Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN) today announced that it has completed its previously announced concurrent public offerings of 39.1 million shares of common stock and $400 million principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2019. The Company received aggregate net proceeds, after underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses, of approximately $299.5 million from the Common Stock Offering and $389.8 million from the Convertible Notes Offering. The Company intends to use the proceeds from the offerings to fund working capital requirements and for general corporate purposes, including additional capital support for its mortgage insurance business. Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and Goldman, Sachs & Co. 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 acted as co-managers for the Common Stock Offering and Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc. acted as co-manager for the Convertible Notes Offering.
The notes are the Company’s unsecured 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.
