Radian Group Inc. announced today that its stockholders re-elected ten directors, who serve one-year terms and are re-elected annually. The company’s stockholders approved all proposals recommended by the board of directors and presented for vote at Radian’s 2015 Annual Meeting, including an advisory proposal on Radian’s executive compensation.

As previously disclosed, Jan Nicholson, a director of Radian since 2003, retired from the Board upon the conclusion of Radian’s 2015 Annual Meeting. The Board was reduced from 11 to 10 members upon Ms. Nicholson’s retirement.

“Radian has been extremely fortunate to have benefited from the service of Jan Nicholson for more than a decade,” said Herbert Wender, Non-Executive Chairman of Radian Group Inc. “We will miss Jan’s sound advice, experience and diplomacy and on behalf of the company I wish her well in her retirement.”

Radian also announced that the company’s Board of Directors approved a regular quarterly dividend on its common stock in the amount of $0.0025 per share, payable on June 8, 2015 to stockholders of record as of May 26, 2015.

Chief Executive Officer S.A. Ibrahim addressed the attendees of Radian’s Annual Meeting by stating, “Over the past several years, our vision for Radian has focused on leading our company out of the downturn by writing strong volumes of profitable mortgage insurance business and positioning our company for future growth and success. We made significant progress in 2014 against both of these priorities.”

Ibrahim added, “Looking ahead, we expect to benefit from the strong credit quality and projected earnings power of our existing mortgage insurance book of business and, longer term, to leverage our new mortgage and real estate services capabilities in order to serve the entire mortgage finance market.”
