Yes B (per PM), you'll see WHEN I SOLD by my comments & CHART!!

Now, we'll see what's UP NEXT. Will the $70 (6-mo bottom per charts) hold (on the retrace)? I'm going to guess that AS OF THIS WRITING, the retrace will be DEEPER. As people start LOSING PROFITS, they tend towards PANICKING & selling soas NOT to miss out on their gains! The momo trend will be IMV downward in the near-term....

The stock KEPT CLIMBING, & that can only be sustained for so long -- without a SERIOUS MARKET DRIVER (like HUGE sustainable PROFITS). With inflation on the rise, it SHOULD CUT INTO disposable income & SO I predict(ed) -- privately -- that stocks like this would have the KINDS OF HEADWINDS that lead to a retrace. Not ALL sin stocks (tobacco, alcohol, cheaper "luxuries" that HAVE NOT had these kinds of gains!) are worth looking into...

The ONLY thing to watch HERE now is how LOW will this retrace. At some point the risk of buying & supporting has to outweighed by the PROFIT potential. That, in my view, is NOT the case here. This is a stock to SHORT in the near-term BECAUSE of the economics, inflation, disposable income, trend, risk, etc.. I'd GUESS that it breaks DOWN THROUGH $70 sometime in the next 3-6mos before it a bottom can be identified as a GOOD RISK-REWARD set-up.

Been doing this a LONG TIME. From a probability standpoint I think the stock sinks lower... But,.. TIME WILL TELL: ALWAYS DOES!! GLA

There's NOTHING to complain about!

Everything, especially since just before covid ROCKED our world's has been going SWIMMINGLY!!

So happy & LUCKY to have targeted a "sin stock" & found this gem when I did... The hardest part was taking a leap of faith on the extensive DD because, as most of you probably KNOW, fishing with sub-$10 stocks, ESPECIALLY when this broke it's THEN ~8-yr ($6.88 & $7.20) double-bottom in early-2020 took some doing!

But it was THE BEST IN CLASS "sin stock" with the most upside I could find... So I went with the THESIS & instincts. Never ever having EVER been to one of their 'restaurant/entertainment establishments', but so glad I followed my gut!

This has been a MULTIPLE winner-winner -- & there is NOTHING to complain about regarding the way they are operating & running their business -- At least from my pov!

This one gave me a TRIPLE nearly right away --- came off some EXECTING profit-taking & (as you can see with your OWN EYES: https://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui ) RAN another 8x+ MONEY!!

RCI Continues Rebound with 2Q16 EPS at $0.54 GAAP & $0.40 Non-GAAP
PR Newswire RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc.
May 10, 2016 4:05 PM
????
HOUSTON, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (RICK) today announced its performance continued to rebound in the fiscal 2016 second quarter ended March 31, 2016.

View photo
.RCI Hospitality Holdings Corporate Logo (PRNewsFoto/RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc.)
2Q16 Highlights

GAAP EPS diluted was $0.54, which included a $1.75 million tax credit. Excluding non-recurring items, non-GAAP* EPS diluted was $0.40.
In the year ago quarter, GAAP EPS was a loss of ($0.28), which included a $10.3 million pre-tax expense for a legal settlement. Non-GAAP EPS diluted was $0.44. 2Q15 was a record quarter for sales and non-GAAP earnings.
2Q16 results reflect a continued recovery in performance following a falloff after 2Q15.
2Q16 free cash flow (FCF) totaled $6.4 million, the second largest quarter on record, and $10.3 million for the first half of FY16.
As a result, RCI has revised its FY16 FCF target upward to $16-$19 million from $15-18 million.
Cash Dividend & Share Buy Backs

RCI accelerated its share buyback program in FY16, taking advantage of its strong FCF to return capital to shareholders.
Through April 30, 2016, the company purchased 566,921 common shares to date in FY16 at a cost of $5.4 million, reducing shares outstanding to 9.889 million from 10.348 million a year ago.
RCI yesterday announced a $5.0 million increase in its authorization to repurchase common shares, resulting in a total of $6.2 million available to buy back stock.
RCI also announced yesterday the company's 3Q16 $0.03 dividend will be paid June 27, 2016 to shareholders of record June 10, 2016.

A conference call to discuss these results, outlook and related matters will be held today at 4:30 PM ET

Meet Management Tonight

Eric Langan, President & CEO, invites investors to meet management and tour one of the company's top clubs.

When: Tonight, May 10, 2016, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET
Where: Rick's Cabaret New York, at 50 W. 33rd Street, between Fifth Avenue and Broadway
RSVP: With your contact information to gary.fishman@anreder.com
CEO Comment

"We are pleased 2Q16 revenues, margins, profits and free cash flow performed better than our original expectations," Mr. Langan said.

"This is especially encouraging as we were up against our largest sales quarter ever in the year ago period. Moreover, two clubs were closed in 2Q16 undergoing reformatting and remodeling.

"Our FY16 plan is to continue to grow margins, EPS and FCF on what we expect to be flattish revenues on an annual basis, while adhering to our capital allocation policy.

"Costs as a percentage of revenues are going down. Operating margin has improved two quarters in a row.

"Sales are moving in the right direction. Same store sales were nearly level with the year-ago quarter. 3Q16 should benefit from reopening of the two reformatted clubs, and we anticipate opening the first sports-themed club in Manhattan in 4Q16.

"As a result of our first six months' performance, we have increased our FY16 free cash flow target to $16-$19 million.

"The company remains committed to our capital allocation policy of using FCF to enhance shareholder value through share repurchases and dividends. As part of this policy, we will continue to evaluate the risk adjusted returns on capital expenditures or acquisitions relative to the after tax yield on free cash flow we can obtain by repurchasing our own shares.

"While opportunities may arise to acquire or open new units or pay down debt ahead of schedule, we generally believe the best allocation of our capital is the risk-adjusted, after-tax, FCF yield of buying our own shares as long as our stock stays at this low valuation relative to RCI's cash flow generation."

