Glaxo announced "further significant steps" within its Pharmaceuticals business to realize value for shareholders and deliver improved operational performance. Glaxo stated: "Five years ago, we created ViiV Healthcare, a new standalone global business focused on development of treatments for HIV. 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. We believe now is the right time to explore the potential for an IPO of a minority shareholding in this business. This will provide greater visibility of the intrinsic value we see in its currently marketed assets and future pipeline and also enhance potential future strategic flexibility."
