  • Company executive Neil Lindsay told staff that Amazon Care, which lets business customers offer digital or at-home doctors' visits to their personnel, had shortcomings despite the retailer's efforts

KKR & Co Inc (KKR):
  • Australia's Ramsay Health Care said it received a "meaningfully inferior" alternate proposal from a group led by KKR that would allow it to retain a 37% stake in its Paris-based unit Ramsay Generale De Sante
  • Under the alternate bid, Ramsay shareholders would be entitled to receive the full A$88 per share offer for the first 5,000 shares
  • After that, the consideration would be split into A$78.20 per share and 0.22 Ramsay Sante shares
  • That implies a value of A$84.93 per share for holdings in excess of 5,000 shares excluding any dividends, the company said

  • The vaccine, RSVpreF, was also found to be well-tolerated with no safety concerns in the study

Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CM):
  • The company beat analysts' estimates for third-quarter profit, which declined from a year earlier as higher expenses and provisions for credit losses outweighed strong lending growth, and as capital markets earnings fell
  • Net income, excluding one-off items, fell to C$1.85 per share for the three months ended July 31 from C$1.96 a year earlier
  • While total revenue rose 10%, with increases in both interest and trading income, expenses also climbed 10% on an adjusted basis, due to strategic initiatives and inflation

  • The bank reported an overall net profit of C$1.78 per share, compared with C$1.88 a year earlier
Nvidia Corp (NVDA):
  • The graphics chip designer on Wednesday forecast a sharp drop in revenue in the current quarter on the back of a weaker gaming industry
  • The company said it expected third quarter revenue of $5.90 billion, down 17% on year, but said the declines would be partially offset by growth in the data center and automotive business

  • Its gaming division posted revenue of $2.04 billion, down 33% year on year
  • Data center revenue held up at $3.81 billion, up 61% year on year

  • The company on Wednesday cut its annual revenue and profit forecasts over "measured" spending from clients and a hit from a stronger dollar
  • Salesforce also announced stock repurchase of up to $10 billion, its first-ever buyback, while warning of challenges in North America and major European markets for some of its products
