Arrangements for Shareholder Webcast - Wednesday 6 May 2020
 
Further to the Company's announcement on 9 April 2020 that this year's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") will be run as a closed meeting due to the UK Government's restrictions on public gatherings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is pleased to announce that it will be holding a live webcast for shareholders following the AGM on Wednesday 6 May 2020.
 
Details of Shareholder Webcast
 
The webcast will take place following the AGM on Wednesday 6 May 2020. It will commence at 2.45pm (UK time) and finish at 3.45pm (UK time). Any changes to these times will be published on the Company's website at www.gsk.com/en-gb/investors/shareholder-information/annual-general-meeting/.
 
Shareholders wishing to join the webcast are strongly encouraged to join online. For those shareholders who are not able to join online, a telephone conference call facility will be available.
 
For details on how to register for the webcast online or to dial-in to the telephone conference call please go to www.gsk.com/en-gb/investors/shareholder-information/annual-general-meeting/. Shareholders who wish to join the webcast online are requested to register as soon as possible and ideally at least 24 hours before the start of the webcast.
 
Please note that the webcast is intended for shareholders only. Shareholders will therefore be asked to provide their details before accessing the event.
 
During the webcast, updates will be given by Sir Jonathan Symonds, GSK's Chairman, and Emma Walmsley, Chief Executive Officer.
 
Following these there will be an opportunity for shareholders to ask questions. Shareholders may also submit their questions in advance of the webcast by emailing  company.secretary@gsk.com.
 
The Board will endeavour to ensure that all questions are answered either during the webcast or by publishing them on the Company's website after the webcast.
