In the first three months, Amazon’s revenue was $143.3 billion, surpassing Wall Street estimates of $142.65 billion. The retail giant’s revenue shot up 13% year-over-year while operating income surged 200% to $15.3 billion. Net income saw the highest increase, tripling from $3.17 billion to $10.4 billion.

CEO Andy Jassy attributed the company’s revenue achievements to its focus on AI, which he says has reaccelerated the growth of Amazon Web Services (AWS), the company’s cloud computing division.
