ITEM 9.  Forward Looking Information Relating to Hughes

General Motors Corporation's (GM) subsidiary Hughes Electronics Corporation
(Hughes) filed the following forward looking information on Form 8-K.

                     Hughes Announces Revised guidance for
                        Second Quarter and Full-Year 2001

      El Segundo, Calif., June 11, 2001 -- Hughes Electronics Corporation, a
world-leading provider of digital television entertainment, broadband services,
satellite-based private business networks, and global video and data
broadcasting, announced today that it is issuing new guidance for the second
quarter and full year of 2001.

      "Sales at our national consumer electronics retailers, which are our
primary distribution outlets for DIRECTV Systems, have been slower than we
expected, in large part due to the softening economy," explained Jack A. Shaw,
HUGHES chief executive officer. "In addition, we are seeing continued slowing in
the contribution of subscribers from the rural markets that are served by the
National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative (NRTC). As a result, we expect
that our DIRECTV business in the United States will add fewer net subscribers
than we originally anticipated this quarter, and for the full year.

      "We are also increasing our DIRECTV U.S. EBITDA1 guidance for the quarter
and the full year because the lowered subscriber projections result in lower
subscriber marketing expenses." Shaw continued.

      "To combat the slower retail sales in the United States, we are taking
aggressive steps to strengthen the performance of all of our distribution
partners, who include independent retailers and direct sales, in addition to our
national consumer electronics retailers and Blockbuster. We have implemented a
variety of marketing tactics, including aggressively targeting cable customers
who have experienced large rate increases or poor service. We are also shifting
our advertising and marketing focus to the more than 60 million television
households where DIRECTV offers local channels and is truly a replacement for
cable. In addition, we're adding a lease program through our direct sales
channel, as well as continuing our efforts to reduce churn," Shaw stated. "We
also anticipate positive results from our traditional third quarter offering of
NFL SUNDAY TICKET(TM), - one of our strongest acquisition tools - which we will
begin promoting in early August."

      "In addition, we are adjusting our projections for DIRECTV Latin America
as we place a greater emphasis on reducing churn and attracting long-term
profitable subscribers. As a result, we will be more selective in our pursuit of
new subscribers and have accordingly reduced our current quarter and full-year
subscriber projections. We also expect lower EBITDA losses."

      HUGHES' revised guidance is shown below. No changes were made to the
guidance for PanAmSat and Hughes Network Systems (HNS). HUGHES' complete
guidance is contained on the HUGHES web site at
