TABLE OF CONTENTS
On May 12, 2009, EVOTEC AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: EVT; NASDAQ: EVTC) (Evotec) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009 and released its 2009 First Quarter Report. The press release and 2009 First Quarter Report are furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and Exhibit 99.2, respectively, and are incorporated by reference herein.
Included in the press release are adjusted results, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures. Evotec uses these measures to give additional insight into its financial performance as a supplement to understand, manage, and evaluate its business results and make operating decisions. Adjusted results should be considered in addition to the reported results prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), but should not be considered as a substitute. The non-GAAP financial measure used in the press release is operating loss. These adjusted results exclude costs related to impairment charges and restructuring expenses. Management views these costs as not indicative of the profitability of Evotecs ongoing or future operations and therefore considers the adjusted results as a supplement to be viewed in conjunction with the reported IFRS results.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
