Restatement of 2020 Preliminary Results



PCF Group plc announces that, subsequent to the Preliminary Results Announcement made on 9 December 2020, during the process of finalising the audit of its financial statements, for the year ended 30 September 2020, a number of adjustments will be made to the previously announced profit.

The adjustments are expected to constitute a net reduction of not more than £750,000 against a previously announced profit before impairment of goodwill and tax of £3.9m. The principle adjustments relate to the charging to the profit and loss previously capitalised costs for software projects, a reduction in an interest receivable balance from the Employee Benefit Trust and adjustments to accruals for interest due on stage 3 loans offset by lower staff incentive rewards.

The business remains profitable and cash generative, in spite of the unprecedented challenges that Covid-19 has created. The Group remains confident in its systems and controls and in the Group's business prospects.

The final version of the Annual Report and Financial Statements is expected to be signed and published in the next two weeks, at which time a trading update will be provided.
