1. Operational performance 

Revenues without milestones increased in the first quarter of 2013 by 5% compared to the first quarter of 2012

Reported Group revenues for the first three months of 2013 decreased by 15% to € 17.1 m (2012: € 20.1 m). Revenues for the first three months of the previous year included a milestone earned in Evotec's development partnership with Andromeda/Teva with DiaPep277® (€ 3.9 m). Excluding milestones, Evotec's revenues for the first quarter 2013 would have increased by 5% over the same period of the previous year. This growth was driven by an increase in revenues within the Company's drug discovery alliances and from new integrated collaborations such as the Cure Beta partnership with Janssen Pharmaceuticals ("Janssen") and the multi-target alliance with Bayer entered into in the second half of 2012. As anticipated, the absence of milestones resulted in an operating loss for the first quarter of 2013 of € 2.7 m. As stated before, the operating result of Evotec may vary significantly between quarters as a result of the timing of performance-based milestone payments and partnering events.

Overall, the Company is on track to achieve increased full-year profitability over 2012 (before impairment and changes in contingent consideration, if any). Liquidity including cash, cash equivalents and investments at the end of March remained strong at € 60.4 m.
