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."
