Cash out of $ 400 million! Ex-bezos sells part of Amazon stock

Netease Technology News on January 28, according to foreign media reports, Mackenzie Bezos, the former wife of Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, is promising to charity After donating billions of dollars of property, the company recently sold $ 400 million worth of company stock.

In a year-end filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bezos claims that it can exercise the sole voting right on nearly 19.5 million Amazon shares, but has no disposal rights, which is comparable to the Amazon shares held by Mackenzie. .

The latest data shows that by the end of last year, Mackenzie held 19.5 million shares of Amazon stock, which is about 200,000 less than the 19.7 million shares she expected to receive when she divorced. At current share prices, these 200,000 shares are equivalent to $ 400 million.

Even after selling this part of the stock, Mackenzie’s Amazon stock is still worth close to $ 36 billion, making her one of the top billionaires in the world.

There are no signs of how McKenzie will use the stock to monetize her earnings, but shortly after the divorce, she said that she had signed a “donation oath” and promised to donate half of her property to charity.
