The ‘Back to Black’ hitmaker’s company recorded just £257,000 profit in November 2011, just a few months after she died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011.
Villeston Ltd – which was set up by Amy’s parents, Mitchell and Janis – has recorded a profit of £1.48million whilst AW Promotions recorded £23,000 profit.
The record company she founded in 2009, Lioness Records, displayed a loss of £210,000.
Meanwhile, her collaborator and friend, Mark Ronson, recently praised the late singer, saying nobody’s talents would ever compare to hers.
He said: “No one’s ever going to compare to Amy because of the talent she had and the unique bond we had, that rapport, that energy in the studio.
“For all the stuff that I did on ‘Back to Black’, I think we only ever spent five or six days together in the studio. Maybe 10. ‘Valerie’ was done in two hours. Her thing was so effortless in a way, because … well, because she would just … it was just what came out – that’s it. ‘That’s it, I’m not changing anything, that’s what came out of me and it’s good enough.’ And every time it was obviously good enough, and special. It was just … a thing.”
