NxStage Medical, Inc.
Conflict Minerals Report
Reporting Year: 2016

This report has been prepared pursuant to Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Rule 13p-1), for the reporting period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016, and is available at the Investor Relations section of our website,  www.nxstage.com .

Company Overview

NxStage Medical, Inc. (NxStage or we) is a medical technology company that develops, manufactures and markets innovative products and services for patients suffering from chronic or acute kidney failure. Our primary product, the System One, was designed to satisfy an unmet clinical need for a system capable of delivering the therapeutic flexibility and clinical benefits of traditional dialysis machines in a smaller, portable, easy-to-use form that can be used by healthcare professionals and trained lay users alike in a variety of settings, including patient homes, as well as more traditional care settings such as hospitals and dialysis centers. Given its design, the System One is particularly well-suited for home hemodialysis and a range of dialysis therapies that are more practical to deliver in the home setting, including more frequent hemodialysis and nocturnal hemodialysis. Clinical literature suggests such therapies provide patients better clinical outcomes and improved quality of life. We also operate a small number of NxStage Kidney Care dialysis centers, independently and in some instances as joint ventures, that treat end-stage renal disease patients directly. These centers provide us with valuable experience to better meet and anticipate the needs of both our customers and patients, while optimizing our product technology. We are headquartered in Lawrence, Massachusetts, with manufacturing facilities in Mexico, Germany and Italy. Through our international network of affiliates and distribution partners, patients in over 21 countries have been treated with our products.

Certain of our products, including the System One, are assembled using parts containing tantalum, tin, tungsten or gold (3TG). NxStage is not a vertically integrated manufacturer and instead we make our products using components that are obtained from either contract manufacturers or original equipment manufacturers. Furthermore, our supply chain is both global and complex, and there are multiple tiers of suppliers between NxStage and the original sources of minerals used in our products. NxStage does not make purchases of raw ore or unrefined 3TG and makes no purchases in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively, DRC). Accordingly, we rely on our direct suppliers to provide information on the origin of the 3TG contained in the parts supplied to us.

NxStage is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, integrity and environmental responsibility. These principles for the responsible sourcing of raw materials and components are set forth in our Conflict Minerals Policy Statement, which is available at the Investor Relations section of our website,  www.nxstage.com .

Due Diligence Process

NxStage conducted a due diligence process to identify which of our products contained 3TG (3TG products) as well as a reasonable country of origin inquiry to determine whether such 3TG products contained 3TG that originated in the DRC or came from recycled or scrap sources. Based on the results of our reasonable country of origin inquiry, we were unable to conclude that the 3TG in our 3TG products did not originate in the DRC or that all of such 3TG came from recycled or scrap sources.

We designed our due diligence framework on the source and chain of custody of the 3TG in our 3TG products to conform in all material respects with the framework provided by The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, an internationally-recognized due diligence framework. As part of our process, we contacted each supplier of components and materials potentially containing 3TG (described on Exhibit A to this report) and asked





them to complete the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition Global e-Sustainability Initiative (EICC-GeSI) Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. This 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 supplier’s conflict-free policy, engagement with its direct suppliers, and a listing of the smelters the supplier and its suppliers use. The template also contains questions about the origin of 3TG included in their products, as well as supplier due diligence.

Each supplier’s response was evaluated and, where possible, validated to determine sufficiency, accuracy or completeness of its response. For each supplier’s response, we subsequently assessed whether the 3TG identified, or 3TG that may not have been identified, was consistent with the nature and characteristics of the supplied part. For each response that was insufficient, potentially inaccurate or incomplete, we contacted that supplier to gain additional information and to receive revised responses as necessary.

Due Diligence Results

As of May 31, 2017, we have received responses from approximately 77% of the suppliers surveyed. Many of our suppliers responded with company-wide information that was not specific to our products. As a result, their responses may cover facilities that do not provide 3TG for our 3TG products. Due to the many company-wide responses and the multiple levels of suppliers in our supply chain, we are unable to determine with certainty at this time which processing facilities and countries of origin listed in our suppliers' responses actually provide the specific 3TG used in our 3TG products. The facilities identified by our suppliers that may have been used to process 3TG for our 3TG products and the potential countries of origin of such 3TG are set forth on Exhibit B and Exhibit C , respectively, to this report.

Of the responding suppliers that reported the presence of 3TG in their components, a majority indicated that such 3TG did not originate from the DRC, four indicated that such 3TG originated from conflict-free sources within the DRC, three indicated that such 3TG may have originated within the DRC (without indicating the specific country of origin) and were unable to ensure that such 3TG originated from conflict-free sources, and nine indicated that they were unable to determine whether such 3TG originated from the DRC.

Based on the results of our due diligence efforts and reasonable country of origin inquiry, we are unable to determine that any 3TG from the DRC that is used by our suppliers originates entirely from validated conflict-free sources.

Risk Mitigation

We expect to take the following steps, among others, to continue our due diligence measures and to mitigate the risk that any 3TG contained in our products benefit or finance armed groups in the DRC:

We will continue to work with suppliers who provided incomplete or insufficient information in an effort to obtain complete and accurate information in 2017.
We will again follow our due diligence process to review and validate supplier responses that are obtained in support of our 2017 conflict minerals reporting.
We will help our suppliers to understand the due diligence steps they can take to investigate the source of any 3TG in the products they supply us.
We will inform our suppliers about the principles set forth in our Conflict Minerals Policy Statement.
