Daimler postpones results due to IFRS changeover

German-US carmaker
has been forced to postponing publishing its 2007
first-quarter results as a result of its switch from
Financial Reporting Standards

The company said it will now publish its interim report for the first quarter
of 2007 on 15 May, not on 26 April as was originally planned.

‘This change of date has been caused solely by delays with the preparation of
the financial statements for the year 2006 and with the parallel work for the
IFRS financial statements,’ the company said in a statement.

Daimler-Chrysler was among those compaines allowed by Germany to put off
making the transition to IFRS until 2007 because of its use of US GAAP.
