Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN) today announced the pricing of $484 million aggregate principal amount of 12.5-year mortgage insurance-linked notes (ILNs) issued by Eagle Re 2021-2 Ltd. (Eagle Re), a newly-formed Bermuda special purpose insurer that is not a subsidiary or affiliate of Radian Guaranty Inc. The notes were offered for sale to eligible third-party capital markets investors in an unregistered private offering.
In connection with the transaction, Radian Group’s wholly owned subsidiary, Radian Guaranty, will receive $484 million of fully collateralized excess of loss reinsurance protection from Eagle Re at closing, covering an existing portfolio of mortgage insurance policies written predominantly from January 1, 2021 through and including July 31, 2021. The excess of loss reinsurance coverage provides Radian Guaranty protection for aggregate losses on subject loans beginning at a 2.25% cumulative claim rate threshold and continuing up to an eventual 6.75% aggregate detachment level. Radian Guaranty expects to receive initial PMIERs credit for the portion of coverage attaching within the current risk-based required asset charge on subject loans and additional benefit in the future if the PMIERs requirement on subject loans increases, all subject to GSE approval. The offering is expected to close on November 9, 2021, subject to customary conditions.
Eagle Re has funded its reinsurance obligations by issuing five classes of ILNs with a 12.5-year maturity and 7-year call option to eligible third-party capital markets investors in an unregistered private offering. The ILNs are non-recourse to Radian Group or its subsidiaries and affiliates.
The ILNs issued by Eagle Re consist of the following five classes:
- $118,341,000 Class M-1A Notes with a coupon equal to one-month SOFR plus 155 basis points
