Item 1.01.    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On November 30, 2020, Concentrix Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Separation and Distribution Agreement (the “Separation and Distribution Agreement”) with SYNNEX Corporation, pursuant to which SYNNEX agreed to separate the Company and its technology-infused customer experience solutions business from SYNNEX (the “Separation”) and distribute all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock to SYNNEX stockholders in a tax-free distribution (the “Distribution” and, together with the Separation, the “Spin-off”). The Distribution was effective at 12:01 a.m., Eastern Time, on December 1, 2020 (the “Effective Time”). SYNNEX stockholders received one share of the Company’s common stock for each share of SYNNEX common stock held as of the close of business on November 17, 2020. As a result of the Distribution, Concentrix is now an independent public company and its common stock is listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the symbol “CNXC.”
In addition to the Separation and Distribution Agreement, the Company, SYNNEX and certain of their respective subsidiaries also entered in several other agreements that set forth the principal actions taken or to be taken in connection with the spin-off and that govern the relationship of the parties following the Spin-Off, including the following:
•    Tax Matters Agreement, dated November 30, 2020;

provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, the Parties agree that (A) the Liabilities set forth in Section 2.3(b) shall not be Concentrix Liabilities but instead shall be SYNNEX Liabilities.
(b)SYNNEX Liabilities. For the purposes of this Agreement, “SYNNEX Liabilities” shall mean the all Liabilities of either Party or the members of its Group as of the Effective Time, other than the Concentrix Liabilities. For the avoidance of doubt, SYNNEX Liabilities shall include (i) the portion of any Shared Contingent Liabilities that are not Concentrix Liabilities and (ii) any Liabilities relating to, arising out of or resulting from any Action with respect to the Separation or the Distribution (other than any Action related to any Disclosure Document) made or brought by any Third Party against either Party or any member of its Group.

If any transfer or assignment of any Concentrix Asset or any assumption of any Concentrix Liability intended to be transferred, assigned or assumed hereunder, as the case may be, is not consummated on or prior to the Effective Time, whether as a result of the provisions of Section 2.4(b) or for any other reason (any such Concentrix Asset, a “Delayed Concentrix Asset” and any such Concentrix Liability, a “Delayed Concentrix Liability”), then, insofar as reasonably possible and subject to applicable Law, the member of the SYNNEX Group retaining such Delayed Concentrix Asset or such Delayed Concentrix Liability, as the case may be, shall thereafter hold such Delayed Concentrix Asset or Delayed Concentrix Liability, as the case may be, for the use and benefit (or the performance and obligation, in the case of a Liability) of the member of the Concentrix Group entitled thereto (at the expense of the member of the Concentrix Group entitled thereto). In addition, the member of the SYNNEX Group retaining such Delayed Concentrix Asset or such Delayed Concentrix Liability shall, insofar as reasonably possible and to the extent permitted by applicable Law, treat such Delayed Concentrix Asset or Delayed Concentrix Liability in the ordinary course of business in accordance with past practice and take such other actions as may be reasonably requested by the member of the Concentrix Group to whom such Delayed Concentrix Asset is to be transferred or assigned, or which will assume such Delayed Concentrix Liability, as the case may be, in order to place such member of the Concentrix Group in a substantially similar position as if such Delayed Concentrix Asset or Delayed Concentrix Liability had been transferred, assigned or assumed as contemplated hereby and so that all the benefits and burdens relating to such Delayed Concentrix Asset or Delayed Concentrix Liability, as the case may be, including use, risk of loss, potential for gain, and dominion, control and command over such Delayed Concentrix Asset or Delayed Concentrix Liability, as the case may be, and all costs and expenses related thereto, shall inure from and after the Effective Time to the Concentrix Group.

(d)Transfer of Delayed Concentrix Assets and Delayed Concentrix Liabilities.

21


the expense of the member of the SYNNEX Group entitled thereto). In addition, the member of the Concentrix Group retaining such Delayed SYNNEX Asset or such Delayed SYNNEX Liability shall, insofar as reasonably possible and to the extent permitted by applicable Law, treat such Delayed SYNNEX Asset or Delayed SYNNEX Liability in the ordinary course of business in accordance with past practice. Such member of the Concentrix Group shall also take such other actions as may be reasonably requested by the member of the SYNNEX Group to which such Delayed SYNNEX Asset is to be transferred or assigned, or which will assume such Delayed SYNNEX Liability, as the case may be, in order to place such member of the SYNNEX Group in a substantially similar position as if such Delayed SYNNEX Asset or Delayed SYNNEX Liability had been transferred, assigned or assumed and so that all the benefits and burdens relating to such Delayed SYNNEX Asset or Delayed SYNNEX Liability, and all costs and expenses related thereto, shall inure from and after the Effective Time to the SYNNEX Group.

Any determination made by the SYNNEX Board prior to the Distribution concerning the satisfaction or waiver of any or all of the conditions set forth in Section 3.3(a) shall be conclusive and binding on the Parties.

Nothing contained in Sections 4.1(a) or 4.1(b) shall release any Person from:

(vi)any Liability that the Parties may have with respect to indemnification or contribution pursuant to this Agreement, any Ancillary Agreement or otherwise for claims brought against the Parties by third Persons, which Liability shall be governed by the provisions of this Article IV and Article V and, if applicable, the appropriate provisions of the Ancillary Agreements; or

(vii)any Liability the release of which would result in the release of any Person other than a Person released pursuant to this Section 4.1.

34


In addition, nothing contained in Section 4.1(a) shall release any member of the SYNNEX Group from honoring its existing obligations to indemnify any director, officer or employee of Concentrix who was a director, officer or employee of any member of the SYNNEX Group on or prior to the Effective Time, to the extent such director, officer or employee becomes a named defendant in any Action with respect to which such director, officer or employee was entitled to such indemnification pursuant to such existing obligations, it being understood that, if the underlying obligation giving rise to such Action is a Concentrix Liability, Concentrix shall indemnify SYNNEX for such Liability (including SYNNEX’s costs to indemnify the director, officer or employee) in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Article IV.
(d)No Claims. Concentrix shall not make, and shall not permit any other member of the Concentrix Group to make, any claim or demand, or commence any Action asserting any claim or demand, including any claim of contribution or any indemnification, against SYNNEX or any other member of the SYNNEX Group, or any other Person released pursuant to Section 4.1(a), with respect to any Liabilities released pursuant to Section 4.1(a). SYNNEX shall not make, and shall not permit any other member of the SYNNEX Group to make, any claim or demand, or commence any Action asserting any claim or demand, including any claim of contribution or any indemnification against Concentrix or any other member of the Concentrix Group, or any other Person released pursuant to Section 4.1(b), with respect to any Liabilities released pursuant to Section 4.1(b).

Except as otherwise specifically set forth in this Agreement or in any Ancillary Agreement, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, Concentrix shall, and shall cause the other members of the Concentrix Group to, indemnify, defend and hold harmless SYNNEX, each member of the SYNNEX Group and each of their respective past, present and future directors, officers, employees and agents, in each case in their respective capacities as such, and each of the heirs, executors, successors and assigns of any of the foregoing (collectively, the “SYNNEX Indemnified Parties”), from and against any and all Liabilities of the SYNNEX Indemnified Parties relating to, arising out of or resulting from, directly or indirectly, any of the following items (without duplication):
(a)any Concentrix Liability;
(b)any failure of Concentrix, any other member of the Concentrix Group or any other Person to pay, perform or otherwise promptly discharge any Concentrix Liabilities in accordance with their terms, whether prior to, on or after the Effective Time;

(c)fifty percent (50%) of the Shared Contingent Liabilities;
35


(d)any breach by Concentrix or any other member of the Concentrix Group of this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements (other than the Ancillary Agreements set forth on Schedule 4.2(d), which shall be subject to the indemnification provisions contained therein);

(e)except to the extent it relates to an SYNNEX Liability, any guarantee, indemnification or contribution obligation, surety bond or other credit support agreement, arrangement, commitment or understanding for the benefit of any member of the Concentrix Group by any member of the SYNNEX Group that survives following the Distribution; and

(f)any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, with respect to all information contained in the Form 10, the Information Statement (as amended or supplemented if Concentrix shall have furnished to SYNNEX any amendments or supplements thereto) or any other Disclosure Document that is filed with the SEC or otherwise disclosed publicly prior to the Distribution Date, other than the matters described in clause (f) of Section 4.3.

4.3.Indemnification by SYNNEX. Except as otherwise specifically set forth in this Agreement or in any Ancillary Agreement, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, SYNNEX shall, and shall cause the other members of the SYNNEX Group to, indemnify, defend and hold harmless Concentrix, each member of the Concentrix Group and each of their respective past, present and future directors, officers, employees or agents, in each case in their respective capacities as such, and each of the heirs, executors, successors and assigns of any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Concentrix Indemnified Parties”), from and against any and all Liabilities of the Concentrix Indemnified Parties relating to, arising out of or resulting from, directly or indirectly, any of the following items (without duplication):
(a)any SYNNEX Liability;
(b)any failure of SYNNEX, any other member of the SYNNEX Group or any other Person to pay, perform or otherwise promptly discharge any SYNNEX Liabilities in accordance with their terms, whether prior to, on or after the Effective Time;

(c)fifty percent (50%) of the Shared Contingent Liabilities;

(d)any breach by SYNNEX or any other member of the SYNNEX Group of this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements (other than the Ancillary Agreements set forth on Schedule 4.2(d), which shall be subject to the indemnification provisions contained therein);

(e)except to the extent it relates to a Concentrix Liability, any guarantee, indemnification or contribution obligation, surety bond or other credit support agreement, arrangement, commitment or understanding for the benefit of any member of the SYNNEX Group by any member of the Concentrix Group that survives following the Distribution; and

36


(f)any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, with respect to statements made explicitly in SYNNEX’s name in the Form 10, the Information Statement (as amended or supplemented if Concentrix shall have furnished to SYNNEX any amendments or supplements thereto) or any other Disclosure Document; it being agreed that the only statements considered to be made explicitly in SYNNEX’s name in the Form 10, the Information Statement or any other Disclosure Document shall be the statements set forth on Schedule 4.3(f), and all other information contained in the Form 10, the Information Statement or any other Disclosure Document that is filed with the SEC or otherwise disclosed publicly prior to the Distribution Date shall be deemed to be information supplied by Concentrix.

4.4.Indemnification Obligations Net of Insurance Proceeds and Other Amounts.
(a)The Parties intend that any Liability subject to indemnification, contribution or reimbursement pursuant to this Article IV or Article V will be net of Insurance Proceeds or other amounts actually recovered (net of any out-of-pocket costs or expenses incurred in the collection thereof) from any Person by or on behalf of the Indemnified Party in respect of such indemnifiable Liability. Accordingly, the amount that either Party (an “Indemnifying Party”) is required to pay to any Person entitled to indemnification or contribution hereunder (an “Indemnified Party”) will be reduced by any Insurance Proceeds or other amounts actually recovered (net of any out-of-pocket costs or expenses incurred in the collection thereof) from any Person by or on behalf of the Indemnified Party in respect of the related Liability. If an Indemnified Party receives a payment (an “Indemnity Payment”) under this Agreement from an Indemnifying Party in respect of any Liability and subsequently receives Insurance Proceeds or any other amounts in respect of the same Liability, then the Indemnified Party will pay to the Indemnifying Party an amount equal to the excess of the Indemnity Payment received over the amount of the Indemnity Payment that would have been due if the Insurance Proceeds or such other amounts (net of any out-of-pocket costs or expenses incurred in the collection thereof) had been received, realized or recovered before the Indemnity Payment was made.
(b)The Parties agree that an insurer that would otherwise be obligated to pay any claim shall not be relieved of the responsibility with respect thereto or, solely by virtue of any provision contained in this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, have any subrogation rights with respect thereto, it being understood that no insurer or any other Third Party shall be entitled to a “windfall” (i.e., a benefit they would not be entitled to receive in the absence of the indemnification provisions) by virtue of the liability allocation, indemnification and contribution provisions hereof. Accordingly, any provision herein that could have the result of giving any insurer or other Third Party such a “windfall” shall be suspended or amended to the extent necessary to not provide such “windfall.” Each Party shall, and shall cause the members of its Group to, use commercially reasonable efforts (taking into account the probability of success on the merits and the cost of expending such efforts, including attorneys’ fees and expenses) to collect or recover any Insurance Proceeds that may be collectible or recoverable respecting the Liabilities for which indemnification or contribution may be available under this Article IV. Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Indemnifying Party may not delay making any
37


indemnification payment required under the terms of this Agreement, or otherwise satisfying any indemnification obligation, pending the outcome of any Action to collect or recover Insurance Proceeds, and an Indemnified Party need not attempt to collect any Insurance Proceeds prior to making a claim for indemnification or contribution or receiving any Indemnity Payment otherwise owed to it under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement.

