Media insiders are suggesting that the megalomaniacal managerial mantle of “Porn King” of New Zealand may now have migrated from Steve Crow to John Malcolm Carr CPA. Why?
Answer: Shirish Daddaram Vagal of Bucklands Beach Auckland has just resigned as director of porn ‘mother company’ CVC Group Ltd. The resignation was registered on the Companies Office website by Steve Crow on 19 May and made effective from 14 May 2010. Steve Crow who resigned as director on 15 May 2010 was served a banning order on Friday night 14 May, preventing him holding a company directorship for four years in Australia and/or New Zealand, issued by the Ministry of Economic Development. These two resignations leave John Malcolm Carr – in the proverbial sense – ‘holding the [porn] baby’ – as he is now the sole director of porn ‘mother company’ CVC Group Ltd and the sole director of hardcore porn company Eden Digital Ltd. (Mr Shirish Vagal and his wife Gulshan Shirish Vagal still own 180,000 shares in CVC Group Ltd).
On 20 April 2010 John Malcolm Carr (whose residential address is listed as 14/31 Greenlane Road, Remuera, Auckland on the NZ Companies website) – registered his purchase of all the shares for each of the four NZ-registered companies he directs that were formerly all 100% owned by Carr Consulting P.A. (a Florida registered privately-owned corporation of which he is CEO and Chief Compliance Officer). These four companies he is sole director of and which he now owns personally, are (1) Velocity Partners Ltd, (2) First Virtual Deposit and Nominee Company Ltd, (3) Shelf Company No. 10 Ltd, and (4) PJ Digital Ltd. The first company owns a 39% stake in CVC Group Ltd which owns hard core porn companies Eden Digital Ltd, co-directed by John Carr and Steve Crow, Sidefx Ltd and Vixen Publications Ltd – both directed by Steve Crow. A company Steve Crow directs, HWGA Co. Ltd owns a 40% stake in CVC Group Ltd and Electronic Publishing Ltd directed by John Carr owns 9%. CVC Group also owns two other porn companies that were directed by Steve Crow that are in liquidation. Two other porn companies directed by Crow have recently been struck off the register of companies by the Registrar following the completion of liquidation proceedings. Prior to the recent share transfers – John Malcolm Carr stated that Carr Consulting P.A. has a revenue of $1 – 10 M, that he is its CEO and Chief Compliance Officer and that the company has 25-100 employees.
Concerns have been raised by the Society with the National Enforcement Unit (Report dated 19/08/09) over information registered on the Companies Office website by CVC Group Ltd director John Malcolm Carr relating to a number of companies he directs. Mr Carr has close links with fellow CVC Group Ltd director Stephen Peter Crow (Steve Crow aka “NZ Porn King”)
