Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway will not report first-quarter earnings on Friday as expected, said a spokeswoman.

The Omaha, Nebraska-based conglomerate was to have reported the results, ahead of its annual investor meeting that draws thousands of shareholders.

The spokeswoman said no new date had been fixed for the earnings release, and could not give a reason for the delay.
