3.  Termination of Tuxedo Rental License Agreement with Macy's

 

During the first quarter of fiscal 2017, we reached an agreement with Macy's to wind down operations under the tuxedo rental license agreement established between Macy's and The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. ("The Men's Wearhouse") in 2015. The winding down of our tuxedo shops within Macy's was completed in fiscal 2017 and all tuxedo shops within Macy's closed in the second quarter of 2017. 

 

As a result of the agreement, during the first quarter of fiscal 2017, we incurred $17.2 million of termination-related costs, of which $14.6 million were cash charges.  These costs included $12.3 million related to contract termination, $1.4 million of rental product write-offs, $1.2 million of asset impairment charges and $2.3 million of other costs, all of which relate to our retail segment. Of the $17.2 million in termination-related costs, $15.8 million is recorded in SG&A and $1.4 million is included in cost of sales in the condensed consolidated statement of earnings.  All termination-related costs were paid in fiscal 2017.
