PHILADELPHIA -- April 11, 2013

Radian Guaranty Inc., the private mortgage insurance subsidiary of Radian
Group Inc. (NYSE:RDN), today announced it will offer a unique service,
ApprovalGUARD™, to encourage borrowers, who recently modified their mortgages
through the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Home Affordable Refinance
Program (HARP), to remain current on their new mortgage payments. HARP is
designed to help underwater borrowers refinance into a new, more affordable
and sustainable mortgage.

ApprovalGUARD, a proprietary service administered exclusively by the iQual
Corporation, is the only national consumer credit advisory service that
provides credit education coupled with a personalized review of a consumer’s
credit report through highly trained credit advisors. In addition, each
consumer is provided real time access to their personal credit information,
24/7 electronic credit monitoring, credit reports, scores and home property
monitoring. Radian will select eligible homeowners for complimentary, one year
access to ApprovalGUARD.

“These borrowers have taken the first step to try to remain current on their
mortgage payments by having their loan modified, and we believe it’s important
to offer them tools to support their efforts to stay in their home,” said
Scott Theobald, Chief Risk Officer for Radian Guaranty. “By offering them
access to ApprovalGUARD, we hope to empower these borrowers to make more
informed credit related decisions by better understanding how credit works in
conjunction with their personal credit goals.”

“With the multiplicity of credit products and the challenging economy, it’s
difficult for consumers to understand how to most effectively manage their
credit, given each person's unique issues and goals. iQual simplifies these
complexities by educating each customer in a personalized manner to better
understand their credit situation and learn how to make more effective credit
related decisions,” said Jeff Mandel, the President and CEO of iQual
Corporation. “We are excited to be partnering with Radian and respect its
industry leadership and commitment to homeownership growth and preservation.”
