Auxogyn Raises $18 Million in Series B Financing
On June 5, 2012, privately held reproductive health company Auxogyn announced that it has raised $18 million through a Series B financing. The financing was led by new investor SR One and included participation from Series A investors Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, TPG Biotech, and Merck Serono Ventures. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati's Marty Waters and Dan Koeppen represented SR One, the independent corporate venture capital arm of GlaxoSmithKline, in connection with this matter.
