Global nutrition company Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) announced the fourth in its latest series of videos that showcase observations by the media and other thought leaders about the motives, failed investment strategies and questionable tactics of Bill Ackman. Observers have questioned his scruples and ethics, arguing that he has put his personal agenda ahead of the interests of his investors.

The fourth video in the series, “Ackman’s Tactics Called Into Question” posted today on TheRealBillAckman.com, underscores Ackman’s “highly questionable” tactics and suggests they “might cross ethical and possibly legal lines,” and clearly do not meet the established norms of Wall Street and standards of activist investors.

“Activist investors can, and often do, increase shareholder value by improving corporations in many ways. Yet, in the wrong hands, activist investing can do untold damage to employees, companies and our country’s economy and if left unchecked and without accountability, they portend a troubling future for our financial markets,” said Alan Hoffman, executive vice president, global corporate affairs, Herbalife.

For close to four years, Bill Ackman has launched a well-funded, aggressive market manipulation campaign, filled with false statements, to support his reckless $1 billion bet against Herbalife. In addition to the investment loss for his investors, Bill Ackman said his carrying costs were approximately $100 million annually, which when combined with the more than $75 million he has spent on lobbying and public relations, adds up to real money.
