General Motors Financial & Pension Troubles

GM Headquarters General Motors has made the financial news many times since it was hit hard during the financial crisis of 2008. It was at this time when GM took a bailout amount of $49.5 billion from the United States Government in exchange for 60% of stock ownership. This however was not enough and GM was forced to file Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. GM battled back and raised $20.1 billion for an IPO in November of 2010 and has continued to increase sales since then.

While GM may have reorganized and restructured much of its organization to accomplish this turnaround, one element that has remained constant are the enormous pension liabilities that were around $100 Billion before the UAW buyout which reduced this obligation to $71B at the end of 2011. The problem with this figure though is that it exceeds General Motors market value meaning that more negotiations and/or buyouts for the pension fund are likely to occur in the future. This however will not happen untill the next labor talks in 2015 according to GM's vice chairman.
