Innoviva Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

  • Total net revenue rose 14.6% to $67.1 million compared with the second quarter of 2017.
  • Net income attributable to Innoviva stockholders increased 55.4% from the second quarter of 2017 to $54.6 million, or $0.49 per diluted share.
  • The Company intends to prepay $110 million of its Term B Loan.

BRISBANE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 26, 2018-- Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) (the Company) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

  • Gross royalty revenues from Glaxo Group Limited (GSK) for the second quarter of 2018 included royalties of $57.5 million from global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA®, royalties of $10.7 million from global net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® and $2.4 million from global net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®.1
  • Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $4.4 million compared with $10.7 million in the second quarter of 2017 (which included $4.3 million in proxy contest and related legal costs). Total non-cash operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 included $1.5 million in stock-based compensation compared to $2.4 million in stock-based compensation for the second quarter of 2017.
  • Net income attributable to Innoviva stockholders in the second quarter of 2018 was $54.6 million (or $0.49 per diluted share), up 55.4% from the second quarter of 2017.
  • Net cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and marketable securities totaled $107.5 million, and royalties receivable from GSK totaled $70.5 million as of June 30, 2018.

Geoffrey Hulme, interim Principal Executive Officer, stated: “RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® and ANORO® ELLIPTA® continued to achieve record TRx market share in the U.S., reaching 21.3% and 18.3% at the end of the second quarter of 2018, respectively, despite second quarter U.S. net sales being unfavorably impacted by payer rebate adjustments related to prior periods. In addition, REVLAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® and ANORO® ELLIPTA® continued their strong product sales growth in non-US markets. Meanwhile, this quarter we continued to streamline operations and reduce operating costs. The Company’s newly elected board of directors and the management team remain focused on pursuing opportunities to maximize shareholder value.”

“Innoviva’s royalty-based financial model produced another quarter of strong cash flow generation. We believe a significant reduction in the balance of our Term B loan, which should meaningfully lower future interest expense, is the best use of our cash at this time.”
