    More ‘fallen angels’ could cause big ripples in bond market

    General Motors’ top-quality credit rating in May 2005, sending $41.5bn of debt crashing into junk territory and creating the largest ever “fallen angel”, it triggered the biggest sell-off in corporate bond markets since the dotcom bust. Along with the simultaneous downgrade of Ford, which remains the second-largest fallen angel after its $40.8bn of debt was docked, the bedrock of corporate America shook. “It is not just they that have a problem,” Gary Jenkins, a credit strategist at Deutsche Bank, said at the time.

    Trump budget targets loan program that could help Lordstown

    The Trump administration’s budget proposal scraps a loan program that could help an upstart electric vehicle company’s plans to reuse the now-closed General Motors factory in Lordstown, Ohio. In a summary of the budget for the coming fiscal year, the administration said Monday it wants to eliminate the Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program, which was created in 2007 to foster development of fuel-efficient vehicles. Lordstown Motors Corp., a new venture that’s trying to reopen the former Lordstown GM factory east of Cleveland to build electric trucks, is considering asking for a $200 million from the loan fund.

    Australian PM 'angry' at General Motors decision

    Morrison added that Australian taxpayers put billions into this multinational company. "They let the brand just wither away on their watch," he told reporters in Melbourne. Like Britain, Australia and New Zealand are right-hand drive markets. With sales of GM's Australian Holden brand plummeting, the company could not justify the investment to continue building right-hand drive vehicles. "Tax payers were giving a multi-national extra money, year after year, and at the end of the day they walked away. And I think that says everything you need to know about the success of those sorts of policies," said Morrison.

    GM to retire iconic Australian Holden brand

    US car giant General Motors is scaling back its operations from unprofitable markets, outside of the United States and the latest car brand to be axed is Australia's Holden brand. GM International Senior Vice President, Julian Blissett made the announcement on Monday. (SOUNDBITE) (English) GM INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, JULIAN BLISSETT, SAYING: "And I can confirm to you that GM has taken the very difficult decision to wind down Holden operations in Australia and New Zealand by 2021. This was an agonising decision for us and one that we didn't make lightly or easily. The wind down will take place through this year and will impact all functions with the exception of aftersales." The first Holden car rolled off the production line in 1948 and in its heyday the company employed thousands. But it ceased production three years ago and cut jobs to around 600. For many the news was an emotional moment and Australia's industry minister Karen Andrews captured the mood with her own story: (SOUNDBITE) (English) MINISTER FOR INDUSTRY, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, KAREN ANDREWS, SAYING: "My first car was a Holden Torana that I bought from from grandfather, so like many Australians Holden has a place in my personal history and Holden is a manufacturer, it is a vehicle that is near and dear to many Australian hearts. So it's disappointing that this is the end of an era." GM also announced that China's Great Wall Motors will buy its Thailand car manufacturing plant. GM says the restructuring of its global business will produce profit margins and represent a "$2 billion" improvement from two years ago. Back in Australia -the news was hard for the government to swallow. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MINISTER FOR INDUSTRY, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, KAREN ANDREWS, SAYING: "It was only a couple of hours ago that the government was advised that Holden was walking away from Australia and Australians. This is a very disappointing outcome, it's disappointing because there will be several hundred workers that are about to lose their jobs because of this decision." GM said they would continue to support existing Holden customers with spare parts, servicing for at least the next 10 years.
