U.S. automaker General Motors Corp. (GM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) on Thursday said it sold a larger-than-expected stake in its real estate financing unit, as GM seeks to raise cash and pay for massive employee buyouts announced a day earlier.

GM's financing arm, General Motors Acceptance Corp., sold 78 percent of its equity in GMAC Commercial Holding โ€” up from a previous target of 60 percent โ€” in exchange for more than $1.5 billion in cash, GM said.

That translates into $9 billion for GM's cash coffers. Free Capmark hats for everyone!
