For all the fireworks that accompany many transactions, it's a little sad that they almost always end with a whimper. The same was true of the Men's Wearhouse/JOSB transaction. That particular deal was the center of quite a bit of back and forth all of last year. Public letters back and forth, hostile offers, pills, litigation, etc. But, like so many other deals, that deal closed yesterday with almost no fanfare. Just a lonely associate somewhere submitting a filing.
