Radian Group Inc's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers

We operate in the highly competitive U.S. mortgage insurance industry. Our competitors include other private mortgage insurers and federal and state governmental and quasi-governmental agencies, principally the FHA and VA.

We compete directly with the following six private mortgage insurers:

Arch U.S. MI (acquired CMG Mortgage Company effective January 30, 2014);

Essent Guaranty Inc.;

Genworth Financial Inc.;

Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation;

NMI Holdings, Inc.; and

United Guaranty Corporation.

We compete with other private mortgage insurers primarily on the basis of price, underwriting guidelines, customer relationships, reputation, perceived financial strength (including based on credit ratings) and overall service. Service-based competition includes effective and timely delivery of products, timeliness of claims payments, customer service, timely and accurate servicing of policies, training, loss mitigation efforts and management and field service expertise. Pricing has always been competitive in the mortgage insurance industry. However, the presence of newer entrants in the industry has increased price competition as these companies seek to gain a greater presence in the market and more established industry participants seek to defend their market share and customer relationships. As a result, recent pricing trends have included: (i) the increased use of a spectrum of filed rates to allow for formulaic, risk-based pricing (commonly referred to as “black-box” pricing); (ii) a significant increase in the broad use of customized (often discounted) rates on lender-paid, Single Premium policies, and more recently, on borrower-paid, monthly premium policies; and (iii) overall reductions in standard filed rates on borrower-paid policies. The willingness of mortgage insurers to offer reduced pricing (through filed or customized rates) has been met with an increased demand from certain large lenders for reduced rate products. This has further intensified the pricing environment and has resulted in new pricing levels (whether through filed or customized rates) that private mortgage insurers are expected to meet in order to avoid risking a potential significant loss in NIW.

The heightened pricing competition has occurred in the context of generally higher capital requirements being applied to private mortgage insurers as a result of the PMIERs and more aggressive pricing by the FHA (which is most impactful with respect to high-LTV loans for borrowers with FICO scores below 720). This has produced a marketplace where balancing both targeted returns on new business and an acceptable share of the insured market has become increasingly challenging for all participants. In formulating our strategy in this environment, we have taken a disciplined approach to establishing rates and delivering a mix of business that is expected to produce our targeted level of returns on a blended basis and an acceptable level of NIW. In furtherance of this strategy, we recently: (1) increased our filed rates for lender-paid mortgage insurance; (2) continued to use the authority set forth in our rate filings to provide customized premiums for lender-paid, Single Premium mortgage insurance on a selective and negotiated basis while, importantly, declining to participate in significantly discounted, Single Premium business that has been offered for bid on an aggregated basis (which we estimate represented approximately 5% of the total private mortgage insurance market in 2015); and (3) determined to change our borrower-paid, filed rates in order to remain competitive, which generally will have the effect of decreasing our standard rates on higher FICO business and raising our rates on lower FICO business where the FHA is already very competitive.

We believe our Services business is uniquely positioned as a single provider of an array of outsourced services and solutions to participants in the mortgage value chain and that this position differentiates us from our competitors. We are not aware of any other company that provides a comparable range of services to the residential mortgage and real estate industries. However, our Services business has multiple competitors within each of its individual lines of business. Our competitors mainly include small privately-held companies and subsidiaries of large publicly-traded companies.
Significant competitors within each of our business lines include:

Loan Review and Due Diligence – American Mortgage Consultants, Inc. and JCIII & Associates (consolidated in a business combination as American Mortgage Consultants, Inc., effective December 2015), Digital Risk, LLC, LenderLive Network, Inc., Opus Capital Markets Consultants, LLC and Stewart Lender Services, Inc.

Surveillance – CoreLogic, Inc., Digital Risk, LLC, FTI Consulting, Inc., Pentalpha Surveillance LLC and Promontory Financial Group, LLC

Valuation and Component Services – Carrington Property Services, LLC, ClearCapital.com, Inc., CoreLogic, Inc., Pro Teck Valuation Services, First American, Collateral Analytics and Black Knight Financial Services

REO Management – Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A., Solutionstar Holdings LLC, Stewart Lender Services, Inc. and VRM Mortgage Services

EuroRisk – Deloitte LLP, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, Ernst & Young LLP, KPMG LLP, Situs Group, LLC, Euristix Ltd, Rockstead Ltd and Grant Thornton
Across all business lines, we compete on the basis of industry expertise, price, technology, service levels and relationships.
