From the Paper:

"General Motors Corporation sells automobiles and other related parts and equipment, operates a diverse portfolio of business operations. In fact, it is as much of a finance company as it is a vehicle manufacturer. The most recent annual 10-K filing is for the 2004 financial year providing the relevant data regarding income on operations, net income for the most recent years, as well as a host of other financial related information necessary to complete a financial analysis of the company. The 10-K also contains relevant auditor, internal and external data, as well as the personal signoff of the executive officers committing to the validity of the financial reports forcing them to take a vested interest in the validity of the company's numbers. This last is required by the Sarbaanes-Oxley Act of 2001."
