GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK.LN) upgraded its guidance on Wednesday after it posted growing profit in the third quarter on revenue that beat market expectations.

The British pharmaceutical company made a pretax profit of 1.95 billion pounds ($2.51 billion) in the third quarter, compared with GBP1.71 billion the year earlier. Turnover increased 16% to GBP9.39 billion, beating analyst forecasts of GBP9.04 billion.

Meanwhile adjusted earnings per share--a metric closely watched by analysts--rose to 38.6 pence from 35.5 pence in the third quarter of 2019.

Glaxo said that it is now sees full-year adjusted EPS flat when accounting for currency effects. Previously, the company guided for a decrease of between 3% to 5%.

It confirmed that it was on track to file a new drug application for its cancer drug Zejula by the end of the year having reported positive data from a clinical trial in September that looked at the medicine as a treatment for ovarian cancer.

The company declared a quarterly dividend of 19 pence a share and confirmed its 80 pence total target for the full-year.
