Conflict Minerals Report
 
For the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2018
 
Introduction and Background

This Conflict Minerals Report (the “Report”) of EchoStar Corporation (“EchoStar”) and Hughes Satellite Systems Corporation (“Hughes” and, together with EchoStar and the respective subsidiaries of EchoStar and Hughes through December 31, 2018, the “Company,” “we,” “our” and/or “us”) has been prepared pursuant to Rule 13p-1 (the “Rule”) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, for the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2018. The Rule requires disclosure of certain information when a company manufactures or contracts to manufacture products and the minerals specified in the Rule are necessary to the functionality or production of those products.  The specified minerals are gold, columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite and wolframite, including their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin and tungsten (collectively, the “Conflict Minerals”) that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) and certain adjoining countries (collectively with the DRC, the “Covered Countries”).

Pursuant to the Rule, the Company has concluded, in good faith, that during the reporting period of January 1 to December 31, 2018:

the Company manufactured, or contracted to manufacture, products whose manufacture was completed in calendar year 2018 as to which Conflict Minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of those products (our “Covered Products”); and
based on our good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) regarding the Conflict Minerals in our Covered Products, the Company had reason to believe that certain of the Conflict Minerals necessary to the functionality or production of our Covered Products may have originated in one or more of the Covered Countries and that such Conflict Minerals may not be from recycled or scrap sources. 

Therefore, the Company performed due diligence on the source and chain of custody of such Conflict Minerals in our Covered Products. The Company is filing this Report with our Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD (the “Form SD”) to comply with the requirements of the Rule. This Report has not been subject to an independent private sector audit.

PART I. COMPANY OVERVIEW AND DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCTS COVERED BY THIS REPORT
 
Description of Products

We are a global provider of broadband satellite technologies, broadband internet services for home and small office customers, satellite operations and satellite services. We also deliver innovative network technologies, managed services and various communications solutions for aeronautical, enterprise and government customers. This Report relates to our Covered Products under our Hughes business segment for the entire reporting period, which consisted of the following:
 
Broadband Satellite Systems — The Company’s broadband and satellite products included broadband systems and terminals, mobile satellite systems, handheld devices and IP data terminals for mobile satellite operators, all of which support the delivery of a wide range of bandwidth-intensive services as well as privately-branded service offerings, including high-speed internet/intranet access, video conferencing, distance learning, telemedicine, newsgathering, fleet operations and broadband on planes, trains and maritime.

Certain of our Covered Products were designed, developed, engineered, manufactured, assembled and/or distributed by us; however, we also outsourced a significant portion of these functions to third parties.  We worked with third-party vendors for the development and manufacture of components that are integrated into our Covered Products.  We developed dual sourcing capabilities for critical parts when practical and we evaluated outsourced subcontract vendors on a periodic basis.






 
PART II. DESIGN OF OUR DUE DILIGENCE MEASURES

 
We designed our due diligence measures based on the five-step framework laid out by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in its OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas: Third Edition (2016), including the related supplements on gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (collectively, the “OECD Guidance”).  Summarized below are the components of our due diligence measures as they relate to the five-step framework from the OECD Guidance.
 
Establish Strong Company Management Systems for Conflict Minerals Supply Chain Due Diligence
 
Designate Internal Corporate Team

The Company has an internal team, composed of senior members of the Company’s supply chain and procurement operations and the legal department, which evaluates the Company’s applicable supply chain processes and sourcing procedures and designs and supports the Company’s due diligence efforts.  The team meets periodically to develop and refine a due diligence process that:

is consistent with the OECD Guidance,
conforms to the requirements of the Rule, and
is appropriate given the structure and operations of the Company’s supply chain departments. 

The Company’s internal audit department monitors the diligence process, provides feedback and reviews the due diligence results.

Each existing and new supplier and manufacturer (collectively referred to as “suppliers”) is assigned to a specific employee within the supply chain department who reports to a senior supply chain manager.  A senior supply chain manager disseminates all necessary information and documentation to each employee in the supply chain department responsible for interfacing directly with suppliers.

