Analysis: Amazon Air And ATSG Grow Together

AMZN

Amazon's announcement that it will lease 12 all-cargo aircraft from a key contract carrier demonstrates how the online retail and logistics giant has created a formidable private airline in the span of four years to keep up with the enormous growth of e-commerce. The additional Boeing 767 freighters will expand Amazon's (NASDAQ: AMZN) fleet beyond 80 aircraft by the end of 2021, and a new report from researchers at DePaul University in Chicago estimates Amazon Air could have about 200 aircraft at its disposal in seven to eight years. The new aircraft stem from a December 2018 deal with Air Transport Services Group (NASDAQ: ATSG) that gave Amazon options for 17 aircraft and increased rights to own a piece of its business partner. In exchange for the commitment for 12 more leases, Amazon will receive 7 million warrants to purchase ATSG stock, increasing its potential ownership stake to 38%. If Amazon leases five more aircraft under the 2018 deal, its equity stake in ATSG could reach 40% — double the investment rights granted in the initial 2016 partnership. So far, Amazon has not exercised any of the warrants granted by Wilmington, Ohio-based ATSG.

Elon Musk calls for breakup of Amazon

AMZN TSLA

Elon Musk tweeted its ‘Time to break up Amazon’, after the tech giant said Musk’s upcoming COVID-19 book does not meet Amazon’s guidelines for sale. We have been watching Elon Musk start to criticize yet-- he's got yet another target, I guess you could say. Rick Newman, Musk recently said he was going to step back from Twitter for a bit, but then he didn't. Amazon actually is in position to be a competitor of Tesla because it has invested in an electric-vehicle startup called Rivian, and Amazon wants Rivian to build 100,000 electric vans that Amazon is going to use in its distribution fleet. So Amazon essentially has a stake in a company, an electric-vehicle company, that competes with Tesla. So of course Elon Musk wants to break up Amazon because he doesn't want Amazon's money behind a competitor.

Expert PPC Ads Agency Changing Customer Acquisition Game with Amazon DSP Service

AMZN

LONDON, June 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Clear Ads, a global leader in paid-advertising management services, is garnering attention of Amazon brands worldwide for its Amazon DSP (Demand Side Platform) Self-Service. Clear Ads's Amazon DSP Self Service has proven increasingly popular in recent months, particularly as brands become more familiar with the platform and decide to harness its powerful features, Meressa says.

Our Self Service agency gives Amazon businesses exclusive access at the fraction of this price, and in return, our clients receive the transparency and expertise they deserve while using the platform," Meressa continues. The Amazon DSP Self Service by Clear Ads ensures that brands take full advantage of the platform, and this includes focusing on using the New-to-Brand metrics provided. While Amazon offers a variety of reporting tools, New-to-Brand metrics–a recent addition to the platform–is designed to help brands discover whether advertised purchases are attributed to new or established customers.

Slack joins Amazon services to take on Microsoft Teams

AMZN

Enterprise messaging platform slack and Amazon announced a new partnership today that is meant to appeal more to enterprise customers and to take on its closest rival Microsoft Teams. “The future of enterprise software will be driven by the combination of cloud services and workstream collaboration tools,” said Slack CEO and co-founder Stewart Butterfield in a press release. Slack and AWS will strategically partner to help distributed development teams communicate and become more efficient and agile in managing their AWS resources from inside Slack, Amazon said in a statement late Thursday. “Together, AWS and Slack are giving developer teams the ability to collaborate and innovate faster on the front end with applications, while giving them the ability to efficiently manage their backend cloud infrastructure,” said Andy Jassy, AWS CEO.

Slack partners with Amazon for video calls to take on Teams

TWTR AMZN +2 more TWTR AMZN FB DTRUMP

Slack's video and voice calls to move to Amazon Chime in major push to take on Teams. Slack might feel like an increasingly ubiquitous part of office life for many workers, but it's easy to forget that it still has a relative shortage of really massive global clients, for whom moving over to a new chat and internal messaging service could be a serious headache. It's a partnership that will see Amazon roll out Slack to many of its employees (although it's not saying all of them), and from the point of view of most users, will bring a change to Slack's video and voice calling service. It'll be moving over to Amazon Chime, Amazon's own video conferencing solution, which Slack says should bring some quick improvements down the line, including the potential to video call from the mobile app, which Slack currently lacks on its own.

Slack partners with Amazon to take on Microsoft Teams - News Brig

TWTR AMZN +3 more TWTR AMZN FB MSFT DTRUMP

Voice and video conferencing is a particular weak point of Slack compared to Microsoft Teams, but this new integration should mean it will be vastly improved in the future. While Slack has long used Amazon Web Services (AWS) to power parts of its chat app, it’s now committing to using Amazon’s cloud services as its preferred partner for storage, compute, database, security, analytics, machine learning, and future collaboration features. Slack has opted for partnerships and integrations with a variety of rival software and cloud providers, and hasn’t always attempted to build those features into its own app. In fact, Facebook has said from the beginning that initially the board will only restore posts that the board concludes it has removed in error. Eventually the board will issue opinions on what Facebook ought to take down; one person who is closely involved told me that could come within a few months. But it’s not clear any of that will be up and running before, say, the 2020 US presidential election. He won’t hear most or even all of the cases brought to the board. And perhaps, as he begins to review cases involving offensive and dangerous speech later, he’ll find reason to vote for their removal from Facebook. But until then I’ll probably find myself thinking of the decision he made last week — the moment in his Stanford classroom, with protests raging in the world around him, when he shut off his Zoom recording to leave no record of his words.
