We Have The Agreement Of (20% Of) The Unsecured Debtholders!

In the latest GM clusterfuck drama, the Wall Street Journal flashes the pressing news that a group of unsecured GM noteholders has agreed to the latest 10% debt for equity swap amusement. Outstanding work guys and gals! How many votes have you got in the bag?

We have been informed by the advisors to the unofficial committee of unsecured GM Noteholders, Houlihan Lokey Howard & Zukin Capital, Inc. (financial advisors) and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP (legal counsel), that the unofficial committee and other large Noteholders (who collectively hold approximately 20% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes) support the economic terms of the Proposal. (emphasis added)

Oh. Need we point out that this appears to suggest you have failed to obtain agreement from 80% of the unsecured debtholders? So, do the ad hoc and the official credit committee agree? Any news on secured debt holders. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
Maybe we were a bit quick ordering the Presidential Suite for the weekend.
