Largest Global Fuel Brands Continue to Trust WEX to Serve Their Customers

Long-Term Deals Give Industry New Standard of Loyalty

WEX (NYSE:WEX) has renewed and expanded its agreement with Marathon
Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:MPC) to operate its commercial fuel card
program.

The multi-year agreement, which specifies WEX will provide Marathon
Petroleum Corp. with sales and marketing resources to further drive
Marathon's retail growth, follows an initial five-year deal between the
companies.

Marathon Petroleum Corp. is a major oil refining, marketing and
transportation company headquartered in Findlay, Ohio.

Since WEX took over Marathon's fleet card program in 2012, its fuel card
portfolio has experienced consistent double-digit year-over-year growth
and decreased attrition.

"Our jobber customers see value in the development of their fleet
business, and our WEX program helps them to do just that," Marathon
Director of Brand Marketing Bill McCleave said.

Marathon Petroleum Corporation is the nation's second-largest refiner,
with a refining capacity of 1.9 million barrels per calendar day in its
six-refinery system. Marathon-brand gasoline is sold through
approximately 5,800 independently-owned retail outlets across 20 states
and the District of Columbia.

WEX manages customer fueling card programs for many of the world's major
oil brands, and for all 10 of the Top 10 of U.S. convenience store
brands by market share. WEX recently re-signed one of the nation's
largest convenience store chains to a 7-year renewal, expanding their
sales team and marketing resources as the company continues to grow its
nationwide footprint.

"Partners continue to re-sign with WEX because we are constantly
delivering new technology, enhancing service solutions and executing
go-to-market strategies that uniquely grow each partner's business in a
way that bolsters their brands and meets their objectives," WEX Senior
Vice President Jay Collins said. "Marathon has seen the value that their
fleet card program brings in not only extending Marathon's brand values,
but also in helping to grow their stations' businesses."

"Extended deals show us there is tremendous trust in the WEX brand from
the biggest players in the industry," Collins said. "They confirm the
belief we have in our technology and our people."
