08:20 EDTAPDAckman says Herbalife short thesis reinforced by recent developments
"Recent developments at Herbalife reinforce our short thesis that HLF is an illegal pyramid that will collapse or otherwise be shut down by regulators," Bill Ackman stated in Pershing Square Holdings' quarterly letter to shareholders, which was released last night. "We continue to believe that the expiration of HLFís $1.15B credit facility in 2016 is a potential catalyst for further stock price declines, as we are skeptical that the company will be able to access the credit markets in order to refinance or replace this facility," Ackman added. In the letter, Ackman also confirmed that the fund is currently doing due diligence on Actavis (ACT) to determine whether it should remain a long-term holder following the company's deal to acquire Allergan (AGN), noting that Pershing had recently met with the CEO of Actavis and were "impressed with him and his business plan for the combined company." Remarking on some of his other notable holdings, Ackman stated that Canadian Pacificís (CP) transformation has been "nothing short of remarkable," that he believes the acquisition of Tim Hortons (THI) will create significant long-term value for Burger King (BKW) shareholders, and that early returns from Air Products' (APD) transformation are "promising."
