CONFLICT MINERALS REPORT

NETGEAR, INC.

In accordance with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

for the Calendar Year Ended December 31, 2020

 

Introduction

 

Rule 13p-1 was adopted by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to Conflict Minerals as directed by Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. Rule 13p-1 imposes certain reporting obligations on SEC registrants whose products contain Conflict Minerals necessary to the functionality or production of their products. Conflict Minerals are defined by Rule 13p-1 as (A) cassiterite, columbite-tantalite (coltan), gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tungsten, tantalum, and gold (collectively, “3TG”); or (B) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Covered Countries (as defined below).

 

If a registrant has reason to believe that any 3TGs in their supply chain may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country (“Covered Countries”), or if they are unable to determine the country of origin of the 3TGs in their products, or that their products are manufactured entirely from recycled and scrap sources, then the issuer must exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the 3TGs. The registrant must annually submit a Form SD and Conflict Minerals Report (“CMR”) to the SEC that includes a description of those due diligence measures. NETGEAR, Inc. (“NETGEAR” or the “Company”) has determined that 3TGs are necessary to the functionality or production of some of its products during the 2020 calendar year and therefore, is required to perform due diligence and file this report annually. This report is NETGEAR’s CMR for the reporting calendar year ended December 31, 2020.

 

This report is not audited, as Rule 13p-1 and current SEC guidance provide that if the registrant is not declaring products as “DRC Conflict Free,” the CMR is not subject to an independent private sector audit.

 

Section 1 – Company Overview

 

NETGEAR was incorporated in Delaware in January 1996. The Company is a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers. The Company’s products are built on a variety of proven technologies such as wireless (WiFi and LTE), Ethernet and powerline, with a focus on reliability and ease-of-use. The product line consists of wired and wireless devices that enable networking, broadband access and network connectivity. These products are available in multiple configurations to address the needs of the end-users in each geographic region in which the Company’s products are sold. NETGEAR utilizes contract manufacturers, original design manufacturers and component vendors to supply components, assemblies, and finished products.

 

NETGEAR’s internet address is www.netgear.com. This CMR will be posted on the Company’s website with other SEC filings under About Us/Investor Relations as soon as reasonably practicable after it is electronically filed with the SEC.

 

1.1 NETGEAR Products

 

During 2020, NETGEAR’s product portfolio was comprised of the following product categories:

 

 

Ethernet switches, which are multiple port devices used to network computing devices and peripherals via Ethernet wiring;

 

Wireless controllers and access points, which are devices used to manage and control multiple WiFi base stations on a campus or a facility providing WiFi connections to smart phones, tablets, laptops and other computing devices;

Meural, a network-connected LCD display that can download and display arts from Netgear/Meural digital library as well as any personal content that the individual has uploaded to the Netgear/Meural cloud or the LCD display

 

We conducted an analysis of NETGEAR products and found that small quantities of 3TG, necessary to their functionality or production, are found in substantially all NETGEAR products.

 

1.2 Conflict Minerals Report

 

For all product categories listed under 1.1, we have been unable to conclusively determine the origin of the 3TGs that our products contain, or to conclusively determine to what extent they come from recycled or scrap sources; the facilities used to process them; their country of origin; or their mine or location of origin. Our suppliers reported at broad levels, often with the declaration scope as “Company” in their Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”).

 

This report describes our Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) efforts, the due diligence measures we took on the 3TG source and chain of custody, the results of our due diligence efforts, expected risk assessment and mitigation steps.

 

1.3 Conflict Minerals Policy

 

NETGEAR has published its conflict minerals policy on its webpage located at:

http://www.netgear.com/images/conflict_minerals_policy_statement.pdf

 

Section 2 – Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”)

 

To determine whether the necessary 3TG in our products originated in Covered Countries, NETGEAR retained Assent Compliance (“Assent”), a third-party service provider, to assist us in reviewing the supply chain and identifying risks. We provided a list composed of suppliers and parts associated with the in-scope products to Assent.

 

To collect data on the materials’ sources of origin procured by the supply chain, NETGEAR utilized the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) version 6.0 or higher to conduct a survey of all in scope Tier 1* suppliers.

 

*NETGEAR’s definition of Tier 1 Supplier – ODM (Original Design Manufacturer), CM (Contract Manufacturer) and NETGEAR’s AVL (Approved Vendor List) with whom NETGEAR has placed purchase order directly. This excludes the following suppliers: Suppliers where strategic purchasing only performs a reference price check; Plastics and software suppliers; Packaging suppliers; and Suppliers whose materials declarations confirm gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten are not contained in the applicable component.

