DaimlerChrysler AG says it will delay first-quarter results due to its changeover from generally accepted U.S. accounting principles to international accounting standards.

The auto maker reportedly will release the information on May 15 instead of April 26.

However, the company says it still intends to publish its 2006 consolidated statements, based on International Financial Reporting Standards, on April 26 as planned.

The postponement means DC will be reporting first-quarter results after its annual shareholder meeting April 4 in Berlin.
