Gander Outdoors and Overton's Announce Existing Retail Stores Expected to Remain Open Following Recent Acquisition by Camping World

LINCOLNSHIRE, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/17 -- On May 1, 2017, Camping World Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CWH) ("Camping World"), the nation's largest network of RV-centric retail locations and only provider of a comprehensive portfolio of services, protection plans, products and resources for the outdoor enthusiast, announced the planned acquisition of certain assets of Gander Mountain Company ("Gander Mountain") and its Overton's, Inc. ("Overton's") boating business, following Camping World's successful bid for certain assets of Gander Mountain and Overton's in a bankruptcy auction on April 27, 2017 and April 28, 2017. On May 4, 2017, the transaction was approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota (the "Bankruptcy Court").

On May 5, 2017, CWI, Inc., an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Camping World, entered into an asset purchase agreement (the "Agreement") with Gander Mountain. As part of the Agreement, Camping World obtained the right to designate any real estate leases for assignment to Camping World or other third parties. Following Camping World's successful bid in the bankruptcy process, Marcus Lemonis, Chairman of Camping World Holdings, stated his intention of operating stores with a clear path to profitability and Camping World's then current goal to operate seventy or more locations subject to, among other things, the ability to negotiate acceptable lease terms with landlords.

Lemonis stated, "Our original goal was to initially open seventy or more stores, and while our initial list is now less than seventy, we are not willing to open stores which we do not believe have a clear path to profitability." Assuming details can be worked out with landlords and final acceptable leases agreed to, the following locations are expected to reopen under the new Gander Outdoors and Overton's brand, with a fresh offering of Gander Outdoors, Overton's and Camping World products and services:
