Stocks in this article: RICK

HOUSTON  , Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Rick's Cabaret International, Inc.  (NASDAQ:RICK), the publicly traded group of upscale gentlemen's clubs, announced today its subsidiary  Jaguars Acquisitions, Inc. (JAI) and certain other subsidiaries have completed the acquisitions of nine gentlemen's clubs in Texas and Arizona. Closing on the remaining two clubs in the 11-venue transaction is expected to take place shortly after final permitting has been obtained from local jurisdictions.

The subsidiaries have agreed to pay a total of $26 million for the 11 clubs. The Rick's Cabaret subsidiaries are paying $4 million in cash for the clubs, with the remainder to be paid through seller notes at 9.5 percent interest payable over 12 years. The seller notes may be prepaid after five years. An additional $10 million will be paid for associated real estate, with closing on the real estate transactions expected to take place within the next two weeks. 

The locations being purchased are the Jaguars Clubs in Phoenix, AZ and in Lubbock, Odessa, El Paso, Harlingen, Tye, Edinburg, Beaumont and Longview in Texas. The transaction also includes a new club in Lubbock that was recently opened as a Rick's Cabaret and another in Odessa that is being developed and is expected to open shortly after the transaction has fully closed.  

Eric Langan , President and CEO of Rick's Cabaret International, Inc., said the acquisition price is well within the cost parameters generally followed by the company when making acquisitions.

Under terms of the purchase agreement, in the event the State of Texas seeks to enforce or attempts to collect obligations or liabilities due from the acquired clubs under the Texas Patron Tax or "Pole Tax," the promissory note for the clubs will be reduced according to a formula that could lower the price by as much as $6 million.
