Item 5.03Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year

Effective as of June 21, 2021, Systemax Inc. (the “Company”) amended its Certificate of Incorporation ("Charter Amendment") to change its legal name to “Global Industrial Company” (the “Name Change”). In addition, on June 21, 2021, the Company revised its amended and restated bylaws ("Bylaws") to reflect the Name Change.

This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Charter Amendment and the Bylaws, copies of which are attached hereto as Exhibits 3.1 and 3.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

Item 8.01Other Events

In connection with the Name Change, the New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol for the Company’s shares of common stock ("Common Stock") changed from “SYX” to “GIC” at the opening of trading on June 21, 2021 (the "Ticker Change"). The new CUSIP number of the Common Stock is 37892E 102.

The Name Change and Symbol Change do not affect the rights of the Company’s stockholders. The Common Stock will continue to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Following the Name Change, the stock certificates of the Common Stock, which reflect the former name of the Company, will continue to be valid. Certificates reflecting the Name Change will be issued in due course as old stock certificates are tendered for exchange or transfer to the Company’s transfer agent.
