Formerly Pantheon China Acquisition Corp.

CHINA CORD BLOOD CORPORATION, a leading provider of cord blood banking services in China. Expectant parents pay us to process and store the cord blood of their children at birth for potential future use in medical treatment of the children or their family members. The payment structure of our contracts with subscribers enable us to enjoy a steady stream of long term cash inflows from annual storage fees. We enter into 18-year-contracts with our subscribers and charge an initial processing fee at birth and a storage fee each year. These contracts can be terminated early by the parents or further extended, at the option of the children, after the children reach adulthood. We expect annual storage fees to contribute an increasing proportion of our revenue as the number of our subscribers accumulated over the years continues to grow. In addition to our fee-based commercial services, we also preserve cord blood units donated by the public and charge fees for matching units provided for patients in need of transplants. This revenue accounts for a small percentage of our total revenue.


The PRC government authorities have been following a "one license per region" policy, allowing each licensee, including us, to operate within its own region without competition. The application process for a cord blood banking license takes several years, during which time the applicant usually incurs a substantial amount of initial investments, including constructing cord blood bank facilities to demonstrate to the government authorities that it is capable of meeting the stringent application requirements. This licensing process may deter newcomers with fewer resources and less experience from competing for licenses with established cord blood banking operators in China.


Our management team successfully pioneered the commercialization of cord blood banking services in China. Jiachenhong, our Beijing-based subsidiary with operations dating back to 2002, was the operator of the first licensed cord blood bank in China. We have also developed a hospital network consisting of over 90 major hospitals in Beijing to perform cord blood collection services for our subscribers. To expand the geographic coverage of our business, we acquired the right to operate in Guangdong through the acquisition of Nuoya in May 2007. The acquisition enabled us to significantly increase the size of the market that we can address. We believe we will be able to apply the experience we gained in our successful operation in Beijing to our more recently commenced operation in Guangdong. As of June 30, 2009, we had capacity to store approximately 645,000 additional units, and we believe we have the ability to further expand our capacity to meet the increasing market demand.


Currently, we are the sole cord blood banking licensee in Beijing and Guangdong. So far, cord blood banking licenses have been issued for only six of China's 31 regions, with another four licenses expected to be issued by 2010. We expect to continue to grow our business through existing market penetration and geographical expansion. Our existing operations cover an aggregate population of approximately 110 million, including 94 million in Guangdong, which is larger than all but 12 countries in the world. According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, there were 1.2 million newborns in Beijing and Guangdong in 2007. As the PRC government authorities issue cord blood banking licenses in more regions, we believe that there will be significant growth opportunities in China. China has a population of approximately 1.3 billion. According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, there were 15.9 million newborns in China in 2007, representing approximately 12.0% of newborns worldwide. In addition to the large number of newborns in China, we expect increased demand for our services to be driven by a number of factors, including increasing disposable income in urban areas; greater attention to health issues as people become more financially secure; emphasis on children under China's one-child policy; and heightened public awareness of the benefits associated with cord blood storage.


Principal activities

China Cord Blood Services Corporation (the "Company") and its subsidiaries (collectively the "Group") are principally engaged in the provision of umbilical cord blood storage and ancillary services in its cord blood banks in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"). As of March 31, 2009, the Group operates two cord blood banks in the Beijing municipality and Guangdong Province, the PRC.

The Group provides cord blood testing, processing and storage services under the direction of subscribers for a cord blood processing fee and a storage fee. The Group also tests, processes and stores donated cord blood, and provides matching services to the public for a fee.

The operation of cord blood banks in the PRC is regulated by certain laws and regulations. Cord blood bank operators in the PRC are required to possess a Blood Station Operation License. The licensing process for a cord blood bank is stringent and lengthy. The Ministry of Health of the PRC and the local Departments of Health have granted Blood Station Operation Licenses to cord blood banks that provide cord blood banking services. Cord blood banks collecting cord blood units from donors and providing matching cord blood units to the public without a duly obtained Blood Station Operation License face the risk of being shut down by the government. Only six cord blood banking licenses have been issued by the authorities as of March 31, 2009, of which the Company holds two. Due to the lack of a consistent and well-developed regulatory framework, operation in the cord blood banking industry in the PRC involves significant ambiguities, uncertainties and risks. The industry is highly regulated and any unilateral changes in regulations by the authorities may have a significant adverse impact on the Group's results of operations.

Latest financials

SEC Filings:




  1. It's tough to get shares right now..
  2. China has a one-child policy, which feeds into the desire for parents to do all they can to preserve the life of that one child.  Preservation of cord stem cells are a means to that end.
  3. Company is already profitable, and anticipates strong growth as more and more Chinese are educated about the benefits.
  4. As far as I know, CO is the only free-trading pure-play Chinese cord blood stock on the U.S. exchanges.
  5. There exists the potential for this stock to become a cult stock due to it being the one and only way to play cord blood storage in China.
  6. Warrants  provide an interesting alternative for leverage, and with an exercise price of $5 they are currently well in the money (CNDZF closing price on 9/4:  $7.10)
