Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On October 29, 2020, Brunswick Corporation ('Brunswick') announced its financial results for the third quarter 2020. The news release Brunswick issued announcing its third quarter 2020 earnings is incorporated herein by reference and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

In the news release, Brunswick uses non-GAAP financial measures. A 'non-GAAP financial measure' is a numerical measure of a registrant's historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of operations, balance sheets, or statements of cash flows of the issuer; or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Operating and statistical measures and certain ratios and other statistical measures are not non-GAAP financial measures. GAAP refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

Brunswick has used certain of the financial measures that are included in the news release for several years, both in presenting its results to shareholders and the investment community and in its internal evaluation and management of its businesses. Brunswick's management believes that these measures (including those that are non-GAAP financial measures) and the information they provide are useful to investors because they permit investors to view Brunswick's performance using the same tools that Brunswick uses and to better evaluate Brunswick's ongoing business performance.

The measure diluted earnings per common share (EPS), as adjusted, is believed to be useful to investors because it represents a
measure of Brunswick's earnings, without the impact of certain charges that do not reflect the Company's ongoing business performance. Brunswick defines this measure as diluted earnings (loss) per common share from continuing operations, excluding the earnings per share impact of restructuring, exit and impairment charges; purchase accounting amortization; acquisition and IT-related costs; pension settlement charges; transaction financing charges; special tax items; and other applicable charges. Brunswick's management also believes that the measures adjusted operating earnings and adjusted pretax earnings are useful to investors because they provide a necessary and important perspective on Brunswick's operating performance and improve comparability of performance against prior periods. Brunswick defines adjusted operating earnings as operating earnings (loss), excluding the earnings impact of restructuring, exit, and impairment charges; purchase accounting amortization; acquisition and IT-related costs; and other non-recurring or applicable charges. Brunswick defines adjusted pretax earnings as earnings (loss) before income taxes, excluding the earnings impact of restructuring, exit, and impairment charges; purchase accounting amortization; acquisition and IT-related costs; pension settlement charges; transaction financing charges andother applicable charges. Brunswick's management believes that the non-GAAP financial measure free cash flow is useful to investors because it is an indication of cash flow that may be available to fund investments in future growth initiatives. Brunswick defines 'Free cash flow' as cash flow from operating and investing activities of continuing operations (excluding cash provided by or used for acquisitions, investments, purchases or sales/maturities of marketable securities and other investing activities) and the effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents. Brunswick does not provide forward-looking guidance for certain financial measures on a GAAP basis because it is unable to predict certain items contained in the GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts. These items may include restructuring, exit, and impairment charges, special tax items, acquisition-related costs, and certain other unusual adjustments.

To reflect the impact of changes in currency exchange rates on net sales, Brunswick may use constant currency reporting. To present this information, net sales transacted in currencies other than U.S. dollars are translated to U.S. dollars using prior year exchange rates for the comparative period, using the average exchange rates in effect during that period. The percentage change in net sales expressed on a constant currency basis may better reflect changes in the underlying business trends, excluding the impact of translation arising from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

The information in this report and the exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed 'filed' for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
