Here is what Kinsman Oak has to say about RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. in its Q3 2021 investor letter:

"RCI Hospitality Holdings (RICK) is a high margin free cash flow machine with strong underlying business momentum. Our investment thesis is as follows: 1) Multiple re-rating candidate; 2) Long runway to roll up a highly fragmented industry; 3) Upside optionality from an emerging restaurant concept. We initiated a position at an ~11% FCF yield which we felt was a compelling valuation. RICK is comprised of two business segments. Segment 1: The core business is a portfolio of mature cash-flowing adult nightclubs and Segment 2: An emerging restaurant concept called Bombshells. The management team focuses on capital allocation between these two segments and will repurchase shares depending on where ROI is highest. Growth in the adult nightclub business is primarily via acquisition whereas Bombshells is organic. Sales mix by segment and revenue type is broken down in Appendix E."
