2. Description of the Company's Products Covered by this Report

This Report relates to products: (i) for which 3TG are necessary to the functionality or production of that product; (ii) that were manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by the Company; and (iii) for which the manufacture was completed during calendar year 2016. The Company determined that component products at four (4) of its subsidiaries contain or may contain 3TG which are necessary to the functionality or production of their products. The four subsidiaries and the applicable 3TG are Advanced Circuits (gold and tin), Arnold Magnetics (gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten), Sterno Products (tin and gold) and Liberty (gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten).

The Company acquired 5.11 during the year ended December 31, 2016. As permitted by the instructions to the Form SD, the Company has not included 5.11 in our reporting on Form SD and the Conflict Mineral report for the year-ended December 31, 2016 as we completed the acquisition during the latter half of the year.


3. Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry

The Company conducted an analysis of its subsidiaries’ products and found that small quantities of necessary 3TG are contained in some of its subsidiaries’ products. Therefore, for the reporting period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016, the Company conducted a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) which was reasonably designed to determine whether any of the necessary 3TG contained in its subsidiaries’ products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively, the "Covered Countries") or came from recycled or scrap sources. “Necessary 3TG” are 3TG that are necessary to the functionality or production of products that the Company’s subsidiaries manufacture or that the Company’s subsidiaries contract with others to manufacture for us.

The Company used the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) developed by the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative to request information from its subsidiaries’ suppliers about their supply chain and to gather information about the country of origin of its necessary 3TG. The Company identified approximately 280 direct suppliers that potentially supplied the Company necessary 3TG and requested each of them to complete a CMRT. The Company received responses (by either a letter or completed CMRT) from approximately 90% of these suppliers and reviewed the responses for completeness and accuracy. When the Company determined that its suppliers’ CMRT responses contained information the Company believed to be incomplete or inaccurate, the Company followed up with those suppliers to seek additional information or clarification about those responses.

Based on the Company’s supplier responses, the Company does not have sufficient information to determine whether the products it manufactured or contracted for manufacture during the reporting period contain necessary 3TG that originated, or may have originated, in the Covered Countries and are not or may not be from recycled or scrap sources. Accordingly, and out of an abundance of caution, the Company performed due diligence in an effort to determine the source and chain of custody of these necessary 3TG.

4. Due Diligence

Due Diligence Design

With respect to the period covered, the design of the due diligence process conforms in all material respects with the internationally recognized due diligence framework set forth in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High Risk Areas, Third Edition, 2016, as further set out in the specific guidance for downstream companies contained in the Supplement on Tin, Tantalum, and Tungsten and the Supplement for Gold (hereinafter, collectively, the “OECD Guidance”).






Due Diligence Measures Performed

The Company undertook due diligence at each of its subsidiaries that have component products that contain or may contain necessary 3TG to determine the source and chain of custody of the necessary 3TG contained in the products manufactured by or contracted for manufacture by the Company’s subsidiaries. Summarized below are the components of the 3TG due diligence program the Company undertook as they relate to the five-step framework set forth in the OECD Guidance:

1. OECD Step #1: Establish and maintain strong company management systems

Our operations are reported in eight business segments, therefore, we established a single point of contact to assist in implementing a 3TG program. Each segment that manufactures or distributes products that contain necessary 3TG had its own designated specific personnel to coordinate the 3TG diligence, oversee the implementation and execution of a program and coordinate directly with its affected suppliers, if applicable. The affected segments used the CMRT developed by the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative as a mechanism to request that suppliers provide information about the source and chain of custody of the necessary 3TG contained in products supplied to each of the affected segments. The Company sought source and chain of custody information from its applicable suppliers earlier in the process than it did in the previous year. For suppliers that did not respond to the Company's source and chain of custody inquiry (or provided limited response) for calendar year 2015, the Company submitted that supplier name to the executive management of the applicable subsidiary for review. The Company maintains a conflict minerals policy regarding the sourcing of conflict minerals, which is publicly available on the Company’s website at: http://ir.compassequity.com/corporate-governance.cfm. The content of any website referred to in this Report is not incorporated by reference in this Report.

2. OECD Step #2: Identifying and assessing risk in the supply chain

To identify risks related to necessary 3TG in its products, the Company took the following actions:
worked with suppliers to obtain more complete information;
followed up with suppliers that did not respond or provided inconsistent or incomplete responses;
sought information regarding the smelters or refiners or smelters that processed the conflict minerals in the suppliers’ products; and
analyzed the supplier’s responses against the Company's conflict minerals policy and against the list of smelters and refiners on the CFSI website to determine whether the smelters received a "compliant" or "active" designations from the Conflict Free Smelter Program ("CFSP").

