Exhibit 99.1




Innoviva Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results


·Royalties increased by 8% to $89.0 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to the same quarter in 2020.


·Invested an additional $20.0 million into Armata Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NYSE: ARMP), an anti-infectives leader, in the first quarter of 2021.


·Deborah L. Birx, M.D., appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors.


BURLINGAME, Calif., April 28, 2021 Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) (“Innoviva” and “the Company”) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.


·Gross royalty revenues of $89.0 million from Glaxo Group Limited (“GSK”) for the first quarter of 2021 included royalties of $56.4 million from global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA®, royalties of $10.5 million from global net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® and royalties of $22.1 million from global net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®.1


·Increase in fair values of equity and long term investments of $55.0 million in the first quarter of 2021 was mainly due to higher net valuation of our various investments, including common stock and warrants, as of March 31, 2021.  


·Income before income taxes increased by 36% to $129.4 million, compared to the same quarter in 2020.


·Net cash and cash equivalents, excluding $3.3 million cash balance attributable to a variable interest entity, totaled $279.6 million, and receivables from GSK totaled $89.0 million as of March 31, 2021.


Pavel Raifeld, Chief Executive Officer of Innoviva, Inc., stated: “Our royalty revenues grew 8% year over year, meaningfully positively impacted by non-recurring items in the quarter, including prior-period adjustments and favorable foreign exchange rates.”


“RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® global net sales increased modestly compared to the first quarter of 2020. U.S. net sales increased by 5% as a decline in volume was more than offset by a favorable prior-period adjustment. Non-U.S. sales decreased by 2% as the ICS/LABA class growth declined and the positive prior-year stockpiling impact was not repeated. ANORO® ELLIPTA® global net sales increased by 7% in the first quarter of 2021. U.S. net sales increased by 8% due to a favorable prior-period adjustment and beneficial pricing trends, offsetting negative volume dynamics. Non-U.S. ANORO® ELLIPTA® net sales increased by 5%, supported by a positive currency impact. TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®  global net sales increased by 37% in the first quarter of 2021, driven by strong volume growth and a favorable prior-period adjustment in the U.S. as well as ongoing launches in non-U.S. markets.”




Mr. Raifeld continued, “We are pleased with our portfolio’s performance this quarter in the face of intensifying competition from generic and novel therapies, especially in the ICS/LABA class, and uncertainty related to the ongoing pandemic.”


Mr. Raifeld concluded, “Over the past quarter we continued to strategically deploy capital in promising healthcare companies, successfully resolved our arbitration with Theravance BioPharma and strengthened our Board, positioning Innoviva for further value creation.”


Recent Highlights


·GSK Net Sales:


First quarter 2021 net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $375.9 million, up slightly from $374.3 million in the same quarter of 2020, with $154.6 million in net sales from the U.S. market and $221.3 million from non-U.S. markets.


First quarter 2021 net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $161.5 million, up 7% from $151.6 million in the same quarter of 2020, with $88.4 million net sales from the U.S. market and $73.1 million from non-U.S. markets.


First quarter 2021 net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $339.8 million, up 37% from $248.2 million in the same quarter of 2020, with $237.5 million in net sales from the U.S. market and $102.3 million in net sales from non-U.S. markets.


·Capital Allocation:


During the first quarter of 2021, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Innoviva Strategic Opportunities LLC, invested $20.0 million to acquire 6.2 million shares of Armata common stock and an equal number of warrants exercisable at $3.25 per share, which resulted in Innoviva collectively owning approximately 60% of Armata’s outstanding stock (without giving effect to our warrants).


·New Director:


On March 9, 2021, the Company appointed Deborah L. Birx, M.D., to its Board of Directors, where she serves as an independent director. Dr. Birx is a world renowned medical expert and leader who most recently served as the response coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Dr. Birx’s career highlights also include having served as Ambassador-at-Large, when she assumed the role of the Coordinator of the United States Government Activities to Combat HIV/AIDS and U.S. Special Representative for Global Health Diplomacy. Dr. Birx also served as the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator where she oversaw the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and as the Director of the U.S. Military HIV Research Program (USMHRP) at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research.
