Las Vegas, NV, February 24, 2014 - CardioVascular BioTherapeutics, Inc. (“CVBT” or the “Company”).

Montano, Viktoriya Tamlenova Montano, Ernest Montano III, and Joong Ki Baik) motion to vacate, or in the alternative, amend the status quo order filed on January 31, 2014. Accordingly, the Interim Board of Directors consisting of Mickael A. Flaa, Grant Gordon, Calvin A. Wallen III, Jon Ross, and Robert Schleizer, remains authorized to act on behalf of CVBT, subject to various restrictions imposed by a status quo order.
