Glaxo announced "further significant steps" within its Pharmaceuticals business to realize value for shareholders and deliver improved operational performance.

This has been a highly innovative and successful venture with our equity partners Pfizer and Shionogi. The business has made very significant progress in both R&D and commercial execution, culminating in the recent successful launches of Tivicay and Triumeq.
