The termination is probably "by mutual agreement" because it includes the payment!

The real silliness is just that in the phrase "by mutual agreement", the word "mutual" is completely redundant - if either party is opposed to an arrangement, it isn't an agreement!

Smallcap Sweep. 26-Feb-18

Feedback (FDBK) H1 rev up 13% but post-tax - £348,079 (-£126,000). Do we need loss to the nearest Pound? "As a small team, we experienced some operational delays over the past 12 months [mentioned in Nov] which slowed our commercial progress, however the first CE marked release of the TexRAD technology in November was a major achievement for the Company and will underpin the next stage of growth."
Falcon Media House (FAL) wins deal to provide live and on demand digital streaming technology to JPR Network, the Mumbai-based cable network provider. First India contract. "Q-Flow overcomes the challenges of congested and slow connections to deliver content to the end consumer using the most efficient and cost-effective route, resulting in seamless streaming over even the most challenging networks and mobile conditions." I doubt that bit of hyperbole. Cap is a chunky £3.7m and Falcon shares have soared like a brick pig since IPO.
Avation (AVAP) H1 rev up 16% but EPS fell 15%. H2 outlook - a "materially increased lease revenue due to increased fleet size."
