GENERAL MOTORS ISSUES STATEMENT

 DETROIT, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from General Motors (NYSE: GM) on the verdict reached Feb. 4, 1993, in the Moseley Vs. GM trial in Atlanta, Ga.:
 Despite this decision, General Motors remains confident that a full examination by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the technical issues in this matter will bear out our contention that the 1973-1987 full-size pickup trucks do not have a safety-related defect.
 A trial such as this one inevitably is conducted in an emotionally charged atmosphere, involving a family that has suffered a terrible and tragic loss. It is not surprising that jurors sometimes can look past the complicated technical facts and judge large companies on an emotional level in sympathy with the plaintiff.
 Our focus in this trial, just as it has been in our dealings with the NHTSA, has been to have any judgment about the performance of these trucks based on factual, scientific evidence. We intend to pursue every means to demonstrate the validity of GM's position based on the facts.
