NOTE ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements include, among other things, statements regarding plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts. Forward-looking statements may appear throughout this report, including without limitation, in Part I, Item 2 "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by words such as "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "predicts," "projects," "will be," "will continue," "will likely result," and similar expressions. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties, which could cause our actual results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, those discussed in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and those discussed in other documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Important factors that in our view could cause material adverse affects on our financial condition and results of operations include, but are note limited to, the risks and uncertainties related to our future operational and financial results, competitive factors, the timing of the openings of other clubs, the availability of acceptable financing to fund corporate expansion efforts, our dependence on key personnel, the ability to manage operations and the future operational strength of management, and the laws governing the operation of adult entertainment businesses. We undertake no obligation to revise or publicly release the results of any revision to any forward-looking statements, except as required by law. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.
 
As used herein, the "Company," "we," "our," and similar terms include Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. and its subsidiaries, unless the context indicates otherwise.

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q of Regulation S-X. They do not include all information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. However, except as disclosed herein, there has been no material change in the information disclosed in the notes to the consolidated financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2012 included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The interim unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with those consolidated financial statements included in the Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments, have been made. Operating results for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending September 30, 2013.

2. RECENT ACCOUNTING STANDARDS AND PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
In June 2011 new guidance was issued regarding the disclosure of the components of comprehensive income. This guidance gives the entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In either option, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This guidance eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. This guidance does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. This guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and is required to be adopted retrospectively. The Company has adopted this guidance beginning with the Form 10-Q for the quarter ending December 31, 2012.
 
In July 2012 new guidance was issued regarding the impairment testing related to indefinite-lived intangible assets. This guidance permits an entity to make a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset, other than goodwill, is impaired. If an entity concludes, based on an evaluation of all relevant qualitative factors, that it is not more likely than not that the fair value of an indefinite-lived intangible asset is less than its carrying amount, it will not be required to perform the quantitative impairment for that asset. This guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after September 15, 2012. The Company has early-adopted this guidance beginning with the Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012. The implementation of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

3. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Following are certain remarkable accounting principles and disclosures.
 
Marketable Securities
 
Marketable securities at March 31, 2013 consist of bond funds. ASC 320, Investments in Debt and Equity Securities, requires certain investments be recorded at fair value or amortized cost. The appropriate classification of the investments in marketable equity is determined at the time of purchase and re-evaluated at each balance sheet date. As of June 30, 2013, the Company's marketable securities were classified as available-for-sale, which are carried at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses reported as other comprehensive income within the stockholders' equity section of the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. The cost of marketable securities sold is determined on a specific identification basis. The fair value of marketable securities is based on quoted market prices based on Level 1 inputs — quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets. There have been no realized gains or losses related to marketable securities for the nine month periods ended June 30, 2013 or 2012.  Marketable securities held at June 30, 2013 have a cost basis of approximately $500,000.
 
Fair Value Accounting
 
In December 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157 (ASC 820), Fair Value Measurements. SFAS No. 157 clarifies the definition of fair value, describes methods used to appropriately measure fair value, and expands fair value disclosure requirements, but does not change existing guidance as to whether or not an instrument is carried at fair value. For financial assets and liabilities, ASC 820 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, which required the Company to adopt these provisions in fiscal 2009. For nonfinancial assets and liabilities, SFAS No. 157 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008, which required the Company to adopt these provisions in fiscal 2010.
 
US GAAP establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in the valuation methodologies in measuring fair value:
 
 
·
Level 1 – Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
 
 
 
 
·
Level 2 – Include other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.
 
 
 
 
·
Level 3 – Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.
 
The fair value hierarchy also requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.
 
The Company's derivative liabilities have been measured principally utilizing Level 2 inputs.

3. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - continued
 
The Company classifies its marketable securities as available-for-sale, which are reported at fair value. Unrealized holding gains and losses, net of the related income tax effect, if any, on available-for-sale securities are excluded from income and are reported as accumulated other comprehensive income in stockholders' equity. Realized gains and losses from securities classified as available for-sale are included in income. The Company measures the fair value of its marketable securities based on quoted prices for identical securities in active markets, or Level 1 inputs. As of June 30, 2013, available-for-sale securities consisted of the following:

In accordance with ASC Topic 320, Investments — Debt and Equity Securities , the Company reviews its marketable securities to determine whether a decline in fair value of a security below the cost basis is other than temporary. Should the decline be considered other than temporary, the Company writes down the cost basis of the security and include the loss in current earnings as opposed to an unrealized holding loss. No losses for other than temporary impairments in the Company's marketable securities portfolio were recognized during the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Discontinued Operations
 
In March 2011, the Company made the decision to sell its Las Vegas location and, in April 2011, sharply reduced its operations in order to eliminate losses as it sought a buyer for the club.   The Company believes that it has done everything possible to make this location viable since its acquisition in 2008 and now believes it is in its shareholders' best interests not to continue these efforts. The club was shuttered and the landlord took over the property in June 2011. Therefore, this club is recognized as a discontinued operation in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

3. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - continued
 
In August 2011, the Company sold a controlling portion of the membership interest in the entity that previously operated its Rick's Cabaret in Austin, Texas. Accordingly, the Company deconsolidated the subsidiary and carried it as an equity-method investment. The Company had not received any cash flows from the entity since the sale and did not anticipate any in the near future. A new nightclub has not been opened in the space since the Company sold its controlling interest. In June 2013, the Company sold the remaining portion of its membership interest in the entity to a third party and recognized a gain of approximately $2,300 on the sale. Accordingly, the club is recognized as a discontinued operation in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.   
 
We closed our Divas Latinas club in Houston during September 2010. This club is recognized in discontinued operations.

4. STOCK OPTIONS AND STOCK-BASED EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION
 
Employee and Director Stock Option Plans
 
In 1995, the Company adopted the 1995 Stock Option Plan (the "1995 Plan") for employees and directors. In August 1999, the Company adopted the 1999 Stock Option Plan (the "1999 Plan") and in 2010, the Company's Board of Directors approved the 2010 Stock Option Plan (the "2010 Plan") (collectively, "the Plans").  The 2010 Plan was approved by the shareholders of the Company at the 2011 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and an amendment to the 2010 Plan increasing the number of shares to 800,000 was approved by the shareholders at the 2012 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. The options granted under the Plans may be either incentive stock options, or non-qualified options. The Plans are administered by the Board of Directors or by a compensation committee of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors has the exclusive power to select individuals to receive grants, to establish the terms of the options granted to each participant, provided that all options granted shall be granted at an exercise price equal to at least 85% of the fair market value of the common stock covered by the option on the grant date and to make all determinations necessary or advisable under the Plans.
 
The compensation costs recognized for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 were $281,745 and $12,381, respectively, and were $845,235 and $33,016 for the nine months then ended, respectively.  There were no stock option exercises for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 or 2012, respectively. 
 
On June 18, 2013, the Company issued 10,000 options to an employee.  These options become exercisable in June 2014, have a strike price of $8.70 per share and expire in June 2015.  The fair value of these options were estimated to be $11,670 at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model using the following weighted average assumptions:
 
Volatility

%
Expected life
 
1.5 years

4. STOCK OPTIONS AND STOCK-BASED EMPLOYEE COMPENSATION - continued
 
On June 27, 2012, the Company issued 100,000 options to the Company's directors.  These options became exercisable in June 2013, have a strike price of $8.78 per share and expire in June 2014.  The fair value of these options were estimated to be $160,488 at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model using the following weighted average assumptions:
 
