Dave & Buster’s Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLAY), which operates a chain of casual dining and leisure facilities, reported stronger-than-expected earnings and revenues for the first quarter of 2022 as comparable-store sales recovered from the recent slump.

The Dallas-based company reported a net income of $66.9 million or $1.35 per share for the April quarter, compared to $19.6 million or $0.40 per share in the same period of 2021. The latest number also came in above the consensus forecast.

“As demonstrated by our first-quarter results, our teams continue to execute on our initiatives to drive organic growth, improve profitability, and produce significant cash flow from the business. We have significant upside potential and with our continued focus on innovation, growth, and value creation, we are determined to deliver on that potential,” said Kevin Sheehan, interim chief executive officer of Dave & Buster’s Entertainment.
