Nomura shares plummeted by 16% on the Tokyo Stock Exchange this morning after the Japanese financial entity announced million-dollar losses for its US subsidiary. Specifically, the bank reported "an event" related to the transactions of a subsidiary in the United States that could cause a "significant loss." 

The transactions amount to approximately 2 billion dollars, according to the entity that clarifies that the final amount will depend "on the reversal of transactions and fluctuations in market prices" while analyzing "the extent of the possible loss and the impact on its financial results."

Despite the losses, Nomura assures that the incident will not cause problems in its financial strength and that it will report everything "once the impact of the potential loss has been determined."