4.5.Procedures for Indemnification of Third-Party Claims.
(a)Notice of Claims. If, at or following the date of this Agreement, an Indemnified Party shall receive notice or otherwise learn of the assertion by a Person (including any Governmental Authority) who is not a member of the SYNNEX Group or the Concentrix Group of any claim or of the commencement by any such Person of any Action (collectively, a “Third-Party Claim”) with respect to which an Indemnifying Party may be obligated to provide indemnification to such Indemnified Party pursuant to Sections 4.2 or 4.3, or any other Section of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, such Indemnified Party shall give such Indemnifying Party written notice thereof as soon as practicable, but in any event within thirty (30) days of becoming aware of such Third-Party Claim (or sooner if the nature of the Third-Party Claim so requires). Any such notice shall include copies of all notices and documents (including court papers) received by the Indemnified Party relating to the Third-Party Claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the failure of an Indemnified Party to provide notice in accordance with this Section 4.5(a) shall not relieve an Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations under this Agreement, except to the extent to which the Indemnifying Party is actually prejudiced by the Indemnified Party’s failure to provide notice in accordance with this Section 4.5(a).
(b)Control of Defense. An Indemnifying Party may elect to control the defense of (and unless the Indemnifying Party has specified any reservations or exceptions, seek to settle or compromise), at its own expense and with its own counsel, any Third-Party Claim; provided, that, prior to the Indemnifying Party assuming and controlling defense of such Third-Party Claim, it shall first confirm to the Indemnified Party in writing that, assuming the facts presented to the Indemnifying Party by the Indemnified Party being true, the Indemnifying Party shall indemnify the Indemnified Party for any such Damages to the extent resulting from, or arising out of, such Third-Party-Claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Indemnifying Party assumes such defense and, in the course of defending such Third-Party Claim, (i) the Indemnifying Party discovers that the facts presented at the time the Indemnifying Party acknowledged its indemnification obligation in respect of such Third-Party Claim were not true in all material respects or that such facts, while true in all material respects, do not form the basis upon which such Third-Party Claim is predicated (e.g., as a result of the allegations made in such Third-Party Claim changing over time) and (ii) such untruth or change provides a reasonable basis for asserting that the Indemnifying Party does not have an indemnification obligation in respect of such Third-Party Claim, then (A) the Indemnifying Party shall not be bound by such acknowledgment, (B) the Indemnifying Party shall promptly thereafter provide the Indemnified Party written notice of its assertion that it does not have an indemnification obligation in respect of such Third-Party Claim (giving the reasons therefor) and (C) the Indemnified Party shall have the right to assume the defense of such Third-Party Claim. Within thirty (30) days after the
38


receipt of a notice from an Indemnified Party in accordance with Section 4.5(a) (or sooner, if the nature of the Third-Party Claim so requires), the Indemnifying Party shall provide written notice to the Indemnified Party indicating whether the Indemnifying Party shall assume responsibility for defending the Third-Party Claim, which written notice shall specify any reservations or exceptions by the Indemnifying Party. If an Indemnifying Party elects not to assume responsibility for defending any Third-Party Claim or fails to notify an Indemnified Party of its election within thirty (30) days after receipt of the notice from an Indemnified Party as provided in Section 4.5(a), then the Indemnified Party that is the subject of such Third-Party Claim shall be entitled to continue to conduct and control the defense of such Third-Party Claim. Notwithstanding an election by an Indemnifying Party to defend a Third-Party Claim pursuant to this Section 4.5(b), the Indemnified Party may, upon written notice to the Indemnifying Party, elect to take over the defense of such Third-Party Claim (although the Indemnifying Party may continue to participate but not control such defense) if (I) in its exercise of reasonable business judgment, the Indemnified Party determines that the Indemnifying Party is not defending such Third-Party Claim competently or in good faith, (II) the Indemnified Party determines in good faith that such Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party have actual or potential differing defenses or conflicts of interest between them that make joint representation inappropriate, (III) the Indemnifying Party makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, has filed against it or files a petition in bankruptcy or insolvency or is declared bankrupt or insolvent or declares that it is bankrupt or insolvent, or (IV) there occurs a change of control of the Indemnifying Party.

(c)Allocation of Defense Costs. If an Indemnifying Party has elected to assume the defense of a Third-Party Claim, then such Indemnifying Party shall be solely liable for all fees and expenses incurred by it in connection with the defense of such Third-Party Claim and shall not be entitled to seek any indemnification or reimbursement from the Indemnified Party for any such fees or expenses incurred by the Indemnifying Party during the course of the defense of such Third-Party Claim by such Indemnifying Party, regardless of any subsequent decision by the Indemnifying Party to reject or otherwise abandon its assumption of such defense. If an Indemnifying Party elects not to assume responsibility for defending any Third-Party Claim or fails to notify an Indemnified Party of its election within thirty (30) days after receipt of a notice from an Indemnified Party as provided in Section 4.5(a) or the Indemnified Party takes over the defense of any Third Party-Claim pursuant to Section 4.5(b), and the Indemnified Party conducts and controls the defense of such Third-Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party has an indemnification obligation with respect to such Third-Party Claim, then the Indemnifying Party shall be liable for all reasonable fees and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense of such Third-Party Claim.

(d)Right to Monitor and Participate. An Indemnified Party that does not conduct and control the defense of any Third-Party Claim, or an Indemnifying Party from whom the Indemnified Party has taken over control of defense of the claim pursuant to Section 4.5(b), nevertheless shall have the right to employ separate counsel (including local counsel as necessary) of its own choosing to monitor and participate in (but not control) the defense of any Third-Party Claim for which it is a potential Indemnified Party or Indemnifying Party, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be borne by such Indemnified Party or non-controlling
39


Indemnifying Party, as the case may be, and the provisions of Section 4.5(c) shall not apply to such fees and expenses; provided, that if the Indemnifying Party has elected to defend the Third-Party Claim but has specified, and continues to assert, any reservations or exceptions, then the Indemnifying Party shall reimburse the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel for the potential Indemnified Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, but subject to Sections 6.7 and 6.8, and whether or not participating in the defense of a claim, such Party shall cooperate with the Party entitled to conduct and control the defense of such Third-Party Claim in such defense and make available to the controlling Party, all witnesses, information and materials in such Party’s possession or under such Party’s control relating thereto as are reasonably required by the controlling Party (with the reasonable out-of-pocket costs associated with such cooperation being at the expense of the Indemnifying Party). In addition to the foregoing, if any Indemnified Party shall in good faith determine that such Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party have actual or potential differing defenses or conflicts of interest between them that make joint representation inappropriate, then the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel (including local counsel as necessary) and to participate in (but not control) the defense, compromise, or settlement thereof, and the Indemnifying Party shall bear the reasonable fees and expenses of one such counsel and local counsel (as appropriate) for all Indemnified Parties.

(e)No Settlement. Neither Party may settle or compromise any Third-Party Claim for which either Party is seeking to be indemnified hereunder without the prior written consent of the other Party, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, unless such settlement or compromise is solely for monetary damages that are fully payable by the settling or compromising Party, does not involve any admission, finding or determination of wrongdoing or violation of Law by the other Party and provides for a full, unconditional and irrevocable release of the other Party from all Liability in connection with the Third-Party Claim. The Parties hereby agree that if a Party presents the other Party with a written notice containing a proposal to settle or compromise a Third-Party Claim for which either Party is seeking to be indemnified hereunder and the Party receiving such proposal does not respond in any manner to the Party presenting such proposal within thirty (30) days (or within any such shorter time period that may be required by applicable Law or court order) of receipt of such proposal, then the Party receiving such proposal shall be deemed to have consented to the terms of such proposal.

(f)Legal Hold Orders. Concentrix shall prepare and circulate a legal hold order (“LHO”) covering relevant categories of documents as promptly as practical following receipt of any notice pursuant to Section 4.5(a) with respect to any Action that Concentrix determines in good faith is meritorious and shall promptly notify SYNNEX after such LHO has been circulated. SYNNEX shall prepare and circulate a LHO covering documents in the possession, custody or control of the SYNNEX Group with respect to any Action so notified to Concentrix. SYNNEX shall prepare and circulate an LHO covering relevant categories of documents as promptly as practical following receipt of any notice pursuant to Section 4.5(a) with respect to any Action that SYNNEX determines in good faith is meritorious and shall promptly notify Concentrix after such LHO has been circulated. Concentrix shall prepare and circulate a LHO covering documents in the possession, custody or control of the Concentrix Group with respect to any Action so notified to SYNNEX.
40


(g)Reporting. Upon request and as otherwise reasonably necessary to keep the Indemnified Party informed, the Indemnifying Party shall provide the Indemnified Party with a written report identifying any Third-Party Claims that such Indemnifying Party has elected to defend pursuant to Section 4.5(b) and the Actions relating to the Shared Contingent Liabilities, as applicable. In addition, the Indemnifying Party shall establish a procedure reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party to send written notice from the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party when any such Third-Party Claim is closed, regardless of whether such Third-Party Claim was decided by settlement, verdict, dismissal or was otherwise disposed of.

4.6.Additional Matters.
(a)Timing of Payments. Indemnification or contribution payments in respect of any Liabilities for which an Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification or contribution under this Article IV shall be paid reasonably promptly (but in any event within thirty (30) days of the final determination of the amount that the Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification or contribution under this Article IV) by the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party as such Liabilities are incurred upon demand by the Indemnified Party, including reasonably satisfactory documentation setting forth the basis for the amount of such indemnification or contribution payment, including documentation with respect to calculations made and consideration of any Insurance Proceeds or other amounts received from Third Parties that actually reduce the amount of such Liabilities. The indemnity and contribution provisions contained in this Article IV shall remain operative and in full force and effect, regardless of (i) any investigation made by or on behalf of any Indemnified Party, and (ii) the knowledge by the Indemnified Party of Liabilities for which it might be entitled to indemnification hereunder.
(b)Notice of Direct Claims. Any claim for indemnification or contribution under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement that does not result from a Third-Party Claim shall be asserted by written notice given by the Indemnified Party to the applicable Indemnifying Party; provided, that the failure by an Indemnified Party to so assert any such claim shall not prejudice the ability of the Indemnified Party to do so at a later time except to the extent (if any) that the Indemnifying Party is actually prejudiced thereby. Such Indemnifying Party shall have a period of thirty (30) days after the receipt of such notice within which to respond thereto. If such Indemnifying Party does not respond within such thirty (30)-day period, such specified claim shall be conclusively deemed a Liability of the Indemnifying Party under this Section 4.6(b) or, in the case of any written notice in which the amount of the claim (or any portion thereof) is estimated, on such later date when the amount of the claim (or such portion thereof) becomes finally determined. If such Indemnifying Party does not respond within such thirty (30)-day period or rejects such claim in whole or in part, such Indemnified Party shall, subject to the provisions of Article VII, be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to such party as contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, as applicable, without prejudice to its continuing rights to pursue indemnification or contribution hereunder.

(c)Pursuit of Claims Against Third Parties. If (i) a Party incurs any Liability arising out of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement; (ii) an adequate legal or equitable remedy is not available for any reason against the other Party to satisfy the Liability incurred by the
41


incurring Party; and (iii) a legal or equitable remedy may be available to the other Party against a Third Party for such Liability, then the other Party shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with the incurring Party, at the incurring Party’s expense, to permit the incurring Party to obtain the benefits of such legal or equitable remedy against the Third Party.

(d)Substitution. In the event of an Action for which a Party is entitled to indemnification hereunder in which the Indemnifying Party is not a named defendant, if either the Indemnified Party or Indemnifying Party shall so request, the Parties shall endeavor to substitute the Indemnifying Party for the named defendant. If such substitution or addition cannot be achieved for any reason or is not requested, the named defendant shall allow the Indemnifying Party to manage the Action as set forth in Section 4.5 and this Section 4.6, and the Indemnifying Party shall fully indemnify the named defendant against all costs of defending the Action (including court costs, sanctions imposed by a court, attorneys’ fees, experts fees and all other external expenses), the costs of any judgment or settlement and the cost of any interest or penalties relating to any judgment or settlement.

4.7.Right of Contribution.
(a)Contribution. If any right of indemnification contained in Sections 4.2 or 4.3 is held unenforceable or is unavailable for any reason, or is insufficient to hold harmless an Indemnified Party in respect of any Liability for which such Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification hereunder, then the Indemnifying Party shall contribute to the amounts paid or payable by the Indemnified Parties as a result of such Liability (or actions in respect thereof) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the Indemnifying Party and the members of its Group, on the one hand, and the Indemnified Parties entitled to contribution, on the other hand, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.
(b)Allocation of Relative Fault. Solely for purposes of determining relative fault pursuant to this Section 4.7: (i) any fault associated with the business conducted with the Delayed Concentrix Assets or Delayed Concentrix Liabilities (except for the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of a member of the SYNNEX Group) shall be deemed to be the fault of Concentrix and the other members of the Concentrix Group, and no such fault shall be deemed to be the fault of SYNNEX or any other member of the SYNNEX Group; (ii) any fault associated with the business conducted with Delayed SYNNEX Assets or Delayed SYNNEX Liabilities (except for the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of a member of the Concentrix Group) shall be deemed to be the fault of SYNNEX and the other members of the SYNNEX Group, and no such fault shall be deemed to be the fault of Concentrix or any other member of the Concentrix Group; (iii) any fault associated with the ownership, operation or activities of the SYNNEX Business prior to the Effective Time shall be deemed to be the fault of SYNNEX and the other members of the SYNNEX Group, and no such fault shall be deemed to be the fault of Concentrix or any other member of the Concentrix Group; and (iv) any fault associated with the ownership, operation or activities of the Concentrix Business prior to the Effective Time shall be deemed to be the fault of Concentrix and the other members of the Concentrix Group, and no such fault shall be deemed to be the fault of SYNNEX or any other member of the SYNNEX Group.
42


4.8.Covenant Not to Sue. Each Party hereby covenants and agrees that none of it, the members of such Party’s Group or any Person claiming through it shall bring suit or otherwise assert any claim against any Indemnified Party, or assert a defense against any claim asserted by any Indemnified Party, before any court, arbitrator, mediator or administrative agency anywhere in the world, alleging that: (a) the assumption of any Concentrix Liabilities by Concentrix or a member of the Concentrix Group on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements is void or unenforceable for any reason; (b) the retention of any SYNNEX Liabilities by SYNNEX or a member of the SYNNEX Group on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements is void or unenforceable for any reason; or (c) the provisions of this Article IV are void or unenforceable for any reason.
4.9.Remedies Cumulative. The remedies provided in this Article IV shall be cumulative and, subject to the provisions of Article VII, shall not preclude assertion by any Indemnified Party of any other rights or the seeking of any and all other remedies against any Indemnifying Party.

