LAS VEGAS, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cord Blood America, Inc. ( (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI) ("CBAI" or the "Company"), the umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally, said today that  President Joseph Vicente was interviewed by analyst Francis Gaskins about the Company's recent financial performance and its strategies for the future.

The entire interview is available at:

Mr. Vicente said in the interview that the Company was able to operate on its own cash in the second quarter of 2012.  Management analyzed "every dollar being spent" and made "reductions across the board, reducing unnecessary expenses that do not contribute to sales.  We are structurally aligning expenses with revenues."

In the interview, Mr. Vicente details some of the Company strategies to increase revenues in the future and said it is important that CBAI "demonstrate profits" to take "advantage of numerous future opportunities" within the stem cell sector. 

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."