Volatility
 
37
%
Expected life
 
1.5 years
 
Expected dividend yield
 
-
 
Risk free rate
 
0.31
%
 
The Black-Scholes option valuation model was developed for use in estimating the fair value of traded options, which have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. In addition, option valuation models require the input of highly subjective assumptions including the expected stock price volatility. Because changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate, in management's opinion, the existing models do not necessarily provide a reliable single measure of the fair value of its employee stock options.  The expected life of awards granted represents the period of time that they are expected to be outstanding. The Company determined the initial expected life based on a simplified method in accordance with ASC 718 (also formerly SAB No. 110, Shared-Based Payment), giving consideration to the contractual terms, vesting schedules and pre-vesting and post-vesting forfeitures. The Company has utilized the simplified method in accordance with ASC 718 for the following reasons.  Earlier in the Company's existence, longer-term options (generally 5-year lives) were issued to employees, Directors and outsiders. In more recent years, option terms have generally become shorter (1-3 year lives) and options were issued principally to management and Directors. Then in 2010, short-term options (2-year lives) were issued to Directors, management and a substantial number of employees. Due to the changes in the terms of the option grants and the type of persons receiving the options, we believe that the historical exercise data may no longer provide a reasonable basis upon which to estimate expected term. Therefore, the Company believes that the use of the simplified method for determining the expected term of the Company's options has been appropriate.

The Debenture has a term of two years, is convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion price of $10.00 per share (subject to adjustment), and has an annual interest rate of 10%, with one initial payment of interest only due July 24, 2013, and thereafter, the principal amount is payable in six equal quarterly principal payments of $500,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest. Six months after the issue date of the Debenture, we have the right to redeem the Debenture if the Company's common stock has a closing price of $13.00 (subject to adjustment) for 20 consecutive trading days. The Warrant has an exercise price of $10.00 per share (subject to adjustment) and expires on January 24, 2015. In the event there is an effective registration statement registering the shares of common stock underlying the Warrant, the Company has the right to require exercise of the Warrant if the Company's common stock has a closing price of $13.00 (subject to adjustment) for 20 consecutive trading days. The Company sold the Debenture and Warrant to the investor in a private transaction and received consideration of $3,000,000. Brean Capital, LLC acted as exclusive placement agent for the transaction and received a placement fee of 6% of the gross proceeds raised.

8.      EARNINGS PER SHARE ("EPS")
 
The Company computes earnings per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. ASC 260 provides for the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of the Company. 
 
Potential common stock shares consist of shares that may arise from outstanding dilutive common stock warrants and options (the number of which is computed using the "treasury stock method") and from outstanding convertible debentures (the number of which is computed using the "if converted method").

9.     ACQUISITIONS
 
Fiscal 2013
 
In connection with the acquisition of the Foster Clubs, as explained in Note M in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Jaguars Holdings, Inc. ("JHI"), entered into a Commercial Contract (the "Real Estate Agreement"), which agreement provided for JHI to purchase the real estate where the Foster Clubs are located. The transactions contemplated by the Real Estate Agreement closed on October 16, 2012. The purchase price of the real estate was $10.1 million (discounted to $9.6 million as explained below) and was paid with $350,000 in cash, $9.1 million in mortgage notes, including the assumption of approximately $4.2 million in notes, and an agreement to make a one-time payment of $650,000 in twelve years that bears no interest. The note bears interest at the rate of 9.5%, is payable in 143 equal monthly installments and is secured by the real estate properties. The Company has recorded a debt discount of $431,252 related to the one-time payment of $650,000. The Company reduced previously recognized goodwill because the purchase of the Foster Clubs operations and the real estate were considered to be one purchase transaction with multiple closings and were included in the same purchase agreement.

