Vesting of Performance Share Plan Awards

This notification sets out the vesting details of awards over Ordinary Shares and American Depositary Shares ('ADSs') made to Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ('PDMRs') and their Persons Closely Associated ('PCAs') in 2017 under the GlaxoSmithKline 2017 Performance Share Plan ('PSP'), which were subject to relevant business performance conditions.  Awards were made in 2017 following the approval of the 2017 Remuneration Policy and the 2017 PSP rules by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting in May 2017. The three-year performance period for the 2017 awards commenced on 1 January 2017 and ended on 31 December 2019. 

The Remuneration Committee determined that the normal three-year vesting period for the award made to the Chief Executive Officer should end in July 2020 on the third anniversary of the award, and thereafter the additional two-year vesting period applicable to Executive Directors would apply to her award.  For all other Corporate Executive Team members and PSP participants who received the 2017 awards, the awards vested on 17 February 2020 (for awards over Ordinary Shares) and 18 February 2020 (for awards over ADSs), following the determination of performance and to meet tax compliance requirements in some markets. 

The performance measure vesting details for those PDMRs who received awards in 2017 are set out in the following table.