Commit to a Supply Chain Policy for Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas

The Company maintains a policy relating to Conflict Minerals (the “Policy”) stating that suppliers shall:
 
have a policy to reasonably assure that the Conflict Minerals in the products they manufacture for or supply to the Company do not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups that are perpetrators of serious human rights abuses in the Covered Countries;
exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of these minerals and make their due diligence measures available to the Company upon the Company’s request; and
be prepared to assist the Company in meeting the Conflict Minerals reporting requirements under the Rule, as well as other national or international mineral reporting regimes that may arise in the future.

The Policy is incorporated into the Company’s supplier code of conduct, which is available to our suppliers on our websites.  All suppliers of the Company during the reporting period were obligated to comply with the supplier code of conduct.

Establish a System of Controls and Transparency over the Conflict Minerals Supply Chain

The Company employs a system of controls to promote transparency over our Conflict Minerals supply chain by utilizing the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“Conflict Minerals Reporting Template”), which is a supply chain survey designed to facilitate the transfer of information through the supply chain to identify the smelters and refiners that process the necessary Conflict Minerals in our Covered Products. The Conflict Minerals Reporting Template was developed by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (“RMI”), a Responsible Business Alliance and Global e-Sustainability Initiative. The Company maintains an automated database of the completed Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates submitted to the Company by our suppliers (the “Conflict Minerals Response Database”), which helps us process and

2



analyze the information provided by our suppliers. Once in the Conflict Minerals Response Database, all completed Conflict Mineral Reporting Templates received from suppliers are stored electronically in a central location accessible to authorized employees involved in the due diligence process and are retained in accordance with the Company’s document retention guidelines.

Since 2015, the Company has been a member of RMI, an organization committed to the responsible sourcing of Conflict Minerals that currently has over 350 participating companies and associations from around the world. As a member, the Company has access to a variety of tools and resources to better assess Conflict Minerals in our supply chain, including the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (“RMAP”), an audit program designed to validate smelters’ and refiners’ sourcing practices.

Strengthen the Company’s Engagement with Suppliers

We inform our suppliers of our Policy, our due diligence consistent with OECD Guidance and our compliance with the Rule. Moreover, the Company’s purchase order and contract terms and conditions require that suppliers expressly support the supply chain due diligence process employed by the Company.

Establish a Company-Level Grievance Mechanism

The Company maintains an open reporting system through which employees and third parties may report concerns about potential or actual violations of the Policy. Concerns may be reported anonymously or for attribution through several channels, including through an employee’s immediate manager or the Company’s legal department.
     
Identify and Assess the Risks in the Company’s Supply Chain
 
The Company does not purchase Conflict Minerals directly from mines, smelters or refiners and does not have a direct relationship with any mines, smelters or refiners.  The Company’s supply chain with respect to our Covered Products is complex, and there are many third parties in the supply chain between the ultimate manufacturer of our Covered Products and the original sources of the Conflict Minerals.  As a result, we designed our due diligence to conform to the requirements of the Rule and the OECD Guidance as applicable for downstream companies. Because the Company believes that the smelters and refiners of the Conflict Minerals are best situated to identify the sources of Conflict Minerals, the Company relies on communications with suppliers to identify the applicable smelters and refiners of Conflict Minerals in the Company’s supply chain. In particular, the Company performs the following measures to identify Conflict Minerals in our Covered Products.

Identify Company Suppliers

The Company identifies our first-tier suppliers by generating reports from the Company’s applicable manufacturing and procurement systems of all manufacturers who made, and all vendors who supplied components or products, for our Covered Products.  For components delivered to the Company by distributors, the Company adds the distributors to the supplier list.  Senior managers in the supply chain organization review and finalize the supplier list (the “Supplier List”) to create a list that includes all relevant suppliers for purposes of the Rule.

Request Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates from Suppliers

The Company uses good faith efforts to identify from the Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates the smelters and refiners used by our suppliers on the Supplier List.  Annually, the Company sends a letter and the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template to the suppliers on the Supplier List.  The letter (i) reiterates the requirements of the Rule and its applicability to the Company, (ii) requests that each supplier complete the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template for all Covered Products supplied to the Company for the reporting period, and (iii) encourages suppliers to use smelters and refiners which appear on the RMAP’s Conformant Smelter List (as described below).  The Company contacts suppliers that do not respond to the Company’s request by a specified date and suppliers that submit incomplete or inaccurate requests for follow-on discussions and to request additional information, as applicable.

