Dave & Buster's, Inc. Achieves Record Setting Fiscal Year 2011 Adjusted EBITDA of $98.4 million

DALLAS—April 12, 2012—Dave & Buster's, Inc., a leading operator of high volume entertainment/dining complexes, today announced results for its fiscal year and fourth quarter ended January 29, 2012.

Total revenues increased 6.3% to $144 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $135.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The year-over-year revenue increase was driven by a $1 million increase in comparable store sales and a net $7.5 million increase in revenues from non-comparable stores and other revenue sources. Across all stores, Food and Beverage revenues increased $2.9 million or 4% and Amusements and Other revenues increased $5.6 million or 8.8% compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 7.1% to $29.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 versus $28.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.

Total revenues for the 52-week period increased 3.8% to $541.5 million from $521.5 million for the comparable period last year. This revenue increase was comprised of a 2.2% increase in comparable store sales, and a net $11.6 million increase in revenues from non-comparable stores and other revenue sources. Our positive revenue gains were partially offset by a $2.4 million revenue reduction related to the second quarter 2011 closure of a store in Dallas, Texas. Total Food and Beverage revenues increased $5.1 million or 1.9% and revenues from Amusements and Other increased $14.9 million or 5.9%.

Adjusted EBITDA for the 52-week period increased 14% to $98.4 million versus $86.3 million for the comparable period last year.

"We are extremely pleased with our performance in 2011" said Steve King, Chief Executive Officer. "A return to positive comparable store sales, diligent management of our costs and an outstanding group of new stores combined for our best Adjusted EBITDA year ever."
