OMAHA, Neb. - Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. will not release its first-quarter earnings report this week on the eve of its annual meeting.
In each of the past three years, the Omaha-based company released its quarterly report on the Friday before its shareholder meeting.
This Saturday, the company expects more than 35,000 people to attend the annual meeting to listen to Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger answer questions for more than five hours.
But Berkshire spokeswoman Carrie Kizer said Wednesday the company's earnings report won't be released this week. Kizer says the release date has not been set.
Berkshire owns a diverse mix of more than 60 companies, with major investments in such companies as Wells Fargo & Co. and Coca-Cola Co.Related Links
