This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 1”) relates to shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of GNC Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”).

This Amendment No. 1 amends the Schedule 13D, as previously filed on November 19, 2018 with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Harbin Pharmaceutical Group Co., Ltd, a corporation incorporated in the People’s Republic of China (“Harbin”), by furnishing the information set forth below. Except as otherwise specified in this Amendment No. 1, all previous Items are unchanged. 


Item 4.    Purpose of Transaction

The information previously provided in response to Item 4 is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following at the end thereof: 

On October 24, 2019, the Issuer announced that it is reviewing a range of refinancing options, including discussions with financing sources in the United States and Asia, to further optimize the Company’s capital structure and enhance its financial flexibility. The Issuer also announced that the Board of Directors of the Issuer has created a committee of independent directors to conduct this review process. Harbin expects that the Issuer and the committee of independent directors of the Board of Directors of the Issuer, as well as various investment and financing professionals, potential financing sources and other parties may engage with Harbin and/or its affiliates, related parties and representatives in discussions with respect to possible refinancing options.
The discussions and negotiations may involve potential transactions, proposals, events or actions under which Harbin and/or its affiliates could be asked to offer its support for, or otherwise participate in, such possible refinancing options and, in connection therewith, provide direct or indirect financing, credit or other support for the Issuer and/or acquire additional securities of the Issuer.  These discussions and negotiations also may result in one or more of the transactions, events or actions specified in items (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, including, without limitation, a corporate transaction involving the Issuer, and other material changes in the Issuer’s business or corporate structure.  Harbin further intends to continuously evaluate the Issuer’s businesses and prospects, refinancing options, alternative investment opportunities and all other factors deemed relevant with respect thereto.  The foregoing description of such possible transactions does not purport to be complete.
Except as set forth herein, Harbin has no current intention, plan or proposal with respect to items (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.
