Fourth Quarter 2010 Financial Results
Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased to $13.6 million from $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Revenue increased due to higher sales of food and merchandise, higher service revenue, and increased other income, which offset a decline in sales of alcohol. The 14.7% increase in service revenue reflected continued patron acceptance of table side services, wristband access to special areas, table dances, and suite fees, all of which were introduced company-wide in 2009.
Cost of goods sold (the cost of alcohol, food and merchandise) was $1.5 million, or 26.6% of attributable revenue, compared to $1.5 million, or 25.1% of attributable revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $11.8 million compared to total operating expenses of $14.4 million for the 2009 fourth quarter. Operating expenses in the 2009 fourth quarter included $1.8 million or $0.10 per share, in non-cash impairment charges related to licenses and goodwill at certain of VCG's clubs, as well as higher legal and professional fees.
Advisory fees related to change in control were $0.3 million for the fourth quarter 2010, compared to $1.0 million in the fourth quarter 2009.
Operating income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $1.7 million compared to an operating loss of $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. This improvement was due primarily to the effect of the above-referenced non-cash charges, change in control costs, and higher legal and professional fees.
Total interest expense declined to $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 from $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, reflecting the Company's ongoing efforts to pay down debt.
Income from continuing operations, net of income taxes for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $0.8 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to a loss of $1.3 million, or ($0.08) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $0.7 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or ($0.08) per share, in the 2009 fourth quarter.

2010 Financial Results
Total revenue for 2010 increased to $55.3 million from $53.2 million last year, due to higher sales of food and merchandise, higher service revenues, and increased other income, offsetting a decline in sales of alcohol.

Salaries and wages increased by $1.7 million, or 12.5%, compared to the same period in 2009.

Total operating expenses for 2010 were $49.7 million, up from $48.3 million last year.
