Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On December 14, 2011, Ecolab Inc. (the “Company”), as part of its previously announced share repurchase program, entered into an accelerated share repurchase (“ASR”) agreement with Credit Suisse International (“CSI”).

 

Under the ASR agreement, the Company will repurchase a variable number of shares of its outstanding common stock from CSI for $500 million, with the initial delivery of the repurchased shares to be on or about December 21, 2011.  The final per share purchase price and the total number of shares to be repurchased under the ASR agreement will be based on the volume-weighted average price of the Company’s common stock during the term of the agreement, and will be determined upon completion of the ASR transaction.  If the number of shares to be repurchased exceeds the number of shares previously delivered under the agreement, the Company will receive from CSI a number of additional shares equal to such excess at that time.  If the actual number of shares to be repurchased is less than the number of shares previously delivered, the Company will be required, at its election, to either (1) deliver to CSI a number of shares approximately equal to the difference or (2) make a cash payment to CSI equal to the value of such shares. The ASR agreement is scheduled to end in March 2012, but it may conclude earlier at CSI’s option. All shares acquired by the Company under the ASR agreement will be recorded as treasury stock.

 

The ASR agreement is subject to terms customary for similar agreements, including adjustments upon the occurrence of certain events and setting forth certain circumstances under which the ASR agreement may be  terminated prior to the scheduled termination date.
