Cord Blood America Updates Shareholders on Argentina
LAS VEGAS and BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (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, today updated shareholders on the progress of Biocordcell Argentina S.A. (BioCells, Inc.), which is 50.1 percent owned by Cord Blood America.
"January through August revenues in 2011 are up 40 percent to $1.18 million (U.S.)," said Diego Rissola, president of BioCells, Inc. "The increase in revenues reflects the fact that we have established franchises in six provinces in Argentina and we opened an office in Miami, Florida, to service the Latin American population there. We are now signing 11 percent more new contracts than we did in the same period in 2010."
"We have been successful with e-marketing, using a new web page and social media. We also now have operations in Brazil and the Dominican Republic, and the development of storing dental pulp is proving to be a potential revenue enhancer for the Company," Mr. Rissola said.
"BioCells of Argentina has performed fantastically in a down global economy. We've realized great growth, profitability, just a good story all around. We're fortunate to have purchased the control position of this ever expanding company," said Matthew Schissler, CEO of Cord Blood America.
