1Q23 Preliminary Revenues. RCI reported preliminary 1Q23 revenue for the Nightclubs and Bombshells. Total revenues of $69.2 million were up 13.3% year-over-year. Y-o-Y SSS were off 2.7%, but were up 8.6% compared to 1Q20, or prior to any COVID related impacts.
Nightclubs. Revenue of $55.9 million was up 20.7% y-o-y, with SSS up 1.2% y-o-y and up 10.0% from 1Q20. Nightclub sales remained high, reflecting strong contributions from acquisitions, increased VIP spend at many of the northern clubs, and reopened/reformatted clubs, all of which more than offset intermittent softness at some blue collar clubs compared to a year-ago.
