Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.


(b) Resignation of a Director


On June 27, 2008, Kasper Rorsted, a director of Ecolab Inc. (the “Company”), notified the Company that he, Stefan Hamelmann and Hans Van Bylen, each being elected to the Board of Directors of the Company pursuant to the Stockholder’s Agreement between the Company and Henkel AG & Co. KGaA of Düsseldorf, Germany (“Henkel”), have decided to resign as directors of the Company pending resolution of Henkel’s previously-announced intention to sell some or all of its investment in the Company.


Under the Stockholder’s Agreement, Henkel is entitled to designate a number of persons to be appointed or nominated for election to the Board of Directors of the Company proportionate to Henkel’s shareholding in the Company, rounded down to the nearest whole number.  In February 2008, Henkel reported that it owned 29.4% of the Company’s shares.  Upon completion of Henkel’s sale process, if Henkel continues to be a stockholder, it may be entitled to request the Company to reappoint or cause the nomination of one or more designees to resume proportional representation on the Company’s Board.


A copy of the press release issued by the Company announcing notification of the impending resignations of Messrs. Hamelmann, Rorsted and Van Bylen is filed as an Exhibit (99) to this Form 8-K.
