Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

(in thousands, except share and per share amounts)

Note 1: Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

Description of Business Dave & Buster’s, Inc., a Missouri corporation, owns, operates and licenses high-volume venues that combine dining and entertainment in North America for both adults and families. Our venues operate under the names “Dave & Buster’s” and “Dave & Buster’s Grand Sports Café.” As of May 5, 2013, there were 61 company-owned locations in the United States and Canada and one franchise location in Canada. On May 31, 2013, our lone franchise store ceased operation as Dave & Buster’s. This change and the associated termination of the related franchise and development agreements are not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations. Dave & Buster’s, Inc. operates its business as one operating and one reportable segment. We operate on a 52 or 53 week fiscal year that ends on the Sunday after the Saturday closest to January 31. Each quarterly period has 13 weeks, except for a 53 week year when the fourth quarter has 14 weeks. Our fiscal year ending February 2, 2014 will consist of 52 weeks. Our fiscal year ended February 3, 2013 consisted of 53 weeks.

Dave & Buster’s, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dave & Buster’s Holdings, Inc. (“D&B Holdings”), a Delaware corporation. D&B Holdings is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dave & Buster’s Entertainment, Inc. (formerly known as Dave & Buster’s Parent, Inc.) (“D&B Entertainment”), a Delaware corporation owned by Oak Hill Capital Partners III, L.P., Oak Hill Capital Management Partners III, L.P. (collectively “Oak Hill”) and certain members of the Board of Directors and management of Dave & Buster’s, Inc.

D&B Entertainment owns no other significant assets or operations other than the ownership of all the common stock of D&B Holdings. D&B Holdings owns no other significant assets or operations other than the ownership of all the common stock of Dave & Buster’s, Inc. References to “Dave & Buster’s,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” are references to Dave & Buster’s, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

Related party transactions From time to time, we temporarily advance funds to D&B Entertainment for payment of expenditures for its corporate purposes. Additionally, we owe D&B Entertainment for certain tax-related matters. We had a net payable of $5,467 and $3,349 as of May 5, 2013 and February 3, 2013, respectively.

Interim financial statements — The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States for interim financial information as prescribed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, these financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods indicated. The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Operating results for the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the year ending February 2, 2014. Our quarterly financial data should be read in conjunction with our Annual Audited Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended February 3, 2013 (including the notes thereto) as contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

The financial statements include our accounts after elimination of all significant intercompany balances and transactions. All dollar amounts are presented in thousands, unless otherwise noted, except share amounts.

Concentration of Credit Risk — Financial instruments which potentially subject us to a concentration of credit risk are cash and cash equivalents. We currently maintain our day-to-day operating cash balances with major financial institutions. At times, our operating cash balances may be in excess of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance limit. From time to time, we invest temporary excess cash in overnight investments with expected minimal volatility, such as money market funds. Although we maintain balances that exceed the FDIC insured limit, we have not experienced any losses related to this balance, and we believe credit risk to be minimal.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements — In July 2012, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2012-02, “Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment”. The revised standard is intended to reduce the cost and complexity of testing indefinite-lived intangible assets other than goodwill for impairment. It allows companies to perform a “qualitative” assessment to determine whether further impairment testing of indefinite-lived intangible assets is necessary, similar in approach to the goodwill impairment test. The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. We review our intangible assets for impairment in our fourth quarter unless circumstances require this analysis to be completed sooner. We do not expect the provisions of ASU No. 2012-02 to have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In February 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-02, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income”, which requires an entity to provide information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component. This guidance requires the disclosure of significant amounts reclassified from each component of accumulated other comprehensive income and the income statement line items affected by the reclassification. ASU No. 2013-02 is effective for the Company prospectively for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012. The adoption of ASU No. 2013-02 did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Senior Secured Credit Facility — Our senior secured credit facility provides (a) a $150,000 term loan facility with a maturity date of June 1, 2016, and (b) a $50,000 revolving credit facility with a maturity date of June 1, 2015. The $50,000 revolving credit facility includes (i) a $20,000 letter of credit sub-facility (ii) a $5,000 swingline sub-facility and (iii) a $1,000 (in US Dollar equivalent) sub-facility available in Canadian dollars to the Company’s Canadian subsidiary. The revolving credit facility will be used to provide financing for general purposes. The Company originally received proceeds on the term loan facility of $148,500, net of a $1,500 discount. The discount is being amortized to interest expense over the life of the term loan facility. As of May 5, 2013, we had no borrowings under the revolving credit facility, borrowings of $145,267 ($144,533, net of discount) under the term facility and $5,670 in letters of credit outstanding. We believe that the carrying amount of our term credit facility approximates its fair value because the interest rates are adjusted regularly based on current market conditions. The interest rate on the term loan facility at May 5, 2013 was 5.5%. The fair value of the Company’s senior secured credit facility was determined to be a Level Two instrument as defined by GAAP.

The interest rates per annum applicable to loans, other than swingline loans, under our senior secured credit facility are set periodically based on, at our option, either (1) the greatest of (a) the defined prime rate in effect, (b) the Federal Funds Effective Rate in effect plus 1 / 2 of 1% and (c) a Eurodollar rate, which is subject to a minimum (or, in the case of the Canadian revolving credit facility, a Canadian prime rate or Canadian cost of funds rate), for one-, two-, three- or six-months (or, if agreed by the applicable lenders, nine or twelve months) or, in relation to the Canadian revolving credit facility, 30-, 60-, 90- or 180-day interest periods chosen by us or our Canadian subsidiary, as applicable in each case (the “Base Rate”), plus an applicable margin percentage between 2.50% and 4.50% or (2) a defined Eurodollar rate plus an applicable margin. Swingline loans bear interest at the Base Rate plus an applicable margin.

On May 13, 2011, the Company executed an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the senior secured credit facility. The Amendment reduced the applicable term loan margins and LIBOR floor used in setting interest rates, as well as limited the Company’s requirement to meet the covenant ratios, as stipulated in the Amendment, until such time as we make a draw on our revolving credit facility or issue letters of credit in excess of $12,000. As of May 5, 2013, we have had no draws on our revolving credit facility and outstanding letters of credit have not exceeded $12,000, and as such we were not required to maintain financial ratios under our senior secured credit facility.

On May 14, 2013, the Company executed a second amendment (the “Second Amendment”) to the senior secured credit facility. The primary modification included in the Second Amendment is a reduction in the applicable term loan margin, which is reduced by 0.75% per annum based on a consolidated leverage ratio greater than or equal to 2.75:1.00. For a consolidated leverage ratio less than 2.75:1.00, the applicable term loan margin will be reduced further by 0.25%. Additionally, the Second Amendment reduced the LIBOR floor used in setting rates by 0.25%.

The senior secured credit facility requires compliance with financial covenants including a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio test and a maximum leverage ratio test. The Company is required to maintain a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.15:1.00 and a maximum leverage ratio of 4.25:1.00 as of May 5, 2013. The financial covenants will become more restrictive over time. The required minimum fixed charge coverage ratio increases annually to a required ratio of 1.30:1.00 in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014 and thereafter. The maximum leverage ratio decreases annually to a required ratio of 3.25:1.00 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and thereafter. In addition, the senior secured credit facility includes negative covenants restricting or limiting D&B Holdings, Dave & Buster’s and its subsidiaries’ ability to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness, pay dividends, make capital expenditures and sell or acquire assets. Virtually all of the Company’s assets are pledged as collateral for the senior secured credit facility.

