A module M is said to satisfy the EC11 condition if every ec-submodule of M has a complement which is a direct summand. We show that for a multiplication module over a commutative ring the EC11 and P-extending conditions are equivalent. It is shown that the EC11 property is not inherited by direct summands. Moreover, we prove that if M is an EC11-module where SocM is an ec-submodule, then it is a direct sum of a module with essential socle and a module with zero socle. An example is given to show that the reverse of the last result does not hold.
