The Treasury Department announced the sale of $811 million worth of General Motors (GM) stock in August, while the Canadian government shed 30 million shares in September.

The government retains an estimated 186 million shares of GM stock, according to the Associated Press. Those remaining shares are only worth $6.77 billion at GM’s current $36.40 stock value, less than half of what is needed to cover the $14.1 billion the company owes the United States.
