On February 23, 2006, General Motors Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Issuer”), filed an application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 12(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”)  and Rule 12d2-2(d) thereunder, to withdraw its common stock, $12/3 par value (“Security”), from listing and registration on the Pacific Exchange, Inc. (“PCX”).
The Administrative Committee of the Issuer's Board of Directors (“Board”) approved a resolution on September 9, 2005, to delist the Issuer's Security from listing and registration on PCX. The Issuer stated that the purposes for seeking to delist the Security from PCX are to avoid dual regulatory oversight and dual listing fees. The Security is traded, and will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange, Inc. (“NYSE”). In addition, the Issuer stated in its application that PCX advised the Issuer that the Security will continue to trade on Archipelago Exchange (“ArcaEx”), the trading facility of PCX, under unlisted trading privileges.
The Issuer stated in its application that it has complied with applicable rules of PCX by providing PCX with the required documents governing the withdrawal of securities from listing and registration on PCX. The Issuer's application relates solely to the withdrawal of the Security from listing on PCX and shall not affect its continued listing on NYSE, the Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. (“CHX”), or the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, Inc. (“PHLX”), or its obligation to be registered under Section 12(b) of the Act.