3. OECD Step #3: Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks

Results of the Company’s supplier responses were reported to the senior management of the Company, specifically our Chief Financial Officer . The Company continued a risk management plan of attempting to disengage with a supplier where the Company deems risk mitigation unfeasible or unacceptable, and where, in the Company’s opinion, such disengagement would not likely harm the supply chain for a particular product.

4. OECD Step #4: Carry out an independent third party audit of smelter's/ refiner’s due diligence practices

As an owner of downstream companies, the Company relies on audits by independent third parties, including audits of smelters and refiners reported by the CFSP. The Company also relies on the certification processes of the London Bullion Market Association, The Responsible Jewellery Council, and the Tungsten Industry - Conflict Minerals Council.

5. OECD Step #5: Report annually on supply chain due diligence

The Company reports on our conflict minerals due diligence annually by making our Form SD and this Report publicly available on our Company website at: http://ir.compassequity.com/sec.cfm and filing the Form SD (with this Report) with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").


5. Results of Review
As an owner of downstream companies, the Company can only provide reasonable, not absolute, assurance regarding the source and chain of custody of the 3TG contained in its subsidiaries’ products. The Company relies on the information collected and provided by its subsidiaries’ direct suppliers and publicly available information regarding independent third party audit programs.





Facilities Used to Process the Necessary 3TG
The Company requested smelter information from the suppliers of each of its subsidiaries that were determined to have component products that contain or may contain 3TG which are necessary to the functionality or production of their products. Based on the responses from our direct suppliers, five (5) suppliers identified only one (1) tin smelter, resulting in a total of two (2) tin smelters being identified. Based on the responses from the five (5) suppliers with only one smelter disclosed for tin, we determined that the following smelters proceesed the tin that is contained in certain of our products.
Metal
Official Smelter Name
CESI Smelter ID
Smelter Country
 
 
 
 
Tin
Yunnan Tin Company Limited
CID002180
China
Tin
China Tin Group Co., Ltd.
CID001070
China

In the other responses received from our direct suppliers, each supplier named more than one (1) smelter or refiner in their response for each metal. This lack of detail from the rest of our suppliers prevented the Company from being able to determine whether a particular smelter or refiner named in their responses processed the necessary 3TG in the Company's products. Accordingly, the Company is unable to disclose any other facilities used to produce the necessary 3TG in its products. However, Table 1 attached to this Report lists the smelters and refiners provided to the Company by its other direct suppliers that may have processed necessary 3TG in its subsidiaries’ product lines.
Country of Origin
Based on the responses provided by the Company’s suppliers described directly above, the responses did not provide sufficiently detailed information for us to identify the country of origin of the necessary 3TG in the Company’s products. Accordingly, the Company is unable to disclose the country of origin of the necessary 3TG in its products.

Efforts to determine mine or location
The Company has determined that the most reasonable effort it can make to determine the mines or locations of origin of its necessary 3TG to the greatest possible specificity is to seek information from its direct suppliers about the smelters and refiners and the countries of origin of the necessary 3TG in its products and urge that its suppliers do the same with their direct suppliers. The Company must rely on its direct and indirect suppliers to provide the information about the mine or location of origin of the necessary 3TG in its products. As a result of the lack of information obtained from the Company’s subsidiaries’ suppliers, the Company was unable to determine the mine or location of the necessary conflict minerals in its subsidiaries’ product lines.


6. Risk Mitigation / Steps to Improve Due Diligence Measures
The Company currently intends to take steps to improve its due diligence and mitigate the risk that the Company’s necessary 3TG benefit or finance armed groups, including:

Evaluating current direct suppliers based on their responsiveness to the 2016 calendar year's data collection effort.  We expect to submit the names of those suppliers who provide products with risk of possible 3TG content that required responses and whose responses were limited or non-existent for calendar year 2016 to the executive management of the applicable subsidiary for review.
Reaching out to suppliers earlier in the process and asking them to complete the CMRT.
Improving, to the extent possible, the percentage of supplier provided responses to the request to complete the CMRT.


7. Independent Private Sector Audit

Based on the existing guidance from the SEC, this report has not been audited, nor is an Independent Private Sector Audit required for this Report.


8. Forward-Looking Statements
This Report may contain certain forward-looking statements, including those made under the “Risk Mitigation / Steps to Improve Due Diligence Measures” section. Words such as “believes,” “expects,” “projects,” and “future” or similar expressions, are intended





to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to the inherent uncertainties in predicting future results and conditions. These statements are subject to a variety of uncertainties, unknown risks and other factors concerning the Company’s operations and business environment, which are difficult to predict and are beyond the control of the Company. Factors that could adversely affect our future performance include (1) those described under the heading “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, (2) the responsible sourcing of 3TG in our supply chain by our direct and indirect suppliers and (3) the effectiveness of traceability systems used by our direct and indirect suppliers to determine the source and chain of custody of 3TG contained in our supply chain. Except as required by law, CODI undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
