Conflict minerals

Dear Sir/Madam,

On August 22, 2012 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the final rules to implement Section 1502, the conflict minerals reporting obligations, of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Manex Sp. z o.o. is committed to complying with this legislation.

Manex Sp. z o.o. does not purchase tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold (3TG) directly from smelters or mines. Based on our purchasing policy, supplier selection process and information received from our major suppliers, we have no indication that our products contain minerals from conflict mines or smelters in and around the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

We fully understand the importance of this legislation and are diligently working towards our common goal of a socially responsible supply chain.
