American Mobile Power is aware of conflict minerals and the recently enacted Conflict Minerals Rule (Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act) by the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding disclosure of conflict minerals sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo and surrounding areas (DRC Countries).
The rule applies to United States publicly traded companies using conflict minerals and that the minerals are "necessary to the functionality of production" of a product manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the company. The minerals at issue are tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold (3TG) originating from the DRC, Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
As a foreign-owned company, American Mobile Power will not be subject to the requirements of the rule. Regardless, American Mobile Power is currently unaware of any products that have been provided to us that contain conflict minerals sourced from the conflict regions. Therefore, American Mobile Power cannot attest to the origin of any conflict minerals that may or may not be present in products manufactured by other companies or that the products American Mobile Power distributes are conflict free.
American Mobile Power supports our suppliers in the effort to track conflict minerals in their supply chain and to educate customers about this important issue. American Mobile Power is also developing and implementing processes to address our role in the supply chain. As this rule develops and more manufacturers are able to report on their supply chain, American Mobile Power will make this information available to our customers.
