Innoviva Reports First Quarter 2023 Financial Results and Highlights Recent Company Progress Received GSK royalties of $60.3 million, net product revenues of $11.5 million and license revenue of $8.0 million in the first quarter of 2023 Repurchased $40.3 million of common stock and paid off $96.2 million of 2023 convertible notes BURLINGAME, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) (“Innoviva” or “the Company”), a diversified holding company with a portfolio of royalties and other healthcare assets, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023, highlighted select corporate achievements and provided an overview of its key business initiatives. Gross royalty revenue from Glaxo Group Limited (GSK) for the first quarter 2023 was $60.3 million, which included royalties of $50.9 million from global net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® and royalties of $9.4 million from global net sales of ANORO® ELLIPTA®, compared to $93.5 million for the first quarter of 2022. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of our subsidiary, Theravance Respiratory Company, with its TRELEGY® royalty stream in July 2022. Net product sales and license revenue for the first quarter of 2023 was $19.5 million, which included $9.0 million from GIAPREZA® net sales, $2.5 million from XERAVA® net sales and an $8.0 million milestone payment from our partner for the approval of XERAVA® in mainland China. Net income was $34.9 million, or $0.51 basic per share, for the first quarter of 2023, compared to net income of $15.8 million, or $0.23 basic per share, for the first quarter of 2022. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $144.0 million. Royalty, product sales and milestone receivables totaled $75.8 million as of March 31, 2023. "The first quarter of 2023 was marked by strong revenues stemming from both our royalty portfolio and our internal product portfolio along with continued execution against key corporate objectives,” said Pavel Raifeld, Chief Executive Officer of Innoviva. “Also of note, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Antimicrobial Drugs Advisory Committee recently returned a unanimous vote in support of approval for sulbactam-durlobactam in adults with hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia. We believe this is a critical step toward bringing this much needed treatment to patients with these life-threatening infections caused by Acinetobacter Baumannii-calcoaceticus complex. We are disciplined with regard to managing costs and focused on realizing synergies from our operating platform. We remain excited about the prospects of our business and continue to pursue shareholder value accretive activities, such as share repurchases.” First Quarter 2023 and Recent Highlights GSK Net Sales First quarter 2023 net sales of RELVAR®/BREO® ELLIPTA® by GSK were $339.2 million with $122.4 million in net sales from the U.S. market and $216.8 million from non-U.S. markets.

OrphageniX is a drug development company aiming to develop therapeutics for genetic diseases using advancements in "Gene Editing" technologies. OrpageniX will focus on the low volume, high margin specialty pharmaceutical niche area of "Orphan Diseases" which are protected under the Orphan Drug Act (ODA). Per the company, the OrphageniX technology can be used for diagnostics and research tools. Gene Editing uses the cell's innate repair mechanisms to repair mutations that result in genetic diseases. According to OrphaageniX, it is similar to gene therapy but avoids the risks associated with a viral vector. It works like anti-sense and RNAi, but is more efficient and permanent within the repaired cell because it changes the gene itself and not the transient message. The company states that it has major collaborations with Yale Medical School, Albert Einstein Medical Center and the University of Washington.
