  • Royalties increased by 7% to $111.7 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to the same quarter in 2021

  • Completed acquisition of the remaining approximately 40% of Entasis Therapeutics at a price of $2.20 per share for a consideration of $42 million in July 2022

  • Entered into definitive merger agreement to acquire all outstanding shares of La Jolla Pharmaceutical Company for $6.23 per share in cash at an implied enterprise value of $149 million in July 2022

  • Sold 15% economic stake in Theravance Respiratory Company ("TRC") to Royalty Pharma for approximately $282 million and a potential $50 million milestone payment plus full ownership of existing equity investments TRC previously owned in July 2022

BURLINGAME, Calif., July 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) ("Innoviva" and "the Company"), a diversified holding company with a portfolio of royalties and a growing portfolio of healthcare assets in infectious disease and other areas of high unmet need, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

  • Gross royalty revenues of $111.7 million from Glaxo Group Limited ("GSK") for the second quarter of 2022 included royalties of $59.3 million from global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® and royalties of $9.6 million from global net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA®.

  • Income from operations decreased by 14% to $82.6 million, compared to the same quarter in 2021, primarily due to the accounting consolidation of Entasis’ financials, including its $20.0 million operating expenses.

  • Decrease in fair values of equity and long-term investments of $58.6 million in the second quarter of 2022 was mainly due to the volatility in the capital markets.

  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $177.1 million in the first 6 months of 2022, compared to $168.7 million in the same period of 2021.

  • Net cash and cash equivalents totaled $283.6 million, including $22.4 million of Entasis’ cash balance, and receivables from GSK totaled $111.7 million as of June 30, 2022.

Pavel Raifeld, Chief Executive Officer of Innoviva, Inc. stated: "This has been an exciting, transformative time for Innoviva as our core royalty business continued to deliver strong revenues, and we meaningfully advanced our strategy via key strategic and opportunistic transactions."

Mr. Raifeld continued: "We are thrilled to complete the acquisition of Entasis with its strong pipeline anchored by differentiated, promising lead asset SUL-DUR. Our announced acquisition of La Jolla gives us a highly complementary, profitable commercial platform, creating a fully integrated business in the hospital and infectious disease spaces, diversifying our operations, and meaningfully enhancing long-term growth prospects. We view the recent divestiture of our stake in Theravance Respiratory Company as a very economically and strategically compelling transaction providing us with significant optionality. As a well-capitalized, highly cashflow generative company, we are strongly positioned for sustained value creation in the current market environment."

Recent Highlights

  • GSK Net Sales:

    • Second quarter 2022 net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $395.5 million, down 10% from $439.5 million in the same quarter of 2021, with $189.7 million in net sales from the U.S. market and $205.8 million from non-U.S. markets.

    • Second quarter 2022 net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $148.2 million, down 19% from $184.0 million in the same quarter of 2021, with $74.5 million net sales from the U.S. market and $73.7 million from non-U.S. markets.

    • Second quarter 2022 net sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $590.1 million, up 45% from $405.9 million in the same quarter of 2021, with $449.1 million in net sales from the U.S. market and $141.0 million in net sales from non-U.S. markets.

  • Second Quarter and Recent Corporate Updates:

    • During the second quarter of 2022, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Innoviva Strategic Opportunities LLC, announced the purchase of all the issued and outstanding equity securities of Entasis Therapeutics not already owned by Innoviva and its affiliates for $2.20 per share for a consideration of $42.4 million. The purchase closed on July 11, 2022.

    • Subsequent to the close of the second quarter of 2022, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Innoviva Strategic Opportunities LLC, entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire La Jolla Pharmaceutical Company (Nasdaq: LJPC). Innoviva has agreed to pay $5.95 per share and an incremental $0.28 per share for additional cash proceeds received in connection with the divestiture of a non-core asset. The implied enterprise value of La Jolla was approximately $149 million. The acquisition is expected to close later in the third quarter of 2022.

    • In July, the Company sold its 15% stake in Theravance Respiratory Company ("TRC"), which received royalties stemming from sales of TRELEGY® ELLIPTA®, to Royalty Pharma plc (Nasdaq: RPRX) for an upfront cash payment of approximately $282 million and a potential $50 million contingent sales-based milestone payment. Under the terms of the agreement, TRC also transferred to Innoviva all of TRC’s ownership interests and investments in InCarda Therapeutics Inc., ImaginAb, Inc., Gate Neurosciences, Inc. and Nanolive SA; collectively, these ownership interests are valued at $42.5 million as of quarter-end. Innoviva retained its royalty rights with respect to ANORO® ELLIPTA® and RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA®.
