Fox 45 highlights a class discussion in the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business about the recently announced buyout offer by Maryland-based Jos. A. Bank for rival company Men's Wearhouse. Steve Isberg, associate professor of finance, walks the students through the offer, which Wall Street and Men's Wearhouse declared was just too low—this despite the latter company's recent troubles.

Watch the video.

In The Baltimore Sun, Isberg provided further analysis of the proposed deal, saying that it doesn't appear likely to happen.
