Abbreviation of company name

Quite often companies do business under a brand name that's constituted of an abbreviation/acronym of the long name of the company; examples:

IBM - Industrial Business Machines
NCR - National Cash Register

AMAG - Automobil- und Motoren AG
AMAG - Austria Metall Aktiengesellschaft

AG is an abbreviation for Aktiengesellschaft, a corporation that's trated in stock.

AMAG is very unlikely to relate to a position title.
