Nomura Holdings Inc. reported Friday that three of its executives earned more than ¥100 million in remuneration in fiscal 2009.

President Kenichi Watanabe received ¥299 million, including stock options, the largest Japanese securities company said in a report to a regular general meeting of its shareholders.

Executive remuneration including stock options totaled ¥252 million in the year to last March for Deputy President Takumi Shibata and ¥194 million for Chairman Junichi Ujiie, it said.

Nomura Holdings is one of some 400 companies that are listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and held its general shareholders’ meetings Friday.

Executive remuneration has become a focus of attention this year as new government regulations on corporate disclosure require publicly traded companies to provide the names of executives who earn at least ¥100 million a year at shareholders’ meetings.
