DETROIT, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ally Financial Inc. (Ally) today announced it has repaid $2.9 billion in debt issued under the FDIC's Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Program (TLGP). The company issued this debt on Oct. 30, 2009 with a maturity date of Oct. 30, 2012.
"The TLGP enabled Ally to access another source of liquidity during a time when there were limited options for financial institutions. This liquidity was a key contributor in Ally being able to continue offering financing options for thousands of auto dealers across the U.S. and millions of their customers during the financial crisis," said Ally Senior Executive Vice President of Finance and Corporate Planning Jeffrey Brown. "Ally continues to make significant progress in executing our strategic plans, and the announcements we have made in recent weeks will further enable us to repay the assistance from government programs."
The final Ally debt issuance guaranteed under the TLGP will be repaid in December 2012 and totals $4.5 billion.
