UBS Warburg and Deutsche Bank will launch a $165 million high-yield bond deal and syndicate a $30 million revolver to back the buyout of Dave & Buster's by senior management and Investcorp. The acquisition price is $255 million, including the assumption of Dave & Buster's debt, explained an Investcorp spokesman, who declined comment on the structure of the financing. A banker familiar with the deal said the company is more interested in long-term money than with using bank debt to fund the deal. Pricing has not yet been decided. "It is likely UBS and Deutsche Bank will look to bring in a couple of Investcorp relationship banks on the revolver," said the banker.
