GENERAL MOTORS COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS




Note 1. Nature of Operations

General Motors Company, is sometimes referred to in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as “we,” “our,” “us,” “ourselves,” the “Company,” “General Motors,” or “GM.” General Motors Corporation is sometimes referred to in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, for the periods on or before July 9, 2009, as “Old GM.” Old GM was renamed Motors Liquidation Company (MLC), which was dissolved on December 15, 2011 and transferred its remaining assets and liabilities to the Motors Liquidation Company GUC Trust (GUC Trust).

We design, build and sell cars, trucks and automobile parts worldwide. We also provide automotive financing services primarily through General Motors Financial Company, Inc. (GM Financial).

We analyze the results of our business through our five segments: GM North America (GMNA), GM Europe (GME), GM International Operations (GMIO), GM South America (GMSA) and GM Financial. Nonsegment operations are classified as Corporate. Corporate includes investments in Ally Financial, Inc. (Ally Financial), certain centrally recorded income and costs, such as interest, income taxes and corporate expenditures and certain nonsegment specific revenues and expenses.

Note 2. Basis of Presentation and Recent Accounting Standards

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for interim financial information. Accordingly they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, composed of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary by management to fairly state our results of operations, financial position and cash flows. The operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the full year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 (2011 Form 10-K) as filed with the SEC.

Use of Estimates in the Preparation of the Financial Statements

The condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP, which requires the use of estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the amounts of assets and liabilities at the reporting date and the amounts of revenue and expenses in the periods presented. We believe that the accounting estimates employed are appropriate and the resulting balances are reasonable; however, due to the inherent uncertainties in making estimates actual results could differ from the original estimates, requiring adjustments to these balances in future periods.

Change in Presentation of Financial Statements

In 2012 we changed the presentation of our condensed consolidated balance sheet, condensed consolidated statements of cash flows and certain footnotes to classify the assets and liabilities of GM Financial as current or non-current and to combine line items which were either of a related nature or not individually material. We have made corresponding reclassifications to the comparable information for all periods presented.

Venezuelan Exchange Regulations

Our Venezuelan subsidiaries utilize the U.S. Dollar as their functional currency because of the hyperinflationary status of the Venezuelan economy. The Venezuelan government has introduced foreign exchange control regulations which make it more difficult to convert Bolivar Fuerte (BsF) to U.S. Dollars. These regulations affect our Venezuelan subsidiaries' ability to pay non-BsF denominated obligations that do not qualify to be processed by the Venezuela currency exchange agency at the official exchange rates.

The aggregate net assets of our Venezuelan subsidiaries at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $596 million and $438 million. At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 other consolidated entities have receivables from our Venezuelan subsidiaries of $482 million and $380 million. The total amounts pending government approval for settlement at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were BsF 2.7 billion (equivalent to $633 million) and BsF 2.3 billion (equivalent to $535 million), for which some requests have been pending from 2007.

Recently Adopted Accounting Principles

In 2012 we adopted the provisions of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income” (ASU 2011-05) that requires presentation of all non-owner changes in equity in one continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. We elected to provide a separate statement of comprehensive income for all periods presented. The amendments in this update do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income (OCI) or when an OCI item must be reclassified to net income. The adoption of ASU 2011-05 did not affect our condensed consolidated statements of financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

ASU 2011-05 was modified in December 2011 by the issuance of ASU 2011-12, “Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05.” This update indefinitely defers certain provisions of ASU 2011-05 that require the disclosure of the amount of reclassifications of items from OCI to net income by component of net income and by component of OCI.

Note 3. Acquisition of Businesses

Acquisition of GMAC South America LLC

In March 2012 we acquired from Ally Financial for cash of $29 million 100% of the outstanding equity interests of GMAC South America LLC whose only asset is GMAC de Venezuela CA (GMAC Venezuela) comprising the business and operations of Ally Financial in Venezuela. This acquisition provides us with a captive finance offering in Venezuela which we believe is important in maintaining market position and will provide continued sources of financing for our Venezuela dealers and customers.

