Story continues below

On December 5, 2017, the Board of Directors of Brunswick Corporation (the "Company") authorized the Company to exit its Sea Ray businesses, including the Meridian brand, as a result of, among other things, a change in strategic direction and a review of the expected future cash flows, market conditions and business trends.The decision to exit will result in these businesses being accounted for as discontinued operations. The Company expects that it will incur a loss and resulting charge in connection with the sale of these businesses. As the Company is very early in the sale process, it is unable to make an estimate of the amount, or range of amounts, of the charge at this time.
