GM massively pares stake in Suzuki

General Motors has reduced its stake in Suzuki Motor Corporation from 20.4-percent to just 3.0-percent, all but severing 25-year-old ties with the Japanese automaker.

The cash freed up by selling 92.36 million shares (about 17.4-percent of Suzuki’s outstanding stock) should give the General pre-tax profits on the order of $650 million, critical cash for the company’s capital-intensive turnaround efforts.
