"We are pleased to report another solid sales and earnings performance for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 with sales growth of 21.0% and earnings growth of 19.3%. With this quarter's results, we have achieved earnings growth in 40 of the past 41 quarters when compared to the respective prior year periods, including 22 quarters in a row," stated R. Neal Black, President and CEO of JoS. A. Bank Clothiers, Inc. "The fourth quarter, compared to a very strong performance last year, has started out more slowly than we had planned.

November comparable store sales declined, while our direct segment sales increased, compared to the same period last year. As a result, we have adjusted our December merchandising and marketing plans for stores. We believe our efforts will be effective and appealing to our customers. Therefore we remain cautiously optimistic for the outcome of this year's fourth quarter," continued Mr. Black.

The stock dividend was distributed on August 18, 2010.