On December 6, 2012, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, RCI Holdings, Inc. ("RCI Holdings"), entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the "Real Estate Agreement") with Regent 33rd Corp. ("Regent"). Regent owns the building located at 50 West 33rd Street, New York, New York where an adult cabaret owned by the Company's subsidiary, RCI Entertainment (New York), Inc. ("RCI New York"), is located. Regent currently leases the entire building to RCI New York under a lease agreement with a term that ends in 2023. The Real Estate Agreement provides for RCI Holdings to acquire the building from Regent for aggregate consideration of $23,000,000. Pursuant to the agreement, as amended RCI Holdings has paid $750,000 cash in escrow, $375,000 of which was released to Regent. RCI Holdings also paid Regent a non-refundable sum of $92,708.33, which amount will not be credited towards the purchase price. The Real Estate Agreement is scheduled to close by August 8, 2013, at which time the escrow funds will be released to Regent, and RCI Holdings will pay Regent the balance of the purchase price, under the terms and conditions of the Real Estate Agreement. Also at closing, Regent will assign to RCI Holdings the lease agreement under which RCI New York leases the building.
 
On March 4, 2013, the Company completed the acquisition of a second adult business in midtown Manhattan. The Company plans to open a new gentlemen's club at the 61 West 37th Street location, just east of Sixth Avenue. Rick's Cabaret paid $3 million for the business, with $1.5 million paid in cash and the remaining $1.5 million in six percent promissory notes convertible into shares of Rick's Cabaret common stock at a conversion price of $10.25. The notes call for monthly payments of $16,653, including principal and interest, and mature in 120 months. At the option of the noteholders, the principal amount of the notes and the accrued but unpaid interest thereon may be converted into shares of the Company's common stock at $10.25 per share. The notes are redeemable by the Company at any time if the closing price of its common stock for 20 consecutive trading days is at least $13.47 per share.

The Company recognizes interest accrued in interest expense and penalties in operating expenses. During the nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company recognized approximately $48,000 and $16,000, respectively, in penalties. The Company or one of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, and various states.  The last three years remain open to tax examination.

11. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
Legal Matters
 
Beginning January 1, 2008, the Company's Texas clubs became subject to a new state law requiring each club to collect and pay a $5 surcharge for every club visitor.  A lawsuit was filed by the Texas Entertainment Association ("TEA"), an organization to which the Company is a member, alleging the fee amounts to be an unconstitutional tax.  On March 28, 2008, a State District Court Judge in Travis County, Texas ruled that the new state law violates the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is therefore invalid.  The judge's order enjoined the State from collecting or assessing the tax.  The State appealed the Court's ruling.  In Texas, when cities or the State give notice of appeal, it supersedes and suspends the judgment, including the injunction.  Therefore, the judgment of the District Court cannot be enforced until the appeals are completed.  Given the suspension of the judgment, the State gave notice of its right to collect the tax pending the outcome of its appeal but took no affirmative action to enforce that right.  On June 5, 2009, the Court of Appeals for the Third District (Austin) affirmed the District Court's judgment that the Sexually Oriented Business ("S.O.B.") Fee violated the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution but on August 26, 2011, the Texas Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the Court of Appeals, ruling that the SOB Fee does not violate the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and remanded the case to the District Court to determine whether the fee violates the Texas Constitution.

TEA appealed the Texas Supreme Court's decision to the U.S. Supreme Court (regarding the constitutionality of the fee under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution), but the U.S. Supreme Court denied the appeal on January 23, 2012. Subsequently, the case was remanded to the District Court for consideration of the remaining issues raised by TEA. On June 28, 2012, the District Court in Travis County held a hearing on TEA's Texas Constitutional claims and on July 9 entered an order finding that the tax was a constitutional Occupations Tax. The Court denied the remainder of TEA's constitutional claims. TEA is now in the process of appealing this new decision to the Texas Third Court of Appeals.
 
The Company has not made any payments of these taxes since the first quarter of 2009 and plans not to make any such payments while the case is pending in the courts. However, the Company will continue to accrue and expense the potential tax liability on its financial statements, so any ultimate negative ruling will not have any effect on its consolidated income statement and will only affect the consolidated balance sheet. If the final decision of the courts is ultimately in the Company's favor, as it believes it will be, then the Company will record a one-time gain of the entire amount previously expensed.
 
