The Treasury Department says it still owns 101.3 million GM shares. It got 912 million shares, a 60.8 percent stake in the company, in exchange for a $49.5 billion bailout of GM in 2009. So far taxpayers have recovered about $36 billion. That means they're still around $13.5 billion in the hole.
To break even, the remaining shares would have to sell for about $133 each. At Thursday's price of $36.95, the government would get about $3.7 billion more. So taxpayers are likely to lose around $10 billion on the deal.
