Conflict Minerals Report
Dated:  May 31, 2017

For Reporting Period from January 1 to December 31, 2016

Introduction

The following report is the Conflict Minerals Report for Cogentix Medical, Inc. for the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2016.  This report is being filed as an exhibit to Cogentix Medical’s specialized report on Form SD (“ Form SD ”), and is intended to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “ Conflict Minerals Rule ”), which was adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“ SEC ”) to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to conflict minerals as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.

The Conflict Minerals Rule imposes certain reporting obligations on SEC registrants who manufacture or contract to manufacture products that contain certain “conflict minerals” which are necessary to the functionality or production of their products.  For purposes of this report and the Conflict Minerals Rule, “ conflict minerals ” are defined as columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum, and tungsten. These requirements apply to registrants wherever the geographic origin of the conflict minerals and whether or not they fund armed conflict.

If a registrant manufactures or contracts to manufacture products that contain these conflict minerals and these conflict minerals are necessary for the functionality or production of the registrant’s products, the registrant must conduct in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding these conflict minerals.  This inquiry must be reasonably designed to determine: (i) whether any of the conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an “adjoining country” (within the meaning of Item 1.01(d)(1) of Form SD) (the “ DRC Region ”), or are “conflict minerals from recycled or scrap sources” (within the meaning of Item 1.01(d)(6) of Form SD), and (ii) if such conflict minerals originated in the DRC Region, whether the conflict minerals directly or indirectly financed or benefited an “armed group” (within the meaning of Item 1.01(d)(2) of Form SD).  If a product does not contain conflict minerals necessary for the functionality or production of that product that directly or indirectly finance or benefit an armed group, then the product is considered “ DRC conflict free ” (within the meaning of Item 1.01(d)(4) of Form SD).  If, after exercising due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals in connection with a registrant’s reasonable country of origin inquiry, the registrant is unable to determine whether or not its products qualify as “DRC conflict free,” then the registrant must conclude that such products are “ DRC conflict undeterminable ” (within the meaning of Item 1.01(d)(5) of Form SD).  Any registrant that manufactures or contracts to manufacture products that are “DRC conflict undeterminable” must provide a description of those products, the facilities used to process the necessary conflict minerals in those products, if known, the country of origin of the necessary conflict minerals in those products, if known, and the efforts to determine the mine or location of origin with the greatest possible specificity, in a Conflict Minerals Report to be filed as an exhibit to Form SD.
 
The report presented herein is not audited as the Conflict Minerals Rule provides that for a smaller reporting company, if a registrant’s products are “DRC conflict undeterminable” in 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016 (four-year period), the Conflict Minerals Report is not subject to an independent private sector audit.

Company Overview

Cogentix Medical, Inc., headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota with additional operations in Orangeburg, New York; Westborough, Massachusetts; The Netherlands and the United Kingdom, is a global medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets innovative proprietary technologies serving the urology, urogynecology/gynecology, ENT and GI markets.

We design, develop, manufacture and market products for flexible endoscopy with our unique product lines featuring a streamlined visualization system and proprietary sterile disposable microbial barrier, known as EndoSheath technology, providing users with efficient and cost effective endoscope turnover while enhancing patient safety.  We also commercialize the Urgent® PC Neuromodulation System, an FDA-cleared device that delivers percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) for the office-based treatment of overactive bladder (OAB).  OAB is a chronic condition that affects approximately 42 million U.S. adults.  The symptoms include urinary urgency, frequency and urge incontinence.  We also offer Macroplastique®, an injectable urethral bulking agent for the treatment of adult female stress urinary incontinence primarily due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency.

Unless the context requires otherwise, in this report, the terms “Cogentix,” “Cogentix Medical,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our” and similar references refer to Cogentix Medical, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.

Products, Supply Chain and RCOI Conclusion

Cogentix Medical has implemented processes regarding the Conflict Minerals Rules.
As of the date of this report, we conducted an analysis of the materials contained in all of our products, and found that conflict minerals are necessary for the functionality of the following products:
 
1.
UrgentPC Stimulators .  The UrgentPC Stimulator is a battery powered, external pulse generator and is designed for multiple uses. The UrgentPC Stimulator is to be used only in conjunction with the UrgentPC lead set.
2.
UrgentPC lead sets .  The UrgentPC lead set (comprised of a lead wire, needle electrode and alcohol pad) transfers the electrical current from the UrgentPC Stimulator to the tibial nerve via the needle electrode and is designed as a disposable single use product.
3.
Endoscopes .  The endoscopes either contain fiber optic light and image bundles, with connections to a portable light source or fiber optic light cable (fiber scopes) or CCD image sensors attached to PCBA’s, used in conjunction with a digital video processor via a video cable (videoscopes).  The endoscopes are designed for multiple uses.
4.
Digital processing units (DPU’s) .  The DPUs are used to display images generated by the endoscope in a desktop configuration.  The DPU is to be used only in conjunction with endoscopes.
 
