"Bill Ackman has been engaged in a nearly three-year effort to drive down Herbalife's stock in order to enrich himself and his investors. There is reportedly an ongoing federal criminal investigation into his campaign against Herbalife for stock manipulation and law enforcement and regulators have recently sought information from Herbalife and others relating to that investigation as well as trading in Herbalife shares and allegations about our business practices. We are cooperating with these requests for information, remain confident in the integrity of our business practices, and are hopeful Ackman's long-term campaign of distortion will be found to be illegal."
In another matter, Herbalife's largest independent shareholder William Stiritz recently changed his filing status with the SEC, leading some to speculate that he may be interested in exiting his position. Reached by phone on Sunday evening, Stiritz said it is not the case.

"My motivation (for the filing) was to reflect my current relationship with the company. I have no intention of eliminating my position or making any major changes."
Stiritz also said his belief in Herbalife's business hasn't wavered.
"I've never done more due diligence on an investment than I did on Herbalife, and I have seen nothing to dissuade me from my original analysis," he said.
Stiritz told CNBC, like everyone else, he too was waiting for the FTC to rule on Herbalife, but was confident in the outcome.
"Black swans happen," said Stiritz, "but this one is so infinitesimally small that Herbalife is not going to be shut down. There's nothing there."
