Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

After examining its product lines, Sevcon, Inc. determined that all products it manufactured or contracted to manufacture during calendar year 2013 contained conflict minerals (as defined in Item 1.01 of Form SD) and that these conflict minerals were necessary to the functionality or production of those products. As a result, Sevcon conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI) of all contract manufacturers and component suppliers for all products Sevcon sold in 2013 to determine whether the conflict minerals contained in those products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or any adjoining country (the “Covered Countries”) or originated from recycled or scrap sources.
Our RCOI consisted of the following:

1. Listing all products and the component parts and materials contained in the products, or used during the production of the products.
2. Reviewing the relevant specifications to confirm if the parts contained conflict minerals, or using engineering knowledge, would be expected to use conflict minerals during production.
3. Excluding parts not containing conflict minerals or not requiring conflict minerals in their production.
4. Excluding parts which were manufactured before 2013 since any conflict minerals contained in these products was smelted before 2013.
5. Contacting the manufacturers/suppliers of the remaining parts and materials to confirm whether conflict minerals were present in such parts or materials.
6. Requesting that manufacturers/suppliers confirm the source smelters of conflict minerals contained in the parts and materials.
7. Comparing the source smelters reported by manufacturers/suppliers with the EICC GeSI Conflict-Free Smelters Lists.
8. Below is a summary of the countries of origin identified as a result of the RCOI (conflict minerals in our products may also have come from other countries) -

Upon completion of this first RCOI, we were not able to determine that none of the conflict minerals contained in our products originated in the Covered Countries.

For this reason, Sevcon has filed a Conflict Minerals Report as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD. A copy of the Conflict Minerals Report is available to the public on Sevcon’s website at: www.sevcon.com/about-sevcon/environmental
