Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. Reports June Nightclub Sales of $6.36 Million

HOUSTON - (July 8, 2010) - Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. [NASDAQ-GM:RICK], the nation's leading chain of upscale gentlemen's clubs, had revenues of $6.36 million at its nightclubs in June.
The June revenues brought total nightclub sales for the company's third quarter ending June 30 to $19.58 million.

Eric Langan, President and CEO of the company, said: "Generally our revenues are holding up, although we are working on improving sales at several clubs that have been impacted by market-specific economic weakness."

Companywide revenues were up 4.2 percent compared with the $6.1 million reported in 2009. Same club-same month revenues compared with 2009 were off 5.4 percent, primarily because of lower revenues at the Las Vegas Rick's Cabaret and at the Club Onyx locations in Philadelphia and Charlotte.
