Item 5.02. Departure of Directors.

Duck Creek Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) is a party to a stockholders’ agreement (the “Stockholders Agreement”), dated as of August 14, 2020, among the Company, Accenture LLP (“Accenture LLP”), Accenture Holdings BV (“Accenture BV” and, together with Accenture LLP, the “Accenture Investors”) and Disco (Guernsey) Holdings L.P. Inc. (the “Apax Investor”). Pursuant to the terms of the Stockholders Agreement, the Accenture Investors had a right to nominate two directors to the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company so long as the Accenture Investors continued to meet certain ownership thresholds. As a result of Accenture LLP selling a portion of the Company’s common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), it held on November 13, 2020, the Accenture Investors own 19.6% of Common Stock. By the terms of the Stockholders’ Agreement, the Accenture Investors now have the right to nominate only one member of the Board.

As such, Mr. Domingo Miron, as one of the directors previously nominated by the Accenture Investors, notified the Company that he was resigning from the Board, effective as of November 12, 2020. Mr. Miron’s resignation from his position as a director was not the result of any disagreements between Mr. Miron and the Company on any matters relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.

Item 8.01. Other Events.

On November 13, 2020, the Apax Investor and Accenture Investors completed the previously-announced registered public secondary offering (the “Offering”) of 8,000,000 shares of Common Stock at an offering price of $41.00 per share, pursuant to the Company’s registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333- 249954). On August 12, 2020, the Company filed a prospectus dated August 10, 2020 with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale of the shares of Common Stock by the Apax Investor and the Accenture Investors.

On November 11, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing the pricing of the Offering. A copy of such press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated into this Item 8.01 by reference.
