Issue of Conflict Minerals

Since minerals including tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold mined in Democratic Republic of the Congo and peripheral nine countries are sometimes used as funding source for armed groups that promote inhumane acts, The United States revised financial regulation (Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act) in July 2010 to regulate those four minerals as "Conflict Minerals" and to require US listed companies to report usage of those minerals to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

In agreeing with the concept of the revised regulation for fulfilling our social responsibility in procurement activities, Tomoe won't procure minerals that will benefit the inhumane armed groups in cooperation with business partners in spite of our no obligation to report SEC directly.

We will instantly terminate the procurement businesses whenever the minerals are turned out to be related to the inhumane armed groups located in Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
