NEW YORK, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P. ("Pershing Square") today released the following statement:
"Pershing Square believes that Herbalife is a pyramid scheme based on over two years of research. We continue to share our research and findings with regulators, policymakers, law enforcement and other interested parties to shine a light on the company's and its distributors' illegal practices.
In an article today, Herbalife's Chief Financial Officer, John DeSimone, told the New York Times that Pershing Square's 'accusations are provably false.' Yet, Herbalife has failed to respond to basic questions that we and others have continued to raise.
Herbalife has refused to release actual retail sales information that it requires its distributors to maintain, instead relying on third party survey data. Herbalife has refused to address the documented false and misleading sales practices plied by its senior-most distributors, including John Tartol, a current member of Herbalife's Board of Directors. Despite documented evidence to the contrary, Herbalife continues to deny that it targets minority communities, including Latinos throughout the United States. Moreover, Herbalife continues to deny that its pays recruiting rewards, despite the fact that recruiters are paid cash commissions when a new distributor qualifies for the business opportunity through mandatory inventory purchases.
Tomorrow, at 2:00 p.m. EDT we will present evidence of Herbalife's violations of laws in China.
We look forward to Herbalife's evidence that our accusations are 'provably false.'"

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
