Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 6, 2014, Herbalife Ltd. ("Herbalife" or the "Company") entered into an agreement with Merrill Lynch International to repurchase $266 million of Herbalife's common shares as part of the Company's previously announced share repurchase program. Under the terms of the repurchase agreement, Herbalife will pay $266 million on May 7, 2014 from the Company’s cash on hand. Herbalife will receive a portion of the repurchased shares on pre-determined dates and the remainder upon completion of the program. The total number of shares ultimately repurchased under the agreement will be determined based generally upon a discounted volume-weighted average share price of Herbalife's common shares over the course of the program. The transaction is currently expected to be completed no later than June 2014. Shares that are repurchased will be retired.
