Our results are a testament to the strength of our business model and the dedication of our team, who has shown commitment to our customers, our company and to each other as we have worked together to successfully navigate this challenging environment."

FIRST QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

NIW was $20.2 billion in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $29.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $16.7 billion in the first quarter of 2020.
Of the $20.2 billion in NIW in the first quarter of 2021, 90.2 percent was written with monthly and other recurring premiums, compared to 91.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020, and 81.1 percent in the first quarter of 2020.

Total primary mortgage insurance in force as of March 31, 2021, declined to $238.9 billion, a decrease of 2.9 percent compared to $246.1 billion as of December 31, 2020, and a decrease of 1.1 percent compared to $241.6 billion as of March 31, 2020. The year over year decrease included a 26.3 percent decline in single premium policy insurance in force, partially offset by a 8.7 percent increase in monthly premium policy insurance in force.
Persistency, which is the percentage of mortgage insurance that remains in force after a twelve-month period, was 57.2 percent for the twelve months ended March 31, 2021, compared to 61.2 percent for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and 75.4 percent for the twelve months ended March 31, 2020.
Annualized persistency for the three months ended March 31, 2021, was 62.5 percent, compared to 60.4 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2020, and 76.5 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Net mortgage insurance premiums earned were $264.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $286.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, and $275.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.
Mortgage insurance in force portfolio premium yield was 42.7 basis points in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 44.6 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2020 and 46.1 basis points in the first quarter of 2020. Net mortgage insurance premiums earned in the fourth quarter of 2020 included an increase of $11.3 million for the cumulative recognition of deferred initial premiums on monthly premium policies. Excluding the impact of this adjustment, in force premium yield was 42.8 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The impact of single premium policy cancellations before consideration of reinsurance represented 6.4 basis points of direct premium yield in the first quarter of 2021, 8.7 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2020, and 4.0 basis points in the first quarter of 2020.
Total net mortgage insurance premium yield, which includes the impact of ceded premiums and accrued profit commission, was 43.7 basis points in the first quarter of 2021, 46.7 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2020, or 44.8 basis points excluding the impact of the fourth quarter 2020 premium adjustment, and 45.6 basis points in the first quarter of 2020.
Additional details regarding premiums earned may be found in Exhibit D.

The mortgage insurance provision for losses was $45.9 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $56.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, and $35.2 million in the first quarter of 2020.
The number of primary delinquent loans was 50,106 as of March 31, 2021, compared to 55,537 as of December 31, 2020 and 19,781 as of March 31, 2020.
The loss ratio in the first quarter of 2021 was 17.3 percent, compared to 19.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020 and 12.8 percent in the first quarter of 2020.
Total mortgage insurance claims paid were $10.5 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $40.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, and $23.4 million in the first quarter of 2020. Excluding the impact of commutations and settlements, claims paid were $6.5 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $8.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $23.4 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Radian's Real Estate segment offers a broad array of title, valuation, asset management and other real estate services to market participants across the real estate value chain.
Total Real Estate segment revenues for the first quarter of 2021 were $25.8 million, compared to $23.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, and $26.5 million for the first quarter of 2020.
Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (Real Estate adjusted EBITDA) for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was a loss of $5.9 million, compared to a loss of $7.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020, and income of $0.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Additional details regarding the non-GAAP measure Real Estate adjusted EBITDA may be found in Exhibits F and G.
The decrease in Real Estate adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 was primarily driven by declines in services revenue related to our asset management services and valuation services due to the continued negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the operating environment and continued strategic investments focused on our title and digital real estate businesses. Such investments contributed to an increase in total expenses, which was partially offset by increases in net premiums earned and services revenue attributable to our title services business.

Other operating expenses were $70.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $81.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, and $69.1 million in the first quarter of 2020.
The decrease in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 was primarily related to a $6.9 million decrease in non-operating items as well as a decrease in share-based compensation expense, which was partially offset by a decrease in ceding commissions. The increase in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020 was driven primarily by an increase in compensation expense, which was partially offset by a decrease in travel and entertainment expense.

CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY UPDATE

At March 31, 2021, Excess Available Resources to Support Private Mortgage Insurer Eligibility Requirements (PMIERs) were $2.7 billion, or 79 percent, above Radian Guaranty's Minimum Required Assets.

