Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law in July 2010. Part of this law directed the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to implement rules which obligated public companies to disclose their use of "conflict minerals" (tungsten, tantalum, tin and gold) that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country ("Conflict Region").

The goal of the SEC rule is to help eliminate civil conflict and human rights abuses in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ("DRC") - abuses which are committed by armed militant groups - by cutting off the revenue that these militant groups derive from those mines that produce conflict minerals.

Although Kepco is not a publicly traded company, Kepco, Inc. supports the goals of the U.S. legislation on the supply of "conflict minerals". Kepco does not directly purchase raw metal ores from smelters or mines, that may ultimately be used in our product's components. We are many supply chain layers removed from the mining and processing of these metals.

  1. Kepco, Inc. supports the goals of the U.S. legislation on the supply of "conflict minerals";
  2. Kepco does not knowingly procure material with "conflict minerals" that originate from facilities in the "Conflict Region" that are not certified as "conflict free" and
  3. Kepco encourages our suppliers to support the goals of the conflict minerals legislation by providing information on the origin of their components on their websites and assuring that their supply chains are sourcing responsibly.
Kepco will, in good faith, exercise all available avenues to ensure compliance.
