Section 7 Regulation FD

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On September 29, 2017, Johnson Outdoors Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K disclosing the Company's issuance of a press release announcing approval by the Board of Directors of a quarterly cash dividend payable on October 27, 2017 to shareholders of record at the close of business on October 13, 2017 (the “Press Release”). Subsequent to the issuance of the Press Release and the filing of the Form 8-K report related thereto, the Company learned that the Press Release incorrectly reported the quarterly cash dividend on the Company’s Class A shares as $0.010 per share. The correct amount of the quarterly cash dividend on the Company’s Class A shares should have been reported as $0.100 per share.

The information in this Form 8-K is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liability of that Section, nor shall such information be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as otherwise stated in such filing.
