MILWAUKEE, May 10, 2013

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.
