Rick's Cabaret New York
Founded in 1983, Rick's Cabaret pioneered in the creation of elegant gentlemen's clubs featuring beautiful topless dancers and high quality restaurant service. Rick's Cabaret went public in 1995 and is listed on The NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol RICK. The Company has built powerful brand name awareness for its upscale environment and enjoyable adult entertainment. Anna Nicole Smith met her oil billionaire husband while dancing at Rick's Cabaret and many of our performers have become Penthouse Pets and Playboy Playmates.

President & CEO Eric Langan joined Rick's Cabaret in 1998 and has led the Company since 1999, steadily expanding operations and growing revenues and profit. Mr. Langan has positioned the Company at the top of the gentlemen's club sector by creating strong financial controls for a business model that offers a pleasurable ambiance and a conscientious approach to customer service patterned after the “concierge model” of the top Las Vegas casinos.

Forbes named Rick's Cabaret one of America's 200 Best Small Companies since 2008. Rick's Cabaret has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, MarketWatch, Corporate Board Member, Smart Money, USA Today, The New York Daily News and other publications. The Rick's Cabaret-NYC Steakhouse is listed in Zagat's New York Nightlife and included in the TONY 100 list of fine Manhattan dining establishments by Time Out New York. Options in RICK are traded on the Chicago Board of Options Exchange (CBOE).

Investors are attracted by strong cash flow, consistent profitability, effective internal financial controls developed by management, local laws that create high barriers to entry by potential competitors, and execution of a roll-up strategy in the consolidating gentlemen's club industry. In recent years the Company has acquired nightclubs in major markets, including New York City, Miami, Philadelphia, Dallas-Ft. Worth and Las Vegas.
