- Dec.20.2018: Pfizer deal paves way for Glaxo break-up. Britain’s biggest drugs company struck a landmark deal yesterday with a leading American rival that prepares the way for the break-up of GlaxoSmithKline. Glaxo agreed to merge its consumer healthcare division with Pfizer’s through a joint venture which will be the world’s biggest over-the-counter medicines business. Glaxo also plans to demerge the business within 3 years of the deal closing in the second half of next year through a separate British stock market listing, which would create a new FTSE 100 company valued in the region of £40bn.
