SECTION 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure

Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report.

DXP Enterprises, Inc. has included its Conflict Minerals Report ("Report") as an exhibit to its Form SD for the period from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. Unless the context otherwise indicates, "DXP," "we," "us" and "our" refer to DXP Enterprises, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.

During 2017, certain of our operations manufactured, or contracted to manufacture, products for which 3TGs, as defined below, are necessary to their functionality or production ("Covered Products"). Conflict minerals are defined in Section 13(p) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as (A) cassiterite, columbite-tantalite (coltan), gold, wolframite, and their derivatives, which are limited to tin, tantalum and tungsten (together with gold collectively referred to as 3TGs), or (B) any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the Secretary of State to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo ("DRC") or any adjoining country that shares an internationally recognized border with the DRC. Accordingly, we have conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry ("RCOI") that was designed to determine whether any of the 3TGs in our Covered Products originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (Angola, Burundi, the Central African Republic, the Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda or Zambia), or were from recycled or scrap sources.

A summary of our RCOI and steps of due diligence on the source and chain of custody of any 3TGs in our Covered Products, is included in our Report, which is filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD. In addition to this, our Report and Form SD is publicly available on our website at: www.dxpe.com within the "Investor Relations" section under "Financial Information" > "SEC Filings".
