TOKYO -- Berkshire Hathaway, run by billionaire Warren Buffett, will issue yen-denominated bonds for the first time as early as early September as it explores new funding sources outside the U.S., Nikkei has learned.

The issuance could total over 100 billion yen ($939 million) and have a maturity of five years or more, though details have yet to be ironed out. The investment fund is currently researching market demand.
