Free Writing Prospectus


Domestic company-owned same store sales (including internet sales, “Same Store Sales”) is one of the primary drivers of GNC Holdings, Inc.’s (the “Company”) business and is thus indicative of the Company’s overall performance.  Through January and February, 2012, preliminary results reflect that Same Store Sales increased by approximately 16% compared to the same period in the prior year due to continued strength in major product categories.  This compares to an increase of approximately 6% in Same Store Sales for the first two months of fiscal 2011, and a 7.5% increase that the Company reported for the first quarter of fiscal 2011, compared to the same periods in the prior year.  The first fiscal quarter of 2011 included a monthly Same Store Sales increase of 10.4% in March 2011 compared to March 2010, which is notable because March 2011 marked the beginning of relatively higher Same Store Sales performance in 2011, which has continued in 2012.


The above information and expectations are based on preliminary data for only a portion of the first quarter, which has not been subjected to the Company’s normal quarter-end closing and review procedures. Because the preliminary information for this period is not for an entire fiscal period and will be subject to quarter-end closing procedures and/or adjustments, it should not be viewed as a substitute for full interim financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and reviewed by the Company’s auditors. This preliminary information could change materially and is not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for the quarter ending March 31, 2012, the remainder of fiscal year 2012 or any future period.