Radian Group

As of March 31, 2021, Radian Group maintained $1.0 billion of available liquidity. Total liquidity, which includes the company’s $267.5 million unsecured revolving credit facility, was $1.3 billion as of March 31, 2021.
For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, the company repurchased 413 thousand shares of Radian Group common stock at a total cost of $8.6 million, including commissions. As of March 31, 2021, purchase authority of up to $190.2 million remained available under this program. The current share repurchase authorization expires on August 31, 2021.
On February 10, 2021, Radian Group's Board of Directors authorized a regular quarterly dividend on its common stock in the amount of $0.125 per share and paid the dividend on March 4, 2021.
On May 4, 2021, Radian Group’s Board of Directors authorized an increase to the Company’s quarterly dividend from $0.125 to $0.14 per share. The dividend is payable on June 4, 2021, to stockholders of record as of May 24, 2021.

Radian Guaranty

At March 31, 2021, Radian Guaranty’s Available Assets under PMIERs totaled approximately $4.9 billion, resulting in excess available resources or a “cushion” of $1.5 billion, or 42 percent, over its Minimum Required Assets.
As of March 31, 2021, 60 percent of Radian Guaranty's primary mortgage insurance risk in force is subject to some form of risk distribution, providing a $1.1 billion reduction of Minimum Required Assets under PMIERs.

Thornberry added, "We recently increased our quarterly dividend by 12% and resumed our share repurchase program based on continued signs of improvement in the overall economy, the positive momentum in the housing market and the favorable credit trends within our portfolio."

RECENT EVENTS

Insurance-Linked-Note

As previously announced, in April 2021, Radian Guaranty entered into its fifth fully collateralized mortgage insurance-linked-note (ILN) reinsurance transaction, in which the company obtained $497.7 million of credit-risk protection from Eagle Re 2021-1 Ltd. (Eagle Re) through the issuance by Eagle Re of ILNs to capital markets investors and Radian Group in the amounts of $452.3 million and $45.4 million, respectively, in an unregistered private offering. Eagle Re is a special purpose insurer domiciled in Bermuda and is not a subsidiary or affiliate of Radian Guaranty. Radian Guaranty's related PMIERs credit under this ILN transaction remains subject to GSE approval. As of March 31, 2021, after consideration of the April ILN transaction described above:

Radian Guaranty's Minimum Required Assets would have decreased by approximately $480 million, which would have resulted in an increase in PMIERs excess Available Assets or "cushion" to $1.9 billion, or 64 percent.
Radian Guaranty's primary mortgage insurance risk in force that is subject to some form of risk distribution would have increased to 78 percent, providing a $1.6 billion reduction of Minimum Required Assets under PMIERs.

Radian Guaranty Operating Statistics for April 2021

The information below includes total new primary defaults, which include defaults under forbearance programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as cures, claims paid and rescissions/denials. The information regarding new defaults and cures is reported to Radian Guaranty from loan servicers. We consider a loan to be in default for financial statement and internal tracking purposes upon receipt of notification by servicers that a borrower has missed two monthly payments. Default reporting, particularly on a monthly basis, may be affected by several factors, including the date on which the loan servicer’s report is generated and transmitted to Radian Guaranty, the impact of updated information submitted by servicers and the timing of servicing transfers.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Radian believes that adjusted pretax operating income, adjusted diluted net operating income per share and adjusted net operating return on equity (non-GAAP measures) facilitate evaluation of the company’s fundamental financial performance and provide relevant and meaningful information to investors about the ongoing operating results of the company. On a consolidated basis, these measures are not recognized in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and should not be considered in isolation or viewed as substitutes for GAAP measures of performance. The measures described below have been established in order to increase transparency for the purpose of evaluating the company’s operating trends and enabling more meaningful comparisons with Radian’s competitors.

Adjusted pretax operating income (loss) is defined as GAAP consolidated pretax income (loss) excluding the effects of: (i) net gains (losses) on investments and other financial instruments; (ii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iii) amortization and impairment of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets; and (iv) impairment of other long-lived assets and other non-operating items, such as gains (losses) from the sale of lines of business and acquisition-related income and expenses. Adjusted diluted net operating income (loss) per share is calculated by dividing (i) adjusted pretax operating income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, net of taxes computed using the Company’s statutory tax rate, by (ii) the sum of the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and all dilutive potential common shares outstanding. Adjusted net operating return on equity is calculated by dividing annualized adjusted pretax operating income (loss), net of taxes computed using the Company's statutory tax rate, by average stockholders' equity, based on the average of the beginning and ending balances for each period presented.

