The agreement is subject to Hart-Scott-Rodino regulatory clearance in the United States.

Generic competition to Wellbutrin XL began at the end of 2006 for the 300mg tablet and during the second quarter of 2008 for the 150mg tablet. US sales of Wellbutrin XL in the first quarter of 2009 were euro 45 million (-70%).

GSK will retain existing rights to Wellbutrin XL (excluding Canada) for countries outside the US. Sales of Wellbutrin XL outside the US were euro 7 million in the first quarter of 2009.

GSK expects to record a pre-tax gain of approximately euro 340 million in Other Operating Income as a result of this divestment. The company now expects the combined total of Other Operating Income and profit on disposal of interests in associates to be around euro 700 million in 2009.
