The current "Conflict Minerals Law" dictates supply
chain due diligence and public disclosure related to the source of these
minerals. Metlfab is committed to fulfilling this regulation and plans to abide

Metlfab has worked with its primary
suppliers which procure these metals, to express our concern about this issue
and have requested documentation validating their efforts to ensure the
materials they purchase from their supply chain are "conflict free". Metlfab's
primary suppliers have documented their efforts of addressing the issue of

inspiring their efforts to deal with these multifaceted issues.

determined, to the best of our ability, that no materials purchased have
