Wrong text for Parity:

Parity warns H2 will be only breakeven. Extension on large PCS division contract remains delayed and it is anticipated that scope will be reduced if approved. Will restructure PCS division, cost £300k-400k. Brave face stmt: "The actions taken in the short-term to restructure the Consultancy business make us more targeted and relevant to client needs."

PCI-PAL (PCIP) agrees to pay sacked CEO his contracted entitlements plus £100,100 in full and final settlement of all other claims.

"There is still a large amount of stock at retailers that was sold at aggressively discounted prices. Some of the large blocks of stock of "bread-and-butter" items that were sold represented more than a year's supply for our entire market." Brave face: "There are some incredible [really?] products in the pipeline that will finally get us back on the front foot and give us the ability to take back the market share that we have given away."
Veltyco Group (VLTY) continues to struggle with cash collection in the online financial trading marketing vertical, has reduced marketing activities in this vertical to zero. May write down receivables. Cash only €0.6m. "If the Company is unable to increase its overall cash position, its ability to provide the level of marketing spend to support the launch of its own regulated online financial trading brand...in December."
Mothercare (MTC) H1 adj pretax -£6.2m (-£2.6m). "UK like-for-like sales decline of 11.1%, reflecting wider market uncertainty and negative brand coverage in connection with the Group's refinancing." There's been no trading stmt for 4 months! Expects performance to remain volatile.

Wynnstay Group (WYN) guides FY profit head of market forecasts.
Redcentric (RCN) H1 rev down 8%. Reinstates div 0.4p. "Our contract win rates have been lower than expected and the quality of the new business pipeline has reduced. While our new sales director, Brendan Lynch, has made good initial progress in implementing the required changes, it is taking time to rebuild a high-quality sales function."
