General Motors Company Research Report

On December 16, 2013, Reuters reported that General Motors Company (GM) has
revealed its intention to invest nearly $1.3 billion at five US plants to make
a new transmission and boost output for a planned new engine as well as add a
vehicle paint shop. According to the report, the said investment at the plants
in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana will create or retain about 1,000 jobs combined,
but did not say how many will be new jobs. The report further stated that the
five plants employ about 7,500 people. Reuters reported that the Company
disclosed the said investment as a part of $8 billion that GM typically spends
annually on its global operations, which will be used to make a new 10-speed
transmission and boost planned output of a new V6 engine, as well as support
production of an existing 6-speed transmission. In line with the said
investment and upgrades, Reuters informed that GM will add a new paint shop
and logistics center. Mark Reuss, GM North American President, said, "Today's
announced plant upgrades continue the momentum of a resurgent auto industry.

Toyota Motor Corporation Research Report

On December 13, 2013, Bloomberg reported that Toyota Motor Corporation
(Toyota) and its lawyers pursuing claims alleging the Company's vehicles
suddenly accelerated, causing deaths or injuries, will begin an "intensive
settlement process" to resolve the lawsuits, as said by a judge. Bloomberg
further reported that an order halting the suits after Toyota and the lawyers
asked for time to try settling the cases was issued by US District Judge James
V. Selna in Santa Ana, California. In his order, Selna said, "Participation in
the intensive settlement process is open to all plaintiffs. Cases that do not
resolve during the initial settlement conference shall be set for a formal
mediation." According to Bloomberg, the move toward settlement comes less than
two months after Toyota lost its first trial in a lawsuit claiming an
electronic defect can cause its vehicles to speed up uncontrollably, and
Toyota settled after an Oklahoma City jury ordered the Company to pay $3
million. Bloomberg further informed that Selna set a hearing for January 14,
2014 for any comment on the said settlement process and stated that settlement
conferences would begin in February 2014. The Full Research Report on Toyota
