Conduct: Mr Neil Stuart Malcolm John (“Mr John” ) caused Houseprint Limited (“Houseprint”) to continue to use a flawed business model which had been instrumental in the failure of at least three previous companies that he acted as director of and which ultimately led to the failure of Houseprint with losses to creditors of £493,010.

  • Prior to Houseprint, he acted as a director of Masterclass Associates Limited (“Masterclass”), Ambeck Corporation Limited (“Ambeck”) and Tyson Media Limited (“TML”)
  • When Masterclass ceased trading, the business was continued through Ambeck, TML and then Houseprint.
  • Masterclass, Ambeck and TML entered liquidation with losses to creditors totalling £202,149, £151,328 and £314,960 respectively.
  • Day to day affairs were handled by the same individuals in each company
  • The companies utilised virtual office addresses with employees working from home
  • The companies operated the same business model, outsourcing the vast majority of work to printers based abroad
  • Masterclass, Ambeck, TML and Houseprint all failed owing to purported issues with suppliers
  • There were no reasonable or probably grounds for expecting Houseprint to succeed where Masterclass, Ambeck and TML had already failed.