 

During the supplier survey, the Company contacted suppliers via platform provided by third-party Assent that enables users to complete and track supplier communications and allows suppliers to upload completed CMRTs directly to the platform for validation, assessment and management. The platform also provides functionality that meets the OECD Guidance process expectations by evaluating the quality of each supplier response and assigning a health score based on the supplier’s declaration of process engagement. Additionally, the metrics provided in this report, as well as the step-by-step process for supplier engagement and upstream due diligence investigations performed, are managed through this platform.

 

 

2


 

 

 

NETGEAR requested that all suppliers complete a CMRT. Training and education to guide suppliers on best practices and the use of this template was included. All communications in the third-party’s platform for future reporting and transparency are monitored and tracked. NETGEAR directly contacted suppliers that were unresponsive to third-party’s communications during the diligence process and requested these suppliers complete the CMRT and submit it to our third-party.

 

The Company’s program continues to include automated data validation on all submitted CMRTs. The goal of data validation is to increase the accuracy of submissions and identify any contradictory answers in the CMRT. This data validation is based on questions within the declaration tab of the CMRT which helps to identify areas that require further classification or risk assessment, as well as understand the due diligence efforts of the Tier 1 suppliers. The results of this data validation contribute to the program’s health assessment and are shared with the suppliers to ensure they understand areas that require clarification or improvement.

 

All submitted forms are accepted and classified as valid or invalid so that data is retained. Suppliers are contacted regarding invalid forms and are encouraged to submit a valid form. Suppliers are also provided with guidance on how to correct these validation errors in the form of feedback to their CMRT submission, training courses and direct engagement help through Third Party’s multilingual Supplier Experience team.

 

As of March 18th, 2021, there were 23 suppliers in scope of the conflict minerals program and all of them provided a completed CMRT. NETGEAR’s total response rate for this reporting year was 100%.

 

Based on the findings through the RCOI process, the Company was able to determine the countries of origin for a large portion of the 3TGs in its products. As such, NETGEAR continued to perform further due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the minerals in question.

 

Section 3 – Conflict Minerals Due Diligence Program

 

NETGEAR designed its due diligence measures to conform, in all material respects, with the framework in the OECD Guidance and the related supplements. The program aligns with the five steps for due diligence that are described by the OECD Guidance and the Company continues to evaluate market expectations for data collection and reporting to achieve continuous improvement opportunities.

 

Due diligence requires the Company’s necessary reliance on data provided by direct suppliers and third-party audit programs. There is a risk of incomplete or inaccurate data as the process cannot fully be owned by the Company. However, through continued outreach and process validation, this aligns with industry standards and market expectations for downstream companies’ due diligence.

 

Summarized below are the components of Company’s program as they relate to the five-step framework set forth in the OECD Guidance:

 

3.1 Establish strong company management systems

 

 

Adopted and publicly communicated a conflict minerals company policy which is posted on NETGEAR website at  http://www.netgear.com/images/conflict_minerals_policy_statement.pdf

 

As a member of the RBA (Responsible Business Alliance, previously known as the EICC or the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition), required that our suppliers and contract manufacturers acknowledge and implement the RBA’s Code of Conduct, which includes an obligation to conduct due diligence regarding conflict minerals.

 

Assembled internal conflict minerals team, with representation from NETGEAR’s Operations, Legal, Procurement, Finance and Internal Audit.

 

Established a system of controls through the use of Supplier Code of Conduct and transparency over NETGEAR’s conflict minerals supply chain by engaging Tier 1 suppliers and requesting relevant information through the use of a third-party supplier management vendor which utilized due diligence tools created by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”), including the CMRT.

 

Provided updates on our conflict minerals due diligence progress and status to certain members of NETGEAR’s senior management.

 

Educated and trained those personnel responsible to work on NETGEAR’s Conflict Minerals Program. This includes internal team members and suppliers.

 

3


 

 

 

Established a grievance mechanism to allow employees, suppliers, and others to report suspected non-compliance with legal requirement and/or suspected non-compliance with NETGEAR’s Code of Ethics and Supplier Code of Conduct. These policies are publicly available at http://www.netgear.com/about/corporate-social-responsibility/ethics/

 

Established an internal audit to review conflict minerals due diligence process against NETGEAR’s documented procedure and data accuracy in NETGEAR CMRT.

 

Identified business records relating to conflict minerals due diligence, including records of due diligence processes, findings and resulting decisions, that will be retained in accordance with our records retention policies.

 

3.2 Identify and manage risk in the supply chain

 

 

Identified relevant Tier 1 suppliers that supplied products containing 3TG.

 

Requested such suppliers to provide information regarding smelters or refiners in our supply chain by using the CMRT.

 

Reviewed supplier responses for completeness and accuracy.

 

Risks were identified by assessing the due diligence practices of smelters and refiners identified in the supply chain by upstream suppliers that listed mineral processing facilities on their CMRT declarations.

 

Compared information in supplier responses with the list of 3TG processing facilities that received a “conflict-free” designation, produced by the RMAP (Responsible Minerals Assurance Process).

 

Each facility that meets the RMI definition of a smelter or refiner of a 3TG is assessed according to red flag indicators defined in the OECD Guidance. To determine the level of risk that each smelter posed to the supply chain the Company assessed following criteria: geographic proximity to the Covered Countries, known mineral source country of origin, RMAP audit status, credible evidence of unethical or conflict sourcing, and Peer assessments conducted by credible third-party sources.

 

Contacted non-responsive suppliers, requesting their responses.

 

Provided suppliers with feedback on responses containing errors, inconsistencies or incomplete information and encouraged them to resubmit a valid response.

 

Evaluated suppliers on the strength of their internal conflict minerals programs, which assists in making key risk mitigation decisions as the program progresses. The criteria used to evaluate the strength of the program is based on certain questions in the CMRT related to the suppliers’ conflict minerals practices and policies.

 

3.3 Design and implement a strategy to respond to risk

 

 

Conducted regular conflict minerals team meetings to review, among other things, NETGEAR’s conflict minerals program, any potential or actual risks identified during due diligence, and the status of supplier responses.

 

Reported progress during the team meeting or quarterly basis to our Chief Operations Officer

 

Identified high risk smelters in NETGEAR’s supply chain by using smelter database from the RMI that includes information on smelter’s chain of custody of minerals. NETGEAR’s smelter risk calculation is based on the following criteria:

 

Geographic proximity to the DRC and covered countries;

 

Known mineral source country of origin;

 

RMAP audit status;

 

Credible evidence of unethical or conflict sourcing; and

 

Peer Assessments conducted by credible third-party sources.

 

Through the use of the Company’s third-party service provider, contacted non-RMAP facilities to encourage them to join the program and undergo an audit

 

Implemented an escalation plan for non-responsive suppliers and/or address incomplete or inaccurate supply chain information.

 

Requested that certain suppliers remove specific smelters or refiners from their supply chain that we deemed to be high-risk or invalid.

 

Engaged any suppliers whom we have reason to believe are supplying the Company with 3TGs from sources that may be considered a red-flag and encourage them to establish alternative sources of 3TGs.

 

Informed non-responsive suppliers that we will assess, and potentially withhold, future business with them if they do not provide their supply chain conflict minerals information using the CMRT.

 

Conducted Conflict Minerals Program due diligence process audit of NETGEAR’s ODM partners.

 

 

 

4


 

 

 

3.4 Audit of smelter/refiner’s due diligence practices

 

 

Relied on the RMAP, the London Bullion Market Association, and the Responsible Jewellery Council to coordinate third-party audits of smelters and refiners to validate the sourcing practices of such facilities in our supply chain.

 

Provided indirect financial support for such third-party audits through our continued membership in the RBA and RMI.

 

Participated in RBA & RMI work groups, including smelter engagement and outreach.

 

NETGEAR designated third-party also directly contacts smelters and refiners that are not currently enrolled in the RMAP to encourage their participation and gather information regarding each facilities’ sourcing practices on behalf of its compliance partners. NETGEAR is a signatory of this communication in accordance with the requirements of downstream companies detailed in the OECD Guidance.

 

3.5 Report annually on supply chain due diligence

 

 

NETGEAR has published the Form SD for the year ended December 31, 2020. This report is available on the Investor Relations pages of our website at http://investor.netgear.com/sec.cfm. Information found on or accessed through this website is not considered part of this report and is not incorporated by reference herein. NETGEAR has also publicly filed a Form SD and this report with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

 

This year the Company has also considered impacts from the European Union Conflict Minerals Rule when disclosing details with regards to due diligence efforts. The Company will continue to expand efforts both for transparency through the data collection process and risk evaluation, as well as the disclosure of efforts through the form of public report.

 

Section 4 – Due Diligence Results

 

NETGEAR does not have direct contractual relationships with smelters and refiners, therefore, we relied on our direct suppliers and the entire supply chain to gather and provide specific information on 3TGs used in NETGEAR products.

 

4.1 Supply Chain Outreach Results

 

Supply chain outreach is required to identify the upstream sources of origin of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold. Following the industry standard process, CMRTs are sent to and requested from Tier 1 suppliers, who are expected to follow this process until the smelter and refiner sources are identified. The following is the result of the outreach conducted by NETGEAR for the 2020 reporting year.

