Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure.

On March 5, 2024, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) issued a final rule amending Regulation Z, which implements the Truth in Lending Act, relating to the assessment of late fees on credit card accounts. The key elements of the CFPB’s final rule and certain of the current anticipated implications to Synchrony Financial are summarized in Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
The information contained in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, are furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of Form 8-K and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, except as shall be expressly stated by specific reference in such filing.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, includes certain forward-looking statements as defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which are subject to the “safe harbor” created by those sections. Forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as “anticipate,” “expect,” “outlook,” “continue,” or words of similar meaning. The forward-looking statements convey our expectations, intentions, or forecasts about future events, circumstances, or results regarding the implications of the CFPB’s final rule on our business, results of operation and financial performance. Forward-looking statements in this Current Report are based on management’s assumptions and estimates, and are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes that are difficult to predict, may change over time and many of which are beyond our control. These uncertainties and risks, include, but are not limited to: (i) the timing of implementation of the CFPB’s final rule; (ii) the impact of the final rule on the competitiveness of our credit products, as well as our ability to offer or continue to offer certain products; and (iii) our ability to successfully execute strategic actions to mitigate the impacts of the rule on our business, which is dependent on, among other things, partner, customer and other stakeholder acceptance. As a result, actual results could differ materially from those indicated in these forward-looking statements. For the reasons described above, we caution you against relying on any forward-looking statements, which should also be read in conjunction with our public filings, including under the heading “Risk Factors Relating to Our Business” and “Risk Factors Relating to Regulation” in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, as filed on February 8, 2024. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made and we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as otherwise may be required by law.
