SHANGHAI, China and CUPERTINO, Calif., February 11, 2016 /GlobeNewswire/ — 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 Wuhan Dangdai Science & Technology Industries Group Inc. (“DANGDAI”) has agreed to invest $43.13 million in 2.27 million shares of the Company’s common stock, a 19.4% stake investment, at $19 per share, representing a premium of 10.4% over yesterday’s closing price. Based in Wuhan, China, DANGDAI is a conglomerate with a substantial medical and pharmaceutical portfolio in China.

The Company has received $5 million and issued 263,158 shares to DANGDAI. Hubei Province Department of Commerce is processing DANGDAI’s remaining funding of $38.13 million as an outbound foreign direct investment. The Company expects funding completion before April 15, 2016. As part of the consideration, CBMG has extended an invitation to DANGDAI to occupy an observer seat on the Company’s Board of Directors.

“We appreciate the huge vote of confidence from DANGDAI. We are delighted that such an astute, established conglomerate with a major pharmaceutical presence is making this strategic investment in CBMG. Their pharmaceutical portfolio company has a large direct sales force in China with access to thousands of hospitals. The funding will augment resources for our long-term clinical trials in stem cell indications and multiple T-cell Chimeric Antigen Receptor (“CAR-T”) trials in liquid and solid tumor cancers,” said Tony (Bizuo) Liu, incoming Chief Executive Officer (current CFO) of CBMG.

“We are pleased about our strategic investment in CBMG.
