Vista Outdoors Inc., which was incorporated in 2015, is headquartered in Anoka, MN. They are a designer, manufacturer, and marketer of shooting sports and outdoor recreational products and operate twenty-six manufacturing and distribution facilities across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. One of Vista Outdoor's major keys to success is that they are the parent company of 41 brands that also design and manufacture sporting and outdoor products. On May 5, 2022, Vista Outdoor announced a plan to separate their Outdoor Products and Sporting Products reportable segments into two independent, publicly-traded companies. This separation is expected to be completed in the calendar year 2023. Vista believes this will be compelling value for shareholders. Overall, Vista Outdoor is a profitable company and will continue to have success in the future. In recent years they have had devastating impairment losses, which might happen again, but historically they have been profitable. Vista Outdoor is a profitable and successful company with a good firm strategy.
