LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) today issued the following statement in response
to statements made today by Bill Ackman:
"There is simply no truth to Bill Ackman's statements and this is just
another stunt in his campaign, a campaign that is reportedly under
criminal investigation by the FBI and the Department of Justice, to
drive down the stock price in an effort to enrich himself and his
investors in advance of options expiring on Friday. Unfortunately we
have seen this pattern of activity before, especially before the third
Friday of each month, when certain options expire."
