Revance Therapeutics, Inc., a Calif.-based commercial-stage biotechnology company focused on innovative aesthetic and therapeutic offerings, announces the closing of a $300 million note purchase agreement with funds managed by Athyrium Capital Management, LP, a healthcare-focused investment firm.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Athyrium on a non-dilutive financing that substantially strengthens our financial position ahead of the potential FDA approval of our lead drug product, DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for glabellar lines,” says Tobin Schilke, chief financial officer of Revance. “With an FDA approval, the facility can extend our cash runway into 2024, positioning us to execute on our strategic priorities for growth.”
“Revance is set to become a formidable player in the thriving aesthetics market with their innovative product and services portfolio, differentiated commercial strategy and proven ability to execute,” adds Mark Kavulich, partner at Athyrium. “We look forward to a long-term partnership with Revance to further their growth, particularly as they seek FDA approval for their highly anticipated neuromodulator, which is expected to create a new category in long-acting aesthetic neuromodulators.”
