The Men's Wearhouse announced that its rights agreement has been amended to accelerate the expiration date to May 5, 2014, effectively terminating the company's shareholder rights plan as of that date. The rights agreement had originally been scheduled to expire on September 30, 2014.
In connection with the expiration of the rights agreement, Men's Wearhouse will be taking routine actions on and prior to the expiration date to voluntarily deregister the related preferred stock purchase rights under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and to delist the preferred stock purchase rights from The New York Stock Exchange.
These actions will have no effect on Men's Wearhouse's common stock, and shareholders will not be required to take any action as a result of expiration of the rights agreement.
