ATK Creates Two Standalone Companies - Vista Outdoor and Orbital ATK

In April, 2014, ATK announced that its Board of Directors unanimously approved the creation of two independent, publicly traded companies through the tax-free spin-off of ATK’s Sporting Group and a merger between Orbital Sciences Corporate and ATK’s Aerospace and Defense Groups.


The Sporting and Aerospace and Defense businesses operated in fundamentally different segments with different strategies, operating dynamics and compliance requirements. The transaction, completed in February, 2015, allowed Vista Outdoor (the spin-off of ATK’s Sporting Group) and Orbital ATK (the merger of Orbital Sciences Corporate and ATK's Aerospace and Defense Groups) to focus on their respective markets, take advantages of growth opportunities, unique capabilities and inherent strengths.
