    Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") affirmed the ratings on Ecolab Inc.'s senior unsecured notes at Baa1 but changed the outlook on the ratings to positive from stable. The change in outlook reflects Ecolab's strong track record of growing and improving the portfolio through M&A activity and organic growth, while maintaining a strong balance sheet with only occasional deviations from the company's net leverage targets. The positive outlook also reflects good scale, strong and consistent free cash flow and relatively strong and stable EBITDA margins, which should expand modestly after the pending separation of the upstream energy business.
