Scientific Games Corporation Conflict Minerals Global Policy
In 2010, Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank”) requiring the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to issue rules specifically related to disclosures regarding the use of “Conflict Minerals” within manufactured products. Conflict Minerals are defined as columbite-tantalite (also known as coltan), cassiterite, wolframite, and their respective derivatives (tantalum, tin, and tungsten) and gold originating from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) and its adjoining countries (collectively, the “DRC Region”). The SEC rules require all SEC registrants whose commercial products contain Conflict Minerals to determine whether the minerals originated from the DRC Region, and, if so, whether they are conflict free (e.g., not used to support nongovernmental armed groups).
Scientific Games Corporation and all of its subsidiaries (“Scientific Games”) are committed to complying with Dodd-Frank’s disclosure requirements related to conflict minerals, and it expects its suppliers to support Scientific Games’s efforts to comply with these disclosure requirements.
Expectations of Suppliers
Scientific Games expects its suppliers to support the company’s efforts to comply with Dodd-Frank’s conflict minerals reporting rules. In particular, Scientific Games expects its suppliers to:
(i) complete Scientific Games’ Conflict Minerals survey, identifying products they sell to Scientific Games or its subsidiaries that contain Conflict Minerals; (ii) cooperate with any Scientific Games’s country of origin due diligence; and (iii) when Scientific Games deems it necessary, provide all information reasonably available to the supplier that is necessary to complete the country of origin diligence certification required by Scientific Games.
This policy applies to all products manufactured and contracted to be manufactured by, or on behalf of, Scientific Games and its subsidiaries anywhere in the world.
