Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure


Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report


This filing is being made by Akoustis Technologies, Inc. (“Akoustis” or the “Company”) for the calendar year January 1 to December 31, 2018 (the “Reporting Period”) in accordance with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Form SD (collectively, the “Conflict Minerals Rule”). Consistent with the Conflict Minerals Rule, as used herein, “Conflict Minerals” are tin (cassiterite), tungsten (wolframite), tantalum (columbite-tantalite or coltan) and gold.


Akoustis determined that Conflict Minerals are used in certain materials contained in the radio frequency filter products, amplifiers and other products that the Company manufactures for its customers or for third parties under its foundry services business. These Conflict Minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of these products.


As required by the Conflict Minerals Rule, Akoustis has conducted in good faith a “reasonable country of origin inquiry” (“RCOI”) to determine whether any of the Conflict Minerals in its products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or its adjoining countries (the “Covered Countries”), or are from recycled or scrap sources. In conducting the RCOI, Akoustis identified the vendors of any such Conflict Minerals and requested that they complete the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”), an initiative of the Responsible Business Alliance and Global e-Sustainability Initiative, concerning the absence or possible presence of Conflict Minerals in the products they supplied to Akoustis.


All of the smelters identified by the vendors in the CMRT responses are listed by RMI as compliant with the RMI Responsible Minerals Assurance Process assessment protocols. Accordingly, the Company has concluded that it has no reason to believe that, during the Reporting Period, Conflict Minerals necessary for the functionality or production of the Company’s products may have originated in the Covered Countries. As a result, in accordance with the Conflict Minerals Rule, the Company has concluded that a Conflict Minerals Report as defined thereunder is not required for the Reporting Period.


This information is publicly available on the Company’s website at www.akoustis.com.
