Dear Recipient Name

Signs of a global economic recovery are reflected in the latest report from the Cannes Yachting Festival in France. Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) reported another record-setting display at the Festival, one of the premier trade shows in Europe, with outboard engine market share gains, major new product launches, and a global product award.

Mercury Marine set another record for engine share at the event, with 66% of the outboard engines on display, further solidifying its market share leadership position in Europe. This also marks the third consecutive year that Mercury has set a record share in Cannes as demand continues to be strong for high horsepower propulsion from European boat builders and consumers.

In addition, Brunswick Boat Group launched Navan, its new premium adventure boat brand which is part of the Quicksilver family, and the first two models in the Navan line-up, the C30 and S30. Both models were extremely well received by the public with orders exceeding expectations during the show, and strong dealer enthusiasm to carry the product.

And expectations are high for another European event in the New Year: boot Düsseldorf 2024 is heading for a top result. International market leaders will again be on board 20-28 January 2024 and the world's largest yachts and watersports show will follow on from its excellent pre-pandemic results. The show will feature international market leaders on board at the world's largest yachts and water sports fair; 16 exhibition halls with boats, yachts, boards, diving accessories and destinations; Blue innovation dock sustainability forum with outstanding expertise; ocean tribute and love your ocean campaign.

Commenting on this, Wolfram Diener, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, says: "We have had very successful talks with the manufacturers over the summer months and feel great enthusiasm and anticipation for boot 2024. In January, we will also be able to welcome back brands that took a break this year. In particular, we see very high international attendance from exhibitors. This means boot 2024 will reach the highest level, present wide and varied ranges for both water sports and destinations and will again position itself as the world-leading show for this industry."

Reflecting that optimism, Cruisers Yachts, a premier manufacturer of luxury yachts, has partnered with Alliance Construction on a 56,000-square-foot expansion to its Pulaski facility with a completion date of January 2024. Mark Pedersen, President of Cruisers Yachts, comments, "One of our core values is to look to the long term, and this expansion project is a testament to that belief. We have been looking to expand since we acquired the Pulaski facility in 2021.

"That plant is designed to build larger yachts, and this expansion provides us with a facility that aligns with our New Product Development plans for the next five years. Cruisers Yachts has embarked on this ambitious expansion project with a clear goal: to broaden its horizons and further elevate its yacht manufacturing process. The expansion comprises several key areas, each designed to enhance production and accommodate larger vessels."
