Annual General Meeting

Please select...

GlaxoSmithKline plc (‘GSK’) holds an Annual General Meeting in London each year during May. All the directors able to attend are available formally during the meeting, and informally beforehand, for questions.

Voting on all resolutions put to the Annual General Meeting is done by way of a poll rather than by a show of hands.

2020 Annual General Meeting and Shareholder Webcast

The twentieth Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) of GSK was held on Wednesday 6 May 2020 at 2.30pm at 980 Great West Road, Brentford, Middlesex TW8 9GS (GSK’s registered office).

In light of the stay at home measures imposed by the UK Government on 23 March 2020 which prohibit, amongst other things, public gatherings of more than two people, the AGM was held as a closed meeting attended by two shareholders facilitated by GSK. No other shareholders were permitted to attend the meeting.

At the AGM, all resolutions set out in the Notice of AGM 2020 dated 23 March 2020 were passed and the voting results can be downloaded here.

Following the AGM, a live webcast was held for shareholders. Shareholders were able to join the webcast either online or by telephone conference call. During the webcast, updates were given by Sir Jonathan Symonds, GSK’s Chairman, and Emma Walmsley, Chief Executive Officer.

Following the updates, shareholders were given the opportunity to submit questions. Answers were given to a broad range of questions, including a number of questions submitted to GSK in advance of the webcast. Please click the link below to see GSK’s responses to questions submitted.
