Section 1 – Registrant’s Business and Operations

Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On April 3, 2018, Miragen Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a seventh amendment (the “Amendment”) to that certain License and Collaboration Agreement (the “Servier Agreement”) between the Company and Les Laboratoires Servier and Institut de Recherches Servier (collectively, “Servier”).

Among other things, the Amendment updates the development plan for the Company’s product candidate, MRG-110, which is an inhibitor of microRNA-92 and is being developed under the Servier Agreement for the treatment of heart failure and other ischemic disease. The Amendment, among other things, (i) updates the development plan for MRG-110 and cost-sharing provisions associated therewith, (ii) provides for specified development cost reimbursement by Servier to the Company following a determination by a joint committee established by the parties under the Servier Agreement that the outcome of a specified portion of a Phase 1 clinical trial has met its primary end point, and (iii) provides for additional development plan cost reimbursement by Servier to the Company following a determination by a joint committee established by the parties under the Servier Agreement that a product candidate targeting microRNA-92 will proceed into a Phase 2 clinical trial.

The foregoing description of the Amendment is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment. The Company anticipates filing a copy of the Amendment with its periodic report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.
