The valuation gain calculated by comparing the book value of the stake to the market value reached a record ¥4.81 trillion ($39 billion) as of March 31, based on data the central bank issued last week. The profit compares with Facebook Inc. founder Zuckerberg’s $35 billion net worth, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
