CONFLICT MINERALS STATEMENT
To who it may concern:
Memex Inc. (“Memex”) is keenly aware of many environmental and corporate social responsibility issues facing the manufacturing industry today and is working closely with our supplier chain to ensure compliance with regards to the Conflict Minerals issue relating to the DRC.
Electronics components contain various metals – including tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold. These four metals are sourced worldwide, including the Eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where millions have died in a civil war that has persisted for more than a decade. Armed militias profit from the trade of these metals in the DRC and nearby countries in the Conflict Region.
We support the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and the related U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rule that promotes transparency and consumer awareness regarding the use of “Conflict Minerals” and seeks to cut direct and indirect funding of armed groups engaged in conflict and human rights abuses in the Conflict Region.
Memex does not directly purchase any Conflict Minerals from any source and does not knowingly procure any product containing Conflict Minerals from the Conflict Region. To the extent that Memex’s electronics components may include various sub-components and assemblies that contain “Conflict Minerals” that are necessary to the functionality or production of our products, Memex is committed to working with our supply chain to provide transparency regarding the origin and traceability of minerals contained in our products.
We encourage our suppliers to adopt similar policies and management systems with respect to Conflict Minerals and to drive those efforts throughout their supply chain to ensure that the specified metals are being sourced only from mines and smelters outside the “Conflict Region” or mines and smelters within the Conflict Region which have been certified by an independent third party as “conflict free.”
