Update on Restatement of 2020 Preliminary Results

("PCF", the "Bank" or the "Group")


Update on Restatement of 2020 Preliminary Results




Further to the announcement of 3 August, PCF is providing a further update in relation to the ongoing review of its financial controls and reporting processes.


During the course of this ongoing review PCF has identified certain accounting matters that impact the previously announced restatement of profit before impairment of goodwill and tax for the year ended 30 September 2020 on 11 March 2021 that stated it was anticipated that such net reduction of profit would not be more than £750,000. 


As a result of the matters identified the net reduction is now anticipated to be greater than £750,000.  It remains the case that none of the new matters identified indicate to the Board that any monies have inappropriately left the PCF Group. At this time PCF cannot give further guidance as work is ongoing to establish the actual extent of that further reduction.


PCF will provide a further update in due course.


PCF's shares remain suspended from trading.
