This was at the midpoint of the $15-$17 initial price range. 6.5M of its 22.5M offered shares were sold by the company's private equity sponsors. This brought the total deal size to $45M. The lead underwriter of the IPO were Goldman Sachs Group (GS), J P Morgan Chase (JPM), Deutsche Bank AG (DB), and Morgan Stanley (MS).[3]

In 2010, GNC reported a total revenue of $1.8B. This was an increase over the 2009 figure of $1.7B. The company's net income in 2010 was $96.6M. This was a 13% decrease from the $111.9 M net income reported for 2009.[4]
