Radian Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017 Financial Results

Adjusted diluted net operating income per share for the fourth quarter of $0.51, an increase of 24% year-over-year, and for the full year of $1.82, an increase of 17% year-over-year --

Increases PMIERs excess to $450 million, or 14% of Minimum Required Assets as of December 31, 2017 --

Radian Group Inc. (RDN) today reported net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, of $6.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, which includes an incremental tax provision of $102.6 million, representing the estimated impact of recently enacted tax reform, as discussed below. Net income for the full year 2017 was $121.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, which, in addition to the incremental tax provision, includes impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets related to the Mortgage and Real Estate Services segment of $130.9 million, net of tax. This compares to net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, of $61.1 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, and net income for the full year 2016 of $308.3 million, or $1.37 per diluted share.

The non-cash tax expense of $102.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 represents the estimated impact of recently enacted tax reform, as a result of the remeasurement of the company’s net deferred tax assets to reflect lower enacted corporate tax rates. The impact of this remeasurement was a reduction of $0.47 per diluted share in the fourth quarter and for the full year 2017.

FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR HIGHLIGHTS AND RECENT EVENTS

Mortgage Insurance

MI new insurance written (NIW) grew to $53.9 billion for the full year 2017, an increase of 7 percent compared to $50.5 billion for the prior year. NIW was $14.4 billion for the fourth quarter, compared to $15.1 billion in the third quarter of 2017 and an increase of 4 percent compared to $13.9 billion in the prior-year quarter. -- NIW for the full year 2017 represented record volume written on a flow basis for the company.

Of the $14.4 billion in NIW in the fourth quarter of 2017, 23 percent was written with single premiums. After consideration of the 35 percent ceded under the Single Premium Quota Share Reinsurance Transaction (Single Premium QSR), net single premiums were 15 percent of new business written in the fourth quarter of 2017. However, as previously announced effective December 31, 2017, the company amended its 2016 Single Premium QSR to increase the amount of ceded risk for 2015 through 2017 vintages under the agreement from 35 percent to 65 percent. After consideration of the increased cession percentage, net single premiums represented 8 percent of new business written in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Purchase originations accounted for 88 percent of total NIW in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to 91 percent in the third quarter of 2017, and 73 percent a year ago.

Total primary mortgage insurance in force as of December 31, 2017, grew to $200.7 billion, an increase of 2 percent compared to $196.5 billion as of September 30, 2017, and an increase of 9 percent compared to $183.5 billion as of December 31, 2016. -- The composition of Radian’s mortgage insurance portfolio continues to improve, with 92 percent consisting of new business written after 2008, including those loans that successfully completed the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP).

Persistency, which is the percentage of mortgage insurance that remains in force after a twelve-month period, was 81.1 percent as of December 31, 2017, compared to 80.0 percent as of September 30, 2017 and 76.7 percent as of December 31, 2016. Annualized persistency for the three months ended December 31, 2017, was 79.4 percent, compared to 80.4 percent for the three months ended September 30, 2017, and 76.8 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2016.