2Q16 Analysis

Total Revenues

Total revenues of $34.4 million increased $0.9 million or 2.8% from 1Q16, reflecting improvements in almost all major categories.
High-margin service revenues increased $0.6 million or 4.5% from 1Q16 as club customers began to spend more per visit and new marketing strategies started to prove effective. Food sales increased $0.3 million or 6.3% from 1Q16 due to Bombshells' growing business.
Same store sales of $32.9 million declined only 0.9% year over year, representing a significant increase from our performance in 1Q16 and 4Q15.
Operating Income & Margin

Income from operations was $7.6 million, or 22.0% of revenues, up from 17.1% in 1Q16.
Excluding non-recurring items, non-GAAP operating income was $7.9 million, or 23.1% of revenues, up from 19.7% in 1Q16.
The improvement in operating income as compared to 1Q16 reflects the increase in sales, in particular service revenues, as well as reduced costs as a percentage of revenues.
2Q16 Segment Analysis

Nightclubs

Sales of $29.1 million compared to $29.9 in the year ago quarter, with 36 units in operation compared to 40.
Operating income was $9.7 million, or 33.5% of revenues, compared to a loss of ($0.8) million, or (2.7%), in 2Q15.
Non-GAAP operating income was $9.8 million, or 33.7% of revenues, compared to $9.5 million, or 31.7%, in 2Q15.
Bombshells

Sales of $4.6 million compared to $4.4 million in the year ago quarter, with five units in operation in both periods.
Operating income was $0.64 million compared to $0.46 million in 2Q15.
Operating margin was 13.9% compared to 10.3% in 2Q15.
2Q16 Other Metrics

Occupancy Costs: Occupancy costs, which the company measures as a combination of rent plus interest expense, declined to 8.2% of revenues compared to 8.5% in 2Q15. The decline reflects significantly lower rent due to the acquisitions of club real estate in New York City in early 2Q16 and of Miami Gardens in 4Q15.
Effective Tax Rate: $1.75 million was deducted from income tax expense, due to the benefit of certain FICA credits not previously claimed. Excluding this deduction, RCI would have paid an effective tax rate of 36.6%.
Adjusted EBITDA & Free Cash Flow: RCI's cash generating power, as reflected by adjusted EBITDA, amounted to $9.7 million compared to $8.2 million in 1Q16. As a result, RCI generated FCF of $6.4 million compared to $3.9 million in 1Q16.
Balance Sheet (March 31, 2016 compared to December 31, 2015): Total stockholders' equity increased to $131.9 million from $128.2 million due to the increase in retained earnings partially offset by share buy backs.
*Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses certain "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G, to clarify and enhance understanding of past performance and prospects for the future. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are included in or excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We monitor non-GAAP financial measures because it describes the operating performance of the company and helps management and investors gauge our ability to generate cash flow, excluding some non-recurring charges that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Relative to each of the non-GAAP financial measures, we further set forth our rationale as follows:

Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin. We exclude from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin amortization of intangibles, gain on settlement of patron tax case, pre-opening costs, gains and losses from asset sales, gain on settlement of patron tax issue, impairment of assets, pre-opening costs, stock-based compensation charges, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs. We believe that excluding these items assists investors in evaluating period-over-period changes in our operating income and operating margin without the impact of items that are not a result of our day-to-day business and operations. While we were in litigation in the patron tax case, we also included patron taxes as an exclusion, but after settlement of the case, we no longer exclude patron taxes from operating income.
Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income per Basic Share and per Diluted Share. We exclude from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share and per basic share amortization of intangibles, gain on settlement of patron tax case, pre-opening costs, income tax expense, impairment charges, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation, litigation and other one-time legal settlements, gain on contractual debt reduction and acquisition costs, and include the Non-GAAP provision for income taxes, calculated as the tax-effect at 35% effective tax rate of the pre-tax non-GAAP income before taxes less stock-based compensation, because we believe that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand our operating activities. While we were in litigation in the patron tax case, we also included patron taxes as an exclusion, but after settlement of the case, we no longer exclude patron taxes from net income.
Adjusted EBITDA. We exclude from Adjusted EBITDA depreciation expense, amortization of intangibles, income tax, interest expense, interest income, gains and losses from asset sales, pre-opening costs, acquisition costs, litigation and other one-time legal settlements, gain on settlement of patron tax case, gain on contractual debt reduction and impairment charges because we believe that adjusting for such items helps management and investors better understand operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA provides a core operational performance measurement that compares results without the need to adjust for Federal, state and local taxes which have considerable variation between domestic jurisdictions. Also, we exclude interest cost in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. The results are, therefore, without consideration of financing alternatives of capital employed. We use Adjusted EBITDA as one guideline to assess our unleveraged performance return on our investments. Adjusted EBITDA is also the target benchmark for our acquisitions of nightclubs.
Other Notes

Starting with 1Q16, total revenues (including prior comparable periods) are being reported net of sales taxes and other revenue related taxes, RCI having chosen to early adopt new revenue accounting standards.
Free cash flow is defined as cash flows from operating activities less maintenance capex.
Unit counts are at period end.

PR Newswire
RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc.
October 8, 2015 9:00 AM


HOUSTON, Oct. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (RICK) today announced total sales at adult clubs and bars/restaurants for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2015. RCI expects to announce 4Q15 and FY15 results on December 14, 2015.

.RCI HOSPITALITY HOLDINGS INC
FY15 vs. FY14
•Total club and restaurant sales reached $142.1 million compared to $127.4 million.
•Same store sales were $110.6 million compared to $111.3 million.
•Nightclubs segment sales totaled $123.0 million compared to $121.2 million.
•Bombshells segment sales totaled $19.1 million compared to $6.2 million.

4Q15 vs. 4Q14
•Total club and restaurant sales reached $34.0 million compared to $32.7 million.
•Same store sales were $29.9 million compared to $31.6 million.
•Nightclubs segment sales totaled $29.4 million compared to $30.1 million.
•Bombshells segment sales totaled $4.6 million compared to $2.5 million.

In 4Q15, there were 45 units (40 clubs and 5 Bombshells) versus 46 in 4Q14 (43 clubs and 3 Bombshells). During 4Q15, Union Square nightclub in Fort Worth was closed.

