LOUISVILLE, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/05/15 -- AntriaBio, Inc. ("Company") (OTCQB: ANTB), a biopharmaceutical corporation focused on developing novel extended release therapies, announced today that it has successfully raised approximately $7 million in a private placement transaction. At $1.85 per unit, institutions and accredited investors were issued one share of common stock and one warrant exercisable for three years at $2.50 for one share of common stock.
