Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Manitex International, Inc.
(the Company) undertook a reasonable country of origin inquiry with respect to the conflict minerals used in the production of the Companys products and has determined in good faith that for the year ended December 31, 2018:
The Company has manufactured or contracted to manufacture products as to which tin, tungsten, tantalum and/or
gold (herein referred to as 3TGs, for conflict minerals
see footnote) are necessary to the functionality or production of such products.
Based on a reasonable country of origin inquiry and additional due diligence measures, the Company
has reason to believe that a portion of its necessary 3TGs originated or may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively, sometimes referred to as the Covered Countries) and has reason to
believe that those necessary 3TGs may not be from recycled or scrap sources.
The Companys reasonable country of origin inquiry
(RCOI) employed a combination of measures to determine whether the necessary 3TGs in the Companys products originated from the Covered Countries. The Companys primary means of determining country of origin of necessary 3TGs was by
conducting a supply chain survey with direct suppliers using the RBA-GeSI
(Responsible Business Alliance Global
conflict minerals reporting template
(CMRT), version 5.11 or higher.
