Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. said it expects adjusted diluted earnings per share of between 47 cents to 49 cents for the third quarter.


That’s compared with year ago adjusted diluted EPS of 47 cents. Excluding the 2 cents to 3 cents in costs connected with its acquisition proposal for The Men’s Wearhouse, diluted EPS is expected at between 49 cents to 51 cents for the quarter ended Nov. 2.


The company reports third quarter results on Dec. 5.


R. Neal Black, president and chief executive officer, said, “We believe we are realizing the benefits of the implementation of our new promotional marketing strategies, which we have been adjusting in recent quarters.”
