Isn't it obvious that Herbalife is trying to go private to avoid regulatory requirements? If they go private, then they will not be forced to show that their earnings are based heavily on signing up distributors versus sales? If you move autoship from the equation, then what's factored as 'potential to earn' for distributors becomes obsolete. Another approach would be to look at the distriburor's required purchase. If we take this element too out of the sales, then the assessment of the bottom line will equate to a pyramid operated business.

With the launch of new product/distributor opps, Herbalifeme may have reached Iits point. The diet/supplement market abd income possibility is now saturated.
