Dave & Buster's Reportedly Draws $1.1 Billion Bid From Roark Capital Group

The auction of Dave & Buster's Inc. has taken another twist, as two private-equity firms emerged as potential buyers of Dave & Buster's Inc. Roark Capital Group in recent weeks offered nearly $1.1 billion, including debt, for Dave & Buster's, said people familiar with the matter. The bid from Roark Capital came after discussions Dave & Buster's had with another potential buyer broke down, they said. Onex Corporation (TSX:OCX) and Cineplex Inc. (TSX:CGX) had been seen as the front-runner to buy Dave & Buster's after it offered more than $1 billion for Dave & Buster's, people familiar with the matter said last month. In addition, Permira Advisers Ltd. is in the early stages of weighing a bid for Dave & Buster's, some of the people said. Dave & Buster's could ultimately decide against a full sale, and instead launch an initial public stock offering sometime after Labor Day, some of the people said. Dave & Buster's canceled a previously planned IPO in October 2012, citing market conditions. Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE:APO) made an unsuccessful offer for Dave & Buster's earlier this year. Dave & Buster's then held extensive negotiations with Onex and Ciniplex.
