No. 6: General Motors – November 19, 2010
Following the devastating effects of the most recent financial crisis, General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) found itself filing for bankruptcy in June of 2009. Financial aid from the US Treasury helped the company get back on its feet, and by November of the following year, General Motors was ready to make its “new” debut on the stock market. In one day, the company raised $15.8 billion, helping it pay half of the loan it had received.