Total net premiums earned were $245.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to $236.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, and $233.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. -- Accelerated revenue recognition due to single premium policy cancellations was $21.2 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2017, and $26.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Net of reinsurance, accelerated revenue recognition due to single premium policy cancellations was $11.1 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $8.3 million in the third quarter of 2017, and $15.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Ceded premiums of $15.0 million, $13.8 million and $18.2 million for the quarters ended December 31, 2017, September 30, 2017, and December 31, 2016, respectively, are net of accrued profit commission on reinsurance transactions of $7.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to $7.4 million in the third quarter of 2017, and $8.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Direct mortgage insurance premium yield was 52 basis points in the fourth quarter, compared to 52 basis points in the third quarter of 2017, and 55 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Total net mortgage insurance premium yield, which includes the impact of ceded premiums and accrued profit commission, was 49 basis points in both the fourth and third quarters of 2017, compared to 51 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The mortgage insurance provision for losses was $35.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to $36.0 million in the third quarter of 2017, and $54.7 million in the prior-year period. -- The total number of primary delinquent loans was 27,922 in the fourth quarter, an increase of 17 percent compared to 23,826 in the third quarter of 2017, primarily driven by new notices of default from areas affected by major 2017 hurricanes. The total number of primary delinquent loans included 7,051 from hurricane-affected areas in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to 2,934 in the third quarter of 2017. The company believes that these hurricane-related delinquencies have reached their peak and, based on past experience, continues to expect that these delinquencies will not result in a material number of new paid claims. -- The total number of primary delinquent loans decreased by 4 percent from 29,105 in the fourth quarter of 2016. Excluding the impact from hurricane-affected areas, the total number of primary delinquent loans decreased by 19 percent from 25,784 in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The total number of primary new notices of default increased by 49 percent in the fourth quarter from the third quarter of 2017, and increased by 38 percent from the fourth quarter of 2016. Excluding the new notices of default from hurricane-affected areas, the total number of primary new notices of default increased by 3 percent in the fourth quarter from the third quarter of 2017, and decreased by 7 percent from the fourth quarter of 2016.

The primary mortgage insurance delinquency rate was 2.9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to 2.5 percent in the third quarter of 2017, and 3.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The loss ratio in the fourth quarter was 14.4 percent, compared to 15.2 percent in the third quarter of 2017 and 23.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Mortgage insurance loss reserves were $507.6 million as of December 31, 2017, compared to $556.5 million as of September 30, 2017, and $760.3 million as of December 31, 2016.

Primary reserve per primary default (excluding IBNR and other reserves) was $17,103 as of December 31, 2017. Excluding the impact of reserves and defaults related to hurricane-affected areas, the primary reserve per primary default would have been approximately $20,500. This compares to primary reserve per primary default of $21,367 as of September 30, 2017, and $22,503 as of December 31, 2016.

Total mortgage insurance claims paid were $85.5 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $131.5 million in the third quarter of 2017, and $116.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Excluding the impact of commutations and captive terminations, claims paid were $58.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, and $76.5 million in the third quarter of 2017. In addition, the company’s pending claim inventory declined 38 percent from the fourth quarter of 2016. For the full year 2017, total net claims paid were $390.4 million, compared to $417.6 million for the full year 2016.

Mortgage and Real Estate Services

As previously announced, the company committed to a restructuring plan in October 2017, and incurred related charges in the fourth quarter of $5.2 million and $17.3 million for the full-year 2017. Additional pretax charges of approximately $4 million, primarily in cash, are expected to be recognized within the next twelve months.

The estimated total restructuring charges of $21 million are expected to consist of $11 million in asset impairments and loss on sale, $7 million in employee severance and benefit costs, $2 million in facility and lease termination costs, and $1 million in contract termination and other costs.

Total revenues for the fourth quarter were $40.7 million, compared to $41.1 million for the third quarter of 2017, and $52.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2016. Total revenues for the full year 2017 were $161.8 million, compared to $177.2 million for the same period of 2016.

The adjusted pretax operating income before corporate allocations for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, which includes $1.4 million in restructuring and other exit costs, was $2.9 million, compared to a loss of $4.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, and income of $3.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. The adjusted pretax operating loss before corporate allocations for the full year 2017, which includes $6.8 million in restructuring and other exit costs, was $1.8 million, compared to income of $6.1 million for the prior year.

Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (Services adjusted EBITDA) for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, which includes $1.4 million in restructuring and other exit costs, was income of $3.8 million, compared to a loss of $3.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, and income of $4.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. Services adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2017, which includes $6.8 million in restructuring and other exit costs, was $2.0 million, compared to $9.2 million for the prior year period. Additional details regarding the non-GAAP measure Services adjusted EBITDA may be found in Exhibits F and G.

