Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick Agrees to Acquire Lankhorst Taselaar, Strengthening Mercury Marine's European P&A Network

LAKE FOREST, Ill. July 20, 2017 - Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) today
announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Lankhorst Taselaar, a leading
marine parts and accessories distribution company based in the Netherlands and
Germany.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.  Upon completion of this
transaction, Lankhorst Taselaar will be integrated into Mercury Marine to
augment the engine maker's strong and growing P&A business in Europe.

With 2016 revenue of approximately $25 million, Lankhorst Taselaar sells an
extensive array of parts and components, as well as offers next-day delivery to
nearly all its 3,000 customers, many of which are new to Mercury Marine's
network in the region.

The transaction is subject to usual and customary closing conditions including
relevant merger filings, and is expected to close in the third quarter.

"Lankhorst Taselaar will help Mercury to advance its presence and service
throughout Northern Europe, particularly in Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands
and Germany," explained John Pfeifer, president - Mercury Marine.  "It allows us
to more quickly accomplish our goals of increasing share in this important and
growing market, and the unified distribution network should greatly accelerate
the future growth of the combined operations, with a broader product line and an
expanded distribution network."

Lankhorst Taselaar's workforce consists of approximately 50 people and the
company will continue the planned move into a new state-of-the-art facility in
Heerenveen, the Netherlands, by the end of 2017.

The Lankhorst Taselaar acquisition is expected to have minimal impact upon
Brunswick's 2017 results, Brunswick Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mark
Schwabero explained.  Further, the impact of this type of transaction has
already been considered in Brunswick's 2018 plan, which was originally presented
to the financial community in November 2015.

"We continue to seek opportunities to strategically grow our marine and fitness
operations throughout the world," Schwabero explained.  "Lankhorst Taselaar will
bolster and solidify the distribution arm of our marine P&A business in Europe.
As we have done in recent years with BLA in Australia and Payne's Marine in
Canada, Lankhorst Taselaar expands our reach and customer responsiveness in the
global marine marketplace and offers us a larger footprint upon which to build
in Europe.

"Pursuing the Lankhorst Taselaar transaction is further evidence that Brunswick
is executing its strategy to add operations, particularly those in fitness and
marine P&A," Schwabero said.   "Including this and other completed acquisitions,
we continue to target $350 million of additional revenue from P&A acquisitions
by 2018, which was originally shared with the financial community in 2015."
