Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN) announced today that it has increased the size of and priced its concurrent underwritten public offerings of 34 million shares of its common stock (the “Common Stock Offering”) at a public offering price of $8.00 per share and $350 million aggregate principal amount of its convertible senior notes due 2019 (the “Convertible Notes Offering” and, collectively with the Common Stock Offering, the “Offerings”). Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and Goldman, Sachs & Co. have acted as joint book-running managers for the Offerings, Dowling & Partners Securities, LLC, Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., Macquarie Capital (USA) Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC have acted as co-managers for the Common Stock Offering and Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc. has acted as co-manager for the Convertible Notes Offering. In connection with the Offerings, the underwriters have the option to purchase an additional 5.1 million shares of common stock and an additional $50 million principal amount of notes from the Company at the public offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions, within 30 days. The Offerings are expected to close on March 4, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.
The notes will be the Company’s unsecured senior obligations. The notes will pay interest semi-annually on March 1 and September 1 at a rate of 2.25% per year, and will mature on March 1, 2019.
Prior to December 1, 2018, the notes will be convertible only upon specified events and during specified periods and, thereafter, at any time. The notes will initially be convertible at a conversion rate of 94.3396 shares of the Company’s common stock per $1,000 principal amount of notes, corresponding to an initial conversion price of approximately $10.60 per share of the Company’s common stock. The conversion rate will be subject to adjustment upon certain events, but will not be adjusted for accrued and unpaid interest. Upon conversion, the Company will pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of its common stock or a combination of cash and shares of its common stock, at the Company’s option. The Company will have the right to redeem all or part of the notes on or after March 8, 2016 if the last reported sale price of its common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period.
