11/21/2007 7:57:41 AM

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. , the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company (http://www.cordblood-america.com) focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally, announced today revenues for the first nine months of 2007 topped $5.698 million, up 121 percent compared to revenues of $2.582 million in the same period in 2006.

Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2007 totaled $1.654 million, up 44.7 percent compared to revenues of $1.143 million in the third quarter of 2006.

The Company posted a gross profit of $2.384 million in the first nine months of 2007 and a gross profit of $994,449 in the third quarter. This compares to 2006 nine-month gross profit of $527,070 and a third quarter gross profit in 2006 of $250,104.

"The significant increase in revenue is partially due to the accretive acquisitions Cord Blood America has made, which increased the number of umbilical cord samples, and increased marketing efforts," said Matthew Schissler, CEO. "We are posting results that should be recognized as significant achievements by the financial markets and by our investors."

One key point Mr. Schissler stressed is that the loss from operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 is only $67, 082, down significantly from $672,239 for the three months ended June 30, 2007. "We said we want to run operationally profitable. This number is the biggest key indicator that the management is committed to this goal," said Cord Blood America's CEO.
