Ecolab Inc. (the Company) is furnishing this Current Report on Form 8-K/A to revise certain information in its news release issued on April 28, 2014 announcing earnings for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 (News Release). The News Release was previously furnished by the Company as an exhibit to its current report on Form 8-K dated April 28, 2014 (the Original Form 8-K). Subsequent to furnishing the Original Form 8-K, and during the process of completing its quarterly financial statements at March 31, 2014 in anticipation of filing its Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014, the Company determined that its $250 million Senior Notes due in 2015 should have been described as short-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheet as of March 31, 2014. Accordingly, the Company has revised the News Release to reflect this debt obligation as short-term debt rather than long-tern debt. The Company is amending the Original Form 8-K to furnish an updated version of the News Release to reflect this change.
Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
A copy of the News Release, as revised to reflect the change described in the Explanatory Note above, is attached as Exhibit (99) and incorporated by reference herein. Ecolab also will publish the revised News Release on its website located at www.ecolab.com.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
The following exhibit is furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of Form 8-K and should not be deemed to be filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
