ITEM 1.01.
On March 14, 2017, Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Technology Transfer, Validation and Commercial Fill/Finish Services Agreement (the “Services Agreement”) with Ajinomoto Althea, Inc., a contract development and manufacturing organization (“Althea”).
Under the Services Agreement, Althea has agreed, among other things, to provide the Company with a future source of commercial fill/finish services for the Company’s neuromodulator products. The Services Agreement provides the Company expanded capacity and a second source of drug product manufacturing to support a global launch of DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002). The Services Agreement also mitigates supply chain risk by giving the Company a different manufacturing location than its current site and reduces future capital and operating expenditures required in the Company’s primary manufacturing facility by outsourcing to an experienced partner.
The Services Agreement has an initial term that will expire in seven years, unless sooner terminated by either party in accordance with the terms of the Services Agreement. The term of the Services Agreement may be extended by mutual agreement of the parties.  Concurrent with the execution of the Services Agreement, the parties also entered into a Statement of Work, which was made part of the Services Agreement and sets forth the particulars of production, components to be supplied and services to be performed under the Services Agreement, including deliverables and pricing information, timelines, milestones, payment schedules, technology transfer plans, and validation protocols, in each case, in support of the Company’s neuromodulator products.
The Services Agreement also contains provisions relating to compliance with current manufacturing practices and applicable laws and regulations, and to intellectual property, indemnification, confidentiality, representations and warranties, dispute resolution and other customary matters for an agreement of this kind.
The foregoing is only a summary description of the material terms of the Services Agreement, does not purport to be a complete description of the terms of the Services Agreement and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Services Agreement. The Company expects to file the Services Agreement as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 31, 2017. Certain terms of the Services Agreement have been omitted from this Form 8-K and will be omitted from the version of the Services Agreement to be filed as an exhibit to the Form 10-Q pursuant to a Confidential Treatment Request that the Company plans to submit to the Securities and Exchange Commission at the time of the filing of the Form 10-Q.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
