MGIC Investment Corporation Announces Pricing of Offering of $425 Million of Senior Notes Due 2023

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — MGIC Investment Corporation (NYSE: MTG) (the “Company”) announced today that it priced the public offering and sale of $425 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.750% senior notes due 2023 (the “notes”).

The notes will bear interest at a rate of 5.750% per year, payable semi-annually, in arrears, on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning February 15, 2017.  The notes will mature on August 15, 2023.  

The Company intends to use a portion of the net proceeds from this offering, together with, in certain cases, shares of its common stock, to purchase approximately $292 million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s $500 million of outstanding 2% Convertible Senior Notes due 2020 (“2020 Convertible Notes”).  The Company also intends to use a portion of the net proceeds to purchase shares of its common stock to offset the shares used as partial consideration in the purchase of the 2020 Convertible Notes.  Any remaining proceeds, which the Company currently expects to be approximately $53 million, will be added to the Company’s funds available for general corporate purposes and may be used to purchase additional 2020 Convertible Notes.  The excess of the purchase price of the 2020 Convertible Notes over their par value will be reflected as a loss in the Company’s Statement of Operations in the third quarter of 2016, net of tax.  The Company’s use of proceeds from this offering reflects its current estimates based on its latest discussions with holders of its 2020 Convertible Notes and the closing market price of its common stock on August 1, 2016; however, the Company does not have definitive agreements in place with respect to certain of the anticipated repurchase transactions, and the price at which it purchases shares of its common stock will likely be different, and therefore its actual use of proceeds from this offering may change from these estimates.

Goldman, Sachs & Co. is acting as sole book-running manager and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC is acting as co-manager for the offering.
