____________________________        By:__________________________________




    No cash payment is required for the Shares that you are receiving. You are receiving the Shares as consideration for Services rendered by you.


    The Shares that you are receiving are granted pursuant and subject in all respects to the applicable provisions of the Concentrix Corporation 2020 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), which is incorporated herein by reference. Terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement have meanings ascribed to them in the Plan.


    The Shares that you are receiving will vest as shown in the Notice of Restricted Stock Award.

    Other than as set forth in Section 6, no additional shares vest after your Service as an Employee or a Consultant has terminated for any reason.


    Unvested Shares will be considered “Restricted Shares.” You may not sell, transfer, assign, pledge or otherwise dispose of Restricted Shares without the written consent of the Company, except as provided in the next sentence. You may transfer Restricted Shares to your spouse, children or grandchildren or to a trust established by you for the benefit of yourself or your spouse, children or grandchildren. However, a transferee of Restricted Shares must agree in writing on a form prescribed by the Company to be bound by all provisions of this Agreement.


    If your Service terminates for any reason other than as set forth in Section 6, then your Shares will be forfeited to the extent that they have not vested before the termination date and do not vest as a result of termination. This means that the Restricted Shares will immediately revert to the Company. You receive no payment for Restricted Shares that are forfeited. The Company determines when your Service terminates for this purpose and all purposes under the Plan, and its determinations are conclusive and binding on all persons.

If your employment with the Company terminates as a result of an Involuntary Termination at any time within twenty-four (24) months after a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), then all unvested Restricted Shares will immediately vest.

For purposes of this Section 6:

(a) “Involuntary Termination” means, without your express written consent, (i) a reduction by the Company of your base salary or target cash incentive opportunity as in effect immediately prior to such reduction, (ii) the relocation of your principal place of employment to a facility or a location more than fifty (50) miles from your current location, (iii) any purported termination of your employment by the Company that is not for Cause or by reason of death or disability or (iv) the failure of the Company to obtain the assumption of the RSUs by any successor to the Company.

(b) “Cause” means (i) commission of a felony, an act involving moral turpitude, or an act constituting common law fraud, and that has a material adverse effect on the business or affairs of the Company or its affiliates or stockholders, (ii) intentional or willful misconduct or refusal to follow the lawful instructions of the Board of Directors or the Chief Executive Officer of the Company or (iii) intentional breach of Company confidential information obligations that has an adverse effect on the Company or its affiliates or stockholders. No act or failure to act shall be considered “intentional or willful” unless it is done, or omitted to be done, in bad faith without a reasonable belief that the action or omission is in the best interests of the Company.


    For purposes of this Award, your Service does not terminate and your vesting will continue when you go on a military leave, a sick leave or another bona fide leave of absence, if the leave of absence was approved by the Company in writing and if continued crediting of Service is required by the terms of the leave or by applicable law. But your Service terminates when the approved leave ends, unless you immediately return to active work.

    If you go on a leave of absence of more than eight (8) weeks, then the vesting schedule specified in the Notice of Restricted Stock Award may be adjusted in accordance with the Company’s leave of absence policy or the terms of your leave. If you commence working on a part-time basis, then the vesting schedule specified in the Notice of Restricted Stock Award may be adjusted in accordance with the Company’s part-time work policy or the terms of an agreement between you and the Company pertaining to your part-time schedule.


    The certificates for Restricted Shares have stamped on them a special legend referring to the forfeiture restrictions. In addition to or in lieu of imposing the legend, the Company may hold the certificates in escrow. As your vested percentage increases, you may request (at
- 2 -

reasonable intervals) that the Company release to you a non-legended certificate for your vested shares.


    During the period of time between the date of grant and the date the Shares become vested, you shall have all the rights of a shareholder with respect to the Shares except for the right to transfer the Shares, as set forth in Section 4. Accordingly, you shall have the right to vote the Shares and to receive any cash dividends paid with respect to the Shares.


    Regardless of any action the Company and/or the Subsidiary or Affiliate employing you (the “Employer”) takes with respect to any or all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, payment on account or other tax-related withholding (“Tax-Related Items”), you acknowledge that the ultimate liability for all Tax-Related Items legally due by you is and remains your responsibility and that the Company and/or your Employer (1) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Shares received under this Award, including the award or vesting of such Shares, the subsequent sale of Shares under this Award and the receipt of any dividends; and (2) do not commit to structure the terms of the Award to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items.

