Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick Innovation Laboratory to Open In Research Park at the University of Illinois

LAKE FOREST, Ill. March 28, 2017 - Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) today
announced it will soon open the Brunswick Innovation Laboratory in the Research
Park at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The Innovation Lab will augment the considerable research and development
activity the Company currently conducts across all of its primary lines of
business, including marine engine, pleasure boats and fitness equipment.
Brunswick spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year on research and
development in a continuous effort to drive innovation into its new products, to
enhance existing products and to improve its manufacturing processes.  These
efforts have been solidly productive as the Company continues to outpace its
competition in the introduction of new products to market as well as securing
patents on its technologies and features.  In 2016, Brunswick ranked among the
top 25 Illinois-based companies in securing patents.

This newly established research arm for Brunswick will be under the direction of
Troy Kollmann, who was formerly manager, innovation processes and emerging
technologies, at Brunswick's Mercury Marine division.

"The Research Park's intimate connection with the University of Illinois, with
its resources and talented students and faculty, is particularly enticing for
Brunswick as well as other firms seeking to expand their understanding and
deployment of technologies to advance their products and open new avenues to
grow their businesses," explained David Foulkes, Brunswick's vice president and
chief technology officer.
"The technical resources at the University of Illinois are among the most highly
regarded in the nation, as are its engineering programs.  These strengths, along
with other companies within the park, offer an atmosphere conducive to
collaboration and learning," Foulkes concluded.

More than 100 companies, including industry leaders such as Abbott, John Deere
and Yahoo, have facilities within the 200-acre research park, which is adjacent
to the university's campus.

Research Park Director, Laura Frerichs, expressed the University of Illinois'
support for welcoming Brunswick: "We are pleased to begin this partnership in
innovation with Brunswick, which will both engage students in building new
technology as well as provide opportunities to collaborate with University of
Illinois researchers."

The Brunswick Innovation Lab will work closely with Brunswick corporate and
divisional resources to further accelerate Brunswick's progress in its areas of
high interest, including the Internet of Things, advanced analytics, and a range
of human-machine interaction and enhanced user-experience technologies.

The Innovation Lab will initially occupy a temporary location beginning in April
before moving into its permanent location in what will be the Research Park's
newest building, currently under construction and expected to be completed and
ready for occupancy at the end of 2017.
