Under terms of the agreement and at the buyer's request, GM did not release the buyer's identity or nationality.

However, due to the significant amount of media speculation and reports identifying the buyer, GM and Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co. issued a joint press release in the US yesterday afternoon, announcing Tengzhong as the potential purchaser of HUMMER.

Based in the Chinese province of Sichuan, Tengzhong is a privately owned company and a leading manufacturer of construction and energy industry equipment. It will expand into the premium off-road vehicle segment through what will be a strategic acquisition for Tengzhong and a catalyst for HUMMER's growth in the U.S. and abroad. Tengzhong will keep the HUMMER headquarters and operations based in the US.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of this year and is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals. Financial terms of the agreement will not be disclosed at this time.

Credit Suisse is acting as exclusive financial advisor and Shearman & Sterling is acting as international legal counsel to Tengzhong on this transaction. Citi is acting as financial advisor to GM.

Further details have not been released pending final negotiations.
