Automotive Supplier Finance Summit to Convene on October 1-3 in Michigan

Steve Miller, Executive Chairman of Delphi, to Deliver Keynote Address

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 11, 2008) - Robert S. ("Steve") Miller, Executive Chairman of Delphi Corporation, will give the keynote address at the Automotive Supplier Finance Summit on October 2. The Summit will run from October 1-3, 2008 at the Detroit Marriott Hotel located in Troy, Michigan. Miller, author of the book "The Turnaround Kid: What I Learned Rescuing America's Most Troubled Companies," is expected to focus his remarks on the current state of the North American automotive market, with particular emphasis on automotive suppliers.

The Automotive Supplier Finance Summit is an annual gathering place for automotive manufacturing and supplier executives, equity investors, investment bankers, lenders, consultants and restructuring experts. The Summit is designed to create an open dialogue among dealmakers in the automotive supplier market and will feature 38 senior industry executives, lenders, investors and advisors in five roundtable presentations and three case studies sharing their perspectives on how to drive the industry forward.

"The automotive manufacturing and supplier industries, which were already addressing legacy operating costs in North America, are facing additional, unprecedented operating challenges today in the face of abrupt changes in consumer behavior and turbulent capital markets," said Summit co-chair John Wm. ("Jack") Butler, Jr., partner and co-practice leader of the corporate restructuring practice at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. "The positive news for the industry is that leaders in these large companies, their unions and other stakeholders are working more closely together than ever before to craft viable solutions for the future. The Summit brings many of these dealmakers together in one place to share perspectives, find common ground and explore new operating paradigms to efficiently operate in the global automotive industry."
