CHICAGO, July 25 Brunswick Corp posted
lower quarterly earnings on Thursday, as a series of one-time
charges offset a small improvement in sales of its recreational
boats and marine engines.
The Lake Forest, Illinois-based company, which also makes
fitness equipment and pool tables, reported a second-quarter
profit from continuing operations of $79.3 million, or 85 cents
a share, down from $94.0 million, or $1.03, a share a year
The results were pulled down by a flurry of one-time
restructuring-, tax- and debt-related charges.
Sales rose 4 percent to $1.1 billion.
