TD SYNNEX Corporation
Notice of Restricted Stock Unit Award

Payment for Restricted Stock UnitsNo cash payment is required for the Restricted Stock Units you receive. You are receiving the Restricted Stock Units in consideration for Services rendered by you.
Governing PlanThe Restricted Stock Units you are receiving are granted pursuant and subject in all respects to the applicable provisions of the Plan, which is incorporated herein by reference. Terms not otherwise defined in this Restricted Stock Unit Agreement (this “Agreement”) have meanings ascribed to them in the Plan.
The Restricted Stock Units that you are receiving will vest as shown in the Notice of Restricted Stock Unit Award.
No additional Restricted Stock Units vest after your Service as an Employee or a Consultant has terminated for any reason unless accelerated by the Compensation Committee as provided under the Forfeiture section below.
TD SYNNEX Corporation
Restricted Stock Unit Agreement

If your Service terminates for any reason, then your Restricted Stock Units will be forfeited to the extent that they have not vested before the termination date and do not vest as a result of termination, subject to the right reserved by the Compensation Committee (or its authorized delegate) pursuant to Section 3(d)(viii) of the Plan to accelerate vesting of all or a portion of any unvested portion of your Restricted Stock Units other than any Restricted Stock Units with a grant date less than three (3) months prior to your retirement upon your retirement (generally, termination of your employment other than for Cause, Disability or death where you have attained at least the age of 55 and have completed at least five (5) years of continuous Service for the Company or its Affiliates for some vesting, with the percentage of vesting potentially increasing with longer continuous Service and your age) in its sole discretion and subject to such additional conditions as the Compensation Committee or its authorized delegate may impose, including but not limited to execution of a standard release of claims and compliance with certain restrictive covenants.
For purposes of this Agreement, “Cause” means (i) commission of a felony, an act involving moral turpitude, or an act constituting common law fraud, and which 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 person or persons to whom you report or (iii) intentional breach of Company confidential information obligations which has an adverse effect on the Company or its affiliates or stockholders. For these purposes, 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.
Any forfeited unvested Restricted Stock Units will immediately be cancelled. You receive no payment for Restricted Stock Units 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. The date that Service ends shall be determined without regard to any applicable period related to notice of termination, compensation in lieu of notice, termination or severance pay, or any claim by you to such notice, compensation or pay (whether express, implied, contractual, statutory or arising otherwise under applicable law), provided that, in the case of your resignation, the date of termination may not be earlier than the date that notice of termination of Service was first provided by you to the Company.

Leaves of Absence
For purposes of this Award, your Service does not terminate 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.
Nature of Restricted Stock UnitsYour Restricted Stock Units are mere bookkeeping entries. They represent only the Company’s unfunded and unsecured promise to issue Shares on a future date. As a holder of Restricted Stock Units, you have no rights other than the rights of a general creditor of the Company.
No Voting Rights or DividendsYour Restricted Stock Units carry neither voting rights nor rights to dividends. You, or your estate or heirs, have no rights as a stockholder of the Company unless and until your Restricted Stock Units are settled by issuing Shares. No adjustments will be made for dividends or other rights if the applicable record date occurs before your Shares are issued, except as described in the Plan.
Restricted Stock Units NontransferableYou may not sell, transfer, assign, pledge or otherwise dispose of any Restricted Stock Units. For instance, you may not use your Restricted Stock Units as security for a loan. If you attempt to do any of these things, your Restricted Stock Units will immediately become invalid.

Settlement of Restricted Stock Units
Each of your vested Restricted Stock Units will be settled when it vests; provided, however, that settlement of each Restricted Stock Unit will be deferred to the first permissible trading day for the Shares, if later than the applicable vesting date.
For purposes of this Agreement, “permissible trading day” means a day that satisfies all of the following requirements: (a) the exchange on which the Shares are traded is open for trading on that day; (b) you are permitted to sell Shares on that day without incurring liability under section 16(b) of the Exchange Act, (c) either (i) you are not in possession of material non-public information that would make it illegal for you to sell Shares on that day under Rule 10b-5 under the Exchange Act or (ii) Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act would apply to the sale; (d) you are permitted to sell Shares on that day under such written insider trading policy as may have been adopted by the Company; and (e) you are not prohibited from selling Shares on that day by a written agreement between you and the Company or a third party.
Settlement of Restricted Share Units shall be in the form of Shares. At the time of settlement, you will receive one Share for each vested Restricted Stock Unit; provided, however, that no fractional Shares will be issued or delivered pursuant to the Plan or this Agreement, and the Committee will determine whether cash will be paid in lieu of any fractional Share or whether such fractional Share and any rights thereto will be canceled, terminated or otherwise eliminated. In addition, the Shares are issued to you subject to the condition that the issuance of the Shares not violate any law or regulation.

Withholding Taxes and Stock Withholding
Regardless of any action the Company or the Subsidiary or Affiliate employing you (your “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 Award, including the settlement of the Restricted Stock Units, the subsequent sale of Shares acquired pursuant to such settlement and the receipt of any dividends; and (2) do not commit to structure the terms of the Award or any aspect of the Restricted Stock Units to reduce or eliminate your liability for Tax-Related Items.
Prior to the settlement of your Restricted Stock Units, you shall pay or make adequate arrangements satisfactory 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 issued to you when your Restricted Stock Units are settled 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, either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on your behalf pursuant to this authorization), or (c) any other arrangement approved by the Company. The Fair Market Value of these Shares, determined as of the effective date when taxes otherwise would have been withheld in cash, will be applied as a credit against the withholding taxes. Finally, you shall 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, and your rights to the Shares shall be forfeited if you do not comply with such obligations on or before December 31 of the calendar year in which the applicable vesting date for the Restricted Stock Units occurs.
Restrictions on ResaleYou 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 as long as your Service continues and for such period of time after the termination of your Service as the Company may specify.
