Innoviva Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

  • Royalties increased by 44% to $104.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to the same quarter in 2020.
  • Repurchased GSK’s full 32% equity stake in Innoviva for $392 million purchase price.
  • Strategically invested an additional $20 million into Entasis Therapeutics Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:ETTX), a leader in anti-infectives development.

BURLINGAME, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 28, 2021-- Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) (“Innoviva” and “the Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

  • Gross royalty revenues of $104.3 million from Glaxo Group Limited (“GSK”) for the second quarter of 2021 included royalties of $65.9 million from global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA®, royalties of $12.0 million from global net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® and royalties of $26.4 million from global net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®.1
  • Increase in fair values of strategic equity and long-term investments of $45.3 million in the second quarter of 2021 was mainly due to higher net valuation, as of June 30, 2021.
  • Income before income taxes increased by 15% to $136.2 million, compared to the same quarter in 2020.
  • Net cash and cash equivalents, excluding $3.2 million cash balance attributable to a variable interest entity, totaled $40.1 million, and receivables from GSK totaled $104.3 million as of June 30, 2021.

Pavel Raifeld, Chief Executive Officer of Innoviva, Inc., stated, “Our royalty revenues grew 44% year over year, demonstrating continued strength and resilience in the face of the pandemic.”

“RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® global net sales increased meaningfully compared to the second quarter of 2020. U.S. net sales increased significantly, driven in part by a favorable adjustment. Non-U.S. sales increased by 13% as the ICS/LABA class growth decline was more than offset by beneficial adherence trends among existing patients. ANORO® ELLIPTA® global net sales increased by 7% in the second quarter of 2021. U.S. net sales decreased by 3% due to negative volume dynamics. Non-U.S. ANORO® ELLIPTA® net sales increased by 25% as the environment normalized. TRELEGY® ELLIPTA® global net sales increased by 69% in the second quarter of 2021, driven by strong volume growth and a favorable adjustment in the U.S. as well as strong launches in non-U.S. markets.”

Mr. Raifeld concluded, “Over the past quarter, we continued to execute on our strategy of creating shareholder value through operational excellence and strategic investments, deploying in excess of $400 million. We are pleased with the superior performance across all key aspects of our business, and we believe GSK equity stake repurchase to be a strategically and economically attractive transaction that ushered a new chapter in our story and strongly positioned us for continued success.”
