Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) — General Motors Co. Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra, who started the job last month, may receive total compensation this year of $14.4 million, $10 million more than the largest U.S. automaker previously disclosed.   Barra, who became the first female CEO of a global carmaker Jan. 15, may receive $10 million in long-term compensation as part of her package, the Detroit-based company said yesterday in a statement. That portion is subject to shareholder approval at GM’s annual meeting in June and the final amount depends on the company’s performance, GM said.

“The company released the full figures ahead of its proxy filing in April to correct misperceptions created by comparisons that used only a portion of Barra’s overall compensation,” GM said in the e-mailed statement.
