Deal Highlights

We are a leading private mortgage insurance company serving the United States housing finance market since 1981 with a mission to help people buy a house and keep it their home. We operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and have a leading platform based on long-tenured customer relationships with mortgage lenders, underwriting excellence and prudent risk and capital management practices. We believe our operating and technological capabilities ensure a superior customer experience and drive new business volume at attractive risk-adjusted returns. For the full years ended December 31, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 we generated NIW of $99.9 billion, $62.4 billion, $40.0 billion, $38.9 billion and $42.7 billion, respectively. Our market share for the same periods was approximately 16.6%, 16.3%, 13.7%, 14.5% and 15.9%, respectively, having grown from 12.0% in 2012. Net income was $370 million and $678 million in 2020 and 2019, respectively. Adjusted operating income was $373 million and $562 million for 2020 and 2019, respectively. Our 2020 results of operations were impacted by increased loss reserves related to COVID-19. As a private mortgage insurer, we play a critical role in the United States housing finance system. We provide credit protection to mortgage lenders and investors, covering a portion of the unpaid principal balance of Low-Down Payment Loans. Our credit protection frequently provides families access to homeownership sooner than would otherwise be possible. We facilitate the sale of mortgages to the secondary market, including to the GSEs and private investors, and protect the balance sheets of mortgage lenders that retain mortgages in their portfolios. Credit protection and liquidity through secondary market sales allow mortgage lenders to increase their lending capacity, manage risk and expand financing access to prospective homeowners, many of whom are FTHBs. We have a large and diverse customer base. As a result of our long-standing presence in the industry, we have built and maintained enduring relationships across the mortgage origination market, including with national banks, non-bank mortgage lenders, local mortgage bankers, community banks and credit unions. In both 2019 and 2020, we provided new insurance coverage to approximately 1,800 customers, including 19 of the top 20 mortgage lenders as measured by total 2019 and 2020 mortgage originations (according to Inside Mortgage Finance).
