Conflict Minerals Statement

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued the final

conflict minerals rule under section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer

Protection Act (the “Conflict Minerals Rule”). The Conflict Minerals Rule requires publically

traded companies to report annually the presence of conflict minerals (tin, tungsten, tantalum

and gold, or “3TG”) originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”).
