Cellular Biomedicine Group Responds to Purported Class Action Lawsuit

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cellular Biomedicine Group Inc. (Nasdaq:CBMG) ("CBMG" or the "Company"), a biomedicine firm engaged in the development of effective stem cell therapies for degenerative diseases and immunotherapies for cancer, today announced that it intends to vigorously defend against the claims made in a putative securities class action lawsuit filed against the company and two of its officers in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint is based in large part on an anonymous article published on the Seeking Alpha website, which CBMG has already addressed on its website. CBMG has reviewed the complaint and views the allegations as meritless.

Adrienne Marie Ward of Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP ("EGS") will serve as lead defense counsel for CBMG and its officers. Barry Grossman of EGS will also advise the Company in connection with its defense of the class actions.
