Date:1/10/2012

NEWARK, Del., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/-- iBio, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: IBIO) announced today the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 15,385,000 units at $0.65 per unit for gross proceeds of approximately $10 million.  Each unit consists of one share of common stock and 0.75 of a warrant to purchase one share of common stock.  The warrants will have an exercise price of $0.88 per share, will be exercisable beginning one year and one day from the date of issuance, and will expire on the first anniversary of the date they first become exercisable.  The offering is being made pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

iBio plans to use proceeds of the offering for operating costs, including continuing to develop applications of its proprietary technology, business development and for other general corporate purposes.

Roth Capital Partners is acting as sole manager for the offering.  iBio expects to close the transaction, subject to customary conditions, on or about January 13, 2012.

This announcement shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any offer or sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.  The offering will be made only by means of a prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus, copies of which may be obtained from:

Before any investment, an investor should read the prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus, including the information incorporated by reference therein, for more complete information about iBio and this offering.

Separately, as previously disclosed, on November 4, 2011 iBio received notice from NYSE Amex LLC that it was currently below certain of the Exchange's continued listing standards. The Exchange indicated that its review of iBio's Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2011, indicates that iBio was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv), which applies if a listed company has sustained losses that are so substantial in relation to its overall operations or its existing financial resources, or its financial condition has become so impaired that it appears questionable, in the opinion of the Exchange, as to whether iBio will be able to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they mature.

iBio was afforded the opportunity to submit a plan of compliance to the Exchange by November 28, 2011, that demonstrates its ability to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the NYSE Amex Company Guide by January 25, 2012, and iBio submitted that plan on a timely basis. The plan contemplated, among other things, that iBio would complete an equity offering with gross proceeds of approximately $5 million before January 25, 2012 to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv).

On January 4, 2012, the Exchange notified iBio that it had accepted iBio's plan of compliance and granted iBio an extension until January 25, 2012 to regain compliance with the continued listing standards.  iBio will be subject to periodic review by Exchange Staff during the extension period.  Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by the end of the extension period could result in the Company being delisted from the NYSE Amex LLC.

While iBio believes that the public offering described above, if completed, will adequately address the Exchange's concerns, iBio will not be in compliance with the Exchange's listing standards until it completes the offering and the Exchange makes a determination that iBio is in compliance.