2

The endoscope products are produced through a combination of in-house assembly processes, whereas the digital processing unit, the UrgentPC Stimulator and the UrgentPC lead set are produced by means of outsourced manufacturing using three different suppliers.  We rely on each of these three suppliers to provide us information on the origin of the conflict minerals contained in the products they supply to us, including sources of conflict minerals that are supplied to them from lower tier suppliers.

Because these four products contain conflict minerals, and per the requirements of the Conflict Mineral Rule, we performed a reasonable country of origin inquiry (“ RCOI ”) to determine if the “necessary conflict minerals” used in such products originated in the covered countries or are from recycled or scrap materials. The RCOI performed by us included:

1.
Assessing the RCOI activities already performed by the suppliers for the UrgentPC Stimulator and UrgentPC lead sets.
2.
Contacting the supplier of the digital processing unit (DPU) by means of a survey, and requesting information on the origin of the conflict minerals used in their product. The supplier has provided documentation for compliance of the DPU units with claimed exemptions for multiple components.
3.
Conducting a survey of the 185 suppliers of parts for the endoscopes, requesting (a) their review of parts they supply to Cogentix , (b) if such parts contained gold, tin, tantalum or tungsten, and (c) if so, what activities have been undertaken by the supplier to locate and identify the origin of these minerals.  As of the date of this report, 145 suppliers have responded indicating that there is no change from the response provided during last year’s reporting period.

Based on the most recent information received from the suppliers of our Urgent PC Stimulator and the Urgent PC lead sets, we have concluded that:

·
UrgentPC Stimulator .  The conflict minerals contained in this product may have originated in the covered countries, and we have not been able to determine whether the conflict minerals come from recycled or scrap sources, the facilities used to process them, their country of origin, or their mine or location of origin
·
UrgentPC lead sets .  The conflict minerals contained in this product may have originated in the covered countries, and we have not been able to determine whether the conflict minerals come from recycled or scrap sources, the facilities used to process them, their country of origin, or their mine or location of origin.

As of the date of this report, we have not received sufficient information from the 185 suppliers for the parts of our endoscope product regarding whether such supplier’s products contain country of origin conflict minerals.  Therefore, we have concluded that the conflict minerals contained in endoscope products may have originated in the covered countries, and we have not been able to determine whether the conflict minerals came from recycled or scrap sources, the facilities used to process them, their country of origin, or their mine or location of origin.  As a result of the conclusions of our inquiries we believe that these products are subject to the reporting obligations of Rule 13p-1 (“ DRC conflict undeterminable”) .
 
3

As of the date of this report, we do not know the specific facilities used to process the necessary conflict minerals in any of our four products nor the specific country of origin of such conflict minerals.  As a company in the medical device industry, we are several levels removed from the actual mining of conflict minerals.  We do not make purchases of raw ore or unrefined conflict minerals and make no purchases in the DRC Region.  Due to the breadth and complexity of our products and their respective supply chains, we believe it will take additional time for many of our suppliers to verify the origin of the necessary conflict minerals in our four products.  We intend to continue our due diligence on the source and custody of the necessary conflict minerals in our products.

Conflicts Minerals Policy Statement

We have adopted the following Conflict Minerals Policy statement:

Cogentix is committed to ensure that conflict minerals contained in our products are sourced with due respect for human rights, the need to avoid contributing to conflict, and the desire to support development through our supply chain practices.

At the same time, Cogentix does not ban the use of conflict minerals that originate in conflict-affected and high-risk areas when they are sourced in accordance with existing international standards.  Avoiding the sourcing of all conflict minerals from these areas would cause a de facto embargo with serious adverse impact on the living conditions of local populations.

Cogentix has established a conflict minerals compliance program that is designed to follow the framework established by The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (the “ OECD ”) for providing sourcing expectations to our suppliers, and meeting the sourcing expectations of our customers, regulators and stakeholders. The conflict minerals policy statement is publicly available under the “Investors-Corporate Governance-Conflict Minerals” section of Cogentix’s corporate website at www.cogentixmedical.com .

