Johnson Outdoors Inc. - Share in Consolidated Military Contract

Johnson Outdoors Inc. : 05 September, 2006  (New Product)
Johnson Outdoors Inc. One of Seven Vendors to Share in Consolidated Military Contract
Johnson Outdoors Inc. (Nasdaq:JOUT)hasannounced the Company, along with six other unrelated vendors, has been tapped for a contract covering a variety of military shelters, trailers and other military supply components. This marks the second year of the contract, originally announced in September 2005, under which total combined orders could range from a minimum value of $25,000 to a maximum cumulative total value of $96 million across all seven vendors combined. No orders have been placed with Johnson Outdoors under the renewed contract.

Last year the Company was named one of the multiple vendors eligible to share in the single contract consolidating military purchases for a variety of goods for all branches of service. Under the first year of the contract, the Company received twelve orders totaling $19.7 million.

On June 29, 2006 the Company announced the temporary closure of its production facility in Binghamton, New York, where U.S. military tents are made, due to flooding caused by heavy rains in the Northeast. Tent production resumed at the Binghamton plant in August. On August 25, 2006 the Company announced its most recent military tent order, and its continued expectation for fiscal 2006 military tent sales to be in the $30-$35 million range.

'At Johnson Outdoors, our commitment is to quality and service that is second to none. We are very pleased and honored to be recognized as a vendor-of-choice by the U.S. military,' said Helen Johnson-Leipold, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
