A Modification. RCI announced the Company modified $15.7 million in debt due October 2024 through extending maturities of the notes to free up more cash to buy back shares. The notes will continue to be unsecured at 12% interest, with $9.1 million due October 1, 2026, interest-only payable monthly, and $6.6 million due November 1, 2027, with monthly payments of interest and principal based on a 10-year amortization.

Buying Up Shares. With the modification in place for the debt, the Company has over $15 million to buy back shares. Using the Company’s closing price on October 26 of $52.70, RCI can purchase up to 297,912 shares. If the Company were to do so, this lowers the Company’s outstanding shares to roughly 9.1 million.
