14:05 EDTHLFPershing Square to webcast video about Herbalife on February 9
Pershing Square Capital Management announced that it will webcast "The American Dream Denied," a video about Herbalife, tomorrow, February 9, at 11:30 am Eastern time. Pershing stated: "Herbalife has attempted to convince regulators, elected officials, and the public that it has cleaned up its act and made substantial improvements to its business model. But the stories of Herbalife distributors show that millions of people are still being harmed by the company every day. The changes the company has made do not impact Herbalife's pyramidal compensation plan or the predatory practices Herbalife uses to deceive aspiring entrepreneurs. The 'new Herbalife' is no different than the old Herbalife."
