SECTION 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

This Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD by Owens & Minor, Inc. is for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2019. Unless the context otherwise indicates, “Owens & Minor,” “Company,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Owens & Minor, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.

During 2019, certain of our operations manufactured, or contracted to manufacture, products for which 3TGs, as defined below, are necessary to their functionality or production (“Covered Products”). Conflict minerals are defined in Section 13(p) as (A) cassiterite, columbite-tantalite (coltan), gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum and tungsten (together with gold collectively referred to as “3TGs”), or (B) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”) or any adjoining country that shares an internationally recognized border with the DRC. Accordingly, we have conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) that was designed to determine whether any of the 3TGs in our Covered Products originated in the DRC or an adjoining country (Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda or Zambia), or were from recycled or scrap sources.

A summary of our RCOI, as well as the steps taken to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of any 3TGs in our Covered Products, is included in our Conflict Minerals Report (“Report”), which is filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD. In addition, our Report and Form SD is publicly available on the Investor page of our Company website at: www.owens-minor.com.
