Time...its a killer in this case of Ackman vs HLF- 7 months now since the Ack Attack
The FTC most certainly doesn't want to be the next screw up agency under Obamas watch. Striking down a massive billion dollar company 33 years old would point a finger at Amway (54 yrs old), NuSkin, and so on.
There are those that hate Amway and all MLMs, if the FTC hammered Herb then it would be used to launch attacks on all MLMs including Warren Buffett's Pampered Chef. Warren would be on the phone to Obama in a heart beat...it wouldn't be pretty.
It would make the FTC look pathetic when HLF's attorney presented the legal guidelines from the 1970 Amway vs FTC documents as validation his company was operating correctly. HLF is already making minor changes voluntarily so the needed messaging of a few things is almost done. No big deal.
The FTC has been in communications with Herbalife for 3 decades, this correspondence proves HLF has been working with the FTC to make sure all is well, its not like HLF has never been reviewed and received a stamp of approval several times from the FTC.
Amen brother. The folks at Amway tried taking their Asia division public and quickly bought it back due to fuzzy math by those in towers looking down on all us peons...particularly Bill Ackman comes to mind, I don't know why he pops up.
Ackman knows how Carl operates and his desire to succeed on his HLF venture more than any other deal he's ever done in his career. Bill now knows the FTC is fine with the way HLF does their business, he may not agree with how its done, but c est la vie