CEO Comment
Eric Langan, President and CEO, commented, "We're pleased to see a 3.9% year over year increase in quarterly sales and an 11.6% increase in annual sales.

"This continues to demonstrate the soundness of our bar/restaurant strategy, which saw Bombshells segment sales up 84% in 4Q15 and up more than 200% in FY15, and the success of our January acquisition of Down in Texas Saloon in Austin, TX, and the May acquisition of The Seville Club of Minneapolis.

"For FY15, same store sales were nearly level, but down 5.6% for 4Q15. During the quarter, selected units in Texas were soft, but larger clubs around the country did well, with Tootsie's Cabaret up 5.5%, Rick's Cabaret New York up 5.2%, Vivid Cabaret New York up 7.6%, and Jaguars Phoenix up 12.3%.

"Over the course of the year, while customer traffic was good, spending per customer eased, perhaps reflecting general economic uncertainty. We also saw more traditional patterns in our business, where we experience a stronger first half and a softer second half. In response, we're making major adjustments in promotions and other factors."

CEO Comment

"We're pleased to have generated a 6.7% year over year increase in non-GAAP EPS on a 7.3% year over year in total revenues in 3Q15 despite particularly bad weather in Texas that affected sales there," said Mr. Langan.

"This underscores the soundness of our bar/restaurant strategy, reflecting Bombshells sales up more than threefold year over year; the success of new clubs and our recent acquisitions; and the elimination of some underperforming clubs last year.

"We are particularly pleased to have settled the Texas Patron Tax issue. This resulted in a pre-tax gain of $8.2 million, increasing GAAP EPS to $0.78. This gain will cover close to 80% of 2Q15's New York federal wage and hour class action settlement, which is being implemented as planned.

"Also during 3Q15, we continued to repurchase stock in the open market, reflecting confidence in our favorable outlook, combined with the market's undervaluation of our shares.

"We are on track for a solid Fiscal 2015. Year to date, total revenues are up 14.7%, adjusted EBITDA is up 16.9%, and GAAP EPS and non-GAAP EPS are both up 23.2%. With better weather, same store sales have begun to rebound in 4Q15. Recently, we acquired the retail plaza in Florida where Tootsie's Cabaret, our largest adult club subsidiary and the plaza's largest tenant, is located. We expect this transaction to also be accretive.

"We look forward to Fiscal 2016 as another year of continued growth. With all major outstanding issues behind us, we'll have the ability to apply even more cash generated toward the repurchase of shares."

3Q15 Analysis (all comparisons to 3Q14 unless otherwise noted)

Total Revenues
•Total revenues of $35.8 million compared to $33.3 million, up 7.3%.
•46 units in operation versus 43, up 7.0%.
•Same store sales declined 5.3% due to unusually severe rain and flooding in Texas that affected our nightclub segment, in particular, as previously announced.
•Units opened less than a year added $5.2 million from new adult clubs – Rick's Cabaret in Odessa, TX, the January acquisition of Down in Texas Saloon in Austin, TX, and the May acquisition of The Seville Club of Minneapolis, plus new Bombshells in Austin, Spring, and Houston, TX.

Operating Margin & Costs (as % of revenues)
•GAAP operating margin was 39.6% compared to 8.7%. 3Q15 benefitted from the $8.2 million gain from the settlement of the Texas Patron Tax. 3Q14 was adversely affected by $3.2 million from the settlement of lawsuits and other one-time costs.
•As reported, in May RCI reached a settlement with the State of Texas over payment of a Patron Tax on adult club customers. RCI agreed to pay $10.0 million in taxes owed in 84 equal monthly installments without interest and to remit the tax on a monthly basis going forward. Because RCI had accrued more than the $10 million owed, the company recorded an $8.2 million pre-tax gain in 3Q15.
•Non-GAAP operating margin, which excludes the gain and certain other non-operating items from both periods for more meaningful analysis, was 18.3% compared to 19.6%. 3Q14 primarily reflects growth of the Bombshells segment, whose margins, while growing, are less than that of the nightclub segment.

Adjusted EBITDA
•RCI's cash generating power for the quarter, as reflected by adjusted EBITDA, amounted to $8.2 million, up 6.1% from $7.7 million in the year ago quarter.

Business Segments (all comparisons to 3Q14 unless otherwise noted)

Nightclubs
•Includes 41 units, the same as in the year ago quarter.
•Sales of $30.6 million compared to $31.5 million, a 2.9% decline.
•Operating income of $17.3 million compared to $8.5 million.
•Adjusted operating income, which excludes the previously mentioned gain and certain other non-operating items from both periods for more meaningful analysis, was $9.1 million (29.8% of sales) compared to $11.8 million (37.3% of sales).
•In May, RCI subsidiaries acquired The Seville Club, a popular gentlemen's club in Minneapolis, for total consideration of $8.5 million.
•In August, an RCI subsidiary acquired the Miami Gardens Square retail plaza in Florida, where Tootsie's Cabaret is located. Total consideration of $15.3 million consisted of $3.975 million in cash and a 5.45%, $11.325 million bank loan.

Bombshells
•Includes five Bombshells, all in Texas, compared to two in the year ago quarter.
•Sales totaled $4.8 million, up from $1.6 million.
•Operating income improved to a profit of $369,000 compared to a loss of $170,000, a $539,000 turnaround.
•Operating margin expanded to 7.7% of revenues from (10.7%) and should increase as revenues continue to build and training costs subside.

Balance Sheet (June 30, 2015 compared to March 31, 2015)
•Assets increased 1.7% to $265.0 million, primarily due to the acquisition of The Seville Club and related real estate.
•Current liabilities declined 37.6% to $28.8 million and long-term debt increased 15.9% to $72.9 million, primarily due to the Texas Patron Tax settlement.
•Total permanent stockholders' equity increased 6.7% to $129.0 million, primarily reflecting the after-tax benefit of the gain from the Patron Tax Settlement and core profits.