Our senior secured credit facility also contains certain customary representations and warranties, affirmative covenants and events of default, including: payment defaults, breaches of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, cross-defaults and cross-acceleration to certain indebtedness, certain events of bankruptcy, certain events under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 as amended from time to time (“ERISA”), material judgments, actual or asserted failures of any guarantee or security document supporting the senior secured credit facility to be in full force and effect and a change of control. If an event of default occurs, the lenders under the senior secured credit facility would be entitled to take various actions, including acceleration of amounts due under the senior secured credit facility and all other actions permitted to be taken by a secured creditor.

Funds managed by Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. (the “OHA Funds”) comprise one of twenty-two creditors participating in the term loan portion of our senior secured credit facility. As of May 5, 2013, the OHA Funds held approximately 9.43%, or $13,695, of our total term loan obligation. Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. is an independent investment firm that is not an affiliate of Oak Hill and is not under common control with Oak Hill. Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. and an affiliate of Oak Hill Capital Management, LLC co-manage Oak Hill Special Opportunities Fund, L.P., a private fund. Certain employees of Oak Hill, in their individual capacities, have passive investments in Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. and/or the funds it manages.

Senior notes — Our senior notes are general unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of the Company and mature on June 1, 2018. Interest on the notes is paid semi-annually and accrues at the rate of 11.0% per annum. On or after June 1, 2014, the Company may redeem all, or from time-to-time, a part of the senior notes at redemption prices (expressed as a percentage of principal amount) ranging from 105.5% to 100.0% plus accrued and unpaid interest on the senior notes. As of May 5, 2013, our $200,000 of senior notes had an approximate fair value of $225,800 based on quoted market price. The fair value of the Company’s senior notes was determined to be a Level One instrument as defined by GAAP.

The senior notes restrict the Company’s ability to incur indebtedness, outside of the senior secured credit facility, unless the consolidated coverage ratio exceeds 2.00:1.00 or other financial and operational requirements are met. Additionally, the terms of the senior notes restrict the Company’s ability to make certain payments to affiliated entities. The Company was in compliance with the debt covenants as of May 5, 2013.

Our senior secured credit facility requires us to make mandatory debt prepayments to the extent that we have excess cash flow, as defined by the facility, in any completed fiscal year. During the first quarter of fiscal 2013 we made a $608 debt prepayment based on our fiscal 2012 excess cash flow. The excess cash flow prepayment represented early payment of $375 in principal which was due on April 30, 2013 and $233 in principal which is due on July 30, 2013.

Note 4: Income Taxes

We use the asset/liability method for recording income taxes, which recognizes the amount of current and deferred taxes payable or refundable at the date of the financial statements as a result of all events that are recognized in the financial statements and as measured by the provisions of enacted tax laws. We also recognize liabilities for uncertain income tax positions for those items that meet the “more likely than not” threshold.

In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, at May 5, 2013 we considered whether it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Accordingly, we have established a valuation allowance of $1,160 for deferred tax assets associated with state taxes, foreign taxes and uncertain tax positions as of May 5, 2013. The ultimate realization of our deferred tax assets is dependent on the generation of future taxable income during periods in which temporary differences and carryforwards become deductible.

The calculation of tax liabilities involves significant judgment and evaluation of uncertainties in the interpretation of state tax regulations. As a result, we have established accruals for taxes that may become payable in future years due to audits by tax authorities. Tax accruals are reviewed regularly pursuant to accounting guidance for uncertainty in income taxes. Tax accruals are adjusted as events occur that affect the potential liability for taxes, such as the expiration of statutes of limitations, conclusion of tax audits, identification of additional exposure based on current calculations, identification of new issues, the issuance of statutory or administrative guidance, or rendering of a court decision affecting a particular issue. Accordingly, we may experience significant changes in tax accruals in the future, if or when such events occur.

As of May 5, 2013, we have accrued approximately $588 of unrecognized tax benefits and approximately $301 of penalties and interest. Future recognition of potential interest or penalties, if any, will be recorded as a component of income tax expense. Because of the impact of deferred income tax accounting, $509 of unrecognized tax benefits, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate.

The Company is a member of a consolidated group that includes D&B Entertainment. As of May 5, 2013, the Company owes D&B Entertainment approximately $5,015 of tax-related balances. Included in income tax payable is $2,123, which the Company anticipates paying to D&B Entertainment in fiscal 2013. In fiscal year 2013, we expect to utilize approximately $3,177 of available stand-alone tax credit carryforwards to offset our estimated stand-alone cash tax liability to D&B Entertainment.

Note 5: Commitments and Contingencies

We are subject to certain legal proceedings and claims that arise in the ordinary course of our business. In the opinion of management, based upon consultation with legal counsel, the amount of ultimate liability with respect to such legal proceedings and claims will not materially affect the consolidated results of our operations or our financial condition.

We lease certain property and equipment under various non-cancelable operating leases. Some of the leases include options for renewal or extension on various terms. Most of the leases require us to pay property taxes, insurance, and maintenance of the leased assets. Certain leases also have provisions for additional percentage rentals based on revenues.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (dollars in thousands).

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 3, 2013. Our Annual Report is available on our website at www.daveandbusters.com. Unless otherwise specified, the meanings of all defined terms in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”) are consistent with the meanings of such terms as defined in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. This discussion contains forward-looking statements. Please see “Forward-Looking Statements” in Item 4 for a discussion of the risks, uncertainties, and assumptions relating to our forward-looking statements. All dollar amounts are presented in thousands.

General

We are a leading owner and operator of high-volume venues that combine dining and entertainment in North America for both adults and families. Founded in 1982, the core of our concept is to offer our guest base the opportunity to “Eat Drink Play ®” all in one location, through a full menu of casual dining food items and a full selection of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverage items combined with an extensive assortment of entertainment attractions, including large screen televisions and high quality audio systems providing guests with a venue for watching live sports and other televised events, skill and sports-oriented redemption games, video games, interactive simulators and other traditional games. Our guests are primarily a balanced mix of men and women aged 21 to 39, and we are also an attractive venue for families with children and teenagers. We believe we appeal to a diverse customer base by providing a highly customizable experience in a dynamic and fun setting.

