Vista Outdoor believes that a solid commitment to corporate governance is critical to establishing trust and credibility with investors. This commitment serves as a framework for principled leadership, responsible decision-making, monitoring of financial performance and compliance with legal requirements.
Our business is managed through the oversight and direction of our Board of Directors. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines include qualifications for directors, guidelines for determining director independence and provisions for reporting concerns to the Board’s Audit Committee regarding accounting, internal controls and directors’ potential conflicts of interest. Our committee charters are also available in this section of the website. Group meetings of our independent directors are part of all regularly scheduled meetings of the board. The independent, non-executive board chairman is designated as chair of the independent director meetings.
We are committed to conducting business in an ethically and socially responsible manner. We expect all employees to fully comply with the Code of Business Ethics, which serves as a foundation for everything we do—from how we conduct business and make decisions to how we treat each other. The Corporate Social Responsibility stance reinforces this commitment.
The charters of the board committees are also available in this section of our website. The board regularly compares our policies, guidelines and committee charters to best-practice standards and reviews corporate governance developments, including legal and regulatory changes and makes modifications as warranted.
