Evotec AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: EVT, TecDAX, ISIN: DE0005664809) today announced that its research alliance with Boehringer Ingelheim has reached a milestone triggering a payment of EUR 1.0 m to Evotec. The milestone was for the transition of a back-up compound from a respiratory programme into pre-clinical development.

Dr Mario Polywka, Chief Operating Officer of Evotec, commented: "We have now achieved twenty three milestones as part of the collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim. The completed research phase of this alliance has led to significant potential clinical milestones and royalties for compounds that are already in pre-clinical and clinical development if they progress successfully."


ABOUT THE EVOTEC & BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM ALLIANCE

In 2004, Evotec entered into a multi-year, multi-target drug discovery alliance with Boehringer Ingelheim to jointly identify and develop preclinical development candidates for the treatment of various disease areas including CNS, inflammation, cardiometabolic and respiratory diseases. In 2009, the collaboration was extended for an additional four years and the scope expanded to include oncology targets. Under the terms of the agreement, Boehringer Ingelheim has full ownership and global responsibility for clinical development, manufacturing and commercialisation of the compounds identified. In return, Evotec receives ongoing research payments and pre-clinical milestones. Furthermore, the contract provides substantial long-term upside for Evotec through potential payments for successful milestone achievements during clinical development and royalties when new drugs reach the market.
