Item 5.02.Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensation Arrangements of Certain Officers.


On June 17, 2020, the Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Millendo Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) approved amendments to the Millendo Therapeutics, Inc. (formerly OvaScience, Inc.) 2012 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2012 Plan Amendment”) and the Millendo Therapeutics, Inc. 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2019 Plan Amendment”, and together with the 2012 Plan Amendment, the “Plan Amendments”). The Plan Amendments, effective June 17, 2020, amend the Company’s 2012 Stock Incentive Plan and 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (together, as amended, the “Plans”). The Plans are designed to promote the interests of the Company and its stockholders by enabling the Company to offer an opportunity to employees and consultants to receive grants of equity-based and cash-based incentive awards, so as to better attract, retain, and reward them, to align their interests with those of stockholders, and to provide them with an incentive for outstanding performance to generate superior returns to the Company’s stockholders. The Plan Amendments require the acceleration of all outstanding unvested stock awards prior to the consummation of a change in control of the Company, if such stock awards are not assumed by the surviving corporation or acquiring corporation (or its parent company) or substituted with similar awards for such outstanding stock awards. The Plan Amendments affect the terms applicable to awards granted under, or otherwise subject to the terms of, the Plans, enabling the Company to continue to use the Plans as critical tools to attract, motivate, reward, and retain key employees.


The foregoing summary description of the Plan Amendments are qualified in their entirety by reference to the actual terms of the Plan Amendments, copies of which are attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, and are incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
