Herbalife To Nominate Three Additional Icahn Designees To Board

Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) today announced that it has amended and restated its agreement with Carl C. Icahn, Icahn Enterprises Holdings L.P. and certain related entities (collectively the "Icahn Parties"), which beneficially own, in the aggregate, 17,000,000 shares of Herbalife common stock, representing approximately 16.8% of the company's outstanding shares. As part of the agreement, Herbalife will nominate three designees of the Icahn Parties, Hunter C. Gary, Jesse A. Lynn and James L. Nelson, for election to Herbalife’s board of directors at its 2014 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, currently scheduled for April 29, 2014 ("the Annual Meeting"). Messrs. Gary and Lynn are employees of Icahn Enterprises L.P., and will be nominated for election to the Class I directorships currently held by Carole Black and Michael Levitt, whose three-year terms end at the Annual Meeting. Colombe M. Nicholas intends to resign from Herbalife’s board, and Mr. Nelson, who is an independent director of Icahn Enterprises L.P., will be nominated for election to serve the remainder of the term of Ms. Nicholas’ Class II directorship. These three nominations are in addition to the two representatives of the Icahn Parties currently on the board. The size of the board will remain at thirteen directors.

Under the terms of the amended and restated agreement, the Icahn Parties have agreed, among other things, to continue to abide by certain standstill provisions and vote their shares in support of all of the board's director nominees at the upcoming Annual Meeting. The Icahn Parties continue to have the right to increase the size of their ownership position in Herbalife up to 25% of the outstanding common stock. A copy of the agreement with further detail will be attached to a Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed by Herbalife with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"This is a very positive agreement and we appreciate the Icahn Parties’ shared confidence in Herbalife’s continued success," said Michael O. Johnson, chairman and chief executive officer of Herbalife. "The current Icahn representatives have brought considerable insight and experience to our board and we look forward to working with the additional representatives in a similarly collaborative way. I would like to thank Carole Black, Michael Levitt and Colombe Nicholas for their many contributions to the board.”
