Not only is the amount very high, but it also greatly exceeds financial market forecasts. They were rather counting on7.7 billion dollars, but Amazon exploded its score. The summer of 2023 has therefore been very successful for the company, and shareholders are certainly rubbing their hands right now. News which confirms that the company is quietly continuing its exit from the crisis. These increased profits are also accompanied by a rather significant increase in turnover.
Impressive financial performance
Compared to the Last year, the firm's turnover increased by 13% to reach an impressive $143 billion.. A sum almost equivalent to the GDP of Morocco, no less. A performance that analysts did not expect either.
In addition to this nice increase in turnover, operating profit is also climbing. It quadrupled and reached the threshold of $11.2 billion. Figures that perfectly reflect the strength of Amazon in the market, which does not move from its throne.
The CEO of Amazon explains that part of this success corresponds to the new strategy put in place by the company to optimize their deliveries, particularly in the USA. Optimization of the order processing network which mainly concerns Prime subscribers.
Technological challenges and innovations

However, Amazon is lagging slightly< /strong>in the field of AI, particularly against behemoths like Google and Microsoft. Andy Jassy wants to be reassuring on this aspect, and assures that the company will invest more widely in the field, and more specifically in generative AI. The Alexa voice assistant, for example, has greatly improved in recent times and has increased functionality.
Amazon has also been able to place its money strategically, by investing four billion dollars in the start-up Anthropic, responsible for the Claude language model, one of ChatGPT's competitors.
One might believe that Amazon's renewed health would only be due to #8217;to the post-pandemic economic recovery, but that would be simplifying reality. The company knows how to adapt, innovate, and take advantage of the upward currents at the right time. Other reasons, less glamorous, are certainly part of the magic equation.
