General Motors has revised its first quarter earnings statement to show a profit of $445 million, rather than the $323 million reported earlier this month. GM says the change is based on conversations the company had with SEC regulators regarding whether or not it could write off the settlement it made with blue collar retirees over health care. The charges will instead be broken out over seven years starting third quarter, when the changes take effect.
