Jos. A. Bank rejects Men's Wearhouse acquisition proposal

Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Inc. responded to the non-binding acquisition proposal it received on November 26, 2013, from The Men's Wearhouse, Inc..

The Company said that after thorough consideration by its Board of Directors, with the assistance of its financial and legal advisors, it has unanimously rejected the proposal made by Men's Wearhouse.

The Company's Board of Directors concluded that the price proposed by Men's Wearhouse significantly undervalued the Company and its near and long-term potential and was not in the best interest of the Company's shareholders.

Further, as the Company has said previously, it is reviewing all alternatives regarding potential strategic acquisition opportunities that would enable the Company to drive significant value for shareholders.

Robert N. Wildrick, Chairman of Jos. A. Bank, said, "Our Board undertook a thorough review and determined that the per share consideration in the proposal made to us by Men's Wearhouse was simply not in the best interest of our shareholders.

"At the same time, we continue to review acquisition opportunities that would represent a strong strategic fit with our Company and provide an opportunity to leverage our core competencies to drive meaningful growth, synergies and substantial value creation over the long term."
