08:05 EDTGMGM to buy back 200M shares from Treasury for $27.50/share, or $5.5B
General Motors said it will purchase 200M shares of GM common stock held by the U.S. Department of the Treasury for $5.5B, or $27.50 per share. The repurchase price of $27.50 per share represents a 7.9% premium over the closing price on December 18. The share buyback is expected to close by the end of the year. This transaction will be accretive to earnings per share, as GM’s total shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis will be reduced by approximately 11%. In association with this share buyback, GM expects to take a charge of approximately $400M in the fourth quarter, which will be treated as a special item. The share buyback is part of the Treasury’s plan, also announced today, to fully exit its entire holdings of GM stock within 12 to 15 months, subject to market conditions.
