FORD ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR DEBT FINANCING

DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 27 – Ford Motor Company [NYSE: F] today announced that it plans to obtain financing totaling approximately $18 billion in order to address near- and medium-term negative operating-related cash flow, to fund its restructuring, and to provide added liquidity to protect against a recession or other unanticipated events.

The financing transactions consist of:

new five-year senior secured revolving credit facility of approximately $8 billion that is intended to replace Ford's existing unsecured credit facilities of $6.3 billion; senior secured term loan of approximately $7 billion; and
unsecured capital market transactions of approximately $3 billion, which may include unsecured notes convertible into Ford common stock.

The size of the individual components of the financing may vary depending on market conditions.

Borrowings under the senior secured revolving and term loan credit facilities will be secured on an equal basis by first-priority liens on principal domestic manufacturing facilities (subject to public debt indenture limitations) and substantially all of the Company’s other domestic automotive assets, certain intellectual property, certain real property, all or a portion of the stock of certain subsidiaries (including Ford Motor Credit Company and Volvo), certain intercompany payables and notes, and up to $4 billion of domestic cash without restriction on its use.

Ford expects these transactions to close prior to December 31, 2006.
