    • It's fairly self-evident that Fortress Investment (FIG +5.9%) buying back the 12% stake in the company held by Nomura (NMR) at a 25% discount to last night's close is a good deal for Fortress, but RBC's Bulent Ozcan takes the time to write up his own thumbs up on the deal.
    • He notes Nomura - a strategic shareholder - had purchased 55M shares for $888M prior to Fortress going public at the peak in 2007. Nomura subsequently added a small amount to its stake in 2009. Ozcan estimates Nomura's weighted-average price at around $15 per share (it sold for $6).
    • The deal, says Ozcan, removes an overhang on Fortress' stock, as the company will no longer have to pay Nomura a dividend on that 12% stake, paving the way for higher distributions for remaining shareholders. How much of an overhang it was remains to be seen as the stock has been a 10-bagger since the 2009 lows.

    Nomura Holdings (NMR +4%) shares are surging today on a WSJ report that it’s planning to cut costs by $1B next fiscal year, in the first indication of how Japan's biggest brokerage is changing course under new management. The cuts come after another $1B in cost reductions in its wholesale business implemented earlier this year.

    Nomura Holdings (NMR -5.5%) was involved in an insider trading case connected to a 2010 share sale by Inpex, Bloomberg reports. Japan's securities regulator says Chuo Mitsui Asset Trust & Banking got non-public information from an employee of one of the lead underwriters on Inpex's offering; Nomura was one of the underwriters.

    Nomura (NMR) tumbles to a near 4-decade low in Tokyo as the Olympus scandal blows higher, even as there is nothing directly linking the brokerage with the shenanigans at that firm. Nomura is heavily exposed to Europe, but that's not news as the company reported a loss last week due to its sovereign holdings there. Shares -12.8% premarket.
