Innoviva Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Royalties increased by 5% to $93.5 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to the same quarter in 2021.
  • Issued $261.0 million convertible senior notes due 2028 and repurchased a portion of the convertible subordinated notes due 2023.
  • Invested $45.0 million into Armata Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NYSE: ARMP) (“Armata”), an anti-infectives leader.
  • Made a non-binding offer to acquire and provided $15.0 million convertible debt financing to Entasis Therapeutics Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: ETTX) (“Entasis”), an anti-infectives leader.

BURLINGAME, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) (“Innoviva” and “the Company”) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

  • Gross royalty revenues of $93.5 million from Glaxo Group Limited (“GSK”) for the first quarter of 2022 included royalties of $55.8 million from global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA®, royalties of $8.4 million from global net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® and royalties of $29.3 million from global net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®.1
  • Income from operations decreased by 2% to $77.7 million, compared to the same quarter in 2021, primarily due to the accounting consolidation of Entasis’ financials, including operating expenses, starting on February 17, 2022.
  • Decrease in fair values of equity and long-term investments of $9.4 million in the first quarter of 2022 was mainly due to the volatility in the capital markets.
  • Net cash and cash equivalents totaled $183.3 million, excluding $33.5 million of Entasis’ cash balance, and receivables from GSK totaled $93.5 million as of March 31, 2022.

Pavel Raifeld, Chief Executive Officer of Innoviva, Inc., stated: “Our royalty revenues in the first quarter grew 5% year over year, displaying strong positive momentum in a volatile, pandemic-influenced environment.”

“RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® global net sales decreased slightly compared to first quarter 2021 with 4% U.S. net sales growth compensating for a slowdown in non-U.S. markets. U.S. sales were supported by favorable prior period adjustments. ANORO® ELLIPTA® global net sales decreased by 20% compared to first quarter of 2021 mainly due to pandemic driven LABA/LAMA class weakness and idiosyncratic pricing pressures in the U.S. market. Non-U.S. ANORO® ELLIPTA® net sales grew 3%, driven by increased patient dynamism in key EU markets. TRELEGY® ELLIPTA® global net sales increased 33% compared to first quarter 2021, driven primarily by strong U.S. growth for the triple therapy class. Non-US TRELEGY® ELLIPTA® net sales grew 31% supported by robust class performance and continued traction in new markets.”

Mr. Raifeld concluded, “Our diversified core royalty business has performed well, despite the lingering impact of the pandemic. We continued to optimize our capital structure, raising over $250 million in 2028 convertible notes last quarter and repurchasing a significant portion of our outstanding 2023 convertible notes. We remain excited about the progress of, and continue to commit capital to, our strategic investments. While this quarter’s accounting consolidation of Entasis and debt refinancing have reduced our reported income, we view underlying activities giving rise to such accounting impacts as significant positives. Market volatility can meaningfully affect our reported earnings, and we are pleased with the resilience displayed by our key assets despite the market-wide downturn over the past quarter. In fact, it has created many new opportunities for accretive capital deployment, and we believe that our strong operating cash flow generation and disciplined, agile business development approach position us well to take advantage of the current environment and drive long-term value creation.”

Recent Highlights

  • GSK Net Sales:

    • First quarter 2022 net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $371.8 million, down 1% from $375.9 million in the same quarter of 2021, with $160.4 million in net sales from the U.S. market and $211.4 million from non-U.S. markets.
    • First quarter 2022 net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $129.9 million, down 20% from $161.5 million in the same quarter of 2021, with $54.5 million net sales from the U.S. market and $75.4 million from non-U.S. markets.
    • First quarter 2022 net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $450.9 million, up 33% from $339.8 million in the same quarter of 2021, with $317.4 million in net sales from the U.S. market and $133.5 million in net sales from non-U.S. markets.
  • Capital Allocation:

    • During the first quarter of 2022, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Innoviva Strategic Opportunities LLC, invested $45.0 million to acquire 9.0 million shares of Armata common stock and warrants to purchase 4.5 million additional shares of common stock exercisable at $5.00 per share, which resulted in Innoviva collectively owning approximately 69% of Armata’s outstanding stock without giving effect to our warrants.
    • During the first quarter of 2022, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Innoviva Strategic Opportunities LLC, purchased a $15.0 million note from Entasis that is convertible, subject to certain conditions, into Entasis’ common shares at $1.48 per share and an equal number of warrants with $1.48 per share strike price. The Company also made a non-binding offer to acquire all outstanding equity securities of Entasis that it does not own at $2.00 per share.
    • During the first quarter of 2022, the Company issued 2.125% convertible notes due 2028 with principal value of $261.0 million and used a portion of the proceeds to repurchase $144.8 million (or approximately 60% of outstanding) notes due 2023, resulting in $20.7 million accounting loss on debt extinguishment.

In conjunction with the $15.0 million investment into Entasis on February 17, 2022, the Company determined that it became the primary beneficiary of Entasis in accordance with U.S. GAAP and started to consolidate Entasis financials into the Company financials. The change in accounting treatment does not materially affect Innoviva’s underlying financials or business operations.

1 For TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®, the amount represents 100% of royalty payments made by GSK to Theravance Respiratory Company, LLC (“TRC”). Innoviva owns 15% of the economic interest in TRC.