4.10.Survival of Indemnities. The rights and obligations of each of SYNNEX and Concentrix and their respective Indemnified Parties under this Article IV shall survive (a) the sale or other transfer by either Party or any member of its Group of any Assets or businesses or the assignment by it of any Liabilities; or (b) any merger, consolidation, business combination, sale of all or substantially all of its Assets, restructuring, recapitalization, reorganization or similar transaction involving either Party or any of the members of its Group.

4.11.Coordination with Ancillary Agreements. The provisions of Sections 4.2 through 4.10 hereof shall not apply with respect to Taxes or Tax matters (including the control of Tax related proceedings), which shall be governed by the Tax Matters Agreement. In the case of any conflict between this Agreement and the Tax Matters Agreement in relation to any matters addressed by the Tax Matters Agreement, the Tax Matters Agreement shall control.

ARTICLE V.
CERTAIN OTHER MATTERS

5.1.Insurance Matters.
(a)SYNNEX and Concentrix agree to cooperate in good faith to provide for an orderly transition of insurance coverage from the date hereof through the Effective Time. In no event shall SYNNEX, any other member of the SYNNEX Group or any SYNNEX Indemnified Party have Liability or obligation whatsoever to any member of the Concentrix Group in the event that any insurance policy or other contract or policy of insurance shall be terminated or otherwise cease to be in effect for any reason, shall be unavailable or inadequate to cover any Liability of any member of the Concentrix Group for any reason whatsoever, or shall not be renewed or extended beyond the current expiration date.
(b)From and after the Effective Time, with respect to any losses, damages and Liability incurred by any member of the Concentrix Group prior to the Effective Time,
43


SYNNEX will provide Concentrix with access to, and Concentrix may, upon prior written notice to SYNNEX in accordance with procedures to be mutually agreed upon and documented by the Parties from time to time (which documented procedures shall be binding upon the Parties), make claims under, SYNNEX’s policies or contracts of insurance in place immediately prior to the Effective Time and SYNNEX’s historical policies of insurance, but solely to the extent that such policies provided coverage for members of the Concentrix Group prior to the Effective Time; provided, that such access to, and the right to make claims under, such insurance policies, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of such insurance policies, including any limits on coverage or scope, any deductibles and other fees and expenses, and shall be subject to the following additional conditions:

(i)Concentrix shall report any claim to SYNNEX, as promptly as practicable, and in any event in sufficient time so that such claim may be made in accordance with SYNNEX’s claim reporting procedures in effect immediately prior to the Effective Time (or in accordance with any modifications to such procedures after the Effective Time communicated by SYNNEX to Concentrix in writing in advance of such claim);
(ii)Concentrix and the members of the Concentrix Group shall indemnify, hold harmless and reimburse SYNNEX and the members of the SYNNEX Group for any deductibles, self-insured retention (other than any such retention under a SYNNEX Group captive insurance arrangement), fees and expenses incurred by SYNNEX or any members of the SYNNEX Group to the extent resulting from any access to, any claims made by Concentrix or any other members of the Concentrix Group under, any insurance provided pursuant to this Section 5.1(b), including any indemnity payments, settlements, judgments, legal fees and allocated claims expenses and claim handling fees, whether such claims are made by Concentrix, its employees or Third Parties (it being understood that amounts recovered under an SYNNEX Group captive insurance arrangement shall not be deemed to be fees and expenses incurred by SYNNEX or any member of the SYNNEX Group); and

(iii)Concentrix shall exclusively bear (and neither SYNNEX nor any members of the SYNNEX Group shall have any obligation to repay or reimburse Concentrix or any member of the Concentrix Group for) and shall be liable for all uninsured, uncovered, unavailable or uncollectible amounts of all such claims made by Concentrix or any member of the Concentrix Group under the policies as provided for in this Section 5.1(b). In the event an insurance policy aggregate is exhausted, or believed likely to be exhausted, due to noticed claims, the Concentrix Group, on the one hand, and the SYNNEX Group, on the other hand, shall be responsible for their pro rata portion of the reinstatement premium, if any, based upon the losses of such Group submitted to SYNNEX’s insurance carrier(s) (including any submissions prior to the Effective Time). To the extent that the SYNNEX Group or the Concentrix Group is allocated more than its pro rata portion of such premium due to the timing of losses submitted to SYNNEX’s insurance carrier(s), the other party shall promptly pay the first party an amount so that each Group shall be properly allocated its pro rata portion of the reinstatement premium. Subject to the following sentence, SYNNEX may elect not to reinstate the policy
44


aggregate. In the event that SYNNEX elects not to reinstate the policy aggregate, it shall provide prompt written notice to Concentrix, and Concentrix may direct SYNNEX in writing to, and SYNNEX shall, in such case, reinstate the policy aggregate; provided, that Concentrix shall be responsible for all reinstatement premiums and other costs associated with such reinstatement.

In the event that any member of the SYNNEX Group incurs any losses, damages or Liability prior to or in respect of the period prior to the Effective Time for which such member of the SYNNEX Group is entitled to coverage under Concentrix’s insurance policies, the same process pursuant to this Section 5.1(b) shall apply, substituting “SYNNEX” for “Concentrix” and “Concentrix” for “SYNNEX.”
(c)Except as provided in Section 5.1(b), from and after the Effective Time, neither Concentrix nor any member of the Concentrix Group shall have any rights to or under any of the insurance policies of SYNNEX or any other member of the SYNNEX Group. At the Effective Time, Concentrix shall have in effect all insurance programs required to comply with Concentrix’s contractual obligations and such other insurance policies required by Law or as reasonably necessary or appropriate for companies operating a business similar to Concentrix’s. Such insurance programs may include general liability, commercial auto liability, workers’ compensation, employer’s liability, product liability, professional services liability, property, cargo, employment practices liability, employee dishonesty/crime, directors’ and officers’ liability and fiduciary liability.
(d)Neither Concentrix nor any member of the Concentrix Group, in connection with making a claim under any insurance policy of SYNNEX or any member of the SYNNEX Group, nor SYNNEX nor any member of the SYNNEX Group, in connection with making a claim under any insurance policy of Concentrix or any member of the Concentrix Group, in each case pursuant to this Section 5.1, shall take any action (other than the act of making the claim) that would be reasonably likely to (i) have an adverse impact on the then-current relationship between the other Party or any member of its Group, on the one hand, and the applicable insurance company, on the other hand; (ii) result in the applicable insurance company terminating or reducing coverage, or increasing the amount of any premium owed by the other Party or any member of its Group under the applicable insurance policy; or (iii) otherwise compromise, jeopardize or interfere with the rights of the other Party or any member of its Group under the applicable insurance policy. Concentrix and the other members of the Concentrix Group, in connection with reporting, administering or handling a claim on behalf of SYNNEX or any member of the SYNNEX Group under any insurance policy of Concentrix or any member of the Concentrix Group, and SYNNEX and the other members of the SYNNEX Group, in connection with reporting, administering or handling a claim on behalf of Concentrix or any member of the Concentrix Group under any insurance policy of SYNNEX or any member of the SYNNEX Group, in each case pursuant to this Section 5.1, will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid taking any action (other than the acts of reporting, administering or handling the claim) that would be reasonably likely to have an adverse impact on the then-current relationship between the other Party or any member of its Group, on the one hand, and the applicable insurance company, on the other hand, if such insurance company is also an insurer of the other
45


Party or any member of its Group. All payments and reimbursements by a Party (the “Claiming Party”) pursuant to this Section 5.1 will be made within thirty (30) days after the Claiming Party’s receipt of an invoice therefor from the other Party (the “Non-Claiming Party”). If the Non-Claiming Party incurs costs to enforce the Claiming Party’s obligations herein, the Claiming Party agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Non-Claiming Party for such enforcement costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees pursuant to Section 4.6(b).

(e)The Non-Claiming Party shall retain responsibility for and have the exclusive right to control Insurance Administration of its insurance policies and programs and any and all other rights with respect to its insurance policies and programs, including the right to exhaust, settle, release, commute, buyback or otherwise resolve disputes with respect to any of its insurance policies and programs and to amend, modify or waive any rights under any such insurance policies and programs, notwithstanding whether any such policies or programs apply to any Claiming Party Liabilities and/or claims the Claiming Party has made or could make in the future, and no member of the Claiming Party’s Group shall (without the prior written consent of the Non-Claiming Party) erode, exhaust, settle, release, commute, buyback or otherwise resolve disputes with the Non-Claiming Party’s insurers with respect to any of the Non-Claiming Party’s insurance policies and programs, or amend, modify or waive any rights under any such insurance policies and programs. The Claiming Party shall cooperate with the Non-Claiming Party and share such information as is reasonably necessary to permit the Non-Claiming Party to manage and conduct its insurance matters as it deems appropriate. Neither the Non-Claiming Party nor any of the members of the Non-Claiming Party’s Group shall have any obligation to secure extended reporting for any claims under any Liability policies of the Non-Claiming Party or any member of the Non-Claiming Party’s Group for any acts or omissions by any member of the Claiming Party’s Group incurred prior to the Effective Time.

(f)The Non-Claiming Party shall, and shall cause the members of its Group to, (i) use commercially reasonable efforts, at the Claiming Party’s reasonable request (and provided that the Claiming Party complies with the requirements of Section 5.1(b)), to assist the Claiming Party in making claims under the Non-Claiming Party insurance policies described in Section 5.1(b), (ii) notify the Claiming Party within thirty (30) days of any election by the Non-Claiming Party to control any claim under a Non-Claiming Party insurance policy or program to the extent such claim relates to a Claiming Party’s Asset and/or Claiming Party’s Liability and (iii) promptly (and in any event within thirty (30) days after the Non-Claiming Party’s receipt thereof) pay over to the Claiming Party or the applicable member of its Group any Insurance Proceeds that are received by the Non-Claiming Party or any member of its Group in respect of such claims.

(g)This Agreement shall not be considered as an attempted assignment of any policy of insurance or as a contract of insurance and shall not be construed to waive any right or remedy of any member of the SYNNEX Group or the Concentrix Group in respect of any insurance policy or any other contract or policy of insurance.

(h)Concentrix does hereby, for itself and each other member of the Concentrix Group, agree that no member of the SYNNEX Group shall have any Liability whatsoever as a
46


result of the insurance policies and practices of SYNNEX and the members of the SYNNEX Group as in effect at any time, including as a result of the level or scope of any such insurance, the creditworthiness of any insurance carrier, the terms and conditions of any policy, the adequacy or timeliness of any notice to any insurance carrier with respect to any claim or potential claim or otherwise.

5.2.Late Payments. Except as expressly provided to the contrary in this Agreement or in any Ancillary Agreement, any amount not paid when due pursuant to this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement (and any amounts billed or otherwise invoiced or demanded and properly payable that are not paid within thirty (30) days of such bill, invoice or other demand) shall accrue interest at a rate per annum equal to Prime Rate plus two percent (2%).
5.3.Inducement. Concentrix acknowledges and agrees that SYNNEX’s willingness to cause, effect and consummate the Separation and the Distribution has been conditioned upon and induced by Concentrix’s covenants and agreements in this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, including Concentrix’s assumption of the Concentrix Liabilities pursuant to the Separation and the provisions of this Agreement and Concentrix’s covenants and agreements contained in Article IV.

5.4.Post-Effective Time Conduct. The Parties acknowledge that, after the Effective Time, each Party shall be independent of the other Party, with responsibility for its own actions and inactions and its own Liabilities relating to, arising out of or resulting from the conduct of its business, operations and activities following the Effective Time, except as may otherwise be provided in any Ancillary Agreement, and each Party shall (except as otherwise provided in Article IV) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such Liabilities from being inappropriately borne by the other Party.

