Will They Take Tokens or Power Cards?
In a subscriber-only story from Daily Deal, looks like Northwest Dallas-based Dave & Buster's is for sale to the highest bidder -- or, barring that, whoever wants it. Says the piece, Wellspring Capital Management LLC's decision to offload D&B's comes as a surprise to bankers and execs who don't think the market's strong enough for such a big-dollar purchase. Wellington paid nearly $400 mil two years ago to take the chain private and first tried to sell the chain last August for about $600 mil, then pulled it from auction when it could find no takers. I'd like to buy the chain, but using only Skee-Ball tickets. --Robert Wilonsky
