ReVance Therapeutics, Inc. Announces $45 Million Financing


6/10/2011 6:34:57 AM

NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (“Revance”) today announced the closing of a $45 million financing led by Essex Woodlands Health Ventures and new investor, NovaQuest Capital (NovaQuest). New investor, CNF Investments, also joined the syndicate which included participation from existing investors: Vivo Ventures, Technology Partners, Shepherd Ventures, Palo Alto Investors, Pac-Link Ventures and Essex Capital Corporation.

Concurrent with the financing, Jonathan Tunnicliffe, Partner at NovaQuest will join the Revance Board of Directors. “The market for botulinum toxin neuromodulators is already very large and growing and we believe that the Revance technologies for the first topically applied dose form and next generation injectable product are highly differentiated from current offerings and will expand the market further.” Mr. Tunnicliffe continued, “We look forward to being a part of the Revance team as they continue further late-stage development to bring these novel compounds to market.”

“We are pleased that NovaQuest is joining Essex Woodlands and our existing syndicate,” said Dan Browne, President and CEO of Revance. “Their combined expertise will be an invaluable asset as Revance develops its topical and injectable neuromodulation pipeline in both aesthetic and therapeutic categories.”

About Revance

Revance Therapeutics, Inc. is a privately held specialty biopharmaceutical company that has developed the proprietary TransMTS™ platform technology which enables local, targeted delivery of large macromolecules across skin. The lead investigational product, RT001 Botulinum Toxin Type A Topical Gel, has demonstrated safety and statistically significant efficacy in Phase 2 clinical trials.

Revance is also developing a next generation injectable botulinum toxin type A product (RT002) integrating the TransMTS technology with the neurotoxin to improve onset of action, increase duration of effect, and limit diffusion away from treatment site. The company manufactures and has exclusive, worldwide rights to a family of purified, well characterized botulinum toxin molecules that could potentially be used across a range of therapeutic indications including migraine, rhinitis and other disease states for which botulinum toxin is an appropriate treatment.
