One comment so far

Bank regulations and sound banking practices are what keep our banks solvent but not sure this is the time to be doing this kind of acquisition.

I see the name Cerberus and run, myself, but being it is a separate entity to the auto industry, perhaps it has merit. I wonder what the carrot was to buy?
