Amazon And Walmart Face Problems With Their India E-Commerce Businesses

AMZN's investment in India has very low revenue contribution and high impact on operating margins. In comparison, WMT's FPKT is slightly better. Neither operation has turned a profit yet. AMZN and WMT indicate this is due to "challenging regulatory landscape", which is only partially true. There may have been exacerbating due diligence lapses. Litigants against both companies allege that these lapses have been going on for very long, which is problematic for continued "business as usual". Interestingly, trends indicate that exiting India e-commerce altogether would deliver very attractive boosts to stock performance to both parent companies in different contexts.
