By 1985 Herbalife was considered one of the fastest growing companies in the US, with an expansion revenue just north of 400 million dollars. Even though Herbalife had a few bumps on the road to success, they made the company public on the stock market and changed its brand name to Herbalife International.
In three years they had expanded its business to international countries like Israel, Mexico, Spain, Japan and New Zealand and by 1996 they had sales from 32 different countries, with half of the revenue coming from the international sales.
Recently the company has agreed to change the way they do business. In November of 2016 they changed CEO and a year later they reinvested revenue back into the company by repurchasing around 600 million dollars of their own stocks. This year the company has once again changed its branded name to Herbalife Nutrition.
