GM board postpones annual shareholders meeting
DETROIT — General Motors Co. says it has postponed its annual shareholders’ meeting indefinitely.
Company spokesman Tom Wilkinson says the old GM’s board delayed the meeting without setting a new date. It had been scheduled for Aug. 4 in Detroit.
The new GM emerged from bankruptcy protection on Friday but its stock stayed with the old GM, which was renamed Motors Liquidation Co. The new company is 60.8 percent owned by the U.S. government and plans to issue new stock sometime next year.
Wilkinson says he was not told why or when the board made the decision or if a meeting will be held. Six members of the old board will serve on the new company’s 12-member board. Only two of the remaining six members have been appointed.
