On March 3, 2022, LivePerson, Inc. (the “Company”) sent an email to its employees in connection with the Company’s 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. A copy of such communication can be found below.

Hello LivePersons:

You may have seen that a well-known investment fund called Starboard has become an investor in LPSN. Because of Starboard's high profile, we may see some continued media interest in this investment.

As with any shareholder, we welcome Starboard’s interest, and it is ultimately a signal of confidence in the value of our company. It is also worth noting that it is common for public companies, including some of the best-known in Tech, to see interest and activity from this type of investor.

As is common for this type of investor when holding a significant equity stake, Starboard has indicated that it will propose three individuals to stand for election to our Board of Directors at our 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders later this year. Our Board has an established process in place to evaluate director nominees, and will review and consider Starboard’s director candidates accordingly.

John Collins and I, along with Richard Gu, SVP Investor Relations, have opened a communication channel with Starboard and we will be open to their thoughts and feedback, as we are open to all shareholder feedback.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment, innovation and great work to create the foundations for our continued and scalable growth. I look forward to a great 2022!

If you receive any external inquiries regarding this topic please refer them to Richard Gu. Information about our annual meeting of stockholders can be found Here.
