Now that we have a ratified contract and a clear path forward that includes greater operating investment efficiencies, we can resume returning capital to shareholders per our plan, GM CEO Mary Barra, via investor conference call.

Our cash balance, which is well above our target, is a function of our recent record profits and our prudent management of resources through the pandemic, supply chain disruptions and labor negotiations, GM CEO Mary Barra, via investor conference call.

At the time of the investor call, shares were close to $28, which is 15% less than the company's IPO price in 2010