Since the inception of the tax, the Company has paid more than $2 million to the State of Texas under protest for all four quarters of 2008 and the first quarter of 2009, expensing it in the consolidated financial statements (except for two locations in Dallas where the taxes have not been paid, but the Company is accruing and expensing the liability).  For all subsequent quarters, as a result of the Third Court's 2009 decision, the Company has accrued the tax, but not paid the State.  Accordingly, as of June 30, 2013, the Company has approximately $12.3 million in accrued liabilities for this tax.  Patron tax expense amounted to approximately $746,000 and $726,000 for the quarters ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
 
The Company's Texas clubs have filed a separate lawsuit against the State in which the Company raises additional challenges to the statute imposing the fee or tax, demanding repayment of the taxes the Company has paid under this statute. The courts have not yet addressed these additional claims.  If the Company is successful in the remaining litigation, the amount the Company has paid under protest should be repaid or applied to any future, constitutional admission tax or other Texas state tax liabilities.
 
The Company's subsidiary that operated the club in Las Vegas has recently been audited by the Department of Taxation of the State of Nevada for sales and other taxes.  The audit period was from the date of opening in September 2008 through July 31, 2010.  As a result of the audit, the Department of Taxation contends that the Company's Las Vegas subsidiary owes approximately $2.1 million, including penalties and interest, for Las Vegas Live Entertainment Taxes.  The Company does not believe it is subject to the Live Entertainment Tax and is protesting the audit results.  Accordingly, the Company has not accrued the contingent liability in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.  It is unknown at this time whether the resolution of this uncertainty will have a material effect on the Company's operations.
 
The Company has been a defendant in a federal court, pending since March 30, 2009, in the Southern District of New York relating to claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York's wage and hour laws. Discovery is now complete and motions for summary judgment are pending. While Plaintiffs do not specifically allege the amount of monetary relief sought in their Complaint, Plaintiffs have alleged that they are seeking judgment equal to any unpaid wages, liquidated damages, interest, costs and attorneys fees pursuant to the FLSA and New York Labor Law. The Company denies any liability in this matter and is vigorously defending the allegations. The Company has asserted counterclaims and affirmative defenses for offset and unjust enrichment.

In September 2011, the Company's subsidiary, RCI Entertainment Las Vegas, Inc. ("RCI Las Vegas") and Rick's Cabaret International were sued by the lessor of its club in Las Vegas for breach of contract and other issues relating to RCI Las Vegas' lease. This suit was settled in June 2013 and the Company paid $150,000 to settle all claims.
 
The Company settled a bodily injury lawsuit during the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  The Company paid $160,000 of the settlement after insurance proceeds.
 
In September 2011, the Company and its CEO were sued in District Court in Travis County Texas by a shareholder for damages as a result of the plaintiff's alleged inability to sell shares on the open market due to restrictive legends which the plaintiff alleges that the defendants failed to remove in a timely manner. On March 21, 2012, the Company agreed to a settlement in the case. The terms of the settlement provide for the payment of $2,650,000 to the plaintiff and a full and complete release of the Company and the Company's CEO. The settlement amount will be paid with approximately $850,000 in insurance proceeds and a cash payment from the Company of approximately $1.8 million. No admission of liability was made by the Company. The parties completed the settlement documents and an Order of Dismissal was entered into on April 19, 2012. The $1.8 million has been expensed in the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

12.          SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
On August 1, 2013, the Company borrowed $1 million from a lender.  Simultaneously, the Company modified a mortgage agreement and an existing promissory note with the lender for a $1 million loan already on the Company’s books.  The original $1 million was due interest only until April 2014. The new amended and restated promissory note in the amount of $2 million bears interest at 10% per annum and is payable interest only, through July 2015 at which time the note becomes payable $33,202 per month until the remaining principal and interest are due on July 31, 2022. The note is collateralized by certain real estate owned by the Company.
 
