Nikkei slides 2.6 pct as Nomura hits financials

TOKYO, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei stock average slid 2.6 percent on Friday, as financial shares were hit hard after Nomura Holdings (8604.T) said it plans to issue up to $5.6 billion in shares, raising concerns other banks could follow suit.

The benchmark Nikkei .N225 lost 278.24 points to 10,265.98, after gaining 1.7 percent the previous day to hit a one-month closing high.

The broader Topix .TOPX fell 2.9 percent to 922.67. (Reporting by Aiko Hayashi)
