The company's retail segment’s same-store sales increased 1.2% for fiscal year 2018, although comps were down for Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A Bank during the quarter.  

“We attribute the current softness to both the macro-environment as well as the need for us to execute more quickly and effectively on our core growth strategies,” Executive Chairman Dinesh Lathi said in a statement.

On the bright side, the company said it strengthened its balance sheet by reducing total debt by $232 million.
