EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

 

This current report on Form 8-K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the current report on Form 8-K dated May 5, 2017 filed by Ecolab Inc. (the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Original Form 8-K”).  The Original Form 8-K reported the final voting results of the Company's 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on May 4, 2017 (the “2017 Annual Meeting”).  The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose the Company's decision regarding how frequently it will conduct future stockholder advisory votes to approve the compensation of the Company's named executive officers.   No other changes have been made to the Original Form 8-K.

 

Item 5.07    Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

 

As previously reported in the Original Form 8-K, in a non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of future stockholder advisory votes on executive compensation held at the 2017 Annual Meeting, stockholders indicated a preference for an annual advisory vote on executive compensation as follows:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One Year

    

Two Years

    

Three Years

    

Abstain

    

Broker Non-Votes

220,022,767

 

464,126

 

18,024,865

 

379,814

 

21,500,549

 

In light of these results and consistent with the previous recommendation and determination of the Company’s board of directors, the Company will continue to hold  a non-binding advisory vote on executive compensation on an annual basis until the next required vote on the frequency of stockholder votes on executive compensation, or until the board of directors otherwise determines that a different frequency for such votes is in the best interests of the Company.
