Conflict Minerals Report

For the Year Ended December 31, 2018

This Conflict Minerals Report of Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (the “Company”) for the year ended December 31, 2018 is presented pursuant to Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Rule”). The Rule imposes certain reporting obligations when a registrant manufactures or contracts to manufacture products for which Conflict Minerals (as defined below) are necessary to the functionality or production of such products. Conflict Minerals are defined as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite (coltan), gold, wolframite, or their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum, and tungsten.

The Company and Its Products

Unless the context otherwise requires, the “Company,” “EFI,” “we,” “our, and “us” refer to Electronics For Imaging, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.

Overview

EFI is a world leader in customer-centric digital printing innovation focusing on the transformation of the printing, packaging, ceramic tile decoration, and textile industries from the use of traditional analog based printing to digital on demand printing. Our corporate headquarters are located at 6750 Dumbarton Circle, Fremont, California 94555.

We offer a wide-range of products and services for industrial digital printing. Our products and services are grouped in the following categories: Industrial Inkjet, Productivity Software, and Fiery.

Industrial Inkjet

Our Industrial Inkjet products address the high-growth industrial digital inkjet markets where significant conversion of production from analog to digital inkjet printing is occurring. The Industrial Inkjet operating segment consists of our VUTEk super-wide and wide format display graphics, Nozomi corrugated packaging and display, Reggiani textile, and Cretaprint ceramic tile decoration and building material industrial digital inkjet printers; digital ultra-violet (“UV”) curable, light emitting diode (“LED”) curable, ceramic, water-based, thermoforming, and specialty inks, as well as a variety of textile inks including dye sublimation, pigmented, reactive dye, acid dye, pure disperse dye, water-based dispersed printing ink, supplies and coatings; digital inkjet printer parts; and professional services. Printing surfaces include paper, vinyl, corrugated, textile, glass, plastic, aluminum composite, ceramic tile, wood, and many other flexible and rigid substrates.


Productivity Software

To provide our customers with solutions to manage and streamline their printing and packaging operations, we have developed technology that enhances printing workflow and makes printing and packaging operations more powerful, productive, cost-effective, and easier to manage. Most of our software solutions have been developed with the express goal of automating print processes and streamlining workflow via open, integrated, and inter-operable products, services, and solutions. The Productivity Software operating segment consists of a complete set of productivity software suites that enable efficient and automated end-to-end business and production workflows for the print and packaging industries. These productivity software suites also provide tools to enable revenue growth, efficient scheduling, and optimization of processes, equipment, and personnel. Customers are provided the financial and technical flexibility to deploy locally within their business or to be hosted in the cloud.

Fiery

Fiery products include (i) stand-alone Digital Front Ends (“DFEs”), which are connected to digital printers, copiers, and other peripheral devices, (ii) embedded DFEs and design-licensed solutions used in digital copiers and multi-functional devices,

(iii) optional software integrated into our DFE solutions such as Fiery Central and Graphics Arts Package, and Color Profiler (iv) Fiery Self Serve, our self-service and payment solution, and (v) stand-alone software-based solutions such as our proofing, textile and scanning solutions. Our Fiery segment consists of Fiery and the FreeFlow Print Server business. DFEs transform digital copiers and printers into high performance networked printing devices for the office, commercial, and industrial printing markets. We have direct relationships with several leading printer manufacturers with whom we work closely to design, develop, and integrate Fiery DFE and software technology to maximize the capability of each print engine. The printer manufacturers act as distributors and sell Fiery products to end customers through reseller channels. End customer and reseller channel preference for the Fiery DFE and software solutions drives demand for Fiery products through the printer manufacturers.

We have determined that gold, tantalum and tin are necessary to the functionality or production of some of our manufactured products in our Industrial Inkjet, Productivity Software and Fiery portfolios.

We have adopted a policy relating to Conflict Minerals, incorporating the standards 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 and related supplements for gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (“OECD Framework”). The policy states that EFI will not knowingly purchase raw materials, subassemblies, or supplies that are known to contain Conflict Minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in any of the Covered Countries (as defined below). Our policy further states that we will exercise due diligence with relevant suppliers consistent with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas and encourage our suppliers to do likewise with their suppliers.

Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry and Due Diligence Process

In accordance with the Rule, the Company undertook a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) regarding the Conflict Minerals in its manufactured products. This RCOI was reasonably designed to determine whether any of the Conflict Minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia, or Angola (collectively, the “Covered Countries”), and whether any of the Conflict Minerals may be from recycled or scrap sources (as defined by paragraph (d)(6) of Item 1.01 of Form SD). The Company also exercised due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the Conflict Minerals.

EFI’s supply chain with respect to our products is complex. There are many third parties in the supply chain between the ultimate manufacture of our products and the original sources of Conflict Minerals because EFI does not purchase Conflict Minerals directly from mines, smelters or refiners. We rely on our direct suppliers to provide information on the origin of the Conflict Minerals contained in components and materials supplied to us including sources of Conflict Minerals that are supplied to them from lower tier suppliers.

