Japanese group Yagi Tsusho has entered into the capital of the French hair accessories maker.

PARIS – The Alexandre de Paris hair accessories brand has a new shareholder: Yagi Tsusho group of Japan.

Vendis Capital on Tuesday said that it will transfer its interest in the Bailly group, in which the private equity firm had invested during 2013 to support the purchase of Alexandre de Paris. Its stake was around 50 percent.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

With Vendis, Bailly group — Alexandre de Paris’ exclusive licensee — ramped up the development of the brand’s distribution in Asia and continued its expansion elsewhere abroad.
