“It was another strong quarter of progress for Amazon,” said Andy Jassy, Amazon CEO. “We continued lowering our cost to serve in our fulfillment network, while also providing Prime customers with the fastest delivery speeds we’ve ever recorded. Our AWS growth stabilized as customers started shifting from cost optimization to new workload deployment, and AWS has continued to add to its meaningful leadership position in the cloud with a slew of generative AI releases that make it much easier and more cost-effective for companies to train and run models (Trainium and Inferentia chips), customize Large Language Models to build generative AI applications and agents (Bedrock), and write code much more efficiently with CodeWhisperer. We’re also continuing to see strong demand for our advertising services as the team keeps innovating for brands, including the ramp up for Thursday Night Football with the ability for advertisers to tailor their spots by audience and create interactive experiences for consumers. We remain excited about what lies ahead for customers and the company.”


Obsessing over the customer experience
Amazon obsesses over how to make customers’ lives better and easier every day. This is true for consumers, sellers, brands, developers, enterprises, and creators. For example, Amazon:
Delivered its largest selection of products to U.S. Prime members at the fastest speeds ever in the quarter. The company now offers U.S. Prime members free Same-Day or One-Day Delivery on tens of millions of the most popular items. Across the top 60 largest U.S. metro areas, more than half of Prime member orders arrived the same or next day in the quarter. So far this year, Amazon has delivered more than 1.8 billion units to U.S. Prime members the same or next day—nearly four times the number of units delivered at those speeds by this point in 2019.
Held the biggest Prime Day event ever on July 11-12, in the third quarter, as Prime members worldwide purchased more than 375 million items and saved more than $2.5 billion. This year, Amazon offered more deals than any past Prime Day, with Home, Fashion, and Beauty among the top-selling deal categories. This was the largest Prime Day ever for Amazon’s independent sellers, most of which are small and medium-sized businesses, and the first where U.S.-based Prime members could shop deals directly from merchant sites using Buy with Prime.
Increased selection in the U.S. Amazon store. Amazon added new beauty and fashion brands, including D’Amelio Footwear, Dyson hair care, IT Cosmetics, Ralph Lauren Fragrances, and Urban Decay, and extended its collaboration with Victoria’s Secret. This marks the first time Victoria’s Secret lingerie and apparel are available through a retail partner in North America. Amazon also expanded its selection of grocery items from brands such as General Mills and Coca-Cola.
Announced Amazon Business is one of our fastest growing offerings, with a $35 billion annualized gross sales run rate and serving more than 6 million customers. Amazon Business allows businesses, municipalities, and organizations to procure products like office supplies and other bulk items easily and at discounted prices.
Enabled customers worldwide to save more than $1 billion in the last 12 months through Subscribe & Save, a program that helps customers save time and money on regularly scheduled deliveries. Customers select their preferred delivery frequency for eligible products and can cancel or change their subscription at any time. The program has tens of millions of global subscribers with hundreds of millions of subscriptions.
Announced that Amazon Day deliveries, which give Prime members the ability to choose a designated day of the week that makes sense for them to receive their orders, saved 136 million boxes in 2022. On top of making deliveries work for customers’ personal schedules, this free Prime benefit uses 30% fewer boxes on average.
Released Amazon’s annual U.S. Small Business Empowerment Report for 2022, which detailed that more than 60% of sales in Amazon’s store came from independent sellers, most of which are small and medium-sized businesses. U.S.-based independent sellers sold more than 4.1 billion products and averaged more than $230,000 in sales. Amazon also announced a Small Business Search filter, which helps customers easily discover and shop for products from small businesses and artisans while shopping in Amazon’s store.
Marked the 10th anniversary of and announced that Amazon India has enabled cumulative ecommerce exports of over $7 billion. By 2025, Amazon India has a goal to enable cumulative ecommerce exports of $20 billion, digitize 10 million small businesses, and create 2 million jobs in India.
Premiered AIR, which launched in more theaters worldwide than any previous Amazon Original film. The film subsequently debuted on Prime Video and ranked No. 3 on Nielsen’s Streaming Top 10 list during the first three days of its release. The company also premiered additional Amazon Original films and series including the final seasons of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and Emmy-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; the global spy thriller Citadel, which was the No. 1 title on Prime Video in nearly 200 countries and territories during its premiere weekend; and Emmy-

nominated Jury Duty, which was the No. 1 title on Freevee during the month it premiered and delivered the highest number of viewers in the U.S. on Freevee in a single month.
Earned 68 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including three nominations in the Outstanding Comedy Series category for Prime Video’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Freevee’s Jury Duty, and MGM’s Wednesday. Jury Duty became the first advertising-based video-on-demand series nominated in a major Emmy category, while The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel became the most nominated streaming comedy in Emmy history with 80 nominations over its five seasons. Daisy Jones & The Six also earned nine nominations and The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power earned six nominations.
Grew Prime Video’s international slate of content with more than 40 new local Amazon Originals and live sporting events. Medellín (France) and My Fault (Spain) became the most watched non-English-language local Original titles in Prime Video history outside of their home territories. New global programming also included Deadloch (Australia), Caravana das Drags (Brazil), The Gryphon (Germany), Dahaad (India), Takeshi’s Castle (Japan), De Viaje con los Derbez Season Three (Mexico), and Gangs of Lagos (Nigeria).
Launched Amazon MGM Studios Distribution to license Amazon Original and MGM library content to third parties after debuting on Prime Video. This will include movies and TV series, such as Coming 2 America and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, among others. Titles available cover a variety of highly marketable formats and genres with distribution rights available.
Partnered with Pinterest to display ads on its website for products sold in Amazon’s store, where over 463 million people go each month to find recipes, home, and style inspiration.

