A new consumer healthcare company

GSK’s Consumer Healthcare business is on track to become an independent company through a proposed demerger from GSK in mid-2022. The new business, to be named Haleon, is expected to be a world-leader in consumer healthcare, offering the prospect of attractive organic sales growth, operating margin expansion and consistent high cash generation.

Led by its purpose to deliver better everyday health with humanity, it will be strongly positioned to play a vital role in a growing sector that is more relevant than ever. Haleon will have a world-class portfolio of category-leading global brands, including Sensodyne, Voltaren, Panadol and Centrum, brands that are trusted by healthcare professionals, customers and people worldwide to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and their communities.
