Item 8.01. Other Events.
Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation (“MGIC”), the wholly owned subsidiary of MGIC Investment Corporation ("MTG"), intends to proceed with a capital markets-based reinsurance transaction with a newly-formed Bermuda special purpose insurer (the “Issuer”). In connection with the proposed transaction, (i) MGIC expects to purchase $318.6 million of excess of loss reinsurance protection from the Issuer, covering an existing portfolio of mortgage insurance policies and (ii) the Issuer will simultaneously issue a like amount of unregistered securities to third party capital markets investors that are linked to the reinsurance coverage. The Issuer is not a subsidiary or affiliate of MGIC.
The mortgage insurance-linked note offering is expected to close by the end of October 2018, subject to market and other customary conditions. There can be no assurances that such offering or the related reinsurance transaction will be completed.
The securities described herein have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. This report shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any of the aforementioned securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any state or jurisdiction in which, or to any person to whom, such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