We recorded the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of March 1, 2012, the date we obtained control, and have included GMAC Venezuela's results of operations and cash flows from that date forward. The following table summarizes the amounts recorded in connection with the acquisition of GMAC Venezuela, which are included in our GMSA segment (dollars in millions):

Consideration paid

We determined the excess of net assets acquired over consideration paid was attributable to the measurement differences between the BsF denominated assets and liabilities valued using the official foreign exchange rate, as required by U.S. GAAP, and the enterprise value which has been discounted to reflect the uncertainty surrounding our ability to convert the BsF to U.S. Dollars and the risks of operating in a politically unstable country. The measurement differences do not qualify to be recorded in the

GENERAL MOTORS COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS —— (Continued)

application of the acquisition method of accounting, and we recorded the excess of net assets acquired over the consideration paid as a bargain purchase gain. The bargain purchase gain was recorded in Interest and other non-operating income, net. We did not provide pro forma financial information because we do not believe the information is material.

Acquisition of Additional GM Korea Interests

In March 2011 we completed the acquisition of an additional 6.9% interest in GM Korea Company (GM Korea) for cash of $100 million. The transaction was accounted for as an equity transaction as we retain the controlling financial interest in GM Korea. This transaction reduced our equity attributable to Noncontrolling interests by $134 million and our Accumulated other comprehensive income by $7 million and increased our Capital surplus by $41 million. We now own 77.0% of the outstanding shares of GM Korea.

Note 4. Marketable Securities

We measure the fair value of our marketable securities using a market approach where identical or comparable prices are available, and an income approach in other cases. We obtain the majority of the prices used in this valuation from a pricing service. Our pricing service utilizes industry-standard pricing models that consider various inputs, including benchmark yields, reported trades, broker/dealer quotes, issuer spreads and benchmark securities as well as other relevant economic measures. We conduct an annual review of valuations provided by our pricing service, which includes discussion and analysis of the inputs used by the pricing service to provide prices for the types of securities we hold. These inputs include prices for comparable securities, bid/ask quotes, interest rate yields, and prepayment spreads. Based on our review we believe the prices received from our pricing service are a reliable representation of exit prices.

The following tables summarize information regarding marketable securities (dollars in millions):

We maintained trading securities of $84 million as compensating balances to support letters of credit of $70 million at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011. We have access to these securities in the normal course of business; however, the letters of credit may be withdrawn if the minimum collateral balance is not maintained.

Sales proceeds from investments in marketable securities classified as available-for-sale and sold prior to maturity were $427 million and $117 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

GM Financial determined the fair value of finance receivables using Level 2 and Level 3 inputs within a cash flow model. The Level 3 inputs reflect assumptions regarding expected prepayments, deferrals, delinquencies, recoveries and charge-offs of the loans within the finance receivable portfolio. The cash flow model produces an estimated amortization schedule of the finance receivables which is the basis for the calculation of the series of cash flows that derive the fair value of the portfolio. The series of cash flows are calculated and discounted using a weighted-average cost of capital using unobservable debt and equity percentages, an unobservable cost of equity and an observable cost of debt based on companies with a similar credit rating and maturity and maturity profile as the portfolio. Macroeconomic factors could negatively affect the credit performance of the portfolio and therefore could potentially affect the assumptions used in our cash flow model.

GM Financial purchases finance contracts from automobile dealers without recourse, and accordingly, the dealer has no liability to GM Financial if the consumer defaults on the contract. Finance receivables are collateralized by vehicle titles and GM Financial has the right to repossess the vehicle in the event the consumer defaults on the payment terms of the contract.

At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 the accrual of finance charge income has been suspended on delinquent finance receivables based on contractual amounts due of $350 million and $439 million.