Consolidated Expenses

Other operating expenses were $66.0 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $64.2 million in the third quarter of 2017, and $62.4 million in the fourth quarter of last year. Details regarding notable variable items impacting other operating expenses may be found in Exhibit D.

CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY UPDATE

Radian took several actions in 2017 in order to improve its capital position, increase liquidity, enhance its return on capital, increase its financial flexibility and cost-effectively strengthen the financial position of Radian Guaranty under the Private Mortgage Insurer Eligibility Requirements (PMIERs). As of December 31, 2017, Radian Group maintained $229 million of available liquidity. Total liquidity, which includes the company’s $225 million unsecured revolving credit facility entered into in October 2017, was $454 million as of December 31, 2017.

During the fourth quarter of 2017 and consistent with its capital plan, Radian settled all of its remaining convertible senior notes outstanding.

In addition, as previously announced: -- Radian Guaranty, the principal MI subsidiary of Radian Group, agreed with its reinsurance providers to increase the cession of business for its first single-premium MI quota share reinsurance arrangement, which was entered into in 2016. The cession of business increased from 35 to 65 percent for single-premium policies with effective dates in 2015-2017. This increased cession, which was effective December 31, 2017, improved Radian Guaranty’s PMIERs position at December 31, 2017, and has been approved by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (GSEs).

On December 28, 2017, Radian Group transferred $100 million of cash and marketable securities to Radian Guaranty in exchange for a surplus note. The intercompany surplus note has a 0 percent interest rate and a stated maturity date of December 31, 2027. The surplus note may be redeemed at any time upon 30 days prior notice, subject to the approval of the Pennsylvania Insurance Department. Any redemption of the surplus note increases holding company liquidity by the corresponding amount of the redemption.

As discussed above, Radian Guaranty experienced a recent increase in reported delinquencies in hurricane-affected areas. Given that the PMIERs require Radian to maintain significantly more Minimum Required Assets for delinquent loans than for performing loans, the company’s Minimum Required Assets from hurricane-affected areas increased by approximately $100 million as of December 31, 2017, as compared to September 30, 2017. The company expects these Minimum Required Assets to decrease given the expectation that substantially all of the hurricane-related defaults will cure within the next six to twelve months.

As a result of capital actions taken in the fourth quarter of 2017 and as described above, at December 31, 2017, Radian Guaranty’s Available Assets under the PMIERs were approximately $3.7 billion and its Minimum Required Assets under the PMIERs were approximately $3.2 billion, resulting in an excess of approximately $450 million, or 14 percent. This compares to an excess of approximately $237 million, or 7 percent, at September 30, 2017.

Radian Guaranty received a summary of proposed changes to the PMIERs on December 18, 2017, that are being recommended to the Federal Housing Finance Agency by the GSEs. Based on this initial summary, which remains subject to comment by the private mortgage insurance industry, Radian expects to be able to fully comply with the proposed PMIERs and to maintain an excess of Available Assets over Minimum Required Assets under the PMIERs as of the expected effective date in late 2018, without a need to take further actions to do so. The company’s expectation is not dependent upon the existing surplus note and is based on its projections for positive operating results in 2018, its strong capital position, and the benefits of its reinsurance programs.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Radian believes that adjusted pretax operating income and adjusted diluted net operating income per share (non-GAAP measures) facilitate evaluation of the company’s fundamental financial performance and provide relevant and meaningful information to investors about the ongoing operating results of the company. On a consolidated basis, these measures are not recognized in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and should not be considered in isolation or viewed as substitutes for GAAP measures of performance. The measures described below have been established in order to increase transparency for the purpose of evaluating the company’s operating trends and enabling more meaningful comparisons with Radian’s competitors.

