NOTICE OF VIRTUAL FORMAT OPTION

TO BE HELD ON MAY 19, 2020
May 7, 2020
We hope this letter finds you and your loved ones well. We are writing because, due to health and safety considerations related to the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) and to prioritize the health and well-being of meeting participants, the Board of Directors (the Board) of Conduent Incorporated (the Company) has determined to provide a virtual format option for attendance at the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the Annual Meeting).
As discussed in the Companys previously distributed proxy materials related to the Annual Meeting, at the meeting, shareholders are being asked to elect seven directors, ratify the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as its independent registered public accounting firm for 2020, approve, on a advisory basis, the 2019 compensation of its named executive officers, and act upon such other business as may properly come before the meeting (we are not aware of any such other business at this time). The Company urges its shareholders of record to utilize the Annual Meeting proxy voting system available for record holders at www.envisionreports.com/CNDT, and its shareholders who hold in street name to follow the voting instructions provided by their broker or custodian. Whether or not shareholders plan to participate in the virtual form option Annual Meeting, the Company urges shareholders to vote and submit their proxies in advance of the Annual Meeting by one of the methods described in the proxy materials for the Annual Meeting. The proxy card and voting instruction form included with the notice and proxy statement previously distributed will not be updated to reflect the change to a virtual-only meeting and may continue to be used to vote shares in connection with the Annual Meeting. Proxy voting forms already returned by shareholders will remain valid and will be voted at the Annual Meeting unless revoked.
Shareholders at the close of business on the record date, March 25, 2020, are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting. Shareholders can access the virtual format of the meeting at www.meetingcenter.io/249117624 with the password CNDT2020 by entering their 15-digit voting control number (control number).

To register, such shareholders must submit to Computershare their name, email address and proof of proxy power (legal proxy) reflecting their Company holdings, and must also include Conduent Legal Proxy in the subject or address line of the registration request.

Any questions regarding the virtual format of the meeting, or how to access it, should be directed to Computershare at (877) 238-6956.
