NAT’L – INDUSTRY INSIDER – Should Vista Outdoor or Olin Buy Remington’s Ammo Business?

Remington Arms, the oldest gunmaker in America, was forced to file for bankruptcy after its private-equity owners put the company under a heavy debt burden, making the guns and ammo manufacturer incapable of benefiting from the massive turnaround underway in the firearms market this year. Now, Remington is looking to sell off its ammunition business and has accepted a stalking horse bid of $65 million from JJE Capital, the private-equity firm that owns Palmetto State Armory, a South Carolina-based firearms manufacturer. A stalking horse bid sets the stage for competing offers, so if other buyers are interested, their bids will need to be higher or better. It’s a perfect time for Vista Outdoor (NYSE:VSTO) and Olin (NYSE:OLN) to consider stepping forward. Vista, Remington, and Olin are the three biggest ammunition manufacturers in the country, selling to consumers, law enforcement, and the military. Vista’s Federal line is the biggest ammunition brand on the market, but the company also sells other brands, including American Eagle and Speer. Although it exited the firearms market when it sold its Savage Arms business a year ago to focus more on outdoor markets, it kept a finger in the pie by retaining its shooting sports operation, which runs parallel to guns through sales of ammo and shooting accessories. That segment represented 68% of Vista’s revenue in fiscal 2020. Olin is better known as a specialty chemicals producer, but it has also owned the Winchester brand for 90 years, and ammo sales represent 11% of its total revenue. The Remington brand would be in good hands if either company were the buyer.  [full article]
