In responding to the due diligence request, the Board noted its determination that the highly-conditional Jos. A. Bank $48.00 per share proposal significantly undervalues Men's Wearhouse.
Douglas S. Ewert, President, Chief Executive Officer and a director of Men's Wearhouse said: "Our Board and management team are committed to creating value for our shareholders. We are enthusiastic about Men's Wearhouse's prospects and are confident that our strategic plan will deliver more value to our shareholders than Jos. A. Bank's inadequate, highly conditional proposal. We thank our shareholders for the support we have received."
The Men's Wearhouse Board, in consultation with its financial and legal advisors, previously evaluated and rejected an unsolicited, highly-conditional and non-binding proposal from Jos. A. Bank to acquire Men's Wearhouse for $48.00 per share in cash, subject to substantial debt and equity financing, due diligence and regulatory approval.
The Men's Wearhouse Board concluded that the proposal significantly undervalued Men's Wearhouse and its strong prospects for continued growth and value creation, and was not in the best interests of Men's Wearhouse or its shareholders.
BofA Merrill Lynch and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC are serving as financial advisors to Men's Wearhouse, and Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP is serving as legal advisor.
