The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. Research Report

On June 25, 2013, The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. (Men's Wearhouse) provided further
comments regarding the termination of George Zimmer as Executive Chairman on
June 19, 2013. The Board stated, "Our actions were not taken to hurt George
Zimmer. Rather we were focused on what we believed to be in the best interests
of Men's Wearhouse, as well as shareholders and employees. While Mr. Zimmer
owns 3 ½% of the stock, it is our obligation to represent the interests of all
shareholders. "Mr. Zimmer had difficulty accepting the fact that Men's
Wearhouse is a public company with an independent Board of Directors and that
he has not been the Chief Executive Officer for two years. He advocated for
significant changes that would enable him to regain control, but ultimately he
was unable to convince any of the Board members or senior executives that his
positions were in the best interests of employees, shareholders or the
company's future." The Board stated that the best course of action was to
reaffirm its support for its CEO Doug Ewert, the senior management team, the
shareholders, and the employees of the Company. The Full Research Report on
