USA: Kmart emerges from bankruptcy

Kmart, the largest US retailer ever to file for bankruptcy, emerges from bankruptcy with 600 fewer stores, US$2bn in financing and a new management team. The company also named investor Edward Lampert, head of hedge fund ESL Investments, as chairman of its board of directors.

Kmart said it appointed James Gooch as vice president and treasurer and is still looking for a chief financial officer.
