The company's $291 billion in debt has recently been downgraded to below investment grade and it has about $16.5 billion of debt coming due this year (Snide). GM and General Motors Acceptance Corp (GMAC)., the carmaker's finance unit, each have about $23 billion of cash available. In addition, the company had about $50 billion in unused credit facilities at the end of last year. The company must carefully watch its cash and liquidity position and, if need be, raise additional cash. A painful, but obvious opportunity is the sell of GMAC.
