The Board of Directors of Ecolab Inc. declared a 2% increase in the companys quarterly cash dividend to $0.47 per common share, to be paid January 15, 2020, to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 17, 2019. This increase results in a new indicated annual cash dividend of $1.88 per share in 2020 and represents Ecolabs 28th consecutive annual dividend rate increase.

Ecolab has paid cash dividends on its common stock for 83 consecutive years.

Commenting on the increase, Douglas M. Baker, Jr., Ecolabs Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said, The cash dividend increase continues our commitment to enhancing total shareholder returns through both our strong business performance and returning cash to shareholders. This smaller than typical increase for 2020 reflects the anticipated impact the planned spin-off of our upstream energy business will have on our earnings. We intend to continue increasing the cash dividend going forward and do so in a manner that maintains our post spin-off payout ratio at our historic levels.
