Dave & Buster's files for IPO

DALLAS Dave & Buster's Holdings Inc., parent of the 49-unit dining and entertainment chain, on Friday filed for an initial public offering of stock for up to $170 million.

Dave & Buster's did not indicate in its filing with federal regulators how many shares it would offer or an anticipated per-share price.

The company said J.P. Morgan Securities and Jefferies & Co. would be underwriting the IPO.
