Vesting of Conditional Share Awards

This notification sets out the vesting details of awards over Ordinary Shares and American Depositary Shares ('ADS') made in 2016 under the GlaxoSmithKline 2009 Performance Share Plan ('PSP'), which were subject to relevant business performance conditions.  The three-year performance period for the 2016 awards commenced on 1 January 2016 and ended on 31 December 2018. 

The Remuneration Committee decided to increase the Adjusted Free Cash Flow ('AFCF') target and associated vesting scale for the 2016 PSP award to reduce the level of outperformance attributable to the original timing assumption for the Loss of Advair Exclusivity.  The outcome in the table below under AFCF reflects the increased target.

The performance measure vesting details for those Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ('PDMRs') who received awards in 2016 are set out in the following table.

2017 and 2018 PSP awards

The Remuneration Committee reviewed the 2017 and 2018 PSP awards and agreed to adjust the AFCF target for the awards.  Details of the targets and performance against them will as usual be provided in the Company's Remuneration Report.
