Innoviva Reports Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results
|·||Total net revenue decreased by 4.9% to $76.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to the same quarter in 2018.|
|·||Income before income taxes decreased by 3.9% to $70.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to the same quarter in 2018.|
BURLINGAME, Calif., February 5, 2020 – Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) (the Company) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2019.
|·||Gross royalty revenues of $79.4 million from Glaxo Group Limited (“GSK”) for the fourth quarter of 2019 included royalties of $53.1 million from global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA®, royalties of $11.9 million from global net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® and $14.4 million from global net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®.1|
|·||Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $2.3 million, compared with $2.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Stock-based compensation for the fourth quarter of 2019 and 2018 was $0.5 million.|
|·||Net cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and marketable securities totaled $350.8 million, and royalties receivable from GSK totaled $79.4 million, as of December 31, 2019.|
“Global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® decreased 18% versus the fourth quarter of 2018. U.S. net sales declined 42% as increased pricing discounts in the ICS/LABA sector offset volume growth. Non-U.S. sales increased 11% versus the fourth quarter of 2018, driven by market share gains in certain European markets and continued growth in Japan. Non-U.S. sales growth was negatively impacted by foreign currency translation; in constant exchange rates (CER), RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® non-US net sales grew 16%.”
“ANORO® ELLIPTA® global net sales declined 2% in the fourth quarter of 2019. U.S. net sales declined 7%, as increased amounts of sales through market segments with higher rebates and reduced channel inventories offset volume growth. Non-U.S. ANORO® ELLIPTA® net sales grew 9% year over year in the quarter. Non-U.S. sales growth was negatively impacted by foreign currency translation; in constant exchange rates (CER), ANORO® ELLIPTA® non-US net sales grew 13%.”
In addition, TRELEGY® ELLIPTA® global net sales were $221.4 million,” stated Geoffrey Hulme, Interim Principal Executive Officer.
Hulme continued, “Despite new generic entrants in the U.S. ICS/LABA class at the beginning of 2019, and the resulting negative impact on BREO® ELLIPTA®’s pricing, Innoviva’s full-year income from operations rose versus 2018, its cash resources increased meaningfully, and its debt levels continued to decline. The company enters 2020 in an advantageous financial and operating position.”
Hulme concluded, “Subsequent to the end of the fourth quarter, and as part of our ongoing efforts to maximize shareholder value, we were excited to announce our pending investment in Armata Pharmaceuticals, a leader in the emerging bacteriophage therapeutic area. The increasing global health risk posed by antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections has created a growing need for alternative, differentiated options. Innoviva’s pending investment will help Armata advance its bacteriophage platform into the clinic. This transaction is consistent with the commitment of the board and management to prudently and opportunistically deploy capital in order to create shareholder value.”
