As previously reported by press release, the tender offer by Herbalife Ltd., a Cayman Islands exempted company incorporated with limited liability (the “Company”), for up to $600 million of the Company’s outstanding common shares expired on October 5, 2017.

Subsequently, on October 16, 2017, the Company cancelled each of the 6,732,300 common shares accepted for purchase in the tender offer. As of October 23, 2017, after the cancellation of such common shares, the Company had 87,193,510 common shares outstanding.

In addition, on October 25, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company met and determined that for accounting purposes the fair market value of each contingent value right issued as consideration in the tender offer is $1.08, based on its review of the valuation analysis conducted by an independent third party.


Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.


Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K may contain “forward-looking statements.” All statements other than statements of historical fact are “forward-looking statements” for purposes of federal and state securities laws. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the anticipated value of the contingent value rights, the Company’s expectations, hopes or intentions regarding the future, including but not limited to statements regarding the Company’s operating or other strategic plans, including the Company’s competition, financing, revenues, or tax benefits; the Company’s beliefs regarding the sufficiency of the Company’s existing cash and credit sources, and cash flows from operating activities to meet the Company’s projected expenditures (including operating and maintenance capital expenditures); the Company’s required capital expenditures pursuant to agreements it is party to, and the Company’s anticipated capital expenditures, estimated asset and liability values; risk of counterparty nonperformance; the Company’s legal strategies and the potential effect of pending legal claims on the Company’s business and financial condition; and any financial or other information included herein based upon or otherwise incorporating judgments or estimates based upon future performance or events. Forward-looking statements may include the words “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “intend,” “continue,” “believe,” “expect” or “anticipate” and any other similar words. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in any of its forward-looking statements are reasonable, actual results could differ materially from those projected or assumed in any of its forward-looking statements. The Company’s future financial condition and results of operations, as well as any forward-looking statements, are subject to change and to inherent risks and uncertainties, such as those disclosed or incorporated by reference in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements represent the Company’s estimates and assumptions only as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K. The Company expressly disclaims any duty to provide updates to forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, after the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, in order to reflect changes in circumstances or expectations or the occurrence of unanticipated events, except to the extent required by applicable securities laws. All forward-looking statements are qualified in their entirety by reference to the factors discussed above and under “Risk Factors” set forth in Part I Item 1A and elsewhere of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on February 23, 2017, in Part I Item 4 and elsewhere of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the SEC on August 1, 2017, and in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the SEC on October 2, 2017, as well as the risks and uncertainties discussed in the Company’s other filings with the SEC. The Company qualifies all of its forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements. The Company cautions you that these risks are not exhaustive. The Company operates in a continually changing business environment and new risks emerge from time to time.