ARTICLE VI.
EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION; CONFIDENTIALITY

6.1.Agreement for Exchange of Information.
(a)Subject to Section 6.9, any other applicable confidentiality obligations, any Ancillary Agreement or any other agreement between the Parties, each of SYNNEX and Concentrix, on behalf of itself and each member of its Group, agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to provide or make available, or cause to be provided or made available, to the other Party and the members of such other Party’s Group, at any time before, on or after the Effective Time, as soon as reasonably practicable after written request therefor, any information (or a copy thereof) in the possession or under the control of such Party or its Group which the requesting Party or its Group requests to the extent that (i) such information relates (A) to the Concentrix Business, or any Concentrix Asset or Concentrix Liability, if Concentrix is the requesting Party, or (B) to the SYNNEX Business, or any SYNNEX Asset or SYNNEX Liability, if SYNNEX is the requesting Party; (ii) such information is required by the requesting Party to comply with its obligations under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement; or (iii) such information is required by the requesting Party to comply with any obligation imposed by
47


any Governmental Authority; provided, that if the Party to whom the request has been made determines that, in the reasonable good faith judgment of such Party, any such provision of information could be detrimental to the Party providing the information, violate any Law or agreement, or waive any privilege available under applicable Law, including any attorney-client privilege, then the Parties shall use commercially reasonable efforts to permit compliance with such obligations to the extent and in a manner that avoids any such harm or consequence. The Party providing information pursuant to this Section 6.1 shall only be obligated to provide such information in the form, condition and format in which it then exists, and in no event shall such Party be required to perform any improvement, modification, conversion, updating or reformatting of any such information, and nothing in this Section 6.1 shall expand the obligations of a Party under Section 6.4.
(b)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, until the end of the Concentrix fiscal year during which the Distribution Date occurs (and for a reasonable period of time afterwards as required for each Party to prepare consolidated financial statements or complete a financial statement audit for the fiscal year during which the Distribution Date occurs), each Party shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with the other Party’s information requests to enable (i) the other Party to meet its timetable for dissemination of its earnings releases, financial statements and management’s assessment of the effectiveness of its disclosure controls and procedures and its internal control over financial reporting in accordance with Items 307 and 308, respectively, of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Exchange Act; and (ii) the other Party’s accountants to timely complete their review of the quarterly financial statements and audit of the annual financial statements, including, to the extent applicable to such Party, its auditor’s audit of its internal control over financial reporting and management’s assessment thereof in accordance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the SEC’s and Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s rules and auditing standards thereunder and any other applicable Laws.

6.2.Ownership of Information. The provision of any information pursuant to Section 6.1 or Section 6.7 shall not affect the ownership of such information (which shall be determined solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements), or constitute a grant of rights in or to any such information.
6.3.Compensation for Providing Information. Subject to any Ancillary Agreement or any other agreement between the Parties, the Party requesting information agrees to reimburse the other Party for the reasonable costs, if any, of creating, gathering, copying, transporting and otherwise complying with the request with respect to such information (including any reasonable costs and expenses incurred in any review of information for purposes of protecting the Privileged Information of the providing Party or in connection with the restoration of backup media for purposes of providing the requested information). Except as may be otherwise specifically provided elsewhere in this Agreement, any Ancillary Agreement or any other agreement between the Parties, such costs shall be computed in accordance with the providing Party’s standard methodology and procedures as provided to the other Party from time to time.

48


6.4.Record Retention. To facilitate the possible exchange of information pursuant to this Article VI and other provisions of this Agreement after the Effective Time, the Parties agree to use their commercially reasonable efforts, which shall be no less rigorous than those used for retention of such Party’s own information, to retain all information in their respective possession or control at the Effective Time (including information that is subject to an LHO) in accordance with the policies of SYNNEX as in effect at the Effective Time or such other policies as may be adopted by SYNNEX after the Effective Time (provided, that in the case of Concentrix, SYNNEX notifies Concentrix of any such change). Except in accordance with its, or its applicable Subsidiaries’, policies and ordinary course practices, no Party will destroy, or permit any of its Subsidiaries to destroy, any information that would, in accordance with such policies or ordinary course practices, be archived or otherwise filed in a centralized filing system by such party or its applicable Subsidiaries and, without limiting the foregoing, each Party will comply with the requirements of any LHO that relates to (x) any Action that is pending as of the Effective Time; or (y) any Action that arises or becomes threatened or reasonably anticipated after the Effective Time as to which such Party or its Subsidiaries has received a notice of the applicable LHO from the other Party. Notwithstanding anything in this Article VI to the contrary, (a) the Tax Matters Agreement shall govern the retention of Tax related records and the exchange of Tax related information, and (b) the Employee Matters Agreement shall govern the retention of employment and benefits related records.

6.5.Limitations of Liability. Neither Party shall have any Liability to the other Party in the event that any information exchanged or provided pursuant to this Agreement is found to be inaccurate in the absence of gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct by the Party providing such information. Neither Party shall have any Liability to any other Party if any information is destroyed after commercially reasonable efforts by such Party to comply with the provisions of Section 6.4.

6.6.Other Agreements Providing for Exchange of Information.

(a)The rights and obligations granted under this Article VI are subject to any specific limitations, qualifications or additional provisions on the sharing, exchange, retention or confidential treatment of information set forth in any Ancillary Agreement.
(b)Any party that receives, pursuant to a request for information in accordance with this Article VI, Tangible Information that is not relevant to its request shall (i) return it to the providing Party or, at the providing Party’s request, destroy such Tangible Information; and (ii) deliver to the providing Party written confirmation that such Tangible Information was returned or destroyed, as the case may be, which confirmation shall be signed by an authorized representative of the requesting Party.
6.7.Production of Witnesses; Records; Cooperation.
(a)After the Effective Time, except in the case of an adversarial Action or Dispute between SYNNEX and Concentrix or any members of their respective Groups or as prohibited by applicable Law, each Party shall use its reasonable best efforts (which shall not impose undue burden on such Party) to make available to the other Party, upon reasonable advance written
49


request, the former and then-current directors, officers, employees, other personnel and agents of the members of its respective Group as witnesses and any books, records or other documents within its possession, custody or control, to the extent that any such person (giving consideration to business demands of such directors, officers, employees, other personnel and agents) or books, records or other documents may reasonably be required in connection with any Action in which the requesting Party (or member of its Group) may from time to time be involved, regardless of whether such Action is a matter with respect to which indemnification may be sought hereunder. The requesting Party shall bear all costs and expenses in connection therewith.
(b)If an Indemnifying Party chooses to defend or to seek to compromise or settle any Third-Party Claim, the other Party shall make available to such Indemnifying Party (without undue burden to such other Party), upon reasonable advance written request, the former and then-current directors, officers, employees, other personnel and agents of the members of its respective Group as witnesses and any books, records or other documents within its possession, custody or control, to the extent that any such person (giving consideration to business demands of such directors, officers, employees, other personnel and agents) or books, records or other documents may reasonably be required in connection with such defense, settlement or compromise, or such prosecution, evaluation or pursuit, as the case may be, and shall otherwise cooperate in such defense, settlement or compromise, or such prosecution, evaluation or pursuit, as the case may be.

(c)Without limiting the foregoing, the Parties shall cooperate and consult with each other to the extent reasonably necessary with respect to any Actions.

(d)The obligation of the Parties to provide witnesses pursuant to this Section 6.7 is intended to be interpreted in a manner so as to facilitate cooperation and shall include the obligation to provide as witnesses directors, officers, employees, other personnel and agents without regard to whether the witness or the employer of the witness could assert a possible business conflict (subject to the exception set forth in the first sentence of Section 6.7(a)).

6.8.Privileged Matters.
(a)The Parties recognize that legal and other professional services that have been and will be provided prior to the Effective Time (whether by outside counsel, in-house counsel or other legal professionals) have been and will be rendered for the collective benefit of each of the members of the SYNNEX Group and the Concentrix Group, and that each of the members of the SYNNEX Group and the Concentrix Group shall be deemed to be the client with respect to such services for the purposes of asserting all privileges which may be asserted under applicable Law in connection therewith. The Parties recognize that legal and other professional services will be provided following the Effective Time, which services will be rendered solely for the benefit of the SYNNEX Group or the Concentrix Group, as the case may be.
(b)The Parties agree as follows:

50


(i)SYNNEX shall be entitled, in perpetuity, to control the assertion or waiver of all privileges and immunities in connection with any Privileged Information that relates solely to the SYNNEX Business and not to the Concentrix Business, whether or not the Privileged Information is in the possession or under the control of any member of the SYNNEX Group or any member of the Concentrix Group. SYNNEX shall also be entitled, in perpetuity, to control the assertion or waiver of all privileges and immunities in connection with any Privileged Information that relates solely to any SYNNEX Liabilities resulting from any other Actions that are now pending or may be asserted in the future, whether or not the Privileged Information is in the possession or under the control of any member of the SYNNEX Group or any member of the Concentrix Group; and
(ii)Concentrix shall be entitled, in perpetuity, to control the assertion or waiver of all privileges and immunities in connection with any Privileged Information that relates solely to the Concentrix Business and not to the SYNNEX Business, whether or not the Privileged Information is in the possession or under the control of any member of the Concentrix Group or any member of the SYNNEX Group. Concentrix shall also be entitled, in perpetuity, to control the assertion or waiver of all privileges and immunities in connection with any Privileged Information that relates solely to any Concentrix Liabilities resulting from any other Actions that are now pending or may be asserted in the future, whether or not the Privileged Information is in the possession or under the control of any member of the Concentrix Group or any member of the SYNNEX Group.

(iii)If the Parties do not agree as to whether certain information is Privileged Information, then such information shall be treated as Privileged Information, and the Party that believes that such information is Privileged Information shall be entitled to control the assertion or waiver of all privileges and immunities in connection with any such information until such time as it is finally judicially determined that such information is not Privileged Information, unless the Parties otherwise agree. The Parties shall use the procedures set forth in Article VII to resolve any Disputes as to whether any information relates solely to the SYNNEX Business, solely to the Concentrix Business, or to both the SYNNEX Business and the Concentrix Business.

(c)Subject to the remaining provisions of this Section 6.8, the Parties agree that they shall have a shared privilege or immunity with respect to all privileges and immunities not allocated pursuant to Section 6.8(b) and all privileges and immunities relating to any Actions or other matters that involve both Parties (or one or more members of their respective Groups) and in respect of which both Parties have Liabilities under this Agreement, and that no such shared privilege or immunity may be waived by either Party without the written consent of the other Party. The Parties will enter into common interest or joint defense agreements as deemed necessary to preserve privilege, allow coordination of defenses, and avoid waivers of privilege in connection with any Privileged Information that relates to Shared Contingent Liabilities, whether or not the Privileged Information is in the possession or under the control of any member of the Concentrix Group or any member of the SYNNEX Group.
51


(d)If any Dispute arises between the Parties or any members of their respective Group regarding whether a privilege or immunity should be waived to protect or advance the interests of either Party and/or any member of their respective Groups, each Party agrees that it shall (i) negotiate with the other Party in good faith; (ii) endeavor to minimize any prejudice to the rights of the other Party; and (iii) not unreasonably withhold consent to any request for waiver by the other Party. Further, each Party specifically agrees that it shall not withhold its consent to the waiver of a privilege or immunity for any purpose except in good faith to protect its own legitimate interests.

(e)Subject to Section 6.9, in the event of any adversarial Action or Dispute between SYNNEX and Concentrix, or any members of their respective Groups, either Party may waive a privilege in which the other Party or member of such other Party’s Group has a shared privilege, without obtaining consent pursuant to Section 6.8(c); provided, that such waiver of a shared privilege shall be effective only as to the use of information with respect to the Action or Dispute between the Parties and/or the applicable members of their respective Groups, and shall not operate as a waiver of the shared privilege with respect to any Third Party.

(f)Upon receipt by either Party, or by any member of its respective Group, of any subpoena, discovery or other request (or of written notice that it will or has received such subpoena, discovery or other request) that may reasonably be expected to result in the production or disclosure of Privileged Information subject to a shared privilege or immunity or as to which another Party has the sole right hereunder to assert a privilege or immunity, or if either Party obtains knowledge or becomes aware that any of its, or any member of its respective Group’s, current or former directors, officers, agents or employees have received any subpoena, discovery or other requests (or have received written notice that they will or have received such subpoena, discovery or other requests) that may reasonably be expected to result in the production or disclosure of such Privileged Information, such Party shall promptly notify the other Party of the existence of the request (which notice shall be delivered to such other Party no later than five (5) business days following the receipt of (or of written notice that it will or has received) any such subpoena, discovery or other request) and shall provide the other Party a reasonable opportunity to review the Privileged Information and to assert any rights it or they may have, under this Section 6.8 or otherwise, to prevent the production or disclosure of such Privileged Information; provided, that if such Party is prohibited by applicable Law from disclosing the existence of the request, such Party shall provide written notice of such related information for which disclosure is not prohibited by applicable Law and use commercially reasonable efforts to inform the other Party of any related information such Party determines, in its discretion, is necessary or appropriate for the other Party to be informed of to enable the other Party to review the Privileged Information and to assert its rights, under this Section 6.8 or otherwise, to prevent the production or disclosure of such Privileged Information.

