RACINE, Wis. -- June 29, 2006 -- Johnson Outdoors Inc. (NASDAQ:JOUT), a leading global outdoor recreation company, today announced the temporary closure of the Company's Binghamton, New York plant and administrative offices due to flooding from heavy rains. Binghamton is home to Johnson Outdoors' Outdoor Equipment Group business, which makes and markets consumer, commercial and military tents and camping equipment.
The Company's finished goods warehouse has been unaffected by the flooding and remains open, with shipments expected to resume once local roads have reopened next week.

Employee safety and well-being is the Company's primary concern at this time, and efforts are already underway to bring operations back on-line as quickly as possible. At this time, neither the full extent of damage nor the financial impact due to the flooding is known. The Company expects insurance coverage to begin after approximately $1.2 million in losses are incurred.
