No easy path for Jos. A. Bank-Men's Wearhouse merger

  • The spread between Jos. A. Bank's (JOSB +1.5%) share price and the bid from Men's Wearhouse (MW +0.4%) to buy out the retailer is the largest of any pending +$500M deal in the U.S., according to Bloomberg.
  • Analysts think the 6% gap would be attractive for investors if the relationship between the company's execs hadn't soured to the point that Men's Wearhouse might have to take the less certain hostile path to a merger.