(g)In the event either Party inadvertently discloses any Privileged Information or inadvertently waives any privilege or immunity as to which the other Party has any interest, that Party shall immediately (i) advise the other Party of the inadvertent disclosure or waiver and (ii) take all reasonably available steps to claw back any waived or disclosed information.

52


(h)Any furnishing of, or access or transfer of, any information pursuant to this Agreement is made in reliance on the agreement of SYNNEX and Concentrix set forth in this Section 6.8 and in Section 6.9 to maintain the confidentiality of Privileged Information and to assert and maintain all applicable privileges and immunities. The Parties agree that their respective rights to any access to information, witnesses and other Persons, the furnishing of notices and documents and other cooperative efforts between the Parties contemplated by this Agreement, and the transfer of Privileged Information between the Parties and members of their respective Groups pursuant to this Agreement, shall not be deemed a waiver of any privilege that has been or may be asserted under this Agreement or otherwise. The Parties further agree that (i) the exchange by one Party to the other Party of any Privileged Information that should not have been transferred pursuant to the terms of this Article VI shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of any privilege or immunity that has been or may be asserted under this Agreement or otherwise with respect to such Privileged Information; and (ii) the Party receiving such Privileged Information shall promptly return such Privileged Information to the Party who has the right to assert the privilege or immunity.

(i)In connection with any matter contemplated by Section 6.7 or this Section 6.8, the Parties agree to, and to cause the applicable members of their Group to, use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain their respective separate and joint privileges and immunities, including by executing joint defense and/or common interest agreements where necessary or useful for this purpose.

6.9.Confidentiality.
(a)Confidentiality. Subject to Section 6.10 and any Ancillary Agreement, from and after the Effective Time until the five (5) year anniversary of the Effective Time, each of SYNNEX and Concentrix, on behalf of itself and each member of its respective Group, agrees to hold, and to cause its respective Representatives to hold, in strict confidence, with at least the same degree of care that applies to SYNNEX’s confidential and proprietary information pursuant to policies in effect as of the Effective Time, all confidential and proprietary information concerning the other Party or any member of the other Party’s Group or their respective businesses that is either (i) in its possession (including confidential and proprietary information in its possession prior to the date hereof) or (ii) furnished by any such other Party or any member of such Party’s Group or their respective Representatives at any time pursuant to this Agreement, any Ancillary Agreement or otherwise, and shall not use any such confidential and proprietary information other than for such purposes as shall be expressly permitted hereunder or thereunder, except, in each case, to the extent that such confidential and proprietary information is or was (A) in the public domain or generally available to the public, other than as a result of a disclosure by such Party or any member of such Party’s Group or any of their respective Representatives in violation of this Agreement, (B) later lawfully acquired from other sources by such Party (or any member of such Party’s Group) which sources are not themselves bound by a confidentiality obligation or other contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation of confidentiality with respect to such confidential and proprietary information, or (C) independently developed or generated without reference to or use of any proprietary or confidential information of the other Party or any member of such Party’s Group. If any confidential and proprietary information of one Party
53


or any member of its Group is disclosed to the other Party or any member of such other Party’s Group in connection with providing services to such first Party or any member of such first Party’s Group under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, then such disclosed confidential and proprietary information shall be used only as required to perform such services.
(b)No Release; Return or Destruction. Each Party agrees not to release or disclose, or permit to be released or disclosed, any information addressed in Section 6.9(a) to any other Person, except its Representatives who need to know such information in their capacities as such (who shall be advised of their obligations hereunder with respect to such information), and except in compliance with Section 6.10. Without limiting the foregoing, when any such information is no longer needed for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, each Party shall, at its option and as promptly as practicable after receiving a written request from the other Party, either (i) return to the other Party all such information in a tangible form (including all copies thereof and all notes, extracts or summaries based thereon) or (ii) destroy, and certify to the other Party that it has destroyed, such information (and such copies thereof and such notes, extracts or summaries based thereon); provided, that such Party’s Representatives may retain one (1) copy of such information to the extent required by applicable Law or professional standards, and the Parties and their Representatives shall not be required to destroy any such information located in routine back-up, archival electronic storage; provided, further, that any such information so retained shall remain subject to the confidentiality provisions of the Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement).

(c)Third-Party Information; Privacy or Data Protection Laws. Each Party acknowledges that it and members of its Group may presently have and, following the Effective Time, may gain access to or possession of confidential or proprietary information of, or personal information relating to, Third Parties (i) that was received under confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements entered into between such Third Parties, on the one hand, and the other Party or members of such Party’s Group, on the other hand, prior to the Effective Time; or (ii) that, as between the Parties, was originally collected by the other Party or members of such Party’s Group and that may be subject to and protected by privacy, data protection or other applicable Laws. Subject to any other Ancillary Agreement, each Party agrees that it shall hold, protect and use, and shall cause the members of its Group and its and their respective Representatives to hold, protect and use, in strict confidence the confidential and proprietary information of, or personal information relating to, Third Parties in accordance with privacy, data protection or other applicable Laws and the terms of any agreements that were either entered into before the Effective Time or affirmative commitments or representations that were made before the Effective Time by, between or among the other Party or members of the other Party’s Group, on the one hand, and such Third Parties, on the other hand.

6.10.Protective Arrangements. In the event that a Party or any member of its Group either determines on the advice of its counsel that it is required to disclose any information pursuant to applicable Law or receives any request or demand under lawful process or from any Governmental Authority to disclose or provide information of the other Party (or any member of the other Party’s Group) that is subject to the confidentiality provisions hereof, such Party shall notify the other Party (to the extent legally permitted) as promptly as practicable under the
54


circumstances prior to disclosing or providing such information and shall cooperate, at such other Party’s cost and expense, in seeking any appropriate protective order requested by the other Party. In the event that such other Party fails to receive such appropriate protective order in a timely manner and the Party receiving the request or demand reasonably determines that its failure to disclose or provide such information will actually prejudice the Party receiving the request or demand, then the Party that received such request or demand may thereafter disclose or provide information to the extent required by such Law (as so advised by its counsel) or by lawful process or such Governmental Authority, and the disclosing Party shall promptly provide the other Party with a copy of the information so disclosed, in the same form and format so disclosed, together with a list of all Persons to whom such information was disclosed, in each case to the extent legally permitted.
ARTICLE VII.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION

7.1.Good-Faith Negotiation. Subject to Section 7.5, either Party seeking resolution of any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or Ancillary Agreement (including regarding whether any Assets are Concentrix Assets, any Liabilities are Concentrix Liabilities or the validity, interpretation, breach or termination of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement) (a “Dispute”) shall provide written notice thereof to the other Party (the “Initial Notice”), and within thirty (30) days of the delivery of the Initial Notice, the Parties shall attempt in good faith to negotiate a resolution of the Dispute. The negotiations shall be conducted by executives who hold, at a minimum, the title of senior vice president and who have authority to settle the Dispute. If the Parties are unable for any reason to resolve a Dispute within thirty (30) days after the delivery of the Initial Notice or if a Party reasonably concludes that the other Party is not willing to negotiate as contemplated by the preceding sentences of this Section 7.1, the Dispute shall be submitted to the Chief Executive Officer of SYNNEX and the Chief Executive Officer of Concentrix, who shall negotiate in good faith to resolve the Dispute. If within ten (10) days after submission of the Dispute to the Chief Executive Officer of SYNNEX and the Chief Executive Officer of Concentrix, the Parties have been unable for any reason to resolve the Dispute, either Party may submit the Dispute to mediation in accordance with Section 7.2. All negotiations pursuant to this Section 7.1 shall be confidential and shall be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence.
7.2.Non-Binding Mediation. Any Dispute not resolved pursuant to Section 7.1 shall, upon the written request of a Party (a “Mediation Request”), be submitted to nonbinding mediation in accordance with the then current JAMS International Mediation Rules (the “Mediation Rules”), except as modified herein. The mediation shall be held in (i) Fremont, California or (ii) such other place as the Parties may mutually agree in writing. The Parties shall have twenty (20) days from receipt by a Party of a Mediation Request to agree on a mediator. If no mediator has been agreed upon by the Parties within twenty (20) days of receipt by a party of a Mediation Request, then a Party may request (on written notice to the other Party), that JAMS appoint a mediator in accordance with the Mediation Rules. All mediation pursuant to this clause shall be confidential and shall be treated as compromise and settlement negotiations for purposes of applicable rules of evidence, and no oral or documentary representations made by the Parties
55


during such mediation shall be admissible for any purpose in any subsequent proceedings. No Party shall disclose or permit the disclosure of any information about the evidence adduced or the documents produced by the other Party in the mediation proceedings or about the existence, contents or results of the mediation without the prior written consent of such other Party, except in the course of a judicial or regulatory proceeding or as may be required by Law or requested by a Governmental Authority or securities exchange. Before making any disclosure permitted by the preceding sentence, the Party intending to make such disclosure shall, to the extent reasonably practicable, give the other Party reasonable written notice of the intended disclosure and afford the other party a reasonable opportunity to protect its interests. If the Dispute has not been resolved within sixty (60) days of the appointment of a mediator, or within ninety (90) days after receipt by a Party of a Mediation Request (whichever occurs sooner), or within such longer period as the Parties may agree to in writing, then the Dispute shall be submitted to binding arbitration in accordance with Section 7.3.

7.3.Arbitration.

(a)In the event that a Dispute has not been resolved within sixty (60) days of the appointment of a mediator in accordance with Section 7.2, or within ninety (90) days after receipt by a Party of a Mediation Request (whichever occurs sooner), or within such longer period as the Parties may agree to in writing, then such Dispute shall, upon the written request of a Party (an “Arbitration Request”) be submitted to be finally resolved by binding arbitration pursuant to the then current CPR Arbitration Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitration Rules”). The arbitration shall be held in the same location as the mediation pursuant to Section 7.2. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties in writing, any Dispute to be decided by binding arbitration pursuant to this Section 7.4 will be decided (i) before a sole independent arbitrator if the amount in dispute, inclusive of all claims and counterclaims, totals $5 million or less; or (ii) by a panel of three (3) arbitrators if the amount in dispute, inclusive of all claims and counterclaims, totals more than $5 million.
(b)The panel of three (3) arbitrators will be chosen as follows: (i) within fifteen (15) days from the date of the receipt of the Arbitration Request, each Party will name an arbitrator; and (ii) the two (2) Party-appointed arbitrators will thereafter, within thirty (30) days from the date on which the second of the two (2) arbitrators was named, name a third, independent arbitrator who will act as chairperson of the arbitral tribunal. In the event that either Party fails to name an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days from the date of receipt of the Arbitration Request, then upon written application by either Party, that arbitrator shall be appointed pursuant to the Arbitration Rules. In the event that the two (2) Party-appointed arbitrators fail to appoint the third, then the third, independent arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the Arbitration Rules. If the arbitration will be before a sole independent arbitrator, then the sole independent arbitrator will be appointed by agreement of the Parties within fifteen (15) days of the date of receipt of the Arbitration Request. If the Parties cannot agree to a sole independent arbitrator, then upon written application by either party, the sole independent arbitrator will be appointed pursuant to the Arbitration Rules.

56


(c)The arbitrator(s) will have the right to award, on an interim basis, or include in the final award, any relief which it deems proper in the circumstances, including money damages (with interest on unpaid amounts from the due date), injunctive relief (including specific performance) and attorneys’ fees and costs. The arbitrator(s) will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable Law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by Law. In no event shall the arbitrator(s) award any relief not specifically requested by the Parties or award any indirect, punitive, exemplary, remote, speculative or similar damages in excess of compensatory damages of the other arising in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby (other than any such Liability with respect to a Third-Party Claim). Upon selection of the arbitrator(s) following any grant of interim relief by a special arbitrator or court pursuant to Section 7.4, the arbitrator(s) may affirm or disaffirm that relief, and the Parties will seek modification or rescission of the order entered by the court as necessary to accord with the decision of the arbitrator(s). The award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on the Parties, and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The Parties shall share equally the administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration.

(d)The initiation of mediation or arbitration pursuant to this Article VII will toll the applicable statute of limitations for the duration of any such proceedings.

7.4.Litigation and Unilateral Commencement of Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Article VII, (a) a Party may seek preliminary provisional or injunctive judicial relief with respect to a Dispute without first complying with the procedures set forth in Sections 7.1 to 7.3 if such action is reasonably necessary to avoid irreparable damage and (b) either Party may initiate arbitration before the expiration of the periods specified in Sections 7.2 and 7.3 if (i) such Party has submitted a Mediation Request or Arbitration Request, as applicable, and the other Party has failed, within the applicable periods set forth in Section 7.2, to agree upon a date for the first mediation session to take place within thirty (30) days after the appointment of such mediator or such longer period as the Parties may agree to in writing or (ii) such Party has failed to comply with Section 7.3 in good faith with respect to commencement and engagement in arbitration. In such event, the other Party may commence and prosecute such arbitration unilaterally in accordance with the Arbitration Rules. Immediately following the issuance of any preliminary provisional or injunctive relief pursuant to clause (a) of the immediately preceding sentence, the Party seeking such relief will consent to the stay of any judicial proceedings pending the resolution of the Dispute pursuant to the procedures set forth in Sections 7.1 to 7.3.
7.5.Conduct During Dispute Resolution Process. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Parties shall, and shall cause their respective members of their Group to, continue to honor all commitments under this Agreement and each Ancillary Agreement to the extent required by such agreements during the course of dispute resolution pursuant to the provisions of this Article VII, unless such commitments are the specific subject of the Dispute at issue.

