About Revance Therapeutics, Inc.

Revance Therapeutics is a biotechnology company focused on developing
transformative neuromodulators to address a broad spectrum of aesthetic
and therapeutic conditions. Revance's lead product candidate,
DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection (DAXI), utilizes a unique proprietary
peptide excipient technology combined with highly purified botulinum
toxin type A to produce a novel, long-acting neuromodulator. In
aesthetics, Revance successfully completed its Phase 3 program for DAXI
in glabellar (frown) lines and is currently pursuing U.S. regulatory
approval in 2020, while also running two separate Phase 2 studies in
forehead lines and lateral canthal lines (crow's feet). In therapeutics,
DAXI is being studied in three indications, including a Phase 3 trial in
cervical dystonia, a Phase 2 trial in adult upper limb spasticity, and a
Phase 2 trial in plantar fasciitis, with plans to also study migraine.
Beyond DAXI, Revance also has begun development of a biosimilar to
BOTOX®, which would compete in the existing short-acting neuromodulator
marketplace. More information on Revance may be found at www.revance.com.