In July 2013, the Company refinanced a maturing 7% $1.9 million mortgage payable to an individual, replacing it with commercial bank debt of $1.5 million.  The new bank debt bears interest at 1.5% over prime, with a floor of 6.25% per annum, and is payable $15,090 per month, with a balloon payment after five years.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  GAAP consists of a set of standards issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) and other authoritative bodies in the form of FASB Statements, Interpretations, FASB Staff Positions, Emerging Issues Task Force consensuses and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Statements of Position, among others.  The Company has updated references to GAAP in this Form 10-Q to reflect the guidance in the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”).  The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires our management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities.  On a regular basis, we evaluate these estimates, including investment impairment.  These estimates are based on management’s historical industry experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.  Actual results may differ from these estimates.
 
Accounts and Notes Receivable
 
Trade accounts receivable for the nightclub operation is primarily comprised of credit card charges, which are generally converted to cash in two to five days after a purchase is made.  The media division’s accounts receivable is primarily comprised of receivables for advertising sales and Expo registration. The Company’s accounts receivable-  other is comprised of employee advances and other miscellaneous receivables. The long-term portion of notes receivable are included in other assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. The Company recognizes interest income on notes receivable based on the terms of the agreement and based upon management’s evaluation that the notes receivable and interest income will be collected. The Company recognizes allowances for doubtful accounts or notes when, based on management judgment, circumstances indicate that accounts or notes receivable will not be collected.
 
 
23
 
Inventories
 
Inventories include alcoholic beverages, food, and Company merchandise. Inventories are carried at the lower of cost, average cost, which approximates actual cost determined on a first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) basis, or market.
 
Property and Equipment
 
Property and equipment are stated at cost. Provisions for depreciation and amortization are made using straight-line rates over the estimated useful lives of the related assets and the shorter of useful lives or terms of the applicable leases for leasehold improvements. Buildings have estimated useful lives ranging from 29 to 40 years. Furniture, equipment and leasehold improvements have estimated useful lives between five and 40 years. Expenditures for major renewals and betterments that extend the useful lives are capitalized. Expenditures for normal maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. The cost of assets sold or abandoned and the related accumulated depreciation are eliminated from the accounts and any gains or losses are charged or credited in the accompanying consolidated statement of income of the respective period.
 
Goodwill and Intangible Assets
 
FASB ASC 350, Intangibles  – Goodwill and Other addresses the accounting for goodwill and other intangible assets. Under FASB ASC 350, goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite lives are no longer amortized, but reviewed on an annual basis for impairment. Definite lived intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated lives.  Fully amortized assets are written-off against accumulated amortization.
 
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
The Company reviews property and equipment and intangible assets with definite lives for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of these assets is measured by comparison of its carrying amounts to future undiscounted cash flows the assets are expected to generate. If property and equipment and intangible assets with definite lives are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized equals the amount by which the carrying value of the asset exceeds its fair value.  Assets are grouped at the lowest level for which there are identifiable cash flows, principally at the club level, when assessing impairment. Cash flows for our club assets are identified at the individual club level.  The Company’s annual evaluation was performed as of September 30, 2012, based on a projected discounted cash flow method using a discount rate determined by management to be commensurate with the risk inherent in the current business model. We determined that there was no net asset impairment at September 30, 2012.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The Company calculates the fair value of its assets and liabilities which qualify as financial instruments and includes this additional information in the notes to consolidated financial statements when the fair value is different than the carrying value of these financial instruments. The estimated fair value of accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their carrying amounts due to the relatively short maturity of these instruments. The carrying value of short and long-term debt also approximates fair value since these instruments bear market rates of interest. None of these instruments are held for trading purposes.

