RIO DE JANEIRO Jan 14 (Reuters) - Brazil's Petroleo Brasileiro SA expects to release unaudited third-quarter financial results on Jan. 27 after a scheduled meeting of its board of directors, the state-run oil company said Wednesday in a statement.

Petrobras, as the company is known, had previously said it will release the results by the end of January. If the board fails to approve the accounts, the results won't be released, the statement said.

Results have been delayed since November after its auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers failed to certify Petrobras' accounts after a price-fixing, bribery and political kick-back scandal raised questions about the value of its assets. (Reporting by Jeb Blount; Editing by James Dalgleish)
