Item 7.01.Regulation FD Disclosure.

On March 15, 2021, WEX Inc. (“WEX” or the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that it is providing certain prospective lenders information for purposes of considering a potential refinancing of its credit facility, including among other things extending the maturity date of the tranche A term loans and revolving credit facility to 2026 and the tranche B term loans to 2028. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference in this Item 7.01.

Attached as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference in this Item 7.01 is selected information that WEX expects to provide to certain prospective lenders in connection with the Potential Amendment and Extension. The information contained in Exhibit 99.2 constitutes only a portion of the materials being made available to prospective lenders and is intended to be considered in the context of the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and other public announcements that the Company may make, by press release or otherwise, from time to time. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any such information as a result of developments occurring after the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, except as required by law. The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including the information contained in Exhibit 99.2, does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Exhibit 99.2 includes financial measures of WEX that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). WEX’s management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information that enhances management’s, investors’ and prospective lenders’ ability to evaluate WEX’s operating results and ability to repay its obligations.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be used in isolation and should not be considered a substitute for any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool, including that other companies may calculate similar non-GAAP financial measures differently than as defined in the attached materials, limiting their usefulness as a comparative tool. WEX compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. WEX further compensates for the limitations of its use of non-GAAP financial measures by presenting comparable GAAP measures. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures contained within Exhibit 99.2.

The information in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (including Exhibit 99.1 and Exhibit 99.2) shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Any statements that are not statements of historical facts may be deemed to be forward-looking statements.

The Company's forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential future impact of any alliance, merger, acquisition, disposition or stock repurchases. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K and undue reliance should not be placed on these statements.
