Business Segments Description

Marine Engine Segment

Mercury Marine manufactures and markets a full range of sterndrive engines, inboard engines, outboard engines and water-jet propulsion systems under the Mercury, Mercury MerCruiser, Mariner, Mercury Racing, Mercury SportJet and Mercury Jet Drive brand names. Mercury Marine’s sterndrives, inboard engines, water-jet propulsion systems and a substantial number of its outboard engines are sold either to independent boatbuilders or to the Company’s operations that comprise the Brunswick Boat Group. In addition, Mercury Marine’s outboard engines and parts and accessories, including marine electronics and control integration systems, steering systems, instruments, controls, propellers, trolling motors, service aids and marine lubricants, are sold to end-users through a global network of approximately 12,000 marine dealers and distributors, specialty marine retailers, and marine service centers. Mercury Marine, through Cummins MerCruiser Diesel Marine LLC (CMD), its joint venture with Cummins Marine, a division of Cummins Inc., supplies integrated diesel propulsion systems to the worldwide recreational and commercial marine markets, including the Company’s Brunswick Boat Group.

Mercury Marine manufactures nine two-stroke OptiMax outboard engines, ranging from 75 to 250 horsepower, all of which feature Mercury’s direct fuel injection  (DFI) technology. DFI is part of Mercury’s plan to comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements and reduce outboard engine emissions 75  percent over a nine-year period beginning with the 1998 model year and ending in 2006. Mercury’s product line of low-emission engines includes 13 four-stroke outboard engine models ranging from 4 to 115 horsepower and one 225-horsepower model. In 2004, Mercury Marine introduced Verado, a new series of high-horsepower outboard engines to complement its existing four-stroke product line. Mercury’s OptiMax and four-stroke outboards already achieve the EPA’s mandated 2006 emission levels.

Mercury Marine’s sterndrive engines and outboard engines are produced primarily in Oklahoma and Wisconsin, respectively. Certain small outboard engines are manufactured in Japan by a Mercury Marine joint venture. In addition, Mercury Marine sources some outboard engines and some key components from Asian suppliers. Mercury Marine also manufactures engine component parts at plants in Florida and Mexico, and has a facility in Belgium that customizes engines for sale into Europe. Diesel marine propulsion systems are manufactured in South Carolina by CMD.

In addition to its marine engine operations, Mercury Marine’s product offerings in international markets include a wide range of aluminum, fiberglass and inflatable boats produced either by, or for, Mercury in Australia, Poland and Sweden. These boats are marketed under the brand names Armor, Arvor, Bermuda, Legend, Mercury, Örnvik, Protector, Quicksilver, Savage and Uttern and are typically equipped with engines manufactured by Mercury Marine and often include other parts and accessories supplied by Mercury Marine. Mercury Marine has an equity ownership interest in companies that manufacture boats under the brand names Askeladden, Bella, Rayglass and Valiant, which are produced in Norway, Finland, New Zealand and Portugal, respectively. Mercury Marine also manufactures custom and standard propellers and underwater stern gear for inboard-powered vessels, under the name Teignbridge, in the United Kingdom.

During 2003, Mercury Marine continued to grow its aluminum metal castings business, which sells custom products to a variety of industries, including the motorcycle, agricultural implement and off-road recreational vehicle businesses. The Company anticipates that Mercury’s castings business will continue to grow, and intends to identify other areas of expertise across its businesses that can be similarly leveraged in industries beyond the Company’s core businesses.

Mercury Marine’s SmartCraft system, a total marine electronics and controls integration system, leverages Mercury’s advanced engine technology by linking all essential boat functions, including power, controls, and internal and external sensors, to provide synchronized data and control over all essential boat functions. SmartCraft systems also allow Mercury and its customers to take advantage of advances in communications, entertainment and navigation electronics by providing a platform to integrate these technologies to enhance the boating experience.

The Company established Brunswick New Technologies (BNT) during 2002 to expand the Company’s product offerings in marine electronics, engine controls, navigation systems, dealer management systems and related equipment for use in both marine and non-marine applications. BNT is comprised of: MotoTron, which leverages the Company’s expertise in engine controls to non-marine markets; Northstar Technologies, a world leader in premium marine navigation electronics; and Monolith Corporation/Integrated Dealer Systems, a leading developer of dealer management systems for dealers of marine products and recreational vehicles. To complement BNT’s expertise, the Company acquired 70 percent of the stock of Navman NZ Limited, a New Zealand-based leader in global positioning systems-based products and marine electronics, in the second quarter of 2003. BNT also acquired New Eagle Software and Accelerate Performance Products, both software development companies for marine and non-marine markets, in 2003 to further enhance BNT’s product and service offerings in engine controls.

The Boat Group also operates a commercial and governmental sales unit that sells products to the United States Government and state, local and foreign governments for military, law enforcement and other activities, and to commercial customers for use in a variety of applications. Sales of Boston Whaler, Baja and various inflatable boats represent the majority of the Boat Group’s governmental and commercial sales. The Boat Group procures most of its outboard motors, gasoline sterndrives and gasoline inboard engines from Mercury Marine, and diesel engines from CMD.

The Boat Group has manufacturing facilities in Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon and Tennessee, as well as international manufacturing facilities in Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

Life Fitness also sells its products into the high-end consumer markets. Approximately 10 percent of the Fitness segment’s 2003 sales were made through Omni Fitness, a chain of specialty fitness equipment retail stores owned and operated by the Company since 2001. Omni Fitness sells consumer products for Life Fitness, as well as fitness products manufactured by other companies. Most of Life Fitness’ remaining consumer sales are to other specialty fitness retailers, including chains in which the Company has minority ownership interests.

The Fitness segment’s principal manufacturing facilities are located in Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota and Hungary. The Fitness segment also operates 45 Omni Fitness specialty fitness retail stores located primarily in the Northeast region of the United States.

During 2002 and 2003, Life Fitness introduced more than 90 new fitness products, including new elliptical cross trainers, treadmills, stationary bikes, stairclimbers, home gym products, commercial selectorized strength training equipment and a series of cable motion machines

The entertainment offerings available at Brunswick Zones are designed to appeal to a broad audience, including families and other recreational bowlers, as well as traditional league bowlers. BB&B intends to convert eight additional centers in 2004 into Brunswick Zones and open two new centers, supporting the Company’s strategy to increase market share.

The Company believes it has the largest dollar sales volume of billiards tables in the world.

In 2003, BB&B opened a retail billiards store in a northern suburb of Chicago as a means of expanding distribution and testing retail concepts.
