DETROIT (AP) - General Motors Corp. says its auditors have raised substantial doubt about the company's ability to continue operations.
The troubled automaker revealed the auditors' concerns in its annual report filed on Thursday.
GM has received $13.4 billion in federal loans as it tries to survive the worst auto sales climate in 27 years. It is seeking a total of $30 billion from the government. During the past three years it has piled up $82 billion in losses, including $30.9 billion in 2008.
GM says in its report that its auditors cited recurring losses from operations, stockholders' deficit and an inability to generate enough cash to meet its obligations in raising substantial doubts about its ability to continue as a going concern.