As set forth in the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template and the OECD Guidance, suppliers make representations or provide information regarding, among other things, (i) the country of origin for the Conflict Minerals contained in components or products provided by the supplier to the Company, (ii) whether such Conflict Minerals directly or

3



indirectly finance armed conflict in the Covered Countries, (iii) smelters and refiners in the supplier’s supply chain for such Conflict Minerals, (iv) whether such smelters and refiners have been validated in compliance with the RMAP, (v) whether such supplier uses the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template with its own suppliers to gather information, and (vi) whether the supplier has its owns conflict mineral policy that requires its direct suppliers to be conformant.

Analyze Surveys for RMAP Conformant and Active Smelters and Refiners

If correctly and fully completed, each Conflict Minerals Reporting Template identifies the smelters and refiners within the applicable supplier’s supply chain. The Company reviews the information in the completed Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates against the RMAP’s Conformant Smelter List to determine whether the smelters or refiners associated with the applicable supplier qualify as “conformant” or “RMAP Active.” We rely upon third party audits of smelters and refiners as part of the RMI’s RMAP, an audit program designed to validate smelters’ and refiners’ sourcing practices as described below. Smelters and refiners receive a “conformant” designation from RMI if (i) the audited smelter or refiner adheres to the RMAP’s assessment protocols by disclosing to independent auditors the identities and locations of the mines from which it sources Conflict Minerals and (ii) the independent auditor verifies separately that the smelter’s or refiner’s Conflict Minerals originated from conflict-free sources. The RMAP’s Conformant Smelter List includes the names, locations and links to conflict minerals policies of all smelters and refiners deemed “conformant” with the RMAP’s assessment protocols. Smelters and refiners labeled as “RMAP Active” have committed to undergo a RMAP audit but have not yet completed their audit or are participating in other cross-recognized certification programs. “RMAP Active” smelters and refiners may be at various stages of the audit cycle, anywhere from completion of the necessary documents to scheduling the audit date to enacting corrective actions in the post-audit phase, but may not retain their “active” status if they are unresponsive to requests for re-audit or corrective action past a certain time.

The Company also uses good faith efforts to identify the country of origin information from the smelters and refiners provided by our suppliers on the Supplier List through the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.

Design and Implement Strategies to Respond to Identified Risks

Participate in Existing Industry Conflict Minerals Initiatives; Devise, Adopt and Implement a Risk Management Plan; Monitor Risk Mitigation Efforts

In light of the complexity of the Company’s and our suppliers’ supply chains, the Company is currently unable to assess adequately the risk that Conflict Minerals exist in our Covered Products or whether they finance armed conflict in the DRC. However, the Company engages annually with suppliers to obtain current, accurate and complete information about our supply chains through the use of the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template and to promote “conformant” supply chains through our RMI membership. As a risk mitigation measure, the Company requires, through our supplier code of conduct, that all suppliers of Covered Products report on Conflict Minerals.
 
     Report Findings to Designated Senior Management and to the Board

The members of the Company’s internal Conflict Minerals team (consisting of senior members of the Company’s supply chain and procurement operations and the legal department) provide a report summarizing the findings from our due diligence efforts to the senior management of the Company and the Audit Committee of EchoStar’s Board of Directors. 

Independent Third-Party Audits of Smelters/Refiners
 
Due to our downstream position in the supply chain, the Company does not have a direct relationship with smelters and refiners. Further, the complexity of our supply chain and the many third parties involved between the ultimate manufacturer of our Covered Products and the original sources of the Conflict Minerals hinders the Company’s ability to perform direct audits of smelters and refiners in our supply chain.  Instead, we rely upon third party audits of smelters and refiners as part of the RMI’s RMAP, an audit program designed to validate smelters’ and refiners’ sourcing practices. The RMAP’s audit process is discussed above in more detail in “Identify and Assess the Risks in the Company’s Supply Chain.”