As of May 5, 2013, we owned and operated 61 company-owned locations in 26 states and Canada and one franchise store location in Canada. On May 31, 2013, our lone franchise store ceased operation as Dave & Buster’s. This change and the associated termination of the related franchise and development agreements are not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations. Our stores average 47,000 square feet, range in size between 16,000 and 66,000 square feet and are open seven days a week, with hours of operation typically from 11:30 a.m. to midnight on Sunday through Thursday and 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Corporate history

On June 1, 2010, Dave & Buster’s Entertainment, Inc. (formerly known as Dave & Buster’s Parent, Inc. and originally named Games Acquisition Corp.) (“D&B Entertainment”), a newly-formed Delaware corporation owned by Oak Hill Capital Partners III, L.P. and Oak Hill Capital Management Partners III, L.P. (collectively, the “Oak Hill Funds” and together with their manager, Oak Hill Capital Management, LLC, and its related funds, “Oak Hill Capital Partners”), acquired all of the outstanding common stock (the “Acquisition”) of Dave & Buster’s Holdings, Inc. (“D&B Holdings”) from Wellspring Capital Partners III, L.P. and HBK Main Street Investors L.P. In connection therewith, Games Merger Corp. a newly-formed Missouri corporation and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of D&B Entertainment, merged (the “Merger”) with and into D&B Holdings’ wholly-owned, direct subsidiary, Dave & Buster’s, Inc. (with Dave & Buster’s, Inc. being the surviving corporation in the Merger). As a result of the Acquisition and certain post-acquisition activity, the Oak Hill Funds directly control approximately 95.4% of D&B Entertainment’s outstanding common stock and have the right to appoint certain members of our Board of Directors, and certain members of our Board of Directors and management control approximately 4.6% of the outstanding common stock of D&B Entertainment.

The Acquisition resulted in a change in ownership of 100% of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The purchase price paid in the Acquisition has been “pushed down” to the Company’s financial statements and is allocated to record the acquired assets and liabilities assumed based on their acquisition date fair value.

Expense Reimbursement Agreement

We entered into an expense reimbursement agreement with Oak Hill Capital Management, LLC, concurrently with the consummation of the Acquisition. Pursuant to this agreement, Oak Hill Capital Management, LLC provides general advice to us in connection with our long-term strategic plans, financial management, strategic transactions and other business matters. The expense reimbursement agreement provides for the reimbursement of certain expenses of Oak Hill Capital Management, LLC. We incurred expenses of $205 during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and $201 during the first quarter of fiscal 2012 under the terms of the expense reimbursement agreement. The initial term of the expense reimbursement agreement expires in June 2015 and after that date, such agreement will renew automatically on a year-to-year basis unless one party gives at least 30 days prior notice of its intention not to renew.

Presentation of Operating Results

We operate on a 52 or 53 week fiscal year that ends on the Sunday after the Saturday closest to January 31. Each quarter consists of 13 weeks, except for a 53 week year when the fourth quarter consists of 14 weeks. All references to the first quarter of 2013 relate to the 13 week period ended May 5, 2013. All references to the first quarter of 2012 relate to the 13 week period ended April 29, 2012. Our 2013 fiscal year will consist of 52 weeks and our 2012 fiscal year consisted of 53 weeks. As a result of the 53 week fiscal year in 2012, our 2013 fiscal year began one week later than our 2012 fiscal year. In order to provide useful information to investors to better analyze our business, we have provided below comparable store sales presented on a calendar week basis. Comparable store sales on a calendar week basis compares the results for the period from February 4, 2013 through May 5, 2013 (weeks 1 through 13 of our 2013 fiscal year) to the results for the period from February 6, 2012 through May 6, 2012 (weeks 2 through 14 of our 2012 fiscal year). We believe comparable store sales calculated on a calendar week basis is more indicative of the health of our business. However, we also recognize that comparable store sales growth calculated on a fiscal week basis is a useful measure when analyzing year-over-year changes in our financial statements.

Table of Contents

Overview

We monitor and analyze a number of key performance measures in order to manage our business and evaluate financial and operating performance. These measures include:

Revenue — Revenues consist of food and beverage revenues as well as amusement and other revenues. Beverage revenues refer to alcoholic beverages. For the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013, we derived 33.2% of our total revenue from food sales, 14.9% from beverage sales, 51.1% from amusement sales and 0.8% from other sources. Our revenues are primarily influenced by the number of stores in operation and comparable store revenue. Comparable store revenue growth reflects the change in year-over-year revenue for the comparable store base and is an important measure of store performance. We define our comparable store base to include those stores open at the end of the period which have been open for at least a full 18 months as of the beginning of each fiscal year. Percentage changes have been calculated based on an equivalent number of weeks in both the current and comparison periods. Comparable store sales growth can be generated by an increase in guest traffic counts or by increases in average dollars spent per guest.

We continually monitor the success of current food and beverage items, the availability of new menu offerings, the menu price structure and our ability to adjust prices where competitively appropriate. With respect to the beverage component, we operate fully licensed facilities, which means that we offer full beverage service, including alcoholic beverages, throughout each store.

Our stores also offer an extensive array of amusements and entertainment options, with typically over 150 redemption and simulation games. We also offer traditional pocket billiards and shuffleboard. Redemption games offer our guests the opportunity to win tickets that can be redeemed for prizes in the “Winner’s Circle,” ranging from branded novelty items to high-end home electronics. Our redemption games include basic games of skill, such as skeeball and basketball, as well as competitive racing, and individual electronic games of skill. We review the amount of game play on existing amusements in an effort to match amusements availability with guest preferences. We intend to continue to invest in new games as they become available and prove to be attractive to guests. Our unique venue allows us to provide our customers with value driven food and amusement combination offerings such as our “Eat, Play, Win Combo.” The “Eat, Play, Win Combo” allows customers to purchase a variety of entrée and game card pairings at various discounted fixed price levels and receive tickets that can be redeemed for prizes as part of the offering. We also offer “Half-Price Game Play Wednesdays,” which allows guests to play virtually all of our games for one-half of the regular price on Wednesdays. In addition, from time to time we have limited time offers which allow our guests to play certain new games for free as a way to introduce those new games.

We believe that special events business is a very important component of our revenue because a significant percentage of our guests attending a special event are visiting a Dave & Buster’s for the first time. This is a very advantageous way to introduce the concept to new guests. Accordingly, a considerable emphasis is placed on the special events portion of our business.

Cost of products Cost of products includes the cost of food, beverages and the “Winner’s Circle” redemption items. For the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013, the cost of food products averaged 25.6% of food revenue and the cost of beverage products averaged 23.4% of beverage revenue. The amusement and other cost of products averaged 14.0% of amusement and other revenues. The cost of products is driven by product mix and pricing movements from third-party suppliers. We continually strive to gain efficiencies in both the acquisition and use of products while maintaining high standards of product quality.

Operating payroll and benefits — Operating payroll and benefits consist of wages, employer taxes and benefits for store personnel. We continually review the opportunity for efficiencies principally through scheduling refinements.

Other store operating expenses — Other store operating expenses consist primarily of store-related occupancy, supply and outside service expenses, utilities, repair and maintenance and marketing and promotional costs.

Liquidity and cash flows —The primary source of cash flow is from our operating activities and availability under the revolving credit facility.

Store-level variability, quarterly fluctuations, seasonality, and inflation We have historically operated stores varying in size and have experienced significant variability among stores in volumes, operating results and net investment costs. Our new locations typically open with sales volumes in excess of their run-rate levels, which we refer to as a “honeymoon” effect. We expect our new store volumes and margins to be lower in the second full year of operations than in their first full year of operations, and to grow in line with the rest of our comparable store base thereafter. As a result of the substantial revenues associated with each new store, the timing of new store openings will result in significant fluctuations in quarterly results.

We also expect seasonality to be a factor in the operation or results of the business in the future with higher first and fourth quarter revenues associated with the spring and year-end holidays. These quarters will continue to be susceptible to the impact of severe weather on customer traffic and sales during that period. Our third quarter, which encompasses the end of the summer vacation season, has historically had lower revenues as compared to the other quarters.

