Director dealings: GSK executive lowers stake

(Sharecast News) - GlaxoSmithKline company Victoria Whyte disposed of 5,199 ordinary shares in the UK's biggest drugs company on Tuesday.
Whyte, who joined GSK's corporate secretariat more than 30 years ago, sold the shares at an average price of 1,553.80p each, for a total transaction value of £80,782.06.

Just last week, GlaxoSmithKline reported full-year sales of more than £30bn last Wednesday but warned that earnings in the current year would be hurt by generic competition to its blockbuster asthma treatment.

GSK revealed 2018 group sales were £30.8bn, for a 2% increase on the previous year, while pre-tax profits were ahead by 36% at £4.8bn.

Fourth-quarter sales came in at £8.2bn and adjusted earnings per share at 31.2p. Analysts had been looking for adjusted EPS of around 27.7p.

As of 1630 GMT, GSK shares had picked up 0.40% to 1,551.80p.
