Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On December 6, 2022, in connection with the effectiveness of new Securities and Exchange Commission rules regarding universal proxy cards, certain recent changes to the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), and a periodic review of the by-laws of Brunswick Corporation (the “Company”), the Company’s Board of Directors adopted amended and restated by-laws (the “Amended and Restated By-Laws”), effective immediately. Among other things, the amendments effected by the Amended and Restated By-Laws:

Address matters relating to Rule 14a-19 under the Exchange Act (the “Universal Proxy Rules”) (e.g., providing the Company a remedy if a shareholder fails to satisfy the requirements of the Universal Proxy Rules, requiring nominating shareholders to make a representation as to whether they intend to use the Universal Proxy Rules, requiring shareholders intending to use the Universal Proxy Rules to notify the Company of any change in such intent within two business days and to provide reasonable evidence of the satisfaction of the requirements of the Universal Proxy Rules at least five business days before the applicable meeting, providing that in the event the Company receives proxies for disqualified or withdrawn nominees for directors, such votes for such disqualified or withdrawn nominees in the proxies will be treated as abstentions, etc.);

Modify the provisions relating to adjournment procedures to reflect recent amendments to the DGCL; and

Make various other updates, including ministerial and conforming changes.

The foregoing summary of the amendments effected by the Amended and Restated By-Laws does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Amended and Restated By-Laws, which are filed as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and are incorporated herein by reference.
