In late November, an announcement was made showing just how excited potential buyers are for the re-entry of General Motors back into the market.

According to an article with the Detroit Free Press, one man bought 1% of General Motors. The article shares, “Saudi billionaire Price Alwaleed bin Talal said he now holds 1% of General Motors, for which he paid $500 million.”

Kingdom Holding is Alwaleed’s investment firm. The firm claims Alwaleed’s decision, “…was based on GM’s brand strength and growth prospects in China and Brazil.”