We have communicated this policy to our suppliers of the UrgentPC Stimulator, the UrgentPC lead sets and digital processing unit products.  Based on the analysis of the survey results from the component suppliers for our endoscope product, we will communicate this policy to all suppliers that provide components which potentially contain the conflict minerals.

Due Diligence Framework

Our due diligence measures have been designed to conform, in all material respects, with the framework in the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (“ OECD Guidance ”) and the related supplements for gold and for tin, tantalum and tungsten.

Management Systems.

Internal Team
We have established a management system for conflict minerals.  Our management system includes a Conflict Minerals Taskforce (the “ CM Taskforce ”), sponsored by our VP of Quality, Regulatory, and Clinical Affairs as well as executive level representation and team members from relevant functions such as Manufacturing, Quality and Engineering.  The CM Taskforce is responsible for implementing our conflict minerals compliance strategy and is led by our VP of Quality, Regulatory, and Clinical Affairs who acts as the executive conflict minerals program manager.  Senior management is briefed in the second quarter of our fiscal year about our due diligence efforts.

Control Systems
As we outsource the manufacturing of our UrgentPC Stimulator, UrgentPC lead sets and DPU products, which each contain conflict minerals, to three suppliers, we have requested those suppliers to engage in industry-wide initiatives, such as the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition – Global e-Sustainability Initiative’s (“ EICC-GeSI ”), Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (“ CFSI ”), the ITRI Tin Supply Chain Initiative and the Public Private Alliance for Responsible Minerals Trade. Initiatives like these will aid in the transparency of the conflict minerals in the supply chain.  In addition, we will request and encourage all additional suppliers that provide components for our products that contain conflict minerals, including the endoscope, to engage in the above mentioned initiatives as well.

Supplier Engagement
With respect to the OECD requirement to strengthen engagement with suppliers, we have created communication mechanisms for supplier sourcing expectations to be in-line with our Conflict Minerals Policy.  The expectations require suppliers to provide information about the source of conflict minerals and to commit to being or becoming a “DRC conflict-free” supplier, and to participate in industry-wide initiatives to provide better information on the supply chain transparency regarding conflict minerals and their sources, or select alternate sources to ultimately thrive to a supply chain that is proven “DRC conflict free”.

Cogentix has contracted with Assent Compliance, a consultant specializing in data collection for conflict minerals, to assist in the due diligence efforts for the reasonable country of origin inquiry.  Assent will coordinate communications directly with our suppliers in order to receive information which is as current and detailed as possible.

Grievance Mechanism
We have a grievance mechanism whereby employees and suppliers can report violations of our policies, including our Conflict Minerals Policy.  Identified issues pertaining to the Conflict Minerals Policy can be reported to the VP of Product Development & Quality Systems who functions as the program manager for the CM Taskforce.  It is the responsibility of the VP of Product Development & Quality Systems to ensure that any issues raised are addressed by the CM Taskforce and that senior management is briefed by the CM task force on a regular basis.  The grievance mechanism is publicly available under the “Investors-Corporate Governance-Conflict Minerals” section of our corporate website at www.cogentixmedical.com As of the date of this report, we have not received any reports of violations of our Conflict Minerals Policy.

Maintain Records
We have established and implemented a system to retain all relevant information related to its due diligence process to ensure that such information obtained by us in connection with our conflict minerals due diligence is documented, readily available and accessible by appropriate Cogentix personnel and retained for future use.

Identify and Assess Risk in the Supply Chain.

As a result of our size, the breath and complexity of our products, and the constant evolution of our supply chain, it is difficult to identify actors upstream from our direct suppliers.

We have identified the direct suppliers for all of our products, and are in the process of identifying all suppliers providing components for our products that contain conflict minerals.  T he suppliers of our Urgent PC Stimulator and Urgent PC lead sets have responded to our request for information on the sources of the conflict minerals by means of a CFSI Reporting Template (the “ Template ”).  We received a response from the supplier of our DPU product and some of the component suppliers of our endoscope product regarding any information they have on the origin of the conflict minerals used in their products and any actions that they have undertaken to locate and identify the origin of those conflict minerals. We have relied on these responses to provide us with information about the source of the conflict minerals contained in the products supplied to us. All of these suppliers are similarly reliant upon information provided by their suppliers. Several of these suppliers are also SEC registrants and subject to the Conflict Minerals Rule.  At this point, the information provided by the suppliers does not allow a definitive declaration as to the extent of the conflict mineral presence in our products.

Design and Implement a Strategy to Respond to Risks.

