The article reports that automobile suppliers and their industry associations in the U.S. have pleaded for a federal bailout of up to 10 billion dollar to prevent bankruptcies and liquidations. Their pleas have come after the steep production cuts by General Motors Corp., Chrysler Corp., and other auto makers. It is stated that the relatively few large-scale bankruptcies filed by suppliers mostly have been financial restructuring rather than liquidations.
