The UK's largest 10-pin bowling operator said total sales rose 23.9% to £106.6m, while pre-tax profit fell from £4.8m to £2.6m.
Hemel Hempstead-headquartered Hollywood Bowl said exceptional items, including initial public offering (IPO) costs and the acquisition of Bowlplex, dented its figures.
But chief executive Stephen Burns struck an upbeat note: "We are really pleased to report our maiden results as a listed business.
"The new financial year has started well and in line with the board's expectations. From October through to the Easter holidays is a key trading period for any indoor leisure-based business and we have been pleased with the performance to date."
Like-for-like sales during the period rose 6.8% with the firm saying it has a strong pipeline of new centres in place, with Southampton due to open this month.
The firm raised £181m in September through an initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange, valuing the firm at £240m.