In addition to the above non-GAAP measures for the consolidated company, we also have presented as supplemental information a non-GAAP measure for our Real Estate segment, representing a measure of earnings before interest, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"). We calculate Real Estate adjusted EBITDA by using adjusted pretax operating income as described above, further adjusted to remove the impact of depreciation and corporate allocations for interest and operating expenses. In addition, Real Estate adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Real Estate adjusted EBITDA by GAAP total revenue for the Real Estate segment. Real Estate adjusted EBITDA and Real Estate adjusted EBITDA margin are used to facilitate comparisons with other services companies, since they are widely accepted measures of performance in the services industry and are used internally as supplemental measures to evaluate the performance of our Real Estate segment.

See Exhibit F or Radian’s website for a description of these items, as well as Exhibit G for reconciliations to the most comparable consolidated GAAP measures.

Radian Group Inc. and Subsidiaries

Definition of Consolidated Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Exhibit F (page 1 of 2)

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the traditional GAAP financial measures, we have presented “adjusted pretax operating income (loss),” “adjusted diluted net operating income (loss) per share” and “adjusted net operating return on equity,” which are non-GAAP financial measures for the consolidated company, among our key performance indicators to evaluate our fundamental financial performance. These non-GAAP financial measures align with the way the Company’s business performance is evaluated by both management and the board of directors. These measures have been established in order to increase transparency for the purposes of evaluating our operating trends and enabling more meaningful comparisons with our peers. Although on a consolidated basis “adjusted pretax operating income (loss),” “adjusted diluted net operating income (loss) per share” and “adjusted net operating return on equity” are non-GAAP financial measures, we believe these measures aid in understanding the underlying performance of our operations. Our senior management, including our Chief Executive Officer (Radian’s chief operating decision maker), uses adjusted pretax operating income (loss) as our primary measure to evaluate the fundamental financial performance of the Company’s business segments and to allocate resources to the segments.

Adjusted pretax operating income (loss) is defined as GAAP consolidated pretax income (loss) excluding the effects of: (i) net gains (losses) on investments and other financial instruments; (ii) loss on extinguishment of debt; (iii) amortization and impairment of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets; and (iv) impairment of other long-lived assets and other non-operating items, such as gains (losses) from the sale of lines of business and acquisition-related income and expenses. Adjusted diluted net operating income (loss) per share is calculated by dividing (i) adjusted pretax operating income (loss) attributable to common stockholders, net of taxes computed using the Company’s statutory tax rate, by (ii) the sum of the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and all dilutive potential common shares outstanding. Adjusted net operating return on equity is calculated by dividing annualized adjusted pretax operating income (loss), net of taxes computed using the Company’s statutory tax rate, by average stockholders’ equity, based on the average of the beginning and ending balances for each period presented.

Although adjusted pretax operating income (loss) excludes certain items that have occurred in the past and are expected to occur in the future, the excluded items represent those that are: (i) not viewed as part of the operating performance of our primary activities or (ii) not expected to result in an economic impact equal to the amount reflected in pretax income (loss). These adjustments, along with the reasons for their treatment, are described below.

(1)

Net gains (losses) on investments and other financial instruments. The recognition of realized investment gains or losses can vary significantly across periods as the activity is highly discretionary based on the timing of individual securities sales due to such factors as market opportunities, our tax and capital profile and overall market cycles. Unrealized gains and losses arise primarily from changes in the market value of our investments that are classified as trading or equity securities. These valuation adjustments may not necessarily result in realized economic gains or losses.

Trends in the profitability of our fundamental operating activities can be more clearly identified without the fluctuations of these realized and unrealized gains or losses and changes in fair value of other financial instruments. We do not view them to be indicative of our fundamental operating activities.

(2)

Loss on extinguishment of debt. Gains or losses on early extinguishment of debt and losses incurred to purchase our debt prior to maturity are discretionary activities that are undertaken in order to take advantage of market opportunities to strengthen our financial and capital positions; therefore, we do not view these activities as part of our operating performance. Such transactions do not reflect expected future operations and do not provide meaningful insight regarding our current or past operating trends.