Derivative Financial Instruments
 
The Company accounts for financial instruments that are indexed to and potentially settled in, its own stock, including stock put options, in accordance with the provisions of FASB ASC 815, Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in  a Company’s Own Stock.  Under certain circumstances that would require the Company to settle these equity items in cash, and without regard to probability, FASB ASC 815 would require the classification of all or part of the item as a liability and the adjustment of that reclassified amount to fair value at each reporting date, with such adjustments reflected in the Company’s consolidated statements of income.  The first instrument to meet the requirements of FASB ASC 815 for derivative accounting occurred in the quarter ended June 30, 2010 when the Company renegotiated the payback terms of certain put options and agreed to pledge as collateral to certain holders a second lien on certain property.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages, food and merchandise, other revenues and services at the point-of-sale upon receipt of cash, check, or credit card charge.
 
The Company recognizes Internet revenue from monthly subscriptions to its online entertainment sites when notification of a new or existing subscription and its related fee are received from the third party hosting company or from the credit card company, usually two to three days after the transaction has occurred. The monthly fee is not refundable. The Company recognizes Internet auction revenue when payment is received from the credit card as revenues are not deemed estimable nor collection deemed probable prior to that point.
 
Revenues from the sale of magazines and advertising content are recognized when the issue is published and shipped.  Revenues and external expenses related to the Company’s annual Expo convention are recognized upon the completion of the convention in August.
 
Sales and Liquor Taxes
 
The Company recognizes sales and liquor taxes paid as revenues and an equal expense in accordance with FASB ASC 605, How Taxes Collected from Customers and Remitted to Governmental Authorities Should Be Presented in the Income Statement.  Total sales and liquor taxes aggregated $6.1 million and $5.1 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
 
Advertising and Marketing
 
Advertising and marketing expenses are primarily comprised of costs related to public advertisements and giveaways, which are used for promotional purposes. Advertising and marketing expenses are expensed as incurred and are included in operating expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of income.
 
Income Taxes
 
Deferred income taxes are determined using the liability method in accordance with FASB ASC 740, Income Taxes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. In addition, a valuation allowance is established to reduce any deferred tax asset for which it is determined that it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized.
 
FASB ASC 740 creates a single model to address accounting for uncertainty in tax positions by prescribing a minimum recognition threshold a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements. FASB ASC 740 also provides guidance on derecognition, measurement, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. There are no unrecognized tax benefits to disclose in the notes to the consolidated financial statements.

Put Options
 
In certain situations, the Company issues restricted common shares as partial consideration for acquisitions of certain businesses or assets.  Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the governing acquisition agreements, the holder of such shares has the right, but not the obligation, to put a fixed number of the shares on a monthly basis back to the Company at a fixed price per share.  The Company may elect during any given month to either buy the monthly shares or, if management elects not to do so, the holder can sell the monthly shares in the open market, and any deficiency between the amount which the holder receives from the sale of the monthly shares and the value of shares will be paid by the Company.  The Company has accounted for these shares in accordance with the guidance established by FASB ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities From Equity, as a reclassification of the value of the shares from permanent to temporary equity.  As the shares become due, the Company transfers the value of the shares back to permanent equity, less any amount paid to the holder.  Also see “Derivative Financial Instruments” above.  We finished liquidating these put options during the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
 
Earnings (Loss) Per Common Share
 
The Company computes earnings (loss) per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. FASB ASC 260 provides for the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of the Company. Potential common stock shares consist of shares that may arise from outstanding dilutive common stock options and warrants (the number of which is computed using the “treasury stock method”) and from outstanding convertible debentures (the number of which is computed using the “if converted method”). Diluted EPS considers the potential dilution that could occur if the Company’s outstanding common stock options, warrants and convertible debentures were converted into common stock that then shared in the Company’s earnings (loss) (as adjusted for interest expense, that would no longer occur if the debentures were converted).
 
