Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
As previously disclosed by Concentrix Corporation (“Concentrix” or the “Company”), on March 29, 2023, Concentrix and OSYRIS S.à r.l., a private limited liability company (société à responsabilité limitée) incorporated under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Concentrix (“Purchaser”), entered into a binding put option letter agreement (the “Put Option”) with certain stockholders (the “Beneficiaries”) of Marnix Lux SA, a public limited liability company (société anonyme) incorporated under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (“Webhelp Parent”) and the parent company of the Webhelp business. Pursuant to the Put Option, Concentrix and Purchaser committed to acquire all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Webhelp Parent (the “Shares”) from the holders thereof (the “Sellers”), subject to the terms and conditions of a Share Purchase and Contribution Agreement (the “SPA”). Following the completion of the required works council consultations, the Beneficiaries exercised the Put Option and, on June 12, 2023, Concentrix, Purchaser, Webhelp Parent and the Sellers entered into the SPA.
A description of the material terms of the SPA is set forth under Item 1.01 of the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 31, 2023, which is incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference. Such description of the SPA is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of SPA, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated in this Item 1.01 by reference.
Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
The information provided in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and Item 3.02 of the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K that was filed with the SEC on March 31, 2023 is incorporated in this Item 3.02 by reference.

Additional Information and Where to Find It
In connection with the proposed transaction between the Company and Webhelp, the Company plans to file relevant materials with the SEC, including a proxy statement on Schedule 14A. Promptly after filing its definitive proxy statement with the SEC, the Company will mail the definitive proxy statement to each stockholder entitled to vote at the special meeting relating to the transaction. This communication does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities or a solicitation of any vote or approval. INVESTORS AND STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO CAREFULLY READ THE PROXY STATEMENT (INCLUDING ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS THERETO AND ANY DOCUMENTS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE THEREIN) AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE TRANSACTION THAT THE COMPANY WILL FILE WITH THE SEC WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE TRANSACTION AND THE PARTIES TO THE TRANSACTION. The definitive proxy statement, the preliminary proxy statement, and other relevant materials in connection with the transaction (when they become available) and any other documents filed by the Company with the SEC, may be obtained free of charge at the SEC’s website ( and the Company’s website at
Participants in the Solicitation
The Company and its directors and executive officers may be deemed, under SEC rules, to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from the Company’s stockholders in connection with the proposed transaction. Information regarding the interests of such individuals in the proposed transaction will be included in the proxy statement relating to such transaction when it is filed with the SEC. You may obtain information about the Company’s executive officers and directors in the Company’s definitive proxy statement for its 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, which was filed with the SEC on February 9, 2023. To the extent holdings of such participants in

the Company’s securities are not reported, or have changed since the amounts described in the proxy statement for the 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, such changes have been reflected on Statements of Change in Ownership on Form 4 filed with the SEC. These documents may be obtained free of charge from the SEC’s website at and Concentrix’ website at
Information for U.S. Persons holding Marnix Lux Shares
This proposed business combination is made for the securities of a non-U.S. company. The offer is subject to disclosure and procedural requirements in France and other non-U.S. jurisdictions that are different from those of the United States. The proposed transaction will be structured to comply with the securities laws and regulations in France, the United States and other applicable jurisdictions that are applicable to transactions of this type.
It may be difficult for U.S. holders of Marnix Lux shares to enforce their rights and any claims they may have arising under the federal securities laws of the United States, since Marnix Lux is incorporated in a non-U.S. jurisdiction, and some or all of its officers and directors may be residents of a non-U.S. jurisdiction. U.S. holders may not be able to sue a non-U.S. company or its officers or directors in a non-U.S. court for violations of the U.S. securities laws. Further, it may be difficult to compel a non-U.S. company and its affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court's judgment.
