CEO Comment


Eric Langan, President and CEO, commented: “Fiscal 2018 sales have continued to do well with record third quarter club and restaurant sales and strong same-store sales.


“Nightclubs increased 8.2% in total sales and 5.1% on a same-store basis, while Bombshells grew 54.5% in total sales and 4.1% on a same-store basis. Last year’s two major acquisitions, Scarlett’s Cabarets in St. Louis and Miami, which occurred during 3Q17, transitioned into same-store sales over the course of 3Q18.


“New units added $2.7 million in sales. This reflected a full quarter of a Bombshells Restaurant & Bar on Highway 290 in Houston that opened in 4Q17, nearly a full quarter of another Bombshells in the Houston suburb of Pearland that opened in early April, and the late May acquisition of Kappa Kabanna, a small, well known gentlemen’s club in Central Illinois.





“Our locations, in particular, our six Bombshells sports bars in Texas, benefited from increased traffic created by the Houston Rockets getting into the NBA Western Conference Finals, and the champion Houston Astros’ start of the professional baseball season.


“During 3Q18, an RCI subsidiary acquired Kappa Kabanna in Kappa, IL for $1.5 million ($0.5 million in cash and $1.0 million in 8% seller financing), including its real estate. The purchase was in line with our capital allocation strategy, which calls for valuations of 3-4x trailing 12-month EBITDA and cash on cash returns of at least 25-33%. Thrillist.com calls Kappa Kabanna one of the top gentlemen’s clubs in Illinois. We also decided to close Club Onyx Philadelphia after numerous attempts to improve results. We are now actively marketing the property.


“To sum up, our existing portfolio of clubs and restaurants continues to do well. We are in active discussions with prospective club acquisition targets. We also look forward to opening two more Bombshells in calendar 2018 and two more in calendar 2019, for a total of eight locations in the Greater Houston market and 10 in Texas.”
