CORRECTION: Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. Reports July Nightclub Sales Of $6.73 Million
HOUSTON - (August 16, 2010) – Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. [NASDAQ-GM:RICK], the nation's leading chain of upscale gentlemen's clubs, had revenues of $6.73 million at its nightclubs in July, a 3.78 percent increase over July in 2009. The company is issuing a corrected version of its July sales report today after it was discovered that some same store sales numbers were inadvertently transposed in the original press release. The corrected figures show a decline in same club revenues of 7.95 percent, rather than the flat figure as originally reported.
Same club-same month revenues were $5.92 million compared with $6.43 million in 2009.
Eric Langan, President and CEO of Rick's Cabaret, noted: "Sales were soft in the first three weeks of July but recovered in most clubs in the final 10 days of the month. We continue to see weakness in the Las Vegas market but are encouraged by reports of an uptick in reservations for major conventions scheduled for late August and September. Our new clubs in Fort Worth and Austin are beginning to contribute as anticipated."