We expect that volatile economic conditions will continue to exert pressure on both supplier pricing and consumer spending related to entertainment and dining alternatives. Although there is no assurance that our cost of products will remain stable or that federal or state minimum wage rates will not increase beyond amounts currently legislated, the effects of any supplier price increases or minimum wage rate increases are expected to be partially offset by selected menu price increases where competitively appropriate.

“Comparable store sales” (year-over-year comparison of stores operating at the end of the fiscal period and open at least 18 months as of the beginning of each of the fiscal years) is a key performance indicator used within the industry and is indicative of acceptance of our initiatives as well as local economic and consumer trends. The change in comparable store sales for fiscal 2013 has been calculated on a comparable calendar week basis as described previously.

The following discussion of store sales has been prepared by comparing fiscal 2013 revenues to an adjusted fiscal 2012 revenues. Fiscal 2012 revenues have been adjusted to reflect the impact of the shift in our fiscal 2013 calendar due to the 53rd week in our fiscal 2012, as discussed previously in “Presentation of Operating Results”. We have estimated the shift in comparable store revenues due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2012 to be a reduction in sales of $1,070. Comparable store revenue increased $2,619, or 1.8% in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the comparable 13 weeks of 2012. Comparable walk-in revenues, which accounted for 90.0% of consolidated comparable store revenue in the first quarter of 2013, increased $2,373, or 1.8% in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the similar period in 2012. Comparable store special events revenues, which accounted for 10.0% of consolidated comparable store revenue in the first quarter of 2013, increased $246 or 1.6% compared to the comparable period in 2012.

Sales growth was led by amusement revenue. Comparable store amusements and other revenues in the first quarter of 2013 increased by $1,772, or 2.3%, to $78,712 from $76,940 in the 2012 comparison period. The growth over 2012 in amusement sales was driven by Power Card up-sell initiatives and higher buy ins. Food sales at comparable stores increased by $519, or 1.0%, to $50,613 in the first quarter of 2013 from $50,094 in the comparable period in 2012. Beverage sales at comparable stores increased by $328, or 1.5%, to $22,836 in the first quarter of 2013 from $22,508 in the comparable period in 2012.

We have estimated the shift in non-comparable store revenue due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2012 to be a reduction in sales of $285. The non-comparable store revenue increased by a total of $3,925, or 31.1%, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the comparable 13 weeks of 2012. The increase in non-comparable store revenue was primarily driven by sales at our Orland Park, Illinois store which opened in the third quarter of 2012, and our Dallas, Texas and Boise, Idaho stores which opened in the fourth quarter of 2012. The revenue gains achieved in our stores opening in the second half of fiscal 2012 were partially offset by revenue decreases in our stores opened in fiscal 2011 and early fiscal 2012, due to those stores coming out of the “honeymoon” period, and the December 2012 closure of one store in Dallas, Texas.

Our revenue mix was 33.2% for food, 14.9% for beverage, and 51.9% for amusements and other for the first quarter of 2013. This compares to 33.3%, 15.1%, and 51.6%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2012.

Cost of products

Cost of food and beverage products increased to $20,151 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $19,207 in the first quarter of 2012 due primarily to the increased sales volume. Cost of food and beverage products, as a percentage of food and beverage revenues, increased 60 basis points to 24.9% for the first quarter of 2013 from 24.3% for the first quarter of 2012. Increased cost pressure in our meat and poultry categories was partially offset by reduced seafood costs.

Cost of amusement and other increased to $12,213 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $11,747 in the first quarter of 2012. The costs of amusement and other, as a percentage of amusement and other revenues increased 10 basis points to 14.0% for the first quarter of 2013 from 13.9% for the first quarter of 2012.

Operating payroll and benefits

Operating payroll and benefits increased by $829, or 2.3%, to $37,439 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $36,610 in the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to new store openings during fiscal 2012. The total cost of operating payroll and benefits, as a percent of total revenues, decreased 10 basis points to 22.3% for the first quarter of 2013 compared to 22.4% for the first quarter of 2012. The decrease in operating payroll and benefits, as a percentage of revenues, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012, was driven primarily by decreased incentive compensation expense, partially offset by management labor costs.

Other store operating expenses

Other store operating expenses decreased by $700, or 1.4%, to $48,181 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $48,881 in the first quarter of 2012, driven primarily by reduced cost of marketing due to strategic shifts in media purchasing. Other store operating expenses as a percentage of total revenues decreased 120 basis points to 28.7% in the first quarter of 2013 compared to 29.9% for the same period of 2012.

General and administrative expenses

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of personnel, facilities, and professional expenses for the various departments of our corporate headquarters. General and administrative expenses increased by $707, or 7.8%, to $9,724 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $9,017 in the first quarter of 2012. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily driven by increased salaries at our corporate headquarters and consulting and professional fees, partially offset by decreased incentive compensation expense.

Depreciation and amortization expense

Depreciation and amortization expense includes the depreciation of fixed assets and the amortization of trademarks with finite lives. Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $2,115, or 14.3%, to $16,910 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $14,795 in the first quarter of 2012. The increase was driven by higher depreciation associated with new store openings, major remodeling projects at sixteen stores during fiscal 2012 and 2013, several smaller scale remodels in fiscal 2013 and maintenance capital expenditures. These increases were partially offset by the absence of depreciation related to our location in Dallas, Texas which closed in December 2012.

Pre-opening costs

Pre-opening costs include costs associated with the opening and organizing of new stores or conversion of existing stores, including pre-opening rent, staff training and recruiting, and travel costs for employees engaged in such pre-opening activities. Pre-opening costs increased by $722 to $872 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $150 in the first quarter of 2012 due to the timing of new store openings. During the first quarter of 2013, our pre-opening costs were primarily attributable to our future sites located at Virginia Beach, Virginia, Albany, New York and Syracuse, New York. These three locations are expected to open in mid-fiscal year 2013. During the first quarter of 2012, our pre-opening costs consisted primarily of expenses incurred in connection with our Orland Park, Illinois store, which opened for business on September 22, 2012, and our Dallas, Texas store, which opened for business on December 2, 2012.

Interest expense

Interest expense includes the cost of our debt obligations including the amortization of loan fees and original issue discounts, and any interest income earned. Interest expense decreased by $200 to $8,142 in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $8,342 in the first quarter of 2012.

Income tax expense

The income tax expense for 2013 was $4,494 compared to an income tax expense of $3,741 for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Our effective tax rate differs from the statutory rate due to the FICA tip credits, state income taxes and the impact of certain expenses, which are not deductible for income tax purposes.

In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, at May 5, 2013 we considered whether it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Accordingly, we have established a valuation allowance of $1,160 for deferred tax assets associated with state taxes, foreign taxes and uncertain tax positions as of May 5, 2013. The ultimate realization of our deferred tax assets is dependent on the generation of future taxable income during periods in which temporary differences and carryforwards become deductible.

We have previously adopted the accounting guidance for uncertainty in income taxes. This guidance limits the recognition of income tax benefits to those items that meet the “more likely than not” threshold on the effective date. As of May 5, 2013, we have accrued approximately $588 of unrecognized tax benefits and approximately $301 of penalties and interest. During the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013, we increased our unrecognized provision by $117 and increased our accrual for interest and penalties by $11. Because of the impact of deferred tax accounting, $509 of unrecognized tax benefits, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate.

