  Herbalife Statement in Response to Ackman Presentation

Business Wire

LOS ANGELES -- December 20, 2012

The following is a statement from Herbalife in response to the Ackman
presentation. Today's presentation was a malicious attack on Herbalife's
business model based largely on outdated, distorted and inaccurate
information. Herbalife operates with the highest ethical and quality
standards, and our management and our board are constantly reviewing our
business practices and products. Herbalife also hires independent, outside
experts to ensure our operations are in full compliance with laws and
regulations. Herbalife is not an illegal pyramid scheme.
