Hologic, Inc.
Conflict Minerals Report

This Conflict Minerals Report (CMR) of Hologic, Inc. (Hologic, our, we or the Company) has been prepared pursuant to Rule 13p-1 and Form SD promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, for the reporting period from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 (the Reporting Period).

Rule 13p-1 requires disclosure of certain information when a company manufactures or contracts to manufacture products for which “Conflict Minerals” are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. The “Conflict Minerals” for the purposes of Rule 13p-1 are gold, columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, and wolframite (including their derivatives, tantalum, tin and tungsten, and the U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future). The Covered Countries for the purposes of Rule 13p-1 are the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the DRC), the Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia and Angola.

In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) guidance, this CMR is not audited.

As required by Rule 13p-1, this CMR relates to products (the Covered Products): (i) for which Conflict Minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of those products; (ii) that were manufactured, or contracted to be manufactured, by the Company; and (iii) for which the manufacture was completed during the Reporting Period. As a result of our reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI) and the due diligence procedures described below, Hologic has identified certain components in its supply chain that contain necessary Conflict Minerals. These components are included in a number of the Company’s products manufactured at its manufacturing facilities.

Hologic has conducted a good faith RCOI regarding the necessary Conflict Minerals used in its products. This good faith RCOI was designed to reasonably determine whether any of the necessary Conflict Minerals originated in the Covered Countries or came from recycled or scrap sources. The Company's primary means of determining country of origin of such Conflict Minerals was by conducting a supply chain survey. Survey procedures included evaluating Hologic’s supplier responses to the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA)/Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (the Template). Where applicable, the Company also inquired as to whether the supplier has a policy on Conflict Minerals and made follow-up inquiries with appropriate supplier personnel as necessary.

Design of Due Diligence
Based on the Company’s RCOI, the Company was also required to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the Conflict Minerals in its products. The design of the due diligence measures described in this CMR is intended to comply in all material respects with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High Risk Areas: Third Edition, including the related supplements on gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (collectively, the OECD Guidance). The OECD Guidance is an internationally recognized due diligence framework for identifying the source of Conflict Minerals, which includes the following steps:

    Step 1: Establish strong company management systems
    Step 2: Identify and assess risks in the supply chain
    Step 3: Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks
    Step 4: Carry out independent third-party audit of smelter(s)/refiner(s) due diligence practices
    Step 5: Report annually on supply chain due diligence

The OECD Guidance is written for the entire mineral supply chain, and therefore Hologic's due diligence measures were tailored to include steps appropriate for "downstream" companies such as the Company.

Due Diligence Measures Performed
The Company’s supply chain is complex, and there are many third parties in the supply chain between Hologic’s suppliers and the original sources of any Conflict Minerals. The Company does not purchase Conflict Minerals directly from mines, smelters or refiners. The Company must therefore rely on its suppliers to provide information regarding the origin of Conflict Minerals that are in Hologic’s products. Given this context, the Company undertook the following measures to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the Conflict Minerals in its products for the Reporting Period:
i.Hologic has established a management system to support its supply chain due diligence.
a.Hologic has adopted an organizational structure and communication process that is intended to improve supply chain transparency. This system is meant to help Hologic obtain critical information regarding the supply chain of Conflict Minerals used in its products.
b.Hologic has adopted a company policy regarding Conflict Minerals in its supply chain. This policy is publicly available at the Company’s website: http://investors.hologic.com/governance/governance-documents/default.aspx, under the heading "Product Components/Conflict Minerals".
c.Hologic has assigned authority and responsibility to a multi-disciplinary team consisting of individuals from Finance, Manufacturing, Procurement, and Information Services (collectively, the Conflict Minerals Committee). The Conflict Minerals Committee receives periodic support from Hologic’s General Counsel and reports significant Conflict Minerals matters directly to the Chief Financial Officer.
d.Hologic has distributed communications to its suppliers making them aware of Rule 13p-1 and Hologic’s related policies and apprising them of Hologic’s expectations regarding compliance with Rule 13p-1, Hologic’s related policies and any other requests that Hologic may send to them.
e.Hologic maintains business records relating to Conflict Minerals due diligence in accordance with the Company's existing processes.
ii.Hologic has taken steps to identify and assess risk in its supply chain.
a.Hologic conducted a search for Conflict Minerals in its supply chain using its procurement and engineering systems. These systems contain bills-of-materials for Hologic products and an approved vendors list.
b.Hologic engaged its immediate suppliers in an effort to identify the smelters/refiners of any Conflict Minerals in its supply chain during the Reporting Period.
c.Hologic used the Template to assess its suppliers’ use, or lack thereof, of Conflict Minerals in the products and materials Hologic purchases.
d.Hologic identified suppliers in its supply chain for the Reporting Period by reviewing its procurement and engineering systems and mapping the components in its bills-of-materials against the approved vendors list. Hologic sent surveys based on the Template (each, a Survey) to the suppliers that were identified. Through May 6, 2021, a significant amount of Surveys were returned. Several follow-up reminders were sent to suppliers who did not respond to the Survey. In certain instances, if the response was too general (i.e. declaration at company level instead of product level), Hologic conducted a further assessment of the composition of the suppliers’ product or materials in an effort to determine if the product or materials contained Conflict Minerals. Hologic also reviewed Survey responses from suppliers that supplied similar products and materials to evaluate the consistency and accuracy of responses.
iii.Hologic has designed and implemented a strategy to respond to identified risks.
a.Hologic’s Conflict Minerals Committee monitors internal accountability with respect to the implementation of the supply chain due diligence process for Conflict Minerals compliance and reports significant findings of the supply chain risk assessment to upper level management.
b.Hologic has designed and implemented a risk management plan that includes, but is not limited to, requests for suppliers to complete Surveys and incorporating Conflict Minerals language into Hologic’s supplier contracts. If a supplier identifies that it has Conflict Minerals in the products or materials it supplies, Hologic engages that supplier in an effort to determine the locations of the smelter(s)/refiner(s) of those Conflict Minerals.
c.For certain Survey responses that identified smelters in Hologic's supply chain that are providing Conflict Minerals, Hologic reviewed the Responsible Minerals Initiative's (RMI) smelter list to determine if those smelters are validated as Conformant Smelters & Refiners as part of the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP).