Adjusted pretax operating income is defined as earnings excluding the impact of certain items that are not viewed as part of the operating performance of the company’s primary activities, or not expected to result in an economic impact equal to the amount reflected in pretax income (loss). Adjusted pretax operating income adjusts GAAP pretax income (loss) to remove the effects of: (i) net gains (losses) on investments and other financial instruments; (ii) loss on induced conversion and debt extinguishment; (iii) acquisition-related expenses; (iv) amortization or impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets; and (v) net impairment losses recognized in earnings and losses from the sale of lines of business. Adjusted diluted net operating income per share represents a diluted net income per share calculation using as its basis adjusted pretax operating income, net of taxes at the company’s statutory tax rate for the period.

The company has also presented a non-GAAP measure for tangible book value per share, which represents book value per share less the per-share impact of goodwill and other intangible assets, net. The company uses this measure to assess the quality and growth of its capital. Because tangible book value per share is a widely used financial measure which focuses on the underlying fundamentals of the company’s financial position and operating trends without the impact of goodwill and other intangible assets, the company believes that current and prospective investors may find it useful in their analysis.

In addition to the above non-GAAP measures for the consolidated company, the company also presents as supplemental information a non-GAAP measure for the Services segment, representing earnings before interest, income tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). Services adjusted EBITDA is calculated by using the Services segment’s adjusted pretax operating income as described above, further adjusted to remove the impact of depreciation and corporate allocations for interest and operating expenses. Services adjusted EBITDA is presented to facilitate comparisons with other services companies, since it is a widely accepted measure of performance in the services industry.

See Exhibit F or Radian’s website for a description of these items, as well as Exhibit G for reconciliations to the most comparable consolidated GAAP measures.

