Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 18, 2015, LogicBio Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a license agreement with The Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University (“Stanford”) (such agreement, as amended and restated on January 31, 2018 and further amended on May 3, 2018, the “Stanford License Agreement”). On June 24, 2019, the Company and Stanford agreed to amend the Stanford License Agreement (the “Stanford Amendment”).

Pursuant to the Stanford License Agreement, the Company has an exclusive, worldwide license to make, have made, use, import, offer to sell and sell products covered by certain patent rights to the GeneRide technology owned by Stanford within certain fields of use. The exclusive license grant is limited to the following fields: (a) human therapeutics to treat methylmalonic acidemia, propionic acidemia, HIV, influenza, malaria, Crigler-Najjar syndrome, Tyrosinemia Type I, Wilson’s disease, hemophilia B, Glycogen Storage Disease 1 and Glycogen Storage Disease 3, and (b) the prevention, treatment or diagnosis via genome editing without a nuclease of certain additional indications with respect to liver tissue and certain other tissues to be nominated by the Company, subject to the terms of the agreement. The Stanford Amendment extends the timeline within which the Company is required to nominate such other tissues, and clarifies that the exclusive license grant applies to the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of all human disease, including hemophilia A and alpha-1 antitrypsin disease, via genome editing without a nuclease prior to the deadline for nomination of such other tissues.

Additionally, pursuant to the Stanford License Agreement, the Company has a non-exclusive license under Stanford’s rights in certain know-how, including certain vectors provided by Stanford to the Company under the Stanford License Agreement. The Stanford Amendment expands the scope of this non-exclusive license to include certain additional vectors to be provided by Stanford to the Company.

Further, the Stanford Amendment extends certain diligence milestones under the Stanford License Agreement.

The Company will pay a one-time, non-refundable upfront fee of $20,000 under the Stanford Amendment.

The foregoing description of the Stanford Amendment is only a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the full and complete terms contained in the Stanford Amendment, which the Company intends to file as an exhibit to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2019.
