Section 1     Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01     Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
This Form SD of Black Box Corporation (“Black Box,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) is filed pursuant to Rule 13p-1 (collectively, including the Form SD, the “Rule”) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (the “Act”) for the reporting period January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 (the “2016 Compliance Period”).
Black Box evaluated its current product lines and determined that, for the 2016 Compliance Year, certain products we manufacture or contract to manufacture contain gold, columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite and wolframite, including their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin and tungsten (the “Conflict Minerals” that are necessary to the functionality or production of such product line (“Covered Products”). Accordingly, we undertook a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) to determine whether the Conflict Minerals contained in our current product lines were sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or an adjoining country (collectively referred to as the “Covered Countries”) or from recycled or scrap sources. Following such inquiry, we concluded in good faith that in 2016 we did not have sufficient information from our suppliers to reach a conclusion as to all sources of Conflict Minerals in the Covered Products.
Black Box exercised due diligence, as more fully described in the attached Conflict Minerals Report, to determine the source and chain of custody of Conflict Minerals for the Covered Products. See Appendix A for smelters and refiners that were obtained via company-level responses from our suppliers.

Exhibit 1.01
BLACK BOX CORPORATION
Conflict Minerals Report
For the Reporting Period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016
Introduction
This Conflict Minerals Report of Black Box Corporation (“Black Box,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) is filed for the reporting period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 (the “2016 Compliance Period”) in accordance with Section 13(p)-1 and Form SD (collectively, the “Rule”) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Act”). The Rule imposes a reporting obligation of certain information when a company “manufactures” or “contracts to manufacture” products for which the conflict 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 (the “Conflict Minerals”). The “Covered Countries” for purposes of the Rule are the Democratic Republic of Congo and the adjoining countries (as defined in the Rule).
Company Overview
Black Box is a leading digital solutions provider dedicated to helping customers design, build, manage and secure their Information Technology (“IT”) infrastructure. The Company offers Services and Products that it distributes through two platforms it has built over its 41-year history. Our Services platform is comprised of engineering and design, project management, field service management, network operations centers, our national technology team, national and international sales teams and technology solutions centers, which include dedicated sales and engineering resources. The primary services offered through this platform include managed services, infrastructure services (including wired and wireless network solutions, structured cabling and video/AV services), communications lifecycle services, unified communications and data center services. Under the Products platform, we provide networking solutions through the sale of products for KVM switching, IT infrastructure, specialty networking and multimedia.
Description of Products Covered
One or more of the Conflict Minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of many products across Black Box’s Product platform and Services platform, that were manufactured, or contracted to be manufactured, by the Company during the 2016 Compliance Period (the “Covered Products”). Therefore, the Company undertook a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) to determine whether these Conflict Minerals originated from the Covered Countries.
Various components and subassemblies for the Covered Products are sourced from a global supply base that include distributors, value added resellers, original equipment manufacturers and contract manufacturers. These components and subassemblies are used, in whole or in part, by Black Box to manufacture, or to have contract manufactured, certain products in its Product platform and, to a lesser extent, its’ Services platform. Since these components and subassemblies come from numerous suppliers, Black Box’s knowledge about these products is largely limited to information provided by its suppliers regarding the contents of these products as well as whether Conflict Minerals are present in a product.

Page 1 of 15



Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”)
Having determined that the Rule applies to the Covered Products, we undertook an inquiry of our suppliers on Conflict Minerals that were in the supply chain in 2016 to determine whether these Conflict Minerals were sourced from the Covered Countries or came from recycled or scrap resources. For such inquiry, the Company surveyed only those suppliers who source products that contain Conflict Minerals that are necessary to the functionality or production using the EICC-GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (“CMRT”) version 4.10 or higher. The Company uses an online third-party platform that is dedicated to compliance with Conflict Minerals (hereinafter referred to as the “Online Platform”) to administer supplier surveys. This Online Platform includes automated data validation in an effort to increase the accuracy of submissions and identify any contradictory answers in the CMRT.
Black Box has concluded in good faith that during the 2016 Compliance Period (i) Black Box has manufactured and contract manufactured products that contain Conflict Minerals that are necessary to the functionality and production of such products and (ii) Black Box did not have sufficient information from our suppliers to reach a conclusion as to all sources of Conflict Minerals in the Covered Products.
Due Diligence
On an annual basis, Black Box exercises due diligence to determine the source and chain of custody of Conflict Minerals for the Covered Products. Black Box’s due diligence conforms in all material respects with the 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 Second Edition (OECD 2012) (“OECD Framework” or the “Guidance”) and the related supplements for each of the Conflict Minerals. The Guidance identifies five steps for due diligence that should be implemented and provides guidance as to how to achieve each step. We developed our due diligence process to address each of these five steps.

Black Box, as a purchaser of materials, components and products, is many steps removed from the mining of Conflict Minerals and does not purchase raw ore or unrefined Conflict Minerals. Identifying the presence of Conflict Minerals is a highly complex and challenging undertaking and the origin of these minerals cannot be determined with any certainty once the raw ores are smelted, refined and converted to ingots, bullion or other Conflict Mineral containing derivatives.
Black Box maintains a system of internal controls to identify and trace Conflict Minerals usage within its supply chain. A summary of Black Box’s due diligence framework is outlined below.
Step 1: Establish strong company management systems
Internal Team
Black Box maintains a formal written Conflict Minerals policy that reflects its commitment to achieve a "DRC conflict free" determination over time. The Black Box Conflict Minerals policy is publicly available on its Internet website at http://files.shareholder.com/downloads/BBOX/4138123195x0x689929/14f448b3-3c5e-4d74-a865-e4e91c57f744/Conflict_Minerals_Policy_Statement.pdf and is reviewed annually or as conditions change.
Black Box maintains a governance process to oversee its Conflict Minerals Compliance Program that includes a Steering Committee and a Core Team. The Steering Committee's objective is to solicit the participation of the Company’s leadership to maintain the governance structure, which enables sustainable compliance and actively mitigates the risk of not meeting regulatory requirements. The activities of the Core Team include the maintenance, implementation and reporting of due diligence activities, compliance project plan, supplier communications and training, project status, the retention policy, in addition to the management of the RCOI process described in Step 3. The Company evaluates the composition of the Steering Committee and the Core Team annually or as conditions change. The Company supplements its internal resources with a third-party service provider who supports the RCOI and other due diligence matters.

