LEHMAN BR HOLDINGS : Nomura Wins Bid for LEH's Ops in Asia

Nomura Wins Bid for Lehman's Operations in Asia, FT Says
By Takahiko Hyuga and Steven McPherson

Sept. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Nomura Holdings Inc. agreed to acquire the Asian operations of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., excluding South Korea, the Financial Times reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The Tokyo-based company, Japan's largest securities firm, may also announce today the purchase of some of Lehman's European operations, the report said. Nomura spokesman Shuji Sato declined to comment.

Lehman's demise may allow Nomura President Kenichi Watanabe to restart an overseas push that was rolled back by predecessor Nobuyuki Koga in 2007 as losses on U.S. mortgage investments swelled. Last week's financial-market turmoil reshaped Wall Street and provided Asian and European firms with an opportunity to grab market share in trading, underwriting stock sales and advising companies on takeovers.

Lehman's main units in Japan filed for bankruptcy last week following the parent company's Chapter 11 filing, listing about 4.7 trillion yen of liabilities. The firm negotiated over the weekend with other potential buyers including Barclays Plc and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc., according to two people familiar with the matter.

Barclays, the U.K.'s third-biggest bank, bought Lehman's North American business last week in what Barclays President Robert Diamond called the deal of a ``lifetime.'' Barclays agreed to pay $1.75 billion, including Lehman's New York headquarters and two data centers.

Nomura stopped buying U.S. subprime mortgage loans and repackaging them as securities after losing 31.2 billion yen on the business in the quarter ended June 2007. The firm said the following month it would shut its U.S. residential mortgage business after defaults caused a 73 billion yen loss at the unit.

Watanabe, 55, may be changing course after the worsening credit market meltdown pushed Lehman into bankruptcy and forced Merrill Lynch & Co. to sell itself to Bank of America Corp. Nomura has reported about $2.4 billion of credit losses and writedowns, compared with $13.8 billion at Lehman.
