Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 18, 2019, Minerva Neurosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Commercial Supply Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Catalent Germany Schorndorf GmbH (“Catalent”).

Under the Agreement, Catalent will manufacture and supply to the Company commercial quantities of roluperidone tablets (also known as MIN-101) in finished package form once the Company receives its first marketing approval for the drug. The Agreement has a term of five years following such approval, and commits the Company to purchase at least one million, five hundred thousand Euros (€1,500,000) worth of product during each of those five years. The term is automatically extended for successive 1-year periods unless a party provides at least 12 months’ prior written notice to the other party. The Company must supply active pharmaceutical ingredient for the product to Catalent at no cost.

The Agreement may be terminated by either party (i) if the other party commits an uncured material breach of the Agreement, (ii) if regulatory approval necessary for Catalent to begin manufacturing roluperidone tablets has not been obtained by the Company within a year after the effective date of the Agreement, or (iii) upon 12 months’ prior written notice to the other party if regulatory approval for the product has been withdrawn, or the Company has ceased commercialization of the product.

The Agreement is otherwise subject to such terms and conditions as are reasonable and customary for commercial supply agreements of similar type.

The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Agreement, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.
