Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Teradyne, Inc. (“Teradyne” or the “Company”) has determined that gold, columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite and wolframite, including their derivatives, tantalum, tin and tungsten (“Conflict Minerals”), are necessary to the functionality or production of products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by Teradyne.

We conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry regarding the Conflict Minerals in our products which was designed to determine whether any of the Conflict Minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (“Covered Countries”), or are from recycled or scrap sources.

We conducted a supply-chain survey with all direct suppliers using the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template from the Conflict Free Sourcing Initiative (“CFSI”). We asked suppliers to determine if Conflict Minerals were necessary to the functionality of their products provided to Teradyne and, if yes, to provide information regarding the smelters/refiners/mines for the Conflict Minerals included in those products. A number of our suppliers responded that their products included Conflict Minerals that originated in the Covered Countries.

Based on our reasonable country of origin inquiry, we know or have reason to believe that some of the Conflict Minerals in our products originated in the Covered Countries and are not from recycled or scrap sources.

As a result of our reasonable country of origin inquiry, we engaged in due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the Conflict Minerals in our products that originated or may have originated from the Covered Countries. We have filed a Conflict Minerals Report, describing our reasonable country of origin inquiry and due diligence efforts, as an exhibit to this specialized disclosure report. We have provided that report on the Corporate Governance/Code of Conduct and Corporate Social Responsibility page on our publicly available website at
