Evotec bounces back



Evotec SE reported a double-digit increase in group revenue for the first six months despite a serious disruption to its business from a cyberattack in the second quarter which affected productivity across the company. Direct costs from the incident were €39.3 million. But this was more than offset by new and continuing business at the start of the year generating revenue for the first six months of €383.8 million, up by 14% from a year earlier.
