This press release includes forward-looking statements. All
statements other than statements of historical fact, including

operations or financial position, made in this press release are
forward-looking. We use words such as anticipates, believes, expects,
future, intends, and similar expressions to identify forward-looking
statements. Forward-looking statements reflect management’s current
expectations and are inherently uncertain. Actual results could differ
materially for a variety of reasons, including, among others,
fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, changes in global economic
conditions and customer spending, world events, the rate of growth of
the Internet, online commerce, and cloud services, the amount that
Amazon 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 legal proceedings and claims,
fulfillment, sortation, delivery, and data center optimization, risks of
inventory management, seasonality, the degree to which we enter into,
maintain, and develop commercial agreements, proposed and completed
acquisitions and strategic transactions, payments risks, and risks of
fulfillment throughput and productivity. In addition, the current global
economic climate amplifies many of these risks. These risks and
uncertainties, as well as other risks and uncertainties that could cause
our actual results to differ significantly from management’s
expectations, are described in greater detail in Amazon’s filings with
the SEC, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and
subsequent filings. Although we undertake no obligation to revise or
update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new
information, future events, or otherwise, except as required by law, you
are advised to consult any additional disclosures we make in our Annual
Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and Current
Reports on Form 8-K filed with the SEC.
