The company declined to say how many of the vehicles have been sent to Amazon delivery contractors, or where they would be deployed.
Bank lenders for high-quality US companies are taking different refinancing avenues as they seek to extend maturities on billions of US dollars in loans at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has made liquidity a top priority. Corporations that historically kept their credit agreements intact while extending maturities are now making significant changes to the loan documents accepting risk-mitigating concessions on pricing, terms and the loans’ longevity, while others seem exempt from the new requirements.

Shopping online is hitting it big, and e-commerce platform Etsy (NASDAQ: ETSY) is finally positioned to take advantage of the wave. Prior to a massive restructuring in 2017, the company was falling deeper and deeper into the red, pressured by ballooning costs and big-name competitors like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY).

The department store business model can't break out of the long and slow death spiral it's been stuck in, especially as the world pivots to digital sales and renders many real estate-heavy operations redundant.
