  Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Amendment to Equity Distribution Agreement


On March 4, 2020, Millendo Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) amended and restated the Equity Distribution Agreement dated April 5, 2019 between the Company and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. to include SVB Leerink LLC as an additional sales agent for the Company’s “at the market offering” program (the “A&R Equity Distribution Agreement”).


The A&R Equity Distribution Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this report and the foregoing description of the A&R Equity Distribution Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.


Item 8.01Other Events.


The Company preliminarily estimates that its cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash balance was $63.5 million as of December 31, 2019. This amount is unaudited and preliminary, and does not present all information necessary for an understanding of the Company’s financial condition as of December 31, 2019. The review of the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019 is ongoing and could result in changes to this preliminary estimate. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on this preliminary estimate.


The Company also hereby amends its disclosure of the background of Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) as follows:


PWS is a rare endocrine disease caused by a spontaneous genetic error that results in lack of expression of several genes on chromosome 15 and is usually characterized by hyperphagia, intellectual disability, short stature and incomplete sexual development. Recognized as the most common genetic cause of life-threatening childhood obesity, PWS occurs in approximately one in 15,000 births, with an estimated prevalence of 8,000 to 11,000 patients in the United States and 13,000 to 18,000 patients in Europe. Hyperphagia is one of the most serious symptoms of the disease and where we believe there is a significant unmet medical need. Hyperphagia begins at an average of eight years old and continues through adulthood. There are approximately 7,000 diagnosed PWS patients with hyperphagia in the United States.
