(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, a biological insurance policy, to families nationwide and internationally, today announced that the Company's management team and board of directors has modified the proposed one share for each 500 outstanding shares reverse stock split to one share for each 100 outstanding shares. In addition, CBAI has adjusted down the authorized shares from a pro-rata 500 million to 250 million.
"We have spent a lot of time over the last three weeks listening to our shareholders," said Matt Schissler, CEO and co-founder of Cord Blood America.

Shareholders are being asked to adopt both of management's proposals at the Company's Special Shareholders Meeting on April 21, 2010," Mr. Schissler said.
