MGIC Investment Corporation Plans Special Shareholders Meeting And Files Shelf Registration Statement

Stock quotes in this article: MTG

MILWAUKEE , May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MGIC Investment Corporation (NYSE: MTG, the "Company") commented on two filings it made earlier today with the SEC.     The first filing is preliminary proxy material regarding a Special Shareholders Meeting expected to be held on Thursday, June 27, 2013. The purpose of the meeting is to seek approval of an increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock.  The Company's recent sale of Common Stock and convertible debt reduced the number of shares of Common Stock available for future issuance.

The second filing is a Shelf Registration Statement, which will allow the Company to issue various types of securities, including debt, Common Stock and preferred stock, from time to time.   This registration statement replaces the Company's prior Shelf Registration Statement that expired on April 20, 2013.

The Company does not have any plans to issue Common Stock or other securities, except for the possible issuance of shares under existing incentive plans for directors and employees. Increasing the authorized shares of Common Stock and filing the shelf registration statement are intended to give the Company greater flexibility to issue securities in the future should conditions warrant. The Company is not required to offer or sell any securities under the Shelf Registration statement.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell any securities.

Additional Information

INVESTORS AND SECURITY HOLDERS ARE ADVISED TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE BEFORE MAKING ANY VOTING DECISION WITH RESPECT TO THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE COMPANY'S ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION BECAUSE IT WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
