The mining and trading of Coltan (the metal ore from which Tantalum is extracted), Wolframite (the metal ore from which Tungsten is extracted), Cassiterite (the metal ore from which Tin is extracted), and Gold,
and their respective derivatives (“3TG Minerals”), originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) or adjoining countries has financed conflict that has resulted in widespread human rights violations and
environmental degradation. The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted rules implementing the conflict minerals provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act (“Conflict Minerals Rules”). This requires SEC reporting companies to undertake an inquiry as to the source and chain of custody of 3TG Minerals and
to annually report whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture, for which 3TG Minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of those products, contain conflict minerals that originated in the DRC or adjoining countries. If this is the case, the source and chain of custody of those 3TG Minerals must also be reported.
