This compares to net income for the full year 2017 of $121.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share which, in addition to the incremental tax provision, included impairment of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets related to the Mortgage and Real Estate Services segment of $130.9 million, net of tax.

    • NIW for the full year 2018 represented record volume written on a flow basis for the company.
    • Of the $12.7 billion in NIW in the fourth quarter of 2018, 83 percent was written with monthly premiums, compared to 78 percent in the third quarter of 2018, and 77 percent a year ago.
    • Borrower-paid originations accounted for 94 percent of total NIW in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to 91 percent in the third quarter of 2018, and 79 percent a year ago.

    • The composition of Radian’s mortgage insurance portfolio continues to improve, with 94 percent consisting of new business written after 2008, including those loans that successfully completed the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP).
    • Persistency, which is the percentage of mortgage insurance that remains in force after a twelve-month period, was 83.1 percent for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, compared to 81.4 percent for the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 and 81.1 percent for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017.
    • Annualized persistency for the three months ended December 31, 2018, was 85.5 percent, compared to 83.4 percent for the three months ended September 30, 2018, and 79.4 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2017.
  • Net mortgage insurance premiums earned were $259.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, compared to $255.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, and $245.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017.

The elevated number of primary delinquent loans as of December 31, 2017 was driven by new notices of default from areas affected by major 2017 hurricanes. Based on past experience, the company continues to expect that these delinquencies will not result in a material number of new paid claims.
    • The primary mortgage insurance delinquency rate was 2.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to 2.1 percent in the third quarter of 2018, and 2.9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017.

For the full year 2018, total net claims paid were $215.9 million, compared to $390.4 million for the full year 2017. Claims paid for the full year 2017 included the payment of $54.8 million made in connection with the scheduled final settlement of the Freddie Mac Agreement entered into in August 2013. In addition, the company’s pending claim inventory declined 8 percent from the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • Total Mortgage and Real Estate Services Segment revenues for the fourth quarter were $41.5 million, compared to $40.9 million for the third quarter of 2018, and $40.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. Total revenues for the full year 2018 were $157.1 million, compared to $161.8 million for the same period of 2017. Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (Services adjusted EBITDA) for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 was $3.2 million, compared to $0.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, and $3.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017.

Additional details regarding the non-GAAP measure Services adjusted EBITDA may be found in Exhibits F and G.
  • As previously announced and during the fourth quarter, Radian acquired Independent Settlement Services, a national appraisal and title management services company, and Five Bridges Advisors, LLC, a developer of proprietary software, data analytics and predictive models leveraging artificial intelligence, machine learning and traditional econometric techniques. While the financial terms of the transactions were immaterial to Radian, the acquisitions are consistent with the company's growth and diversification strategy, as well as its focus on the core product offerings of its Title, Mortgage and Real Estate Services businesses.
  • Other operating expenses were $77.3 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $70.1 million in the third quarter of 2018, and $66.0 million in the fourth quarter of last year. The year-over-year increase was driven primarily by approximately $5.5 million in increased incentive compensation and benefits based on year-to-date performance and approximately $4.1 million of incremental expenses related to the operations of businesses acquired in 2018.

CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY UPDATE

As of December 31, 2018, Radian Group maintained $714 million of available liquidity. Total liquidity, which includes the company’s $268 million unsecured revolving credit facility, was $982 million as of December 31, 2018. The company remains focused on optimizing its capital position, enhancing its return on capital, and increasing its financial flexibility.

