NEW YORK, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pershing Square Capital Management, L.P. ("Pershing Square") today released a detailed analysis comparing Herbalife Ltd. and Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing, the pyramid scheme that was recently prosecuted by the Federal Trade Commission and Attorneys General from Kentucky, North Carolina and Illinois.
Using the same analytical framework and legal standards that the FTC used to conclude that Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing is a pyramid scheme, Pershing Square believes that Herbalife clearly violates those same standards.

The report lays out Pershing Square's analysis point-by-point.