We are working with the three suppliers that provide our finished products containing conflict minerals, as well as the component suppliers in our direct supply chain to move them towards becoming and/or maintaining the status of “DRC conflict free” suppliers.  The time frame for the suppliers to move towards “DRC conflict free” will be dependent on the ability to receive conflict minerals source information from its complete supply chain to confirm the origin of the conflict minerals and the availability of alternative suppliers.  As of the date of this report, we have found no reason to terminate a contract or find a replacement supplier.

Independent Third Party Audit of Supply Chain Due Diligence at Identified Points in the Supply Chain.

We do not have a direct relationship with the conflict minerals smelters and refiners, nor do we perform direct audits of these entities that provide our supply chain the conflict minerals.  However, we rely upon our suppliers and their participation in industry efforts such as CFSI to influence smelters and refiners to get audited and certified through CFSI’s CFS Program.

Report on Supply Chain Due Diligence.

We use this report as the mechanism to report on the supply chain due diligence.  This report is also publicly available under the “Investors-Corporate Governance-Conflict Minerals” section of our corporate website at www.cogentixmedical.com .

Due Diligence Results

Request Information.

We requested information from our finished goods suppliers that are within the scope of the RCOI regarding the origin of the conflict minerals used in the supplied products. The suppliers of our UrgentPC Stimulator and UrgentPC lead sets have conducted surveys using the Template developed by the EICC-GeSI.  The Template was developed to facilitate disclosure and communication of information regarding smelters that provide material to a company’s supply chain.  It includes questions regarding a company’s conflict free policy, engagement with its direct suppliers, and a listing of the smelters the company and its suppliers use.  In addition, the Template contains questions about the origin of conflict minerals included in their products, as well as supplier due diligence.  The Template is being used by many companies in their due diligence processes related to conflict minerals. For the remaining suppliers (direct supplier of the DPU and the component suppliers of our endoscope product), an e-mail survey has been sent to them requesting review of the product or parts they supplied to Cogentix and if such product or parts contained gold, tin, tantalum or tungsten, and if so, what activities have been undertaken to locate and identify the origin of these minerals.

Survey Responses.

The suppliers of our UrgentPC Stimulator and UrgentPC lead sets products responded and provided information on their ROIC and due diligence by supplying information using the Template. As of the date of this report, we are awaiting additional information from 33 of the component suppliers for the endoscope.

Based on the Template review of the suppliers of our UrgentPC Stimulator and UrgentPC lead sets, it is uncertain or unknown that the conflict minerals contained in our product that may have originated in the DRC Region financed or benefited armed groups in those countries.  As a result of that due diligence, we have concluded in good faith that the conflict minerals contained in our UrgentPC Stimulators and UrgentPC lead sets are “DRC conflict undeterminable”.  For the digital processing unit product and endoscope product, we do not have sufficient information as it relates to the country of origin of the conflict minerals.  Therefore, we concluded that the conflict minerals contained in those products may have originated in the covered countries, and we have not been able to determine whether the conflict minerals came from recycled or scrap sources, the facilities used to process them, their country of origin, or their mine or location of origin.  As a result of that due diligence, we have concluded in good faith that the conflict minerals contained in our endoscopes and digital processing units also are “DRC conflict undeterminable.”

Efforts to determine mine location of origin.

As we rely on the suppliers of our products and components that contain conflict minerals, we have determined that seeking information about conflict minerals smelters and refiners represents the most reasonable effort we can make to determine the mines or locations of origin of the conflict minerals in our supply chain.  To that end, Assent has been contracted to work directly with our suppliers to help identify the source of materials that are contained within our product.
 
7

Smelters or Refiners
As a result of the due diligence efforts by the suppliers of our UrgentPC Stimulator and UrgentPC lead sets that provided the Template, the following smelters or refiners have been identified by those suppliers as listed in Annex 1 .  However, it was uncertain or unknown as whether or not the minerals procured from these smelter or refiners originate from the DRC Region.

Steps to be taken to Mitigate Risk

Since December 31, 2013 and continuing through Dec 31, 2016, we have taken the following steps to improve the due diligence process and to further mitigate any risk that the necessary conflict minerals in our products could benefit armed groups in the DRC Region:

-
Continued due diligence efforts with direct suppliers and component suppliers.
-
Prepared language for a conflict minerals flow-down clause to be used in new or renewed supplier contracts.
-
Engaged with suppliers and direct them to training resources to attempt to increase the response rate and improve the content of the supplier survey responses.
-
Contracted with Assent to work directly with our supply base to identify source of raw materials.
-
Provided expectations to our suppliers that when found to be supplying conflict minerals from sources that support conflict in the DRC Region to establish an alternative source of conflict minerals that does not support such conflict.