Stock Options
 
The stock option compensation costs recognized for the quarters ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 were $281,745 and $12,381, respectively, and were $845,235 and $33,016, respectively, for the nine months then ended.   See Note 4 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for information regarding stock options issued.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2013 AS COMPARED TO THE THREE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012
 
For the three months ended June 30, 2013, we had consolidated total revenues of $28.3 million compared to consolidated total revenues of $23.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $4.4 million or 18.3%.  The increase in total revenues was primarily attributable to approximately $3.6 million contributed by the Jaguars club chain acquired in late 2012, $1.1 million by the new Bombshells and Vee Lounge opened earlier this year, along with strong results from our clubs in New York and Minneapolis.  Total revenues for same-location-same-period of club operations decreased by 2.1% to $22.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 from $23.3 million for the same period ended June 30, 2012.

Following is an explanation of significant variances in the above amounts.
 
Service revenues include cover charges, fees paid by entertainers, room rentals, memberships and fees charged for credit card processing.  Other revenues include ATM commissions earned, video games and other vending and certain promotion fees charged to our entertainers.   We recognize revenue from other revenues and services at the point-of-sale upon receipt of cash, check, or credit card charge.
 
Cost of goods sold includes cost of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, food, cigars and cigarettes, merchandise, media printing/binding, media postage and internet traffic purchases and webmaster payouts.  The cost of goods sold for the club operations for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was 12.9% compared to 13.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2012.  The cost of goods sold for same-location-same-period of club operations for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was 12.9%, compared to 13.6% for the same period ended June 30, 2012. The principal reasons for the slight decrease is due to the hiring of a beverage director and the continuing effect on costs of our national buying power for alcoholic beverages and energy drinks.
 
The increase in payroll and related costs, stated as “Salaries & Wages” above, was primarily due to the addition of the new clubs.   Payroll for same-location-same-period of club operations was $4.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $4.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012.  Management currently believes that its labor and management staff levels are appropriate.

Stock-based compensation is a noncash cost from issuing stock options to employees and Board members in 2013and 2012. All but 10,000 options are fully vested in July 2013.
 
The decrease in rent expense as a percentage of revenues is due to the Company’s purchase of the real estate with its recent acquisitions.
 
The decrease in legal and professional is due principally to the completion of discovery in the New York wage and hour lawsuit during 2013.  See Commitments and Contingencies in Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.
   
Also see Commitments and Contingencies in Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for an explanation of the settlement of lawsuits.
   
Generally, the increase in other expense categories is due to the increase in clubs and revenues.
   
The loss on sale of assets in 2012 is the result of the sale of an aircraft.
   
Income taxes, as a percentage of income before taxes was 37.3% and 35.0% for the quarters ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively due to the tax effect of the larger nondeductible stock-based compensation in 2013. 
   
Operating income (exclusive of corporate overhead) for same-location-same-period of club operations was $5.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $5.8 million for the same period in 2012. 
   
Our “operating margin”, the percentage of operating income to total revenues, was 20.0% and 16.9% for the quarters ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.   The 2013 quarter was affected by the settlement of lawsuit of $160,000.  Without that expense, the 2013 quarter operating margin would have been 20.5%.  Without the lawsuit settlement, net income would have been $2.4 million and diluted earnings per share would have been $0.25 in 2013. The 2012 quarter was affected by the settlement of lawsuit of $200,000 and the loss on sale of assets.  Without those expenses, the 2012 quarter operating margin would have been 18.3%.  Without the lawsuit settlement and the loss on sale of aircraft, net income would have been $2.5 million and diluted earnings per share would have been $0.22 in 2012.
   
The quarter ended June 30. 2013 also includes approximately $230,000 of losses from clubs/restaurants unopened as of June 30, 2013.
   
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2013 AS COMPARED TO THE NINE MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2012
   
For the nine months ended June 30, 2013, we had consolidated total revenues of $84.2 million compared to consolidated total revenues of $71.4 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $12.8 million or 18.0%.  The increase in total revenues was primarily attributable to clubs acquired or opened during the last year.  Total revenues for same-location-same-period of club continuing operations decreased 1.0% to $66.4 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 from $67.0 million for the same period ended June 30, 2012.
