Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure
Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report
In accordance with the disclosure requirements promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, we have undertaken efforts to determine our conflict minerals1 reporting requirements for the period from January 1 to December 31, 2014.

We have determined that during 2014 our company manufactured (or contracted to manufacture) products as to which conflict minerals are necessary to the functionality or production of such products. As is required, we have conducted a good faith reasonable country of origin inquiry ("RCOI") reasonably designed to determine whether the necessary conflict minerals originated in the DRC or an adjoining country or came from recycled or scrap sources. 
Astec's RCOI process included conducting an inquiry of our direct suppliers using the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative's Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. We relied upon our suppliers' representations regarding the origin of their minerals and their smelter data to determine the source of the conflict minerals within our supply chain. Based on the results of our RCOI, we exercised due diligence on the source and chain of custody of the conflict minerals. 
The Company has filed this Specialized Disclosure Form and the associated Conflict Minerals Report, which appears as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and is publicly available on the Company's website at http://www.astecindustries.com/.

Item 1.02 Exhibit
The Company's Conflict Minerals Report is provided as Exhibit 1.01 hereto.
