Jeff Bezos from Amazon has sold $ 2.8 billion worth of shares of his company last week. This is the total amount after he sold $ 990 million last Thursday and Friday.
This is evident from data published by US SEC stock market regulator. During the first days of August, Bezos already sold shares worth $ 1.8 billion.
Amazon does not want to comment on the reason for the sales. The CEO of the company said earlier that he wanted to sell $ 1 billion worth of shares annually to finance his rocket company Blue Origin. Whether the recent sales are intended for this, has not been officially announced.
