Date:3/19/2008

LONDON, March 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GlaxoSmithKline (NYSE: GSK) today reported its 2007 global giving to charitable initiatives totaled $564 million, equivalent to almost 4% of pre-tax profits for the company (with the FTSE 100 average around 1%). Donations of albendazole treatments for the company's flagship program to eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis (commonly known as elephantiasis) were valued at $29 million, bringing the total number of treatments given since GSK made its commitment 10 years ago to almost 750 million.

Commenting on the figures JP Garnier, CEO of GlaxoSmithKline said: "I want GSK to be part of global healthcare solutions, not only through our medicines and vaccines, but also through our public health programs and work with communities. This is embedded in our business, not just an 'add on'; whether it is eliminating LF, supporting HIV communities, fighting malaria, or preventing diabetes. Our partnerships offer more than a helping hand; they are transforming the lives and prospects of people all over the world."

GSK supports health and education programs in more than 100 countries through donations of medicines and through long-term partnerships that provide financial and practical support. The $564 million investment includes product donations valued at $448 million, cash giving of $82 million and other in-kind donations, such as equipment, valued at $6 million. The costs to administer and deliver these programs were $28 million.

The $448 million of product donations included:

-- A continuation of the Lymphatic Filariasis elimination program which

since 1998 has seen the donation of almost 750 million albendazole

treatments by GSK. This program, now in the tent
