Ecolab has published its annual report for fiscal year 2017, revealing sales growth of 5 per cent and adjusted (diluted) earnings per share of 7 per cent.


The group's performance was buoyed by the adoption of new digital technologies that facilitate monitoring of individual facilities, and a renewed focus on core activities following the disposal of its equipment care business.

 

An aggressive acquisition programme resulted in an increase in the company's debt-to-equity ratio, as it acquired 12 new businesses operating within the healthcare, paper, water management and pest control sectors.
