Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 30, 2024, Twilio Inc. (“we,” “us,” “our,” the “Company” and other similar terms) entered into a cooperation agreement (the “Cooperation Agreement”) with Sachem Head Capital Management LP and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “Sachem Head”).

Pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement, the Company has appointed Andy J. Stafman to the board of directors (the “Board”) of the Company as a Class II director, effective immediately, with an initial term expiring at the Company’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2024 Annual Meeting”). The Company also agreed to nominate Mr. Stafman for election at the 2024 Annual Meeting. In connection with Mr. Stafman’s appointment, the Company has increased the size of the Board from nine to ten members and the size of Class II of the Board from three to four directors.

The Cooperation Agreement provides for customary director replacement rights, pursuant to which the Company and Sachem Head have agreed to cooperate to select a successor director in the event Mr. Stafman ceases to serve as a director. The Company’s obligations with respect to, among other things, the appointment of Mr. Stafman, the nomination of Mr. Stafman for election at the 2024 Annual Meeting, and the replacement of Mr. Stafman upon departure from the Board terminate in certain circumstances, including if Sachem Head’s aggregate net long position in the Company falls below 50% of its beneficial ownership of the Company’s outstanding shares of Class A common stock as of the date of the Cooperation Agreement.

The Cooperation Agreement will remain effective until the later of (i) 30 calendar days after the date on which Mr. Stafman (or any replacement director) has ceased to serve on the Board and (ii) one calendar day following the conclusion of the Company’s 2025 annual meeting of stockholders.

Pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement, Sachem Head has agreed to certain standstill, voting and confidentiality commitments. The Cooperation Agreement also contains a customary mutual non-disparagement provision.

The foregoing description does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Cooperation Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.


Item 5.02

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

The information set forth in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference.

On March 30, 2024, Andy J. Stafman was appointed to the Board as a Class II director, effective immediately. Mr. Stafman will serve until the 2024 Annual Meeting or until his successor has been duly elected and qualified, or until his earlier death, resignation or removal.

There is no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Stafman and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Stafman was appointed as a director, other than with respect to the matters referred to in Item 1.01. Furthermore, there are no family relationships between Mr. Stafman and any other director or executive officer of the Company and there are no transactions between Mr. Stafman and the Company that would be required to be reported under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Mr. Stafman will participate in the Company’s standard non-employee director compensation arrangements. Under the terms of those arrangements, Mr. Stafman will receive, among other things: (i) annual compensation for serving on the Board and any applicable committees thereof pursuant to the Company’s non-employee director

compensation policy, substantially as described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and (ii) an initial grant of restricted stock units with a value of approximately $575,000 that vests annually over three years subject to continued service.

The Company will also enter into a standard form of indemnification agreement with Mr. Stafman (the “Indemnification Agreement”). The Indemnification Agreement provides, among other things, that the Company will indemnify Mr. Stafman, under the circumstances and to the extent provided therein, for certain expenses which he may be required to pay in connection with certain claims to which he may be made a party by reason of his position as a director of the Company, and otherwise to the fullest extent permitted under Delaware law, the Company’s certificate of incorporation and bylaws.

The information furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as may be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
