In 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") issued rules implementing the "conflict minerals" disclosure requirements of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Conflict Minerals Rules"). These Rules require Radware to undertake reasonable due diligence steps to determine if any of its products contain tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold ("3TG") originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo ("DRC") and bordering countries and to report to the SEC on its 3TG inquiries and the potential use of 3TG in its products.

Radware supports industry efforts to move toward a conflict mineral-free electronics supply chain. To that end, we are working closely with our contract manufacturers and key suppliers to examine the supply chain for our products and identify components, if any, which may contain conflict minerals. Our due diligence measures have been designed to conform, in all material respects, with the framework in The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (OECD Guidance) and the related Supplements for gold and for tin, tantalum and tungsten. Our goal will be to ensure and verify that these components do not come from implicated conflict zones.
