GMAC Financial Services which controls the nation's fifth largest residential servicer says it's "business as usual" at the company even though one of its owners, General Motors, filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday.
A GMAC spokeswoman stressed that "we have no intention of filing for bankruptcy," adding that GM owns only 10% of the financial services company. GMAC is a bank holding company that a few months ago completed a large restructuring with its bondholders.
Hedge fund giant Cerberus Capital owns 22% of GMAC with the U.S. Treasury owning a large piece as well because of a $5 billion TARP investment. Asked if GM might sell its stake in GMAC, the spokeswoman declined to comment.
