Item 1.03Bankruptcy or Receivership


As previously reported, on August 2, 2020 (the “Petition Date”), Tailored Brands, Inc. (the “Company”) and certain of its subsidiaries (together with the Company, the “Debtors”) commenced voluntary cases (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The Chapter 11 Cases are being jointly administered under the caption In re: Tailored Brands, Inc., et al., Case No. 20-33900 (MI).


On August 3, 2020, the Company received certain “first day relief” from the Bankruptcy Court that will allow the Company to operate in the ordinary course of business, including the authority to access cash collateral and debtor-in-possession financing, pay employee wages and benefits, honor customer programs and pay vendors and suppliers in the ordinary course for all goods and services provided after the Petition Date.


On August 3, 2020, the Bankruptcy Court also entered the Order Approving Notification and Hearing Procedures for Certain Transfers of and Declarations of Worthlessness with Respect to Common Stock, Docket No. 83 (the “Order”). The Order is designed to assist the Debtors in preserving certain of their tax attributes by establishing, among other things, the procedures (including notice requirements) that certain stockholders and potential stockholders must comply with regarding transfers of, or declarations of worthlessness with respect to, the Company’s common stock, as well as certain obligations with respect to notifying the Debtors with respect to current stock ownership (the “Procedures”). The terms and conditions of the Procedures were immediately effective and enforceable upon entry of the Order by the Bankruptcy Court. Any actions in violation of the Procedures (including the notice requirements) are null and void ab initio, and (a) the person or entity making such a transfer will be required to take remedial actions specified by the Debtors to appropriately reflect that such transfer of the Company’s common stock is null and void ab initio and (b) the person or entity making such a declaration of worthlessness with respect to the Company’s common stock will be required to file an amended tax return revoking such declaration and any related deduction to reflect that such declaration is void ab initio. The foregoing description of the Order is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Order, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 4.1 and is hereby incorporated by reference in this Item 1.03.


Item 3.01Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.


On August 2, 2020, the Company was notified by the staff of NYSE Regulation, Inc. (“NYSE Regulation”) that it had determined to commence proceedings to delist the common stock of the Company from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). NYSE Regulation reached its decision that the Company is no longer suitable for listing pursuant to NYSE Listed Company Manual Section 802.01D after the Company’s disclosure on August 2, 2020 that it has commenced voluntary cases under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The Company does not intend to appeal the determination and, therefore, it is expected that its common stock will be delisted, which would not affect its operations or business and does not change its reporting requirements under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).


Item 3.03Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.


The information set forth above in Item 1.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K regarding the Order Approving Notification and Hearing Procedures for Certain Transfers of and Declarations of Worthlessness with Respect to Common Stock, Docket No. 83, is hereby incorporated by reference in this Item 3.03.


Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


In connection with the Company's receipt of certain “first day relief” described in Item 1.03 above, the Company issued a press release on August 3, 2020, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.


The information disclosed in this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such a filing.