(3)

Amortization and impairment of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets. Amortization of acquired intangible assets represents the periodic expense required to amortize the cost of acquired intangible assets over their estimated useful lives. Acquired intangible assets are also periodically reviewed for potential impairment, and impairment adjustments are made whenever appropriate. We do not view these charges as part of the operating performance of our primary activities.

(4)

Impairment of other long-lived assets and other non-operating items. Includes activities that we do not view to be indicative of our fundamental operating activities, such as: (i) impairment of internal-use software and other long-lived assets; (ii) gains (losses) from the sale of lines of business; and (iii) acquisition-related expenses.

Definition of Consolidated Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Exhibit F (page 2 of 2)

In addition to the above non-GAAP measures for the consolidated company, we also have presented as supplemental information a non-GAAP measure for our Real Estate segment, representing a measure of earnings before interest, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”). We calculate Real Estate adjusted EBITDA by using adjusted pretax operating income (loss) as described above, further adjusted to remove the impact of depreciation and corporate allocations for interest and operating expenses. In addition, Real Estate adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Real Estate adjusted EBITDA by GAAP total revenue for the Real Estate segment. Real Estate adjusted EBITDA and Real Estate adjusted EBITDA margin are used to facilitate comparisons with other services companies, since they are widely accepted measures of performance in the services industry and are used internally as supplemental measures to evaluate the performance of our Real Estate segment.

See Exhibit G for the reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP measures, consolidated pretax income (loss), diluted net income (loss) per share and return on equity to our non-GAAP financial measures for the consolidated company, adjusted pretax operating income (loss), adjusted diluted net operating income (loss) per share and adjusted net operating return on equity, respectively. Exhibit G also contains the reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP measure, net income (loss), to Real Estate adjusted EBITDA.

Total adjusted pretax operating income (loss), adjusted diluted net operating income (loss) per share, adjusted net operating return on equity, Real Estate adjusted EBITDA and Real Estate adjusted EBITDA margin should not be considered in isolation or viewed as substitutes for GAAP pretax income (loss), diluted net income (loss) per share, return on equity or net income (loss). Our definitions of adjusted pretax operating income (loss), adjusted diluted net operating income (loss) per share, adjusted net operating return on equity, Real Estate adjusted EBITDA or Real Estate adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly-named measures reported by other companies.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

All statements in this press release that address events, developments or results that we expect or anticipate may occur in the future are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In most cases, forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as “anticipate,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “would,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “goal,” “contemplate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “project,” “potential,” “continue,” “seek,” “strategy,” “future,” “likely” or the negative or other variations on these words and other similar expressions. These statements, which may include, without limitation, projections regarding our future performance and financial condition, are made on the basis of management’s current views and assumptions with respect to future events, including management’s current views regarding the likely impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Any forward-looking statement is not a guarantee of future performance and actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statement. These statements speak only as of the date they were made, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. We operate in a changing environment where new risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all risks that may affect us, particularly those associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, which has had wide-ranging and continually evolving effects. The forward-looking statements, as well as our prospects as a whole, are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation:

