Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. Agrees To Purchase Remaining Interest In New Topless Nightclub In Los Angeles County And Will Now Own 100%

LOS ANGELES, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. (NASDAQ:RICK) has agreed to purchase through a subsidiary the remaining half of a new topless nightclub in Los Angeles County and will now own 100 percent of the venue.


Under terms of a definitive agreement signed this week, a subsidiary of Rick's Cabaret will use 100,000 restricted shares of common stock of Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. to purchase the 50 percent of the 12,000 square foot club it did not already own.

The club, which is expected to open in June, is located near major Los Angeles area freeways. The company said the exact location would be announced at a later date.

Closing on the transaction will take place five business days after Mr. Westlund has obtained all necessary permits and authorizations needed to conduct an adult entertainment business at the venue, including any sexually oriented business permits and licenses. 

"We are delighted that we will own 100 percent of this exciting new venue," said Eric Langan , President and CEO of Rick's Cabaret, which has 37 adult clubs, bars and restaurants around the country.  "We always prefer to own 100 percent of our venues. This club allows us to enter the California market, giving us a true coast-to-coast network of clubs."  

The agreement also provides for a long-term lease for the property with an option to purchase it at a later date.
