General Motors Company
Annual Meeting of Stockholders
Tuesday, June 12, 2012




Dear Stockholder:

With the General Motors Company Annual Meeting of Stockholders approaching, we want to share a couple of updates with you.

A stockholder who gave us notice that he intends to make nominations at the Annual Meeting has informed us that he may contact stockholders to solicit support for his candidates. GM's Board of Directors continues to recommend that you vote IN FAVOR of the individuals described in the proxy statement for the Annual Meeting.

We have recently learned about a related party transaction in 2011 not included in the proxy statement. Pernilla Ammann, the wife of GM's Chief Financial Officer Dan Ammann, is an officer and partner in an advertising agency that received approximately $600,000 for services provided to a GM subsidiary in 2011. This transaction has been properly ratified under our Related Party Transaction Policy, but not all the required procedures were followed.
 
Your vote is important. To vote by mail, telephone or Internet, please follow the instructions we sent you, so that your shares will be represented at the meeting.

Sincerely,

/s/

Anne T. Larin
Secretary