Stock Buy Backs
•The Board of Directors increased its stock repurchase authorization to $10.0 million in May 2014.
•During 3Q15, RCI purchased 32,853 shares in the open market for an aggregate cost of $370,799, leaving $6.6 million of remaining authorization.
•For the nine months ended June 30, 2015, RCI purchased 225,280 shares at a cost of $2.3 million.

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses certain "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G, to clarify and enhance understanding of past performance and prospects for the future. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are included in or excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We monitor non-GAAP financial measures because it describes the operating performance of the company and helps management and investors gauge our ability to generate cash flow, excluding some recurring charges that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Relative to each of the non-GAAP financial measures, we further set forth our rationale as follows:
•Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin. We exclude from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin amortization of intangibles, gain on settlement of patron tax case, pre-opening costs, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation charges, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs. We believe that excluding these items assists investors in evaluating period-over-period changes in our operating income and operating margin without the impact of items that are not a result of our day-to-day business and operations. While we were in litigation in the patron tax case, we also included patron taxes as an exclusion, but after settlement of the case, we no longer exclude patron taxes from operating income.
•Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income per Basic Share and per Diluted Share. We exclude from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share and per basic share amortization of intangibles, gain on settlement of patron tax case, pre-opening costs, income tax expense, impairment charges, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs, and include the Non-GAAP provision for income taxes, calculated as the tax-effect at 35% effective tax rate of the pre-tax non-GAAP income before taxes less stock-based compensation, because we believe that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand our operating activities. While we were in litigation in the patron tax case, we also included patron taxes as an exclusion, but after settlement of the case, we no longer exclude patron taxes from net income.
•Adjusted EBITDA. We exclude from Adjusted EBITDA depreciation expense, amortization of intangibles, income tax, interest expense, interest income, gains and losses from asset sales, acquisition costs, litigation and other one-time legal settlements, gain on settlement of patron tax case and impairment charges because we believe that adjusting for such items helps management and investors better understand operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA provides a core operational performance measurement that compares results without the need to adjust for Federal, state and local taxes which have considerable variation between domestic jurisdictions. Also, we exclude interest cost in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. The results are, therefore, without consideration of financing alternatives of capital employed. We use Adjusted EBITDA as one guideline to assess our unleveraged performance return on our investments. Adjusted EBITDA is also the target benchmark for our acquisitions of nightclubs.

RCI Hospitality Announces 3Q15 Club & Restaurant Sales Up 6.9%
PR Newswire RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc.
15 hours ago
????
HOUSTON, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (RICK) today announced total sales at adult clubs and bars/restaurants for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2015. RCI expects to announce 3Q15 results on August 10, 2015.

View photo
.RCI HOSPITALITY HOLDINGS INC
Total club and restaurant sales reached $35.4 million compared to $33.1 million in the year ago quarter.
Same store sales were $30.2 million compared to $31.9 million in the year ago quarter.
There were 46 units in 3Q15 versus 43 in 3Q14.
Nightclub segment sales (includes adult clubs and nightclubs) totaled $30.6 million compared to $31.5 million in 3Q14.
Bombshells segment sales totaled $4.8 million compared to $1.6 million in 3Q14.
CEO Comment

Eric Langan, President and CEO, commented, "We're pleased at seeing a 6.9% year over year increase in total 3Q15 sales. This continues to demonstrate the soundness of our bar/restaurant strategy, which saw Bombshells segment sales up more than threefold year over year. On the other hand, the unusually severe rain and flooding in Texas contributed to a 5.3% decline in same store sales that affected our nightclub segment, in particular.

"Total club and restaurant sales benefitted from new adult clubs–Rick's Cabaret in Odessa, TX, the January acquisition of Down in Texas Saloon in Austin, TX, and the May acquisition of The Seville Club of Minneapolis—and from new Bombshells in Austin, Spring, and Houston, TX. In addition to weather, many units opened for more than a year faced tough comparisons against last year's strong line up of sporting events. While showing the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight at many locations helped 3Q15, it was difficult to overcome the benefit in 3Q14 of the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Finals and both the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals."

CEO Comment

"RCI performed well in 2Q15," said Mr. Langan. "We achieved record revenues and strong year over year growth in non-GAAP EPS and adjusted EBITDA, which reflects our cash generating power.

"Our performance was especially favorable since 2Q15 was affected by bad weather, especially in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where we operate 11 clubs. We also had tough comparisons to 2Q14, when we benefitted from the big football championship in the New York City area, where we have two top clubs.

"Core profitability in nightclubs expanded due to higher revenues and margin improvement. With more units and increased revenues, our Bombshells restaurant/bar segment also added positively to results.

"We repurchased more stock in the open market, reflecting confidence in our favorable outlook, combined with the market's undervaluation of our shares. We will continue to focus cash flow on buying back shares. At current levels, our own assets represent a highly attractive return.

"We are on track for a strong Fiscal 2015. Year to date, total revenues are up 18.6%, adjusted EBITDA 22.7%, and non-GAAP EPS 23.1%.

"We look forward to a solid third quarter. Many units benefitted from our showing the recent Mayweather-Pacquiao 'Fight of the Century'. Warm weather in Texas should further enhance Bombshells' patio business."

2Q15 Analysis (all comparisons to 2Q14 unless otherwise noted)

Total Revenues
•Total revenues of $37.4 million compared to $32.9 million.
•45 units (40 adult clubs and nightclubs and 5 restaurants) versus 43 (41 adult clubs and nightclubs and 2 restaurants).
•Same store sales increased 2.1%.
•Units opened less than a year added $4.4 million. This included new adult clubs – Rick's Cabaret in Odessa, TX and the recently acquired Down in Texas Saloon in Austin, TX – and new Bombshells in Austin, Spring and Houston, TX.

