Business Description

Industry: Personal Services » Personal Services
Compare:STAN, HRB, CSV, TUC, SCI » details
Traded in other countries:6CB.Germany
China Cord Blood Corporation was formerly known as Pantheon China Acquisition Corp. On November 3, 2008, the Company entered into an agreement and plan of merger, conversion and share exchange (Merger Agreement) with China Cord Blood Services Corporation (CCBS) and certain shareholders of CCBS, including Golden Meditech Company Limited. The Plan of Merger was approved on June 29, 2009. The closing of business combination transaction between Pantheon and CCBS took place on June 30, 2009, and Pantheon changed its name to China Cord Blood Corporation. China Cord Blood Corporation is now the largest cord blood bank operator in China, with exclusive licenses to operate in Beijing Municipality and Guangdong Province. The company provides cord blood banking services in China. It provides cord blood processing and storage services for expectant parents interested in capturing the opportunities made available by evolving medical treatments and technologies such as cord blood transplants. It also preserves cord blood units donated by the public, provide matching services on such donated units and deliver matching units to patients in need of transplants. Its Beijing-based subsidiary, Jiachenhong, was the operator of the first licensed cord blood bank in China. The PRC government only grants one cord blood banking license per province or municipality. According to the Notice on Guiding Principles Regarding Planning and Establishment of the Blood Station published by China's MOH in December 2005, and also an extension notice published in February 2011, the PRC government intends to authorize up to ten cord blood banks. To date, it has authorized seven such licenses. Its operations currently benefit from multiple exclusive cord blood banking licenses issued in China, including its licenses for Beijing, Guangdong and Zhejiang. It also has a 19.9% equity interest in Qilu, the operator of the exclusive licensed cord blood bank in Shandong province. Its cord blood banking operations primarily consist of its subscription services, which involve the preservation of cord blood for expectant parents as a precautionary healthcare measure for the benefit of their children and other family members. Its subscription services accounted for 99.5%, 99.4% and 99.5% of its revenues for the years ended March 31, 2010, 2011 and 2012, respectively. Its subscribers are required to enter into a subscription contract with it prior to the birth of their children. The contract provides for the collection of cord blood from their newborns at one of its collaborating hospitals and preservation of the cord blood for an initial storage period up to 18 years. On the 18th anniversary, the child, who will have reached adulthood, will have the exclusive right to decide whether to extend the subscription for its services or to relinquish ownership of his or her cord blood for donation to its banks.