We designed our due diligence measures to be in conformity, in all material respects, with the framework in the OECD Framework.

Our RCOI and due diligence efforts included conducting a supply-chain survey with direct suppliers using the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) to identify the smelters and refiners that contribute Conflict Minerals to our suppliers and follow up contact with those that did not respond to our initial inquiries and those that provided incomplete responses. We also performed a review of the smelter information provided by those suppliers that included such information in the collected surveys, determining whether the identified smelters are “known” smelters or have been identified as “conflict free” by the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (“RMAP”).

For the year ended December 31, 2018, we contacted 81 Tier 1 suppliers, which accounted for approximately 95% of our 2018 production supply spend on products that could contain gold, tin, tantalum or tungsten. We conducted a survey of these suppliers to determine whether gold, tin, tantalum or tungsten in components contained in our products may have originated in the Covered Countries or if they were from recycled or scrap sources. We also issued subsequent reminders for supplier survey non-responses. As a result of our efforts, we received responses from 81% of the suppliers surveyed and the majority of supplier survey responses listed the smelters/refiners used in their supply chain.

The responses contained varying degrees of information regarding the names and locations of smelters/refiners, which process necessary Conflict Minerals used in our suppliers’ products, which are ultimately incorporated into our products. We reviewed the responses and made further inquiries of our suppliers as necessary.

Many of the responses received provided smelter or refinery information at a company or divisional level or were unable to specify the smelters or refiners used for products supplied to EFI. As a result, EFI is unable to determine whether any of the Conflict Minerals reported by our suppliers were contained in components or parts supplied to us or to validate that any of these smelters or refineries are actually in EFI’s supply chain. Through our participation in the RMI, we continue to support independent third-party audits through the RMI or other third-party certification schemes.

Our due diligence process includes participation in RMI and following the OECD Framework. We requested that our suppliers complete the CMRT survey in order to obtain information about Conflict Minerals smelters or refiners in our supply chain. We have determined that these actions represent the most reasonable effort we can make to determine the mines or locations of origin of the Conflict Minerals in our supply chain.

Although the majority of survey responses provided smelter and refiner data, some responses did not completely list all the smelters or refiners used in their supply chain. We analyzed and compared the Conflict Minerals smelter and refiner data we received against information obtained from the RMI database. For the calendar year 2018, our due diligence identified 330 smelters and refiners as potential sources of Conflict Minerals that were reported to be in our supply chain.

In order to provide compliance status, we completed further analysis of the 330 smelters and refiners, of which 237 have been certified as RMAP conformant by the RMI approved program or are known to be legitimate smelters that the RMI outreach program categorizes as active in the process of obtaining an audit, or communicating with RMI but have yet to be certified. The remaining 93 are smelters or refiners that have been allocated a Smelter Identification CID number but are not currently active in the RMI program. For 2018, our due diligence identified the information set forth in the following table:

 

Metal

   Number of
        Refiners/Smelters        
  

Number of RMAP Conformant,

Communicating or Active Refiners/Smelters

     
Gold    159    117
     
Tantalum    40    40
     
Tin    88    78
     
Tungsten    43    2
     
Total        330    237

RMAP compliance results are as of May 20, 2019. The data above was obtained from the non-public (member only access) RMI Data Exchange Forum as of May 20, 2019.

Based on the information provided by our suppliers, we believe that the facilities that may have been used to process the minerals in our products include the smelters listed in Appendix I. Based on our due diligence efforts, we do not have sufficient information to conclusively determine the countries of origin of the Conflict Minerals in our products or whether the minerals in our products are from recycled or scrap sources. However, based on the information provided by our suppliers, as well as from the RMI and other sources, we believe that the countries of origin of the Conflict Minerals contained in our products may include the countries listed in Appendix II below as well as recycled and scrap sources.

The Company’s efforts to determine the mine(s) or location of origin with the greatest possible specificity included the use of the due diligence measures described above.

Risk Mitigation/Future Due Diligence Measures

During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company undertook the following steps to improve the due diligence conducted to further mitigate the risk that the necessary Conflict Minerals in our products could benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries, including:

 

   

Maintained a cross-functional team to review and evaluate data gathering in connection with determining the source of the necessary Conflict Minerals in our products and elevated non-responsive issues as necessary;

   

Provided a telephone hot-line and e-mail address for supplier communication relating to Conflict Minerals; and

   

Renewed our membership in RMI in order to enhance our due diligence efforts.

   

Encouraged our direct suppliers to purchase materials from smelters that are listed on the RMAP Conformant Smelter Lists and have been certified as conflict-free by an independent auditor through the RMAP;

   

Encouraged our suppliers to encourage smelters in their supply chain to undergo the audit process to be certified as conflict-free through an industry program, such as the RMAP; and

   

Continued implementing down-stream reporting obligations in our future contracts with suppliers.
