Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

On January 2, 2020, Urovant Sciences Ltd. (“we,” “our,” or “us”) terminated the Loan and Security Agreement, dated February 20, 2019 (the “Hercules Loan Agreement”), by and among us and two of our subsidiaries (Urovant Holdings Limited and Urovant Sciences GmbH), as co-borrowers, our remaining subsidiaries (Urovant Sciences, Inc., Urovant Treasury Holdings, Inc. and Urovant Sciences Treasury, Inc.), as guarantors, and Hercules Capital, Inc., as agent and lender (“Hercules”). The description of the material terms of the Hercules Loan Agreement set forth in Item 1.01 of our Current Report on Form 8-K we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 22, 2019 is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.02. Such description of the Hercules Loan Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Hercules Loan Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 10.23 to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019.

We terminated the Hercules Loan Agreement in connection with, and as a requirement under, the $300 million unsecured revolving debt financing agreement (the “Sumitomo Loan Agreement”) we entered into on December 27, 2019 with Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma Co., Ltd., as lender. On December 27, 2019, Hercules delivered a limited waiver of the mandatory prepayment provisions under the Hercules Loan Agreement to permit our entry into the Sumitomo Loan Agreement, so long as the obligations under the Hercules Loan Agreement were repaid by January 7, 2020. Our obligations under the Hercules Loan Agreement were repaid in full on January 2, 2020, using the financing we obtained pursuant to the Sumitomo Loan Agreement. Prepayment of the Hercules Loan Agreement prior to the first year anniversary of its execution required us to pay a prepayment charge equal to 2.0% of the amount prepaid. We were also obligated under the terms of the Hercules Loan Agreement to pay an end of term charge in an amount equal to 4.25% of the amount of the term loans actually advanced.

Other than in respect of the Hercules Loan Agreement, there is no direct material relationship between us or our affiliates and Hercules.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
