GlaxoSmithKline

Glaxo is based in the United Kingdom. In July 2012, the company agreed to plead guilty and to pay $3 billion to settle criminal charges and civil claims related to its “unlawful promotion of certain prescription drugs, its failure to report certain safety data, and its civil liability for alleged false price reporting practices,” according to the U.S. Justice Department.

GlaxoSmithKline reports payments made to physicians for speaking and consulting beginning in the second quarter of 2009. In 2011, it began reporting research payments in a separate report. In the fourth quarter of 2012, the company expanded its disclosure reports to include meals, travel and other value.

GlaxoSmithKline's 2013 U.S. sales: $12.8 billion. Source: IMS Health.
