Response to the Conflict Minerals Issue

Hitachi High-Tech Group's policy is to not use conflict minerals in our products and commercial goods. Conflict minerals include columbite-tantalite, cassiterite, gold, and wolframite, mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the "DRC") and adjoining countries (together the "DRC countries"), which may be used to finance conflicts. Hitachi High-Tech has constructed a conflict minerals survey for suppliers and is promoting it within the company. We will continue our efforts to procure minerals that are not mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses.
