Tokyo, April 28, 2023 - Nomura Capital Partners Co., Ltd. (“NCAP”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nomura Holdings, Inc., today announced that it has entered into a capital alliance with Farmers Holdings Co., Ltd. ("Farmers Holdings") through Nomura Capital A1 Investment Limited Partnership, a fund managed by NCAP. The ratio and amount of the investment are undisclosed.
Farmers Holdings is one of the leading dairy farmers in western Japan. The company was established in September 2017 by three co-founders from diverse backgrounds. As of April 2023, the company has over 3,000 dairy cows across multiple ranches in the Tokai, Kinki, Chugoku, and Kyushu regions. Farmers Holdings also produces dairy products in its own factories.

These initiatives have enabled Farmers Holdings to continuously expand its business despite the current challenging business environment. The company is expected to play an increasingly significant role in Japan’s dairy industry.
Under the alliance, NCAP will subscribe to a third-party allotment of shares by Farmers Holdings as well as purchase shares from existing shareholders. In addition to providing capital, NCAP will support the company’s continued growth by leveraging Nomura’s strong group network and deep expertise in the financial services industry.
