MGIC Investment Corporation (NYSE:MTG) has commenced on Monday a $350-million public offering of senior notes due by 2023.

Acting as sole book-running manager and co-manager for the latest public offering of MGIC Investment are Goldman Sachs & Co. and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, respectively.

Purpose of Net Proceeds

The company will use the net proceeds from the public offering to acquire a portion of its outstanding 2% convertible senior notes due by 2020 and probably to acquire a portion of its 9% convertible junior subordinated debentures due by 2063 owned by other investors as well. MGIC Investment also hopes to use the net proceeds from the public offering to offset the shares used as partial consideration in the 2020 convertible notes acquisition. Any remainder will be used for general corporate expenses.
