    GM buys additional stake in GMAC

    NEW YORK (AP) -- General Motors Corp. said in a securities and Exchange Commission filing Friday that it used the proceeds of an $884 million Treasury department loan to increase its equity stake in its financing arm to about 60 percent.

    GM had previously held a 49 percent stake in GMAC LLC, with the remaining 51 percent held by New York-based private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP.

    As part of the federal bailout for GMAC approved late last year, the financing company received $5 billion from the government's $700 billion bank rescue package.

    In addition, Treasury also said it would lend GM up to $1 billion so that the automaker could buy additional equity offered by GMAC as part of its effort to raise more capital.

    The help came after the Federal Reserve approved GMAC's application to become a bank holding company, making it eligible for a piece of the bank bailout. As part of that deal, GM agreed to reduce its stake to less than 10 percent of the voting and total equity interest of GMAC.
