CEO Comment


Eric Langan, President and CEO, commented: “Fiscal 2019 has started off well in what is seasonally our strongest period with record first quarter club and restaurant sales, featuring solid same-store growth in Nightclubs and good performance across the board from new clubs and new Bombshells locations.”






Same-store sales growth continued to reflect effective marketing, management and appeal, combined with a good economy.
New clubs added approximately $1.9 million from the early November acquisitions in Pittsburgh and Chicago, and the May 2018 acquisition of a club in Kappa, IL.




Same-store sales had tough year-over-year comparisons in part because of business generated in October 2017 when the Houston Astros won the pro baseball championship.
The year-over-year percentage change in same-store sales improved from the preceding quarter with December achieving the best performance in the last six months.
New units added approximately $1.4 million from Houston area locations that opened April 2018 (Pearland) and December 19th (I-10).

All references to the “company,” “we,” “our,” and similar terms include RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries, unless the context indicates otherwise.
