Item 8.01.                                            Other Events.

 

On September 6, 2011, Ecolab Inc. announced it plans to undertake a $1,000,000,000 share repurchase program upon consummation of the previously announced merger with Nalco Holding Company.  Ecolab expects to complete the $1 billion worth of repurchases by year-end 2012 in the open market; in privately negotiated transactions from time-to-time, depending on market conditions; and through purchases made in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

The share repurchase program will be made under Ecolab’s existing share repurchase authorization.  The Board of Directors last increased the share repurchase authorization by 10,000,000 shares in August 2011, contingent upon consummation of the Nalco merger.  Including the August 2011 authorization, Ecolab has 27,949,558 shares remaining for repurchase.
