Check the appropriate box to indicate the rule pursuant to which this form is being filed, and provide the period to which the information in this form applies:
Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act (17 CFR 240.13p-1) for the reporting period from January 1 to December 31, 2016.
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
After performing the steps required by Rule 13p-1, BorgWarner Inc. ("BorgWarner" or the "Company") has no information that tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold ("3TG") necessary to the functionality or production of its products financed or benefited armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ("DRC") or an adjoining country that shares an internationally recognized border with the DRC (the "Conflict Region").
On November 10, 2015, BorgWarner completed the acquisition of Remy International Inc. ("Remy"), a Delaware corporation and formerly publicly traded company listed on NASDAQ. Remy was previously obligated to file a Form SD and report concerning its use of 3TG. The Company incorporated a discussion of Remy’s 2015 processes in its Conflict Minerals Report filed for the period January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015. That discussion covered (i) Remy USA Industries, L.L.C., which acquired substantially all of the assets of United Starters and Alternators Industries, Inc. on January 13, 2014; and (ii) Maval Industries, L.L.C. (“Maval”), which acquired substantially all of the assets of Maval Manufacturing, Inc. on March 1, 2015.
During 2016, BorgWarner sold certain former Remy businesses including the light vehicle aftermarket business and Maval. The business and assets acquired from United Starters and Alternators Industries, Inc. ceased operating in 2016. Those businesses are therefore not covered by this report. The original equipment and heavy duty aftermarket businesses of Remy now owned by BorgWarner were incorporated in BorgWarner's Conflict Minerals processes during 2016.
