NEW YORK (AP) — Houston-based Men’s Wearhouse says it won’t give Jos. A Bank access to nonpublic information that it could use to assess whether to potentially raise its $2.3 billion buyout offer or not.

On Thursday, Jos. A Bank Clothiers Inc. said it would consider boosting its bid if allowed access to nonpublic information. The Hampstead, Md., company also said it would drop its offer in two weeks if there continued to be no discussions on the proposal.

On Monday, Men’s Wearhouse Inc. said its board met with external financial and legal advisers and determined it wasn’t in its shareholders’ best interest to give Jos. A Bank access to the information. Men’s Wearhouse maintains that Jos. A. Bank’s $48 per share offer significantly undervalues its business.
