GNC Holdings, Inc (NYSE:GNC) is a nutritional supplement retailer with more than 7,200 worldwide locations. Each of the company's retail locations sell health and wellness products such as vitamins, minerals, herbal supplements, and diet products. The company sells a large line of products which are sold with the GNC brand name on it.[1]

According to the Nutrition Business Journal, the nutritional supplements industry generated an estimated $28.7B in 2010. It is projected to grow at a Compounded annual growth rate - CAGR of approximately 5.3% until 2015. GNC views the market as being highly fragmented across distributors and producers.

The company's initial public offering of stock on the NYSE occurred on March 31, 2011. The company offered 22.5M shares each for $16. 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]
