GM Rating Lifted to Investment Grade by Standard & Poor’s

General Motors Co., five years after emerging from a government-backed bankruptcy, was returned to investment grade by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services.

S&P upgraded the biggest U.S. automaker to BBB- from BB+ today, citing progress in Europe, healthy cash flow and limited reputational and market share damage as a result of the company’s record recalls. The ratings outlook is stable.