We file income tax returns, which are periodically audited by various federal, state and foreign jurisdictions. We are generally no longer subject to federal, state, or foreign income tax examinations for years prior to fiscal 2008.

The Company is a member of a consolidated group that includes D&B Entertainment. As of May 5, 2013, the Company owes D&B Entertainment approximately $5,015 of tax related balances. Included in income tax payable is $2,123, which the Company anticipates paying to D&B Entertainment in fiscal 2013. In fiscal 2013, we expect to utilize approximately $3,177 of available stand-alone tax credit carryforwards to offset our estimated stand-alone cash tax liability to D&B Entertainment.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We finance our activities through cash flow from operations, our senior notes, and borrowings under our senior secured credit facility. As of May 5, 2013, we had cash and cash equivalents of $64,108, net working capital of $12,975 and outstanding debt obligations of $345,267 ($344,533 net of discount). We also had $44,330 in borrowing availability under our senior secured credit facility, which includes $1,000 in borrowing availability under our Canadian revolving credit facility.

In the past we have had, and anticipate that in the future we will have, negative working capital balances. We are able to operate with a working capital deficit because cash from sales is usually received before related liabilities for product, supplies, labor and services become due. Funds available from sales not needed immediately to pay for operating expenses have typically been used for noncurrent capital expenditures and payment of long-term debt obligations under our senior secured credit facility and senior notes.

Short-term liquidity requirements — We generally consider our short-term liquidity requirements to consist of those items that are expected to be incurred within the next twelve months and believe those requirements to consist primarily of funds necessary to pay operating expenses, interest and principal payments on our debt, capital expenditures related to the new store construction and other expenditures associated with acquiring new games, remodeling facilities and recurring replacement of equipment and improvements.

As of May 5, 2013, we expect our short-term liquidity requirements to include (a) approximately $127,000 of capital expenditures (net of cash contributions from landlords), (b) scheduled debt service payments of $31,704, including $1,267 in principal payments and $30,437 in interest, (c) lease obligation payments of $54,192 and (d) estimated cash tax payments of approximately $3,600.

Long-term liquidity requirements — We generally consider our long-term liquidity requirements to consist of those items that are expected to be incurred beyond the next twelve months and believe these requirements consist primarily of funds necessary for new store development and construction, replacement of games and equipment, performance-necessary renovations and other non-recurring capital expenditures that need to be made periodically to our stores and payments of scheduled debt and lease obligations. We intend to satisfy our long-term liquidity requirements through various sources of capital, including our existing working capital, cash provided by operations, and borrowings under our senior secured credit facility.

We believe the cash flows from operations, together with our existing cash balances and borrowings under the senior secured credit facility described below, will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash needs for working capital, capital expenditures, and debt service needs in the foreseeable future. Our ability to make scheduled payments of principal or interest on, or to refinance, our indebtedness, or to fund planned capital expenditures, will depend on future performance, which is subject to general economic conditions, competitive environment and other factors.

Indebtedness

Senior Secured Credit Facility — Our senior secured credit facility provides (a) a $150,000 term loan facility with a maturity date of June 1, 2016 and (b) a $50,000 revolving credit facility with a maturity date of June 1, 2015. The $50,000 revolving credit facility includes (i) a $20,000 letter of credit sub-facility (ii) a $5,000 swingline sub-facility and (iii) a $1,000 (in US Dollar equivalent) sub-facility available in Canadian dollars to the Company’s Canadian subsidiary. The revolving credit facility will be used to provide financing for general purposes. The senior secured credit facility is secured by the Company’s assets and is unconditionally guaranteed by each of our direct and indirect, existing and future domestic subsidiaries (with certain agreed-upon exceptions) and by certain specified guarantors with respect to the obligations of the Canadian subsidiary. As of May 5, 2013, we had no borrowings under the revolving credit facility, borrowings of $145,267 ($144,533, net of discount) under the term facility and $5,670 in letters of credit outstanding. We believe that the carrying amount of our term credit facility approximates its fair value because the interest rates are adjusted regularly based on current market conditions.

The interest rates per annum applicable to loans, other than swingline loans, under our senior secured credit facility are set periodically based on, at our option, either (1) the greatest of (a) the defined prime rate in effect, (b) the Federal Funds Effective Rate in effect plus 1 / 2 of 1% and (c) a Eurodollar rate which is subject to a minimum (or, in the case of the Canadian revolving credit facility, a Canadian prime rate or Canadian cost of funds rate), for one-, two-, three- or six-months (or, if agreed by the applicable lenders, nine or twelve months) or, in relation to the Canadian revolving credit facility, 30-, 60-, 90- or 180-day interest periods chosen by us or our Canadian subsidiary, as applicable in each case (the “Base Rate”), plus an applicable margin or (2) a defined Eurodollar rate plus an applicable margin. Swingline loans bear interest at the Base Rate plus the applicable margin. The effective rate of interest on borrowings under our senior secured credit facility is 5.8% for the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013.

On May 13, 2011, the Company executed an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the senior secured credit facility. The Amendment reduced the applicable term loan margins and LIBOR floor used in setting interest rates, as well as limited the Company’s requirement to meet the covenant ratios, as stipulated in the Amendment, until such time as we make a draw on our revolving credit facility or issue letters of credit in excess of $12,000. As of May 5, 2013, we have had no draws on our revolving credit facility and outstanding letters of credit have not exceeded $12,000, and as such we were not required to maintain financial ratios under our senior secured credit facility.

On May 14, 2013, the Company executed a second amendment (the “Second Amendment”) to the senior secured credit facility. The primary modification included in the Second Amendment is a reduction in the applicable term loan margin, which is reduced by 0.75% per annum based on a consolidated leverage ratio greater than or equal to 2.75:1.00. For a consolidated leverage ratio less than 2.75:1.00, the applicable term loan margin will be reduced further by 0.25%. Additionally, the Second Amendment reduced the LIBOR floor used in setting rates by 0.25%.

Interest rates on borrowings under our senior secured credit facility will vary based on the movement of prescribed indexes and/or applicable margin percentages. On the last day of each calendar quarter, we will be required to pay a commitment fee on the average daily unused portion of the revolving credit facilities (with swingline loans not deemed, for these purposes, to be a utilization of the revolving credit facility). Our senior secured credit facility requires scheduled quarterly payments of principal on the term loans near the end of each of the fiscal quarters in aggregate annual amounts equal to a percentage of the original aggregate principal amount of the term loan with the balance payable on the maturity date. Our senior secured credit facility requires us to make mandatory debt prepayments to the extent that we have excess cash flow, as defined by the facility, in any completed fiscal year. During the first quarter of fiscal 2013 we made a $608 debt prepayment based on our fiscal 2012 excess cash flow. The excess cash flow prepayment represented early payment of $375 in principal which was due on April 30, 2013 and $233 in principal which is due on July 30, 2013.

