GM Statement in Response to Greenlight Capital’s Preliminary Proxy Filing
Apr 12, 2017 at 10:15 AM EDT
General Motors presented Greenlight’s Dividend Share idea to the rating agencies fully and fairly. The rating agencies’ public statements issued regarding the Greenlight proposal clearly indicate that they understood the idea in all its facets, and would represent a credit negative if implemented. Any suggestion to the contrary is baseless and irresponsible.
