Amazon is trying really hard to not let the cat out of the bag.

Splinter News reports the online megastore, worth over $650 billion, is asking competing cities to sign nondisclosure agreements as they negotiate and narrow down bids for their future headquarters. Local news organizations such as the ABC affiliate WRAL and the Atlanta Star-Constitution, have tried and failed to obtain records regarding the ongoing deals in their metropolitan areas.

According to NPR, the 20 potential locations in North America selected in the second round include:

  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Austin, Texas
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Miami, Florida
  • Montgomery County, Maryland
  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Newark, New Jersey
  • New York City, New York
  • Northern Virginia
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Toronto, Ontario
  • Washington D.C.

In fact, some of the first rounds of reports have also been leaving out important information, such as details regarding their offers. For instance, only Boston and Toronto have released information to the public about their deals.
