In November 2012, Ally reached an agreement to sell the International Operations to GM Financial, a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Motors Co.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and is expected to close in stages during 2013. The operations will continue uninterrupted, and it remains business as usual and continues to focus on the customers and clients.
