CBMG Today Responded to the Class Action Lawsuit

SHANGHAI, China and PALO ALTO, Calif., June 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cellular Biomedicine Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CBMG) ("CBMG" or the "Company"), a biomedicine firm engaged in the development of new treatments for degenerative and cancerous diseases, today reminded its shareholders to read the Q&A posted in the Company's website (view here) regarding the class action law suit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the Company, its CEO and CFO. The lawsuit was filed by a shareholder who bought 100 shares of CBMG stock the day before an anonymous blogger, who professes to have had a short position in CBMG's stock, published a false and misleading article about the company. As often is the case, after the filing, eighteen (18) law firms sent out thirty-nine (39) advertisements in the last two months to recruit shareholders to serve as lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit. As of the June 22, 2015 deadline set by the Court, no other lawsuits had been filed, and only one other shareholder, who owned the stock for less than 2 weeks and sold the day the article was published, had come forward seeking to serve as lead plaintiff. We attribute the overall lack of response to the lawyers' notices to the positive support of the majority of our long-term shareholders.

Dr. William (Wei) Cao, Chief Executive Officer of CBMG, commented: "We have received and reviewed the complaint. We believe this suit is without merit and filled with patently false information, and we will vigorously defend the Company and ourselves in the matter. We are delighted to report that our employees are remaining vigilantly focused on our fore running Knee Osteoarthritis program and diligently working on launching the cancer CAR-T clinical trials while absorbing the recently acquired vaccine program."
