PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN) announced today that its stockholders re-elected ten directors, who serve one-year terms and are elected annually.
In addition to the election of directors, the company’s stockholders approved all other proposals recommended by the Board of Directors and presented for vote at Radian’s 2021 Annual Meeting, including an advisory proposal to approve the compensation of Radian’s named executive officers, a new equity compensation plan for Radian and ratification of the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the company’s independent auditors for 2021.
Chief Executive Officer Rick Thornberry addressed the attendees of Radian’s Annual Meeting by stating, “As a diversified mortgage and real estate services business, our products and services have responsibly helped millions of families achieve their dream of homeownership in a sustainable way for nearly 45 years. As we look back at last year, it is safe to say that 2020 did not play out as planned. Despite these challenges, including shifting to a largely virtual work environment, we were able to write record-breaking levels of new business in our Mortgage Segment and grow revenues in our Real Estate Segment.”
Thornberry added, “Our One Radian team has shown an unfaltering commitment to our customers, our company and to each other as we have worked together to successfully navigate this challenging environment. Looking ahead, we are encouraged by the continued signs of improvement in the overall economy, as well as the positive momentum in the housing market and the favorable credit trends within our portfolio.”
As announced earlier this month, the company’s Board of Directors approved a quarterly dividend of $0.14 per share, representing an increase of 12 percent from the previous dividend paid on March 4, 2021. The dividend is payable on June 4, 2021, to stockholders of record as of May 24, 2021.
