Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

As previously announced, Ecolab Inc. (“Ecolab”) has adopted SFAS 123(R), the new accounting standard for expensing stock options, effective as of the fourth quarter 2005, using the modified retrospective application method for all prior periods.  Accordingly, as part of the transition to the new standard, all prior period financial statements have been restated to recognize share-based compensation expense historically reported in the Notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements.  Ecolab also adjusted its previously announced EPS guidance for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2005 to reflect SFAS 123(R), and to reflect the previously announced $0.01 per share tax charge anticipated for repatriation of foreign earnings under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004.  In addition, Ecolab issued EPS guidance for 2006.

 

SFAS 123(R) Information Published On-line

Ecolab has posted restated financial information on our website at www.ecolab.com/investor, and the same information is furnished as Exhibits (99)B – (99)E of this report.  This restated information reflecting SFAS 123(R) is comprised of unaudited income statement, balance sheet and cash flow information for the years ended December 31, 1995 through 2004, as well as unaudited comparative financial data for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2004 and the quarterly periods ended March 31, June 30 and September 30, 2005.

 

Adjusted 2005 EPS Guidance

Following adjustment for previously announced items, Ecolab expects diluted earnings per share in the $0.26 to $0.28 range for the fourth quarter 2005 (which includes a $0.04 per share charge for option expense and $0.01 per share charge for repatriation of foreign earnings) and in the $1.22 to $1.24 range for the full year 2005 (which includes a $0.10 per share charge for option expense and $0.01 per share charge for repatriation of foreign earnings).  These results compare with restated diluted earnings per share of $0.22 for the fourth quarter of 2004 and $1.09 for the full year 2004.

 

2006 EPS Guidance

On January 9, 2006, Ecolab also announced that it expects diluted earnings per share for the year ending December 31, 2006 to rise double-digits to the $1.38 to $1.42 range. This would compare with the $1.22 to $1.24 range expected for the full year 2005.  Included in both projections is an annual charge of approximately $0.10 per share for SFAS 123(R).