Page 2 of 15



Control Systems
Black Box informally communicates its policy and the supplier’s responsibilities regarding Conflict Minerals to all existing and new suppliers to help support its due diligence efforts.
Supplier Engagement
The Company engages directly with suppliers to request CMRT information for the Covered Products. All non-responsive suppliers were contacted a minimum of three times.
The Company provides training related to Conflict Minerals for its suppliers of Covered Products in an effort to strengthen its engagement with suppliers. Such training is tracked and monitored through the Online Platform, we expect to continue to prioritize education around our due diligence program
Grievance Mechanisms
Black Box maintains a formal company level grievance mechanism to facilitate information from interested parties regarding Black Box’s sourcing strategy, use of Conflict Minerals within its supply chain, and alleged instances of non-compliance. Such grievance mechanism is available in our Conflict Minerals Policy, which is available on our internet website.
Records Maintenances
Black Box maintains records for at least five years relating to its Conflict Minerals program.
Step 2: Identify and assess risks in the supply chain
Black Box annually identifies its high-risk parts and suppliers using a risk-based approach to assess risk of Conflict Minerals in the supply chain.
Many of the supplier responses were submitted at a company level, rather than at a product-level. As a result, we were not able to identify which smelters or refiners listed on Appendix A actually processed the Conflict Minerals contained in our products. Therefore, our list of processing smelters and refiners disclosed in Appendix A likely contains more facilities than those that actually processed the Conflict Minerals contained in our products.
Black Box annually reviews and assesses summary smelter information to determine if the smelter is certified as conflict free or if supporting information presents a "red flag" as defined by the OECD Guidance. Black Box does not have a direct relationship with smelters/refiners, does not perform audits of these entities, and therefore relies upon information provided by the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative’s (“CFSI”) publicly available list of smelters/refiners that have been certified by CFSI as conflict free.
Step 3: Design and implement a strategy to respond to identified risks
The Core Team summarizes information gathered on the actual and potential risks identified in the supply chain risk assessment and communicates it to the Steering Committee on a periodic basis.
Additional fact finding, risk assessments, and changes in circumstances take place a part of the Black Box annual review of its Conflict Minerals program.
Step 4: Carry out independent third-party audit of smelter/refiner's due diligence practices
Black Box monitors, and encourages their suppliers to monitor industry wide Conflict Mineral activities including, but not limited to, results of smelter audits and incorporation of new smelters/refiners through the CFSI.
Given the nature of the Black Box business, its position in the supply chain, the associated cost and the current lack of transparency in the supply chain, Black Box is not in a position to audit smelters/refiners directly. Instead, we rely on third-party audits of smelters and refiners conducted as part of the CFSI Conflict-Free Smelter Program, which uses independent private sector auditors to audit the source, including the mines of origin, and the chain of custody of the conflict minerals used by smelters and refiners that agree to participate in the program.



Page 3 of 15



Step 5: Report annually on supply chain due diligence
Black Box annually reviews compliance-related results, summarizes such results on Form SD and the Conflict Minerals Report, files such report with the SEC in a timely manner and posts such report on our internet website at http://investor.blackbox.com/sec.cfm.
Steps Taken to Mitigate Risk and Improve Due Diligence
Black Box will continue to strengthen its Conflict Minerals Program and improve its due diligence efforts through increased focused efforts including:
Black Box plans to improve upon its supplier education and training efforts. The goal is to support and build capabilities of suppliers to improve performance and conform to our Conflict Minerals Policy.
Black Box plans to formally incorporate Conflict Minerals into its supplier onboarding program.
Black Box plans to develop and adopt a formal risk mitigation plan to reduce systematically the exposure to Conflict Minerals risk in its supply chain, which may include suspending or discontinuing supplier engagements.
Black Box plans to consider participating (and encouraging their suppliers to participate) in industry driven certification programs thereby allowing for joint spot checks (within an economically viable framework) of mineral smelter and refinery facilities.
Black Box plans to enhance the use of technology, such as the Online Platform, for improved tracking, evaluating and storing of information for our Covered Products.
Black Box plans to incorporate its conflict minerals policy into long-term contractual obligations with new suppliers.
Black Box plans to implement formal record retention guidelines for its Conflict Minerals program.
Results of Due Diligence Survey Results
During the 2016 Compliance Period, the Company had a supplier response rate to its conflict minerals survey of 77%.
See Appendix A for smelters and refiners that were obtained via CMRT responses from our suppliers. The supplier responses included Conflict Free, Known and Unknown smelters, but based on the absence of reliable information on the Unknown smelters, only the Conflict Free and Known smelters have been included. Since many of the supplier responses were at the company level, rather than at a product-level, we are not able to identify which smelters or refiners listed on Appendix A actually processed the Conflict Minerals contained in our products. Therefore, our list of processing smelters and refiners disclosed in Appendix A is likely to contain more facilities than those that actually processed the Conflict Minerals contained in our products.