57


ARTICLE VIII.

(b)Without limiting the foregoing, prior to, on and after the Effective Time, each Party hereto shall cooperate with the other Party, and without any further consideration, but at the expense of the requesting Party, to execute and deliver, or use its reasonable best efforts to cause to be executed and delivered, all instruments, including instruments of conveyance, assignment and transfer, and to make all filings with, and to obtain all Approvals or Notifications of, any Governmental Authority or any other Person under any permit, license, agreement, indenture or other instrument (including any Governmental Approvals) and to take all such other actions as such Party may reasonably be requested to take by the other Party from time to time, consistent with the terms of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, in order to effectuate the provisions and purposes of this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, the transfers of the Concentrix Assets and the SYNNEX Assets, the assignment and assumption of the Concentrix Liabilities and the SYNNEX Liabilities and the other transactions contemplated hereby and thereby. Without limiting the foregoing, each Party will, at the reasonable request, cost and expense of the other Party, take such other actions as may be reasonably necessary to vest in such other Party good and marketable title to the Assets transferred or allocated to such Party under this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements, free and clear of any Security Interest, if and to the extent it is practicable to do so.

(c)On or prior to the Effective Time, SYNNEX and Concentrix in their respective capacities as direct and indirect stockholders of the members of their respective Groups, shall each ratify any actions that are reasonably necessary or desirable to be taken by SYNNEX, Concentrix or any of the members of their respective Groups, as the case may be, to effectuate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements.

10.13.Waivers of Default. Waiver by a Party of any default by the other Party of any provision of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver by the waiving Party of any subsequent or other default, nor shall it prejudice the rights of the other Party. No failure or delay by a Party in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall a single or partial exercise thereof prejudice any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.

10.14.Specific Performance. Subject to the provisions of Article VII, in the event of any actual or threatened default in, or breach of, any of the terms, conditions and provisions of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreement, the Party or Parties who are, or are to be, thereby
62


aggrieved shall have the right to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief in respect of its or their rights under this Agreement or such Ancillary Agreement, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies at law or in equity, and all such rights and remedies shall be cumulative.

Exhibit 3.1
AMENDED AND RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION OF
CONCENTRIX CORPORATION

Concentrix Corporation, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, hereby certifies as follows:
FIRST: The name of the corporation is Concentrix Corporation.
SECOND: The original Certificate of Incorporation of the corporation was filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on December 15, 2009 under the name SYNNEX GBS, INC., and was amended on March 14, 2014 to change the name to Concentrix Global Holdings, Inc., and was subsequently amended on February 12, 2020.
THIRD: Pursuant to Sections 242 and 245 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, this Restated Certificate of Incorporation restates, integrates and further amends the provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation of the corporation.
FOURTH: The Certificate of Incorporation of the corporation shall be amended and restated to read in full as follows:
ARTICLE I
The name of the corporation is Concentrix Corporation (the “Corporation”).
ARTICLE II
The registered agent and the address of the registered offices in the State of Delaware are:
THE CORPORATION TRUST COMPANY
Corporation Trust Center
1209 Orange Street
Wilmington, DE 19801
New Castle County

ARTICLE III
The purpose of the Corporation is to engage in any lawful act or activity for which a corporation may be organized under the General Corporation Law of Delaware (the DGCL).
ARTICLE IV
A.Classes of Stock. The total number of shares of all classes of capital stock that the Corporation shall have authority to issue is 260,000,000, of which 250,000,000 shares shall be Common Stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), and of which




10,000,000 shares shall be Preferred Stock, $0.0001 par value per share (the “Preferred Stock”). The number of authorized shares of Common Stock or Preferred Stock may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof then outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the then outstanding shares of Common Stock, without a vote of the holders of the Preferred Stock, or of any series thereof, unless a vote of any such Preferred Stock holders is required pursuant to the provisions established by the Board of Directors of the Corporation (the “Board of Directors”) in the resolution or resolutions providing for the issue of such Preferred Stock, and if such holders of such Preferred Stock are so entitled to vote thereon, then, except as may otherwise be set forth in this Restated Certificate (this “Certificate”), the only stockholder approval required shall be the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of the Common Stock and the Preferred Stock so entitled to vote, voting together as a single class.
B.Preferred Stock. The Preferred Stock may be issued from time to time in one or more series, as determined by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is expressly authorized to provide for the issue, in one or more series, of all or any of the remaining shares of Preferred Stock and, in the resolution or resolutions providing for such issue, to establish for each such series the number of its shares, the voting powers, full or limited, of the shares of such series, or that such shares shall have no voting powers, and the designations, preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights of the shares of such series, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof. The Board of Directors is also expressly authorized (unless forbidden in the resolution or resolutions providing for such issue) to increase or decrease (but not below the number of shares of such series then outstanding) the number of shares of any series subsequent to the issuance of shares of that series. In case the number of shares of any such series shall be so decreased, the shares constituting such decrease shall resume the status that they had prior to the adoption of the resolution originally fixing the number of shares of such series. Unless the Board of Directors provides to the contrary in the resolution which fixes the designations, preferences and rights of a series of Preferred Stock, neither the consent by series, or otherwise, of the holders of any outstanding Preferred Stock nor the consent of the holders of any outstanding Common Stock shall be required for the issuance of any new series of Preferred Stock regardless of whether the rights and preferences of the new series of Preferred Stock are senior or superior, in any way, to the outstanding series of Preferred Stock or the Common Stock.
C.Common Stock.
1.Relative Rights of Preferred Stock and Common Stock. All preferences, voting powers, relative, participating, optional, or other special rights and privileges, and qualifications, limitations, or restrictions of the Common Stock are expressly made subject and subordinate to those that may be fixed with respect to any shares of the Preferred Stock.
2.Voting Rights. Except as otherwise required by law or this Certificate, each holder of Common Stock shall have one vote in respect of each share of stock held by such holder of record on the books of the Corporation for the election of directors and on all matters
2




submitted to a vote of stockholders of the Corporation. No holder of shares of Common Stock shall have the right to cumulative votes.
3.Dividends. Subject to the preferential rights of the Preferred Stock and except as otherwise required by law or this Certificate, the holders of shares of Common Stock shall be entitled to receive, dividends when and if declared by the Board of Directors, out of the assets of the Corporation which are by law available therefor, dividends payable either in cash, in property or in shares of capital stock.
4.Dissolution, Liquidation, or Winding Up. In the event of any dissolution, liquidation, or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation, after distribution in full of the preferential amounts, if any, to be distributed to the holders of shares of the Preferred Stock, holders of Common Stock shall be entitled, except as otherwise required by law or this Certificate, to receive all of the remaining assets of the Corporation of whatever kind available for distribution to stockholders ratably in proportion to the number of shares of Common Stock held by them respectively. A merger, conversion, exchange, or consolidation of the Corporation with or into any other person or sale or transfer of all or any part of the assets of the Corporation (which shall not in fact result in the liquidation of the Corporation and the distribution of assets to stockholders) shall not be deemed to be a voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the affairs of the Corporation.
5.No Conversion, Redemption, or Preemptive Rights. The holders of Common Stock shall not have any conversion, redemption, or preemptive rights.
6.Consideration for Shares. The Common Stock authorized by this Certificate shall be issued for such consideration as shall be fixed, from time to time, by the Board of Directors.
ARTICLE V
In furtherance and not in limitation of the powers conferred by the laws of the State of Delaware:
A.Authority and Number of Directors. The Board of Directors is expressly authorized to adopt, amend, or repeal the bylaws of the Corporation (the “Bylaws”), without any action on the part of the stockholders, by the vote of at least a majority of the directors of the Corporation then in office. The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by a Board of Directors. The authorized number of directors of the Corporation shall be fixed in the manner provided in the Bylaws. Other than those directors elected by the holders of any series of Preferred Stock as provided for or fixed pursuant to the provisions of Article IV hereof, each director shall serve until his or her successor shall be duly elected and qualified or until his or her earlier resignation, removal from office, death, or incapacity.
B.Vacancies; Removal. Subject to the rights of the holders of any series of Preferred Stock then outstanding, newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors or any vacancies in the Board of Directors resulting from death,
3




resignation, retirement, disqualification, removal from office, or other cause shall be filled solely by a majority vote of the directors then in office, although less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director. If there are no directors in office, then an election of directors may be held in the manner provided by statute. Directors chosen pursuant to any of the foregoing provisions shall hold office until their successors are duly elected and qualified or until their earlier resignation, removal from office, death, or incapacity. No decrease in the number of directors constituting the Board of Directors shall shorten the term of any incumbent director. In the event of a vacancy in the Board of Directors, the remaining directors, except as otherwise provided by law, or by this Certificate or the Bylaws, may exercise the powers of the full Board of Directors until the vacancy is filled.
ARTICLE VI
In furtherance and not in limitation of the powers conferred by the laws of the State of Delaware:
A.Elections of directors need not be by written ballot unless the Bylaws shall so provide.
B.The books of the Corporation may be kept at such place within or without the State of Delaware as the Bylaws may provide or as may be designated from time to time by the Board of Directors.
ARTICLE VII
A.Power of Stockholder to Act by Written Consent. No action required or permitted to be taken at any annual or special meeting of the stockholders may be taken without a meeting called and noticed in the manner required by the Bylaws and the DGCL. The stockholders may not in any circumstance take action by written consent.
B.Special Meetings of Stockholders. Special meetings of the stockholders of the Corporation may be called for any purpose or purposes, unless otherwise prescribed by statute or by this Certificate, only at the request of the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer, or the President of the Corporation, or by a resolution adopted by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Board of Directors. Any power of stockholders to call a special meeting of stockholders is specifically denied. Except as otherwise required by law or this Certificate, the Board of Directors may postpone, reschedule, or cancel any special meeting of stockholders.
C.Notice. Advance notice of stockholder nominations for the election of directors and of business to be brought by stockholders before any meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation shall be given in the manner and to the extent provided in the Bylaws.
4




ARTICLE VIII
A.Limitation on Liability. To the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, as the same exists or as may hereafter be amended (including, but not limited to Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL), a director of the Corporation shall not be personally liable to the Corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director. If the DGCL hereafter is amended to further eliminate or limit the liability of directors, then the liability of a director of the Corporation, in addition to the limitation on liability provided herein, shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by the amended DGCL. Any repeal or modification of this paragraph by the stockholders of the Corporation shall be prospective only and shall not adversely affect any limitation on the personal liability of a director of the Corporation existing at the time of such repeal or modification.
B.Indemnification. Each person who is or was a director or officer of the Corporation or is or was serving at the request of the Corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan, or other enterprise (including the heirs, executors, administrators, or estate of such person), shall be indemnified and advanced expenses by the Corporation, in accordance with the Bylaws, to the fullest extent authorized by the DGCL, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent that such amendment permits the Corporation to provide broader indemnification rights than said law permitted the Corporation to provide prior to such amendment) or any other applicable laws as presently or hereinafter in effect. The right to indemnification and advancement of expenses hereunder shall not be exclusive of any other right that any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, provision of this Certificate or the Bylaws, agreement, vote of stockholders, or disinterested directors or otherwise.
C.Repeal and Modification. Any repeal or modification of the foregoing provisions of this Article IX shall not adversely affect any right or protection existing hereunder immediately prior to such repeal or modification.
ARTICLE IX
The affirmative vote of the holders of at least sixty-six and two-thirds percent (66-2/3%) of the voting power of the shares of the capital stock of the Corporation entitled to vote generally in the election of directors, voting together as a single class, shall be required to amend in any respect or repeal this Article IX or Articles V, VII and VIII; provided, however, unless the Certificate of Incorporation is approved by holders of at least a majority of the voting power of the shares of capital stock of the Corporation, after the 2026 Annual Meeting of the Corporation, this Article IX or Articles V, VII and VIII may be adopted, amended or replaced by the affirmative vote of a majority of the voting power of the shares of capital stock of the corporation.

AMENDED AND RESTATED
B Y L A W S
OF
CONCENTRIX CORPORATION
(a Delaware corporation)
ARTICLE 1
Offices

1.1Registered Office. The registered office of Concentrix Corporation shall be set forth in the certificate of incorporation of the corporation.
1.2Other Offices. The corporation may also have offices at such other places, either within or without the State of Delaware, as the board of directors of the corporation (the “Board of Directors”) may from time to time designate, or the business of the corporation may require.

ARTICLE 2
Meeting of Stockholders

2.1Place of Meeting. Meetings of stockholders may be held at such place, either within or outside the State of Delaware, as may be designated by or in the manner provided in these bylaws, or, if not so designated, at the principal executive offices of the corporation. The Board of Directors may, in its sole discretion, (a) determine that a meeting of stockholders shall not be held at any place, or (b) permit participation by stockholders at such meeting, by means of remote communication as authorized by Section 211(a)(2) of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”).
2.2Annual Meeting.

