Conflict Minerals Report

For Calendar Year Ended December 31, 2017

Introduction

This Conflict Minerals Report (this “Report”) of Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (“Dolby” or the “Company”) has been prepared pursuant to Rule 13p-1 and Form SD (the “Rule”) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, for the reporting period from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. 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 referred to as “Conflict Minerals” are gold, columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite and wolframite, including their metallic derivatives which include tantalum, tin and tungsten. The “Covered Countries” for purposes of the Rule and this Report are the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia and Angola.

Dolby has determined that certain Conflict Minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by us during calendar year 2017. These products are referred to in this Report as “Covered Products.” Dolby has conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“RCOI”) reasonably designed to determine if Conflict Minerals originated in the Covered Countries. Based on our RCOI, Dolby believes that certain of the Conflict Minerals used in our products may have originated in the Covered Countries. Because of this finding, we performed additional due diligence on the source and chain of custody of these Conflict Minerals based on the Organisation 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 (“Framework”), to determine if the Conflict Minerals that may have originated in the Covered Countries benefited armed groups. As such, we believe our process was reasonably designed and performed in good faith. After performing the RCOI and due diligence in conformity with the Framework, we were unable to comprehensively determine the origin of all Conflict Minerals used in our products, the facilities used to process them, their country of origin, and their mine or location of origin.

Much of Dolby’s revenues are associated with Licensing and Services as opposed to physical hardware products. As reported in Dolby’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 29, 2017, Dolby’s Product (hardware) revenue for the fiscal year period comprised approximately 9% of reported revenues of $1.08 billion. Most of Dolby’s hardware products are manufactured by contract manufacturers. These factors result in a relatively small supply base as indicated in the RCOI summary. Descriptions of our covered products are provided below.

RCOI

Our RCOI consisted of requesting a completed Responsible Materials Initiative (“RMI”) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) from our contract manufacturers and suppliers of materials/products/components received by Dolby in 2017 for purchases made through Dolby’s standard purchasing systems. Responses were reviewed for completeness and consistency, and we routinely followed up with our suppliers for corrections and clarifications as needed. We submitted this questionnaire to 94 suppliers and manufacturers of components and products purchased directly by Dolby. We did not receive complete responses to the questionnaire from 24 of these suppliers (25.5%) despite repeated follow-up attempts with these nonresponsive suppliers. We were informed that many of Dolby’s suppliers have not received responses from all of their upstream suppliers. Of the responses received, 22 suppliers indicated that they source Conflict Minerals from the Covered Countries. Based on these responses, we conducted additional due diligence on the smelters and refiners identified.

Due Diligence Framework

Dolby’s due diligence program was designed to be in conformance in all material respects with the OECD Framework.

Due Diligence Measures Taken

The due diligence measures taken include, but are not limited to, those described as follows:

Dolby has assembled a Conflict Minerals Project Team comprised of representatives from Engineering, Legal, and Procurement who meet periodically and provide oversight to our Conflict Minerals program. In 2013, Dolby adopted a Conflict Minerals Policy, available at https://www.dolby.com/us/en/about/conflict-minerals-policy.html which describes our commitment to minimizing the use of Conflict Minerals that finance or benefit armed groups. Dolby has communicated this policy to our suppliers. We encourage suppliers to seek conflict-free sources of Conflict Minerals that are validated as conflict-free by third-party audits such as those arranged by the Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (“RMAP”) and its cross-recognized programs (e.g., RJC (Responsible Jewelry Council) and LBMA (London Bullion Market Association)). If we become aware of a supplier who does not meet the expectations specified in our Conflict Minerals Policy, including the provision of a CMRT, our Director of Procurement may seek alternative sources of supply for our products or components. In support of Dolby’s Conflict Minerals program, we participate in industry groups on the topic of Conflict Minerals. Dolby is an active member of RMI and we utilize data from RMI for smelter compliance status and reasonable country of origin information.

Findings and Conclusions

Through our RCOI, certain suppliers reported the use of smelters or refiners with an RMI Audit Status of “Outreach Required”, “Non-Conformant”, or “Communication Suspended—Not Interested”. As the Conflict Minerals information provided by many of our suppliers is reported at the “company-level”, it is uncertain whether these smelters or refiners are in fact present in our supply chain. Notwithstanding this uncertainty, we have asked our suppliers to request that these smelters or refiners undergo an independent third-party audit or be removed from our supply chain. Where contact information is available, we have communicated this request directly to these smelters or refiners. Should these smelters or refiners decline to undergo an independent third-party audit and our supplier refuses to remove these smelters from our supply chain, we will evaluate our relationship with that supplier and explore alternatives.

Dolby did not receive responses from certain of our suppliers. We made repeated requests that these suppliers provide a CMRT. A list of these nonresponsive suppliers was provided to our Director of Procurement who is determining if Dolby will continue to purchase components from these non-responsive suppliers or if alternative suppliers can be identified and utilized in the future. We continue to include provisions in new supply agreements relating to the gathering of Conflict Minerals information, the provision of a CMRT, and the sourcing of Conflict Free materials to encourage greater cooperation by the companies in our supply chain.

As we have not received conclusive data from all of our direct suppliers, we are therefore unable to make a definitive determination about all sources of the tin, tungsten, tantalum or gold in our products and cannot determine whether our supply chain is “DRC conflict-free”. However, we received no information from our direct suppliers indicating that the tin, tantalum, tungsten or gold directly or indirectly financed or benefitted armed groups in the DRC or adjoining countries.    Some suppliers disclosed to us that scrap/recycled sources of gold, tantalum, tin and/or tungsten were identified in their supply chains and therefore did not require due diligence. The table in Annex 1 lists the names and countries of the smelters or refiners reported by our suppliers. Annex 2 lists the countries of origin identified as the sources of those smelters and refiners.


We believe that requesting our contract manufacturers and component/product/material suppliers to complete the RMI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template and encouraging these upstream suppliers to source materials from conflict-free sources such as those validated by the RMAP, the communication of our Conflicts Minerals Policy, as well as our review of the smelter or refiner information provided and our review of the country of origin of source materials of those smelters or refiners represents a reasonable effort to determine the mines or location of origin of the Conflict Minerals in our supply chain. Moving forward, the Company will continue to implement commercially reasonable procedures to prevent Conflict Minerals that finance or benefit armed groups from being introduced into our supply chain.

Independent Private Sector Audit (IPSA)

Not required for reporting year 2017.

Risk Factors

The statements above are based on the RCOI process and due diligence performed in good faith by the Company. These statements are based on the infrastructure and information available at the time. A number of factors could introduce errors or otherwise affect Dolby’s Conflict Minerals status. These factors include, but are not limited to, gaps in supplier data, gaps in smelter or refiner data, errors or omissions by suppliers, errors or omissions by smelters or refiners, the definition of a smelter or refiner not being finalized at the end of the reporting period, all instances of Conflict Minerals necessary to the functionality or manufacturing of Dolby’s products possibly not yet having been identified, gaps in supplier education and knowledge, timeliness of data, public information not discovered during a reasonable search, errors in public data, language barriers and translation, supplier and smelter or refiner unfamiliarity with the protocol due to this being the early years for SEC disclosures for Section 1502 of Dodd-Frank, oversights or errors in independent third party audits conducted by the RMAP, LBMA, or RJC, Covered Countries sourced materials being declared secondary materials, companies going out of business, auditing programs being not equally advanced for all industry segments and metals, and smuggling of Conflict Minerals from the Covered Countries to countries beyond the Covered Countries.
