Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Items 1.01 and 1.02 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report, Exhibit
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (the “Registrant”), has determined that substantially all of its products contain components likely to contain conflict minerals. The Registrant performed a reasonable country of origin inquiry and concluded that a portion of its necessary conflict minerals may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country. The Registrant knows or has reason to believe that those necessary conflict minerals may not be from recycled or scrap sources. As such, the Registrant proceeded to exercise due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals.
The Registrant has prepared a Conflict Minerals Report, which is attached as Exhibit 1.01 to this Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD. This Conflict Minerals Report includes a discussion of the due diligence procedures performed, the Registrant’s determinations regarding the source and chain of custody of its conflict minerals, and the other disclosures required pursuant to Rule 13p-1 and Form SD under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Registrant has disclosed the information above, along with a copy of its Conflict Minerals Report and related materials, on its website, http://www.skyworksinc.com/SustainabilityReporting.aspx.

Exhibit 1.01
Skyworks Solutions, Inc.

Conflict Minerals Report
For the Calendar Year Ended December 31, 2018
Background
This report for the year ended December 31, 2018, is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Conflict Minerals Rule”). The Conflict Minerals Rule was adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to implement due diligence and disclosure requirements related to conflict minerals as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the “Dodd-Frank Act”). The Conflict Minerals Rule imposes these due diligence and disclosure requirements on companies that file public reports with the SEC and whose manufactured products contain conflict minerals that are necessary to the functionality or production of the products. Conflict minerals are defined as cassiterite, columbite-tantalite (coltan), gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum, and tungsten (“3TG”). These requirements apply to reporting companies whatever the geographic origin of the conflict minerals and whether or not they fund armed conflict.
If a registrant has reason to believe that any of the conflict minerals in the registrant’s supply chain may have originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (the “Covered Countries”) (or if the registrant is unable to determine the country of origin of those conflict minerals) and did not originate from recycled or scrap sources, then the issuer must exercise due diligence on the conflict minerals’ source and chain of custody. The registrant must submit a Conflict Minerals Report (the “CMR”) to the SEC that includes a description of those due diligence measures.
Overview
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (herein referred to as “Skyworks,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), is empowering the wireless networking revolution. Our highly innovative analog semiconductors are connecting people, places and things spanning a number of new and previously unimagined applications within the aerospace, automotive, broadband, cellular infrastructure, connected home, industrial, medical, military, smartphone, tablet and wearable markets.
We conducted an analysis of our products, including both products that we manufacture and products that we contract for manufacture, and found that substantially all of these products contain components considered likely to contain 3TG. As a member of the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI member I.D. SWKS), we utilize the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) to survey our supply chain and identify the smelters/refiners in our supply chain. As part of our supplier survey process, we identify materials sourcing locations (countries of origin) using resources available to RMI members. Based on the information obtained through our supply chain survey activities of our suppliers whose materials or components contain 3TG, Skyworks

1



has concluded that certain of our products contain 3TG that originated, or may have originated, in the Covered Countries and that is not from recycled or scrap sources.
Skyworks believes our reasonable country of origin inquiry and process was reasonably designed and performed in good faith. We publicly communicate our Conflict Minerals Policy via our website at www.skyworksinc.com. The content of any website referred to in this Report is included for general information only and is not incorporated by reference in this Report.
This CMR describes the due diligence we have performed with respect to the source and chain of custody of our conflict minerals.
Design of Due Diligence Measures Taken
Skyworks has designed its due diligence measures to be in conformity, in all material respects, with the internationally recognized due diligence framework in the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas: Third Edition.
Due Diligence Performed by Skyworks
Skyworks relies on its suppliers to provide information on the origin of the 3TG minerals. Skyworks’ due diligence measures undertaken in calendar year 2018 included, but were not limited to, comparing all smelters and refiners identified via the supply chain survey against the lists of smelters / refiners designated as audited and conformant to the Responsible Minerals Initiative’s (RMI’s) Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) (any such listed smelter / refiner designated as “RMAP-Conformant”).
Skyworks identified 63 in-scope suppliers providing us with 3TG or products containing 3TG that were used in Skyworks’ finished good devices for sale. Skyworks confirmed that all 63 identified suppliers provided disclosures of smelters / refiners in their respective supply chains. These disclosures from each supplier indicated that all smelters / refiners were identified and reported to Skyworks. Further, Skyworks confirmed via the due diligence process described above that all smelters / refiners reported were RMAP-Conformant.
Determination for Calendar Year 2018
On the basis of our due diligence measures as described in this CMR, we have determined in good faith, and to the best of our knowledge, that our products were DRC Conflict Free for 2018. In this regard, and as disclosed, we had a 100% 3TG supplier response rate, and our data results indicated our smelter / refiner supply chain as 100% RMAP-Conformant. The facilities the Company believes to be used to process the Company’s necessary conflict minerals include the smelters and refiners listed in Annex A. Countries of origin, to the best of our knowledge, are listed in Annex B.
In light of our position in the supply chain, our due diligence measures can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance regarding the source and chain of custody of the necessary conflict minerals in our products. We rely on our direct suppliers to provide us with information in this regard, and those suppliers, in turn, generally must seek similar information from within their supply chains to identify the original