the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused significant economic disruption, high unemployment, periods of volatility and disruption in financial markets, and required adjustments in the housing finance system and real estate markets. The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted our businesses, and we expect that the COVID-19 pandemic could further impact our business and subject us to certain risks, including those discussed in “Item 1A. Risk Factors—The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted us, and its ultimate impact on our business and financial results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including the scope, severity and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities in response to the pandemic.” and the other risk factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and in our subsequent reports and registration statements filed from time to time with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission;
changes in economic and political conditions that impact the size of the insurable market, the credit performance of our insured portfolio, and our business prospects;
changes in the way customers, investors, ratings agencies, regulators or legislators perceive our performance, financial strength and future prospects;
Radian Guaranty Inc.’s (“Radian Guaranty”) ability to remain eligible under the Private Mortgage Insurer Eligibility Requirements (the “PMIERs”) and other applicable requirements imposed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (the "FHFA") and by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (collectively, the “GSEs”) to insure loans purchased by the GSEs;
our ability to maintain an adequate level of capital in our insurance subsidiaries to satisfy existing and future regulatory requirements, including the PMIERs and any changes thereto, such as the application of the recent and temporary amendment that applies a reduced capital charge nationwide for certain COVID-19-related nonperforming loans, and potential changes to the Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Model Act currently under consideration;
changes in the charters or business practices of, or rules or regulations imposed by or applicable to, the GSEs, which may include changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, changes in the requirements for Radian Guaranty to remain an approved insurer to the GSEs, changes in the GSEs’ interpretation and application of the PMIERs, or changes impacting loans purchased by the GSEs;
the Enterprise Regulatory Capital Framework that was finalized by the FHFA in December 2020 and that, among other things, increases the capital requirements for the GSEs and reduces the credit they receive for risk transfer, which could impact their operations and pricing as well as the size of the insurable mortgage insurance market, and which may form the basis for future versions of the PMIERs;
changes in the current housing finance system in the United States, including the roles of the Federal Housing Administration (the "FHA"), the GSEs and private mortgage insurers in this system;
our ability to successfully execute and implement our capital plans, including our risk distribution strategy through the capital markets and reinsurance markets, and to maintain sufficient holding company liquidity to meet our liquidity needs;
our ability to successfully execute and implement our business plans and strategies, including plans and strategies that require GSE and/or regulatory approvals and licenses and that are subject to complex compliance requirements;
uncertainty from the expected discontinuance of LIBOR and transition to one or more alternative benchmarks that could cause interest rate volatility and, among other things, impact our investment portfolio, cost of debt and cost of reinsurance through mortgage insurance-linked notes transactions;
any disruption in the servicing of mortgages covered by our insurance policies, as well as poor servicer performance, which could be impacted by the burdens placed on many servicers due to the COVID-19 pandemic;
a decrease in the “Persistency Rates” (the percentage of insurance in force that remains in force over a period of time) of our mortgage insurance on monthly premium products;
competition in our mortgage insurance business, including price competition and competition from the FHA and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as well as from other forms of credit enhancement, such as GSE-sponsored alternatives to traditional mortgage insurance;
the effect of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act on the financial services industry in general, and on our businesses in particular, including the recent changes to the "qualified mortgages" (QM) loan requirements;
legislative and regulatory activity (or inactivity), including the adoption of (or failure to adopt) new laws and regulations, or changes in existing laws and regulations, or the way they are interpreted or applied, including potential changes in tax law under the Biden Administration;
legal and regulatory claims, assertions, actions, reviews, audits, inquiries and investigations that could result in adverse judgments, settlements, fines, injunctions, restitutions or other relief that could require significant expenditures, new or increased reserves or have other effects on our business;
the amount and timing of potential payments or adjustments associated with federal or other tax examinations;
the possibility that we may fail to estimate accurately, especially in the event of an extended economic downturn or a period of extreme market volatility and economic uncertainty such as we have been experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the likelihood, magnitude and timing of losses in establishing loss reserves for our mortgage insurance business or to accurately calculate and/or project our Available Assets and Minimum Required Assets under the PMIERs, which will be impacted by, among other things, the size and mix of our insurance in force, the level of defaults in our portfolio, the reported status of defaults in our portfolio, including whether they are subject to forbearance, a repayment plan or a loan modification trial period granted in response to a financial hardship related to COVID-19, the level of cash flow generated by our insurance operations and our risk distribution strategies;
volatility in our financial results caused by changes in the fair value of our assets and liabilities, including our investment portfolio;
changes in “GAAP” (accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S.) or “SAPP” (statutory accounting principles and practices including those required or permitted, if applicable, by the insurance departments of the respective states of domicile of our insurance subsidiaries) rules and guidance, or their interpretation;
effectiveness and security of our information technology systems and solutions, including our ability to successfully develop, launch and implement new and innovative technologies and digital solutions and the potential disruption in, or failure of, our information technology systems due to computer viruses, unauthorized access, cyber-attack, natural disasters or other similar events;
our ability to attract and retain key employees; and
legal and other limitations on amounts we may receive from our subsidiaries, including dividends or ordinary course distributions under our internal tax- and expense-sharing arrangements.

For more information regarding these risks and uncertainties as well as certain additional risks that we face, you should refer to “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, and to subsequent reports and registration statements filed from time to time with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. We caution you not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are current only as of the date on which we issued this press release. We do not intend to, and we disclaim any duty or obligation to, update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect new information or future events or for any other reason.