Inventing on behalf of customers
Amazon is driven by a passion for invention across all of its business areas. The company builds new products and services that customers ask for, and also invents new ones that customers didn’t know they wanted but make their lives or businesses better in some meaningful way. For example, Amazon:
Announced new AWS technologies and capabilities that help customers of all sizes take advantage of generative AI, improve productivity, and enhance their security posture. These include:
More choice for Amazon Bedrock customers with the addition of Cohere as a foundation model provider and the latest foundation models from Anthropic and Stability AI.

New capabilities for Amazon GuardDuty, AWS’s threat detection service that helps protect customers from the latest threats using machine learning, anomaly detection, and integrated threat intelligence. New capabilities include new container runtime protection for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), extended coverage for data stored in Amazon Aurora, and support for serverless applications in AWS Lambda.
Amazon Aurora I/O-Optimized, a new configuration for Amazon Aurora (AWS’s high-performance, fully-managed relational database service) that offers improved price performance and predictable pricing for customers with input/output (I/O)-intensive applications.
The AWS Generative AI Innovation Center to help customers successfully build and deploy generative AI solutions.

Introduced new, more advanced machine learning models to help advertisers reach previously unaddressable audiences with Amazon Ads. The new machine learning models analyze a range of signals to help advertisers predict and reach highly relevant audiences with optimal cost-efficiency, which is critical to reaching desired audiences as the advertising industry moves away from third-party cookies. Performance improvements include an increase in click-through rate, an increase in return on ad spend, and a decrease in cost per impression.
Launched Amazon Hub Delivery in the U.S. In this flexible delivery program, Amazon partners with local businesses, such as florists or dry cleaners, to deliver packages for Amazon. Partners receive packages each morning and can make deliveries when it works best for their schedule. Amazon’s goal is to onboard 2,500 partners in 23 states by the end of 2023.

Supporting employees, delivery service partners, communities, and the environment
In addition to its focus on customers, Amazon strives to make every day better for its employees and delivery service partners. Amazon also believes that success and scale bring broad responsibility to help the planet, future generations, and local communities in which the company has a significant presence. For example, the company:
Was named the top corporate giver in the Puget Sound metro region by the Puget Sound Business Journal and in the Washington, D.C., metro region by The Washington Business Journal.

Announced the global expansion of Amazon’s Cancer Advocacy, Resources, Education, and Support (CARES) program by the end of 2023 for all Amazon employees and family members with cancer.

Financial Guidance
The following forward-looking statements reflect’s expectations as of August 3, 2023, and are subject to substantial uncertainty. Our results are inherently unpredictable and may be materially affected by many factors, such as fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, changes in global economic and geopolitical conditions and customer demand and spending (including the impact of recessionary fears), inflation, interest rates, regional labor market constraints, world events, the rate of growth of the Internet, online commerce, and cloud services, and the various factors detailed below.
Third Quarter 2023 Guidance
Net sales are expected to be between $138.0 billion and $143.0 billion, or to grow between 9% and 13% compared with third quarter 2022. This guidance anticipates a favorable impact of approximately 120 basis points from foreign exchange rates.
Operating income is expected to be between $5.5 billion and $8.5 billion, compared with $2.5 billion in third quarter 2022.
This guidance assumes, among other things, that no additional business acquisitions, restructurings, or legal settlements are concluded.

A conference call will be webcast live today at 2:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. ET, and will be available for at least three months at This call will contain forward-looking statements and other material information regarding the Company’s financial and operating results.

These forward-looking statements are inherently difficult to predict. Actual results and outcomes could differ materially for a variety of reasons, including, in addition to the factors discussed above, the amount that invests in new business opportunities and the timing of those investments, the mix of products and services sold to customers, the mix of net sales derived from products as compared with services, the extent to which we owe income or other taxes, competition, management of growth, potential fluctuations in operating results, international growth and expansion, the outcomes of claims, litigation, government investigations, and other proceedings, fulfillment, sortation, delivery, and data center optimization, risks of inventory management, variability in demand, the degree to which the Company enters into, maintains, and develops commercial agreements, proposed and completed acquisitions and strategic transactions, payments risks, and risks of fulfillment throughput and productivity. Other risks and uncertainties include, among others, risks related to new products, services, and technologies, system interruptions, government regulation and taxation, and fraud. In addition, global economic and geopolitical conditions and additional or unforeseen circumstances, developments, or events may give rise to or amplify many of these risks. More information about factors that potentially could affect’s financial results is included in’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent filings.
