Brunswick Corporation : Brunswick announces amendment to revolving credit facility

LAKE FOREST, Ill., June 30, 2016 - Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) announced
today that it and a group of financial institutions have amended and extended
the Company's revolving credit facility.  The extended facility will be in
effect through June 2021, and remains at $300 million providing Brunswick more
favorable terms in light of its strong operating performance and credit

Brunswick believes the amended facility provides adequate levels of credit
availability and supplements its current strong cash position as well as offers
the Company increased flexibility.  The new terms eliminate all security
provisions and ease certain financial covenants.

"The terms of the amended revolver are commensurate with those of an investment
grade company, recognizing our stronger balance sheet and solid operating
performance," explained Brunswick Senior Vice President and Chief Financial
Officer William L. Metzger.  Brunswick was recently upgraded to investment grade
(Baa3) by Moody's Investors Service.

There are no current borrowings under the facility; however, previously issued
letters of credit total approximately $4 million.  JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.;
Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated; and Wells Fargo Securities,
LLC led the syndication group for the amended and extended facility.

Additional information concerning the revolving credit facility can be found in
the Current Report on Form 8-K filed today by the Company.

Joint venture agreement also modified
In addition to the amended credit facility, Brunswick Financial Services has
agreed with Wells Fargo Commercial Distribution Finance to amend the terms of
its joint venture agreement. The amendment will synchronize the leverage
coverage covenants among the respective joint venture and credit facility
agreements.  The joint venture, Brunswick Acceptance Company (BAC), began
operations in 2003, with the terms of the current agreement in effect through
2019.   BAC provides wholesale floor plan financing for qualifying Brunswick
marine dealers.