(a)Annual meetings of stockholders shall be held each year at such date and time as shall be designated from time to time by the Board of Directors and stated in the notice of the meeting. At each such annual meeting, the stockholders shall elect by plurality vote a Board of Directors. The stockholders shall also transact such other business as may properly be brought before the meeting. Except as otherwise restricted by the certificate of incorporation of the corporation or applicable law, the Board of Directors may postpone, reschedule, or cancel any annual meeting of stockholders.
(b)To be properly brought before the annual meeting, business must be (a) specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, (b) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board




of Directors, or (c) otherwise properly brought before the meeting by a stockholder of record. A motion related to business proposed to be brought before any stockholders’ meeting may be made by any stockholder entitled to vote if the business proposed is otherwise proper to be brought before the meeting. However, any such stockholder may propose business to be brought before a meeting only if such stockholder has given timely notice to the Secretary of the corporation in proper written form of the stockholder’s intent to propose such business. To be timely, the stockholder’s notice must be delivered by a nationally recognized courier service or mailed by first class United States mail, postage or delivery charges prepaid, and received at the principal executive offices of the corporation addressed to the attention of the Secretary of the corporation not more than one hundred twenty (120) days nor less than ninety (90) days in advance of the anniversary of the date of the corporation’s proxy statement provided in connection with the previous year’s annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that in the event that no annual meeting was held in the previous year or the annual meeting is called for a date that is more than thirty (30) days before or after the anniversary date of the previous year’s annual meeting, notice by the stockholder must be received by the Secretary of the corporation not later than the close of business on the later of (x) the ninetieth (90th) day prior to such annual meeting and (y) the tenth (10th) day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. For the purposes of these bylaws, “public announcement” shall mean disclosure in a press release reported by the Dow Jones News Service, Associated Press or a comparable national news service or in a document publicly filed by the corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In no event shall the public announcement of an adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting commence a new time period (or extend any time period) for the giving of a stockholder’s notice as described above. A stockholder’s notice to the Secretary shall set forth as to each matter the stockholder proposes to bring before the annual meeting: (i) a brief description of the business desired to be brought before the annual meeting, the text of the proposal or business (including the text of any resolutions proposed for consideration and in the event that such business includes a proposal to amend the Bylaws of the corporation, the language of the proposed amendment), and the reasons for conducting such business at the annual meeting; (ii) the name and record address of the stockholder proposing such business and the beneficial owner, if any, on whose behalf the proposal is made; (iii) the class, series, and number of shares of the corporation that are owned beneficially and of record by the stockholder and such beneficial owner; (iv) any material interest of the stockholder in such business; and (v) any other information that is required to be provided by the stockholder pursuant to Section 14 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (collectively, the “1934 Act”) in such stockholder’s capacity as a proponent of a stockholder proposal.

Notwithstanding anything in these bylaws to the contrary, no business shall be conducted at the annual meeting except in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section; provided, however, that nothing in this Section shall be deemed to preclude discussion by any stockholder of any business properly brought before the annual meeting.
The Chairman of the Board (or such other person presiding at the meeting in accordance with these bylaws) shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section,
-2-



and if he or she should so determine, he or she shall so declare to the meeting and any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted.
2.3Special Meetings. Special meetings of the stockholders may be called for any purpose or purposes, unless otherwise prescribed by statute or by the certificate of incorporation, by the Secretary only at the request of the Chairman of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer or the President or by a resolution duly adopted by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Board of Directors. Such request shall state the purpose or purposes of the proposed meeting. Business transacted at any special meeting shall be limited to the matters relating to the purpose or purposes stated in the notice of meeting. Except as otherwise restricted by the certificate of incorporation or applicable law, the Board of Directors may postpone, reschedule, or cancel any special meeting of stockholders.
2.4Notice of Meetings. Except as otherwise provided by law, the certificate of incorporation, or these bylaws, written notice of each meeting of stockholders, annual or special, stating the place, if any, date, and time of the meeting, the means of remote communications, if any, by which stockholders and proxy holders may be deemed to be present in person and vote at such meeting, and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which such special meeting is called, shall be given to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting not less than ten (10) nor more than sixty (60) days before the date of the meeting.

2.5List of Stockholders. The officer in charge of the stock ledger of the corporation or the transfer agent shall prepare and make, at least ten (10) days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, and showing the address of each stockholder and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder. Such list shall be open to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting, for a period of at least ten (10) days prior to the meeting, (a) on a reasonably accessible electronic network, provided that the information required to gain access to such list is provided with the notice of the meeting, or (b) during ordinary business hours, at the principal place of business of the corporation. If the meeting is to be held at a place, then the list shall also be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting during the whole time thereof, and may be inspected by any stockholder who is present. If the meeting is to be held solely by means of remote communication, then the list shall also be open to the examination of any stockholder during the whole time of the meeting on a reasonably accessible electronic network, and the information required to gain access to such list shall be provided with the notice of the meeting.

2.6Organization and Conduct of Business. The Chairman of the Board or, in his or her absence, the Chief Executive Officer or President of the corporation or, in their absence, such person as the Board of Directors may have designated or, in the absence of such a person, such person as may be chosen by the holders of a majority of the shares entitled to vote who are present, in person or by proxy, shall call to order any meeting of the stockholders and act as chairman of the meeting. In the absence of the Secretary of the corporation, the secretary of the meeting shall be such person as the chairman of the meeting appoints.
-3-



The chairman of any meeting of stockholders shall determine the order of business and the procedure at the meeting, including such regulation of the manner of voting and the conduct of discussion as seems to him or her in order.
2.7Quorum. Except where otherwise provided by law, the certificate of incorporation of the corporation, or these bylaws, the holders of a majority of the voting power of the capital stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote, present in person or represented by proxy, shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at all meetings of the stockholders.
2.8Adjournments. If a quorum is not present or represented at any meeting of stockholders, a majority of the stockholders present in person or represented by proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote, though less than a quorum, or by any officer entitled to preside at such meeting, shall be entitled to adjourn such meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present or represented. When a meeting is adjourned to another place, date, or time, notice need not be given of the adjourned meeting if the place, date, and time thereof are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken; provided, however, that if the date of any adjourned meeting is more than thirty (30) days after the date for which the meeting was originally noticed, or if a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, written notice of the place, if any, date, time, and means of remote communications, if any, of the adjourned meeting shall be given in conformity herewith. At any adjourned meeting, any business may be transacted that might have been transacted at the original meeting.

2.9Voting Rights. Unless otherwise provided in the DGCL or certificate of incorporation of the corporation, each stockholder shall at every meeting of the stockholders be entitled to one vote for each share of the capital stock having voting power held by such stockholder. No holder of shares of the corporation’s common stock shall have the right to cumulative votes.

2.10Majority Vote. When a quorum is present at any meeting, the vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power of the capital stock and entitled to vote present in person or represented by proxy shall decide any question brought before such meeting, unless the question is one upon which by express provision of the statutes or of the certificate of incorporation of the corporation or of these bylaws, a different vote is required in which case such express provision shall govern and control the decision of such question.

2.11Record Date for Stockholder Notice and Voting. For purposes of determining the stockholders entitled to notice of, or to vote at, any meeting of stockholders or any adjournment thereof, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend or other distribution or allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any right in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the Board of Directors may fix, in advance, a record date, which shall not be more than sixty (60) days nor less than ten (10) days before the date of any such meeting nor more than sixty (60) days before any other action to which the record date relates. A determination of stockholders of record entitled to notice of or to vote at a
-4-



meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment of the meeting; provided, however, that the Board of Directors may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting. If the Board of Directors does not so fix a record date, the record date for determining stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall be at the close of business on the business day next preceding the day on which notice is given or, if notice is waived, at the close of business on the business day next preceding the day on which the meeting is held. The record date for determining stockholders for any other purpose shall be at the close of business on the day on which the Board of Directors adopts the resolution relating to such purpose.

2.12Proxies. Each stockholder entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders may authorize another person or persons to act for such stockholder by proxy, but no such proxy shall be voted or acted upon after three years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period. All proxies must be filed with the Secretary of the corporation at the beginning of each meeting in order to be counted in any vote at the meeting. Subject to the limitation set forth in the last clause of the first sentence of this Section 2.12, a duly executed proxy that does not state that it is irrevocable shall continue in full force and effect unless (a) revoked by the person executing it, before the vote pursuant to that proxy, by a writing delivered to the corporation stating that the proxy is revoked or by a subsequent proxy executed by, or attendance at the meeting and voting in person by, the person executing the proxy, or (b) written notice of the death or incapacity of the maker of that proxy is received by the corporation before the vote pursuant to that proxy is counted.

2.13Inspectors of Election. The corporation shall, in advance of any meeting of stockholders, appoint one or more inspectors of election to act at the meeting and make a written report thereof. The corporation may designate one or more persons to act as alternate inspectors to replace any inspector who fails to act. If no inspector or alternate is able to act at a meeting of stockholders, the person presiding at the meeting shall appoint one or more inspectors to act at the meeting. Each inspector, before entering upon the discharge of his or her duties, shall take and sign an oath faithfully to execute the duties of inspector with strict impartiality and according to the best of his or her ability.

2.14No Action Without a Meeting. No action shall be taken by the stockholders except at an annual or special meeting of stockholders called and noticed in the manner required by these bylaws. The stockholders may not in any circumstance take action by written consent.

ARTICLE 3
Directors

3.1Number, Election, Tenure and Qualifications. The number of directors that shall constitute the entire Board of Directors shall be fixed from time to time by resolution adopted by a majority of the directors of the corporation then in office.

3.2Director Nominations. At each annual meeting of the stockholders, directors shall be elected for that class of directors whose terms are then expiring, except as otherwise provided in Section 3.2, and each director so elected shall hold office until such director’s successor is duly elected and qualified or until such director’s earlier resignation, removal, death, or incapacity.

If a majority of the votes cast for a director are marked “against” or “withheld” in an uncontested election, the director shall promptly tender his or her irrevocable resignation for the Board of Directors’ consideration. If such director’s resignation is accepted by the Board of Directors, then the Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, may fill the resulting vacancy in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.2 or may decrease the size of the Board of Directors in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.1.

Subject to the rights of holders of any class or series of stock having a preference over the common stock as to dividends or upon liquidation, nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors must be (a) made by or at the direction of the Board of Directors (or any duly authorized committee thereof) or (b) made by any stockholder of record of the corporation entitled to vote for the election of directors at the applicable meeting who complies with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 3.2. Directors need not be stockholders. Such nominations, other than those made by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, shall be made pursuant to timely notice in writing to the Secretary of the corporation. To be timely, a stockholder’s notice shall be delivered by a nationally recognized courier service or mailed by first class United States mail, postage or delivery charges prepaid, and received at the principal executive offices of the corporation addressed to the attention of the Secretary of the corporation (i) in the case of an annual meeting of stockholders, not more than one hundred twenty (120) days nor less than ninety (90) days in advance of the anniversary of the date of the corporation’s proxy statement provided in connection with the previous year’s annual meeting of stockholders; provided, however, that in the event that no annual meeting was held in the previous year or the annual meeting is called for a date more than thirty (30) days before or after the anniversary date of the previous year’s annual meeting, notice by the stockholder must be received by the Secretary of the corporation not later than the close of business on the later of (A) the ninetieth (90th) day prior to such annual meeting and (B) the tenth (10th) day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made, and (ii) in the case of a special meeting of stockholders called for the purpose of electing directors, not later than the close of business on the tenth (10th) day following the day on which notice of the date of the special meeting was mailed or public disclosure of the date of the special meeting was made. Such stockholder’s notice to the Secretary shall set forth (a) as to each person whom the stockholder proposes to nominate for election or re-election as a director, (i) the name, age, business address, and residence address of the person, (ii) the principal occupation or employment of the person, (iii) the class, series, and number of shares of capital stock of the corporation that are owned beneficially by the person, (iv)  any other information relating to the person that is required to be disclosed in solicitations for proxies for election of directors pursuant to Section 14 of the 1934 Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, and (v) the nominee’s written consent to serve, if elected, and (b) as to the stockholder giving the notice, (i) the name and record address of the stockholder, (ii) the class, series, and number of shares of capital stock of the

corporation that are owned beneficially by the stockholder, and (iii) a description of all arrangements or understandings between such stockholder and each person the stockholder proposes for election or re-election as a director pursuant to which such proposed nomination is being made. The corporation may require any proposed nominee to furnish such other information as may reasonably be required by the corporation to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as a director of the corporation. No person shall be eligible for election as a director of the corporation unless nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth herein.
In connection with any annual meeting of the stockholders (or, if and as applicable, any special meeting of the stockholders), the Chairman of the Board (or such other person presiding at such meeting in accordance with these bylaws) shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that a nomination was not made in accordance with the foregoing procedure, and if he or she should so determine, he or she shall so declare to the meeting and the defective nomination shall be disregarded.
3.3Enlargement and Vacancies. Except as otherwise provided by the certificate of incorporation, subject to the rights of the holders of any series of preferred stock then outstanding, newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors or any vacancies in the Board of Directors resulting from death, resignation, retirement, disqualification, removal from office, or other cause shall be filled solely by a majority vote of the directors then in office, although less than a quorum, or by a sole remaining director. If there are no directors in office, then an election of directors may be held in the manner provided by statute. In the event of a vacancy in the Board of Directors, the remaining directors, except as otherwise provided by law, or by the certificate of incorporation or these bylaws, may exercise the powers of the full board until the vacancy is filled.
3.4Resignation and Removal. Any director may resign at any time upon written
notice to the corporation at its principal place of business addressed to the attention of the Chief
Executive Officer, the Secretary, the Chairman of the Board, or the Chair of the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board of Directors, who shall in turn notify the full Board of Directors (although failure to provide such notification to the full Board of Directors shall not impact the effectiveness of such resignation). Such resignation shall be effective upon receipt of such notice by one of the individuals designated above unless the notice specifies such resignation to be effective at some other time or upon the happening of some other event. Any director or the entire Board of Directors may be removed, with or without cause, by the holders of not less than two-thirds (2/3) of the voting power of the capital stock issued and outstanding then entitled to vote at an election of directors.

