Due to the criminal cyber-attack discovered on 6 April 2023, productivity was affected in the second and third quarters. In response to the criminal cyber-attack, Evotec took immediate action to contain and remediate the attack by taking its external-facing systems offline. This was deemed necessary to protect all the Company’s partners and stakeholders and meant Evotec could ensure that the integrity of scientific data remained unaffected.
