On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act went into
effect in the State of California. Under the Act, certain manufacturers and
retailers are required to disclose their efforts to combat human trafficking
and slavery in the products within their supply chains. The following
disclosure is made in accordance with the requirements of the Act.
Royal Automotive Group and its dealership subsidiaries do not support or
condone human trafficking or slavery. As franchised automotive retailers, Royal
Automotive Group and its dealerships believe that our franchisor partners are
in the best position to audit their respective supply chains to address this
important issue. As a result, Royal Automotive Group and its dealerships rely
on the efforts of our franchisor partners with respect to the supply chain for
vehicles and parts sold in California. Royal Automotive Group and its
dealerships do not independently verify or audit our manufacturers' supply
chains, require our manufacturers to certify that parts and materials comply
with slavery or human trafficking laws, maintain internal accountability
standards, or provide employee training on the prevention of human trafficking.
