Dave & Buster's Entertainment, Inc., (NASDAQ:PLAY), ("Dave & Buster's" or "the Company"), an owner and operator of entertainment and dining venues, today announced financial results for its second quarter 2020, which ended on August 2, 2020.

The Company’s second quarter 2020 financial results were severely impacted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic when compared against the results of the second quarter of 2019. As of March 20, 2020, all of the Company’s stores were temporarily closed in compliance with state-by-state COVID-19 mitigation mandates. The Company reopened 1 store on April 30, had re-opened 26 stores by the end of May, 66 stores by the end of June, and ended the second quarter with 84 re-opened stores in 27 states. As of September 9, the Company had reopened 89 stores, all operating under reduced hours and capacity limitations as dictated by each locality, new seating and game configurations to promote social distancing, a temporarily condensed food and beverage menu, and extensive incremental cleaning and sanitation procedures to protect the health and safety of guests and team members.   

Key Second Quarter 2020 Highlights (all comparisons to second quarter 2019)

  • Revenues totaled $50.8 million, a decrease of 85 percent compared with $344.6 million
  • Comparable store sales decreased 87% (115 stores in the comp store base vs. 99 comp stores in the second quarter of 2019)
  • Net loss totaled $58.6 million, or $1.24 per share (47.1 million shares), compared with net income of $32.4 million, or $0.90 per diluted share (36.0 million diluted shares)
  • EBITDA loss totaled $46.0 million compared with EBITDA of $79.0 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss totaled $38.5 million compared with adjusted EBITDA of $86.0 million
  • Ended the quarter with $224 million in cash and equivalents, including $110.6 million in proceeds from an offering of 10.6 million common shares at a price of $10.44 per share completed in May
  • Cash burn rate (excluding effects of the May 2020 equity offering) averaged $3.3 million per week

Brian Jenkins, Dave & Buster’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “I am extremely pleased with the agility, resilience and commitment demonstrated by our team members. We have made steady progress re-opening our stores while rapidly implementing numerous initiatives that are accelerating our business recovery and positioning us for long-term success.

“By continuing to refine our lean operating model, we believe we have lowered our near-term enterprise EBITDA breakeven sales index benchmark to approximately 50 percent to 55 percent of prior year sales, compared with the 60 percent sales index we initially estimated in June.”

Jenkins concluded, “We remain confident in our brand, our people, and our plan, and optimistic about our ability to emerge in an even stronger competitive position to deliver fun to our guests and value to our shareholders.”

Among the 84 re-opened stores at the end of the second quarter, sales at the 68 re-opened comparable stores declined 42% for the two-week period ended September 7, 2020. Non-comparable store second-quarter revenue totaled $10.4 million compared with $36.5 million. Second quarter 2019 comparable store sales decreased 1.8%.

Operating loss totaled $81.1 million, or (159.6)% of revenues, compared with operating income of $46.2 million, or 13.4% of revenues.

Net loss totaled $58.6 million, or $1.24 per share (47.1 million share base) compared with net income of $32.4 million, or $0.90 per diluted share (36.0 million diluted share base).

EBITDA loss totaled $46.0 million, or (90.4)% of revenues, compared with EBITDA of $79.0 million, or 22.9% of revenues.
