2024 Performance Share Plan Award and 2024 Performance Measures

2024 Performance Share Plan Award

 

On 8 February 2024, the Company granted conditional share awards to the Persons Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ('PDMRs') and their Persons Closely Associated ('PCAs') listed below under the GlaxoSmithKline 2017 Performance Share Plan ('the Plan'). The Plan was approved by shareholders on 4 May 2017 and allows a performance-related opportunity in the form of conditional awards to be granted to senior executives in the Group, including the Executive Directors and other PDMRs. 

 

Under the terms of the Plan, conditional awards are granted over a specific number of Ordinary Shares or American Depositary Shares ('ADS'), and the percentage of awards that ultimately vests is dependent on the level of achievement against performance targets set by the Remuneration Committee.

 

2024 Performance Measures

 

In accordance with the Remuneration Policy and company growth focus, the awards will be based on the following five measures:

 

Performance Measure

Proportion of

each award

Relative Total Shareholder Return (TSR)

 

30%

Total Sales Growth

 

20%

Adjusted Operating Profit Growth

 

20%

Pipeline Progress

 

20%

ESG: Environment

 

10%

 

The performance period for the awards is the three financial years from 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2026.

 

Relative TSR measure

 

This measure compares the TSR of the Company's Ordinary Shares over the performance period with the TSR of the shares of nine (9) other global pharmaceutical companies (i.e. a comparator group of ten (10) companies including the Company). This TSR comparator group remains unchanged. The companies in the TSR comparator group are AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co, Novartis, Pfizer, Roche Holdings, Sanofi and GSK.

 

In a group of 10 companies, the median (position 5.5) falls between two companies. The vesting schedule for the 2024 awards is as follows:

Ranking position

Vesting Schedule

1st, 2nd or 3rd

100%

4th

70%

5th

40%

Median (Threshold vesting)

25%

6th or below

0%

 

Total Sales & Profit measures

 

The Total Sales and Profit measures recognise the importance of the commercial ambitions in our Investor Update ('IU') and the Committee has set targets that reinforce those commitments.  The targets for the Total Sales and Profit measures are of their nature commercially sensitive at the time of grant. At the end of the performance period, we will provide full disclosure of what has been achieved. Reflecting our growth agenda, the Threshold for vesting for both measures is 99% of target.

 

Both the Total Sales and Profit measures in the 2024 award will vest as follows:

 

 

Performance vs Target

Proportion Vesting

Below Threshold

<99% of Target

Nil

Threshold

99% of Target

25%

Target

100% of Target

50%


103% of Target

75%

Maximum

105% of Target

100%

 

The proportions vesting between the above vesting levels will be calculated on a straight-line basis.

 

Pipeline Progress measure

 

The Pipeline Progress measure, introduced in 2020, reflects our emphasis on Innovation and seeks to reward acceleration and strengthening of the pipeline. The measure is based on two equally weighted elements of our key assets or indications: 

 

Proportion of award

 

Pipeline Progress - Sub-measure

10%

Pivotal trial starts, which focus mainly on phase III registrational trial starts, but may also include phase II starts (for example, in oncology)

10%

Major regulatory approval milestones

 

 

Points will be allocated to the successful assets in each sub-measure based upon their forecast commercial value (peak year sales) at the end of the performance period.

 

The points vesting scales for these sub-measures of the 2024 award will be published as part of the 2023 Annual Report.

 

Due to commercial sensitivity, the Remuneration Committee remains of the view that the Pipeline Progress measure targets cannot be published at the time of grant.  At the end of the performance period we will provide full disclosure of what has been achieved, in terms of both milestones and aggregate points, along with a narrative commentary on performance. 

 

ESG: Environment measure

 

The ESG Environment measure was introduced in 2022, based upon our Trust priority and goal of having a Nature Net Positive and Climate Net Zero impact by 2030, details of which are provided on our website. The ESG Environment measure includes six key performance indicators (KPIs), three towards our Climate ambitions and three towards our Nature ambitions.  To achieve 75% vesting, all six measures must have met their targets by the end of 2026.  To achieve 100% vesting, two of the six measures, at least one in Climate and one in Nature, must have exceeded their targets six months in advance of target date or as over delivery of the target performance level.

 

Notes

 

1.   To the extent that each element of a conditional award does not vest at the end of the three-year performance period, it will lapse.

 

2.   The PDMRs in the transaction notifications below were each granted a conditional award under the terms of the GlaxoSmithKline 2017 Performance Share Plan.  Awards granted are of Ordinary Shares or ADS.

 

3.   Dividends will accrue on the conditional award of Ordinary Shares or ADS during the performance period but will only vest to the extent that the awards themselves vest at the end of the performance period. These dividends are not included in the figures below.

 

4.   For Executive Directors, the award is subject to an additional vesting period of two years (the 'Holding Period') from the normal vesting date, i.e. five years in total.  During the additional Holding Period, the relevant Ordinary Shares or ADS would only be forfeited in the event that the Executive Director was terminated for cause, and the Ordinary Shares or ADS will continue to carry rights to dividend equivalents.
