A sizable block of Francesca's Holdings (NASDAQ: FRAN  ) stock is being sold by key shareholders in a secondary offering.

CCMP Capital Advisors and "certain members of management" of Francesca's are selling a total of just under 7.4 million shares, the company announced in a press release Tuesday.

The selling stockholders include the company's chief merchandising officer, chief operating officer/president, and vice president of finance and investor relations.
