Conflict Minerals Compliance Statement
Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and the Securities and Exchange Commission Rules adopted in connection therewith, require certain corporations to report the use of "Conflict Minerals" in the manufacture of their products. Generally, Conflict Minerals collectively refer to cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, including tantalum, tin, and tungsten, which originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or specified adjoining countries.
While we, as a privately held corporation, are not subject to the Conflict Minerals rules and reporting requirements, we understand that our customers may be, and we are committed to helping our customers comply with their reporting requirements.
There are only two minerals used by us that fall within the reporting requirement, these are gold and tin. We purchased products that may contain these minerals from a very limited number of well-established, United States-based suppliers, that fully comply with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Consequently, we can in turn represent that, to the best of our knowledge, our products do not contain Conflict Minerals.
We will continue to work with our key suppliers to ensure that we are able to identify the use of Conflict Minerals in our supply chain, and the representations made in this compliance statement remain accurate.
