Dave & Busters Goes Public With IPO

(Thanks to Michael Louie for the tip)

I don’t have a whole lot to add to this since I am no expert on investing like this but Dave & Busters offered up their first Initial Public Offering (IPO) today on the Nasdaq Stock Market. What this means- they have the potential to raise a lot more capital to open more stores or expand. This is a big step for any company but notable since we don’t see this sort of thing happen with arcade/FEC chains. D&B Rewards Members received the following message:

    I got the email yesterday as well. This is one of those things that makes me think. In my view, it sounds like a good move since the console market is starting to look like the so-called arcade market.

    I’m also wondering if the stocks in this market will suddenly explode outta of nowhere since more and more of the centers are popping up.

    Adam, what is you opinion on this?