Funds managed by Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. (the “OHA Funds”) is one of twenty-two creditors participating in the term loan portion of our senior secured credit facility. As of May 5, 2013, the OHA Funds held approximately 9.43%, or $13,695, of our total term loan obligation. Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. is an independent investment firm that is not an affiliate of Oak Hill Capital Partners and is not under common control with Oak Hill Capital Partners. Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. and an affiliate of Oak Hill Capital Management, LLC co-manage Oak Hill Special Opportunities Fund, L.P., a private fund. Certain employees of Oak Hill Capital Partners, in their individual capacities, have passive investments in Oak Hill Advisors, L.P. and/or the funds it manages.

Senior notes — Our senior notes are general unsecured, unsubordinated obligations of the Company and mature on June 1, 2018. Interest on the notes is paid semi-annually and accrues at the rate of 11.0% per annum. On or after June 1, 2014, the Company may redeem all, or from time-to-time, a part of the senior notes at redemption prices (expressed as a percentage of principal amount) ranging from 105.5% to 100.0% plus accrued and unpaid interest on the senior notes. As of May 5, 2013, our $200,000 of senior notes had an approximate fair value of $225,800 based on quoted market price.

The senior notes restrict the Company’s ability to incur indebtedness, outside of the senior secured credit facility, unless the consolidated coverage ratio exceeds 2.00:1.00 or other financial and operational requirements are met. Additionally, the terms of the senior notes restrict the Company’s ability to make certain payments to affiliated entities. The Company was in compliance with the debt covenants as of May 5, 2013.

Covenants — On May 13, 2011, the Company executed an amendment (the “Amendment”) to its senior secured credit facility. The Amendment reduced the applicable term loan margins and LIBOR floor used in setting interest rates, as well as limited the Company’s requirement to meet the covenant ratios, as stipulated in the Amendment, until such time as we make a draw on our revolving credit facility or issue letters of credit in excess of $12,000. As of May 5, 2013, we have had no draws on our revolving credit facility and outstanding letters of credit have not exceeded $12,000, and as such, we were not required to maintain financial ratios under our senior secured credit facility.

Table of Contents

Our senior secured credit facility and the indenture governing the senior notes contain restrictive covenants that, among other things, will limit our ability and the ability of our subsidiaries to incur additional indebtedness, make loans or advances to subsidiaries and other entities, make initial capital expenditures in relation to new stores, declare dividends, and acquire other businesses or sell assets. In addition, under our senior secured credit facility, we will be required to meet certain financial covenants, ratios and tests, including a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio and a maximum total leverage ratio. The indenture under which the senior notes have been issued also contain similar covenants and events of defaults.

Cash Flows

The following table presents a summary of our net cash provided by (used in) operating, investing and financing activities:

 

     Thirteen Weeks
Ended May 5, 2013
    Thirteen Weeks
Ended April 29, 2012
 

Net cash provided by (used in):

    

Operating activities

   $ 38,173      $ 30,592   

Investing activities

     (9,574     (5,041

Financing activities

     (608     (375

Net cash provided by operating activities was $38,173 for the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013 compared to cash provided by operating activities of $30,592 for the thirteen weeks ended April 29, 2012. Improved cash flows from operations were driven primarily by additional non-comparable store sales.

Net cash used in investing activities was $9,574 for the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013 compared to $5,041 for the thirteen weeks ended April 29, 2012. Net cash used in investing activities increased mainly due to increase in capital expenditures. Capital expenditures increased $4,584 to $9,679 in the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013 from $5,095 in the thirteen weeks ended April 29, 2012. New store capital expenditures increased $2,827 during the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013 related primarily to construction of our Boise, Idaho store, which opened during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, and our Virginia Beach, Virginia, Albany, New York and Syracuse, New York stores projected to open in mid-fiscal 2013. Capital expenditures related to the major remodel project on seven existing stores and several smaller scale remodel projects increased $2,410 during the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Partially offsetting increased expenditures related to new store openings and remodel projects was decreased maintenance capital expenditures of $653 in the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013 compared to the thirteen weeks ended April 29, 2012.

Net cash used by financing activities was $608 for the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2013 compared to cash used in financing activities of $375 for the thirteen weeks ended April 29, 2012. The increase in net cash used by financing activities is due to the mandatory prepayment of $608 pursuant to our credit agreement. $375 was applied to our regularly scheduled principal payment due on April 30, 2013 and the remaining $233 will be applied toward the regularly scheduled payment due on July 30, 2013.

We plan on financing future growth through operating cash flows, debt facilities and tenant improvement allowances from landlords. We expect to spend between $114,000 and $124,000 ($95,000 to $105,000 net of cash contributions from landlords) in capital expenditures during fiscal 2013. The fiscal 2013 expenditures are expected to include approximately $88,000 to $98,000 ($69,000 to $79,000 net of cash contributions from landlords) for new store construction and operating improvement initiatives, including seven store remodels, $11,000 for game refreshment and $15,000 in maintenance capital. A portion of the 2013 new store expenditures is related to stores that will be under construction in 2013 but will not be open until 2014.

Table of Contents
(2) The cash obligations for interest requirements consist of requirements on our fixed rate debt obligations at their contractual rates and variable rate debt obligations at rates in effect at May 5, 2013.
(3) Our operating leases generally provide for one or more renewal options. These renewal options allow us to extend the term of the lease for a specified time at an established annual lease payment. Future obligations related to lease renewal options that have been exercised or were reasonably assured to be exercised as of the lease origination date, have been included in the table above.

Accounting Policies

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires us to make estimates and assumptions about future events. These estimates and assumptions affect amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of gain and loss contingencies at the date of the consolidated financial statements. Our current estimates are subject to change if different assumptions as to the outcome of future events were made. We evaluate our estimates and judgments on an ongoing basis and predicate those estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other factors that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. We adjust our assumptions and judgments when facts and circumstances dictate. Since future events and their effects cannot be determined with absolute certainty, actual results may differ from the estimates we used in preparing the accompanying consolidated financial statements. A complete description of our critical accounting policies is included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 3, 2013.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements — See Note 1 “Description of Business and Basis of Presentation” to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part I, Item 1, “Financial Statements” for a description of new accounting standards and their anticipated effects on our Consolidated Financial Statements.

Significant accounting policies — There were no significant changes to our critical accounting policies from those disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC for the year ended February 3, 2013.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

There have been no material changes in our quantitative and qualitative market risks since the prior reporting period.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended, as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures are effective.

Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

On July 21, 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Act”) became law. The Act provides smaller companies and debt only issuers with a permanent exemption from the Sarbanes-Oxley internal control audit requirements. The permanent exemption applies only to the external audit requirement of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Non-accelerated filers are still required to disclose “management’s assessment” of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting. There were no significant changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during our first quarter ended May 5, 2013, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Form 10-Q includes statements that are, or may deemed to be, “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms “believes,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “will” or “should” or, in each case, their negative or other variations or comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include all matters that are not historical facts. They appear in a number of places throughout this Form 10-Q and include statements regarding our intentions, beliefs or current expectations concerning, among other things, our results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, prospects, growth, strategies and the industry in which we operate.

By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and our actual results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and the development of the industry in which we operate may differ materially from those made in or suggested by the forward-looking statements contained in this Form 10-Q. In addition, even if our results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and the development of the industry in which we operate are consistent with the forward-looking statements contained in this Form 10-Q, those results or developments may not be indicative of results or developments in subsequent periods. An expanded discussion of these risk factors is contained in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 3, 2013.

