To Be Held May 17, 2005

 


 

The 2005 Annual Meeting of Shareholders of Amazon.com, Inc. (the “Annual Meeting”) will be held at 9:00 a.m., Pacific Time, on Tuesday, May 17, 2005 in the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall, 200 University Street, Seattle, Washington, 98101, for the following purposes:

 

1. To elect eight Directors to serve until the next Annual Meeting of Shareholders and until their respective successors are elected and qualified;

 

2. To ratify the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2005;

 

3. To consider and act upon a shareholder proposal regarding the voting standard for election of Directors, if properly presented at the Annual Meeting; and

 

4. To transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof.

 

Our Board of Directors recommends you vote “FOR” the election of each of the nominees to the Board, “FOR” the ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as independent auditors, and “AGAINST” the shareholder proposal.

 

The Board of Directors has fixed April 1, 2005 as the record date for determining shareholders entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the Annual Meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof. Only shareholders of record at the close of business on that date will be entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Annual Meeting.

 

All shareholders are invited to attend the Annual Meeting in person. However, even if you expect to be present at the Annual Meeting, we ask that as promptly as possible you either vote via the Internet or by telephone by following the instructions on your proxy card, or mark, sign, date, and return the enclosed proxy card in the postage-paid envelope provided. Shareholders attending the Annual Meeting may vote in person even if they have previously voted. If you are unable to attend the Annual Meeting in person, you can listen to the webcast live, or on replay, by visiting www.amazon.com/ir.
