AMAZON numbers

I feel bad that I wasn't able to share with all of you the stats that we pulled for our rebuttal so I have decided to post them to the Blog for everyone to see. I hope you enjoy reading throught our list.

FACTS About AMAZON

Amazon Never Stopped Focusing on Growth
They continued to introduced High Margin Products
Did you know they just purchased China largest online book store?

Focusing on Growth doesn’t mean losing site of Profits
Note that failure to adapt a growth strategy would have resulted in a decline not a flat growth rate
Due to AMAZON Growth they were able to receive economies of scale

Show us a company that start out debt free, and immediately produces a profit

Is their room for growth?

Largest Population in the World is in Asia
Asia 56% population (8.9% Internet Users)
America 5%

2001 & 2002 results
Don’t play the Market Risk card on us
Amazon should not be penalized for Market Risk
