Along with the letter, Berkshire will disclose its fourth quarter earnings results as well as information regarding its upcoming shareholder meeting scheduled for April 30, a Wednesday news release stated.
Investors will be looking for guidance on how the company plans to leverage its massive cash pile, which totaled more than $149 billion as of the end of the third quarter.
The biggest investment Berkshire has made in recent years has been buying back its own stock. In just the first nine months of last year, Buffett spent more than $20 billion repurchasing Berkshire’s stock, and that likely continued in the fourth quarter.

Buffett could also potentially share additional details on his succession plans. Last May, the 91-year-old billionaire said that vice chairman Greg Abel would take over as chief executive officer when the time came for Buffett to retire.
It's unclear whether Buffett will address Berkshire's recent purchase of Activision before it was acquired by Microsoft for $69 billion.
He recently, in a rare public statement, blasted skeptics who speculated the timing of the purchase, which was made by one of his two investment lieutenants who operate independently of him.

He clarified in a letter posted to Berkshire Hathaway's website that the company had "no prior knowledge" of the Activision-Microsoft deal.
The Omaha, Nebraska-based company currently owns more than 90 businesses across the insurance and reinsurance, utilities and energy, freight rail transportation, manufacturing, retailing and services sectors. Abel currently oversees all of Berkshire's non-insurance businesses.
