PARIS — Financial holding group Abcia is making a play to bail out Lejaby, according to an employee for the company, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The terms of the investment could not be obtained.
 
The beleaguered French lingerie firm filed for the French equivalent of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in October with the commercial court in Lyon, France. It has until Dec. 22 to finalize a bailout.
 
Lejaby, which was purchased from Warnaco Group Inc. in 2008 by Austrian firm Palmers Textil AG, is based in Rillieux-la-Pape on the outskirts of Lyon.
 
The company manufactures the Lejaby, Elixir and Rasurel lingerie, corsetry and swimwear brands and also holds the Nina Ricci and Christian Lacroix lingerie licenses.
