Vista Outdoor Acquires Foresight Sports

Vista Outdoor today announced the successful closing of its acquisition of Foresight Sports. The acquisition brings two iconic golf brands, Foresight Sports and Bushnell Golf, together under the same roof.

“It is a pleasure to welcome the team from Foresight Sports to the Vista Outdoor family,” said Vista Outdoor Chief Executive Officer Chris Metz. “Their hard work and pioneering innovation have permanently changed the golf tech landscape, and when combined with the strength of our Bushnell Golf brand, elevates Vista Outdoor to a market leader in this exciting category. Our portfolio now includes market-leading solutions in hardware development, golf data collection, game improvement, gamification and golf accuracy. The market growth opportunities in this space, combined with its impressive operating margins, make our combined golf business a powerful financial engine for delivering value for Vista Outdoor’s shareholders now, and into the future.  The acquisition also further bolsters our reputation as the acquirer of choice in the outdoor industry.”

Foresight Sports has innovated both on- and off-course categories, with the most launch monitors and golf simulation solutions in retail stores, driving ranges, commercial facilities and homes worldwide. The Foresight Sports’ GCQuad launch monitor has been awarded Golf Digest’s Editors’ Choice Award for Best Launch Monitor for four consecutive years, and the product has become the launch monitor of choice for more PGA Tour players, top golf retailers and manufacturers, and coaches and fitters than any other technology. Beyond launch monitor technology, the company’s Sim-In-A-Box line of golf simulators represents an entirely new category of compact, affordable indoor golf solutions that in just two years have commanded a leading share of the global simulator market.

Earlier this year, Vista Outdoor brand Bushnell Golf entered into an exclusive domestic partnership with Foresight Sports to bring pro-level launch monitor technology to the everyday golfer. The Launch Pro, a personal launch monitor built on the industry’s best and most widely accepted technology, will be available for purchase at BushnellGolf.com and select golf retail outlets nationwide this Fall.