Radian Group Inc. and Subsidiaries
Definition of Consolidated Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Exhibit F (page 1 of 2)
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the traditional GAAP financial measures, we have
presented "adjusted pretax operating income" and "adjusted diluted
net operating income per share," non-GAAP financial measures for the
consolidated company, among our key performance indicators to
evaluate our fundamental financial performance. These non-GAAP
financial measures align with the way the Company’s business
performance is evaluated by both management and the board of
directors. These measures have been established in order to increase
transparency for the purposes of evaluating our operating trends and
enabling more meaningful comparisons with our peers. Although on a
consolidated basis "adjusted pretax operating income" and "adjusted
diluted net operating income per share" are non-GAAP financial
measures, we believe these measures aid in understanding the
underlying performance of our operations. Our senior management,
including our Chief Executive Officer (Radian’s chief operating
decision maker), uses adjusted pretax operating income (loss) as our
primary measure to evaluate the fundamental financial performance of
the Company’s business segments and to allocate resources to the
segments.
Adjusted pretax operating income is defined as GAAP consolidated
pretax income (loss) excluding the effects of: (i) net gains
(losses) on investments and other financial instruments; (ii) loss
on induced conversion and debt extinguishment; (iii)
acquisition-related expenses; (iv) amortization or impairment of
goodwill and other intangible assets; and (v) net impairment losses
recognized in earnings and losses from the sale of lines of
business. Adjusted diluted net operating income per share is
calculated by dividing (i) adjusted pretax operating income
attributable to common shareholders, net of taxes computed using the
company’s statutory tax rate, by (ii) the sum of the weighted
average number of common shares outstanding and all dilutive
potential common shares outstanding. Interest expense on convertible
debt, share dilution from convertible debt and the impact of
share-based compensation arrangements have been reflected in the per
share calculations consistent with the accounting standard regarding
earnings per share, whenever the impact is dilutive.
Although adjusted pretax operating income excludes certain items
that have occurred in the past and are expected to occur in the
future, the excluded items represent those that are: (i) not viewed
as part of the operating performance of our primary activities or
(ii) not expected to result in an economic impact equal to the
amount reflected in pretax income. These adjustments, along with the
reasons for their treatment, are described below.
(1)
Net gains (losses) on investments and other financial
instruments. The recognition of realized investment gains or
losses can vary significantly across periods as the activity is
highly discretionary based on the timing of individual securities
sales due to such factors as market opportunities, our tax and
capital profile and overall market cycles. Unrealized investment
gains and losses arise primarily from changes in the market value
of our investments that are classified as trading securities.
These valuation adjustments may not necessarily result in realized
economic gains or losses.
Trends in the profitability of our fundamental operating activities
can be more clearly identified without the fluctuations of these
realized and unrealized gains or losses. We do not view them to be
indicative of our fundamental operating activities. Therefore, these
items are excluded from our calculation of adjusted pretax operating
income (loss).
(2)
Loss on induced conversion and debt extinguishment. Gains
or losses on early extinguishment of debt and losses incurred to
purchase our convertible debt prior to maturity are discretionary
activities that are undertaken in order to take advantage of
market opportunities to strengthen our financial and capital
positions; therefore, we do not view these activities as part of
our operating performance. Such transactions do not reflect
expected future operations and do not provide meaningful insight
regarding our current or past operating trends. Therefore, these
items are excluded from our calculation of adjusted pretax
operating income (loss).
(3)
Acquisition-related expenses. Acquisition-related expenses
represent the costs incurred to effect an acquisition of a
business (i.e., a business combination). Because we pursue
acquisitions on a strategic and selective basis and not in the
ordinary course of our business, we do not view
acquisition-related expenses as a consequence of a primary
business activity. Therefore, we do not consider these expenses to
be part of our operating performance and they are excluded from
our calculation of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).
(4)
Amortization or impairment of goodwill and other intangible
assets. Amortization of intangible assets represents the
periodic expense required to amortize the cost of intangible
assets over their estimated useful lives. Intangible assets with
an indefinite useful life are also periodically reviewed for
potential impairment, and impairment adjustments are made whenever
appropriate. These charges are not viewed as part of the operating
performance of our primary activities and therefore are excluded
from our calculation of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).
Radian Group Inc. and Subsidiaries
Definition of Consolidated Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Exhibit F (page 2 of 2)
(5)
Net impairment losses recognized in earnings and losses from
the sale of lines of business. The recognition of net
impairment losses on investments and the impairment of other
long-lived assets does not result in a cash payment and can vary
significantly in both amount and frequency, depending on market
credit cycles and other factors. Losses from the sale of lines of
business are highly discretionary as a result of strategic
restructuring decisions, and generally do not occur in the normal
course of our business. We do not view these losses to be
indicative of our fundamental operating activities. Therefore,
whenever these losses occur, we exclude them from our calculation
of adjusted pretax operating income (loss).
We have also presented a non-GAAP measure for tangible book value
per share, which represents book value per share less the per-share
impact of goodwill and other intangible assets, net. We use this
measure to assess the quality and growth of our capital. Because
tangible book value per share is a widely-used financial measure
which focuses on the underlying fundamentals of our financial
position and operating trends without the impact of goodwill and
other intangible assets, we believe that current and prospective
investors may find it useful in their analysis of the Company.
In addition to the above non-GAAP measures for the consolidated
company, we also have presented as supplemental information a
non-GAAP measure for our Services segment, representing a measure of
earnings before interest, income tax provision (benefit),
depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"). We calculate Services
adjusted EBITDA by using adjusted pretax operating income as
described above, further adjusted to remove the impact of
depreciation and corporate allocations for interest and operating
expenses. We have presented Services adjusted EBITDA to facilitate
comparisons with other services companies, since it is a widely
accepted measure of performance in the services industry.
See Exhibit G for the reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP
measures, consolidated pretax income (loss), diluted net income
(loss) per share and book value per share, to our non-GAAP financial
measures for the consolidated company, adjusted pretax operating
income, adjusted diluted net operating income per share and tangible
book value per share, respectively. Exhibit G also contains the
reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP measure, net income
(loss), to Services adjusted EBITDA.
Total adjusted pretax operating income, adjusted diluted net
operating income per share, tangible book value per share and
Services adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or
viewed as substitutes for GAAP pretax income (loss), diluted net
income (loss) per share, book value per share or net income (loss).
Our definitions of adjusted pretax operating income, adjusted
diluted net operating income per share, tangible book value per
share or Services adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to
similarly-named measures reported by other companies.

