Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
Conflict Minerals Disclosure
For the reporting period from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020, MaxLinear, Inc. determined that certain “conflict minerals,” as defined in Section 1, Item 1.01(d)(3) of Form SD, are necessary to the functionality or production of the semiconductors that we contract to manufacture through foundries in Asia. Accordingly, we conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry to determine whether during 2020 our products contained conflict minerals that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or certain adjoining countries, which we refer to collectively as the “covered countries.” We then conducted due diligence designed to conform to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas in order to determine whether any of the conflict minerals used in our products during 2020 originated from any of the covered countries and whether these conflict minerals benefited, directly or indirectly, armed groups in any of the covered countries.
In accordance with Rule 13p-1 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and this Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD, we have filed a Conflict Minerals Report, which is attached as Exhibit 1.01 hereto. A copy of this Form SD and the Conflict Minerals Report are publicly available at https://investors.maxlinear.com/sec-filings.
Item 1.02 Exhibit
In accordance with Rule 13p-1, and this Form SD, we have filed our Conflict Minerals Report, which is attached as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD.
