Introductory Note

 

As previously disclosed, on May 6, 2022, ServiceSource International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Concentrix Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and Concentrix Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Acquisition Sub”). The Merger Agreement provides that, subject to its terms and conditions, Acquisition Sub will merge with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. On June 17, 2022, the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a definitive proxy statement for the solicitation of proxies in connection with the special meeting of the Company’s stockholders, to be held on July 20, 2022, for purposes of voting on, among other things, matters necessary to complete the Merger (the “Proxy Statement”). As described in the Proxy Statement, lawsuits have been filed against the Company and the members of the board of directors of the Company related to the Merger. Since the Company filed the Proxy Statement, additional lawsuits have been filed and demand letters received by the Company. The allegations contained in these additional lawsuits and demand letters generally repeat the allegations made in the lawsuits previously disclosed in the Proxy Statement, copies of which were attached to the Proxy Statement.

 

While the Company believes that the disclosures set forth in the Proxy Statement comply fully with applicable law, the Company has determined to voluntarily supplement the Proxy Statement with various disclosures. These disclosures are provided in this Current Report on Form 8-K. Nothing in this Current Report on Form 8-K will be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable laws of any of the disclosures set forth herein. These disclosures should be read in connection with the Proxy Statement, which should be read in its entirety. Defined terms used but not defined herein have the meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement. Without agreeing in any way that the disclosures below are material or otherwise required by law, the Company makes the following amended and supplemental disclosures:

The disclosure on page 8 of the Proxy Statement in the section captioned “Summary—Legal Proceedings Regarding the Merger” is hereby supplemented by adding a paragraph after the last paragraph as follows:

Using publicly available information obtained from SEC filings, Wall Street research analyst consensus estimates and other data sources as of May 5, 2022, Centerview calculated, for each selected ServiceSource comparison companies the following figures, ratios and multiples: (i) market value of common equity (determined using the treasury stock method and taking into account outstanding in-the-money options, other equity awards and other convertible securities, as applicable), (ii) enterprise value (calculated as the market value of common equity determined using the treasury stock method and taking into account outstanding in-the-money options, other equity awards and other convertible securities, as applicable, plus debt and less cash, after giving effect to certain adjustments for minority interest and contingent consideration), (iii) projected revenue growth for the calendar year 2021 to calendar year 2022, (iv) projected revenue for the calendar year 2021 to calendar year 2022, and (v) enterprise value as a multiple of revenue. These analyses resulted in a median revenue growth percentage of 4% and a median multiple of enterprise value to projected revenue for calendar year 2022 of 0.6x, in each case, for such selected ServiceSource comparison companies.

The disclosure on page 56 of the Proxy Statement in the section captioned “The Merger—Opinion of ServiceSource’s Financial Advisor—Discounted Cash Flow Analysis” is hereby supplemented by revising the first and second full paragraphs on page 56 in its entirety as follows:

 

In performing this analysis, Centerview calculated an implied per share equity range for ServiceSource Common Stock by discounting to present value as of March 31, 2022 using discount rates ranging from 13.25% to 15.50% (reflecting Centerview’s analysis of ServiceSource’s weighted average cost of capital), the forecasted unlevered free cash flows of ServiceSource based on the Forecasts during the period beginning the second quarter of 2022, and ending in December 2025 and extrapolation beginning the first quarter of 2026, and ending in December 2031, and the forecasted use of approximately $340 million of estimated federal net operating loss carryforwards through 2034. The implied terminal value of ServiceSource at the end of the forecast period was estimated by using perpetuity growth rates ranging from 0% to 3.0%. For purposes of this analysis, stock-based compensation was treated as a cash expense.

Based on its analysis, Centerview calculated a range of implied enterprise values of ServiceSource. Centerview subtracted from this range of implied enterprise values ServiceSource’s net debt of approximately $20 million as of March 31, 2022, to derive a range of implied equity values for ServiceSource. Centerview then divided this range of implied equity values by ServiceSource’s fully diluted shares outstanding (calculated based on approximately 99.9 million shares of common stock outstanding, 6.9 million nonvested restricted stock units, 2.1 million nonvested performance stock units and, using the treasury stock method, the dilutive impact of approximately 1.9 million outstanding options with a weighted average exercise price of $2.16) as of May 4, 2022 as set forth in the Internal Data, to derive a range of implied values of ServiceSource Common Stock of $1.38 to $1.86 per share. Centerview then compared this range to the $1.50 per Share in cash, without interest, proposed to be paid to the holders of ServiceSource Common Stock (other than the Excluded Shares) pursuant to the Merger Agreement.

 

The disclosure on page 56 of the Proxy Statement in the section captioned “The Merger—Opinion of ServiceSource’s Financial Advisor—Other Factors” is hereby supplemented by revising the second bullet on page 56 in its entirety as follows:

 

·Premiums Paid Analysis: Centerview reviewed the control premiums paid or payable in certain change of control transactions involving 118 announced and completed transactions involving publicly traded target companies in the United States for which premium data was available in order to compare the premium paid over ServiceSource’s present and historical share prices to that paid in past transactions (for transactions valued between $100 million and $500 million, with cash consideration and completed within the last ten years). For each such transaction, Centerview calculated the premiums in this analysis by comparing the per share acquisition price in each transaction to the closing price of the target company’s common stock for the date one week and 30 days prior to the date on which the trading price of the target’s common stock was perceived to be affected by a potential transaction. Based on the analysis above and other considerations that Centerview deemed relevant in its professional judgment, Centerview applied a range of 15% to 60% to ServiceSource Common Stock price of $1.04 as of May 5, 2022, which resulted in an implied price range of $1.20 to $1.66 per share of ServiceSource Common Stock; and

 

The disclosure on page 59 of the Proxy Statement in the section captioned “The Merger—Projections Prepared by ServiceSource’s Management” is hereby supplemented by revising the first full paragraph on page 59 in its entirety as follows:

 

The below table present a summary of the ServiceSource Projections, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures, other than revenue (dollars in millions):

The disclosure on page 66 of the Proxy Statement in the section captioned “The Merger—Legal Proceedings Regarding the Merger” is hereby supplemented by adding a paragraph after the third full paragraph as follows:

 

Since ServiceSource filed this Proxy Statement on June 17, 2022, additional lawsuits have been filed and demand letters received.
