Rogers Comments on U.S. Department of Commerce Entity List Designation of Huawei and Affiliates


(NYSE:ROG) today commented that it has evaluated the
recently issued U.S. Department of Commerce export control restrictions
relating to Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. and its affiliates
(collectively, "Huawei") and is implementing additional compliance
processes for sales to Huawei's fabricators and converters, which are
Rogers' direct customers. However, because of the uncertain impact of
the new restrictions on Huawei's global supply chain, it is unclear how
demand for Rogers' products may be affected. Accordingly, the Company is
unable to determine what impact, if any, this may have on its financial
performance for the second quarter of 2019. The Company will continue to
monitor these developments and seek to maintain compliance with
applicable laws.
