The company, which is parent to many well-known outdoor brands such as Bushnell, Savage Arms and Federal Premium Ammunition and dozens of others becomes a stand-alone, publicly traded outdoor sports and recreation company. 

“Today marks the creation of a new leading commercial and consumer-products company focused on innovative solutions, strategic customer partnerships, execution excellence and creating long-term shareholder value,” said Mark DeYoung, Vista Outdoor Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our consumers depend on our products to deliver quality and performance in a variety of outdoor environments and activities."

DeYoung went on to say that the company’s mission is to bring the world outside and to support and facilitate the success of outdoor enthusiasts as they strive to achieve their own rugged independence. “We are focused on delivering value to our customers, maintaining and increasing our market share, supporting communities where we do business and growing into adjacent markets through capturing both organic and external growth opportunities,” he said. “I am proud of the skilled and highly qualified executive leadership team we have assembled to lead Vista Outdoor and of our 5,800 passionate employees around the globe who are working to deliver quality products and services that support Vista Outdoor's business strategies.”
