Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On January 11, 2019, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of ServiceSource International, Inc. (the “Company” or “ServiceSource”) increased the size of the Board from seven to eight and appointed John R. Ferron to the Company’s Board, effective immediately. Mr. Ferron’s term will expire at the Company’s 2019 annual meeting of stockholders, and he will serve as a member of the Company’s Audit Committee.

Mr. Ferron will receive cash compensation as a non-employee director in accordance with the Company’s director compensation program as described in the Company’s proxy statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 4, 2018. In addition, he will receive an initial grant of 75,000 restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and an award of stock options to purchase up to 25,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. Both the RSUs and the stock options will vest over two years, with 50% of each award vesting on each of the first and second anniversaries of the grant date. Vesting of the awards will be subject to Mr. Ferron’s continued service with the Company through each relevant date. The Company also entered into an indemnification agreement with Mr. Ferron in the same form as the Company’s standard form indemnification agreement with its other directors.

The Board determined that Mr. Ferron is an “independent director” as defined by Rule 10A-3 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and by the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Ferron and any other person pursuant to which he was selected as a director, nor are there any transactions, or proposed transactions, to which ServiceSource was or is to be a party and in which Mr. Ferron had or will have a direct or indirect material interest that are required to be disclosed under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K, nor are there any family relationships among Mr. Ferron and any other directors or officers of the Company.
