Nishimura & Asahi is advising Japanese investment company SBI Holdings on its 154 billion yen ($1.12 billion) takeover bid for its unit SBI Shinsei Bank, which is being represented by Anderson Mori & Tomotsune.

With this bid, SBI Holdings aims to buy an additional 27 percent shares in Shinsei Bank, Nikkei reported, adding that SBI Holdings aims to delist Shinsei Bank to focus on repayment of Sninsei’s 350-billion-yen government loan it borrowed after Japan’s bubble economy burst in the 1990s.
