Remington Assets to Be Split, Bidders Revealed

New Bankruptcy Court Filings
; .

Founded in 1816, Remington is one of the oldest firearm manufacturers in the United States, producing handguns, rifles, shotguns and ammunition for military, law enforcement and civilian markets for more than 200 years. Yet, despite its storied history, Remington Outdoor Company — a family of brands that include Remington Arms Company, Marlin Firearms, Barnes Bullets, Advanced Armament Corp., Dakota Arms and others — has struggled in recent years.

In 2018, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after falling $950 million in debt, citing lawsuits and legal fees following mass shootings and public backlash. After a quick transfer of ownership, the company restructured but has continued to struggle. In July, Remington Outdoor Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy a second time in as many years, filing a motion to sell all of their assets.

Last month, U.S. Bankruptcy Court entered an order approving bidding and auction procedures, further revealing leading and backup bidders for the company’s assets. The following bids for Remington Outdoor Company assets were revealed, and have since been confirmed and finalized, in court documents:
