Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

In 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued its final rule related to “conflict minerals” (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) originating in the Democratic Republic of Congo or the adjoining countries. Coherent, Inc., as publicly traded parent company of Coherent-ROFIN, is committed to compliance with this rule, which requires an annual report to the SEC on the use of conflict minerals.
