Well, it looks as though the saga of whether auto parts supplier Delphi will drag the General underwater into the inky abyss is getting a bit of a reprieve today. That reprieve is coming to the tune of $3.4 billion in stock buybacks of the broke n' busted auto supplier from Appaloosa Management LP, Cerberus Capital Management LP, Harbringer Capital Partners Master Fund I (no LP!), Merrill Lynch and YouAndUs Securities, LLC. The five companies, in a show of throwing good money after bad, appear to be in support of the Delphi plan to re-emerge from bankruptcy during the second quarter of 2007 and you know, start paying back the money it owes to the banks currently providing a hot capital injection.
