(HOUSTON, TX) -- Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. today reported net income $239,256 for its first quarter ended Dec. 31, 2003, compared to $94,674 for the same period a year earlier. The improvement in net income was driven by a strong upswing in its core adult nightclub business and also reflects cost control measures implemented throughout the corporation. Earnings per share were six cents in the quarter, compared with three cents a year earlier.

Rick's Cabaret, which operates upscale gentlemen's clubs and other adult-themed night clubs, reported consolidated total revenues of $3,852,033 compared to consolidated total revenues of $3,729,386 for the three months ended December 31, 2002, an increase of $122,647 or 3.29%.

"Our adult night club business appears to be returning to an upward growth pattern as business travel continues to pick up," said Eric Langan, CEO of Rick's Cabaret. "Margins are also better because of improved inventory management and food service efficiencies. We appear to be near the end of the continuing shakeout in our Internet business as part of our planned withdrawal from subscription-based activities that require expensive marketing programs. The Internet product line should improve as we place more focus on auction sites, which have low marketing costs and earn revenue on a per-transaction basis."

Same-location-same-period club revenues increased to $3,535,460 for the three months ended December 31, 2003 from $3,397,486 for same period a year earlier. Net income for same-location-same-period increased by 19.53% to $631,881 for the three months ended December 31, 2003 compared with $528,637 for same period a year earlier.

"We believe our club operations can continue to grow organically and through careful entry into markets and demographic segments with high growth potential," said Mr. Langan. "We continually research opportunities to open or acquire new clubs in locations receptive to our upscale club formula, or to form joint ventures or partnerships to reduce start-up and operating costs. We may also develop new club concepts consistent with our management and marketing skills."
