Section 1Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
Allison Transmission Holdings, Inc. (the Company) performed a reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI), in which it surveyed 100% of its direct suppliers regarding whether its necessary columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold and wolframite, including their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin and tungsten (conflict minerals) originated from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (the Covered Countries). Most of the responses the Company received indicated that the conflict minerals in the suppliers components and materials either did not originate from a Covered Country, were not necessary to the functionality of the components and materials or the source country was undeterminable. Further information regarding the Companys RCOI is included in the Companys Conflict Minerals Report, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.01.
During its RCOI, the Company was not able to determine whether its necessary conflict minerals may have been originated from the Covered Countries and may not have come from recycled or scrap sources. As such, the Company proceeded to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals. The Conflict Minerals Report includes a discussion of the due diligence procedures performed, the ultimate determination of origin and conflict status reached and the disclosures required by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Company has disclosed the information above, along with a copy of its Conflict Minerals Report, on its website at www.allisontransmission.com.
Item 1.02 Exhibit
The Companys Conflict Minerals Report is filed herewith as Exhibit 1.01.
