OMAHA, Neb., Apr 29, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- There has been some misreporting regarding the timing of Berkshire's first quarter earnings release. Berkshire was never scheduled to release earnings this week. Berkshire has consistently followed a policy of releasing its interim earnings and posting its quarterly financial statements on the Internet on a Friday afternoon within 40 days following the end of the calendar quarter (the latest date we are allowed to file Form 10-Q with the SEC). Depending on how the calendar falls this can be the first or second Friday of the second month following the quarter end. Accordingly, this year, we will be releasing earnings and posting our quarterly financial statements on the Internet on Friday May 8, 2009.
Berkshire Hathaway and its subsidiaries engage in diverse business activities including property and casualty insurance and reinsurance, utilities and energy, finance, manufacturing, retailing and services. Common stock of the company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, trading symbols BRK.A and BRK.B.
