Statement from Herbalife in Response to Bill Ackman's
Three-Hour Presentation on Nutrition Clubs


      LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) today issued the
following statement in response to Bill Ackman's three-hour, presentation on the
Company's nutrition clubs:
      Herbalife is a 34-year old nutrition company with 7,400 employees
worldwide and millions of members. Today, Mr. Ackman highlighted many of the
reasons we are proud of our company, our record and the value we bring to
members, consumers and communities around the world. His presentation reaffirmed
that:
    --  Herbalife is first and foremost a company with great products that
        people want.
    --  There are hundreds of thousands of members and millions more consumers
        who choose Herbalife for our products and community-based approach to
        health and wellness.
    --  There is a comprehensive training system for members who aspire to open
        their own nutrition club so that they are fully informed of the time,
        commitment and skills required to do so.

      Once again, Bill Ackman has over-promised and under-delivered on his $1
billion bet against our company. After spending $50 million, two years and
tens of thousands of man-hours, Bill Ackman further demonstrated today that the
facts are on our side.
