"We’re seeing more customers than ever shopping early for their holiday gifts, which is just one of the signs that this is going to be an unprecedented holiday season. Big thank you to our employees and selling partners around the world who’ve been busy getting ready to deliver for customers this holiday," CEO Jeff Bezos said.
For the holiday quarter, the company expects net sales to be between $120 billion and $121 billion, growth representing between 28% and 38$ year over year. Analysts are expecting revenue of $112.32 billion for the quarter.
Operating income for the period is expected to range between $1 billion and $4.5 billion, compared with $3.9 billion a year ago. That estimate assumes about $4 billion of costs related to COVID-19.
The company also announced that AWS, its cloud services arm, saw revenue climb 29% with subscriptions rising 33%.