    No Shares will be released to you unless you have paid or made arrangements acceptable to the Company and/or your Employer to satisfy all withholding and payment on account obligations of the Company and/or your Employer. In this regard, you authorize the Company and/or your Employer to withhold all applicable Tax-Related Items legally payable by you from your wages or other cash compensation paid to you by the Company and/or your Employer. With the Company’s consent, these arrangements may also include, if permissible under local law, (a) withholding Shares that otherwise would be delivered to you when they vest having a Fair Market Value equal to the amount necessary to satisfy the maximum legally required withholding amount, (b) having the Company withhold taxes from the proceeds of the sale of the Shares, or (c) any other arrangement approved by the Company. The fair market value of the Shares you surrender, determined as of the date when taxes otherwise would have been withheld in cash, will be applied as credit against the withholding taxes. Finally, you will pay to the Company or your Employer any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or your Employer may be required to withhold as a result of your participation in the Plan or your acquisition of Shares that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to deliver the Shares if you fail to comply with your obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items as described in this section.


    You agree not to sell any Shares at a time when applicable laws, Company policies or an agreement between the Company and its underwriters prohibit a sale. This restriction will apply
- 3 -

as long as your Service continues and for such period of time after the termination of your Service as the Company may specify.


    Neither your Award nor this Agreement gives you the right to be employed or retained by the Company or a subsidiary of the Company in any capacity. The Company and its subsidiaries reserve the right to terminate your Service at any time, with or without cause.


    In the event of a stock split, a stock dividend or a similar change in Company stock, or an extraordinary dividend, or a merger or a reorganization of the Company, the forfeiture provision of Section 5 will apply to all new, substitute or additional securities or other properties to which you are entitled by reason of your ownership of the shares.

    Any notice required or permitted under this Agreement will be given in writing and will be deemed effectively given upon the earliest of personal delivery, receipt or the third (3rd) full day following mailing with postage and fees prepaid, addressed to the other party hereto at the address last known in the Company’s records or at such other address as such party may designate by ten (10) days’ advance written notice to the other party hereto.

    This Agreement will be interpreted and enforced under the laws of the State of Delaware (without regard to their choice-of-law provisions).

    For purposes of litigating any dispute that arises directly or indirectly from the relationship of the parties evidenced by this Award or this Agreement, the parties hereby submit to and consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the State of California and agree that such litigation will be conducted only in the courts of Alameda County, California or the federal courts of the United States for the Northern District of California, and no other courts, where this grant is made and/or to be performed.


    The text of this Plan is incorporated in this Agreement by reference. All capitalized terms used in this Agreement but not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Plan. This Agreement and the Plan constitute the entire understanding between you and the Company regarding this Award. Any prior agreements, commitments or negotiations concerning this Award are superseded. This Agreement may be amended by the Committee without your consent; however, if any such amendment would materially impair your rights or obligations
- 4 -

under this Agreement, this Agreement may be amended only by another written agreement signed by you and the Company.


    Except as otherwise provided in the Plan or this Agreement, every term of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, legatees, legal representatives, successors, transferees and assigns.


    You understand and acknowledge that (i) the Plan is entirely discretionary, (ii) the Company and your Employer have reserved the right to amend, suspend or terminate the Plan at any time, (iii) the grant of your Award does not in any way create any contractual or other right to receive additional grants of awards (or benefits in lieu of awards) at any time or in any amount and (iv) all determinations with respect to any additional grants, including (without limitation) the times when awards will be granted, the number of Shares subject to the awards, and the vesting schedule, will be at the sole discretion of the Company.
The value of this Award shall be an extraordinary item of compensation outside the scope of your employment contract, if any, and shall not be considered a part of your normal or expected compensation for purposes of calculating severance, resignation, redundancy or end-of-service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, pension or retirement benefits or similar payments.
You understand and acknowledge that participation in the Plan ceases upon termination of your Service for any reason, except as may explicitly be provided otherwise in the Plan or this Agreement.
You hereby authorize and direct your Employer to disclose to the Company or any Subsidiary any information regarding your employment, the nature and amount of your compensation and the fact and conditions of your participation in the Plan, as your Employer deems necessary or appropriate to facilitate the administration of the Plan.
You consent to the collection, use and transfer of personal data as described in this subsection. You understand and acknowledge that the Company, your Employer and the Company’s other Subsidiaries hold certain personal information regarding you for the purpose of managing and administering the Plan, including (without limitation) your name, home address, telephone number, date of birth, social insurance number, salary, nationality, job title, any Shares or directorships held in the Company and details of all awards or any other entitlements to Shares awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in your favor (the “Data”). You further understand and acknowledge that the Company and/or its Subsidiaries will transfer Data among themselves as necessary for the purpose of implementation, administration and management of your participation in the Plan and that the Company and/or any Subsidiary may each further transfer Data to any third party assisting the Company in the implementation,

You authorize such recipients to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer Data, in electronic or other form, for the purpose of administering your participation in the Plan, including a transfer to any broker or other third party with whom you elect to deposit Shares acquired under the Plan of such Data as may be required for the administration of the Plan and/or the subsequent holding of Shares on your behalf. You may, at any time, view the Data, require any necessary modifications of Data or withdraw the consents set forth in this subsection by contacting the People Solutions Department of the Company in writing.
