15.  Legal Matters

 

On March 29, 2016, Peter Makhlouf filed a putative class action lawsuit against the Company and its Chief Executive Officer ("CEO"), Douglas S. Ewert, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas (Case No. 4:16-cv-00838). The complaint attempts to allege claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 on behalf of a putative class of persons who purchased or otherwise acquired the Company's securities between June 18, 2014 and December 9, 2015. In particular, the complaint alleges that the Company and its CEO made certain statements about the Company's acquisition and subsequent integration of Jos. A. Bank that were false and misleading and omitted material facts. We believe that the claims are without merit and intend to defend the lawsuit vigorously. The range of loss, if any, is not reasonably estimable at this time. We do not currently believe, however, that it will have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In addition, we are involved in various routine legal proceedings, including ongoing litigation, incidental to the conduct of our business.  Management does not believe that any of these matters will have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
