Weiss & Lurie, a national class action and shareholder rights law firm
with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, is investigating possible
breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law by the Board of
Directors of Nalco Holding Company (NYSE: NLC) arising from its proposed
acquisition by Ecolab Inc. (NYSE: ECL) in a cash and stock transaction

transaction, Nalco shareholders may elect to receive either 0.7005 share

the Board properly sought to maximize shareholder value.
