Conflict Minerals Statement

Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires publicly traded companies to report their use of “Conflict Minerals” (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Electrowire is not required to report to the SEC, However, we are actively conducting reasonable country of origin inquiries with our suppliers to support our customers.

The majority of our suppliers have stated their supply chains are “Conflict Free”; either their products do not contain the aforementioned metals or these metals do not originate from areas of conflict. Many suppliers are still determining smelter and mine of origin. A small number are still performing their supply chain investigation and have not provided a conclusive response. We will do our best to ensure we have significant statements from these suppliers. Electrowire uses the EICC GeSI Conflict Mineral Reporting Template as its primary method of performing supply chain investigation and reasonable country of origin inquiries.

Upon request, Electrowire can provide statements on the presence and origin of “Conflict Minerals” in the supply chain of specific finished good part numbers.
