Chairman and CEO Barra met with reporters Tuesday morning ahead of the 9:30 a.m. shareholders gathering. Steering GM to the future could yet be a rocky road. Ford Motor Co.in May ousted its chief executive, Mark Fields, who like Ms. Barra took over in 2014 after a career climbing the ranks. "We do want to unlock the value, but we want to make sure we do it in a way that is going to create long-term value from a company perspective". He congratulated the management team on its latest "win".
GM announced an agreement to sell its European division to PSA Groupe in March for $2.2 billion and said in May it would no longer sell vehicles in India or South Africa.
Ms. Barra said GM continues to look at different structures that could attract growth investors, but also cautioned numerous tech-based pieces of the business are intertwined with GM's broader vehicle-making efforts.