2



sources of the necessary conflict minerals. We also rely, to a significant extent, on information collected and provided by independent third party audit programs. Such sources of information may yield inaccurate or incomplete information and may be subject to fraud.
Independent Private Sector Audit
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. engaged Elm Sustainability Partners LLC to conduct an independent private sector audit of this CMR for the 2018 reporting period. Refer to the audit report attached as Annex C to this CMR.

INDEPENDENT PRIVATE SECTOR AUDITOR’S REPORT

To the Board of Directors:

elm sustainability partners llc conducted an Independent Private Sector Audit (IPSA) of the Skyworks Solutions, Inc., (“the Company”) Conflict Minerals Report for the reporting period of January 1 to December 31, 2018. We examined evidence relating to the audit objectives set forth in 17 CFR Part 249b.400, Section 1, Item 1.01, which state that the auditor is to express an opinion or conclusion as to:

whether the design of the Company’s due diligence framework as set forth in the Conflict Minerals Report for reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2018, is in conformity, in all material respects, with the criteria set forth in the Organisation of Economic Co-Operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, Third Edition 2016 (“OECD Due Diligence Guidance”), and

whether the Company’s description of the due diligence measures it performed, as set forth in the Conflict Minerals Report for the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2018, is consistent with the due diligence process that the Company undertook.

Management is responsible for the design of the Company’s due diligence framework, the description of the Company’s due diligence measures set forth in the Conflict Minerals Report, and performance of the due diligence measures. Our responsibility is to express an opinion or conclusion in relation to the stated audit objectives. The mandated audit objectives and our examination did not include evaluating:

The consistency of the due diligence measures that the Company performed with either the design of the Company’s due diligence framework or the OECD Due Diligence Guidance;
The completeness of the Company’s description of the due diligence measures performed;
The suitability of the design or operating effectiveness of the Company’s due diligence process;
Whether a third party can determine from the Conflict Minerals Report if the due diligence measures the Company performed are consistent with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance;
The Company’s reasonable country of origin inquiry (RCOI), including the suitability of the design of the RCOI, its operating effectiveness, or the results thereof;
The adequacy or completeness of the Company’s applicability determinations of parts, components, materials or products used, sold, manufactured by or for the Company;

11



The Company’s conclusions about the source or chain of custody of its conflict minerals or the DRC Conflict Free status of parts, components, materials or products used, sold, manufactured by or for the Company; or
The operational status during the reporting period of any disclosed smelter or refiner.

We do not express an opinion or offer any other form of conclusion or assurance on those or any other matters in any section of the Conflict Minerals Report other than the sections titled Design of Due Diligence Measures Taken and Due Diligence Performed by Skyworks.
Audit planning began March 28, 2019 and on-site activities were conducted April 18, 2019. No impairments or threats to our independence as an auditor were identified prior to, during or after this audit. As the basis for this audit, the Company provided the Conflict Minerals Report that was current on April 18, 2019. For the first audit objective, we reviewed the following audit evidence and compared it to the OECD Due Diligence Guidance: (a) detailed conflict minerals program documentation relating to each of the five steps, (b) evidence of data management, program execution and controls, and (c) interviews with the individual directly involved in executing the conflict minerals program; thereby providing reasonable assurance that the design of the due diligence framework described in the section of the Conflict Minerals Report titled Design of Due Diligence Measures Taken is in conformity with, in all material respects, the OECD Due Diligence Guidance. For the second audit objective, we reviewed 100% of the information provided by the Company documenting that it undertook the due diligence measures described in the section of the Conflict Minerals Report titled Due Diligence Performed by Skyworks. We also conducted interviews with the individual directly involved in performing those due diligence measures. The auditor and internal quality control reviewer are senior level Principals that hold certifications from the Board of Environmental Auditor Certifications, an independent accredited certification body that requires conformance to established ethics, independence requirements and annual continuing education. The original auditor’s notes were evaluated by the internal quality control reviewer to confirm that the audit work performed and evidence obtained supports the findings or conclusions in this audit report. Additional information on our firm’s audit quality assurance practices and the external Peer Review report on our conformance to the generally accepted government auditing standards (“Yellow Book”) Performance Audit standards is available on our website.
Management was provided an opportunity to review and offer comments on a draft of this report and had no comments to the draft report.
