General Motors is currently divesting many of its assets, including GMAC, in order to raise the money necessary for a company reorganization. Kirk Kerkorian, one of GM's investors, prompted this divestiture through his representative on the board of trustees, Jerome York. General Motors announced on March 23, 2006 that it had completed the sale of 78% of the interest in GMAC Commercial Holding, which is the company's real estate subsidiary. This was sold for $1.5 billion in cash to a private investment group comprised of Five Mile Capital Partners, Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. This deal also paid off all of the intra-company debt that was owed to GMAC, which made the total cost of the deal $9 billion. The new entity will be known as Capmark Financial Group, Inc., and GMAC will own a 21% share.

On April 3, 2006, GM announced another sale that related to GMAC. They announced that they would sell 51% of GMAC to a group led by Cerberus Capital Management. This would bring in $14 billion over a 3 year time period. The group will pay GM $7.4 billion in cash when the deal is closed. GM will keep $20 billion in car financing, which will be worth around $4 billion over the course of 3 years.