SECOND AMENDMENT

SECOND AMENDMENT, dated as of May 14, 2013 (this “Amendment”), to the Credit Agreement, dated as of June 1, 2010, as amended by the First Amendment, dated as of May 13, 2011 (as further amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”), among Dave & Buster’s Holdings, Inc., Dave & Buster’s, Inc. (the “US Borrower”), 6131646 Canada Inc. (the “Canadian Borrower”, and together with the US Borrower, the “Borrowers”), the several lenders from time to time parties thereto (the “Lenders”), JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”) and the other agents parties thereto.

W I T N E S S E T H:

WHEREAS, pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the Lenders have agreed to make, and have made, certain loans and other extensions of credit to the Borrowers;

WHEREAS, the Borrowers have requested (i) that the Credit Agreement be amended and restated in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Amended Credit Agreement”) and (ii) that the outstanding Term Loans be replaced with a new term facility (the “Amended Term Loan Facility”) by obtaining New Term Loan Commitments (as defined in Section 3 of this Amendment) and having existing Term Loans be continued as provided herein;

WHEREAS, the loans under the Amended Term Loan Facility (the “New Term Loans”) will replace and refinance the currently outstanding Term Loans and are collectively intended to be Replacement Term Loans, as contemplated in the third paragraph of Section 10.1 of the Credit Agreement;

WHEREAS, except as otherwise provided in the Amended Credit Agreement, the New Term Loans will have the same terms as the Term Loans currently outstanding under the Credit Agreement;

WHEREAS, each existing Term Lender that executes and delivers a signature page to this Amendment (a “Lender Addendum”) and in connection therewith agrees to continue all (or, at the Lead Arranger’s (as hereinafter defined) election, part) of its outstanding Term Loans as New Term Loans (such continued Term Loans, the “Continued Term Loans”, and such Lenders, collectively, the “Continuing Term Lenders”) will thereby (i) agree to the terms of this Amendment and (ii) agree to continue all (or, at the Lead Arranger’s election, part) of its existing Term Loans (such existing Term Loans, the “Existing Term Loans”, and the Lenders of such Existing Term Loans, collectively, the “Existing Term Lenders”) outstanding on the Second Amendment Effective Date (as defined below) as New Term Loans in a principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of such Existing Term Loans so continued;

WHEREAS, Existing Term Lenders that do not become Continuing Term Lenders as contemplated by the preceding recital shall not (unless the Lead Arranger otherwise consents) otherwise be permitted to become an Additional Term Lender (as defined below);

WHEREAS, subject to the preceding recitals, each Person (other than a Continuing Term Lender in its capacity as such) that executes and delivers a Lender Addendum and agrees in connection therewith to make New Term Loans (collectively, the “Additional Term Lenders”) will thereby (i) agree to the terms of this Amendment and (ii) commit to make New Term Loans to the US Borrower on the Second Amendment Effective Date (the “Additional Term Loans”) in such amount (not in excess of any such commitment) as is determined by the Administrative Agent and notified to such Additional Term Lender;


WHEREAS, the proceeds of the Additional Term Loans will be used by the US Borrower to repay in full the outstanding principal amount of the Existing Term Loans that are not continued as New Term Loans by Continuing Term Lenders;

WHEREAS, the Continuing Term Lenders and the Additional Term Lenders (collectively, the “New Term Lenders”) are severally willing to continue their Existing Term Loans as New Term Loans and/or to make New Term Loans, as the case may be, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Amendment;

WHEREAS, upon the occurrence of the Second Amendment Effective Date (as defined in Section 4 of this Amendment), the New Term Lenders (as defined below) will constitute Required Lenders under the Credit Agreement; and

WHEREAS, upon the occurrence of the Second Amendment Effective Date, the Credit Agreement will be deemed amended and restated in the form of the Amended Credit Agreement;

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and mutual covenants hereinafter set forth, the parties hereto agree as follows:

SECTION 1. Definitions. Unless otherwise defined herein, terms defined in the Credit Agreement and used herein shall have the meanings given to them in the Credit Agreement.

SECTION 2. Amendments. (a) Effective as of the Second Amendment Effective Date, the Credit Agreement shall be amended to read in its entirety as set forth in Exhibit A hereto. Except as otherwise provided in the Amended Credit Agreement, all schedules and exhibits to the Credit Agreement, in the forms thereof immediately prior to the Second Amendment Effective Date, will continue to be schedules and exhibits to the Amended Credit Agreement; provided that Exhibit E to the Credit Agreement shall be amended to read in its entirety as set forth in Exhibit B hereto.

(b) The New Term Lenders, constituting Required Lenders, hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to amend the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement to insert the following new defined term and the following new Section 2.8, as well as enter into any additional amendments to the Guarantee and Collateral Agreement as necessary to carve out Excluded Swap Obligations:

Qualified Keepwell Provider”: in respect of any Swap Obligation, each Loan Party that, at the time the relevant guarantee (or grant of the relevant security interest, as applicable) becomes effective with respect to such Swap Obligation, has total assets exceeding $10,000,000 or otherwise constitutes an “eligible contract participant” under the Commodity Exchange Act or any regulations promulgated thereunder and can cause another person to qualify as an “eligible contract participant” with respect to such Swap Obligation at such time by entering into a keepwell pursuant to section 1a(18)(A)(v)(II) of the Commodity Exchange Act.”

“2.8. Keepwell. Each Qualified Keepwell Provider hereby jointly and severally absolutely, unconditionally, and irrevocably undertakes to provide such funds or other support as may be needed from time to time by each other Loan Party to honor all of its obligations under its guarantee in respect of any Swap Obligation

 

2


(provided, however, that each Qualified Keepwell Provider shall only be liable under this Section 2.8 for the maximum amount of such liability that can be hereby incurred without rendering its obligations under this Section 2.8, or otherwise under this guarantee, voidable under applicable law relating to fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer, and not for any greater amount). The obligations of each Qualified Keepwell Provider under this Section 2.8 shall remain in full force and effect until all the Borrower Obligations and the obligations of each Guarantor under the guarantee contained in this Section 2 shall have been satisfied by payment in full, no Letter of Credit shall be outstanding and the Commitments shall be terminated. Each Qualified Keepwell Provider intends that this Section 2.8 constitute, and this Section 2.8 shall be deemed to constitute, a “keepwell, support, or other agreement” for the benefit of each other Loan Party for all purposes of section 1a(18)(A)(v)(II) of the Commodity Exchange Act.”

SECTION 3. New Term Loans.

(a) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein (i) each Continuing Term Lender agrees to continue all (or, at the Lead Arranger’s election, part) of its Existing Term Loans as a New Term Loan on the date requested by the US Borrower to be the Second Amendment Effective Date (which date shall not be later than May 31, 2013) in a principal amount up to the amount of such Continuing Term Lender’s New Term Loan Commitment (as defined below) and (ii) each Additional Term Lender agrees to make a New Term Loan on such date to the US Borrower in a principal amount equal to such Additional Term Lender’s New Term Loan Commitment. For purposes hereof, a Person may become a party to the Amended Credit Agreement and a New Term Lender as of the Second Amendment Effective Date by executing and delivering to the Administrative Agent, on or prior to the Second Amendment Effective Date, a Lender Addendum in its capacity as a New Term Lender. The US Borrower shall give notice to the Administrative Agent of the proposed Second Amendment Effective Date not later than one Business Day prior thereto, and the Administrative Agent shall notify each Term Lender and each Additional Term Lender thereof. For the avoidance of doubt, the Existing Term Loans of a Continuing Term Lender must be continued in whole and may not be continued in part unless approved by J.P. Morgan Securities LLC (the “Lead Arranger”).

