Business Wire

PHILADELPHIA -- February 25, 2013

Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN) announced today that it has commenced two
separate underwritten public offerings of up to 30 million shares of its
common stock (the “Common Stock Offering”) and $200 million aggregate
principal amount of its convertible senior notes due 2019 (the “Convertible
Notes Offering” and, collectively with the Common Stock Offering, the
“Offerings”). The convertible senior notes will be convertible into shares of
the Company’s common stock, cash or a combination of shares of common stock
and cash, at the Company’s election. Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and Goldman,
Sachs & Co. will act as joint book-running managers for the Offerings. The
underwriters will have the option to purchase up to an additional 4.5 million
shares of common stock and an option to purchase up to an additional $30
million aggregate principal amount of the convertible senior notes, within 30
days. The public offering price of the Company’s common stock and the interest
rate, conversion rate, and other terms of the convertible senior notes will be
determined, based on market conditions, at the time of the pricing of the
Offerings. The Offerings are subject to market conditions, and there can be no
assurance as to whether the Offerings will be completed, or as to the actual
size or terms of the Offerings.

Neither the Common Stock Offering nor the Convertible Notes Offering will be
contingent on the completion of the other offering.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offerings to fund working
capital requirements and for general corporate purposes, including additional
capital support for our mortgage insurance business.

The Offerings are being conducted as separate public offerings pursuant to an
effective shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission (the “SEC”) on Form S-3 and declared effective on August 20, 2012.
