that stem cells will play a key role in fighting disease as we move forward through this century. Some scientists are confident that stem cells will launch a new era in medicine, perhaps even curing some of our most intractable diseases.

PR September 26, 2012 commented Joseph Vicente, President of Cord Blood America. "We are now cash flow positive so the announced approval to increase our authorized shares is primarily to fix legacy issues. Operating activities have already shown marked sequential and year over year improvement while reducing corporate costs creating an advantageous time to improve the capital structure and bring the Company to the next level while broadening its appeal to a wider audience of potential investors." http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&article=54314478

Nine-Months Ended September 30, 2012 Highlights

=====Revenue increase 18% to $4.64 million from $3.93 million in the year ago period.
=====Our cash position increased over 100% to $369,186.
=====Gross margin increased to 72.7% from 70.5% in the year ago period.
=====SG&A decreased 24% or $1.17 million to $3.64 million from $4.81 million.

For the second consecutive quarter, we demonstrated marked improvement in three key performance metrics; revenue growth, expense control and EBITDA. The result is that we have improved our cash position, while reducing the current liabilities without adding to the debt obligations of the Company. We continue to see consistent growth in the number of new customers added each quarter that will layer on top of our existing recurring revenue base. We expect our new customers to have an annual recurring duration of approximately eighteen years demonstrating the significant lifetime value of each new client," commented Joseph Vicente, President of Cord Blood America, Inc.

Share Structure

Finally, CBAI's President said that although the Company's financial situation has improved and the Company did not take any additional financing in Q2, it is not generating enough cash to pay off its entire debt balance. He urged shareholders to approve an increase in the number of authorized shares "as a means to retire out legacy debt and move forward." http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&article=53904255
