- Company completes End-of-Phase 2 Meeting with FDA -

Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVNC), a biotechnology company
developing botulinum toxin products for use in aesthetic and therapeutic
indications, today announced the completion of its End-of-Phase 2
meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) along with
receipt of Scientific Advice from the Europe Medicines Agency (EMA)
regarding DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (RT002) for the treatment of
cervical dystonia, a movement disorder of the neck, in adults. Based on
the Phase 2 safety and efficacy results, along with guidance from the
FDA and EMA, Revance plans to proceed to a Phase 3 program in cervical
dystonia.

Revance's Phase 3 program will be conducted at multiple sites in the
U.S., Canada and Europe, and will be designed to fulfill regulatory
submission requirements in both the U.S. and Europe. Revance is
finalizing the trial protocols for the pivotal program, which is planned
to commence in the second quarter of 2018.

In May 2017, the company reported that in a Phase 2 trial, RT002
appeared to be generally safe and well-tolerated, delivered clinically
significant improvement in signs and symptoms of cervical dystonia in
patients, and demonstrated duration of effect of at least 24 weeks.
Earlier this month, the company announced that the FDA granted Orphan
Drug Designation for RT002 to treat cervical dystonia.

"Our discussions with the FDA and EMA were very fruitful, directing
specific courses of action for our clinical program for RT002 in
cervical dystonia," said Dan Browne, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Revance. "We are energized by the momentum behind our first
potential therapeutic indication and are excited by the prospect of
bringing this promising, long-acting therapy to those suffering from
this highly debilitating disease."

About Cervical Dystonia

According to the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, whose mission is
to advance research, promote awareness and education, and support the
needs of affected individuals, cervical dystonia is a painful condition
in which the neck muscles contract involuntarily, causing abnormal
movements and awkward posture of the head and neck. The movements may be
sustained (tonic), jerky (clonic), or a combination. Cervical dystonia
(also referred to as spasmodic torticollis) may be primary (meaning that
it is the only apparent neurological disorder, with or without a family
history) or may be brought about by secondary causes (such as physical
trauma). It can result in considerable pain and discomfort.

Treatments for cervical dystonia include oral medications, botulinum
toxin injections, surgery, and complementary therapies. Botulinum toxin
can help block the communication between the nerve and the muscle and
may alleviate abnormal movements and postures. Current botulinum toxin
treatments for cervical dystonia have a duration of effect of
approximately three months. Cervical dystonia can occur at any age,
although most individuals first experience symptoms in middle age. The
condition affects a few hundred thousand adults and children in the
United States alone. Revance estimates the global market for treating
muscle movement disorders with botulinum toxins, including cervical
dystonia, was nearly $1 billion in 2015.
