For the first time in a very long while, you might say that Delphi is ahead of the curve. At a time when a number of automotive suppliers are finding life tough enough to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, Delphi is finally emerging from its own four-year-old filing.

Delphi's financial savior is a group led by Elliot Management and Silver Point Capital, which has reportedly agreed to forgive $3.4 billion in loans while making a $900 million investment in the new Delphi. Certain bits of the old company were absorbed by General Motors – itself a recent Chapter 11 survivor and the company Delphi was originally spun off from.

The leftover (read: undesirable) portions of the company will be liquidated in a plan that will "allow Delphi to effectively serve its customers by focusing on its core business," according to a statement from GM CEO Fritz Henderson.