Operating Margin & Costs (as % of revenues)
•GAAP operating margin was (7.0%), reflecting the previously mentioned accrual, compared to 22.7%.
•Non-GAAP operating margin, which excludes the accrual and certain other non-operating items from both periods for more meaningful analysis, was 24.9% compared to 26.9%.
•Non-GAAP operating margin reflects the growth of the Bombshells segment, whose margins, while growing, are less than that of the nightclub segment. This was partially offset by the elimination of under-performing adult clubs.
•The accrual of $10.3 million pre-tax, or ($0.65) per share net of tax, represents the company's best estimate at this time of the total cost of the settlement, announced April 1, 2015, in its New York federal wage and hour class action case.

Adjusted EBITDA
•RCI's cash generating power, as reflected by adjusted EBITDA*, amounted to $10.2 million, up 10.8% from $9.2 million in the year ago quarter.

Business Segments (all comparisons to 2Q14 unless otherwise noted)

Nightclubs
•Includes the company's 38 adult clubs and two bar/nightclubs, compared to a total of 41 in the year ago quarter.
•Sales increased 2.4%, to $31.9 million from $31.2 million.
•Operating income was $114,000 compared to $9.6 million.
•Excluding the previously mentioned accrual, operating income increased 8.0% to $10.4 million and operating margin expanded to 32.6% from 30.9%.
•In May, RCI subsidiaries acquired The Seville Club, a popular gentlemen's club in Minneapolis known for its famous downtown location, as previously announced. Total consideration of $8.5 million consisted of $4.5 million for the assets of the club business and $4.0 million for its historic building.

Bombshells
•Includes the company's five Bombshells, all in Texas, compared to two in the year ago quarter.
•Sales increased nearly 3.5 times, to $4.8 million from $1.4 million.
•Operating income was $571,000 compared to a loss of $12,000.
•Operating margin expanded to 11.9% of revenues from (0.9%) and is expected to increase as revenues continue to build and training costs subside.
•A sixth Bombshells is planned for the Willowbrook area of northwest Houston. Management is identifying additional locations.

Balance Sheet (March 31, 2015 compared to December 31, 2014)
•Assets increased 4.1% to $260.5 million and long term debt increased 2.4% to $71.5 million. The increases primarily reflected the acquisition of the Down in Texas Saloon of Austin and related real estate.
•Total permanent stockholders' equity declined 2.8% to $120.8 million, primarily reflecting the NY FLSA accrual partially offset by core profits.

Stock Buy Backs
•The Board of Directors increased its stock repurchase authorization to $10.0 million in May 2014.
•During 2Q15, RCI purchased 82,811 shares of common in the open market for an aggregate cost of $840,340, leaving $7.0 million of remaining authorization.
•During the six months ended March 31, 2015, RCI purchased 192,427 shares at a cost of $1.9 million.

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses certain "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G, to clarify and enhance understanding of past performance and prospects for the future. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are included in or excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We monitor non-GAAP financial measures because it describes the operating performance of the company and helps management and investors gauge our ability to generate cash flow, excluding some recurring charges that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Relative to each of the non-GAAP financial measures, we further set forth our rationale as follows:
•Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin. We exclude from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating margin amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, pre-opening costs, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation charges, litigation and other one-time legal settlements, gain on contractual debt reduction and acquisition costs. We believe that excluding these items assists investors in evaluating period-over-period changes in our operating income and operating margin without the impact of items that are not a result of our day-to-day business and operations.


•Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income per Basic Share and per Diluted Share. We exclude from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share and per basic share amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, pre-opening costs, income tax expense, impairment charges, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation, litigation and other one-time legal settlements, gain on contractual debt reduction and acquisition costs, and include the Non-GAAP provision for income taxes, calculated as the tax-effect at 35% effective tax rate of the pre-tax non-GAAP income before taxes less stock-based compensation, because we believe that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand our operating activities.


•Adjusted EBITDA. We exclude from earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) depreciation expense, amortization of intangibles, income tax, interest expense, interest income, gains and losses from asset sales, acquisition costs, litigation and other one-time legal settlements, gain on contractual debt reduction and impairment charges because we believe that adjusting for such items helps management and investors better understand operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA provides a core operational performance measurement that compares results without the need to adjust for Federal, state and local taxes which have considerable variation between domestic jurisdictions. Also, we exclude interest cost in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. The results are, therefore, without consideration of financing alternatives of capital employed. We use Adjusted EBITDA as one guideline to assess our unleveraged performance return on our investments. Adjusted EBITDA is also the target benchmark for our acquisitions of nightclubs.

HOUSTON, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. (RICK) today announced total sales at adult clubs and restaurant/bars for the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2015. RCI expects to announce 2Q15 results on May 11, 2015.

.RCI HOSPITALITY HOLDINGS INC
Total club and restaurant sales reached $36.7 million – a quarterly record – compared to $32.6 million in the year ago quarter.
Same store sales were $29.1 million compared to $28.5 million in the year ago quarter.
There were 44 units in 2Q15 (39 adult clubs and nightclubs and 5 restaurants) versus 43 in 2Q14 (41 adult clubs and nightclubs and 2 restaurants).
Nightclub segment sales (includes adult clubs and nightclubs) totaled $31.9 million compared to $31.2 million in 2Q14.
Bombshells segment sales totaled $4.8 million compared to $1.4 million in 2Q14.
CEO Comment

Eric Langan, President and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased Fiscal 2015 continues to perform well, in line with our plans. Average revenue per unit increased 10.2% year over year. This reflected the closing of four older, under-performing units and the addition of five with higher revenues.

"Units opened less than a year benefited from new adult clubs – Rick's Cabaret in Odessa, TX and the recently acquired Down in Texas Saloon in Austin, TX. New store sales also benefited from Bombshells in Austin, Spring and Houston, TX.

"Same store sales reflected growth at many clubs. This was partially offset by adverse weather in March, especially in the Dallas-Fort Worth market, where the company has 11 locations. New York City units had difficult comparisons to the year ago quarter, when the pro football championship was played locally."

Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. Reports 1Q14 Results, Provides 2Q14 Update & Reaffirms Guidance
PR Newswire Rick's Cabaret International, Inc.
February 10, 2014 4:05 PM
HOUSTON, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. (RICK) today announced results for the 2014 first quarter ended December 31, 2013, while also providing an update on sales growth experienced to date in the second fiscal quarter (ending March 31, 2014) and reaffirming previous guidance for Fiscal 2014.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110418/MM85342LOGO)

"With the exception of the impact of unusually severe winter weather in mid-December in our important Texas markets, results are progressing according to plan with our gentlemen's clubs and restaurant/sports bars," said Eric Langan, President and CEO of Rick's Cabaret International.

"Revenues at our Rick's Cabaret and Vivid Cabaret New York clubs in New York City were excellent in January and early February, as we capitalized strategically and financially on the pro football championship game this year across the Hudson River in New Jersey.

"In addition, we continue to be engaged in a program to maximize the value of our extensive real estate, and overall we look forward to strong growth in Fiscal 2014."

First Quarter 2014 Summary

First quarter 2014 revenues of $29.4 million increased 8.4% from $27.1 million in the year ago period. First quarter 2014 results were negatively impacted by severe ice storms in mid-December in Texas, a state representing approximately 75% of the Company's units and generating approximately 50% of sales.
Rick's earned $2.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share (on a GAAP basis), compared to $2.6 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the corresponding year ago period. The weather is estimated to have resulted in approximately $500,000 in lost sales of which approximately 80% would have contributed to operating profit.
First quarter 2014 results were also impacted by planned expenses associated with the development of five units (adult gentleman's clubs Vivid Cabaret in New York City and Rick's Cabaret in Odessa, TX, and Bombshells restaurant/sports bars in Webster, Beaumont and Austin, TX).
Despite the above factors, the cash generating power of Rick's remained strong. Adjusted EBITDA* for the first quarter of 2014 was $7.3 million, approximately level with the year ago period.
The Company had 41 units open during the first quarter of 2014, including nine open less than a year.
Second Quarter 2014 Update

Second quarter 2014 sales as of the end of last week were up strongly compared to the year ago period due to:

Opening of Vivid Cabaret New York in mid-January and a second Bombshells, in Webster, TX, in late January.
An overall beneficial effect from the February 2, 2014 professional football championship.
Continued seasoning of new adult clubs and restaurant/sports bars open less than a year.
"We had a terrific success due to The Big Game this year," said Mr. Langan. "It truly was a non-stop party at both the Vivid and Rick's clubs in New York. Based on this, we expect continued success when the Big East and NCAA Regionals college basketball championships come to New York City in March."

FY14 Guidance Reaffirmed

Rick's reaffirmed its fiscal 2014 guidance of approximately $130 million in revenue, $1.70 earnings per share non-GAAP, and $1.20 earnings per share GAAP, based on a continued strong performance company-wide from existing units over the balance of the year, plus contributions from new restaurant/sports bars already opened and those planned to open.
Plans for the balance of the fiscal year include the expected opening of a new adult club (Rick's Cabaret in Odessa) and three new Bombshells currently under development (Beaumont, Austin and South Houston).
Rick's expects to have a total of 10 sports bar/restaurants open or in development by year end calendar 2014, with a cluster in Texas and others possibly outside the state in select cities having significant tourist and convention traffic.
Rick's FY14 guidance does not assume the acquisition of any gentlemen's adult clubs, although they are factored in the Company's longer term multi-year target of 20-30% revenue growth.
Conference Call

A conference call to discuss Rick's results for the first quarter of 2014, outlook and related matters will be held today, February 10, 2014 at 4:30 PM Eastern Time.

*Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses certain "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G, to clarify and enhance understanding of past performance and prospects for the future. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are included in or excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We monitor non-GAAP financial measures because it describes the operating performance of the company and helps management and investors gauge our ability to generate cash flow, excluding some recurring charges that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Relative to each of the non-GAAP financial measures, we further set forth our rationale as follows:

Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin. We exclude from GAAP operating income and GAAP operating margin amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation charges, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs. We believe that excluding these items assists investors in evaluating period-over-period changes in our operating income and operating margin without the impact of items that are not a result of our day-to-day business and operations.
Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income per Basic Share and per Diluted Share. We exclude from GAAP net income and GAAP net income per diluted share and per basic share amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, income tax expense, impairment charges, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation, litigation, loss from discontinued operations and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs, and include the Non-GAAP provision for income taxes, calculated as the tax effect at 35% effective tax rate of the pre-tax non-GAAP income before taxes less stock-based compensation, because we believe that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand our operating activities.
Adjusted EBITDA. We exclude from GAAP net income depreciation expense, amortization of intangibles, income tax, interest expense, interest income, gains and losses from asset sales, acquisition costs, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and impairment charges because we believe that adjusting for such items helps management and investors better understand operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA provides a core operational performance measurement that compares results without the need to adjust for Federal, state and local taxes which have considerable variation between domestic jurisdictions. Also, we exclude interest cost in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. The results are, therefore, without consideration of financing alternatives of capital employed. We use Adjusted EBITDA as one guideline to assess our unleveraged performance return on our investments. Adjusted EBITDA is also the target benchmark for our acquisitions of nightclubs.

Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. Reports $13.4 Million Non-GAAP Net Income For Fiscal 2013 vs. Year Ago $12.3 Million; Non-GAAP EPS Was $1.40 vs. $1.27
PR Newswire Rick's Cabaret International, Inc.
December 16, 2013 4:05 PM
HOUSTON, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rick's Cabaret International, Inc., (RICK), the publicly traded hospitality company operating gentlemen's clubs and restaurants, today reported non-GAAP* net income of $13.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2013 vs. $12.3 million in the previous year, on revenue of $112.2 million vs. $95.2 in the previous year. Non-GAAP EPS was $1.40 vs. $1.27 in the previous year. GAAP net income was $9.2 million vs. $7.6 million, with EPS of 96 cents vs. 78 cents last year.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110418/MM85342LOGO)

For its fourth quarter ended September 30, 2013, the Company GAAP net income was $1.6 million vs. $1.5 million in the previous year; non-GAAP net income was $2.5 million vs. $3.0 million last year; GAAP EPS was 17 cents for the quarter vs. 15 cents last year; non-GAAP EPS for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 27 cents vs. 31 cents last year.