3.5Powers. The business of the corporation shall be managed by or under the direction of the Board of Directors, which may exercise all such powers of the corporation and do all such lawful acts and things as are not by statute or by the certificate of incorporation of the corporation or by these bylaws directed or required to be exercised or done by the stockholders.

At all meetings of the Board of Directors, a majority of directors then in office, shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business and the act of a majority of the directors present at any meeting at which there is a quorum shall be the act of the Board of Directors, except as may be otherwise specifically provided by law, as it presently exists or may hereafter be amended, or by these bylaws. If a quorum shall not be present at any meeting of the Board of Directors, a majority of the directors present thereat may adjourn the meeting from time to time, without notice other than announcement at the meeting, until a quorum shall be present.

3.11Action Without Meeting. Unless otherwise restricted by the certificate of incorporation of the corporation or these bylaws, any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof may be taken without a meeting, if all members of the Board of Directors or committee, as the case may be, consent

Any such committee, to the extent provided in the resolutions of the Board of Directors, shall have and may exercise all of the lawfully delegated powers and authority of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs of the corporation, and may authorize the seal of the corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it. Such committee or committees shall have such name or names as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the Board of Directors. Each committee shall keep regular minutes of its meetings and make such reports to the Board of Directors as the Board of Directors may request or the charter of such committee may then require.

ARTICLE 6
Indemnification and Insurance

6.1Indemnification of Officers and Directors. Each person who was or is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to or is involved (including, without limitation, as a witness) in any actual or threatened action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative (hereinafter a “proceeding”), by reason of the fact that he or she or a person of whom he or she is the legal representative is or was a director or officer of the corporation (or any predecessor), or is or was serving at the request of the corporation (or any predecessor) as a director, officer, employee, or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, limited liability company, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan sponsored or maintained by the corporation, or other enterprise (or any predecessors of such entities) (hereinafter an “Indemnitee”), shall be indemnified and held harmless by the corporation to the fullest extent authorized by the DGCL, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended, including, but not
-12-



limited to, Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent that such amendment permits the corporation to provide broader indemnification rights than said law permitted the corporation to provide prior to such amendment), or by other applicable law as then in effect, against all expense, liability and loss (including attorneys’ fees and related disbursements, judgments, fines, excise taxes or penalties under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended from time to time, penalties and amounts paid or to be paid in settlement) actually and reasonably incurred or suffered by such Indemnitee in connection therewith. Each person who is or was serving as a director, officer, employee, or agent of a subsidiary of the corporation shall be deemed to be serving, or have served, at the request of the corporation. The right to indemnification conferred in this Section 6.1 shall be a contract right.
Any indemnification (but not advancement of expenses) under this Article 6 (unless ordered by a court) shall be made by the corporation only as authorized in the specific case upon a determination that indemnification of the director or officer is proper in the circumstances because he or she has met the applicable standard of conduct set forth in the DGCL, as the same exists or hereafter may be amended (but, in the case of any such amendment, only to the extent that such amendment permits the corporation to provide broader indemnification rights than said law permitted the corporation to provide prior to such amendment). Such determination shall be made with respect to a person who is a director or officer at the time of such determination (a) by a majority vote of the directors who are not or were not parties to the proceeding in respect of which indemnification is being sought by Indemnitee (the “Disinterested Directors”), even though less than a quorum, (b) by a committee of Disinterested Directors designated by a majority vote of the Disinterested Directors, even though less than a quorum, (c) if there are no such Disinterested Directors, or if the Disinterested Directors so direct, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion to the Board of Directors, a copy of which shall be delivered to Indemnitee, or (d) by the stockholders.
6.2Indemnification of Others. This Article 6 does not limit the right of the corporation, to the extent and in the manner permitted by law, to indemnify and to advance expenses to persons other than those persons identified in Section 6.1 when and as authorized by the Board or by the action of a committee of the Board or designated officers of the corporation established by or designated in resolutions approved by the Board; provided, however, that the payment of expenses incurred by such a person in advance of the final disposition of the proceeding shall be made only upon receipt by the corporation of a written undertaking by such person to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such person is not entitled to be indemnified under this Article 6 or otherwise.
6.3Advance Payment. The right to indemnification under this Article 6 shall include the right to be paid by the corporation the expenses incurred in defending any such proceeding in advance of its final disposition, such advances to be paid by the corporation within thirty (30) days after the receipt by the corporation of a statement or statements from the claimant requesting such advance or advances from time to time; provided, however, that if the DGCL requires, the payment of such expenses incurred by a director or officer in his or her capacity as a director or officer (and not in any other capacity in which service was or is rendered by such
-13-



person while a director or officer, including, without limitation, service to an employee benefit plan) in advance of the final disposition of a proceeding, shall be made only upon delivery to the corporation of an undertaking by or on behalf of such director or officer to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified under Section 6.1 or otherwise.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless such right is acquired other than pursuant to this Article 6, no advance shall be made by the corporation to an officer of the corporation (except by reason of the fact that such officer is or was a director of the corporation, in which event this paragraph shall not apply) in any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative, or investigative, if a determination is reasonably and promptly made (a) by the Board of Directors by a majority vote of the Disinterested Directors, even though less than a quorum, or (b) by a committee of Disinterested Directors designated by majority vote of the Disinterested Directors, even though less than a quorum, or (c) if there are no Disinterested Directors or the Disinterested Directors so direct, by independent legal counsel in a written opinion to the Board of Directors, a copy of which shall be delivered to the claimant, that the facts known to the decision-making party at the time such determination is made demonstrate clearly and convincingly that such person acted in bad faith or in a manner that such person did not believe to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation.
6.4Right of Indemnitee to Bring Suit. If a claim for indemnification (following final disposition of such proceeding) or advancement of expenses under this Article 6 is not paid in full by the corporation within sixty (60) days after a written claim has been received by the corporation, except in the case of a claim for an advancement of expenses, in which case the applicable period shall be twenty (20) days, the Indemnitee may at any time thereafter bring suit against the corporation to recover the unpaid amount of the claim. If successful in whole or in part in any such suit, or in a suit brought by the corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the Indemnitee shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of prosecuting or defending such suit to the fullest extent permitted by law. In any suit brought by the Indemnitee to enforce a right to indemnification or to an advancement of expenses hereunder, or by the corporation to recover an advancement of expenses pursuant to the terms of an undertaking, the burden of proving that the Indemnitee is not entitled to be indemnified, or to such advancement of expenses, under this Article or otherwise shall be on the corporation.
6.5Non-Exclusivity and Survival of Rights; Amendments. The right to indemnification and the payment of expenses incurred in defending a proceeding in advance of its final disposition conferred in this Article 6 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other right which any person may have or hereafter acquire under any statute, provision of the certificate of incorporation of the corporation, bylaws, agreement, vote of stockholders or Disinterested Directors or otherwise, and shall continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation and shall inure to the benefit of the heirs, executors and administrators of such a person. Any repeal or modification of the provisions of this Article 6 shall not in any way diminish or adversely affect the rights of any director, officer, employee, or
-14-



agent of the corporation hereunder in respect of any occurrence or matter arising prior to any such repeal or modification.

6.6Insurance. The corporation may purchase and maintain insurance on its own behalf and on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee, or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust, employee benefit plan, or other enterprise against any expense, liability or loss asserted against such person and incurred by such person in any such capacity, or arising out of such person’s status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such expenses, liability or loss under the DGCL.

6.7Reliance. Persons who after the date of the adoption of this provision become or remain directors or officers of the corporation shall be conclusively presumed to have relied on the rights to indemnity, advance of expenses and other rights contained in this Article 6 in entering into or continuing such service. The rights to indemnification and to the advance of expenses conferred in this Article 6 shall apply to claims made against an Indemnitee arising out of acts or omissions that occurred or occur both prior and subsequent to the adoption hereof.

6.8Severability. If any word, clause, provision or provisions of this Article 6 shall be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever: (a) the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Article 6 (including, without limitation, each portion of any section or paragraph of this Article 6 containing any such provision held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, that is not itself held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable) shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby; and (b) to the fullest extent possible, the provisions of this Article 6 (including, without limitation, each such portion of any section or paragraph of this Article 6 containing any such provision held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable) shall be construed so as to give effect to the intent manifested by the provision held invalid, illegal or unenforceable.

Certificates shall be signed by, or in the name of the corporation by, the Chairman of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer, the President or a Vice President and by the Chief Financial Officer, the Treasurer or an Assistant Treasurer, or the Secretary or an Assistant Secretary of the corporation.

Within a reasonable time after the issuance or transfer of uncertificated stock, the corporation shall send or cause to be sent to the registered owner thereof a written notice containing the information required by the DGCL or a statement that the corporation will furnish without charge to each stockholder who so requests the powers, designations, preferences and relative participating, optional, or other special rights of each class of stock or series thereof and the qualifications, limitations, or restrictions of such preferences and/or rights.
7.2Signatures on Certificates. Any or all of the signatures on a certificate may be a facsimile. In case any officer, transfer agent or registrar who has signed or whose facsimile signature has been placed upon a certificate shall have ceased to be such officer, transfer agent or registrar before such certificate is issued, it may be issued by the corporation with the same effect as if he were such officer, transfer agent or registrar at the date of issue.
7.3Transfer of Stock. Upon surrender to the corporation or the transfer agent of the corporation of a certificate of shares duly endorsed or accompanied by proper evidence of succession, assignation or authority to transfer, and proper evidence of compliance of other conditions to rightful transfer, it shall be the duty of the corporation to issue a new certificate to the person entitled thereto, cancel the old certificate and record the transaction upon its books. Upon receipt of proper transfer instructions and proper evidence of compliance of other conditions to rightful transfer from the registered owner of uncertificated shares, such uncertificated shares shall be canceled and issuance of new equivalent uncertificated shares or certificated shares shall be made to the person entitled thereto and the transaction shall be recorded upon the books of the corporation.

7.4Registered Stockholders. The corporation shall be entitled to recognize the exclusive right of a person registered on its books as the owner of shares to receive dividends, and to vote as such owner, and to hold liable for calls and assessments a person registered on its books as the owner of shares, and shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to or interest in such share or shares on the part of any other person, whether or not it shall have express or other notice thereof, except as otherwise provided by the laws of Delaware.

7.5Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Certificates. The corporation may direct that a new certificate or certificates be issued to replace any certificate or certificates theretofore issued by the corporation alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the person claiming the certificate of stock to be lost, stolen or destroyed and on such terms and conditions as the corporation may require. When authorizing the issue of a new certificate or certificates, the corporation may, in its discretion and as a condition precedent to the issuance thereof, require the owner of the lost, stolen or destroyed certificate or certificates, or his or her legal representative, to advertise the same in such manner as it shall require, to indemnify the corporation in such manner as it may require, and/or to give the corporation a bond or other adequate security in such sum as it may direct as indemnity against any claim that may be made against the corporation with respect to the certificate alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

WHEREAS, SYNNEX and Concentrix have entered into a Separation and Distribution Agreement, dated as of November 30, 2020 (the “Separation and Distribution Agreement”), providing for the separation of the SYNNEX Group from the Concentrix Group;
WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of the Separation and Distribution Agreement, SYNNEX will, among other things, (i) contribute the Concentrix Assets to Concentrix and its Subsidiaries, (ii) cause Concentrix and its subsidiaries to assume the Concentrix Liabilities, and (iii) effect the Distribution;
WHEREAS, for U.S. Federal Income Tax purposes, it is intended that the Distribution shall qualify as a transaction that is generally tax free pursuant to Sections 355(a) and 368(a)(1)(D) of the Code;
WHEREAS, as of the date hereof, SYNNEX is the common parent of an affiliated group of corporations, including Concentrix, which has elected to file consolidated U.S. federal income Tax Returns;
WHEREAS, as a result of the Distribution, Concentrix and its subsidiaries will cease to be members of the affiliated group (as that term is defined in Section 1504 of the Code) of which SYNNEX is the common parent (the “Deconsolidation”);
WHEREAS, the parties desire to provide for and agree upon the allocation between the parties of liabilities for Taxes arising prior to, as a result of, and subsequent to the Distribution, and to provide for and agree upon other matters relating to Taxes;
