Keeps Getting Clubs. RCI Hospitality announced last week the acquisition of Heartbreakers Adult Nightclub for $9 million. The 5-stage, 23,000 square foot Heartbreakers club is located at 3200 Gulf Freeway, Dickinson, TX, and the Company acquired the club using $4.0 million in cash and $5.0 million in a 15-year, 6% real estate seller financing note. The Company did not release any financials for the club but we would expect the price to be within RCI’s 3-5x adjusted EBITDA for the club.
Area Around the Club. Dickinson, Texas had a population of 20,870 in 2020 according to Data USA with a median household income of $70,468. The median household income is a positive for RICK in our view as it is higher than the median income in the United States ($67,521), which we believe provides the Company with higher spending customers as the population has higher disposable income. The location of the club is also a positive due to it being near a freeway, which provides visibility to potential customers. Established in 1986, Heartbreakers is the number one adult entertainment venue in the Galveston, Texas, area.
