08:11 EDTGMAlly CEO exploring subprime lending, sees loss of GM business, Detroit News says
Ally (ALLY) CEO Jeffrey Brown stated in a Thursday interview with The Detroit News that the company may return to offering credit cards and home mortgages, and currently plans to expand auto lending to subprime customers. The CEO said he expects to decide within 30-60 days whether Ally will consolidate its five locations to a single headquarters in the Detroit suburbs. Brown added that he expects GM (GM) to shift its $4.1B subsidized leasing program for Chevrolet from Ally to GM Financial, which the Ally CEO wants to offset by increasing subprime lending from 9% of total lending to 12%-15%.