GM Financial reviews its pre-acquisition portfolio for differences between contractual cash flows and the cash flows expected to be collected from its initial investment in the pre-acquisition portfolio to determine if the difference is attributable, at least, in part to credit quality. At March 31, 2012 as a result of improvements in credit performance of the pre-acquisition portfolio, which resulted in an increase of expected cash flows of $167 million, GM Financial transferred the excess non-accretable discount to accretable yield. GM Financial will recognize this excess as finance charge income over the remaining life of the portfolio.

Sales and income of our China JVs are not consolidated into our financial statements; rather, our proportionate share of the earnings of each joint venture is reflected as Equity income, net of tax and gain on disposal of investments.

SGM is a joint venture established in 1997 by Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) (51%) and us (49%). SGM has interests in three other joint ventures in China: SGM Norsom, SGM DY and SGM DYPT. These three joint ventures are jointly held by SGM (50%), SAIC (25%) and us (25%). These four joint ventures are engaged in the production, import, and sale of a comprehensive range of products under the brands of Buick, Chevrolet and Cadillac. SGM also has interests in Shanghai OnStar (20%) and Shanghai Chengxin Used Car (33%).

SGMS is a joint venture established in November 2011 by SAIC (51%) and us (49%) to engage in the sales of the imported brands of Buick, Chevrolet and Cadillac and the sales of automobiles manufactured by SGM.

Sale of New Delphi

In March 2011 we sold our Class A Membership Interests in Delphi Automotive LLP (New Delphi) to New Delphi for $3.8 billion. The Class A Membership Interests sold represented 100% of our direct and indirect interests in New Delphi and 100% of New Delphi's Class A Membership Interests issued and outstanding. The sale terminated any direct and indirect obligation to loan New Delphi up to $500 million under a term loan facility established in October 2009 when New Delphi was created and the Class A Membership Interests were issued. New Delphi had not borrowed under this loan facility. In March 2011 we recorded a gain of $1.6 billion related to the sale in Equity income, net of tax and gain on disposal of investments. Our existing supply contracts with New Delphi were not affected by this transaction.

Investment in HKJV

In March 2011 the fair value of our investment in SAIC GM Investment Limited (HKJV) was determined to be less than its carrying amount. HKJV is our joint venture which controls our automotive operations in India. The loss in value was determined to be other than temporary and, therefore, we recorded an impairment charge of $39 million in the three months ended March 31, 2011. In addition we recorded other charges totaling $67 million related to our investment in the HKJV.

We have provided SAIC Motor Hong Kong Investment Limited (SAIC-HK), a 50% equity holder in HKJV, an option to not participate in future capital injections, which would otherwise be required under certain circumstances. Upon election to exercise the option SAIC-HK would be relieved from providing up to $173 million in future capital injections. The related option liability was $88 million and total unrealized losses were $64 million at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

A Monte Carlo option-pricing model was used to estimate the fair value of the option liability which is a Level 3 measure. The

key inputs into the option pricing model were the expected volatility, risk-free rate, expected term, fair value of HKJV and expected amounts of the future funding requirement. The fair value estimate of the option is most sensitive to the fair value of HKJV, which is unobservable. A discounted cash flow methodology was utilized to estimate the fair value of HKJV. A decrease in the fair value of HKJV will result in an increase in the fair value of the option liability.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS —— (Continued)

We adopted the provisions of ASU 2010-28 "When to Perform Step 2 of the Goodwill Impairment Test for Reporting Units with Zero or Negative Carrying Amounts" (ASU 2010-28) on January 1, 2011 and performed Step 2 of the goodwill impairment testing analysis for our GME reporting unit which had a negative carrying amount resulting in the recognition of a cumulative-effect adjustment to Retained earnings. GME continued to have a negative carrying amount and because it was more likely than not further goodwill impairment existed at March 31, 2012 and 2011 we recorded further Goodwill impairment charges in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

In the three months ended March 31, 2012 we determined that the carrying amount for our GM Korea reporting unit continued to exceed its fair value and that goodwill impairment existed. We recorded a Goodwill impairment charge in the three months ended March 31, 2012 within our GMIO segment.
The following tables summarize the Goodwill impairment charges recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 (dollars in millions):
