  • Men's Wearhouse Beats Expectations 0 comments
    Jun 6, 2014 10:21 AM | about stocks: MW, JOSB

    Originally published at www.seclive.com

    The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. (NYSE:MW) announced its financial results for the first fiscal quarter of 2014, posting results that beat analyst expectations. The Federal Trade Commission just last week approved the $1.8B acquisition of Jos. A Bank Clothiers (NASDAQ:JOSB), stating that the deal is unlikely to harm consumers, resulting in antitrust clearance. The company's earnings fell 50% from $33.1M and $0.65 per share in the year-ago quarter to $16.5M and $0.34 per share, while adjusted earnings increased from $0.65 to $0.69 per share. Net sales increased 2.3% to $630.5M while comparable-store sales increased 2.9% during the quarter. Once completed, the acquisition of Jos. A Bank will result in a company employing 23,000 people in more than 1,700 stores across the country with estimated sales of $3.5B.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
