Jos. a Bank Clothiers Inc. Announces Strong Fourth Quarter Sales and Increased Projected Earnings

BusinessWire, Tuesday, February 09, 1999 at 09:07

HAMPSTEAD, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9, 1999--Jos. A. Bank
Clothiers Inc. (NASDAQ:JOSB) announced sales for the fourth quarter
and year ended Jan. 30, 1999 (fiscal 1998) and a revision of
projected fourth quarter earnings.
Jos. A. Bank's total sales for the fourth quarter of 1998
increased 9.1 percent, to $57.2 million, compared to $52.5 million in
1997. Total sales for the year ended Jan. 30, 1999 increased 8.7
percent to $187.2 million in 1998 compared to $172.2 million in 1997.
Comparable store sales for 1998 were even for each period which
is on top of comparable increases of 5.6 percent and 4.1 percent,
respectively, for the fourth quarter and full year of 1997. During
1998 the Company opened 17 new stores in existing markets which has
temporarily slowed comparable store growth. Sales from these stores
are not included in comparable store sales.
Jos. A. Bank has opened 32 stores in the past two and one-half
years to increase its store base to 104. The Company expects to open
12 to 15 more stores in each of the next two years.
Timothy F. Finley, chairman and CEO said, "We are delighted with
our strong sales results for the year which exceeded our expectations.
These strong sales results coupled with the strength of our regular
priced merchandise resulted in significantly less inventory available
for clearance. Consequently, we are estimating our fourth quarter
earnings to be in the range of $.30 to $.32.
"This compares to the investment communities consensus estimate
of $.27 for the fourth quarter."
The company's statements concerning future operations contained
in this press release are forward-looking statements within the
meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
Actual results may differ materially from those forecast due to a
variety of factors that can adversely affect the Company's operating
results, liquidity and financial condition such as risks associated
with economic, weather and other factors affecting consumer spending,
the mix of goods sold, pricing, availability of lease sites for new
stores and other competitive factors.
The Company will announce its fourth quarter earnings on March 2,
1999.
Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc., established in 1905, is a provider
of classic, traditional tailored and casual clothing with 104 stores
in 28 states and the District of Columbia, a nationwide catalog and an
Internet web site (www.josbank.com). Jos. A. Bank Clothiers is
headquartered in Hampstead.

REMEMBER BAMM ? SKYM ?
It took a few days for BAMM to hit a HIGH HIGH after news came out. The difference with BAMM and JOSB is that JOSB is expanding, and I feel a better company. I'm no pro but I like what I have heard about JOSB. Now ,with them putting the word out, JOSB will be better known and investors will take a hard look at them.
GOOD LUCK to all,
Ken

JOSB - June '02 Worth Magazine Article

Net Worth Opener

By Ted C. Fishman

<<It may be time to invest in style: Buy a classic Cary Grant suit from Oxxford or buy stock in companies such as Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank.>>

<<Investors may be less interested in the two companies' fashions than in their comparative growth rates. The analyst community expects Men's Wearhouse to earn $1.30 a share in fiscal 2002, up 25 percent from 2001, on revenue of $1.36 billion. Jos. A. Bank, which caters to a slightly better-heeled clientele, earned $6.5 million on sales of $211 million in fiscal 2001, and analyst Michael Via of Anderson & Strudwick, in Richmond, Virginia, expects earnings per share to climb about 13 percent this year, to $1.19. Even in the sluggish last quarter of 2001, Jos. A. Bank reported a 46 percent increase in earnings over the last quarter of 2000. With 140 stores, "we are now where the Gap was 10 years ago," CEO Robert Wildrick says, with considerable hyperbole. "We'll open 20 stores this year, and there is no reason we can't have 500." Slobs of America, you have been warned.>>
