GM Withdrawing All EU Loan Guarantee Applications

Cites improved financial strength

General Motors' Opel unit said on June 16 that it was withdrawing all applications for loan guarantees from European governments, saying it would fund its planned restructuring itself.

"The validity and reasons for requesting government guarantees have also not changed but the process has proven to be much more complex and longer than anticipated," the firm said.

"GMs recently improved financial strength has also been a catalyst for making this decision."
