The renamed company’s formal announcement Tuesday came just two weeks after its reorganization plan was approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York.

Mulally’s compensation for 2012, including salary and benefits, will be revealed later this year in the company’s proxy statement.
Ford rewarded Mulally with stock worth $58.3 million in March 2012 and $56.6 million a year earlier.
Martha Stewart dispute

Macy’s sued Martha Stewart Living in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan in January 2012 to stop it from proceeding with an agreement announced with J.C. Penney the previous month.
Macy’s says it has an exclusive right to sell Martha Stewart products in categories such as bedding and cookware.