"Fiscal 2013 was in many ways a transitional year for us as we moved from a recessionary model in many clubs to our more typical formats," said President and CEO Eric Langan. "This shift means that some lower margin customers are visiting the clubs less frequently, but higher margin guests are returning, which helps improve our income picture. The year was also notable for the launch of our restaurant division, which we believe will become a solid growth catalyst in the future. Going forward, we are looking at a strong 2014. We have over 40 locations open at the present time, with six more in various stages of development or construction. We continue to examine acquisition possibilities and ways to unlock the value of our real estate."

The Company will hold a conference call today at 4:30 pm ET during which Mr. Langan will discuss the fiscal year and quarterly results, and comment on the outlook for fiscal 2014. The call-in number is 877-407-8033 (International:201-689-8033), with webcast at www.ricksinvestor.com. Replay of the call is available at 877-660-6853 (ID number 13572974). In addition, following the conference call today the Company plans a "Due Diligence Reception" from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at its New York City Rick's Cabaret club (50 West 33rd St.) during which investors will get a chance to tour the club and see its operations first hand.

In the Management Discussion and Analysis section of the Company's Form 10K filed today with the SEC, the company said:

The increase in total revenues for fiscal 2013 was generated chiefly from new clubs and restaurants acquired or launched in 2013, a full year of revenues from clubs purchased in 2012, and increased sales at some existing clubs, especially XTC Cabaret in Austin, Rick's Cabaret DFW and the two cabarets in Minneapolis, MN.
Non-GAAP operating margins were 24.5 percent, level with the previous year, while GAAP operating margins increased to 19.7 percent for 2013 compared to 17.3 percent for the prior year.
The increase in both GAAP and non-GAAP net income, although slowed in part by costs associated with the opening of new restaurants, was attributed to pricing changes, lower cost of goods sold achieved through better inventory management and other efficiencies, and a decline in legal and professional expenses.
Cash flow generated from operating activities remained level with 2012, at $18.4 million.
As of September 30, 2013, the company had long-term debt of $78.6 million compared to $63.5 million a year earlier, of which $38.7 million is related to real estate. A total of $24.4 million in principally real estate debt was added as a result of 2013 acquisitions, while the Company also amortized $9.3 million of long-term debt during the year.

*Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, management uses certain "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G, to clarify and enhance understanding of past performance and prospects for the future. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's operating performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes or includes amounts that are included in or excluded from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We monitor non-GAAP financial measures because it describes the operating performance of the company and helps management and investors gauge our ability to generate cash flow, excluding some recurring charges that are included in the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Relative to each of the non-GAAP financial measures, we further set forth our rationale as follows:

Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Operating Margin. We exclude from GAAP operating income and GAAP operating margin amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation charges, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs. We believe that excluding these items assists investors in evaluating period-over-period changes in our operating income and operating margin without the impact of items that are not a result of our day-to-day business and operations.

Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income per Basic Share and per Diluted Share. We exclude from GAAP net income and GAAP net income per diluted share and per basic share amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, income tax expense, impairment charges, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation, litigation, loss from discontinued operations and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs, and include the Non-GAAP provision for income taxes, calculated as the tax effect at 35% effective tax rate of the pre-tax non-GAAP income before taxes less stock-based compensation, because we believe that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand our operating activities.

Adjusted EBITDA. We exclude from GAAP net income depreciation expense, amortization of intangibles, income tax, interest expense, interest income, gains and losses from asset sales, acquisition costs, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and impairment charges because we believe that adjusting for such items helps management and investors better understand operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA provides a core operational performance measurement that compares results without the need to adjust for Federal, state and local taxes which have considerable variation between domestic jurisdictions. Also, we exclude interest cost in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. The results are, therefore, without consideration of financing alternatives of capital employed. We use Adjusted EBITDA as one guideline to assess our unleveraged performance return on our investments. Adjusted EBITDA is also the target benchmark for our acquisitions of nightclubs.

Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. Reports 20.4% Increase In Net Income For Its Third Quarter; Revenues Rose 18.3%

Non-GAAP Net Income Rose 31.5% to $3.4 Million

PR NewswirePress Release: Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. –
HOUSTON, Aug. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. (RICK) today reported consolidated total revenues of $28.3 million for its third quarter ended June 30, 2013, an increase of 18.3 percent over the $23.9 million in the same period last year.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110418/MM85342LOGO)

Consolidated net income was $2.2 million, an increase of 20.4 percent over the $1.8 million last year; non-GAAP* net income of $3.4 million versus $2.6 million last year; GAAP earnings of 23 cents per diluted share vs. 19 cents last year; non-GAAP earnings per share of 35 cents versus 27 cents last year; GAAP income from operations this quarter was $5.7 million compared with $4.0 million in the same quarter last year while non-GAAP income from operations** was $7.0 million compared with $5.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA*** was $6.9 million, versus $5.4 million last year.

Net income was impacted by $540,000 in one time or unusual expenses of $230,000 in costs for new businesses yet to be opened, and $310,000 to settle two lawsuits. "The quarter was strong and we are particularly pleased with the performance of the Jaguars clubs and our new Bombshells Restaurant in Dallas," said Eric Langan, president and CEO of the company. "The challenges of the last four years are largely behind us, we have learned from mistakes such as the Las Vegas acquisition, and we are now on a solid growth trajectory."

Mr. Langan noted that the cost of goods sold for same-location-same-period of club operations for the third quarter was 12.9 percent, compared to 13.7 percent for the same period ended June 30, 2012. The decrease was due principally to the hiring of a corporate beverage director and the continuing of the company's national buying power for alcoholic beverages and energy drinks. Operating margin, the percentage of operating income to total revenues, was 20 percent this year versus 16.9 percent.

Mr. Langan will discuss the quarterly results in a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. EDT. The call is being webcast by PrecisionIR, www.precisionir.com and can be accessed at the Rick's Cabaret investor website, www.ricksinvestor.com or via www.InvestorCalendar.com. The toll free dial-in number is 877-407-8033; live international dial-in is 201-689-8033. The replay number is 877-660-6853 (International:201-612-7415) with Conference ID 416486 and replay is available until August 15th at 11:59 PM.

