Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

On December 3, 2015, the Board of Directors of Ecolab Inc. (the “Company”) approved the amendment and restatement of the Company’s By-Laws (the “Amended and Restated Bylaws”) to implement a proxy access bylaw. Section 15 of Article II of the Amended and Restated Bylaws permits a stockholder, or a group of up to 20 stockholders, owning 3% or more of the Company’s outstanding shares continuously for at least three years, to nominate and include in the Company’s proxy materials director nominees constituting up to the greater of (i) two directors and (ii) 20% of the Board of Directors, provided that such stockholder(s) and nominee(s) satisfy the requirements set forth in the Amended and Restated Bylaws. The Amended and Restated Bylaws also make certain clarifications and updates to Sections 3 and 4 of Article II and Section 3 of Article III to accommodate the proxy access bylaw. The Amended and Restated By-Laws were effective upon the approval by the Board of Directors.

 

The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated By-Laws with respect to implementation of the proxy access bylaw is only a summary, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, and should be read in conjunction with, the complete text of the Amended and Restated By-Laws filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
