In a presentation titled “Reaching the goal with higher speed and confidence”, CEO Dr Werner Lanthaler and CFO Enno Spillner presented Evotec SE’s current strategic, scientific and technological developments, highlights of the 2021 business year and the commitment to sustainability/ESG. Evotec is committed to increasing the probabilities of success in research and development. With AI & ML enabled platforms that are based on patient data, human disease models, and biomarkers, Evotec intends to identify clinical relevance early and improve patient stratification strategies.
All actions of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board were approved by the Annual General Meeting 2022 for the fiscal year 2021. Furthermore, the shareholders confirmed the appointment of BDO AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Hamburg, as auditors for the fiscal year 2022.
The Annual General Meeting also elected a new member of the Supervisory Board: Effective immediately, Camilla Macapili Languille will become a new member of the Supervisory Board of Evotec SE. Camilla Macapili Languille is Canadian citizen and Head of Life Sciences & Healthcare Investments at the Mubadala Investment Company (“MIC”) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Since 2013 she held different positions at MIC and previously worked as an analyst and Investment Manager at JPMorgan Securities Inc. (USA), Virgin Management Ltd. (UK) and Daiwa Capital Advisory Partners (France). Moreover, she has more than 20 years of experience in corporate finance and investments in the areas of private equity, public equities and LP investments, with a focus on healthcare.
Camilla Macapili Languille succeeds Kasim Kutay in the Supervisory Board who resigns from his position for personal reasons. Kasim Kutay was member of Evotec’s Supervisory Board from June 2020.
“I would like to express my sincere thanks, also on behalf of my colleagues on the Evotec Management Board, to our Supervisory Board member Kasim Kutay for the great cooperation over the last two years. We always appreciated his very qualified advice and constructive feedback. At the same time, I would like to warmly welcome Camilla Macapili Languille to the Supervisory Board of Evotec SE. We look forward to working with her,” said Dr Werner Lanthaler, Chief Executive Officer of Evotec.
Likewise, the shareholders approved with the required majority the cancellation of the Authorised Capital 2021 and the creation of a new authorised capital (Authorised Capital 2022) in the amount of 20% of the Company’s share capital with the possibility to exclude shareholders’ subscription rights.
Furthermore, the Annual General Meeting 2022 agreed to create conditional capital for the issuance of subscription rights to members of the Management Board of Evotec SE, to members of management bodies of affiliated companies in Germany and abroad as well as to selected executives of Evotec SE and affiliated companies in Germany and abroad in the context of a Share Performance Plan 2022.
At the Annual General Meeting 2021, a new remuneration system was presented by the Management Board and the Supervisory Board and approved by the required majority of shareholders. After an intensive exchange with the shareholders of Evotec SE, the Supervisory Board decided to submit a reviewed and revised remuneration system to the Annual General Meeting 2022 for resolution, despite the approval.
This revised remuneration system for the Management Board and the Supervisory Board has now been approved by the Annual General Meeting 2022 with a clear majority of 94.48%. Likewise, the presented Remuneration Report 2021 of Evotec SE received the majority approval of the shareholders (53.18%).
