Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure
 
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
 
This Specialized Disclosure Report on Form SD (“Form SD”) of La-Z-Boy Incorporated (“La-Z-Boy”) is presented to comply with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, (“Rule”) for the reporting period January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. The Rule was adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals” as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (“Dodd-Frank Act”). Conflict minerals are defined by the SEC as columbite-tantalite (coltan), cassiterite, gold, wolframite, including their derivatives, which are limited to tantalum, tin, and tungsten (“3TG”). The Rule imposes certain reporting obligations on SEC registrants whose products contain conflict minerals that are necessary to the functionality or production of their products. For products which contain necessary conflict minerals, the registrant must conduct in good faith a reasonable country of origin inquiry designed to determine whether any of the conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) or “adjoining country” (as defined in Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act), collectively defined as the “Covered Countries.” If, based on such inquiry, the registrant knows or has reason to believe that any of the necessary conflict minerals contained in its products originated or may have originated in a Covered Country and knows or has reason to believe that those necessary conflict minerals may not be solely from recycled or scrap sources, the registrant must conduct due diligence as a method to conclude if the necessary conflict minerals contained in those products did or did not directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries. These requirements apply to registrants whatever the geographic origin of the conflict minerals and whether or not they fund armed conflict.

After performing a reasonable country of origin inquiry as required by the Rule, La-Z-Boy was unable to determine in good faith whether 3TGs used during calendar year 2021 in one or more of our products was solely from recycled or scrap sources or originated from a Covered Country. As a result, La-Z-Boy is filing a Conflict Minerals Report as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD.
