"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," said Robert Wildrick, chairman of Jos. A. Bank. "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."
