Radian Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend on Common Stock and Approves New Share Repurchase Authorization


Radian Group Inc. announced today 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 September 7, 2018, to stockholders of
record as of August 27, 2018.

In addition, the Board of Directors has approved a new share repurchase
program that enables the company to repurchase its common stock. The
shares may be purchased in the open market or in privately negotiated
transactions. The company's previous $50 million share repurchase
program was fully utilized and expired on June 30, 2018.

The new authorization provides Radian the flexibility to repurchase
shares opportunistically from time to time and spend up to $100 million,
based on market and business conditions, stock price and other factors.
The authorization is effective immediately and expires on July 31, 2019.
Radian plans to utilize a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit the
company to purchase shares, at pre-determined price targets, when it may
otherwise be precluded from doing so.
