Malaysia is one of the few countries in East Asia that has yet to develop a real securitization market, but that could be set to change. Several investment banks are at one stage or another of securitizations in Malaysia with Nomura International the first to make a public announcement that it is working on a deal.

Nomura is working on an "operating company" or "whole business" securitization for a Sarawak-based silicon wafer manufacturer called 1stSilicon. The deal will parcel the revenues of the business, principally sales of wafers, the building blocks of semiconductors, plus all of the company's assets.
