 Dave & Buster’s Entertainment, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results
   Tuesday, September 06, 2016 4:05:18 PM ET

Achieves Net Income of $21.5 million and EPS of $0.50

Affirms Total Revenues, Net Income, and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance for Fiscal 2016

Dave & Buster’s Entertainment, Inc., (PLAY ), ("Dave & Buster’s" or "the "Company"), an owner and operator of entertainment and dining venues, today announced financial results for its second quarter 2016, which ended on July 31, 2016. The Company also affirmed its fiscal 2016 total revenues, net income, and adjusted EBITDA guidance.

Key highlights from the second quarter 2016 compared to the second quarter 2015 include:

-- Total revenues increased 12.4% to $244.3 million from $217.3 million.

-- Comparable store sales increased 1.0% compared to an 11.0% increase.

-- Opened two stores in both second quarters, respectively.

-- Net income increased 71.1% to $21.5 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to net income of $12.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share.

-- Adjusted EBITDA*, a non-GAAP measure, increased 21.9% to $64.2 million from $52.7 million. As a percentage of total revenues, Adjusted EBITDA increased approximately 210 basis points to 26.3%.

* A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Store EBITDA to Net income, the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP, is set forth in the attachment to this release.

"Given our year-to-date performance, we are increasingly confident in our annual guidance for total revenues, net income, and adjusted EBITDA, despite the challenges affecting the casual dining industry and our revised expectations for softer comparable store sales trends this year. The growing impact of new store development and the continued shift in revenues to our higher-margin amusement category coupled with operating leverage are clearly evident in our second quarter results, as the 20 non-comparable stores contributed $24.7 million to our 12.4% total revenues growth and Adjusted EBITDA growth of 21.9%," said Steve King, Chief Executive Officer.

"We generated a 1.0% increase in comparable store sales during the second quarter and 12.0% on a two-year stacked basis, lapping an 11.0% increase from the prior year. While comparable store sales growth was modest, it still exceeded the competitive casual dining benchmark, which we have outperformed for 17 straight quarters. Our unique entertainment, dining, and sports viewing venues provide us with some degree of insulation from general industry trends and we are keeping our brand fresh through new food and beverage options and exciting new games to further differentiate ourselves," he continued.

"We now expect to open ten to eleven stores in fiscal 2016, including up to six openings in new markets for our brand. Our development pipeline is solid and we are well positioned over the long-term to capitalize on the changing retail dynamics affecting big box operators and malls," he concluded.

Review of Second Quarter 2016 Operating Results

Total revenues increased 12.4% to $244.3 million in the second quarter 2016 from $217.3 million in the second quarter 2015. Food and Beverage revenues increased 8.5% to $107.7 million and Amusement and Other revenues increased 15.7% to $136.7 million. Food and Beverage represented 44.1% of total revenues while Amusements and Other represented 55.9% of total revenues in the second quarter 2016. In last year’s second quarter, Food and Beverage represented 45.6% of total revenues while Amusements and Other represented 54.4% of total revenues.

Comparable store sales increased 1.0% in the second quarter 2016 compared to an 11.0% increase in the same period last year. Our comparable store sales growth was driven by a 0.9% increase in walk-in sales and a 1.9% increase in special events sales. Non-comparable store revenues increased by $24.7 million or 99.5% in the second quarter 2016 to $49.5 million.

Operating income increased to $36.0 million in the second quarter 2016 from $26.8 million in last year’s second quarter. As a percentage of total revenues, operating income increased approximately 240 basis points to 14.7%.

Net income increased to $21.5 million, or $0.50 per diluted share (43.3 million diluted share base), in the second quarter 2016 compared to net income of $12.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share (42.7 million diluted share base), in the same period last year. Net income in the second quarter of 2015 included a non-recurring loss on debt retirement of approximately $4.7 million (net of tax) or $0.11 per diluted share.

Store EBITDA*, a non-GAAP measure, increased 18.3% to $74.0 million in the second quarter 2016 from $62.5 million in last year’s second quarter. As a percentage of total revenues, Store EBITDA increased approximately 150 basis points to 30.3%.

Adjusted EBITDA* increased 21.9% to $64.2 million in the second quarter 2016 from $52.7 million in the same period last year. As a percentage of total revenues, Adjusted EBITDA increased approximately 210 basis points to 26.3%.

Development

In fiscal 2016, we now intend to open a total of ten to eleven new stores (vs. nine to ten stores previously guided) spanning the small and large store formats. We currently have eight stores under construction.

We opened two stores during the second quarter in Florence, Kentucky and Little Rock, Arkansas and total of five stores through the first half of the year. We will open two stores during the third quarter - a store in Summerlin (Las Vegas), Nevada which opened in August and a store in Fresno, California which will open in October. During the fourth quarter, we will open stores in Silver Spring (Baltimore), Maryland; Toledo, Ohio; Toronto, Ontario (Canada); as well as possibly one additional location.

Total capital additions (net of tenant improvement allowances and other landlord payments) are now expected in the $130 million to $140 million range (vs. $123 million to $133 million previously) and include development costs for store openings, six remodeling and related projects, new games and maintenance capital.

Financial Outlook

We are affirming the majority of our financial outlook for fiscal 2016, which ends on January 29, 2017:

-- Total revenues of $983 million to $995 million.

-- Comparable store sales increase of 2.25% to 3.25% (vs. 3.25% to 4.25% previously).

-- Effective tax rate of approximately 36.5% to 37.5%.

-- Net income of $80 million to $85 million.
