Despite a better-than-expected fourth quarter last year, the Seattle-based company posted a full year net loss of 2.7 billion USD, as compared to a net income of 33.4 billion USD in 2021
“Our relentless focus on providing the broadest selection, exceptional value, and fast delivery drove customer demand in our Stores business during the fourth quarter that exceeded our expectations — and we're appreciative of all our customers who turned to Amazon this past holiday season”, commented Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon. “We're also encouraged by the continued progress we're making in reducing our cost to serve in the operations part of our Stores business. In the short term, we face an uncertain economy, but we remain quite optimistic about the long-term opportunities for Amazon”, he added.
