The Fresh Market (NASDAQ:TFM) is a specialty food retailer. The company has an emphasis on fresh, perishable items. As of October 2010, TFM operated 100 stores across 20 US states mostly in the Southeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic. Because it focuses heavily on fresh items the stores tend to be at least half the size of conventional supermarkets.[1]

The company plans to continue to increase the number of stores that in operates. It expects that it will be able to operate at least 500 stores with the given format. The company has historically pushed to expand its store base and has tripled the number of stores that it operates since 2000.[2]

The company's initial public offering of stock on the NASDAQ occurred on November 4, 2010. The company offered 13.2M shares each for $22. This was above the initial price range of $18-$20. The IPO raised a total of $292M. The proceeds of the deal will go entirely to shareholders and not to the company. As a result, the IPO will not directly generate revenue for The Fresh Market as a company. The lead underwriters of the deal were Bank of America (BAC), J P Morgan Chase (JPM), and Goldman Sachs Group (GS).[3]

Since 2007, TFM has managed to continue to grow its total revenue figure. In 2009, its total revenue was $862M, which was a 8% increase over the year before. The company's net income has also risen each year since 2007. The company's 2009 net income was $49M which was a 53% increase from 2008.[4]