(b) Each Additional Term Lender will make its New Term Loan on the Second Amendment Effective Date by making available to the Administrative Agent, in the manner contemplated by Section 2.2 of the Credit Agreement, an amount equal to its New Term Loan Commitment. Each Existing Term Loan continued by a Continuing Term Lender as a New Term Loan as contemplated herein is referred to herein as a “Continued Term Loan”. The “New Term Loan Commitment” (i) of any Continuing Term Lender will be the amount of its Existing Term Loans as set forth in the Register as of the Second Amendment Effective Date or, if less, as allocated to it by the Administrative Agent and notified to it on or prior to the Second Amendment Effective Date, which shall be continued as an equal amount of New Term Loans, and (ii) of any Additional Term Lender will be such amount (not exceeding any commitment offered by such Additional Term Lender) allocated to it by the Administrative Agent and notified to it on or prior to the Second Amendment Effective Date. The commitments of the Additional Term Lenders and the continuation undertakings of the Continuing Term Lenders are several and no such Lender will be responsible for any other such Lender’s failure to make or acquire by continuation its New Term Loan. The New Term Loans may from time to time be ABR Loans or Eurodollar Loans, as determined by the US Borrower and notified to the Administrative Agent as contemplated by Sections 2.2 and 2.12. Upon continuation, the Continued Term Loans shall be ABR Loans or Eurodollar Loans with Interest Periods as determined by the US Borrower, and the Lenders having Existing Term Loans that are prepaid or continued in connection with the making of the New Term Loans shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 2.20 of the Credit Agreement with respect thereto.

 

3


(c) The obligation of each New Term Lender to make or acquire by continuation New Term Loans on the Second Amendment Effective Date is subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 4 of this Amendment.

(d) On and after the Second Amendment Effective Date, each reference in the Credit Agreement to “Term Loans” shall be deemed a reference to the New Term Loans contemplated hereby, except as the context may otherwise require. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of the Credit Agreement with respect to indemnification, reimbursement of costs and expenses, increased costs and break funding payments shall continue in full force and effect with respect to, and for the benefit of, each Existing Term Loan Lender in respect of such Lender’s Existing Term Loans.

(e) For the avoidance of doubt, the Lenders hereby acknowledge and agree that, at the sole option of the Lead Arranger, any Lender with Existing Term Loans which are replaced as contemplated hereby shall, automatically upon receipt of the amount necessary to purchase such Lender’s Existing Term Loans so replaced, at par, and pay all accrued interest thereon, be deemed to have assigned such Loans pursuant to a form of Assignment and Assumption and, accordingly, no other action by the Lenders, the Administrative Agent or the Loan Parties shall be required in connection therewith. The Lenders hereby agree to waive the notice requirements of Section 2.10 of the Credit Agreement in connection with the prepayment or replacement of Existing Term Loans contemplated hereby.

SECTION 4. Effectiveness. This Amendment shall become effective as of the date (the “Second Amendment Effective Date”) on which the following conditions have been satisfied:

(a) The Administrative Agent (or its counsel) shall have received (i) duly executed and completed counterparts hereof (in the form provided and specified by the Administrative Agent) that, when taken together, bear the signatures of Holdings and the Borrowers and (ii) Lender Addenda, executed and delivered by the Continuing Term Lenders and the Additional Term Lenders.

(b) The Administrative Agent shall have received all fees required to be paid on or before the Second Amendment Effective Date.

(c) To the extent invoiced, the Administrative Agent shall have received payment or reimbursement of its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses in connection with this Amendment and any other out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent required to be paid or reimbursed pursuant to the Credit Agreement, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of counsel for the Administrative Agent.

(d) No Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing under the Credit Agreement.

(e) All representations and warranties set forth in Section 4 of the Credit Agreement shall be true and correct in all material respects, except to the extent such representations and warranties expressly relate to an earlier date (in which case such representations and warranties shall have been true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date).

(f) The Borrowers and the other Loan Parties shall have executed an instrument of acknowledgement and confirmation reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent with respect to the guarantees, security interests and liens created under the Security Documents.

 

4


Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Amendment to the contrary, the Administrative Agent may appoint a fronting lender to act as the sole Additional Term Lender for purposes of facilitating funding on the Second Amendment Effective Date. Accordingly, any Lender Addendum submitted by or on behalf of an Additional Term Lender other than such fronting lender will be deemed ineffective unless accepted by the Lead Arranger in its sole discretion.

SECTION 5. Representations and Warranties. Each of Holdings, the US Borrower and the Canadian Borrower represents and warrants to each of the Lenders and the Administrative Agent that as of the Second Amendment Effective Date:

5.1. This Amendment has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by it and this Amendment and the Amended Credit Agreement constitutes its legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and by general equitable principles (whether enforcement is sought by proceedings in equity or at law).

5.2. Each of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 4 of the Credit Agreement are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the Second Amendment Effective Date with the same effect as though made on and as of the Second Amendment Effective Date, except to the extent such representations and warranties expressly relate to an earlier date (in which case such representations and warranties were true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date).

SECTION 6. Effect of Amendment.

6.1. Except as expressly set forth herein, this Amendment shall not by implication or otherwise limit, impair, constitute a waiver of or otherwise affect the rights and remedies of the Lenders or the Administrative Agent under the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, and shall not alter, modify, amend or in any way affect any of the terms, conditions, obligations, covenants or agreements contained in the Credit Agreement or any other provision of the Credit Agreement or of any other Loan Document, all of which are ratified and affirmed in all respects and shall continue in full force and affect. Nothing herein shall be deemed to entitle the Borrowers to a consent to, or a waiver, amendment, modification or other change of, any of the terms, conditions, obligations, covenants or agreements contained in the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document in similar or different circumstances.

6.2. On and after the Second Amendment Effective Date, each reference in the Credit Agreement to “this Agreement”, “hereunder”, “hereof”, “herein”, or words of like import, and each reference to the Credit Agreement in any other Loan Document shall be deemed a reference to the Credit Agreement as amended hereby. This Amendment shall constitute a “Loan Document” for all purposes of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

SECTION 7. General.

7.1. GOVERNING LAW. THIS AMENDMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES UNDER THIS AMENDMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED AND INTERPRETED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

7.2. Costs and Expenses. The Borrowers agree to reimburse the Administrative Agent for its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses in connection with this Amendment, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of counsel for the Administrative Agent.

 

5


7.3. Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Amendment on any number of separate counterparts, and all of said counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument. Delivery of an executed signature page of this Amendment by email or facsimile transmission shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart hereof.

7.4. Headings. The headings of this Amendment are used for convenience of reference only, are not part of this Amendment and shall not affect the construction of, or be taken into consideration in interpreting, this Amendment.
