Nominating and Governance
1. Members. The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Herbalife Nutrition Ltd. (the “Company”) appoints a Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee (the “Committee”) consisting of at least three independent members of the Board, who serve at the pleasure of the Board, and designates one member as chairperson or delegates the authority to designate a chairperson to the Committee. For purposes hereof, an "independent" director is a director who meets the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) definition of "independence," as determined by the Board.
2. Purpose, Duties and Responsibilities. The purpose, duties and responsibilities of the Committee are to oversee the composition, structure, operation and evaluation of the Board; identify individuals qualified to become Board members (consistent with criteria approved by the Board); recommend to the Board the Company’s director candidates for election at the annual general meeting of shareholders; recommend to the Board corporate governance principles (the “Principles”), and monitor compliance with adopted principles and policies, or as appropriate, in coordination with other committees of the Board and/or the Board; and perform a leadership role in shaping the Company’s corporate governance. Among its specific duties and responsibilities, the Committee will:
(a) engage in succession planning for the Board and key leadership roles on the Board and its committees;
(b) periodically evaluate the composition of the Board to assess the skills and experience that are currently represented on the Board, as well as the skills and experience that the Board will find valuable in the future, given the Company’s current situation and strategic plans;

(j) periodically review the Board’s leadership structure and recommend changes to the Board as appropriate, and make recommendations to the independent directors regarding the appointment of the lead independent director, if any;

3. Outside advisors. The Committee will have the authority to retain at the expense of the Company such outside counsel, experts, and other advisors as it determines appropriate to assist it in the full performance of its functions without the necessity for approval by the Board or management, including authority to retain and terminate any search firm used to identify director candidates, and to approve the search firm's fees and other retention terms.
4. Meetings. The Committee will meet as often as may be deemed necessary or appropriate, in its judgment, either in person or telephonically, and at such times and places as the committee determines. A majority of the members of the Committee constitutes a quorum. The committee will report regularly to the full Board with respect to its activities.
Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Charter, the Committee and the proceedings of the Committee shall be governed by the articles of association of the Company in force from time to time, regarding the proceedings of the Board, so far as they are capable of applying.