  • The Pennsylvania Insurance Department approved a $450 million return of capital from Radian Guaranty to Radian Group during the fourth quarter of 2018, which was paid on December 21, 2018 from Radian Guaranty's gross paid in and contributed statutory surplus. This strategic capital action improves Radian Group's financial flexibility. The company plans to use a portion of these proceeds to retire its $159 million in Senior Notes when due in June 2019.
  • As previously announced, Radian executed the mortgage insurance industry's first simultaneous mortgage insurance linked notes (ILNs) and excess of loss (XOL) reinsurance placement during the fourth quarter of 2018. Radian Guaranty Inc., the principal mortgage insurance subsidiary of Radian Group, obtained $434 million of credit risk protection from Eagle Re 2018-1 Ltd. (Eagle Re) through the issuance by Eagle Re of ILNs to eligible third-party capital markets investors in an unregistered private offering. Eagle Re is a special purpose insurer domiciled in Bermuda and is not a subsidiary or affiliate of Radian. In addition, Radian Guaranty agreed to terms with a third-party global reinsurer on a separate XOL reinsurance agreement for $21 million of protection. The ILN-related reinsurance and XOL transfer risk on the same portfolio of eligible mortgage insurance policies issued by Radian Guaranty between January 2017 and December 2017, with the XOL covering a pro rata portion of the risk alongside certain classes of the ILNs.
  • After consideration of the ILN and XOL reinsurance placement and the $450 million return of capital described above, as of December 31, 2018, Radian Guaranty had Available Assets under the Private Mortgage Insurer Eligibility Requirements (PMIERs 1.0) of approximately $3.5 billion, which resulted in an excess or “cushion” of approximately $567 million, or 19 percent, over its Minimum Required Assets of approximately $2.9 billion.
  • If the new PMIERs (PMIERs 2.0) requirements were in effect, Radian Guaranty calculates that its Available Assets at December 31, 2018 would have resulted in a cushion of approximately $340 million, or 12 percent, over its Minimum Required Assets. The change in Radian's PMIERs cushion for PMIERs 2.0 as compared to PMIERs 1.0 is primarily due to the elimination in PMIERS 2.0 of any credit for future premiums that is currently allowed for insurance policies written prior to and including 2008. Radian continues to expect its PMIERs cushion to increase over time as a result of continued organic growth and ongoing risk distribution.

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 is defined as earnings excluding the impact of certain items that are not viewed as part of the operating performance of the company’s primary activities, or not expected to result in an economic impact equal to the amount reflected in pretax income. Adjusted pretax operating income adjusts GAAP pretax income to remove the effects of: (i) net gains (losses) on investments and other financial instruments; (ii) loss on induced conversion and debt extinguishment; (iii) acquisition-related expenses; (iv) amortization or impairment of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets; and (v) net impairment losses recognized in earnings and losses from the sale of business lines. Adjusted diluted net operating income per share represents a diluted net income per share calculation using as its basis adjusted pretax operating income, net of taxes at the company’s statutory tax rate for the period. Adjusted net operating return on equity is calculated by dividing annualized adjusted pretax operating income, 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.

The company has also presented a non-GAAP measure for tangible book value per share, which represents book value per share less the per-share impact of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets, net. The company uses this measure to assess the quality and growth of its capital. Because tangible book value per share is a widely used financial measure which focuses on the underlying fundamentals of the company’s financial position and operating trends without the impact of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets, the company believes that current and prospective investors may find it useful in their analysis.

In addition to the above non-GAAP measures for the consolidated company, the company also presents as supplemental information a non-GAAP measure for the Services segment, representing earnings before interest, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). Services adjusted EBITDA is calculated by using the Services segment’s 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, the company also has presented a related non-GAAP measure, Services adjusted EBITDA margin, which is calculated by dividing Services adjusted EBITDA by GAAP total revenue for the Services segment. Services adjusted EBITDA and Services adjusted EBITDA margin are presented 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 Services 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.

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,” “adjusted diluted net operating income per share” and adjusted net operating return on equity, 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,” “adjusted diluted net operating income 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 is defined as GAAP consolidated pretax income from continuing operations excluding the effects of: (i) net gains (losses) on investments and other financial instruments; (ii) loss on induced conversion and debt extinguishment; (iii) acquisition-related expenses; (iv) amortization or impairment of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets; and (v) net impairment losses recognized in earnings and losses from the sale of lines of business. Adjusted diluted net operating income per share is calculated by dividing (i) adjusted pretax operating income attributable to common shareholders, 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. Interest expense on convertible debt, share dilution from convertible debt and the impact of share-based compensation arrangements have been reflected in the per share calculations consistent with the accounting standard regarding earnings per share, whenever the impact is dilutive. Adjusted net operating return on equity is calculated by dividing annualized adjusted pretax operating income, 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 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. 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. Therefore, these items are excluded from our calculation of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).
 
(2)

Loss on induced conversion and debt extinguishment. Gains or losses on early extinguishment of debt and losses incurred to purchase our convertible 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. Therefore, these items are excluded from our calculation of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).