Additionally, through our RMI membership, we support the further development and implementation of due diligence practices and tools, such as the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template and the RMAP.

 Report Annually on Supply Chain Due Diligence
 
The Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission our Form SD, which includes this Report as Exhibit 1.01, for the reporting period of January 1 to December 31, 2018. In accordance with the OECD Guidance and the Rule, this Report is available on our website at http://ir.echostar.com/financial-information/sec-filings.
 
PART III. DESCRIPTION OF DUE DILIGENCE MEASURES PERFORMED;
RESULTS OF OUR DUE DILIGENCE MEASURES

Compilation and Analysis of Responses

For the reporting period of January 1 to December 31, 2018, the Company identified approximately 474 relevant suppliers.  In the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019, the Company sent each such supplier on the Supplier List a letter requesting completion of the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. The Company followed up with suppliers that did not respond to the request by the specified date or that submitted incomplete or inaccurate requests.

The Company received responses from 464, or approximately 98%, of the solicited suppliers, including completed Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates from 381, or approximately 80%, of the solicited suppliers. Through the use of the Conflict Minerals Response Database and access to the RMAP information, we were able to identify the smelters and refiners we believe were used to process the Conflict Minerals contained in our Covered Products as set forth in Annex I attached to this Report, as well as to identify which of those smelters and refiners were “RMAP Conformant” or “RMAP Active.”

Based on the information that was provided by the Company’s suppliers and information otherwise obtained by the Company during the due diligence process, the following table sets forth the number of “RMAP Conformant” and “RMAP Active” smelters and refiners in our supply chain for each of the Conflict Minerals used in our Covered Products:

As discussed in “Part II. Design of Our Due Diligence Analysis” above, the Company relies on the completed Conflict Minerals Reporting Templates received from our suppliers as our main source of documentation supporting the representations made by such suppliers regarding the source and chain of custody of relevant Conflict Minerals in our Covered Products during the reporting period.  The smelters and refiners identified in Annex I to this Report were identified by such suppliers and the Company cannot be certain that these smelters and refiners were in fact in the Company’s supply chain for our Covered Products.

Country of Origin of the Conflict Minerals in the Covered Products
 
Based on the information that was provided by suppliers and information otherwise obtained by the Company during the due diligence process, the Company does not have sufficient information, with respect to our Covered Products, to determine the country of origin of all of the Conflict Minerals in all of our Covered Products.  However, based on the information obtained through our reasonable country of origin inquiry and our due diligence efforts, which significantly overlap, the Company has reasonably determined that countries of origin of the Conflict Minerals in the Covered Products, to the extent known, include the Covered Countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.

Facilities Used to Process the Conflict Minerals in the Covered Products
 
Based on the information that was provided by suppliers and information otherwise obtained through the due diligence process, the Company was unable to identify with certainty all of the facilities used to process the Conflict Minerals in our Covered Products.  However, based on the information obtained through our reasonable country of origin inquiry and our due diligence efforts, which significantly overlap, the Company has reasonably determined that the facilities that were used to process the Conflict Minerals contained in our Covered Products are believed to include the smelters and refiners listed in Annex I attached to this Report. The smelters and refiners that the Company has been able to determine as “RMAP Conformant” and “RMAP Active” are identified in Annex I. However, as discussed above, the smelters and refiners identified in Annex I to this Report were identified by suppliers and the Company cannot be certain that these smelters and refiners were in fact in the Company’s supply chain for our Covered Products.
 
PART IV. IMPLEMENTATION OF STRATEGIES TO RESPOND TO IDENTIFIED RISKS AND FUTURE STEPS

Due diligence is an ongoing, proactive and reactive process. The Company engages with our suppliers to obtain current, accurate and complete information about our supply chain. Further, reporting on Conflict Minerals is a requirement for our suppliers through our supplier code of conduct.  The Company has used our RMI membership to gain a better understanding of the smelters and refiners in our supply chain and their RMAP compliance status, and we intend to continue to take advantage of the resources available to RMI members with regard to conformant sourcing.