iv.Hologic has determined that reliance upon independent third-party audits of smelter/refiner due diligence practices by RMI is appropriate.
a.Hologic is a downstream company and is many steps removed from the smelters and refiners that produce the necessary Conflict Minerals contained in Hologic's products or components of Hologic's products. Hologic does not purchase raw minerals or ores, and does not, to the best of its knowledge, directly purchase Conflict Minerals from any of the Covered Countries. Accordingly, Hologic does not perform or direct audits of these entities' supply chains of Conflict Minerals. However, Hologic supports industry-wide efforts and the development and implementation of independent third-party audits of smelters and refiners, such as the RMI's RMAP.
v.Hologic complies with Step 5 of the OECD Guidance through the filing of this report (and the related Form SD) with the SEC and by making these materials publicly available on its website at www.hologic.com.

Based on the information that was provided by the suppliers that Hologic surveyed and otherwise obtained through the due diligence process, described above, Hologic believes that, to the extent reasonably determinable by Hologic, the facilities that were used to process the Conflict Minerals contained in the Covered Products included 333 facilities that were listed in the Template as "known smelters or refineries," or in the United States Department of Commerce's global list of "all known conflict mineral processing facilities worldwide" (collectively, Known Smelters or Refineries). Of these 333 Known Smelters or Refineries, 237 received a "conformant" designation from an independent third party audit program as of May 6, 2021.

Despite repeated efforts to obtain completed Surveys, a number of suppliers did not respond to Survey requests. In addition, because the Company is several levels removed from the source of the Conflict Minerals, despite its due diligence efforts, it was unable to identify or further investigate the source of any Conflict Minerals supplied by certain suppliers who were either non-responsive or uncertain about where the Conflict Minerals used in products they supplied to the Company originated. Hologic continues to work with suppliers throughout its supply chain to re-validate, improve, and refine their reported information, taking into account supply chain fluctuations and other changes in status or scope and relationships over time.

Hologic believes that, to the extent reasonably determinable, the facilities that were used to process the Conflict Minerals contained in the Covered Products included the smelters and refiners listed in the table below. This table includes only facilities that are Known Smelters or Refineries.

The Company expects to take the following steps, among others, to continue to improve its due diligence measures and to further mitigate the risk that the necessary Conflict Minerals contained in the Company’s supply chain benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries: (i) continue to encourage suppliers to implement responsible sourcing; (ii) review "conformant" smelter lists from independent "conformant" smelter validation programs; (iii) contact our suppliers to request that they obtain Conflict Minerals through a supply chain that ultimately starts with smelters or refiners that have received a "conformant" designation from an independent "conformant" smelter validation program; and (iv) continue to engage with suppliers to obtain current, accurate and complete information about the supply chain.

Hologic has provided information as of the date of this report. Subsequent events, such as the inability or unwillingness of any suppliers, smelters or refiners to comply with Hologic's Product Components and Conflict Minerals Policy, may affect Hologic's future determinations under Rule 13p-1.
