On February 22, 2019, Sandra Poole notified LogicBio Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) of her resignation from her position as the Company’s Chief Operating Officer, effective as of March 31, 2019.

Item 8.01 Other Events.
On December 19, 2018, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware issued a decision in Sciabacucchi v. Salzberg, C.A. No. 2017-0931-JTL (Del. Ch.), declaring that provisions in certificates of incorporation of Delaware companies that purport to require claims under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), be brought in federal court are ineffective and invalid under Delaware law. On January 17, 2019, the defendants in this action appealed the Court of Chancery’s decision to the Delaware Supreme Court.
Section 8 of the Amended and Restated Bylaws (“Bylaws”) of the Company provides that, unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the federal district courts of the United States shall be the exclusive forum for the resolution of any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act (the “Federal Forum Provision”). However, unless and until the Court of Chancery’s decision in Sciabacucchi is reversed by the Delaware Supreme Court on appeal or otherwise abrogated, the Company does not intend to enforce its Federal Forum Provision. In the event that the Delaware Supreme Court affirms the Court of Chancery’s Sciabacucchi decision or otherwise makes a determination that provisions such as the Federal Forum Provision are invalid, the Company’s Board of Directors intends to amend promptly the Company’s Bylaws to remove the Federal Forum Provision.
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.
