Jeff Bezos To Give Away Most Of His Wealth: Reports

Jeff Bezos has promised to give away most of his wealth during his lifetime.

Bezos, who is currently the world’s fourth richest person based on Forbes billionaires list, also admitted that he wants to ensure that the worthiest causes benefits from his charity.

Bezos made the pledge after donating $100 million to the country singer Dolly Parton to give to charities of her choice as part of Bezos’s annual Courage and Civility award.

Without providing further details, Bezos said he and partner journalist-turned-philanthropist Lauren Sánchez were “building the capacity to be able to give away this money”.

Bezos founded e-commerce giant Amazon in 1994 out of his garage in Seattle. He stepped down as CEO to become executive chairman in July 2021. He now owns a bit less than 10% of the company.

He and his wife MacKenzie divorced in 2019 after 25 years of marriage and he transferred a quarter of his then 16% Amazon stake to her. Bezos has donated more than $400 million worth of stock to nonprofits in 2022, though it’s unclear which organizations received those shares.

Bezos owns The Washington Post and Blue Origin, an aerospace company developing rockets.

In the past, Bezos has been heavily criticized for his relative lack of largesse toward charity compared with some fellow billionaires. Bezos is not a signatory to the Giving Pledge, which encourages the world’s wealthiest to give half their net worth to philanthropy and was set up by Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. It has attracted more than 230 signatories including Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

Nordex 9-month Sales Down 2.1%; Tightens FY Operating Margin Outlook

Nordex AG (NRDXF.PK) reported that its sales for first nine months of the 2022 financial year declined 2.1% to 3.87 billion euros from 3.96 billion euros in the prior year.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to minus 200 million euros compared to 101 million euros in the prior year. It was hurt by the persistently strong inflationary environment and supply chain disruption in particular. The latest improving selling prices for new incoming orders will start to have a positive impact after some time next year.

Nordex Group tightened its guidance for the 2022 financial year: the operating margin (EBITDA margin) is now expected to be at the lower end of the guidance range issued on 24 May 2022 at around minus 4 percent. This is mainly due to the current market environment, issues with supply chain reliability and thus project delays.
