NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Today, Pershing Square Capital
Management, L.P. issued the following statement in response to Herbalife's
analyst day presentation:

William A. Ackman, CEO of Pershing Square Capital Management said, "In advance
of today's analyst day, Herbalife promised to provide a detailed refutation of
each of the facts that we enumerated in our December 20th presentation.
Instead, the company distorted, mischaracterized, and outright ignored large
portions of our presentation. For example, Herbalife did not respond to our
identification of overstatements and inaccuracies in the company's earnings
statement for distributors, which among other deceptions, excludes the 93% of
distributors that have zero gross earnings.

In today's presentation, Herbalife offered the opportunity for 'anyone' to ask
questions of Herbalife so its business can be better understood.

Pershing Square will be publicly releasing a detailed series of questions that
will assist investors, regulators, distributors, and other interested parties
in understanding the truth about Herbalife. Thereafter, we will respond with
particularity to every issue raised today by Herbalife.

Over the last three weeks, we have been contacted by numerous interested
parties who have provided additional insight into Herbalife's business
practices. We will be addressing these new issues in our updated presentation.

Please go to www.factsaboutherbalife.com to view our presentation and learn
more about the company."
