Unless the context indicates otherwise, as used in this prospectus, the terms “Revance,” “the Company,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Revance Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and, where appropriate, our consolidated subsidiary.

Revance Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage specialty biopharmaceutical company focused on the development, manufacturing and commercialization of novel botulinum toxin products for multiple aesthetic and therapeutic indications. We are leveraging our proprietary portfolio of botulinum toxin type A compounds, combined with our patented TransMTS® peptide delivery system, to address unmet needs in large and growing neurotoxin markets. Our proprietary TransMTS technology enables delivery of botulinum toxin type A through two investigational drug product candidates, RT001 (RTT150 (Botulinum Toxin Type A) Topical Gel) and RT002 (RTT150 (Botulinum Toxin Type A) for Injection). We are pursuing clinical development for RT001 and RT002 in a broad spectrum of aesthetic and therapeutic indications. We hold worldwide rights for all indications of RT001, RT002 and our TransMTS technology platform.

RT001 has the potential to be the first commercially available non-injectable dose form of botulinum toxin type A. We are studying topical RT001 for aesthetic indications, such as crow's feet (wrinkles around the eyes, also known as lateral canthal lines) and therapeutic indications such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). RT002 is a novel, injectable formulation of botulinum toxin type A designed to be more targeted and longer lasting than currently available injectable botulinum toxin products. We are studying injectable RT002 for aesthetic indications, such as glabellar (frown) lines and therapeutic uses, such as muscle movement disorders including cervical dystonia. Both products have the potential to expand into additional aesthetic and therapeutic indications in the future.

We have retained all rights to develop and commercialize RT001 and RT002 worldwide. We have not filed for approval with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, for the commercialization of RT001 or RT002 and we have not generated any revenue from product sales for RT001 or RT002.

We were incorporated in Delaware in August 1999 under the name Essentia Biosystems, Inc. We commenced operations in June 2002 and, in April 2005, changed our name to Revance Therapeutics, Inc. Our principal executive offices are located at 7555 Gateway Boulevard, Newark, California 94560, and our telephone number is (510) 742-3400. Our website address is www.revance.com. The information contained in, or that can be accessed through, our website is not part of this prospectus.

We are an “emerging growth company,” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012. As an emerging growth company we are eligible for exemptions from various reporting requirements applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies, including not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation. We will remain an emerging growth company until the earlier of (1) the last day of the fiscal year (a) following the fifth anniversary of the closing of our initial public offering in February 2014, (b) in which we have total annual gross revenue of at least $1.0 billion or (c) in which we are deemed to be a large accelerated filer, which means the market value of our common stock that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the prior June 30th, or (2) the date on which we have issued more than $1.0 billion in non-convertible debt during the prior three-year period. We refer to the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 herein as the “JOBS Act,” and references herein to “emerging growth company” shall have the meaning associated with it in the JOBS Act.

The selling stockholders named in this prospectus may offer and sell up to 8,414,711 shares of our common stock that they currently hold.

See the section titled “Relationships with the Selling Stockholders” for additional information. We will not receive any of the proceeds of sales by the selling stockholders of any of the common stock covered by this prospectus.

Throughout this prospectus, when we refer to the shares of our common stock being registered on behalf of the selling stockholders, we are referring solely to the 8,414,711 shares currently held by the selling stockholders named in this prospectus.

Investing in our securities involves a high degree of risk. Before deciding whether to invest in our common stock, you should consider carefully the risks and uncertainties discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” contained in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 filed with the SEC on August 7, 2015 and incorporated by reference in this prospectus, as the same may be amended, supplemented or superseded by the risks and uncertainties described under similar headings in the other documents that are filed after the date hereof and incorporated by reference into this prospectus. Each of the risk factors could adversely affect our business, operating results and financial condition, as well as adversely affect the value of an investment in our securities, and the occurrence of any of these risks might cause you to lose all or part of your investment. Additional risks not presently known to us or that we currently believe are immaterial may also significantly impair our business operations.
