Bowlero Corp. Announces $200M Share Repurchase Program

RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bowlero Corp. (NYSE: BOWL), the world’s largest owner and operator of bowling centers, today announced that its board of directors has approved a repurchase program for up to $200 million of its outstanding shares of Class A common stock and warrants through February 3, 2024. Bowlero plans to repurchase its shares or warrants either in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions.

“The authorization to buy back up to $200 million of its shares of Class A common stock and warrants provides the Company with another mechanism to maximize long-term value for our shareholders,” said Tom Shannon, Bowlero Corp’s Chairman and CEO. “We remain confident in our strategy and believe that our current stock price represents a significant discount to the intrinsic value of the Company. We plan to continue to invest in the acquisition, building and converting of bowling centers, and the repurchase program announced today provides us with additional flexibility to create long-term value for investors. We remain committed to a disciplined capital allocation strategy, including investments in our strategic priorities and return of capital to our shareholders.”

Share and warrant repurchases and the timing thereof will depend upon market conditions, corporate liquidity requirements and priorities, debt agreement limitations and other factors as may be considered in the Company’s sole discretion. The share repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase any particular amount of Class A common stock or warrants and may be suspended or discontinued at any time without notice.
