Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

 

Item 1.01: Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

SK Telecom Co., Ltd. is Korea’s leading wireless telecommunications services provider and has continued to pioneer the commercial development and implementation of state-of-the-art wireless and fixed-line technologies and services as well as develop its next-generation growth businesses in Internet of Things (“IoT”) solutions, media and e-commerce and other innovative products offered through its platform services, including artificial intelligence solutions. All references to “we,” “us,” or “our” shall mean SK Telecom Co., Ltd. and unless the context otherwise requires, its consolidated subsidiaries.

Our operations are reported in four segments: cellular services, fixed-line telecommunication services, e-commerce services and other businesses. In our cellular services segment, we earn revenue principally from our wireless voice and data transmission services through monthly plan-based fees, usage charges for outgoing voice calls, usage charges for wireless data services and value-added service fees paid by our wireless subscribers as well as interconnection fees paid to us by other telecommunications operators for use of our wireless network by their customers and subscribers. In our fixed-line telecommunication services segment, we earn revenue principally from our fixed-line telephone services and broadband Internet services and advanced media platform services (including Internet protocol TV) through monthly plan-based fees and usage charges as well as interconnection fees paid to us by other telecommunications operators for use of our fixed-line network by their customers and subscribers. In our e-commerce services segment, we derive revenue from our consolidated subsidiary SK Planet Co., Ltd., which earns revenue principally through third-party seller fees earned (including commissions) for transactions in which it acts as a selling agent to the “mini malls” on 11st, its online open marketplace platform, as well as advertising revenue from 11st and its other commerce solutions. In our other businesses segment, we earn revenue principally from our hardware businesses through sales of projection display devices and high-end audio devices, our security business operated by our subsidiary, NSOK Co., Ltd., advertising revenue from our “Nate” portal service operated by our subsidiary, SK Communications Co., Ltd., and sales commissions through our mobile application marketplaces.

A company is required to file this Report pursuant to Rule 13p-1 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, if it manufactures, or contracts to manufacture, products for which certain specified minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of the products, regardless of the geographic origin of the minerals and whether or not they fund armed conflict. These minerals are referred to as “conflict minerals” (also referred to as “3TG minerals” in this Report) and consist of columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite and wolframite (and their derivatives tantalum, tin, and tungsten), and gold.

We manufacture, or contract to manufacture, certain products for which 3TG minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. Accordingly, we conducted in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) regarding 3TG minerals contained in our products manufactured in calendar year 2017. We believe our RCOI was reasonably designed to determine whether any 3TG minerals contained in those products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country (together, the “Covered Countries”), or are from recycled or scrap sources.

We first conducted a detailed review of our purchases of materials necessary to the functionality or production of our products that we manufactured in 2017 to determine whether we purchase any 3TG minerals. We determined that certain of our products (collectively, the “covered products”) contain some 3TG minerals (namely, tantalum, tin and gold) that are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. We do not directly purchase 3TG minerals, nor do we have any direct relationship with any mines or smelters that process these minerals. In conducting our RCOI, we conducted a supply-chain survey with our subsidiaries and suppliers using the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition and Global e-Sustainability (“EICC-GeSI”) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. We required our direct suppliers of materials for covered products to complete certifications concerning their manufacturing practices and the materials they supply to us. All of our suppliers of materials for covered products manufactured in 2017 certified that the 3TG minerals contained in materials supplied to us were not sourced from Covered Countries.

As a result of our RCOI, we determined that we have no reason to believe that the 3TG minerals contained in our products originated from the Covered Countries or were not from recycled or scrap sources.