Upstream Data Transparency

 

All smelters and refiners listed by suppliers in completed CMRTs, which appear on the RMI-maintained smelters list, are attached in Appendix A. As is a common practice when requests are sent upstream in the supply chain, those who purchase materials from smelters may not be able to discern exactly which company’s product lines the materials may end up in. As a result, those providing the smelters and refiners have the practice to list all smelters and refiners they may purchase from within the reporting period. Therefore, the smelters or refiners (as sources) listed in Appendix A are likely to be more comprehensive than the list of smelters or refiners which actually processed the 3TGs contained in the Company’s products.

 

Suppliers that identified these specific smelters of concern on their CMRT were contacted in accordance with the OECD Guidance to inform them of the potential for risk, and to evaluate whether or not these smelters could be connected to NETGEAR’s products. The suppliers were asked to complete a user-defined or product-level CMRT specific to the materials, products or piece parts purchased by NETGEAR, rather than a company-level CMRT, to better identify the

connection to products that they supply to NETGEAR. Other suppliers were evaluated internally to determine if they were in fact still active suppliers. If not, they were removed from the scope of data collection.

Countries of Origin

 

Appendix B includes an aggregated list of countries of origin from which the reported facilities collectively source 3TGs, based on information provided through the CMRT data collection process, from direct smelter outreach and the RMAP. As mentioned in the above section, it is understood that many responses may provide more data than can be directly linked to products sold by NETGEAR, therefore, Appendix B may contain more countries than those that the Company’s products are being sourced from.

 

Section 5 – Risk Mitigation and Due Diligence Improvement Plan

 

5.1 Inherent limitation on due diligence measures

 

Because of our manufacturing business model, our due diligence measures can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance regarding the source and chain of custody of the necessary conflict minerals in the products we contract to manufacture. Given our place in the supply chain, we have no direct relationships with smelters, refiners, and therefore possess no independent means of determining the source and origin of conflict mineral ores processed by smelters or refiners. Our due diligence processes are based on the necessity of seeking data from our suppliers and component manufacturers and those suppliers seeking similar information within their supply chains to identify the original sources of the necessary conflict minerals. We also rely, to a large extent, on information collected and provided by independent third-party audit programs.

 

5.2 Steps to be taken to mitigate risk and improve Due Diligence Process

 

We intend to take the following steps to improve the due diligence conducted to further mitigate any risk that the necessary conflict minerals in our products could benefit armed groups in the DRC or adjoining countries:

 

 

Continue to work with the RMI and/or other relevant trade associations to define and improve best practices and build leverage over the supply chain in accordance with the OECD Guidance and/or other SEC recognized framework.

 

Engage with Tier 1 suppliers supplying us with 3TG from sources that support conflict in any covered country to establish an acceptable alternative source of 3TG.

 

Increase the emphasis on clean and validated smelter and refiner information from our supply chain as the list of conflict-free smelters and refiners grows and more smelters and refiners declare their intent to enroll in the program.

 

Emphasize the need for cooperation and support by our Tier 1 suppliers by implementing more direct Netgear-led escalations throughout the program.

 

Encourage our suppliers to have due diligence procedures in place for their supply chains to improve the content of the responses from such suppliers and follow up with suppliers who appear to have gaps in their internal processes for conflict minerals.

 

Engage with our suppliers more closely and provide suppliers with more information and training resources regarding responsible sourcing of 3TGs.

 

Engage Tier 1 suppliers to encourage smelters or refiners in supply chain, not yet identified by the RMAP or equivalent independent third-party audit, to undergo smelter audits and verify compliance.

 

6


 

 

 

Support our thirdparty service provider in their smelter due diligence activities by signing a letter to be sent to smelters who have yet to enroll in RMAP, encouraging them to do so.

 

 

 

 

5.3 Smelter & Refiner Risk Evaluation

Understanding the risks associated with the smelters and refiners potentially providing material into NETGEAR’s supply chain is an important part of the due diligence process. Through our third-party service provider Assent, comprehensive and ongoing analysis is conducted to assess sourcing risk. This information is used to:

Provide supplier feedback.

Determine the health of the Company’s overall program.

Conduct outreach to smelters, refiners and their respective associations.

Provide detailed analysis in this report.

 

The following risk categories are used for smelter evaluation and risk determination:

 

Did the mineral originate from or has been transported through a conflict-affected area as defined by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act (the DRC and its nine adjoining countries; Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia)?

 

 

Has the refiner’s due diligence practices been audited against a standard in conformance with the OECD Guidance?

 

Assent relies on the RMI audit standard, including cross-recognition of the London Bullion Market Association (“LBMA”) Good Delivery Program and the Responsible Jewelry Council Chain of Custody Certification, which are developed according to global standards, including the OECD Guidance.

 

 

Has evidence of any other red flag that is supported by credible sources been identified?
