Nomura Said to Plan Selling Restaurant Chain Skylark to Bain

Nomura Holdings Inc., Japan’s largest brokerage, plans to sell local family restaurant chain Skylark Co. to Bain Capital LLC, said a person with knowledge of the matter.

Bain is in talks to buy Skylark from Nomura in a deal valued at about 300 billion yen ($3.6 billion) including debt, the Nikkei newspaper reported earlier today, without citing anyone. Nomura spokeswoman Keiko Sugai declined to comment, as did Bain Capital’s Atsushi Kuse.
