The Men's Wearhouse (MW) announced that the Federal Trade Commission has granted termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, applicable to Men's Wearhouse's proposed acquisition of Jos. A. Bank Clothiers (JOSB). As previously announced, Men's Wearhouse and Jos. A.

"Together, Men's Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank will have increased scale and breadth, and Jos. A. Bank's strong brand and complementary business model will broaden our customer reach. Men's Wearhouse shareholders will benefit from approximately $100 to $150 million of run-rate annual synergies realized over three years, through improving purchasing efficiencies, optimizing customer service and marketing practices, and streamlining duplicative corporate functions. Additionally, Men's Wearhouse's vertical direct sourcing model will be leveraged to improve combined merchandising and sourcing across the combined company and rationalize inventory over time. We expect the transaction will be accretive to Men's Wearhouse's earnings in the first full year."

08:00 EDTMWMen's Wearhouse core strength offset by Jos. A. Bank, says Cowen
Cowen said the strength of the core business at Men's Wearhouse was offset by margin pressure in Jos. A. Bank, which has the potential to continue through the remainder of the year. The firm has lowered its expectations due to the pressure and feels the Street's earnings growth rate expectations for 2015 seem optimistic, though Cowen keeps its Outperform rating and $62 price target on the stock.
