ResCap Bonds Rise After Report Ally Rules Out Bankruptcy

Jan. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Residential Capital LLC’s bonds rose after a report that Ally Financial Inc. won’t put the mortgage-lending unit into bankruptcy.

ResCap’s $2.12 billion of 9.625 percent notes due in May 2015 climbed 5.5 cents to 76 cents on the dollar at 10:31 a.m. in New York, according to Trace, the bond-price reporting system of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. That’s about the highest level since Nov. 8, before Ally was reported to have hired advisers to weigh options for the unit.

Ally, the former financing arm of automaker General Motors Corp., won’t put ResCap into bankruptcy because of the risk of lawsuits by creditors, the New York Post reported, citing sources it didn’t identify.

“The report is speculative and we decline to comment on speculation,” Gina Proia, a spokeswoman for Detroit-based Ally, said in an e-mail.