* Non-GAAP Net Income. We exclude from non-GAAP net income amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, income tax expense, impairment charges, gains and losses from asset sales, stock based compensation, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs, and include the Non-GAAP provision for income taxes, calculated as the tax-effect at 35% effective tax rate of the pre-tax non-GAAP income before taxes less stock-based compensation, because we believe that excluding such measures helps management and investors better understand our operating activities.

** Non-GAAP Operating Income. We exclude from Non-GAAP operating income amortization of intangibles, patron taxes, gains and losses from asset sales, stock-based compensation charges, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and acquisition costs. We believe that excluding these items assists investors in evaluating period-over-period changes in our operating income and operating margin without the impact of items that are not a result of our day-to-day business and operations.

*** Adjusted EBITDA. We exclude from Adjusted EBITDA depreciation expense, amortization of intangibles, income tax, interest expense, interest income, gains and losses from asset sales, acquisition costs, litigation and other one-time legal settlements and impairment charges because we believe that adjusting for such items helps management and investors better understand operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA provides a core operational performance measurement that compares results without the need to adjust for Federal, state and local taxes which have considerable variation between domestic jurisdictions. Also, we exclude interest cost in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. The results are, therefore, without consideration of financing alternatives of capital employed. We use Adjusted EBITDA as one guideline to assess our unleveraged performance return on our investments. Adjusted EBITDA is also the target benchmark for our acquisitions of nightclubs.

Our Form 10-Q contains additional details relative to each of the non-GAAP financial measures and is posted on our website at www.ricksinvestor.com.

Rick's Cabaret Agrees To Acquire Additional Adult Business In Midtown New York City Upscale Adult Nightclub Operator Will Open Its Second Manhattan Location in 2013
PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2012

NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. (NASDAQ:RICK), the publicly traded group of upscale gentlemen's clubs, has agreed to acquire a second adult business in midtown New York City. The company plans to create a new gentlemen's club on the midtown Manhattan site near Times Square.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110418/MM85342LOGO)

Rick's Cabaret said it will pay $3 million for the business, currently operating as an adult book and novelty store. The transaction calls for a payment of $1.5 million in cash and $1.5 million in six percent promissory notes that are convertible into shares of Rick's Cabaret common stock at a conversion price of $10.25. The company will also enter into a new 20-year lease for the building at the closing of the transaction.

"It is virtually impossible to find an appropriate location for an adult club in midtown Manhattan, so we are very fortunate that we have secured this rare site," said Eric Langan, President and CEO of Rick's Cabaret, which currently operates 24 clubs around the country. "It is close to Times Square, numerous hotels and businesses, and is ideal for the kind of upscale club we operate," he added, noting that the exact location of the new club will be disclosed in due course. The new club is expected to open in about a year, after renovation of the building.

The Houston-based company opened Rick's Cabaret/New York in 2005 after completely remodeling a building at 50 West 33rd Street, across from the Empire State Building and down the street from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. With a Zagat-rated steakhouse, rooftop cigar lounge and a full floor of VIP suites it is a popular spot with businessmen, celebrities, athletes and couples. Playboy.com named it the "best strip club in New York."

Closing on the transaction is subject to terms and conditions customary to a transaction of this nature.

Horrible story here...Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Rick's Cabaret in Houston after Fatal DWI Crash

Ricks Cabaret International, Inc. (MM) (NASDAQ:RICK)

Today : Monday 6 August 2012
Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Rick's Cabaret in Houston after Fatal DWI Crash The Lanier Law Firm says drink-sales policy at popular strip club led to student's death
PR Newswire

HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2012

HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- An incentive program that encourages workers to sell as many drinks as possible at Rick's Cabaret International Inc. (Nasdaq: RICK) in Houston is the subject of a lawsuit filed today by the family of an 18-year-old high school student who was killed last year by an intoxicated driver who had just left the club.

Katherine Mabel Jones, known by her friends as "Emily," was killed on March 30, 2011, when her truck was struck from behind by a car driven by Erasmo Ramirez of Houston. Ms. Jones was a popular senior at Caney Creek High School in Conroe, where she also was a member of the school's color guard.

The horrific crash dislodged the bed of Ms. Jones' truck, crushing the truck's cab. She died at a Houston hospital approximately nine hours later with extensive blunt force injuries and a subdural brain hemorrhage. Less than 30 minutes before the crash, Mr. Ramirez was thrown out of Rick's Cabaret after running out of money and refusing to pay for more drinks. Investigators determined his blood alcohol content was 0.295, more than three times the legal limit in Texas.

Witnesses told investigators that Mr. Ramirez was not using his car's headlights prior to the crash, and evidence from the accident scene indicates he was traveling approximately 130 mph. Mr. Ramirez was charged with intoxication manslaughter and later was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

According to the lawsuit filed by attorneys from The Lanier Law Firm, Rick's Cabaret requires its entertainers to pay a nightly "house charge" in order to work at the club. The lawsuit says workers are encouraged to pay the nightly fee by accumulating "credits" based on the number of drinks they sell, a policy that encourages over-serving the club's patrons, including intoxicated customers such as Mr. Ramirez.

"Emily will never be able to realize the beautiful life she had ahead of her because a strip club wanted to make more money regardless of the dangers," says Houston attorney Mark Lanier, counsel for the Jones family and founder of The Lanier Law Firm. "We're determined that those responsible for taking this young woman's life will be held accountable."

In addition to Rick's Cabaret, also named as defendants in the lawsuit are Mr. Ramirez and Houston-based Trumps Inc., which maintains the club's alcoholic beverage permit.

With offices in Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Palo Alto, The Lanier Law Firm is committed to addressing client concerns with effective and innovative solutions in courtrooms across the country. The firm is composed of outstanding trial attorneys with decades of experience handling cases involving pharmaceutical liability, asbestos exposure, intellectual property, business litigation, product liability, maritime law, bad faith insurance claims, and sports and entertainment law.