Represents the percentage of direct single premiums written,
after consideration of the 35% single premium NIW ceded under the
2016 Single Premium QSR Transaction. However, effective December
31, 2017, we amended the 2016 Single Premium QSR Transaction to
increase the amount of ceded risk for 2015 through 2017 vintages
under the agreement from 35% to 65%. After consideration of this
increase in the cession percentage, net single premiums
represented 8% of NIW during the fourth quarter of 2017.

At June 30, 2017 and prior, primarily related to expected
payments under the Freddie Mac Agreement. However, during the
third quarter of 2017, the final settlement date under the Freddie
Mac Agreement was reached. Therefore, except for loans with loss
mitigation and claims activity already in process, most of the
loans subject to the Freddie Mac Agreement were removed from RIF
and IIF, because the insurance no longer remains in force.
(2)
Represents ceded losses on captive transactions and quota share

(3)
Includes the impact of reserves and defaults related to areas
designated as individual assistance disaster areas by FEMA ("FEMA
Designated Areas") associated with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Excluding the impact from new defaults received subsequent to
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in these FEMA Designated Areas, this
amount would be approximately $20,500.

Effective December 31, 2017, we amended the 2016 Single Premium
QSR Transaction to increase the amount of ceded risk for 2015
through 2017 vintages under the agreement from 35% to 65%,
resulting in ceded premiums written of $145.7 million for the
fourth quarter of 2017 and an increase of $2.5 billion in ceded
RIF at December 31, 2017.
(5)
The Persistency Rate was reduced by an increase in
cancellations of single premium policies due to increased
cancellations identified by our ongoing servicer monitoring
process for Single Premium Policies.
(6)
During the third quarter of 2017, the final settlement date
under the Freddie Mac Agreement was reached, resulting in a
negative impact to the Persistency Rate due to the removal from
RIF and IIF of most of the loans subject to the Freddie Mac
Agreement.
(7)
The Persistency Rate on a quarterly, annualized basis may be
impacted by seasonality or other factors, and may not be
indicative of full-year trends.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

All statements in this press release that address events, developments or results that we expect or anticipate may occur in the future are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 21E of the Exchange Act and the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In most cases, forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as "anticipate," "may," "will," "could," "should," "would," "expect," "intend," "plan," "goal," "contemplate," "believe," "estimate," "predict," "project," "potential," "continue," "seek," "strategy," "future," "likely" or the negative or other variations on these words and other similar expressions. These statements, which may include, without limitation, projections regarding our future performance and financial condition, are made on the basis of management’s current views and assumptions with respect to future events. Any forward-looking statement is not a guarantee of future performance and actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statement. These statements speak only as of the date they were made, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. We operate in a changing environment where new risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all risks that may affect us. The forward-looking statements, as well as our prospects as a whole, are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation:

changes in economic and political conditions that impact the size of the insurable market, the credit performance of our insured portfolio, and the business prospects of our Services segment;

changes in the way customers, investors, ratings agencies, regulators or legislators perceive our performance, financial strength and future prospects;

Radian Guaranty Inc.’s ability to remain eligible under the PMIERs and other applicable requirements imposed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency and by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (collectively, the "GSEs") to insure loans purchased by the GSEs;

our ability to successfully execute and implement our capital plans and to maintain sufficient holding company liquidity to meet our short- and long-term liquidity needs;

our ability to successfully execute and implement our business plans and strategies, including plans and strategies to reposition our Services segment as well as plans and strategies that require GSE and/or regulatory approvals and licenses;