 
(3)

Acquisition-related expenses. Acquisition-related expenses represent the costs incurred to effect an acquisition of a business (i.e., a business combination). Because we pursue acquisitions on a strategic and selective basis and not in the ordinary course of our business, we do not view acquisition-related expenses as a consequence of a primary business activity. Therefore, we do not consider these expenses to be part of our operating performance and they are excluded from our calculation of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).

Definition of Consolidated Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Exhibit F (page 2 of 2)

 
(4)

Amortization or 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 with an indefinite useful life are also periodically reviewed for potential impairment, and impairment adjustments are made whenever appropriate. These charges are not viewed as part of the operating performance of our primary activities and therefore are excluded from our calculation of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).

 
(5)

Net impairment losses recognized in earnings and losses from the sale of lines of business. The recognition of net impairment losses on investments and the impairment of other long-lived assets does not result in a cash payment and can vary significantly in both amount and frequency, depending on market credit cycles and other factors. Losses from the sale of lines of business are highly discretionary as a result of strategic restructuring decisions, and generally do not occur in the normal course of our business. We do not view these losses to be indicative of our fundamental operating activities. Therefore, whenever these losses occur, we exclude them from our calculation of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).

 

We have also presented a non-GAAP measure for tangible book value per share, which represents book value per share less the per-share impact of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets, net. We use this measure to assess the quality and growth of our capital. Because tangible book value per share is a widely-used financial measure which focuses on the underlying fundamentals of our financial position and operating trends without the impact of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets, we believe that current and prospective investors may find it useful in their analysis of the Company.

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 Services segment, representing a measure of earnings before interest, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”). We calculate Services 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, we also have presented a related non-GAAP measure, Services adjusted EBITDA margin, which we calculate by dividing Services adjusted EBITDA by GAAP total revenue for the Services segment. We have presented Services adjusted EBITDA and Services adjusted EBITDA margin 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 Services segment.

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

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

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

All statements in this report 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 Exchange Act 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. 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. 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:

  • 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 ("FHFA") and by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (collectively, the “GSEs”) to insure loans purchased by the GSEs;
  • our ability to successfully execute and implement our capital plans, including plans for expanding our risk distribution strategy through the capital markets and reinsurance markets, and to maintain sufficient holding company liquidity to meet our short- and long-term liquidity needs;
  • our ability to successfully execute and implement our business plans and strategies, including plans and strategies to reposition our Services segment as well as plans and strategies that require GSE and/or regulatory approvals and licenses;
  • our ability to maintain an adequate level of capital in our insurance subsidiaries to satisfy existing and future state regulatory requirements;
  • changes in the charters or business practices of, or rules or regulations imposed by or applicable to the GSEs, which may include changes in the requirements to remain an approved insurer to the GSEs, the GSEs’ interpretation and application of the PMIERs, as well as potential future changes to the PMIERs requirements which, among other things, may be impacted by the general economic environment and housing market, as well as the proposed Conservator Capital Framework (“CCF”) that would establish capital requirements for the GSEs, if the CCF is finalized;
  • changes in the current housing finance system in the U.S., including the role of the Federal Housing Administration (the “FHA”), the GSEs and private mortgage insurers in this system;
  • any disruption in the servicing of mortgages covered by our insurance policies, as well as poor servicer performance;
  • a significant 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, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as well as from other forms of credit enhancement;
  • 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;
  • 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;
  • 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 or have other effects on our business;
  • the amount and timing of potential settlements, payments or adjustments associated with federal or other tax examinations;
  • the possibility that we may fail to estimate accurately 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, including the revised PMIERs (“PMIERs 2.0”), 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 level of cash flow generated by our insurance operations, and our risk distribution strategies;
  • volatility in our results of operations caused by changes in the fair value of our assets and liabilities, including a significant portion of our investment portfolio;
  • potential future impairment charges related to our goodwill and other acquired intangible assets, and uncertainties regarding our ability to execute our restructuring plans within expected costs;
  • changes in “GAAP” (accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S.) or “SAP” (statutory accounting 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;
  • our ability to attract and retain key employees; and legal and other limitations on dividends and other amounts we may receive from our subsidiaries.

For more information regarding these risks and uncertainties as well as certain additional risks that we face, you should refer to the Risk Factors detailed in Item 1A of our 2017 Form 10-K, and to subsequent reports filed from time to time with the SEC. 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 report. 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.
